The number one thing in this motel's favor is that you can walk from here to Cannery Row in 5-10 minutes. The breakfast they offer is pretty good and complete, not the "Continental Breakfast" that's referred to in the information binder. Wi-Fi is not secure, so that's a drawback. Room is clean. Television is in a very odd location so...

The location of this property is great. You can walk to Cannery Row and Aquarium. The room was very nice and real clean. They had a bottle of wine for my birthday when we arrived which was really nice. Staff was super freindly

For our first ever Christmas away from home, we made the perfect choice with the BW Victorian Inn. The rooms are huge and homey and the gas fireplace was just the right touch. There were 6 of us and the rooms were big enough for us to open our presents and play games in one comfy room together! The staff...

The hotel is very nice and the employees are very accommodating. The rooms on the second and third floors are the best place to stay. Both have slight views of the ocean. The hotel is very close to Cannery Row and a short walk to the Wharf.

This hotel in Monterey was wonderful. It is within walking district of the Monterey Aquarium, Cannery Row, and dozens of restaurants. We parked our car in the parking garage when we arrived and never needed again until with left four days later. Our room was very comfortable and everyone working at the hotel was very pleasant and helpful. Every morning...

TA reviewers helped us narrow down our choices for our one-night stay in Monterey – and hotel reps who answered the phone (and all my questions) clinched it! In between all the sightseeing (and eating) in the area, we enjoyed our King Premier Room located towards the rear of the property (but view from the balcony overlooks Foam). The room...

This hotel is so amazing! It's located in a great area in Monterey, walking distance to a few great restaurants, The Sardine Factory to be one, a nice movie theater and the beautiful Monterey Bay Aquarium. We love staying here and we always request the same room. If anyone decides to book a reservation at this hotel, I highly recommend...

My review is of the rooms located on third floor, which are quiet and large. Accommodations are superb, which is reflected by the staffs attention to detail, bathroom's are clean and even the grouting clean and professionally done. Little things are right and it reflects the rest of facility.
