Positive Reviews

Prime position in Monterey

The Merritt House Inn's central location in Monterey was a highlight for many past guests. The hotel is a short walk from the popular Fisherman's Wharf, while other points of interest in the city - such as Dennis the Menace Park and Cannery Row - are in close proximity and not vehicle dependent.

Convenient and free parking

Despite the parking lot apparently being tight and tricky to maneuver, most that used the facility were thrilled that it was offered by the hotel. The off-street parking is judged as both convenient and safe.

Clean and charming rooms

Although the private bathrooms have generated criticism for being dated, the rooms at the Merritt House Inn were well received overall. The beds are said to be comfortable, the historic charm adds to the ambience and the cleanliness of the rooms - and the hotel in general - is regarded as exceptional.

Negative Reviews

Missing air conditioning

The omission of air conditioning is a common problem brought up about the rooms at the Merritt House Inn. Consequently, previous guests have reported that the rooms can get overly warm and stuffy.

Breakfast is restricted

Whilst some former visitors had no qualms about the continental breakfast, others found this to be one of the weakest aspects about the hotel. This is typically down to a supposedly limited selection of items available, while the breakfast room itself is considered somewhat cramped and uncomfortable.

Intermittent Wi-Fi connection

A number of past guests have claimed that the Wi-Fi at the Merritt House Inn is not the most reliable. Connecting to the Wi-Fi can seemingly prove to be tricky, especially for those in rooms on the upper level of the hotel.
