She is friendly and helpful and accommodating. We love the tall ceilings and large rooms compared to some of the expensive hotels in downtown Monterey. There is even a pool and a nice garden area for families to sit relax after a long day of being a tourist.” – Peggy W.

“Great place, nice rooms, clean, quiet!” – Annita D.

The Weather

Monterey county is one of California’s most scenic destinations throughout the entire year, but the region really comes alive in the fall. Visitors can experience the gorgeous 70 degree Fahrenheit weather and soak in all of natures beauty by cycling, hiking, paddle boarding, or kayaking.

The Monarch Butterflies

If you want to witness a display of nature that’s truly breathtaking, October is the time to head over to Monterey. Monarch butterflies flock to The Monarch Sanctuary in beautiful downtown Pacific Grove during this time and the clusters they create are extraordinary.

The Recreational Events

There were already plenty of autumn events worthwhile (Monterey Jazz Festival, California International Airshow, Monterey Beach Sportsfest, to name a few), but November will be just as fun! The Carmel International Film Festival is from October 18 to 20. And for all the foodies out there, the Big Sur Food and Wine Festival is happening from November 2 to 7. Plus, we can’t forget to mention all the spooky Halloween fun in the area as well.
