My husband and I have been to Monterey many times, and we have yet to find a hotel that we like there. We'd really hoped that the Martine Inn would be the one. Sadly, it was not. We have reasonably high expectations for a hotel of this price (we paid $489/night + tax), but as my other ratings indicate, we...

"My husband and I have been to Monterey many times, and we have yet to find a hotel that we like there." I am sorry you were not pleased with the Martine Inn, but not surprised after your lead in sentence. You even complained about the bed which is a new pillow topped Serta Mattress. I apologize for the smoke...

The Martine Inn has a lot going for it, nice location near the center of Monterey and amazing views on the Pacific Ocean. It probably used to be a nice place to spend a couple of nights as attested by the many awards it won in the 80s and 90s. Alas, not anymore. The rooms were last refurbished at a...

This was a family of 2 adults and a young daughter and son. The parents allowed the children to run unsupervised through out the inn. The mother was in another building in the parlor 100 feet away from the daughter when the daughter proceeded to yell and scream and pound on their room door for over 5 minutes. I went...

We had a great stay at the Martine Inn last weekend. The staff was friendly and very helpful, the room was comfortable, the provided breakfast and afternoon wine and snacks were great. There is an exceptional view of the Bay from the dining room window. The Inn is within walking distance to the Aquarium and Cannery Row. All in all...

We booked the Martine as a change from hotels which can all look the same. The Martine has an old fashioned charm, lots of nice touches such as wine & canapes at 6pm, served cooked breakfast, free cookies, coffee & fruit. There was a full size pool table and 2 pianos which my children enjoyed and free wifi. The location...

We appreciate your review. I checked the shower today and it provided a reasonable spray. Our shower heads are restricted for the drought so it is never a heavy spray.

Used this inn as a jumping off place for whale watching. Super location - walkable to the Monterrey Aquarium. Rooms are old fashioned (ours had the sink in the room), with antique furniture but very comfortable. Good evening cocktails with appetizers. Beautiful breakfast also comes with your stay.

The views from this bed and breakfast are amazing and the location is perfect. It is located directly across from the Monterey Bay and within walking distance of the Aquarium, Lover's Point, and Cannery Row etc. The full breakfast was always good and the staff was very helpful. The decor was a bit too Victorian for our taste, but we...

The location is great if you intend to see the aquarium. It is about 5 minutes away and there is a harbor seal sanctuary on the way. This is the first old B&B I've stayed in, it is full of "charm" but there are things you might miss if you are accustomed to full featured hotels. No TV but really...

This is a quaint, well appointed little gem. Spacious comfortable rooms and a great location close to the water and close to fisherman's wharf. Breakfast is included and was well prepared. The bed is comfortable and the rooms are quite. There is limited parking on site but up the street there is additional free parking if you a lucky
