This place is a little gem. Wonderful location within walking distance of downtown and Fisherman's Wharf. Coffee, snacks and an excellent assortment of teas available in the office all day, in addition to breakfast items each morning. Rooms equipped with refrigerator and microwave. Exceptionally clean. I'll definitely stay here again next time I'm in Monterey.

Room Tip: All rooms are quiet, and all have a small balcony overlooking a green area in the rear. A communal...

Historic Monterey is a relatively small town, one can get virtually everywhere on foot. The hotel is just a few steps away from Colton Hall, Monterey Library, banks, Monterey Institute and in about 15-minutes' walk from Fisherman's Wharf. It would take one about 40 minutes to walk to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, but it is a nice walk along the coast filled with seals relaxing in the sunshine, pelicans and other fauna.

The hotel itself is relatively new or has been recently renovated, very clean. The evening reception guy was very nice and courteous. The breakfast that they serve includes not only pastry, but also bagels and oats and corn flakes and fruit (you can also take fruit with you) - quite enough not to feel hungry in two hours. They even put out snacks (mainly cookies) to be enjoyed in the evening.

Wireless internet worked just fine and parking is ample and free of charge, too.

One could hear doors being slammed early in the morning, but I guess this is something that can't be helped no matter where.

If all the hotels I have stayed at during my trips were like Colton Inn, I couldn't be happier!

This inn may be older but in very well kept condition. The rooms are large and very nicely kept. Very friendly and helpful staff. Located on a beautiful creek with deck and common area with tables and chairs

Nice, clean accommodation, good sized room to relax in after taking in all the sights of the day. Lots of choice for breakfast, wonderful to be able to enjoy it outside on the patio.

An easy fairly level walk to the Monterey seafront and Cannery Row

We are a family of 5 from New Zealand and got 2 adjoining rooms. Worked really well. We were well received at the front desk and were pleased with the rooms which were nice, clean and relaxing. A short stroll to Fishermans Wharf and shops gives many dining options. Safe area. Breakfast in lobby to take back to rooms or sit in courtyard was much appreciated. We wished that we had stayed longer.
