We are so very lucky to live on the Central Coast in California.  The summers are warm, yet cool by the ocean, and the lanscape is just fabulous.  Heading to Monterey for the weekend, you can walk on the wharf, shop on Cannery Row, visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and at the end of the day,  relax in your hotel room.  If you are bringing your children with you on your trip, you must stay at the Best Western Victorian Inn on Foam Street!!  On a recent trip, our family enjoyed this boutique hotel with it’s focus on quiet-comfort and added money-saving benefits.PhotobucketLocated just two blocks from the famous Cannery Row, their underground garage will host your car while you can walk to food, drinks, beach, Ghirardelli, Bubba Gumps, or shopping!

We were thrilled to learn they offer a family suite in the hotel.  Five of us in a standard room gets crowded quickly.  The family suite offers a master bedroom/bathroom separated by a door into the living room (pull out double bed), kitchenette, and patio.  The kitchenette is great when you want to bring snacks like popcorn or microwave meals to cut costs on your trip.  There’s silverware, plates, and bowls available as well.  There’s a television is a beautiful armoir for the kids to enjoy their show, as well as a fireplace for cozy evenings.

The master was amazing!  A second patio, second fireplace, second television and mini-bar (added fee) make this space perfect for parents.  Two club chairs are great for reading while anyone needing to do some business can sit at the desk and use wireless or wired internet access.  The king bed was very comfortable, and if you have a little one like us…3 fit in this bed if need be ;). The bathroom is split into two rooms, one hosts the toilet, shower/tub, and a sink, while just outside that door there is a vanity area for multiple people to get ready at once.

Room service is available, but if you’d like to enjoy local wines without the big price tag, the Victorian offers complimentary nightly cocktail receptions in the parlor.  Ventana Vineyards wines in red and white are featured, as is cheese, crackers, and grapes with coffee, tea, and lemonade.  My husband and I enjoyed the Ventana Chardonnay, it was very good!  If you are looking for a great dinner out, in the parlor you’ll find an enormous book of menus for many great local (Carmel, Pacific Grove, and Monterey) restaurants.

Because you walked all around Monterey, you’ll be ready for the hot tub located in the garden area of the hotel.  Sunken down a bit and surrounded by walls to block the wind, parents or couples can wind down. My oldest daughter and I dipped our feet and it was hot and soothing after a long day walking through the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

Wake up in the morning and enjoy the continental breakfast included in your room fee. Delicious fruits, muffins, cereals, waffles, juice and coffee fill you up and keep more money in your pocket!

Thank you to the staff, who were always helpful and friendly. The hotel is clean, the area it’s located in is beautiful, there is much attention to detail and we will stay there again when we want a getaway that has all-inclusive accommodations. Next time, a couple’s weekend!
