This all-suite sleep fits right into its downtown Monterey location thanks to a Spanish adobe-inflected design. The spacious lobby has a homey vibe, from the terra-cotta tile floors and working fireplace to the cowhide chairs and comfy sofas. Outside, a double height waterfall feature anchors a quiet courtyard that’s perfect for soaking up the year-round Central Cali sunshine. Guestrooms start at a spacious 450 square feet, with hardwood floors, seating areas, gas fireplaces and mini fridges. All bathrooms have both tubs and standalone showers, and each room has a private, furnished patio or balcony (accessed via an outdoor corridor in Standard Junior Suites). There’s no restaurant, but a hearty breakfast spread of pastries, fruit, yogurt and more is served each morning, and there are free afternoon refreshments.
In the Area
For family trips, a stop at the town’s famed aquarium is a must, as is a tour with Princess Monterey Whale Watching for dolphin, orca and humpback whale spotting. Spend an afternoon browsing the shops, galleries and wine-tasting rooms along Cannery Row — some favorites include the Cannery Row Antique Mall and Pierce Ranch Vineyards outpost. For a memorable meal, make a reservation at the wonderfully old-fashioned Sardine Factory and be sure to order the abalone bisque, which was served at President Reagan’s inaugural dinner.
How to Get There
The property is beautiful. It’s walking distance to down town. Linda and Karen where awesome.I would return. The room is very spacious with a fireplace and patio. Hot tub is private. There is on site parking for $20 but worth it since street parking is usually 2 hour limit. Great place!
This was one of the best hotels on our Western Wonders tour. Large, luxurious room with salon and big real effect gas fire to keep things warm as the weather got a little colder. The 1st floor rooms also had a little balcony overlooking gardens. A great hotel in this lovely little town
Great location just a short walk to fisherman's wharf, cannery row and tons of shops and amazing restaurants. The hotel grounds are beautiful and well maintained with lots of areas to sit and relax outside. The staff are all so friendly and helpful. The room far exceeded my expectations with a patio, fireplace, comfy bed and lovely bathroom. I couldn't imagine staying anywhere else in Monterey again after finding this gem, cant wait to return.
Spacious yet cozy room! Fireplace was romantic touch. The staff was very accommodating. Location was a short 5 minute drive to Cannery Row and the attractions. The hotel has a continental breakfast but it was mediocre. Otherwise, great stay.
Charming old world feel, but with modern amenities. Bed and bedding was sooo comfortable. The shower was fantastic. Called for assistance to program heater and was surprised by the quick response.Was very pleased to have chosen this hotel. Definitely plan to return!
