I've stayed at the Old Monterey Inn many times in the past 4 or 5 years, but this is my first trip in the winter. I thought the rain would dampen the experience a bit, but it has only served to highlight the charm of this incredible B&B. My favorite room is Brighstone - although the Cottage Garden suite is...

I will keep this very short but we were unhappy with this Bed and Breakfast and find it strange how different our views were versus other reviews. If you dig into some past reviews you will find some similar to ours. We booked two nights here and ended up only staying one night. It was so dusty and musty smelling... More

We strive to make every guest’s experience at the Old Monterey Inn a very enjoyable memory, so we are always disappointed to hear otherwise. We do remember this guest, she and her husband stayed with us on October 14 during their travels through Northern California; and had just arrived from Napa. They stayed in one of our most popular suites... More

I needed to get away and I needed to relax and this was the best decision I made for me: to stay here for a couple of days the weekend after Christmas to just get away. I was greeted with WINE and hors' devours (cheese crackers marinated olives strawberries blackberries nuts and two marmalade/relishes) and a super friendly checkin girl.... More

This is a charming little place. My husband and I stayed for our anniversary. It was our first B&B experience, and it was really nice. Really loved the Victorian style house and garden, and the tub in the bedroom was really nice. There are some shortcomings by it not being a modern place: bad shower pressure, there is no AC...

We stayed in the Ashford suite for three nights, over the Christmas weekend. We loved our room, which had a beautiful and comfortable king sized bed with soft, luxurious sheets. Our anteroom had a fireplace and daybed, where we enjoyed a delicious breakfast each morning. The inn's grounds are well kept and lovely, with a large garden to enjoy. Each... More

My girlfriend and I stayed for a night just to get a way and it was amazing. This was my first bed and breakfast and when I go back to Monterey I will definitely be staying here again. It's tucked away in beautiful shrubbery and trees that reminded me of a cottage in a forest, almost like entering a Shire... More

We’re honored to be your first bed and breakfast, and lucky you, you both got to see the Inn decorated for Christmas too! We are happy to have set the bar high. We want you to feel at home but on vacation; at the same time without being “pestered” but knowing we are here if you need anything. Thank you... More

My husband and I stayed two nights in early December. Relaxing, quiet, beautiful grounds, cozy, comfortable room with a fireplace and king bed, which was more than comfortable!! The service was fantastic as well as the breakfasts and wine hour. Wendy, Laura and Aston were the best hostesses!!!!

The breakfasts were excellent! Would hope to be able to experience the Old Monterey Inn at least once a year; more would be better. Excellent treatment by the staff. Real pleasure to have been there for four nights!

This beautiful inn is a wonder. You will feel pampered, relaxed and recharged. Treat yourself to the best spot in Monterey. We have stayed many times and we can't get enough - - it's an enormous ivy-covered mansion with comfortable, spacious rooms and spectacular, sprawling, manicured grounds. You can't do any better.
