We changed travel plans at the last minute so arrived in Monterey without reservations. We were very pleased with the Victorian Inn. Courteous staff, clean, large room with a fireplace. We had an upper floor room overlooking the street and were a little concerned about possible noise. We didn't have any issues at all. In fact we were able to... More

This hotel is a short walk to the Aquarium and Cannery Row... since location was our #1 objective, this hotel hit the mark just fine. The room was very large for our family of 5 and even had a fireplace and a small eating area. The room was a bit dated, but that didn't really matter to us. The bathroom... More

An excellent hotel to stay at when visiting the Monterey Bay area. Within easy walking distance to Cannery Row (two blocks) and a short walk to the wharf. The breakfast was great and a large selection of hot and cold foods. There is a great restaurant for fresh seafood called Sea Harvest at 448 Foam St (about half a block... More

This hotel was okay for one night but not great. The room did not feel particularly clean, the TV was very fuzzy, and the bathroom was dingy with a dirty bathtub. The staff, however, was very nice and the breakfast was pretty big but I would not come back.

Thank you for your review and for visiting the Victorian Inn. While we were thrilled that you enjoyed our array of offerings during our complimentary continental breakfast we were all disappointed that we failed to leave you with the fond memories so many of our guests speak of. We can assure you that cleanliness is a top priority of ours... More

When you book this Inn you do not need to worry about anything. From booking to check out your experience is simply wonderful. The Inn is so nice and the staff is so helpful. From a meal reservations to directions they are right on point. From shopping ideas to wine tasting locations they know how to direct you. From morning... More

I have never taken the time to write a negative review on a place. But I feel I need to warn others about my experience. My wife and I decided to stay in Monterey an additional day... so we looked online for some reasonable deals... the place we were staying in was booked the following night... so we could not...

The room was spacious and even had a huge desk and a fireplace in it. It was very charming and inviting. We had stayed in Carmel by the Sea the night before and loved the location and setting more of that place but the room made up for it. They had a nice free breakfast and at night they offered...

They will remember you from visit to visit. We were allowed to see the old, original master bedroom this time - fabulous! The staff is always courteous, helpful, and will give discount coupons for area restaurants (we like The Loose Noodle). The rooms are fine, although the street side can get a little noisy from passing traffic. I love the... More

I am not sure what is so charming about this hotel. It is old, rundown and sketchy. Furthermore, the carpet is old and dirty. The bedding, pillows and towels are old. I do not recommend this hotel, unless your other option is camping or sleeping in your car.

Our brief stay at the Best Western Victorian Inn in Monterey was great. We had a 2 double bed room that faced Foam Street. PROS: Staff was excellent, everything was super clean, close to the action on Cannery-though not in the action, spacious room CONS: no a/c, street noise quiet loud with open windows.
