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

My room was right beside the main road and all kind of cacophony can be heard. It was close to the summer and our room has no air-conditioning. As noted elsewhere in other reviews, the room is really tiny. Booked through Priceline and cost is approximately $130 USD. Pros - Free internet - Free cold breakfast Cons - Tiny room... More

I spent a girl's weekend here with two friends. The hotel isn't on the water, but it's only an 8 minute drive away. And, on the plus side, its right across the street from the open air mall with great shopping. Our room had two queen beds with a patio and a fireplace. Also a fridge and microwave. The continental... More

We stayed here whilst we visited Monteray, Carmel and drove the fantastic "17 Mile Drive". It was a good enough motel but a little expensive for how average it was. Some of the staff were very unhelpful and curt. This was a pity because others were very pleasant ant helpful. If you are thinking of visiting this area, do your... More
