We apologize for the inconvenience . We are running full each day and it takes time to clean the rooms and get them ready . If we had any room ready we would not let our guest go . More

Water had a very, very bad, unusual taste. Both my dogs got diarrhea the day after drinking it (they did not have this the day before). When I alerted the front desk about the water, they said "The tap water is not for drinking"! They told us to buy bottled water for the hotel and only to shower in it.... More

We stayed in the Arbor Inn for 2 nights on our family trip to California. The motel is located just outside Monterrey centre, with easy access to the city and the surroundings. Well located if you’re looking to drive and get to know the area Monterrey – Pebble Beach – Carmel. It’s a nice and comfortable motel. It was fully... More

This little hotel is very charming-looking and inviting. Our room was a decent size, although it could have used a few more updates as it was a bit dark. The bathroom looked like it had recently been renovated, however. The room was clean and comfortable, and included a small fridge and microwave. They offered a complimentary breakfast and the food...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Arbor Inn! The staff was knowledgeable and friendly, the room was clean and very well maintained, and breakfast was offered every morning. We couldn't have asked for a better location too because we were only a few minutes from Cannery Row and the downtown area. We will definitely be returning in the near... More

We loved the Arbor Inn. Only a few minutes from downtown and cannery row. Super clean. Also near a mall with rite aid, whole foods and restaurants great for take out. We found it by chance after rejecting a very seedy place on N. Fremont called the Candle Bay Inn. That whole neighborhood was really sketchy. But the Arbor Inn... More

Arbor Inn at Monterey is a great place to stay--nothing fancy, but clean, quiet, and pretty. Walking distance to shops, bars and restaurants. The Presidio of Monterey within 10 minutes by car. No pool; I had trouble with wifi, but my daughter didn't. Super curb appeal. I would definitely stay here again.

Drove 14 hours to get to the Arbor Inn. Called them to see if we could cancel, they said no and said if we canceled we would be charged. I was within my 24 hour notice to cancel which they conveniently switched to 48. My confirmation said 24 hours. Drove all the way there on the 4th of July weekend.... More

Rooms are spacious and the hotel conveniently located to a Mall if needed. Easy to find on the main road into Monterey. Staff are friendly and a continental breakfast is available. Parking is free. Hotel is a two story and has an elevator for the breakfast are if one is needed. WiFi worked well. Would use this hotel again.
