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.
