Very nice Bed and Breakfast. It had a good location to start out on the 17 mile drive along the picturesque California coast line. The view from our room was looking directly at the ocean. Most rooms had fireplaces, comfortable beds, and claw foot bath tubs. Privacy was a little questionable. Delicious breakfast each morning plus wine and appetizers every... More

My best coastal experience yet! The Property is located right on Ocean View, nothing between you and the crashing waves but a small strip of pavement. The coastal walking and bike trail are just steps away. (Bring your bikes...he has a place to store them.) We were greeted by Grady. He checked us in and gave us a tour of... More

Lovely room with antiques and a partial ocean view. Very nice bedding and a claw foot bath tub. We did have one flight of outdoor stairs to reach our room but it was very private and extremely quiet. Delicious gourmet breakfast each morning plus wine and appetizers every evening. Coffee, tea and delicious homemade cookies waiting on the hall buffet... More

My husband and I have been to Monterey many times, and we have yet to find a hotel that we like there. We'd really hoped that the Martine Inn would be the one. Sadly, it was not. We have reasonably high expectations for a hotel of this price (we paid $489/night + tax), but as my other ratings indicate, we... More

The Martine Inn has a lot going for it, nice location near the center of Monterey and amazing views on the Pacific Ocean. It probably used to be a nice place to spend a couple of nights as attested by the many awards it won in the 80s and 90s. Alas, not anymore. The rooms were last refurbished at a... More

This was a family of 2 adults and a young daughter and son. The parents allowed the children to run unsupervised through out the inn. The mother was in another building in the parlor 100 feet away from the daughter when the daughter proceeded to yell and scream and pound on their room door for over 5 minutes. I went... More

We had a great stay at the Martine Inn last weekend. The staff was friendly and very helpful, the room was comfortable, the provided breakfast and afternoon wine and snacks were great. There is an exceptional view of the Bay from the dining room window. The Inn is within walking distance to the Aquarium and Cannery Row. All in all... More

We booked the Martine as a change from hotels which can all look the same. The Martine has an old fashioned charm, lots of nice touches such as wine & canapes at 6pm, served cooked breakfast, free cookies, coffee & fruit. There was a full size pool table and 2 pianos which my children enjoyed and free wifi. The location... More

Used this inn as a jumping off place for whale watching. Super location - walkable to the Monterrey Aquarium. Rooms are old fashioned (ours had the sink in the room), with antique furniture but very comfortable. Good evening cocktails with appetizers. Beautiful breakfast also comes with your stay.

The views from this bed and breakfast are amazing and the location is perfect. It is located directly across from the Monterey Bay and within walking distance of the Aquarium, Lover's Point, and Cannery Row etc. The full breakfast was always good and the staff was very helpful. The decor was a bit too Victorian for our taste, but we... More
