I'll try and keep this review as succinct as possible. =)

PROS:
- Excellent front desk staff (friendly, courteous, prompt, and polite).
- Excellent housekeeping staff (respectful, courteous, and responsive).
- Excellent location (A short walk to Cannery Row but far enough away to where it doesn't become a bother).
- Excellent view (a majority of the rooms can catch a glimpse of the ocean -- nothing spectacular but peaceful).
- Clean rooms (clean bathrooms too!)
- In room fireplaces (with appropriate lighting materials already there).
- Balconies/patios on all rooms.
- Comfortable beds (extra pillows already available).
- Safe/quiet neighborhood

NEUTRAL:
- Decent breakfast (Assortment of cereals, breads, fruits, and juices). I was expecting a little more for the money but oh well.
- Wireless internet is available but requires a daily call to the front desk for access. I understand why management decided to implement this system but it's a little cumbersome.
- Hallways are hot and stuffy.
- Pricey amenities (VHS rentals... honor bar... etc)
- 30 minute local phone calls free (not a big deal but why not just make all local calls free?)
- Curt maintenance staff.
- Entrance to parking sub-structure can scrap undercarriage of cars with low ground clearance.
- Extended basic cable stations (missing MTV2, ESPN2, etc)

CONS:
- Some entrance doors didn't work with our keys.
- Elevators smelled strange (possible pet urine?)
- No air conditioners in rooms (granted these probably wouldn't be that necessary in monterey but on the day we visited -- mid june it was unbearably hot)
- Sporadic TV issues (Volume control was finicky).
- Extra 12 dollar parking charge (why is this a separate charge?)

SUMMARY:

All n' all, my wife and I had a great time here but the price we paid didn't quite measure up to what we got. I may be cheap, but if I had a choice, I would have paid 100 - 120 / night for this place... not 200+.

Overall, my stay was extremely "pleasant". It dosen't sound that thrilling, but its the perfect description.
I was looking for a quiet place near the water, but not on Cannery Row itself. That is exactly what I got.
The continental breakfast was nice; cold stuff, but all very good. The bagles were obviously fresh, and I was quite partial to the coffee.
Dennis at the desk was a hoot. He got me everything I needed, and directed me to the nicest places to eat while I was there.

Good location, in walking distance to downtown. We stayed in a top floor room with the fireplace which was nice. You could also hear the seals or sea lions? from the balcony.

We spent 2-nights at the Victorian Inn in Monterey, Ca. and were very pleased with the room, staff and location. A fairly large room, very clean, with a gas fireplace, refrigerator, and comfortable beds. Staff was very courteous. Located within walking distance of cannery row, and the aquarium (about 4-short blocks). A nice continental breakfast and afternoon wine and cheese were served. The only downside was the small size of the dining area. Seating was limited and usually full, so food had to be taken back to the room. We will return though.

This was a fabulous place to stay. The room was clean and very spacious. The fireplace made it nice and cozy. The location was great - just a couple of blocks from cannery row. The wine and cheese reception was good. Breakfast was your standard cereals and toast.
