We stayed at the Mariposa Inn and Suites on a West Coast fly-drive for our honeymoon trip. We knew we wanted to go whale watching in the Monterey area so looked about for a while to find a nice hotel within our mid-range price category with a guaranteed car parking space...as we didn't want to faff with on-street somewhere not...

We found the Mariposa Inn & Suites through the Monterey Information centre. They had just had a call from the Inn to say they had 3 rooms available at a great rate. We drove to the Mariposa to check out the room. We were greeted by Sherry :) We were given a Premium Room for a great price. The room... More

First of all...great location. Easy access to Highway 1 & across the street from DelMonte Shopping Plaza...nice shopping area with movie theater if weather not great. The hotel itself provided very nice accommodations. Yes, a few cosmetic repairs were needed but overall a very nice updated room with a comfortable bed. Very nice breakfast and nice landscaping. Pool and hot... More

We had a better than expected stay. I booked the day before, so I was a little nervous. The only cons were the distance from downtown Monterey (you're definitely not in the heart of it) and the room was not that quiet (we could hear the family above us wake up in the morning). The service was friendly and the... More

The closer you get to Cannery row the more zeros you add on to hotel prices. While I like luxury- I also like to find value -no matter what price point, and while the Mariposa has some pitfalls, i believe it is at an excellent price point for value given the area. CAVEAT - this hotel changes prices like all... More

We recently (Mar 3, 2015) stopped here while on a trip down the California coast. I would recommend this inn to anyone. The rooms are a little bigger than a typical hotel room. Ours had a nice gas fireplace, lounge chair and desk. The washroom was large and the shower was great (hot with good water pressure). The pictures are... More

Stayed here on our way from San Fran to LA. Lovely rooms and great free breakfast. Not very impressive from the outside but beautiful inside. Would stay again if I was visiting the area. Shopping centre nearby.

The room itself looked okay, the bathroom looked beat up and I couldn't tell if the shower grout was moldy or not. The sink stopper also looked either moldy or oxidized. Not the best impression. The front desk person was nice only after she had checked me in and advised me of where to park the car. It is a... More

This Inn looks good in the pictures and the rooms are quite all right, but it is such a charming place like the pictures shows. It is situated in a cross road and the charming area that we recognized from the pictures with the fire pit - was tiny, backed up to the road and was closed off. We were... More

This is the worst hotel I've ever stayed at, don't cheap out, spend the extra money and don't stay here. My room smelt like cigarettes and was an expensive version of motel 6. The staff was rude at check in and I felt dirty after sleeping in the bed here.
