We were in town for a wedding and my husband and I wanted something with a bit more personality than the Best Western to spend the night. We stayed in The Suite, which had a bottle of sparkling wine on ice, and chocolate dipped strawberries waiting for us as we we're shown our room! Although the stay was a bit... More

While the Martine Inn wasn't quite our style, we decided to give it a try because of the of good reviews and amazing vistas. We were not disappointed. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. And morning breakfast looking out over the ocean was such a great way to start the day. Just a few steps off the main walking/biking... More

A top notch place to visit Pacific Grove. The staff is great as well as the host Don Martine who is a former local racer and restorer of MG'S. Its easy walking distance the Cannery Row and has wonderful views of the bay. A bit pricy but well within the going rate for seaside Inns with great history. Will stay... More

My wife and I stayed at the Martine Inn while participating in the Pacific Grove Triathlon. It was a perfect location for the race and our experience was one that we'd love to have again. This is a perfect hotel for couples looking to enjoy the Lovers Point experience!

The Martine Inn is my favorite bed & breakfast. The ambiance is sophisticate yet the atmosphere is warm and welcoming. The location is beautiful, the building hugs you with a unique charm and service is excellent.

You have experienced the feeling I first had when I lived in the inn building almost 45 years ago. The design, layout, location and view make you incredibly comfortable almost immediately. That is why we developed the inn. Your review is greatly appreciated. More

My husband and I spent two nights at the Martine Inn for our 10th Anniversary and our experience could not have been better!

The Martine Inn is on a seafront road just outside of the main Monterey attractions so has the advantages of a quiet location but within very easy walking distance of the Aquarium, Cannery Row etc. It is set back slightly from the road leaving a very useful and welcome car parking area as this place gets very full of day...

We stayed at this location because of its great location and nice views. The place has a very Victorian look but the facilities are top notch. We enjoyed the view from our room as well as the great breakfasts and the hors d'oeuvre. I'd definitely recommend this place to people looking for an alternative to big hotel chains.

Stayed here for our 17th anniversary for one night. It was very close to the aquarium, which was great, and looks out over the sea. I wasn't aware this was a B&B when it was booked (I used a concierge service), and probably would have chosen somewhere else. I have trouble seeing the value in paying more for old furniture....

If I could offer one bit of advice to anyone who is trying a lodging facility for the first time it is, book with the actual facility not through a 3rd party. If you do not like museum quality american antiques you will not like the Martine Inn. We are a Boutique Hotel or BnB. If you had either gone... More
