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

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

We needed a short get-away that was not too-far from Oakland. After settling on Pacific Grove, we perusing many sites and found the Martine Inn. What a lovely place - it's a lovely victorian B & B directly across the street from Monterey Bay, with lovely rooms and the most scenic, romantic delicious breakfast ever!

We are trying to create the experience of staying with a very wealthy family between 1880 and 1920. Marble sinks were frequently outside the bathroom to allow someone to shave and another to use the bathroom without interfering with each other. Thanks for your comments. More

Remember that book and movie? Staying there made me think of this-but in a positive way. Service was superb, food was great. The chocolate covered strawberries for Valentines Day was a very nice gesture.

It takes more than 10 employees to create the experience you received. Some humor is always fun. More

Great hotel in a great location that is just a few minutes walking distance away from the Aquarium. Nice to be able to get and take a walk on the coast before breakfast. The staff is excellent and informative.
