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.
Many guest rooms feature a fireplace
Free breakfast and afternoon snacks
Within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf
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.
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.
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.

There are a lot of hotels to choose from in Monterey. I chose Colton because of the location, the free movies, the comfortable room, the free wifi and breakfast. It delivered on all of those things, plus the staff was oh-so-gracious. I will come
If you manage to get a room facing away from the street you won't have to listen to traffic all day. So that's not a deal breaker. But staff is a little less than conscientious about details: I had to wait for a delayed check in while the staff
finished cleaning the room. Very irritating after a long trip, to be told to take a drive or a walk and come back later, since I was already paying for the room. And what's with an office door sign at 8:30 PM on a Friday saying "Sorry we missed you"? It was too late to check out any of their "hundreds" of DVD movies, or to ask a question or get service, before NINE PM on a Friday? And you know how almost all hotels have coffee makers in room these days? Have to ask specifically for it here.
I spent the weekend in Monterey to run the Big Sur marathon. The Colton Inn was very easy to find, only a few minutes off RT 1. The desk attendant was very cheerful and asked if I was there to run. The room was big and clean, and included a mini
fridge, microwave, big flat screen tv, dvd player, and fireplace (which I unfortunately did not get a chance to use). The Inn is in a great location, a 15 minute walk to the beach. I will stay here again next time I'm in Monterey.
