My husband and I arrived to the Mariposa Inn on our Cali vacation in April 2015. From the outside it was quaint but needed a little work and clean up. Check in was smooth but our room was very small. It was a cute room but lacked cleanliness. Base boards were filthy and the bathroom and the sky light in... More

The hotel is reasonably nice and although a little outdated has been kept clean. The pool was nice, warm and accessible. The breakfast was adequate though a little limited. The only complaint we had was some of the finishing had come apart - the floor transition to bathroom was separated from the floor and there some bugs underneath.

We were looking for a hotel in Monterey that is reasonably price, had free breakfast, microwave and refrigerator. After looking at pictures of the hotel and reading the review we booked the hotel. Once we arrived in the hotel, the pictures in the hotel sight looked the same but I thought the lobby would be bigger (the photo was taken... More

Writing the review largely to give a shout out the the women at the front desk who tried to help us after discovering that the hotel was overbooked and that our hotel.com booking was essentially not valid, despite the fact that it had been booked, paid for and "guaranteed," several months prior. The only notification we received was a call... More

A very nice place just off Hwy 1 in Monterey. The room was very nicely appointed, with nice extra touches. The grounds are lovely with decks and seating areas with gas pits. The pool and hot tub area was also very nice. There is even a area for dogs. My only complaint was that they charged for an extra guest... More

We crammed a lot into our short stay in Monterey including the Big Sur and Carmel before heading off to Yosemite National Park and the Mariposa was perfectly placed to do that. The Mariposa is just a comfy place to be with everything you need to come back to after a days exploring. Evertone was very helpful and the inclusive... More

Clean comfortable suite with a few nice decorating touches. Very comfy bed. Great position for visiting both Monterey Bay and Carmel. Breakfast self-serve and adequate. Pleasant pool area and the whole place has slightly retro feel. Altogether good value.

A good location especially if you want be be away from downtown Monterey but close to amenities. To avoid street noise ask request a room facing the pool. Breakfast is pretty mundane. Our room had a gas fireplace which added to ambience.

Nice place to stay while in Monterey, Hot tub and the pool were great to let the kids unwind before going out to dinner. The front desk had a lot of good food recommendations. We will be back in 2 weeks for a return stay before heading home.
