My wife, our 2 year old twins, and I were in California for Thanksgiving and I decided that since we're in California, I wanted to introduce my kids and wife to an amazing aquarium and a city that has been very dear to my heart. I found the Mariposa on TripAdvisor and saw the great reviews, and when I read... More

Mariposa Inn & Suites is very close to the shopping mall for those who are interested in that stuff. For me, it was a good base to visit nearby sightseeing, such as Point Lobos reserve and the Monterey Aquarium. The rooms were decent, great shower and it had a fireplace. The complimentary breakfast was a time and money saver as... More

The staff here are very nice and the location is good but noisy. The room stinks however... it reeked of bleach when I checked in so I suspected something was trying to be covered up. When I checked out the next day the smell was unbearable.. I do not know what it is but it was disgusting. Also-- vinyl plank... More

I'd call this a 3 star quality Inn, but it's better than your average place. The rooms are nice with gas fireplace, air conditioning, mini fridge and microwave. They have a nice patio by the pool and an outdoor hot tub. It's about a 20 minute walk into town or Uber for about $7, which I'd recommend because parking is... More

Stopped in for the night after a long day of driving up the PCH. Overall room was big and nice. Good breakfast included, friendly staff. Ample parking. There is a pool and hot tub on site as well, which I didn't get a chance to use since we got there late and it closes at 10. Only issues we had... More

Great location - walking distance to Del Monte Center, and short drive to golf courses, downtown, and ocean. There were no issues parking. The check-in was quick and friendly. The elevator worked and smelled clean. Our room was 2 bed (1 King and 1 Murphy), 2 story, 2 bathroom - just beautiful! It was clean, cozy, and relaxing. Outside there... More

We stayed here for 2 nights. The only positive thing for hotel is the location. It's closed to wharf and De Monte center. Other things are terrible. The room design is so weird, with a big glass on the celling, which make a room entire sunlight at day time. We can't not sleep at all. The room is hot though... More

Bad points - one of the staff on reception (lady with large tattoo on her arm) was extremely rude and unwelcoming (the other lady was lovely), the entrance and bathroom floors were very slippery - we had to put towels down, we were next to the outside door...
