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... More

A very beautiful old house, but a bad experience due the new owners. This place has been taken over recently by a chinese owner, who obviously is only focused on business, business, business. Unfriendly service, breakfast for everybody at 9.00 h, simple and not very tasty, you are disturbed in your room... What a pity for what certainly has been... More

My husband and I recently stayed at the Old Monterey Inn while celebrating our Anniversary. We loved the Inn and the staff who were very kind and accommodating. The breakfast each morning was exceptional and is offered as a group experience or a private one. The property and Inn are quite romantic and conveniently located to many nearby attractions. We...

Our 'experience' didn't get off to the best start but soon improved. We arrived at the front door just after another couple and when they were greeted and taken to see something in their room we were asked to take a seat in the lounge area (that was really nice) for a few minutes whilst they sorted out the other...

After my fiance proposed to me earlier that day, we went to Old Montrey Inn and were blessed soul. The picturesque house, surrounded by the lush garden, exceeded all my expectations of a B & B. The staff who received us was incredibly welcoming and helpful. In the suite we stayed in was a bathtub in the room next to... More

This lovely old house is set in beautiful gardens and is ideally located for Fishermans Wharf (we walked there and back) and a short drive to Cannery Row or out to Carmel. We loved our room which was on the top floor but we were helped up the stairs with our luggage. Breakfast was a treat. Staying as we did... More

Tudor architecture, half-timbered, vine covered - what more could you ask for? And a garden as well, all plopped down in the middle of residential Monterey. This was the former mansion of the town's mayor, and has been lovingly taken care of. When we arrived, our gracious host Wendy offered us a larger room (the Library) than we had booked,... More

We had the pleasure of staying at Old Monterey Inn for 3 nights last week. In the past we’ve always stayed in a hotel at Carmel-by-the-Sea when visiting the area. We didn’t miss staying in Carmel one bit since the Inn is so close to the town of Carmel as well as being conveniently located and close to the heart... More

This historic house is situated in a nice residential area about a mile from the wharf. Built for Monterey's first mayor, the house is beautifully furnished with antiques yet retains a cozy, homey, relaxing atmosphere. The gardens are extensive and glorious, perfect for taking in the wonderful California sunshine. We especially enjoyed the afternoon happy hour, where the proprietor offered... More

The Old Monterey inn is definately a hidden treasure we stumbled upon and stayed last week for 3 days. I booked the Garden Cottage last 2 times we stayed because it is not in the main house and is amazing but was not available so they suggested Stoneleigh. When checking in we noticed the inn was under new ownership but... More
