We had a great 2 day stay. Hotel room was clean, cozy and comfortable. Amenities, customer service, and breakfast was very satisfying. The Victorian Inn was close and walking distance to a cannery row and multiple restaurant choices. The evening urdurbs were on point and offered iced tea and lemonade for non alcohol consumers.

This Inn was the perfect place for us to stay. It is an older building, but it is furnished with lovely antique decor to match the era. The rooms are large with extra high ceilings. Comfortable bed and refinished bathroom. Walking distance to Cannery row. Very friendly staff. Wish we could have stayed longer!

What a great place to stay! The Victorian in really is central to many places we like to visit; Cannery Row, the Breakwater Beach, the Aquarium, many great restaurants, etc. All within walking distance of a few blocks. The Inn offers garage parking (as of date, we paid $19 per day). They had a very nice wine and cheese happy hour and a simple, but good breakfast of eggs and sausage, grapes, bananas, Bagels, bread (including gluten free), waffles, and cereal. And their coffee was really good!!! The standard king room was big, comfortable, and nicely appointed. In January, the weather was beautiful but cool. So luckily we had our own car blankets that provided the extra covers we like at night. But I'm sure we could have asked for another blanket delivered to our room. We had only one complaint. When we returned to our room at around 4 p.m., we did not receive maid service and had to run down housekeeping for some fresh towels. It's possible that we may have needed to let them know we wanted housekeeping, I don't know. No one said anything. We will definitely stay here again. Especially in January when the rate is so good!

We’ve stayed at the hotel many times in the past with our dog. When prices went up, it was out of budget. We were able to afford this year, and came with our new pup. All we remembered was the same. Great customer service. They “pet-tolerant” meaning they charge a hefty pet fee, and do not have any specific location for a dog to do their business. However, with that said, they are welcoming in the lobby, with a sign with your dog’s name, some treats and a water bowl. The grounds are beautiful, with gardens between the buildings. Rooms face either the street (not too loud) or the gardens. As others have stated, it is walking distance to everywhere. There is a daily parking fee if you have a vehicle. They offer a wine & cheese time in the late afternoon (tea & lemonaid for non-drinkers), and a full breakfast in the am (eggs, meat, fruit, breads, oatmeal, waffles, cereals and beverages). Pets are not allowed in the dining area, yet trays are provided if asked for. The staff in the lobby and dining room were very nice and accommodating. The bed was very comfortable, and a King room is very spacious, with a fireplace (not much heat). The area is safe for walking at night, and if you have a dog, there are many locations to walk for you both to enjoy. Being one block from the ocean you can hear the sea lions in the morning. As our budget affords, we will always return to this hotel.

Ideal location for a stay in Monterey Bay. Just one block from the main cycle/walk path along the front. Perfect 5km morning running route (there and back) to Lovers Point to watch the sunrise. Great breakfast, although busy when we stayed but the staff we quick to replenish food and clear away. Just 2 blocks down to Cannery Row for plenty of shops and cafe choices. We stayed with our 4 year old son and had a great time.

An excellent experience. I loved everything about this hotel. The room, (with fire) the views across the bay, the cheese and wine, the breakfast and the staff. Secure parking. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Good access to the rest of Monterey.

We've stayed here 3 times in the past few years. It's clean, quiet (room 302 this stay). The staff is friendly and professional. Easy walk to Cannery Row. Great free breakfast, nice wine and cheese hour in the evening. Highly recommended.

This stay I decided to go a little upscale, very happy I did- impressive! The first thing that struck me when I entered my room was the cleanliness. and the room itself was great. My prerequisite fireplace of course, a small balcony with a couple of chairs was used a lot. Of course everything in the room worked great, housekeeping was spot on. In fact the staff at every point was friendly and helpful, very professional. The morning breakfast was well done and the afternoon wine & cheese was a super nice touch. Even though my room faced the street, the traffic never bothered me even with the balcony door open. No real views, but I enjoyed sitting out there and chilling. In fact I'd ask for a street side room again. If your visiting Cannery Row/Aquarium and Fisherman's Wharf, this is a great spot to stay without breaking the bank. A full range of restaurants are also in walking distance, from Carl's Jr to Chart House or Sardine Factory, everything in between. You can park the car and leave it! A very impressive stay!
