We are still staying at Old Monterey Inn but everything has been so great didn't want to wait to write a review. We are staying in the Mayfield Suite. It is a very comfortable room. The owners are so accomodating and can't do enough for us. We arrived after check in so as directed we found our check in information where they said it would be.. We arrived in our suite to find soft music playing on a CD player and a "fire" burning in the fireplace (heater) When we emailed that we may be arriving late we were asked if we wanted to be served in our room or in the dining room. We had no idea room service was offered but we opted for it. Each morning 2 lovely trays arrived with probably the best breakfast's we have had at a B and B and we have stayed at quite a few in CA. (just know none of the food is for the diet conscious) Most B and B's that we have stayed in serve a different fritatta everyday here we have had pancakes, crepes blintz, and fresh fruit too. My husband's only complaint is that he likes bacon or sausage with breakfast (I am fine without it)so much food that it's way past dinner time before we are hungry again. There is a large living room with a computer with a printer (nice for printing boarding passes etc) This is where wine and cheese are served in the afternoon. There is also biscotti all the time and once we found wonderful chocolate chip cookies just off the dining room. We were using DSL in our room but Lawrence assured us that his wireless connection is very secure so now using that. Lawrence and Kathy are exceptional and when in this area again we will be back. We won't look further. Good choice. We are celebrating an anniversary so we received a nice box of chocolates. You will be very happy if you stay here!

Wow! The Old Monterey Inn was truly a little blessing in disguise. The scenery was breathtaking and worth every penny i must admit! We enjoyed the Whirlpool jacuzzi it was very romantic and a wonderful size. We also enjoyed the fire place and television. There were a few things however that i could have done without. I was a little disappointed in the size of the Chawton, online at the Old Monterey Inn website the room looks quite big and spacious however, when we got there it couldn't have been bigger than my bedroom. Another uncomfortable feature was the 12 am checkout.... We payed 300$ for one night and wouldve like to enjoy at least 24 hours in our room, instead we were rushed out of our room at noon and they even deactivated our television service at 11:45.....we could tell we werent very welcome and they wanted us out. Lastly, we were also woken up in the morning around 9 am by a leaf blower and lawn mowing crew right outside our door. I understand maintenance is key to the Inn, but they couldn't have waited until after noon? If you take away those minor things, the inn was surely one to return too! The coffee and breakfast was to die for and the service we received at the beginning of our checkin was flawless. We will most definitely be returning to the inn and everything is had to offer! Thank you again! (:

My husband and I recently stayed at The Old Monterrey Inn for 3 days. We loved it! It was our first time in a B&B. We enjoyed our very nice room, the fireplace, the very friendly and helpful staff and the wonderful daily breakfast. The gardens are very relaxing and beautiful. Katy and Lawrence, the innkeepers, made us feel like we were old friends, and made sure we enjoyed the Monterey and Carmel area and our stay at their great place.

I had a wonderful time at the Old Monterey Inn. It was such a charming place and the owners couldn't be nicer. I felt so pampered and comfortable there. It's a beautiful place with spectacular gardens. My room was perfect and breakfast was always great. Really classy and cozy.
