Great location, quiet neighbourhood. The Inn's grounds and main house is lovely. Wendy is very pleasant and accommodating. We stayed in the Garden Cottage and the Stoneleigh. Both rooms are clean, however we found the decor and overall state of the rooms tired and in need of updating. The Garden Cottage has a very strange layout, the bathroom sink is...

My Mom and I stayed at the O.M.I. in May of 2016 for five nights. We had a lovely stay in the Library room. While the room could use a little freshening up and a new mattress (Huge lump in the middle, but still comfortable on each side of the lump) our stay was comfy, relaxing and very enjoyable. The...

Perfect location for reunion with dear friends! Upon arrival we were greeted by kind, knowledgeable staff and homemade cookies! The rooms are unique, comfortable and tidy with special attention to amenities. Strolling the grounds was delightful- nooks and seating areas for gatherings abound in the well maintained gardens. A favorite time of day was breakfast provided by Wendy in the...

One night at Old Monterey Inn was not long enough! The guest room was very comfortable, the bed was too. The innkeeper's afternoon social was plentiful and delicious. Great directions and recommendations for dining and visiting the area. The breakfast was "over the top", multi-course experience. And, they monitor diet restrictions for each guest. Even in the dead of winter,...

My husband and I stayed at this charming inn to celebrate our 35th anniversary. We are so glad we did as it is a perfect spot! We stayed in the Library which was cozy and filled with books both from generations of owners and past guests. The small bookcase filled with old National Geographics made me smile and took me...

Rooms were pleasant. The grounds were like and English garden with plenty of outdoor seating to enjoy the view and a nice glass of wine. Wendy was an outstanding hostess. Overall just a very enjoyable place to rest and relax with easy access to all connecting roads to the entire Monterey Peninsula.
