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.

"Colton Inn is outstanding in all areas"

The Colton Inn was absolutely fantastic! Service is wonderful, employees are professional, knowledgable and assist their clients quickly and professionally. Everyone in the family was greeted with respect and felt safe. The surroundings were absolutely magnificent. I do recommend a stay at the Colton Inn and plan on returning.

Great getaway on a budget

We wanted a decent place to stay at for memorial weekend. This place was in a very decent area of Monterey. Not smack in the tourist part, but close enough (2 min)to eat and enjoy. Our other concern was being close to Carmel's beaches which were no more than a 10 min drive and having a place to come back to after the long drive to Hearst Castle. The major hotels were charging outrageous prices for no value. We got a super deal and great value here. And they had yummy treats in there lobby all day for customers!!!

Great, comfortable and affordable.

We came for the Monterey Blues Festival and enjoyed walking downtown and to the Fisherman's Wharf. A staff member at the Inn recommended a great local's restuarant at the harbor which we liked very much. The staff was very professional and made our stay pleasant at the Colton Inn. We'll be back to this hotel.

Great value

We had a pleasant night recently at the Colton. The accommodations were quite nice given the price point of under 100 dollars. It is certainly within walking distance of downtown and is in a quiet area. Nothing in particular except a good, clean place to sleep. The breakfast is adequate with bagels, bread, cereal and fruit. Afternoon snacks of cookies and coffee are a nice touch at check- in. Will come again.

Grab a bag lunch or dinner at Trader Joes and walk to the pier for a romantic affordable meal at least once....Downtown eateries are pricey or dicey.

Very cute place!

The hotel was very nice! Looked like each room had unique amenities--some had balconies, others had decks, fireplaces, etc. Our room didn't have a balcony but it had a fireplace (which was so cozy), and windows faced the back wooded/creek area. It had everything we like to have in a room--micro, fridge, cable, flat panel tv, free wifi. Front desk had an amazing selection of dvds to check out but we were too tired to watch any. Continental breakfast had lots of good stuff to choose from, and we enjoyed the cookies and tea in the evening. It would be a pretty hefty walk to get to the wharf/beach from the hotel, and way too far to walk to the aquarium. But, it's located in a quiet neighborhood area and Pacific St takes you right thru town. Very convenient location. Would definitely stay there again. :)

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

You can park for free (save at least $10 in parking fees) at the Aquarium/Cannery Row if you park on the neighborhood streets where they don't have time limit signs or meters and walk a little bit. We parked 5 blocks up on David, which leads you right to the entrance of the Aquarium. They monitor the parking meters a LOT, and most nearby meters are only 1-2 hours. Aquarium is at least a 3+ hour attraction, plus extra strolling thru Cannery Row. 2 hr meters don't cut it.

Love this Inn

Even so this Inn is not a 5 star rated hotel but I have to said it is more friendlier than most 5 star hotels that I have stayed at. For the cost it is located just far enough from downtown to avoid the noise but close enough to walk everywhere. I would stay again at this Inn if I visit Monterey again.

This Inn will save you a lot of $$. For half the price of a hotel room with a fire place, you are pretty much getting the same thing. If you don't mind a 5 min walk into town this is the place to stay at.
