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.

Clean, comfy, overpriced

I was pleasantly surprised, although it didn't have the bells and whistles i.e. resturant, bar, pool, hot tub etc. The bed was very comfy (and I am VERY particular) the room was quaint, clean & quiet. Not far from resturants and entertainment, reasonably priced and had a decent breakfast bar. The only down side, I didn't care for the manager, he was a bit upity and rude... but the girl he was training was sweet.

Over rated

Rooms were clean, bed was extea firm. [...] requested our room on the back side away from street. Our room was on the side overlooking the parking lot, asked to change to the rear upon check-in. [...] Walked to fishermans warf but would not do it at night. I will try another location if returning to Monterey.

Pretty Good

It was better than expected. Rooms are bedding were very clean. The fireplace is a great touch, and doesn't smell up the room. Breakfast and night cookies were icing on the cake.

Three Star with A Little Ambiance

The staff at the Colton Inn was responsive and friendly. It offered a nice continental breakfast with some healthy selections. Our room contained a floor to ceiling window that faced out onto a greenbelt area. It also had a nice gas fireplace. The bed had sheets and for a bedspread/blanket used a dark blue duvet. I would like to think the duvet is changed between guests since it is also used as a bedspread, but there's no way to tell. The rooms were well-worn and could use some paint or a wash down of the doors and walls. All in all, would rate it three stars.

Good location

Loved the Monterey/Carmel area. Inn was conveniently located to areas we were visiting. It was quiet and we enjoyed the complimentary coffee/tead and cookies during the day.

Great places to eat right in Monterey.We drove the 17 mile loop around Pebble Beach - breath-taking views, but wait till the fog burns off.

Home Away From Home

The Colton is in easy walking distance to both the historical walk and Fisherman's Wharf areas. Plenty of restaurants and friendly pubs with friendly staff and not-too-high prices. I cannot think of a negative thing to say about the entire trip!

We all go to Monterey for the seafood but there are so many non-seafood-centered restaurants to discover...be adventurous!
