The Martine Inn is a charming B & B with a dining room offering great bay views to enjoy while eating a full, home-cooked breakfast. We had the Art Deco room, and it was sweet. Every room has a theme. Free fresh fruit is available 24/7, cookies or brownies in the lobby in the evening, and wine and cheese in...

Road trip from Las Vegas to San Francisco 25 year old couple from the UK Wifi: Very good We had a spectacular drive up to Pacific Grove, home of the Martine Inn.

Thank you for your review. We did not want to have our parking area look like a big paved area so we installed a reinforced lawn to park on. Now with the drought we can no longer water the lawn and its appearance leaves much to be desired.

The Martine Inn is elegant and beautiful. I had a unique gorgeous room with a real wood burning fireplace, canopy king size bed, real antique furniture, windows that open. Free Wi-Fi and parking. Stunning views. Quiet, and peaceful. Delicious food, awesome staff, fantastic location. I had a wonderful time and can't wait to come back! They even give you a...

A lovely Victorian mansion on the appropriately-named Ocean View Boulevard. To be able to sit in the dining room and look out on the view of the ocean (the hotel even provides binoculars) and watch the whales, seals and sea otters was a sheer delight. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly and Don Martine, the owner, introduced himself and...

This is an absolutely lovely Victorian mansion by the sea. It's family run and every detail is lovingly attended to. We were treated like royalty. We saw whales from our breakfast table! The location is excellent. I would suggest this for vacationers and romantic travelers.

We have been seeing whales daily from our parlor lately. The Monterey Bay is rich with sea food this year and some restaurants are even serving fresh barbecued sardines. You can see some great whale photos shot from the Martine Inn on our Facebook page. Thanks for your review.

Wow! The Martine was little more expensive than I was looking for, and my sister and I stayed in the cheapest room, The Monterey Room. But it was ABSOLUTELY worth it and I will be returning. Most websites talk up their accommodations, but Martine exceeded all expectations. It is within walking distance of Cannery Row and the Aquarium but is...

We stayed here as an alternative to our usual favorite, The Intercontinental Hotel. So you have to understand this review in that context. While the general outdoor appearance of the house is not very impressive, inside, it is a quaint Victorian style Inn with commanding Pacific views. The staff is so friendly and accommodating, the food is excellent, likely the...
