Monterey inn offers spacious rooms, free breakfast and afternoon snacks

Located in the heart of downtown Monterey, the Colton Inn is surrounded by historic adobe structures and lies within minutes of the top city attractions, including Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row and the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Half a mile from the Colton Inn, the Monterey Conference Center is the premier convention and meeting space in the area. Spacious Colton Inn guest rooms are recently refreshed with down comforters and 400-thread-count sheets. A dry sauna, a sun deck and a gas grill are also available.

Highlights
  • Many guest rooms feature a fireplace
  • Free breakfast and afternoon snacks
  • Within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf
Location

Just a few minutes from the Colton Inn, Fisherman's Wharf Monterey serves as a central hub of social activity in this bayside city. Originally built in 1870, the wharf was at the heart of the commercial fishing industry in the area for decades. Today, Fisherman's Wharf plays host to restaurants, fishing, live theater, souvenir shops and folks who just like to take in the view.

Rooms

Central Coast sunshine spills into Colton Inn guest rooms, many of which feature balconies, fireplaces, whirlpool tubs, microwave ovens or refrigerators. Choose one king or two queen-sized beds. Free Wi-Fi Internet access, cable television, DVD/VHS players and a library of free movies are also provided. Coffee-makers available upon request.

Dining

Complimentary continental breakfast is served daily from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. Enjoy complimentary afternoon snacks on the sun deck.


For dinner, numerous fantastic options lie within a few minutes of the Colton Inn. The Crown and Anchor is a Monterey favorite. The menu and the decor evoke the British Isles instead of the Central Coast of California -- try the fish and chips, or steak and mushroom pie. But with food this good, and an everyone-is-welcome attitude, The Crown and Anchor is one that cannot be missed.

great stay

We had a wonderful stay at the Colton and will surely return. The location is quiet and near town. Our room was simple and clean if not glamorous. Ask for a kitchenette if needed because not all rooms are equipped as such.

Great value and very clean!

This hotel was a great value through a travel website. It was very clean and we loved the continental breakfast and evening cookies and fruit! The patio is very pretty with flowers, greenery and a little stream running behind it. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was clean. The room was large enough to accommodate our family of 3 adults and 2 kids. The only problems we had were that the sliding glass door was off the track and we couldn't lock the door and the housekeepers carts blocked the way to the patio for breakfast every morning. Also, the staff was cordial but not overly welcoming. Other than that I would definitely recommend this hotel!

Nice Place

The Colton Inn is in a convenient location to the area's attractions. Comfortable, clean and roomy rooms - comfortable beds, all the necessary conveniences. Helpful and friendly staff. Great continental breakfasts available during the week which is expanded on the weekends. Tea and cookies every afternoon and a nice patio area to sit and eat. Very reasonable rates; I would definitely stay there again when I visit that area.

Well...depends on the room

If you manage to get a room facing away from the street you won't have to listen to traffic all day. So that's not a deal breaker. But staff is a little less than conscientious about details: I had to wait for a delayed check in while the staff finished cleaning the room. Very irritating after a long trip, to be told to take a drive or a walk and come back later, since I was already paying for the room. And what's with an office door sign at 8:30 PM on a Friday saying "Sorry we missed you"? It was too late to check out any of their "hundreds" of DVD movies, or to ask a question or get service, before NINE PM on a Friday? And you know how almost all hotels have coffee makers in room these days? Have to ask specifically for it here.

Clean and comfortable

The room was comfortable and clean and smelled fine. Everything worked. The Inn was not fancy. The price was reasonable for the value received.

Nice room in great location

The Colton Inn is a great place to stay; it's not 5-star, but it's close to the action, and the rooms are cozy, and the fireplace helps warm the chilly coastal nights. The staff is helpful, and the cookies and teas are available until 10:30 pm every night. we would definitely stay again. Oh, and the walls were thick enough that our teething infant didn't bother the neighbors. :)

2 night getaway

Convenient location in a quieter, historical part of Monterey. Simple continental breakfast. Older, but generally functional, room amenities. Very nice to have a refrigerator and microwave in the room. Appreciated the fruit and cookies in the lobby. Improvements: toilet would flush on its own due to an internal leak; blinds let too much light in around the edges.

Great Place To Stay

The room was large and the fireplace added a great touch to the room. The room was very clean and we could not detect any odor of any kind as we have in other hotels, all of the inn in non-smokin. The staff was very friendly and helpful to all our needs. The room was very quiet and we could not hear our neighbors or the traffic. We eat our breakfast the two mornings we stayed there on the large back deck near the main office, which was great. The location of the inn was a short drive to all the attraction or a short distance to the trolley stops, which is free. We will definicely stay again the next time we visit Monterey.
