Spent two nights in March, 2017 at Colton Inn in Monterey on a whale watching trip. The Inn was off the main roadway and within walking distance (about a mile to a mile and a half) of the wharf. The room was very clean and furnished with normal amenities - fridge, microwave, TV, hairdryer, Kurig coffeemaker, and ironing board,etc. Our...

This establishment has greatly exceeded our expectations! The staff is top notch and is happy to help with your every need. The rooms are comfortable and the amenities really make you feel at home. We really didn't expect to have a Keurig/K-cup coffee station, fireplace and a creek view (pretty relaxing to listen to in bed) for the price we...

Our family stayed one night in two rooms in transit here and we enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were clean & spacious. The motel is in a good location. The reception staff were friendly. I'd definitely stay here again.

My wife and I stayed at Colton Inn on Feb 4, 2017 during a pleasure trip to Monterey. We found the Colton Inn to be clean and located convenient to Cannery Row. The staff was friendly and helpful with dinner suggestions. We also purchased aquarium tickets at the hotel desk, which made the aquarium visit easier.

A very warm welcome when we checked in and plenty of advice & tips given to us as 1st time visitors to Monterey. A lovely room on the 1st floor with oodles of space and a nice big, comfortable bed. Small but "efficient" breakfast and a quick and efficient check out. We have no problem in recommending the Colton Inn.

This is our second stay at the Colton inn. Our first was a year ago and we stayed in a fairly nice balcony room with a fireplace. This year we decided to return and booked the family suite (three queen beds in a room) as our kids are getting older and have most definitely outgrown all sleeping in a double...

Hi Jeanette, I'm glad you found your way back to us, thank you for your recommendation. It was so much fun for us to host "breakfast in the evening" for the runners. Everybody loved it so we're going to do it again next year. We will also do the same for the full marathon that is held annually in April....
