“Great Location - Close to Everything”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

A fine place to stay that is close to Cannery Row (easy walk), Pebble Beach and Carmel. Easy to drive into and get out of. Check in was efficient and all staff is very nice. Room was clean and bed comfortable. Free wireless but slow. The charge is $4.95 per day for Premium Internet speed which is faster than the free Internet which has a speed of 1 MB. After wine and cheese is a nice touch and free everyday from 4:30pm to 5:30pm. The was Ventana Syrah and Ventana Chardonnay. Smoked cheese, crackers, and apple slides available as well. Complimentary breakfast include hot items such as scrambled eggs, sausage links and french toast. There were some pasteries, toast, fruit, oatmeal, orange juice and apple juice. I did not like the $13 per day parking fee. There is a hot tub, but no pool. Nor is there a fitness center. If you are looking for a clean room with some nice amenities and a decent AAA rate, stay here. We had no issues.

Room Tip: Our room was second floor facing the street. This can be a little loud but was quiet in the evening...

Rooms were great size & was great having a fireplace.
Bit bemused why the charge parking since it's under the building not outsourcing it at all.
Breakfast was great, afternoon reception was okay (by no means great wine or cheese).
Location is good but if you dont want to pay the price for bay views and the place has character.

Room Tip: book a place with a fireplace

Came in June with another couple- great location, close to Cannery Row- we walked to restaurants and shops! Had a nice complimentary breakfast, serve yourself selection! The staff was great and we really enjoyed the early evening reception with complimentary wine, beverages, fruit, cheese and crackers. It was nice to talk and get to know some of the other guests from different places- Stayed 3 nights-time went by so fast-will definitely come back again!

Have stayed here multiple times for business. Welcoming, able and friendly staff. Comfortable rooms, clean and well kept. Only downside is no microwave for heating restaurant left-overs in-room (there is a small frig for storage). The staff were very accommodating and let us use the breakfast kitchen microwave. The recently upgrade to flat screen TVs is very nice (former TV space would be a great place for a microwave). Love the in-room fireplace (though the lighting is a bit tricky).

Room Tip: Third floor with vaulted ceilings have very nice rooms, but cold in the winter as there are no ceili...

Stayed here for two nights as part of our Californian tour, and we were very pleased with our choice! It is in a great position in Monterey, being just two blocks and a five minute walk from Cannery Row, and a fifteen minute walk to Fishermans Wharf down a pedestrian/cycle only pathway.
The staff here are extremely friendly and helpful especially on reception- we had let them know that it was our wedding anniversary whilst we were there and both staff on duty when we arrived congratulated us as soon as they heard our name, before they'd even checked their records - we were most impressed, and even more so when they sent a complimentary bottle of wine plus chocolates to our room!!
The room was large with a King bed which was extremely comfortable, and a good sized bathroom plus an extra sink area within the bedroom- strange but useful!! Everything was clean and the furniture in good condition and it was in keeping with the Victorian feel of the hotel and we had no complaints! There was also a balcony with table and chairs which overlooked the inner courtyard, but also the walkways around the rooms, so whilst being a welcome addition it certainly wasn't private. Our room was adjacent to an outside door to other rooms and we thought that we would hear a lot of noise, but this wasn't the case and it was very quiet day and night!
Continental breakfast was included in the price which was more than adequate, and there was a cheese and wine hour every afternoon which was a great chance to meet other guests. There is a large garage underneath the hotel, but it does cost $13 per night , one of my major hotel complaints, you pay enough for the room so it should be included.
So all in all very pleased with our stay and yes we would stay there again if in the area, which is always the best test of any hotel!

Room Tip: We had room 205 on second floor which was fine, but have read that unadvertised third floor rooms at...

The Best Western Victorian is a wonderful place to stay when in the Monterey area. The rooms are very clean, the staff is always willing to take care of your every need.
The location is great. Very close to Cannery Row, The Aquarium & Fisherman's Warf. All with in walking distance.
We have stayed there many times, and will again.
The Victorian Gets "Two Thumbs Up" from me.

Room Tip: I like the top floor but each person is different!!!
