“Great overnight stop in Monterey”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

Great overnight stop in Monterey.  We stopped overnight with our two teenage boys.   We enjoyed our short stay, great breakfast, free wifi, free parking.  It's not a high end property but it was clean and comfortable - exactly what we needed for one night.  We picked the hotel because it was located close to the Cannery Row attractions.  

Stayed August 2013, traveled with family

The best place to stay when you go to the Monterey Bay Aquarium-we only have to walk a few short blocks to Cannery Row & the Aquarium. Also, they serve wine & cheese in the afternoon & a great breakfast in the morning. Even nicer is that we are always welcomed back and made to feel special.

This hotel is located a few blocks off of Fisherman's Wharf, but it is an easy 5-10 minute walk to most anywhere you'll be visiting, including the aquarium. The desk staff is very friendly and courteous, and the room is clean and comfortable. It is a bit awkward to reach some rooms from the lobby. The breakfast is more than adequate, with the usual selection of cold and hot items, pastries, yogurt, cereal, etc. Not exactly a bargain, but expected for this area.

Last Minute get-a-way to Monterey. Sister property recommended the Best Western Victorian. Very nice reception, Staff went above and beyond to make our arrival special. Quiet room with lovely fireplace. Very close walking distance to Cannery Row. Awesome overall experience.

Charming hotel located conveniently between Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf; 15 minutes walking time to either. Although a bit dated, it is clean and the bed and TV are up-to-date. Breakfast is included, but it is basic. Quiet residential location.

This hotel is really nothing special, but it is located just far enough away from cannery row (5-10 minute walk) that you don't feel like a tourist. Breakfast was included, but it wasnt great. We heard the people above us and pipes running when others were showering. The lady at the front desk was super sweet thought.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor, also make sure you carry your room key because you will not be able to get b...

I can't say enough good things about this hotel. The rooms were great - plenty of space, quiet, well-decorated, even a cushioned window seat, and a table with four chairs. It is located within a few bloacks of Cannery Row. Parking is on-site. The staff was very helpful and service-oriented. A hot breakfast is complimentary, and it was very good: omelets, sausage, and french toast as well as assorted pastries and cereal. Even an afternoon wine and cheese reception. Fisherman's Wharf was a short 5 minute drive. Highly recommended.
