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 was exceptional and the young woman who greeted us upon our arrival was so helpful and friendly. We came in a bit late and decided to... More

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.

In fairness, we purchased a Living Social certificate for this establishment, so we were traveling on a great rate. The problem is that we kind of got what we paid for: a small room (Carriage Room) in the back with no view and an uncomfortable bed. The breakfast we had was fair. Fresh fruit was nicely prepared, but the egg... More

Thank you for your review of the Martine Inn. I am disappointed that we did not meet your expectations. I checked on your complaint and can not understand the problem. The pillow top Serta Mattress is only 3 years old and seems in perfect shape. More

We particularly enjoy Thanksgiving and Christmas Holidays. The aroma of the turkey roasting in the oven and the decorations and a Christmas Tree in every room create a feeling of home and family. We like being a part of your family. Thank you for joining with the Martine Inn family. More
