I stayed with my wife and 5 year old daughter for 3 nights Friday to Monday over the Thanksgiving weekend. The inn was impeccably clean, the staff friendly, add the fireplace added the right touch. Don't expect much from the breakfast though - just toast and juice mainly with some pasteries. The pool was heated but still too cold. The... More

My wife and I stayed one night at the Mariposa Inn in mid-November, 2008. The hotel was remodeled this year with a tasteful modern theme. The grounds were nicely landscaped with various flowers and shrubs. The hotel is a 2.7 mile drive to the Monterey Aquarium. Our room included a 32" flat screen TV, small refrigerator, microwave, free in-room WiFi,... More

We had stayed at this hotel years ago, like 10 years...the location is terrific, but the accomodations at that time were dated. Now they are all completely updated. We have 4 kids, and took them all to Monterey for a night for our 17th wedding anniversary. We reserved two rooms. There were fireplaces in both rooms, and everything was updated,... More

The Mariposa Inn is comfortable and clean. We enjoyed the atmosphere and the bed king size bed was very comfortable. The fireplace was the romantic touch that we were looking to enjoy. Though it is too far to walk to Cannery Row or the Wharf, the drive is only 5-10 minutes away and the location was relatively quiet. We had... More

The Mariposa Inn has recently been completely renovated and they have done a marvelous job. The decor is modern, warm and inviting. I had wanted to book a double queen room, but none were available. They offered us one of the townhouses at a discounted rate because the could not accomodate our initial request. The townhouse was beautiful with a... More

The only nice thing I can say about this place is that they have some nice landscaping, but that is confined to a single little garden. Other than that, it was a bad experience. First of all, contrary to the price listed on Tripadvisor, our room cost $229. It was the honeymoon room with a hot tub and a flat... More

For the price, this hotel is decent. The rooms are ample in size and have average accommodations. However, there is free high speed internet in the rooms, which was an unexpected perk. The hotel isn't located within walking distance of anything except other hotels so be prepared to drive to dinner. The continental breakfast was nice and the hotel staff... More

My family visited the Mariposa in August 07. We fit seven people tightly into the townhome room in the Mariposa. On the bottom floor were a pull out bed and a bed that came down from the wall. That was nice as we saved money on getting another room. There was also a full bathroom downstairs. The location is great-... More

They call it the best kept secret of Monterey, and for a family of 5, it may well be. We stayed there for 3 days during the first week of August. The townhomes have 2 full bathrooms, and are very well accommodated. The Mariposa is directly across a beautiful mall, and only 5 minutes from the water. The staff was... More
