We love eating the great breakfast fare at First Awakenings in the Factory Stores at the Cannery. They serve just breakfast and lunch, but have a patio dining area as well as inside dining. Great home fried potatoes and egg dishes and friendly and efficient service.

Good value for your money

Good location. Walking distance to Cannery Row and Fisherman's Warf. The hotel itself is nothing to brag about. Considering that we paid $100 per night including a pretty nice breakfast, it was a good value. Would consider staying there again for the value.

Monterey

The beds weren't that comfortable and the rooms were kind of small. The breakfast that was included wasn't that great either. There weren't that many choices and not enough seating.

Pleasant stay

We had one of the suites, and the room was beautiful. The motel's location is an easy walk to all of the Cannery Row attractions. We left our car at the hotel and walked everywhere.

moldy smell to room

upon arrival was told my reservation was incorrect. stated i did not get reservation with 2 beds. they could give me 2 beds if i did not get the stated upgraded room (prepaid without refund mind u). then proceeded 2 try and charge me a nightly rate in order 2 park my car (not previously stated). This is not a hotel i will use again. Felt they gave my room to earlier check-in, even though was a pre-paid room.

nice place to stay, was a little pricey

It was a nice location and a nice hotel. We were in CA visiting family and it was a little more expensive than we would have liked, plus the parking was $12 a day in addition to the cost of the hotel.

Good for a family

This is our second time at the Victorian; we love it mostly because we have both times managed to get a lovely large room (vaulted ceilings, fireplace, two double beds) for a very reasonable price. The hotel's proximity to the Aquarium affords us the chance to walk back and forth and even rest in the afternoon and return to see more if we desire. And the room is large enough that it is comfortable and even enjoyable to eat in rather than brave a restaurant with a tired 2 year old.
