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.

Quiet in Monterey

Check in was easy - access to hotel was simple. Location was great for me as it was just far enough from downtown to be quite and close enough to get where I wanted to be in minutes. I would recommend the Colton Inn!

One quick stay

Spent one nite in Monterrey. This hotel is not within walking distance of too much. But a 6 minute car ride takes you to wherever you need to be, in all directions. We had a fireplace in the room, fridge, armoire, and cable tv with many more stations than most other places. We didn't use it, but it is good to know you can. There is even a garage, only a few spaces. Room very comfortable.

great affordable stop near downtwon

I had a late arrival after office hours and they had my keys at the door. No troubles. The rooms are a bit old requiring some maintenance. Breakfast is inside the office and you need to go either outside to the deck or to your room to eat. Walking distance to downtown and plenty of parking. Overall, very good return on what you pay

Monterey trip

The Colton Inn offers a very comfortable atmosphere and I would heartily recommend it to anyone traveling to Monterey for business or pleasure! We especially enjoy driving along the coast and visiting the wildlife sanctuary at Moss Landing![...]

Check out an excellent seafood restaurant called The Fishwife! You won't be sorry - just a short drive from the Inn.

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.

Excellent Stay, Service, and Location

We loved the location, not amongst all the other hotels but an easy walk to downtown and the wharf. Great service, courteous, and the goodies in the lobby were great. Our only complaint, the bed was very hard. Bring a layer like a comforter to sleep on.

Stay away from the wharf restaurants, go to the cannery area for seafood and downtown for food at the Crown and Anchor, the best breakfast crepes at the Monterey Crepe Co on Alvarado, and the BEST coffee and pastries at Plumes one block up from Crepes restaurant, almost right across the street from the Crown and Anchor.

Review

The Colton inn is located within walkin distance from downtown and the warf and shops, the room was clean and smelled fresh. The only drawback was that it is across the street from the fire station which sounds can be disturbing in the middle of the night.
