We stay at only expensive hotels but because we were paying for another couple we decided to stay at a "cheaper" hotel. This "cheaper" hotel was a surprise for us. This is our go to every time in Monterey from now on. SUPER nice staff, great breakfast, super comfy beds, great amenities and they even have a shower cap. Uber...

So happy that Ellen is the Manager! It's easy to see how much she cares about the Colton Inn and customer service. All the staff are very nice. Enjoyed our 2 night stay during the Half Marathon in November. We combined watching our daughter run the Half with a visit to Monterey. We had stayed at Colton's many times in...

Stayed a total of 3 nights with a large family group - with various family units coming and going at different times. The reservations were very tricky but Ellen figured everything out for us and our stay was amazing! The Inn was clean and very comfortable! I would highly recommend The Colton Inn!

The Colton Inn is a very good place to stay in Monterey. Location is good (walking distance to sea, harbour, pier and aquarium) and the price is quite good given that it is in California. The rooms are very nice and well equipped with fridge, coffee maker etc. The outside area (stairs, corridors) are a bit bleak and soulless. They...

This was our first time staying here and we weren't disappointed at all. Great location, very easy to get to/from, staff was absolutely wonderful, and the continental breakfast has very good selections which helps get the day off right. Our room was spacious (214) which is facing street side; a little noisy if you don't mind road traffic which we...

We chose this hotel for our three night stay in Monterey during our trip around California as we were looking for something more reasonable after paying high prices in San Francisco and Yosemite. However we were impressed by both the quality of the hotel and its location, just a short walk to the main shopping street with a good number...

The hotel was conveniently located. The staff was courteous and the rooms, although not "delux" were comfortable and clean. The breakfast of yogurt, pastries, fruit, cereals and beverages was more than adequate. Ask for the 2nd or 3rd floor away from the the parking lot. We actually were able to see little raccoons in the trees near our balcony. Cute....

This is A small hotel in a good location in Monterey. The rooms are adequate and come with a small refrigerator and microwave. Along with the room that hotel provides a continental breakfast that you pick up at the office and take back to your room with a tray. For Monterey this is good value and the convenient location.

I was really impressed. We chose this as a "budget" option but it really wasn't a budget experience. Great room, spacious and clean with in room amenities often lacking in big, chain hotels. Friendly and helpful staff too. Plenty of free parking too. I would definitely stay here again.

A fabulous hotel, lovely quiet location, short walk to shops, bars and restaurants. Breakfast is really good, both in choice and quality. The staff are very friendly and were incredibly helpful and kind to us as we arrived in a distressed state after an unfortunate incident. I would highly recommend this hotel and will return next time we visit Monterey.
