After a four night stay, it is the most relaxing vacation in many years. Excellent breakfast and a nice wine/cheese reception. Easy walking distance to restaurants, hiking and attractions. Fireplace and sitting area in the room were appreciated.

Room Tip: I had a room on the street side and if the window was open -- it was too noisy for me.

My wife and I stayed here on our Honeymoon for 3 nights. We really enjoyed our stay here. Our room was clean and quaint. We really liked that the hotel was within walking distance to the aquarium, fisherman's wharf, shopping and dining. Since were were on a tight budget we really liked the complementary breakfast in the morning and wine and cheese in the evening. It is a nice touch to start and finish your day. We look forward to returning the Victorian Inn soon.

Room Tip: Pay the extra money to get a room away from the street. Street side room was loud due to traffic dri...

Clean, family friendly hotel in Monterey within walking distance of all the tourist spots and a short drive to the 17 mile drive and Carmel. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful! Definitely recommend eating at Sea Harvest for dinner; the hotel continental breakfast is decent and while the city itself is a bit touristy, it has its own charm nonetheless. Definitely recommend this hotel if you're travelling on a budget!!

Great location.. Walking distance to Cannery Row and Monterey Aquarium. Rooms are clean, breakfast is more than adequate, nice wine and cheese reception in the afternoon. Great value compared to the other hotels in the area. Would definitely stay here again!

The staff was very friendly and helpful. Great location and service. Breakfast was delicious and very organized. The hotel was very clean. My daughter forgot her tablet in the room. I called the next day & the housekeeping staff had found it and left it at the front desk. It was sent to my home address. I would definitely stay here again!

We moved here from Monterey Beach resort and it was a considerable improvement. The location was excellent being minutes walk from the Aquarium and Cannery Row. We booked a family suite which we were pleased to be able to reserve at very short notice. We didn't book a sleepover bed ahead and unfortunately there was none available when we arrived. The suite was very comfortable and comprised two large single beds and a sitting room with double sofa bed plus kitchenette. Staff were extremely helpful and provided spare linen for the room. The breakfast buffet was ok. Value for money for our family of four was acceptable compared with Monterey Beach Resort. There appeared to be no way to get to the reception from the bedrooms which was a bit confusing initially. There was a lift from the bedrooms down to the garage below. Overall we found this a comfortable place to stay.

It took forever to check in. Parking was free. Room was nice. Hallway is worn out and needs to be updated NOW. Price is very, very, very overpriced for what you get. They have 1 old PC to use while standing up in the lobby which is so slow it took me 10 minutes to log into my e-mail. I was unable to bring up Facebook as the PC didn't have enough memory. They have a very, very short free Happy Hour, but no one at the front desk is able to confirm when it starts. One guy said 4:30. The other said 5:30. Bizarre. Room did have nice balcony and gas fireplace which was very nice. You may buy tickets at the hotel for the Monterey Aquarium which is great and saves you a lot of time and no wait to get in.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else. It was extremely expensive, and on an off street that was difficult to find an...

We want to thank you for your honest comments, as they provide us our best opportunity to continually improve. We were all disappointed that your stay was less than entirely wonderful and are very sorry that you encountered an issue while using our lobby computer. This fall we will begin renovating our front desk, which will include new stations for our guests to utilize the internet. Additionally, we will be renovating our room corridors, breakfast parlor, and guest bathrooms, which we hope will address many of your concerns. We would also like to assure you that we will certainly review your feedback with our staff regarding our complimentary wine and cheese reception hours, as we always want to provide our guests with accurate information so that they might have the opportunity to enjoy such gatherings. In regards to pricing, our room rates reflect demand and seasonality on the Monterey Peninsula, with summer months and weekends commanding higher rates. However, during our non-peak season we do offer many different pricing options and attractive packages and promotions.

Sincerely,
Management of the Inns of Monterey
