Best Western Plus Victorian Inn
Ranked #7 of 56 Hotels in Monterey
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We were celebrating our 10th anniversary and the Victorian Inn staff prepared a big surprise for us. We had a great wine bottle waiting for us in the bedroom with a beautiful welcome message of the staff. This was a kind gesture that we appreciate a lot. The guest room is very comfortable and the cal king bed is amazing. The bathroom had a node appearance but it was clean. The breakfast is ok and the breakfast area is very cozy. The hotel is very well located and it is just 2 minutes walk from the Cannery Row. The guest parking lot is beneath the hotel and costs 13 USD per day.

Dear Marcelolapa,

Thank you for taking the time to review the Best Western PLUS Victorian Inn. I’m so glad our staff were able to help make your 10th anniversary a exceptional one with a bottle of local wine and a special note to toast your lasting relationship. We, too, love our guest rooms, and our California King rooms are a great way for couples to unwind during their stay in Monterey!

I’m also pleased to let you know that we’re in the process of upgrading our breakfast services, including remodeling our seating facilities in order to make our breakfasts even better. Be assured that comments like yours are being taken into account as we move forward with our renovations.

Thank you again for your comments! I look forward to welcoming you back to the Victorian Inn so that we might show you how dedicated we are to providing a wonderful Monterey Experience.

Sincerely,

The General Manager

We are three sisters in our 60s who decided to take a Pacific Coast Road Trip. We stayed at the BW Victorian because of the close proximity to the Monterey Bay Aquarium and other Cannery Row attractions. Michelle, who works at the Inn was so wonderful and welcomming to us and made our stay very special. We love the Inn and the people who worked there. The only complaint we had is that the suite we stayed in had no A/C and we just happened to be there in record heat. We had to keep our windows open for circulation and the road noise was pretty bad. We did our best to ignore that and all I can say is that everything else about our stay made up for that one inconvience. Beautiful place to stay!

Room Tip: Make sure your room has A/C, maybe the more modern rooms in the other part of the property have it.

The hotel is very nice. Big clean room, with a porch.
The location is excellent - just minutes to the center, where all the restaurants. 5 min. To the aquarium.
Breakfast is problematic - the dining room is small, and often there is no seating for guests, who is forced to wait. Very embarrassing to a hotel at such a level.

This hotel doesn't have the best first impression. From the outside it looks old and in need if fresh new paint.
But once we checked it things just changed. The customer service was amazing! We didn't even ask for an upgrade yet they offered us one. They have free breakfast, which was spartan in variety yet quite filling.

Our room was perfect... beautiful balcony overlooking the courtyard, and in the distance you can see the ocean. The king size bed was very comfortable, and the room was quiet (save for the neighbor in the downstairs room who threw her lover outside during the middle of the night). The portable fan in the closet would have come in handy if it was more visible) The bathroom was large and spacous. We even had a fireplace in our room!

When we checked out they allowed our car in the free parking lot, saving us money when we shopped at Canary Row. We only stayed for one night but we will definitely be back for more very soon!

My family was very happy with the location. The staff was wonderful and very helpful. The breakfast was also great, much more than I expected. I didn't give it 5 stars because it needs some updating/sprucing up. The bathtub drain had stuff coming up from it while taking a shower and the room we had to change to still seemed to have slow drainage. It was also very loud- upstairs noise and doors closing.

Liked the location of the hotel, very handy for Cannery Row and the start of 17 mile drive ( $9 to enter, but well worth it).
The hotel had some nice touches , free btl of wine in room and free wine tasting in the afternoon/evening. The room (220) itself was nice but found it very dull and needed all the lights on

Located just one block up and a few blocks down from Cannery Row, it is a great location. You can park and just walk to the Aquarium if you are able to walk about a mile. It really isn't bad but may be too far for young children or elderly. It is not on the water but there is a walking path that leads to the beach. The rooms are nice and most include a gas fireplace. The bed was comfortable and there was a nice flat screen. Get a second floor room if you can to alleviate noise from above. Also, each room has a balcony but the lower level rooms sort of share a balcony - you can walk right over to your neighbors room. The view consists of the street (blocked by bushes) or the courtyard (foilage and pedestrians). neither is a great view in my opinion. There is a CVS a few blocks down if you forget something. Staff are super friendly and the breakfast was fabulous. Typical continental until the omelet and sausage were served! No pool and hot tub not available when I was there. Not sure if it was a temporary closure or not.

Room Tip: Upper floor, courtyard view.
