“Clean Homey Room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2013

Stayed in the Deluxe King room, the room was clean and the fireplace was romantic. The staff was friendly and the complimentary breakfast was really good for being complimentary. I forgot a few things (toothbrush, toothpaste etc.) and they had them delivered to my room. I was able to check in early when we arrived in Monterey because our room was ready and loved the late checkout, made the trip more relaxing.

Hello Keri O,

More than anything, thank you so much for taking the time to share your recent experience at the Victorian Inn. It is our mission to provide a welcoming, friendly environment to our guests, and I am thrilled to hear that our staff was able to provide such for you. We know that, while traveling, some things can slip a persons’ mind – so I am glad that the toothbrush and toothpaste we delivered was able to help.
I look forward to the opportunity to welcome you back! And the opportunity to earn that fifth star by really wowing you!

Thank you, again,
the General Manager

We have a big dog and had to find a new place to stay in Monterey that took dogs .This place is great and my dog loves it too. Excellent restaurants just around the corner and walk to beach and Cannery row . The staff is excellent . Also they have a nice fireplace and had a dog bowl with food and water . A nice reception area to hang out. Wine and cheese at nite and a jacuzzi outside for a nice soak in the morning.

Room Tip: Rooms upstairs have a great view on the street side

We stayed one night in January 2013. The hotel is very close to the Aquarium and to Cannery Row. The staff member at check in was very helpful. We found our family suite to be very spacious, clean and comfortable. There were a few little niggles at this property - given the space, queen sized beds would have been lovely. And the charming breakfast room gets a bit cramped. But the breakfast options were generous and the food was tasty.

The Victorian Inn is what I think of as an upscale motel atmosphere. Its cleanliness, efficiency, etc. is excellent. What makes it a bit different is the friendly, helpful attitude of its staff. They have a nice wine and cheese tasting every afternoon and now and then you meet someone there who is outgoing enough so that you can enjoy their company. The place is several blocks from the famous aquarium and cannery row and about 1/2 mile from fisherman's wharf. Bike and kayak rentals are not too far away. I highly recommend the whale watching trip from fisherman's wharf. Grey whale migration takes place in January/February and I'm looking forward to trying it for the second time next week.

Excellent location as within walking distance to the aquarium and downtown. No need for a car.
the staff is very friendly and goes to great length to help one. We have been staying here for over 10 years and always enjoy our . The fireplaces in the rooms are a nice touch for the winter rainy days.

Room Tip: Ask for a courtyard view

We frequently visit Monterey and have stayed at various places. This was definitely one of our favorites. It is close to walk everywhere. The hotel was quiet, the fireplace delightful. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Ask for top floor, floor above us had small children jumping from bed to floor at 7:00 a.m. We like...

The fine location on fairly quiet street half-way between Aquarium and Wharf (10 minute pleasant walk to wide variety of restaurants – ask desk clerk for recommendation that includes free appetizer) helped justify a room price of over $200 a night. The back room we specifically reserved was occupied, so a comparable room on the street was provided and the accommodating desk staff volunteered to move our luggage on 2nd day. The room was not as noisy as we feared, so we stayed there. This premier double room offered a high ceiling, plenty of room, lovely fireplace, bright lighting, 2 sinks, refrigerator, honor bar, huge flat screen TV, great sitting area in bay window with a table big enough for 2 laptops. Free slow Internet was offered with $4 upgrade for faster service. Despite TA reviews indicating we might not find seating at more than adequate breakfast, we had no problem.

The shower did need water pressure, a dresser with drawers that didn’t pull off when pulled out (as it was, dresser was non-functional), plus signage as the layout is odd thus finding one’s way, frustrating. I’d certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: Splurge for the large premier room with fireplace. 2nd floor even on Foam Street was quiet.

Hello DulciTraveler,

As I say to all of our guests who leave review – thank you. Thank you for staying with us, and thank you even more for taking the time to share your feedback.
I am happy to hear that, though the same room wasn’t available during your whole stay, both rooms you stayed in were comfortable, and left such a positive impression. Regarding your comments about the dresser, please know that we are in the process of replacing the dressers in all of our guest rooms. Many have already been upgraded, along with the other furniture and décor, and the remaining rooms will be completed by the first weeks of February.
We are all very proud of the changes, and I hope that you will join us again soon so that you can see and experience the upgrades for yourself.

Thank you, again,
the General Manager
