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 location, very friendly, caring staff

The staff was very helpful and friendly. Considering that the inn was almost full for the weekend, there was no shortage of snacks and complementary breakfast. The room we had was quiet, and very comfortable.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The old wharf and pier is only a short walk away. The MBA is further, but very doable walk.

Labor Day Getaway

The Hotel was handsome and neatly manicured. Upon entry into the room we were pleasantly surprised, it was larger than the online photos made it appear. It was clean, had TV, microwave, and a refer. There was also a DVD player, we did not use it, but one of the patrons at the front desk said the movies were free, view and return. It was a short walk (.6 mile) to the Warf, down for dinner and sightseeing, back and a good sleep on a comfortable bed. Ceiling fan, fireplace with a burnable log. Second day a nice brunch, on a cosy deck with greenery to view, not another building. Later we drove to Cannery Row, visited many shops, went to the Aquarium, and to dinner at one of the excellent restaurants. Returned, a good nights sleep. When leaving, the staff was again was very helpful on directions to the Hwy, without having to return through town. We will go again.

Nice Location, Clean room

This hotel was in a great location, just a few minutes from the beach. The hotel was very clean. The sheets were very soft and the bed spread were feather bed spreads. They gave us free movie rentals. We also got free breakfast, which was quite good. The only complaint I have was that we found three spiders in our room during our stay. Other than that, I would recommend this hotel.

Quick Get Away

Nice location. Able to walk to town and to see sights. Room was nice. Had a fireplace and was really quiet. Missed having coffee in room in the morning and office did not open until 7:00am so we missed out on the breakfast.
