How to Get There
I randomly booked this hotel for one night for a quick overnight trip with my mom. It's right across the street from the beautiful ocean and is a 10 minute walk from the aquarium and cannery row. The building is SO charming and leans into the fact that the building is from the late 1800's. They serve wine, soda, and snacks (including homemade veggie pizza) in the dining room with a view and fireplace. The staff was absolutely lovely.
There are no TVs in the rooms, and they tend to be a little small, so people who were there in the evening congregated in the common rooms watching football, playing board games (provided), reading the many books on the shelves, or reading about the history of the hotel. The other guests, many of which were returners, were also lovely.
The breakfast is to die for. I don't want to spoil it, but between the food, the views, and the hotel's collection of silverware it's something I would return for.
So comfortable. Coffee, tea and fruit anytime. Cookies in the evening. Wine and appetizers 5:30 - 7. Great breakfasts. Right across the street from the coastal path. Only a few minutes from the aquarium and the shopping area. Free parking. Adequate free wifi. Big TV in the conference room to watch the game without bothering anyone else. Very nice staff.
An unexpected surprise judging from the outside: inside you'll find lovely antique furniture throughout, exceptionally accommodating staff, wonderful breakfasts, plentiful fresh fruit all day, polished silver place settings in a somewhat stiff dining room with breathtaking ocean views: I'd give the Martine Inn a A+ for location, an A- for comfort (I'd wished for a comfortable sofa in which to take in the ocean view), an A for cozy comfortable rooms, and a B- on exterior -- much in need of an upgrade as it downplays what you'll find inside. Many small niceties include fresh cookies, great coffee and tea available all day, sparkling wine and chocolate strawberries for every guest, and a charming breakfast server. Thank you!
Martine Inn is a delightful bay view b&b in Pacific Grove, next door to Monterey. Each room is unique, comfortable, and individually decorated. The staff is friendly and helpful, from their welcome to their goodbye (when they gave us a departure bag with bottled water and banana bread). Breakfast is served on china, with silver cutlery and coffee service. The inn goes out of its way to make you feel welcome, including even adjusting the offerings on its afternoon wine and hors d'ouevres service to suit dietary needs if you let them know in advance. Really unique is the owner's vintage MG collection. We loved the entire experience, and will stay here again the next time we plan on going to Monterey.
This was our fourth stay at Martine Inn, and we we hope for many more visits. Each time we stay at this Inn, we feel Emily Dickinson’s “Wild Nights!” poem to the core, “Done with the Compass — Done with the Chart!,” as we moor here each day and night.
Thank you, Don (and staff), for once again giving us such an Eden (paradise) experience.
