Recent guest reviews

Great location near many good restaurants And walking paths

The room was very cute....loved the fireplace however, the building is old. Floors creaked, could hear doors closing, carts rolling down the hall and anything going on below our window outside. And, they hit me for another $15 a night to park. Felt a bit gauged. It was okay but not worth the $ in my opinion.

a very nice wine and cheese happy hour, the rooms are always very clean, this location is great when going for a walk.

Room was nice but the pillows were too hard therefore not a good night's sleep

Great location, very walkable. The gas fireplace was HUGE when the power went out. We used to dry our clothes, keep warm, and light the room. Awesome amenity. Unfortunately, we faced the street which had some noise, with the back of an ugly building. They really should/need to renovate the bathroom. I liked that the floor was laminate rather than the usual carpeting everywhere.

This is a decent place to stay close to the marine

Pros: Very close to Cannery row. Free breakfast, which will save you money, as it can get expensive eating out. The appearance of the room was neat, housekeeping was great. Fireplace, Mini fridge, coffee maker & free wifi. Cons: rooms had an old musty smell, walls and floor/ceiling are very thin; if there are people in the room above you, you will hear every step as a stomp. The entrance to the parking structure is horrible, we own a standard height car and cringed anytime we had to leave the parking garage as it would scrape the undercarriage with no mercy. At over $200 a night you're paying for convenience of being near the aquarium, but we found out by exploring a little more that there are more options, at night, for food and drinks near Alvarado St. I can not say that this Inn is horrible, but I do feel comfortable saying it needs a slight update. If your main purpose for visiting Monterey is for Aquarium & Cannery Row and you can afford over $200 a night go for it. Some people might not be bothered by the same things I was bothered by.

I wasn't aware there was no air conditioning in this hotel and it was a very hot day. Even with 2 fans, it took a long time for the room to cool down. In addition, the water in the shower would fluctuate in temperature. I will no go back to this hotel.

The rooms are nicely renovated and the staff was friendly. The location is nice and walkable to Cannery Row. Didnt love having to pay $15/day for parking, and also the bathrooms were NOT renovated...and show the (literal) cracks in an otherwise fairly nice place. The bathroom just felt small and kind of grimy, although I do think it was clean. The shower was also strange...two shower heads and water comes out of both and you can't control it. They do a nice wine and cheese hour as well as breakfast, which was also nice.

Very nice overnight stay with easy parking for additional $15 or $20. Breakfast in main building included. Quick walk to restaurants and aquarium. Wine and cheese reception each day.

Very clean, very nice staff, and over the top continental breakfast.

This hotel was nice, clean, typical breakfast. The only negative was the noise. Our room was on the street side and the traffic noise was very loud at night.

No good servic !whren i was in your hotel , electric out evry 10-15minut , You need see, whre are problems! You have same servic so good , like brakfast so nice , pepoles are in riceptions ... Very active ,,,

Friendly staff. Clean rooms. Breakfast good. Location is excellent for aquarium and cannery row.

Hotel staff was just fine. Hotel was a perfect location for or trip.

I had a great experience staying in this hotel, great location, beautiful, cozy room. I loved the fireplace!!!!

I would recommend this hotel for a very comfortable place to stay close to Cannery Row and the Aquarium. Our room was very nice with a fireplace and a little balcony with a table and chairs. They had a nice wine and cheese hour in the afternoon and complimentary breakfast.

The Victorian Inn has spacious clean rooms that have all of the amenities that you would need while visiting the Monterey/Cannery Row area. The breakfast included eggs, sausage, cereals, juices, coffee and tea. Also the afternoon wine and cheese hours were enjoyed and appreciated. It is within easy walking distance to Cannery Row shopping, restaurants and attractions. Parking on premises is included and readily available. A good choice!

Loved this hotel. Great staff at check in. Comfortable room. I'm to been unusually warm on our trip up the coast. Hotel doesn't have a/c, but the room cooled off nicely with a small open window. Heard sea lions in the distance - made it my favorite night of the trip

Husband and I stayed here overnight, it was a bit expensive but was nice. We arrived earlier than check in time and was checked in. Husband emailed them before we arrived and told them it was my birthday and they brought up a bottle of wine,chocolate, and a note wishing me a happy birthday, even though I don't drink it was a very nice gesture. The bed was soft but comfortable we're used to a firm bed. The room was nice and clean. The refrigerator was nice and cold, a microwave would've been great, a foot stool or something to put up your feet would also be nice, and a bigger table to eat at. The Continental breakfast was good a lot better than the place we stayed at last time.The only bad thing I have to say is we had ordered a couple hamburgers from there room service pamphlet that we were disappointing, the hamburgers weren't cooked the way we asked and were very greasy. Other than that our stay was great and if the price was right we would stay again.

Hello Jenny, Thank you very much for your honest comments. We were all delighted to hear that you found your room to be comfortable and cozy with the fireplace but regret that you did not have a more pleasant stay. We will certainly share your feedback with our team as we are always looking for areas where we need to improve. In addition, it is typical in this area for properties to charge for parking and we make sure to list this on our website and all of our descriptors. We regret that this made you feel less of our hotel and hope that we can welcome you back soon on your next trip to Monterey!

decent hotel close to the aquarium

Fireplace and tv

Pros: Very close to Cannery row. Free breakfast, which will save you money, as it can get expensive eating out. The appearance of the room was neat, housekeeping was great.

I wasn't aware there was no air conditioning in this hotel and it was a very hot day. Even with 2 fans, it took a long time for the room to cool down. In addition, the water in the shower would fluctuate in temperature. I will no go back to this hotel.
