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.

Nice little place

The Colton Inn is an upgrade from a regular motel and a good value for the money. They have nice bonuses like free cookies in the lobby and free DVD rentals. Great setting, trees all around, walking distance to downtown Monterey and the Fisherman's Wharf.

Good Stuff

We enjoyed our stay at the Colton Inn. It was very nice to have WiFi. The Continental breakfast could have been better.

Great for our needs/tourist stuff and JS Bach festival

We arrived by Amtrak at night.. Got lost trying to find the hotel due to the triangular streets in Monterey. Hotel is nicely located on a quieter street next to the library. Two blocks gets you to the Transit area where you can catch any bus or free trolly to tour everywhere. Nice restaurant around the corner - 1833 - fantastic bar with unusual drinks - great food. Liked the bed linens, pillows soft and fluffy. Redecorated bath. Only problem was noise from the in room referigerator and sounds of running water. We requested first floor. Parking on the property was almost an issue on Monday night. Place is very popular with regulars. Family owned hotel. Needs some more updating but for the price we were very pleased to be out of the Cannery row hustle and near transit. I will stay there again next time we visit the area.

Nice room in great location

The Colton Inn is a great place to stay; it's not 5-star, but it's close to the action, and the rooms are cozy, and the fireplace helps warm the chilly coastal nights. The staff is helpful, and the cookies and teas are available until 10:30 pm every night. we would definitely stay again. Oh, and the walls were thick enough that our teething infant didn't bother the neighbors. :)

Nice Place

The Colton Inn is in a convenient location to the area's attractions. Comfortable, clean and roomy rooms - comfortable beds, all the necessary conveniences. Helpful and friendly staff. Great continental breakfasts available during the week which is expanded on the weekends. Tea and cookies every afternoon and a nice patio area to sit and eat. Very reasonable rates; I would definitely stay there again when I visit that area.
