“Great location, average rooms”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

We stayed here during the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am when rooms were very hard to find, and was pleased to find this Inn with such a good location and reasonable rates. The rooms do feel a bit like a motel, but ours opened out the back onto a very nice patio that had character. The breakfast room was small but it was a good option for a quick bite before heading out to the course. We weren't at the Inn much, but loved the location and it was very functional.

On the website, the Inn looks like an attractive old building - however, most of the rooms are actually in an ugly motel-style block. We has been looking forward to arriving at a place with some character, so we felt disappointed and cheated. The room we were in had very little natural light, which was depressing and not good for the environment as you have to keep the lights on. We had to pay extra for the parking, though we were allowed to leave the car there after we had checked out. The breakfast was adequate but the service was surly - I asked if I could take a cup of tea to my room and was told I would have to use a paper cup, not the cup I was already using. On the plus side, the people at the front desk were quite helpful, the room size and decor are good and the location is convenient.

Great location near Fisherman's Wharf, downtown Monterey and Cannery Row. We had room #10 (safari themed room) and loved it. Super comfortable bed, French doors opening onto a small balcony overlooking a garden area. Breakfast was perfect for us - bagels, cream cheese, hot cereal, hard boiled eggs, yogurt, selection of fruits, orange juice, fresh pastries, tea and delicious coffee with fresh milk (no powdered junk). The tables were set with mis-matched Fiesta Ware - bright and inviting. We were in town for a jazz festival that our son's university was performing at. We met several other travelers at breakfast who were also attending the festival and traded restaurant tips, etc for the area. Our room was well stocked and very clean. The staff were helpful and pleasant. Parking is available for $15.00 per day and definitely worth it. We're planning on coming back soon to explore more of this great area!

Pros: great location, great front door service, nice breakfast, free parking, and the history behind it.

Cons: paper-thin walls, TV not working, and for some reason, the layout of the Inn portion makes me think that I stayed in a motel, instead of a B&B.

Coming upon this inn after a long day was like hitting an oasis. This is a B&B located within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf and is quiet. The room was spacious with a fireplace and a log and matches for your convenience. The breakfast room was charming with hot cereal, croissants and hard-boiled eggs as well as the usual muffins, danish, toast included.
At $110 a night this was terrific value in a very touristed place in a central location. Family owned. Enjoy.

We stayed one night so that we could head over to the aquarium and then spend the night before going home. We arrived about 4 hours before checking, but the room was ready so we got our keys and went up. There was a nice big patio where we had lunch, and then walked over to the aquarium. We stayed in a suite, and it was very comfortable, with plenty of room for two adults and a child. Internet connection was free, service was friendly, and breakfast was great the next morning. I also liked the wooden Easter Island Moai that sat outside the room. We'll definitely stay here again.
