Our stay at the Martine Inn was lovely! We stayed for only one night (sadly). The inn is very charming and you feel like you have stepped back in time a little when you walk in. Our host was very nice and gave us a quick tour and let us know how the inn worked. We stayed in the Early... More

I've stayed at the Martine Inn for several years, and the service, attention and location are perfect. You can walk anywhere, and they have parking on the premises which is invaluable. They can also provide you with a ticket to the Aquarium (you purchase it) so you don't have to wait in lines. The food is excellent, and the rooms... More

Charming old bed and breakfast with lots of nice touches. Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries in our room with fireplace ready to light. We splurged on a view room which was worth it but there are also communal spaces with ocean views.Complimentary wine and goodies in the evening and tea/coffee/snacks available all day. Great location near Monterey and Pacific Grove--perfect... More

Fabulous service, incredible attention to detail, an amazing location - we couldn't have imagined more! My wife and I experienced a wonderful stay at the Martine Inn last week. Our room (Brass) was perfect - spacious, quiet and even included a cozy fireplace for us to curl up after a fun filled day. The grounds were impeccable and beautiful. It... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The atmosphere takes you back in time, which lends to that real sense of getting away. The location is within walking distance of Lover's Point and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Morning breakfast was great and evening appetizer and wine made for a comfortable stay. We stayed in one of the King rooms, which I think... More

When you feel that there is no other place like this in the world – this is what is called "Boutique". Antique furniture, huge windows opened to the wide ocean, homemade pastries, a gift when you check out, perfect service, and above all Don Martine, the founder, that personally chats evening and morning with each guest to make sure that...

We loved staying here. There are 25 rooms. In the evening they put out hot and cold hors d'oeuvres and wine and soft drinks. In the mornings breakfast is made to order. Starting with fruit juice , coffee or tea, then a bakery product and fruit, then a hot egg dish. You will not be hungry for lunch until 2:00;... More

We had a lovely time. Staff was very friendly, food was great and we loved our morning and evening fireplace time. Martine Inn is within walking distance to Monterey Bay Aquarium and many great restaurants and shops.

I came to San Francisco to visit my daughter and we decided to go south and found the Martine Inn on line. We couldn't have been anymore satisfied with our stay there.

The staff is very welcoming, attentive and professional. Our room had so much character. It seemed that it was completely furnished with authentic 19th-century pieces, including a spacious canopied, four-poster bed that was very comfortable. Room also had marble-top table, working fireplace, and three sets of elegant draperies. Location right on Ocean View Boulevard can't be beat. Tasty breakfast is... More
