This was a great place to stay. Our room, California, overlooked the gardens. Wine and appetizers in the evening, breakfast was fabulous, and a going away treat at the end of our stay was very nice. It is just minutes walk away from the aquarium and parking is free if staying at the inn. People were happy to please. We... More

Room was very comfortable and filled with Victorian style antiques. Stayed in Mahogany room. Had working fireplace that only required one match to start. Very nice to take chill off of the cool night air and also romantic. Wine and appetizers offered every evening in dining room overlooking the ocean. Made for conversation with other guests. Breakfast was outstanding and... More

This was my second time staying at the Martine Inn. Our first experience was very nice but the second time left much to be desired. I will illustrate how we feel our stay could be better with a couple of examples. We arrived early in the afternoon and our room was not ready, which is totally fine. We asked if... More

We are so glad to have you as a returning guest. Our check in time is 3:00 pm and if you arrive before that time your room will not be ready. We vacuum our hallways and common areas last and do not want the noise and activity to inconvenience you in any way. We have stored guests personal belongings for... More

We had such a great time last year... we just had to return for another anniversary celebration! We were not disappointed. Once again, we were able to book an excellent deal thru TravelZoo. Hopefully, this will be an annual offering! The place is located right across the street from the ocean; within walking distance of Monterey Bay Aquarium and the... More

We were taking advantage of a Travelzoo promotion; king room, bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. All this for what seemed a reasonable price for Pacific Grove, well under $200.00/night. Even in booking the package I couldn't help but wonder about its rating as the 6th worst out of 10. Or from their perspective, the 6th best in Pacific... More

This is a beautiful, century-old inn with unique charm and quality. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and enjoyed our two nights there very much. We have three young children and found the family suite to be perfect. The suite is detached from the main inn, which was great for our family. The breakfasts were delicious, and the ocean view...

An ideal place to escape the pressures of modern life. Our room with both a fireplace and ocean view made it hard to leave, add a glass of wine, it was almost impossible.

Our adult children found this little gem. We had the walnut room, queen bed, adequate bathroom, quite delightful other than a lack of a TV. I appreciate that some people find TVs uncouth but I need one to fall asleep to. Outside through French doors was a courtyard and fountain , Really lovely. There is a TV in the lounge... More

My stay here was great. I was upgraded to a fireplace room on arrival. The room was huge! The bed was very comfortable and the shower worked very well. Nice amenities.

Thank you for your review of the Martine Inn. We are indeed fortunate in our fantastic location.

Still our favorite place to stay in Pacific Grove. Amazing views, great beds, wonderful breakfasts and very friendly, helpful innkeepers and staff. We had a "real" fireplace in our room which made the room so warm and cozy on a chilly February night. Be sure to ask Don about the history of the inn and its original owners. It's a... More
