This is an absolutely lovely Victorian mansion by the sea. It's family run and every detail is lovingly attended to. We were treated like royalty. We saw whales from our breakfast table! The location is excellent. I would suggest this for vacationers and romantic travelers.

We have been seeing whales daily from our parlor lately. The Monterey Bay is rich with sea food this year and some restaurants are even serving fresh barbecued sardines. You can see some great whale photos shot from the Martine Inn on our Facebook page. Thanks for your review.

Wow! The Martine was little more expensive than I was looking for, and my sister and I stayed in the cheapest room, The Monterey Room. But it was ABSOLUTELY worth it and I will be returning. Most websites talk up their accommodations, but Martine exceeded all expectations. It is within walking distance of Cannery Row and the Aquarium but is...

We stayed here as an alternative to our usual favorite, The Intercontinental Hotel. So you have to understand this review in that context. While the general outdoor appearance of the house is not very impressive, inside, it is a quaint Victorian style Inn with commanding Pacific views. The staff is so friendly and accommodating, the food is excellent, likely the...

All our queen beds have had new pillow top mattresses installed within the past few weeks. You must have come prior to that. We invite mattress snobs.

This was our third stay and each time we have been treated liked royalty. From the elegate breakfast to the wine and cheese everything is top notch. We always pick a different room. This time it was the Edith Head. Great tub! Ocean view from the breatfast room. Close to Cannery Row. An overall treat! You'll be happy you stayed...

great location, excellent breakfast, friendly staff, close to attractions. Parking can be difficult, but not impossible. Ocean view from the breakfast room, able to view otters, dolphins and quite possibly whales with a direct view of the Monterey Bay.

Thanks for your review. You state our location is great for viewing the sea life and every day this week we have watched whales from our parlor.

Yes, peace and quiet all weekend at The Martine Inn. Loved it. Reluctantly we decided to risk it and try a b&b which we've never done, (hubby likes room service) and I thought "to close for comfort" right? Wrong. This b&b had the perfect location. Perfect views. Our room was adorable, clean and quiet. Go back in time, and be...

Being located in a quiet residential area right on the Monterey Bay Sanctuary with the sound of the waves hitting the Pacific Grove coastline creates a time that you can hear yourself and your significant other. We appreciate your review.

We stayed at the Martine Inn for 2 nights last week. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we felt right at home. We were informed upon arrival that our room was upgraded, free of charge, for our honeymoon. What a pleasant surprise!! A bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries were even left in our room....

Lovely little inn right on the water. Just far enough away for a quiet evening but close enough to walk to the waterfront strip. Staff couldn't have been nicer. Rooms have no TV but there is wifi if you still want to connect but why would you! We stayed only one night but want to go back!

Mainly planned for a whale watching trip in Monterey on a Sunday, we decided to spend the day and the night before local. Out of tons of opportunities we selected the Martine Inn, initially because of the close proximity to the waterfront in Pacific Grove. But what a surprise, we were welcomed at one of the most lovely places we...
