Reviewed January 24, 2013

Just spent three delightful days in Monterey California. It was our good fortune to stay at the Victorian Inn.

We arrived just in time for the nightly wine and cheese reception. What a treat. A casual time to get acquainted with others who were visiting the area and find out what places were good to visit.

We parked in the free underground parking garage. It was a short trip via elevator from the garage to our room.

Our room was very spacious. Nice fireplace and spa tub. We even had a balcony with a partial view of Monterey Bay.

The Inn is within a short walking distance to Cannery Row and the Fisherman's Wharf. Easy access to attractions and restaurants.

The Inn provided a full breakfast every morning until 9:30 a.m. Very casual self service with plenty of variety to please everyone.

All of the staff were polite and helpful.

This is a great place to stay.

The Victorian Inn was centrally located for us. We were able to walk to Cannery Row, the Aquarium, and also down to the Wharf. We also drove to Carmel and Santa Cruz. Having breakfast provided saves alot of time and also trying to look for a place to eat. The wine and cheese hour was especially good. The fireplace was well used since it was cold the time we stayed and our room was spacious. We will definitely come back again.

We stayed early January in the 1 bedroom suite so we had a kitchen and 2 of the lovely fires which add a great atmosphere. The hotel has easy parking and is a short walk to all that Monterey has to offer. The staff are friendly and the breakfast was really generous and fresh, with the ladies bustling about making sure everyone was happy. It can get crowded, but you are encouraged to take a tray full of food back to your room if there is nowhere to sit. We really felt at home here after our stays in the big hotels of Vegas and SanFrancisco.

We are very proud of our hotel; in its rooms and amenities, but more so of its people.

We stayed at the Best Western Plus Victorian Inn last summer during our vacation to northern California. We reserved our stay through Costco. The hotel is very well located, only a few blocks from Monterey Bay, the aquarium, and many shops and restaurants. The room was adequate. It's dimensions were good, but the decor was a little dated. Also, we had a room on the first floor, which had a little outdoor patio. It was a somewhat noisy, though not overwhelmingly so, because numerous guests walked past quite close to the room. The included breakfast was just OK, though the afternoon wine tasting was very nice. The restaurant suggestions were quite good, too. All in all, I would recommend staying here if you can get a good deal on the rate.

Hello dag1963,

Thank you very much for staying with us, and for your very thoughtful review.
For the past two years we’ve been embarking a series of very exciting update and upgrades to the hotel. We have already replaced the mattress sets, light fixtures in the rooms, patio furniture, bathroom mirrors, and guestroom desk chairs, and installed 42”, flat-screen televisions above the fireplaces. Currently, we are in the midst of upgrading our guestroom night stands, headboards, lounge chairs, coffee tables, dressers, drapes, and décor – and in the process, repainting and giving an overall refresh to the rooms. We are all very excited for these improvements, and we hope you can make it back this year so that you can experience all of our upgrades for yourself!

Thank you, again,
the General Manager

Husband found this hotel online. Two blocks to Cannery Row and he was able to call in and get a good price. $103 for Sunday night before tax. There is a $14 charge for parking. The place was WONDERFUL. Husband shared with person on the phone that this was our belated anniversary trip. Staff left a bottle of wine and chocolates for us. The room was actually in the Victorian house (only 2 are). Room was beautiful. Victorian decore. They serve wine, cheese and fruit for an hour during the early evening. Breakfast in the morning includes eggs, french toast, sausage, cereal, bread, etc. Great deal. Staff was very helpful with all our requests. This is a gem of a hotel and we will be back.

This pleasant hotel is a short (though fairly steep) walk from Cannery Row and the waterfront. Our room was pleasant, staff were friendly and breakfast was good.

There was a wine and cheese reception for guests each afternoon when we enjoyed talking to some of the other guests staying in the hotel.

Stayed in the Deluxe King room, the room was clean and the fireplace was romantic. The staff was friendly and the complimentary breakfast was really good for being complimentary. I forgot a few things (toothbrush, toothpaste etc.) and they had them delivered to my room. I was able to check in early when we arrived in Monterey because our room was ready and loved the late checkout, made the trip more relaxing.
