The surrounding area will have you think twice but don't judge a book by it's cover, very affordable! The location is a tiny bit outside the norm but it worked perfect for us. We had a few great walks (really not far at all) going into town and back. We walked over to the beer garden, a local coffee shop and a few places for wine tasting and even all the way down to Cannery Row. The next day we jumped in the car and drove the highway to Big Sur and 17 mile drive... perfectly located if you ask me. The staff is friendly and the fact that it's a family owned business always helps me decide where to go and who I give my business to. The sisters and brother that work there all go around greeting and checking you in and are always available with a smile on their face ... ready to talk and say high!! There is a charm to this place for sure. The sheets and bed probably are due for an upgrade, I will say they are not the typical thread-count you would get in most high end luxury hotels but again you aren't paying that price either.

As a former resident and bartender of Monterey I had always known about and recommended the Villa Franca inn to travelers and friends, but I had yet to have the pleasure of staying here until last week. I now live in Seattle and my friend and I decided on a last minute trip to my old stomping ground and we were lucky enough to get a room here so last minute! We experienced a lovely, very comfortable and welcoming stay. The team are so friendly and I will definitely be recommending and staying here again when I come back!
