Best Western Plus Victorian Inn

Monterey is consistently ranked as one of  the top family travel destinations, but as with any beach destination, lodging can get pricy.  On a recent trip to Monterey, I discovered the Best Western Plus Victorian Inn, an affordable family-friendly hotel near Cannery Row.  The Best Western Plus Victorian Inn is clean and comfortable, with spacious rooms and amenities to keep the whole family (and your wallet) happy.

The Best Western Plus Victorian Inn (a member of the Inns of Monterey) is a boutique-style hotel, located within walking distance of the heart of Cannery Row, where a multitude of family dining and entertainment options are available.  Originally a single family Victorian-style house, the Best Western Plus Victorian Inn was renovated to accommodate 70 guest rooms, while still maintaining its classic charm.  Complimentary breakfast and an afternoon wine and cheese reception are served daily in the parlor, an original part of the house, with beautiful antique furniture and lighting.

Room to Spread Out

One of my favorite features of the Best Western Plus Victorian Inn is the size of the rooms.  I stayed in a comfortable king room, with plenty of space to spread out.  The slanted wood slat ceilings make the rooms feel even bigger, and the room had a large closet and dresser, as well as a marble fireplace, two sitting chairs, night stand, desk area, flat screen tv, small refrigerator, coffee maker, and ample lighting.  The bathroom was spacious as well, with a corner sitting tub and duel shower. I had a peek at a few of the other rooms, and they were just as spacious.

A Few Tips

  • If you book early, you may find a 20% off advanced rate available when you book directly with the hotel.  The hotel also has family-friendly packages available, as well as packages for a romantic weekend for two.
  • Seating in the parlor can get crowded at breakfast, so grab your food and take it back to your room or eat in the garden courtyard.
  • The front desk staff is gracious and accommodating.  They have area maps available, can offer suggestions for dining, and will even help with reservations.
  • The Best Western Plus Victorian Inn is pet-friendly, so bring your furry family members too! (Fee applies)
