My husband and I stayed at this charming inn to celebrate our 35th anniversary. We are so glad we did as it is a perfect spot! We stayed in the Library which was cozy and filled with books both from generations of owners and past guests. The small bookcase filled with old National Geographics made me smile and took me...

Rooms were pleasant. The grounds were like and English garden with plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the view and a nice glass of wine. Wendy was an outstanding hostess. Overall just a very enjoyable place to rest and relax with easy access to all connecting roads to the entire Monterey Peninsula.

The only change is no more wood burning fireplaces. Otherwise, still the wonderful experience it has always been. Wendy made us so welcome. Our son and his wife joined us this time - a wondrous time. Thank you.

We have stayed at many B&B's and we cannot emphasize enough how much we love The Old Monterey Inn! This is our absolute FAVORITE Inn for many reasons. The rooms are so charming and the grounds are lush and green. The breakfast and wine hour are yummy. We feel like we are staying in a quaint old castle in England...

This inn showed signs of its former past in its unique rooms and some of its furnishings, but it seems just old and a bit tired. Our room (The Library) was bright and sunny but the bed was lumpy and the bathroom was a throwback to the 80's! Specifically, the bathroom had tile and a valance over the tub/shower, something...

There comes a point when an establishment needs a breath of fresh air and ideas, but appears this old inn has been taken over by owners that still want to ride the wave of past reviews. To start I must point out that every establishment starts with five stars as they can all achieve this and it's then from their...

We've stayed at the OMI for many years. With the recent change of ownership we did notice a few issues which have caused (In my opinion) for them to loose 1 star. No longer do they offer juice, water, soda's in the common refrigerator. Morning newspaper is no longer available in the living room. The pillow mattress was lumpy and...

We decided to return again to Monterey and stay at his lovely Bed and Breakfast. We stayed in Stoneleigh which is on the ground floor separate from the main house. It was quiet and private with the only noise was when a car pulled into the parking. The breakfast is always a fruit dish and an baked egg dish with...
