I stayed at the Victorian Inn while in Monterey, CA and found it to be nice. My room was nice and clean & had a great fire place. All of the rooms have fire places as well as a patio or balcony. The weather was great so I was able to keep my patio door open to allow the cool... More

This hotel was a very nice surprise. It is block from the Monterey Bay walking path that takes you back and forth between downtown and the Cannery District. The staff is amazingly friendly genuinely not because they have to be. Rooms are large, clean and well maintained. Free hot breakfast is a nice perk as well. The hotel is not... More

We stayed here 2 nights in October. The location is great, just a couple blocks to the bay and 10-15 minute walk to the Aquarium and wharf. The staff was very friendly. The included continental breakfast was above my expectations as well. They provide a wide variety of breads, eggs/hot items, cereal, juices/coffee. The room was very spacious and had... More

We spent two nights at the Victorian Inn. The room was a good size with large bed and some wingchairs and fireplace which were both nice touches. We were given a room on the ground floor though which proved very noisy due to people upstairs. It was like being in an old house with squeaking floorboards or elephants walking around... More

We have stayed here a few times over the years. It is a hotel that looks like a large Victorian home from the street. Staff is helpful and friendly. Prices are great for the area. There are many smaller hotel properties in the area that have become run down- if looking for a nice stay were you feel spoiled without... More

I had extensively researched the hotels within walking distance from Monterey's Cannery Row. I was shocked to see how expensive most of these hotels were (avg $500 per night for even a glimpse of the bay). The Best Western Plus Victorian Inn was $250 a night for the best room in the hotel (yes, I know that price for a... More

This property has a great location, just a few blocks from cannery row and the aquarium. The rooms are spacious and very nice with a great gas fireplace. The breakfast is good with premade omlettes and sausage along with the standard cereals and muffins. The desk was very helpful with directions and last minute needs(razor and shave creme). The only... More

This was one of the best hotels we stayed in on our recent road trip. They actually honoured our room requests and we even got an unexpected view of the sea. The room was very spacious and clean and the location great. The staff were so extremely helpful and positively charming and i am surprised that some reviews experienced otherwise.... More

While this hotel is in walking distance of many restaurants and Cannery Row, it was still overpriced for the quality Also felt staff was not overly friendly (they were not rude, just did not seem as friendly and/or helpful as they could have been). Did not experience any problems, just overall was a mediocre experience. And having to pay to... More

Very nice large room with a fireplace. Room was updated and clean. Loved the wine and cheese reception in the afternoon. There is a complimentary breakfast with many items to choose from. We will stay here again.
