Stayed here for one night on route to San Diego. We booked a standard room and the room provided was on two floors with two bathrooms, lounge area with fire and pull down bed. This was ideal for our family of 4. Staff were friendly and helpful. Pool was nice and relaxing with pool towels provided. Breakfast was a continental... More

Do not be fooled by the cozy images online. That beautiful fire pit area is not maintained, and it is covered with bird droppings. When this was mentioned to the front desk staff, we were offered a sympathetic smile and an offer of some towels to sit on. The whole place was a bit run-down, although the decor was updated....

We were there July 24-25 traveling with small children. It was pretty warm there, A/C didn't work. All front desk could do was to advise us to open windows. Unfortunately there was road construction going on so that's all we heard all night. We got no cell reception nor wifi. Mold on ceilings in bathroom and general yucky overall feeling.... More

We bought our stay on Hotwire. It was not the best deal in all honesty, but the advertisement boasted a fitness center. When we drove up, we were disappointed by the exterior of the building. The room looked nice with better decor than other similar hotels on Munras. The owners have put done a good job of renovatibg the inside... More

I looked at several reviews of properties on the Monterey peninsula and went with Mariposa Inn and Suites because we liked the location away from the immediate downtown area and the online pictures looked nice. The price was also reasonable for the value. We checked in around 10 pm and the desk clerk was obviously not thrilled to be working... More

Great location just off main road. Large shopping centre just across road. Room exceeded expectations with separate living area. Beautiful decked area out front leading down to pool and jacuzzi. Free parking, wifi, computer and printer at reception. Would highly recommend!!

We always go to monterey for a little bit of get away from our daily stress and we pick this hotel because they had great pics online. Front desk needs to be more friendly and upbeat. We went to our room did not look around much because we were headed out for dinner. When we got back we notice the... More

Stayed here in June 2014 for 1 night. This hotel was part of a package holiday that I was taking so I did not choose it myself, but I would definitely stay here again, if I was in the Monterery/Carmel area. Our room was on the 3rd floor overlooking the pool/spa. Great room, with separate tv space and bedroom area.... More

We stayed only one night on a drive down the coast but we were very happy with the hotel. The room was huge and clean, breakfast was ok with the standard continental but with a fresh waffle machine. Lady on the desk was friendly and helpful hobbling around on a strapped up leg :-) not much more to say as... More
