A 20 minute walk out of the centre of Monterey, this establishment didn't fill us with enthusiasm when we first arrived but the uninspiring exterior masked what was a pleasant and good sized room that was well equipped and air conditioned. No problems with cleanliness and everything worked. The breakfast was adequate though the dining area was a bit small... More

I arrived at this hotel after getting a refund due to very unsanitary conditions at the hotel I booked. This hotel was much better and I was for the most part satisfied. The hotel was clean it was well-kept, the staff was very friendly and the rooms were decent We were a bit confused as we booked two identical rooms... More

We stayed here for 3 nights on our trip up the Pacific Coast Highway and it was a big mistake. I'm genuinely surprised how this 'Hotel' has received positive reviews. The photographer that took their pics for their site must be a genius. Compare my photos and the ones on the site. Where do i begin. 1/ No air-conditioning for... More

We had two rooms for one night. The good---location was easy to find and access Carmel & Monterey. The bad---well, were do I start. The mold all over the shower & bathroom told us immediately that cleaning procedures & standards are not a priority here. See pics. The A/C unit -wall type-- was quite noisy and had to be shut...

We were there for one night. The exterior may look outdated, but the interior is pretty modern and update. The room is very clean, but there's no A/C. I guess in Monterey, they don't use A/C that much, but it does get a little hot after the shower. The breakfast was super crowded I have to bring my breakfast to... More

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
