Nice welcome with free wifi.

First impressions aren't terribly promising with a walk to the accommodation block down a 1970s carpeted corridor. You expect Huggy Bear to leap out from behind the armoir in the hallway. Apparently we had an upgrade. Our room was comfortable with period look furniture and fireplace. TV reception was a little poor but this wasn't too important.


5 minute walk from Cannery Rown.

I'd recommend going to the Intercontinental Bar by the sea.

Monterey is very over rated in my view but this hotel was reasonable value.

Street parking is available overnight.

Room Tip: Ask for an upgrade (?)

Thank you for your honest feedback. We are extremely pleased to hear that your initial impressions were changed throughout your stay and are happy to report that we will begin updating room corridors this fall. We will also begin renovations to our guest bathrooms, front desk, and breakfast parlor as well. In 2013, we did purchase all new furniture, art work, patio furniture, and flat screen televisions for our guest’s room, as we are continually investing in our properties. We look forward to welcoming you back soon and hope you will be pleased with the changes.

Sincerely,
Management of the Inns of Monterey

The Best Western Victorian Inn is in a great location that allows an easy walk to many of the shops and restaurants on Cannery Row. My room was comfortable and charming and included a fireplace, which may come in handy in Winter. The bathrooms are in need of a update by most comparisons of equally priced hotels. The afternoon wine and cheese is a very nice touch.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the second floor so you won't hear footsteps from above.

We are very appreciative of your feedback and are happy to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed not only our hotel, but also our close proximity to Cannery Row shops and restaurants. However, we were disappointed that our bathrooms did not live up to your expectations and are excited to share that this fall we will be beginning guest bathroom renovations. Currently we are in the process of creating two model bathrooms which will serve as a template for the continuation of the renovation. We hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back and hope that you will be pleased with these changes.

Management of the Inns of Monterey

This hotel is located just one block off Cannery Row, convenient to the Aquarium, Cannery Row shops and restaurants, and surrey bike rentals.

While the decor (interior and exterior) is seriously dated, the hotel is clean, the staff is incredibly and helpful. The lobby has a computer where you can print tickets to attractions for free, which is a nice perk.

Wifi was also included in the room rate.

Parking is an additional $15/night, but the garage is just below ground level, covered, with ample spots, and monitored enough by the always-busy housekeeping staff whose hub is located in the same area.

We requested a room with a patio, and got a courtyard view on the ground level. The rooms are large and spacious, the beds are very comfortable, and there is a fireplace in the room! What a nice perk.

We enjoyed the hot breakfast, included with the room rate, and the ability to take to the food back to our room. The breakfast included eggs, sausage, fruit, cereal, toast, juices, milk and coffee.

We only stayed one night in the middle of a summer week, and, while we noticed other travelers, the rooms were relatively quiet. We could hear the guests in the room above us throughout the evening in what seemed to be a stomping activity, but eventually they quieted down, too. We never complained to the management, but I am sure they would've been helpful if we'd needed to.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony or patio!

Beautiful accommodations, great staff, great breakfast, afternoon wine and cheese. Only downside was expensive daily parking. Centrally located, staff was eager to please, gave great suggestions for side trips and went out of their way to make our vacation enjoyable.

We stayed 3 nights over a weekend. Nice hotel, great location, excellent parking situation, polite & professional staff, great breakfast. Only issue was high price due to event that weekend but I knew that when I made my reservation.

we always stay at the Victorian Inn for our annual Monterey trip--the staff is professional, the property is well maintained...it is situated one block off Cannery Row and close to everything...the surrounding area is comfortable and the Antique Mall is a two minute walk.
