“Monterey Adventure”
Reviewed July 24, 2014

Beautiful accommodations, great staff, great breakfast, afternoon wine and cheese. Only downside was expensive daily parking. Centrally located, staff was eager to please, gave great suggestions for side trips and went out of their way to make our vacation enjoyable.

We stayed 3 nights over a weekend. Nice hotel, great location, excellent parking situation, polite & professional staff, great breakfast. Only issue was high price due to event that weekend but I knew that when I made my reservation.

we always stay at the Victorian Inn for our annual Monterey trip--the staff is professional, the property is well maintained...it is situated one block off Cannery Row and close to everything...the surrounding area is comfortable and the Antique Mall is a two minute walk.

We stayed in July and what a very cute place this is. The rooms, especially upstairs, are spacious and airy with vaulted ceilings. The hotel is super close to Cannery Row, the Aquarium and the Sardine Factory. I loved the wine and snacks they provided at 4:30. I heard breakfast was awesome, but I didn't get up in time. The staff was very informative and friendly.

Great location within walking distance of Cannery Row and the Aquarium. They will even let you keep your car parked in their garage until 5pm the day of checkout so you don't have to pay for parking if you want to keep exploring on your last day. The rooms were clean and cozy and actually quite big. They also have a nice wine and cheese tasting for free in the early evening.

We stayed here for two nights during our recent trip to Monterey. When we checked in, I mentioned that we were driving up to Moss Beach the next morning, and the gal at the front desk went above and beyond by printing out directions for us. At check out, the guy at the front desk did a similar thing, printing out driving directions to the San Francisco airport. Their assistance was greatly appreciated! Our room (Room 123) was fine, although the beds were extremely short (I'm only 5-'4", and my feet almost hung off the end of the bed) and the shower head was mounted very low. For the price, I was expecting a much more updated room. Instead, money has been spent on "fluff" to make the room feel fancier - an ornate "runner" laying across the end of the bed, "Tuscan" artwork, ornate light fixtures above the nightstand. There was a nice patio off of the room, and the property's gardens are lovely. Breakfast was decent, with lots of fruit, cereal, eggs, French toast, and pastries available. The lobby/breakfast area has great potential, but everything is painted white at this point, which doesn't feel very "Victorian". And I still can't figure out why guests have to pay extra for parking in the hotel's garage. Kind of rubbed me the wrong way since I already felt like I overpaid for the room. If we ever go back to Monterey, I'll definitely look at other lodging options.

Room Tip: Be prepared to wake up early - the seagulls start making a racket at about 4:30 each morning.

We are very appreciative of you honest comments and want to thank you for recognizing our wonderful service staff. We are pleased to share that we are planning on renovating our guest bathrooms, room corridors, lobby, and breakfast parlor. We are currently in the process of creating a model bathroom that will serve as a template for the renovations. In 2013, we recently purchased all new furniture for our guest rooms along with new patio furniture, art work, and flat screen televisions, as we are continually investing in our properties. We hope that you will consider returning to experience all of changes firsthand.

Management of the Inns of Monterey

The hotel is reasonably priced. There was a balcony outside of our room, and though it was quite small, it was really enjoyable to sit outside. We had a small terrier dog and each of them welcomed him with loving arms and many treats!
