"Great stay"
Great place to stay. We were there for only 1 night but it was a great location (just 5 minutes walk to the Wharf). We had a great room on 3rd floor overlooking the creek and the fireplace was a nice treat in Fall. Loved the evening cookies and hot chocolate. Short drive to aquarium and Cannery Row.

"Close to the wharf"
This hotel is not anything to write home about. It really didn't feel any different than stay at a motel 6, except the size of the room was bigger. The thing best about this hotel is that it's within walking distance to the wharf & because everything in Monterey is paid parking with a 2 hour time limit this is a very nice feature.

"Nice hotel close to old town Monterey."
Arrived at 930 pm and the clerk was very nice and welcoming. There were fruit and cookies and hot water for tea. My room had a fireplace which made it feel nice and cosy. The building is old and not plush like Marriott, but I was there for a conference and didn't need fancy.Just needed a convenient and inexpensive place to sleep. Liked that the price was half of Marriott or Portola and parking was free. Room had a microwave and fridge too. Unfortunately the cable box was a bit c of using so I didn't get to see the local news before I fell asleep.

"Not worth it..."
I don't know how this was rated as "excellent". My bed was hard, the pillows were old and lumpy, and my thermostat didn't really work properly. The guy at the front desk was nice, and promptly came to the room to tey to fix the thermostat. Unfortunately, he failed to tell me how to turn on the shower (trust me - it's anything but intuitive and i've stayed in hotels all over the world)...

"Nice hotel"
Our stay at the Colton Inn was very enjoyable. The location was great - quiet and a reasonable walk from restaurants and the wharf area. The staff was friendly and helpful. The furniture was somewhat dated but beds were comfy, and the bathroom appeared to be recently remodeled with new tile and sinks. Only drawback was no AC or ceiling fans but the room had plenty of windows and the nights were pleasantly cool even during an unusual heat wave. I would definitely recommend to others.

"Not a luxury hotel, but a good choice"
In Monterey there are so many things to do and places to see that there is little need for a lot of amenities. If it is a spa, fine dining, room service hat you need then this is not the place for you. They have none of those. If you want a clean room, conveniently located, free parking and a friendly helpful staff then the Colton Inn is the place.

I usually like to stay closer to where I am visiting, but this hotel was very nicely located within the city. The hotel is an older building (no a/c) but they keep it up nicely. The breakfast is a nice spread, and they have munchies available in the evening. I would definitely come back!

Nice room on ground floor, but, on main guest terrace, near reception, and only ventilation was from sliding doors. Not great for security to leave door open at night to get fresh air, so, stifled and slept very poorly. Asked for another room, but, none available and told no hotels in Monterey ave air conditoning.

"Nice Hotel a few blocks from anything in Monterey!"
My room at the Colton Inn was clean and comfortable. My room was on the outside corner and so I had a little more noise than I would have liked. There is a large patio with tables and umbrellas so you can eat your continental breakfast or bring in a meal to eat. Or, you can sit outside to enjoy the wonderful trees and feel the breeze on your face! The staff was very helpful and pleasant to the guests. If you're looking for a full-service hotel, this would not be your choice as there is no restaurant. The Colton Inn is located just a few blocks from the business area of Monterey. There is a wonderful choice of restaurants of all price ranges and many ethnicities. Check-in and check out were easily accomplished. Bottom line, if you're expecting the Ritz, please check in at one. If you'd like to stay at a nice little hotel for a more reasonable rate, I think you'll be happy at The Colton Inn.

"Average but costly"
Room was an attempt to update an old motor inn. Room was clean, but TV did not work upon check in. Front desk clerk condescendingly told me I was using remotes wrong, even though there was sound, no picture, and lines running down the middle of the screen. 15 minutes later a maintenance man came and checked the TV out, left and returned with another. Had to help him hook it up. Not a completely terrible experience but for the money I will stay another place next time. Very firm bed, if that is what you like. Close to all the things to do in Monterey, which is nice.

"Clean but outdated furniture and appliances."
Please print that this property don't have any AC. The patio door was left open to get some air flow the whole 24 hrs. Bad during the day when hot and humid. Ceiling fan is located in the corner of the room and not by the beds????? Breakfast could be better. Coffee run out and have to wait to get some caffeine. Some breads were kind of stale. Had breakfast someplace else. Won't stay at this hotel again or recommend to anybody.

nice little motel in Monterey. Walking distance to Peet's and Trader Joe's and a variety of restaurants. Always had good quality, fresh fruit available. Cookies in the evening. Breakfast was spartan, but not unexpected. If bagels,cereal and fruit works for you, hooray! Very comfortable mattress. Large room. Right by a fire station, which was busy on a holiday weekend. woken by the siren a few times.Parking a little tight for a large SUV, but spaces always available out front so not a problem. I'd stay here again.

"Not Worth the High Ratings"
My husband and I saw high ratings for this hotel so we chose to stay there for our anniversary weekend. The location wasn't within walking distance of Cannery Row as it says. But it is a short and easy drive. The location is nice in that it's away from the hussle and bustle of the tourist area. However, it's across the street from a fire station! Luckily they never ran their sirens, but just the sounds from the station were loud. And there was construction at the hotel. The bed was the worst part. I still have a crick in my neck. It was very hard. The mattress was like a trampoline. Any time one of us moved the other person got bounced around. We got very little sleep. Whenever someone ran water in their room it sounded like a fog horn, minus a few decimals. The staff was friendly. The rooms were very clean. It was fairly inexpensive for the area.

"Good price, but run down"
We chose this location for our one night stay because we could easily walk to the Free Trolley and visit the Aquarium and Wharf. Our room was large but outdated. The carpet outside of the bathroom was wet (we notified the front desk and their response was that they would note our account). Not too impressed with that, but we didn't want to spend time switching rooms. The reason the floor was wet became obvious when we used the shower - note the shower head was at about 5 feet so we had to duck. Water sprayed everywhere. We had a view of the trees and saw a deer sleeping outside of our window. Not a bad stay, just wouldn't choose it if I had other options in the same price range. Breakfast was meager. Again, the price and location were right, but I did not have a luxurious experience. Manage your expectations if booking here.

"Good place to stay in Monterey, reasonable rates"
We stayed 2 nights at Colton Inn. We arrived to a frazzled desk manager who was trying to handle a disaster in one of the rooms due to a careless guest that made the 2 rooms inhabitable. The check-in line grew as we waited, but everyone was patient given the circumstances. The result: we were upgraded to the Honeymoon Suite with its own jacuzzi! Aside from our room being situated between the breakfast patio and the laundry room (HA!), it was quiet and comfortable when it needed to be. The front office offered a free continental breakfast and had free coffee, tea, fruit and snacks during the day. The staff was friendly and helpful. We could see where the place could use a few upgrades to fixtures, but it didn't detract from our visit.

"Quiet cozy inn"
We had a fantastic time at the Colton Inn. It was close to all of the main attractions but far enough away to feel private and relaxing. I particularly enjoyed the area it was located in--a neighborhood that had all of the comforts of home close-by: a pharmacy, a Peets coffee, and a bookstore! The perfect getaway weekend. Another plus? No perfumey air-freshners or detergents in the room, just the smell of wood and wilderness. If you have allergies to scents or perfumes, this is the perfect hotel for you!

Had a relative visiting Cali for first time wanted to do a lot in the Monterey area and the Colton Inn seemed like a good location good price & offered non-smoking rooms. Hotel is a bit older but clean. Wow rooms had NO cigarette odors! & no-smoking signs were posted around that area :-) fantastic! The Manager & staff were friendly & professional. Continental breakfast was nice. I read the last several reviews which helped me decide on the Colton Inn. Reviews are very important that's why I'm writing mine. I'd recommend the Colton Inn.

The value that you get for the price you pay is great. The rooms are VERY spacious. However, the walls are incredibly thin. You can hear EVERYTHING in the rooms above or surrounding you. Also, the warm water runs out when others are using it. It felt like staying in an old apartment building. The staff was very friendly but I wouldn't necessarily consider staying here again.

I gave staff a just OK review because apparently the manager was having a bad weekend and took it out on staff, one behind the counter and one over the phone and a little short with a guest calling in, sure I do not know the whole story but his criticism could have been done alone or at least while guests were not able to listen. Other than that a nice place.
