Lovely hotel , wish we had longer recommend this hotel without a doubt x
William, gb1 night family trip
Mariposa Inn & Suites
THIS IS A MOTEL - completely disappointed.
The problem with this place is what it is TRYING to be. As a motel, its fine - quite nice actually - but the fact is, the photos and descriptions are advertising it as a beautiful hotel and it is FAR from that. When we arrived, there was a guy walking round with a very loud leaf blower at 3 in the afternoon, with people sitting round the pool trying to relax. Our room was comfortable but upstairs and there was no elevator on the front part of the hotel. Nobody offered to help us with our luggage. The stairs were also dirty (see photos). We had no view and we went to complain, but the man at the front desk said that there was nothing they could do about it and that all the rooms were full (someone had just checked in when we walked back in and headed off to the rooms with a nicer view ...). He was rude and although he apologised, we called him out on it and said 'are you? because you don't look it' and he was totally unfazed by being challenged about his customer service. It is a real shame that we booked in here. We had a 'free night' voucher from to spend so only had to pay a little extra, but we really wish we had gone elsewhere. It's a joke that they charge so much for this place. We had looked forward to a really nice hotel after travelling around California, and were just hugely disappointed with what we ended up with. Also had to sit up by the pool with our breakfast as the room is way too small. I wouldn't stay again and wouldn't recommend it to anyone.

Well situated, comfortable 2 night stay
This was a comfortable 2 night stay and the hotel is well situated a mile & half from Cannery Row & 3 miles from Carmel. The breakfast was more than adequate for us and the Del Monte outdoor shopping mall across the road was a pleasant surprise for my 16 year old daughter!

Good comfortable inn for a short stay.
The inn is more dated than the photos show but the staff are friendly and our room was large, clean and comfortable. Quite a bit of choice at breakfast. The inn is located on a stretch with a number of affordable options set a driving distance away from the town centre.
