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.

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!

Nice stay, but ...

Wireless internet did not work (in my room) till the last night of my stay (4 nights). Staff said a techie had been called first night, ditto 2nd night and 3rd night was told the system has just been "rebooted" and when I returned (after finding it still didn't worK), when I complained that it had not worked for 3 days, was told "I could check out". The Colton Inn is within walking distance to downtown. The the room was nice, clean and the bed comforable.

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.

Convenient, good value

The Colton Inn was a perfect location for attending First Night Moneterey New Years celebration. The room was clean and comfortable. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The property is an old-style motel (including a retro-style kitchenette), but well maintained. A very good value for the price.
