Just a two hour drive south from San Francisco is the ideal location for the relaxing fall getaway you so richly deserve. If you like playing golf on championship level courses, tasting fine wines, eating at gourmet restaurants, attending fun festivals or exploring the natural beauty of the California coast, then Monterey is the place for you. And the best place to stay in Monterey to experience all of these iconic activities is Old Monterey Inn. Not only are the rooms luxurious and comfortable, but the expansive gardens and quiet neighborhood surrounding our Inn provide for a secluded and private feel, yet we’re just steps from restaurants and shopping. It’s a wonderful home base for exploring Monterey, Carmel and the Big Sur coastline.

Go Wine Tasting Near Monterey

Wine Enthusiast Magazine has named Monterey as one of the “10 Best Wine Travel Destinations in the World” for good reason. We are home to over 55 tasting rooms and distinctly different wine growing regions. For a tasting tour that requires little planning, just hop on the Wine Trolley, they’ll pick you up just one mile from the Inn. The Carmel Valley offers a classic wine tasting experience with country roads to explore in between stops, while Carmel-by-the-Sea has several tasting rooms within walking distance of each other so you can sip, and then stroll. Or you can get the VIP treatment and take advantage of our Chauffeured Wine Tour Package! No matter which you chose, be sure you buy a bottle to enjoy at dinner that pairs well with our area’s fresh seafood and incredible local produce.
