We stayed 10 nights and enjoyed our second floor suite with two tv's, comfy king bed, fireplace and large patio. Location has easy access to short highway ride to Carmel plus quick ride to Monterrey bay. And, Whole Foods is across the street. This was a golfing vacation so that ease of access made things simple. Yes, we'd stay here...

I stayed one night here on Dec 20th with my 3 children. We love this hotel very much! I paid 3 stars price but felt like 4 stars service. A very cozy & clean hotel with one king & one queen sizes bed with fireplace. Big TV screen, coffee maker and toiletries. Hotel staffs are friendly. Great location, many restaurants,...

Don't be fooled by the motel look that you see when you drive into the place. I felt disappointed when we came in and waited for rodents croaches and bed bugs when we parked and registered. Well, it was all out of the window when we entered the room! The room was newly renovated and just plain awesome!!! There was...

My family reserved the town house suite so that my father-in-law can stay in the downstairs part of the unit with the Murphy bed, and my family of 3 stayed in the upstairs bedroom. The upstairs room was clean and spacious, and the bathroom was very roomy. The bathroom sink was pretty, however, I prefer more counter space to lay...

Thank you very much for your extremely comprehensive review of your recent stay with us. We are happy that you and your family enjoyed your stay in our townhouse in the main, but it's a shame that your overall impression was spoiled by a few moments at the front desk.

We stayed here for a night on 12/2. The property is in the same street and many other small inns and hotels. The rooms are clean but can use some updating (heater can be updated, is noisy and takes a while to heat up the room on cold chilly nights)., They do have an electric fireplace, but that hardly seemed...

First time I stayed at this motel and probably my last. I had high expectations after seeing it rated a 3 star inn but was totally disappointed. Tiny room size, smelled of cigarette smoke, toilet exhaust fan had dead flies accumulating inside, mold, strong draft on front door, heating lamp kept shutting on and off, low shower head, Spa out...

Mariposa Inn & Suites is very close to the shopping mall for those who are interested in that stuff. For me, it was a good base to visit nearby sightseeing, such as Point Lobos reserve and the Monterey Aquarium. The rooms were decent, great shower and it had a fireplace. The complimentary breakfast was a time and money saver as...
