The Old Monterey Inn.....

We stayed at the Old Monterey Inn for our anniversary. It was amazing! Not only did they upgrade us to the nicest lil room, but the inn is just so romantic. Click the picture below to visit their website. Oh, and check TripAdvisor. They always get great reviews. It's no surprise why.




The Inn was a lovely Tudor house built in the 1920s that was later converted to a B & B. It's sprawling gardens and proximity to downtown Monterey add to the Inn's charm.


Guests can eat in the formal dining room, the gardens or in your room by the fireplace.


They really go the extra mile. There's always goodies available from sherry and cookies to a wine and cheese reception from 5-7 in the parlor.


We strolled around the gardens after checking into our room.


We stayed in the Garden Cottage. It had a two person jetted tub, which was absolutely lovely! And they give you great lavender soaps. Love the mural!


The inn features large feather beds, which accounted for a great night of sleep. They give you a robe and slippers too. Next to the bed was a window seat where you could sit and look down into the gardens.

I love Montery. We use to line in Hollister and would go visit Montery often. Really pretty there.
