My husband and I drove down to Monterey just to have us a night away with no children. We stayed here because the room offered a fireplace (Awesome). The room was really comfortable, bed was awesome, fire had our room nice and toasty. It was also raining cats and dogs Friday, so the fireplace was a great addition. Check in...

We have been coming back to Victorian Inn for many years. It is always a delight, the wine and cheese in the lobby in the evenings, the breakfasts, more than just sweet rolls and coffee, and the fireplaces! The hotel is spotless, the staff is very courteous and helpful and the rooms are really comfortable. The bang for your buck...

We had a corner room with a great view of the Bay. The front desk was very friendly and helpful with recommendations for dinner and the Aquarium. The grounds to the hotel are well kept and well maintained. The property is an easy walk to Cannery Row, the Acquarium, and the bike path.

Stayed for only one night, great location walking distance to Cannery Row and Aquarium. Pros: Location, large room, fireplace, balcony, partial ocean view, small fridge, cocktail hour and breakfast included Cons: Room dated, smelled musty and uncomfortable bed. Summary: I felt it was pricey for we we got, would definitely look for a better place.

Good value for service, and although not ocean front, we did have a peek of ocean from our second-story room. I imagine the view is better from the third story rooms. We booked a "Deluxe" room, which was cozy with a fireplace and balcony. Not the highest-tier accomodation they offer ("Premier"), but maybe a bit nicer than "Standard," although all...
