My husband and I stayed at the Old Monterey Inn for one night in late October. Though we arrived a little too early for check-in since my husband had a tee time at noon at the Links at Spanish Bay, it did not pose a problem. Katy welcomed us warmly, gave us a tour of the house and showed us two rooms to choose from. We fell in love with the Stoneleigh with its pastel motif, king size bed and beautiful linens. The fireplace and the sitting area added to the coziness of the room. The bathroom had Aveda toiletries and the closet had bathrobes and slippers for the guests to use. Katy mentioned she is in the process of redecorating the different rooms and has just completed the Stoneleigh. When she found out we were in Monterey to celebrate my husband’s birthday, she gave us a discount on the room rate and offered to make our dinner reservations that night at Roy’s in Pebble Beach where another wonderful surprise awaited us thanks to Katy.
One of the highlights of our stay was the breakfast which we opted to have in our room. A basket with a pot of coffee and a jar of biscotti was left on our doorstep at 7:30. By 9:00 AM, Katy and her assistant personally delivered our breakfast and set everything up in the sitting area. We were served cheese blintzes topped with an assortment of fresh fruits (absolutely heavenly), freshly squeezed orange juice with banana slices and a new pot of coffee and tea. It was the best breakfast ever!!! If we had the opportunity and our schedule allowed it, we would have stayed another night of pampering and five star treatment.
The Old Monterey Inn boasts old world charm and elegance. The living room exuded comfort and relaxation. The dining room was exquisitely decorated. The garden was beautifully landscaped. Above all, the attention to detail was impressive and the service top-notch.
Katy, thanks for making our stay very memorable. We can’t wait to visit again.
