Area attractions include Cannery Row, made famous by writer John Steinbeck, the world-renown Monterey Bay Aquarium, Fisherman's Wharf, MY Museum (a children's museum), and downtown Monterey, as well as kayak, bicycle and rollerblade rentals and a 14-mile oceanfront recreation trail. All these attractions are within walking distance of all four "Inns of Monterey," and a 25-minute drive will take you to the National Steinbeck Center featuring interactive displays of some of Steinbeck's works. Children will be fascinated with and enriched by their visits to these places. A wide assortment of shops and restaurants, scenic vistas and historical walking tours round out Monterey's profile, creating an irresistible vacation destination. The Inns of Monterey (Hotel Pacific, Monterey Bay Inn, Victorian Inn and Spindrift Inn) are four small, unique hotels whose locations enable families to venture out each day on foot to take advantage of all Monterey's riches. Children are always welcome, and at the Victorian Inn, even the family dog may accompany you on your vacation, and will receive a special "Pooch Package" amenity at check-in: a logo-ed dog bowl with bottled water, dog cookies, and a postcard to send to one of their furry friends. (Families wishing to stay at Spindrift Inn should reserve rooms well in advance, as there are only two rooms on property that can accommodate more than two guests.) All four properties feature rooms with TV's and VCR's, and video rental machines at each site save a trip to the local video shop. Mini-refrigerators in all guest rooms can be used to keep children's favorite foods and drinks cold and fresh. Complimentary continental breakfast is served at all locations: this convenience builds savings right into your vacation budget. Spindrift Inn offers valet parking; the other properties provide guests with complimentary parking.
