Reviewed December 4, 2012 via mobile

Superb hotel that made you feel like you are staying in someone's home rather than a hotel. Had a premium room with twin basins, armchairs and a working fireplace!
Friendly staff, underground parking and close to Cannery row.
Breakfast was good but with limited seating.

I have always had nice experiences with Best Western Plus properties and the Victorian Inn didn't disappoint. There is below-ground parking with a $13 daily parking fee. The girl who checked us in was friendly, helpful and didn't seem bothered by my questions. Our room was on the 2nd floor, had a gas fireplace and a patio. The Victorian Inn is real close to Cannery Row (approx 5-10 minute walk) but far enough away to avoid the hustle & bustle of the tourists. This was very convenient because the parking structure by the aquarium is costly so it was nice to be able to walk.

Breakfast is served in the lobby area but the seating is extremely limited and you usually end up standing, or balancing your plate on your lap as you sit on the couch. Because our room was on the 2nd floor, it would have been difficult to bring breakfast back to the room.

Wine and cheese is served in the lobby from 4-5 pm but I didn't partake in this so, even though it is a nice touch, I can't review this.

There is a computer kiosk in the lobby as well where you can buy and print discounted tickets. We were able to buy our aquarium tickets this way, which allowed us to bypass the long line at the aquarium ticket window.

I would, without a doubt, stay at the Victorian Inn again!!

I had a room on the 3rd floor and it was great. It had cathedral ceiling, a gas fireplace and even a deck. The kingsize bed was extremely comfortable and seemed to have an endless supply of pillows, which is always a plus! I found even the breakfast enjoyable and never crowded. My only disappointment was with the $13 per day parking fee, as it was never mentioned ahead of time. Overall, I highly recommend this hotel if you are taking in Monterey.

We were in town for the Big Sur Half Marathon and the value of this hotel was insurmountable. We had a wonderful weekend! The location was close to the race route. We enjoyed being able to walk everywhere!

I've learned that in Monterey, when we find a great place, whether it be a restaurant or a hotel, we should stick with it every time we go back. We stayed at BW Victorian Inn few years ago and remember that it was really nice. Unfortunately, since then, we have stayed in way too many hotels with unacceptable standards in service and quality. We decided to return to the Victorian Inn, and it was as nice as I'd remembered, and the service level was impeccable. The room was spacious and well maintained, and the fire place was definitely a bonus, esp. great for a cooler night like the night we'd arrived. The location was absolutely perfect being that it was only a block away from Cannery Row, and although our room was facing the street, it was absolutely quiet. We'll definitely return to BW Victorian Inn whenever we're in Monterey.

Our family of 5 stayed here during our family vacation in California. There are not many hotels in Monterey that allow 5 to a room. Me were very happy with the hotel, the suite's layout and the location was great for walking anywhere in town. They also offer a breakfast that is satisfactory for most.
We would stay here again.

We booked this hotel because it seemd convenient to fisherman's warf, Cannery Row, The Aquarium and the 17 mile drive. We were not disappointed. The rooms were clean, the continental breakfast was fantastic and everything was within walking distance. We loved it. The 17 mile drive was spectacular. Do not miss it. This was a great start to our California vacation. P.S. - the staff were terrific. everyone was friendly and more than helpful.
