Monterey Peninsula Inn

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Best thing I can say about this place is that the place was clean and housekeeping seemed to do a thorough job every day. No air conditioning and it was HOT the 3 nights I stayed there. They have a clunky box fan in the closet. Not very impressive or effective. Bed was comfortable enough and the TV was modern. I was across from the fire pit and there were folks out there and audible every night. At least they seemed to disband by 10 pm or so. I don't know whether that was them being considerate or hotel policy but it may be best to ask or make sure you are far away if you are a light and/or early sleeper. Decent sized refrigerator and microwave a good bonus.

Check in was very smooth and fast. When went in side the room, room was clean, room had everything we expected. Price was fair. Will definitely recommend to friends and family!

The room we got was spacious, clean, modern, very comfortable, and overall wonderful. It had everything we needed and it felt very cozy and luxurious. Our room was the deluxe studio and we wish we could have stayed longer. The gentleman at the front desk was very friendly and made check-in a pleasant experience. Definitely booking here again next time we're in town!

This guiet little inn is clean and comfortable. Its location is just around the corner from 17mile road to Caremel and just a few blocks from the Aquarium. Place is updated however the bathroom sink is build a little high. I would recommend this place.

Nice updated hotel and short 5 mintute drive to Monterey attractions. The beds were very comfortable and they even upgraded our room to a full kitchen.

The location of the Inn was good - close to the beach, golf course and downtown Pacific Grove. The staff was most helpful and had restaurant and activity suggestions printed off for us at checkin. It was nice to have coffee, tea, juice, and muffins available each morning.

The only thing i like is the room shower. the actual room is small and noisy

Efficient check-in, friendly staff, spacious and clean room with a patio. Pet friendly with a welcome package. Would definitely recommend and will stay here again.

The hotel is old but kept clean. The staff was great, room was always made up and cleaned every night when I came back. The price was good for the area, close to the ocean and lots of thing to do.

Very friendly staff, easy checkin, recently remodeled. Quick walk to beach. Redoing their pool just on time for season. Pet friendly. Only thing to note that is limited is breakfast. We will definitely stay here next trip.

Horrible mattress, VERY small room, with no table.

Stayed a few days for work,great place for the money

It seemed overpriced, possibly due to the Thanksgiving holiday. My room was comfortable but unfortunately there was no desk so it was difficult to use a computer. A card-game table was provided, upon request, but it was not comfortable to use with the chair.

We got in around 3am and called the number posted on the door. The night manager did not seem to happy to be woken up which is somewhat understandable but you are the night manager. Beds were good and room was clean. Checkout lady was very friendly. No issues with this hotel and it was a great place to get a few hours of sleep.

Overall good experience. Will recommend to others.

Cosy, cosy. Very good for short stay. Close to some very nice shops. Probably the best shower ever.

Very nice place with full kitchen, felt like we rented our own little house. Nice location near town and beach.

My only complaint was the room location we chose. We were upstairs and the walls were thin. Neighbors using the kitchen at 6am sounded like they were in our room. Would stay at this place again, but NOT in the same room!

Hotel was clean and comfortable. Service was great. Wifi is horrible.

Very clean outstanding staff what more can you ask for!!!!!!!!!
