A fantastic and comfortable place with amazing views. The bed was probably the softest I've ever been in and it was so quiet that it was almost unnerving for us as parents of three kids used to const...ant noise. And the view of the entire Monterey Bay (including actually being able to make out a building in Moss Landing) from our room was astounding.

The only complaint I have (a small one) is that the breakfast didn't include meat (some sausage, bacon or ham would have been nice), but would say that it was otherwise tasty and filling.

One additional non-complaint point: I have seen that of the few negative reviews, they mostly centered on the idea that this is an older place. It is an antique structure that dates well back and faces the humid, salty ocean air. But it is clean and well tended, much like a tidy antique table. If you're looking for ultra-modern chic, this place isn't for you and you should look elsewhere. But if you can appreciate a gorgeous set of structures in a place of pristine beauty that caters to comfort, peace, and customer service you can't do any better than this.

This place is a hidden treasure in a great location and view of the ocean all the while feeling like you were in the mountains. Our room was just amazing with a private courtyard and Jaccuzi, not to m...ention it is in walking disstence into town maybe 10-15 minutes. Last of all the staff is extremely friendly and looking forward to another visit. See More

Beautiful place to stay very romantic. Great ocean views, friendly staff, and nice breakfast. Walking distance to the village and beach. We are already planning our next trip here.

Beautiful extra clean with a great view. The hotel was built in 1920's and each room is unique.I think the people complaining about cleaning don't realize how old the Inn is. My room was immaculate. ...They cleaned every day. Lilac room is gorgeous, Ocean mist suite is great too. See More

Hard to find, building itself could use an update, I know it's a historic building, but it could look better. I was pleasantly surprised to see the room itself, nice room and great staff. Better than... I would have thought seeing the outside. I would recommend it, beautiful views from the cliff and grounds. See More

My wife and I just celebrated our 10th anniversary. This was our last stop on a week long trip that began in Phoenix, continued in Boulder City and Vegas, a visit to the Golden Gate and Sausalito, fin...ishing here. We absolutely loved the place. The view is spectacular, our suite was perfect for our getaway. The continental breakfast delivered to the suite each morning at the exact time we arranged. We had an early flight out on Wednesday, they dropped off breakfast the night before. The customer service was great. My only complaint is that it's 3000 miles away and we can't return every year.

We , The Tol's just had " Our Best Day Ever Wedding" there June 25, 2017. The views are amazing, staff friendly, and breakfast GREAT! We can't thank you enough MCI !!
So quiet in our room, we can hear... the ocean, see it , hear the birds and enjoy each other, before our honeymoon in a week. It was a No brainer for us when getting the tour. I would highly recommend also Five star catering, if planning a wedding or event, the food off the charts!
XO to everyone there for making our dreams of the "Perfect Wedding" come true!

Have stayed here several times, this is my first 3 star stay. Room wasn't clean, loud neighbors and people using our private hot tub. No compensation when I reported my issues to management. Views are... gorgeous, but service should be better, for the high price tag. See More

Beautiful place with wonderful views, up the street from the beach and great restaurants and shops. Good service, staff is friendly and breakfast was nice. Great hot showers, nice and quiet and privat...e. The only reason I can't give it 5 stars is the bed was hard, not firm, but hard. Like lying on the floor hard. I would encourage the inn to get some soft pillow tops to go on the mattresses, or new mattresses. See More

This was a perfect getaway for relaxation and rejuvenation. Even though we were there on a rainy day, it only made the ambiance of the Hideaway Suite that much more cozy. The room was clean and comfor...table, and the private patio and hot tub gazebo took the experience to the next level. We even scored a deal on the room through a special found on the website. We will definitely be back! See More

I was there as a guest for a event for the amount of money they charge you think they would maintain the property alot more better then they do! #1. Bathrooms for guest are way to far. I'm fine I'm st...ill young but for Elderly and Hadicap its NOT good! They need to build a set of bathrooms near event Area..#2 the Deck were events are held is a Law Suit waiting to happen! The Deck has loose boards, holes, and boards to far apart women wear heels getting stuck or People tripping.. #3 All bulidings need a power wash and a good painting. Seriously..This place is Not being Maintained, Very Sad ! The views are amazing only reason I gave 2 stars! See More

My husband and I have stayed there several times (in several different rooms) over the span of 14 years, and it has been exceptional every time. My husband even proposed to me right there on the la...wn overlooking the ocean 12 years ago! Could not be more highly recommended by me! See More
