“Nice hotel with a good location”
Reviewed June 3, 2013

A great place to stay if you enjoy walking. The hotel is short walk to Cannery Row, the aquarium, and generally anywhere you'd want to go in Monterey. It's a bit further from the pier, but still walkable. The staff is friendly and the rooms are nice. The property feels like a retirement apartment complex. My girlfriend is in her late 20's and I'm in my early 30's, and it felt like we were the youngest there by thirty years during the generous wine reception, but that's not necessarily a negative because the place was very quiet at night, but if you're looking to party, you should probably go somewhere else (actually you probably just want to continue north to Santa Cruz). The Victorian aspect of the place is mildly comical as it looks like they just made a run to a discount antique store to make the reception hall feel old, but it does add a bit of kitch. Overall, this is a nice place to stay while in Monterey, it's a good home base for exploring. Also keep in mind that parking is not included.

We have stayed at the Victorian Inn on four occasions. Every time we have had a great stay. They always go out of the way to make us and our pet feel welcomed. It is a close walk to Cannery Row and is far enough away for some piece and quiet. I would highly recommend staying at this BWI. Each room we were housed had a hardwood floors, flat screen t.v. and fireplace. It is a place to stay for family, couples or just passing through and needing a good night's sleep.

Nice hotel with beautiful room and friendly staff. The breakfast was way beyond average offering. I'm ready to come back and stay again. Close to Cannery Row. Enjoyed my room and property was quiet. Bed and linens were comfortable.

My husband and I have stayed at the Victoriam Inn numerous times over the past several yrs and have reserved another stay this fall. Accommodations and staff are always delightful. Love the breakfast and early evening wine reception. Last visit, we were presented with a personal note and bottle of wine in our room welcoming us as return visitors. We have traveled extensively in and outside of the US and the Victorian Inn in Monterey is a favorite of ours. Location is perfect!

My little Maltese and I had a wonderful 3 night stay recently in Monterey at the Victorian Inn. The staff is exceptional! The location is central and walkable to all activities. The fireplace on cool nights could not be beat!

Noise carries from other rooms and the stairs outside, but small issue...all considered. :)

Victorian Inn is in a good place between MBA & Fisherman's Wharf - love to eat at the wharf. There is a CVS & a gas station 2 blocks away. Breakfast has a lot of options, staff are friendly & helpful.

We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the rooms at the Victorian Inn. Don't be put off by the Best Western brand - this is a good quality hotel with spacious and recently renovated rooms. The bathrooms are a little bit old, but otherwise it's all very nice. The location is close to Cannery Row and quiet. Staff of the hotel were very helpful and polite. Breakfast was a bonus and quite good with a reasonable choice (although the usual lousy American coffee!).
