    My then fiance and I chose Old Monterey Inn to have our wedding while we were checking out venues in the area. We knew we were going to get married in Monterey or Carmel and the inn looked exactly perfect for us considering the beautiful garden setting, enough space for 45 guests, the fact that we could get all the rooms for our guests the night before and the night of the wedding. The icing on the cake was meeting with the innkeeper Wendy. She was extremely friendly and genuinely keen to make sure we got all the help and support we needed for setting up the inn for the wedding, even gave us excellent tips on what our wedding flow could be based on the layout of the inn and garden. She was also reachable by phone and email which was particularly critical in the weeks leading up to the wedding. Ultimately we made great use of the unusual layout of the inn by using the lush green lawn for our ceremony and lawn party, the garden area for lunch and the driveway area for dancing.

    Oh and the rooms were simply gorgeous, the photos on the website will give some idea. They also give a little box of chocolates tied with a ribbon on the room. Oh and there is wine and cheese for guests in the afternoons, and breakfast in the morning which can be served to you in the garden.

    Unforgettable experience, the two of us will definitely come here again and stay to relive the memories of this amazing day of our lives :)

    The most amazing and quaint Bed and Breakfast. The owners are so wonderful and they care so much about your stay and personalizing everything for you. I stayed in the cottage which is separate from the rest of the beautiful home, it's apart of the wedding package. The night before my mom and I stayed in the cottage and then my husband and I stayed in the cottage on our wedding night. It was so romantic and secluded we felt like we were away and not bothered by anyone or thing. It was the perfect escape. The gardens are ravishing and the ceremony garden is like a wonderland. ABSOLUTELY AMAZING! even if you don't want your ceremony there you should stay there :D I had a small wedding and you are able to book the whole house for your guests and so it is just you and your guests they have amazing deals and they help so much!

    This was the perfect place for our January 2014 wedding! Katy and Lawrence were extremely easy to work with and made the whole planning process stress-free! Their contract was straighforward and reasonable. The rooms at OMI are impeccable--clean, gorgeous down to the last detail, and very relaxing. The surrounding property is even better--once we saw it in person we knew it was the perfect wedding venue for us and we looked no further. We booked all of the rooms so that we'd feel like we had the place to ourselves and so our guests could stay with us for the whole weekend. I highly recommend doing this. Upon checking in, we felt like royalty! There was a wine and cheese hour, a friendly note in our room welcoming our wedding party, and amazingly friendly staff! On the day of the wedding, we had a wonderful breakfast and felt like all of the staff was there for us, but not in the way at all. It truly felt like we were at home. We had the ceremony on the big lawn and it was beautiful--we felt tucked away from everything, yet it was close enough for us all to walk to our reception restaurant in downtown Monterey (we chose not to have our reception at OMI so that we could be loud late and not worry about disturbing neighbors). Upon returning from our reception, my new husband and I loved being able to relax in the Cottage Room and take advantage of the spa tub--this was one of our favorite wedding memories. While OMI rooms are definitely not cheap, they are more than worth the splurge. Everything considered (customer service, look of venue, location, amenities, price, etc.), the Old Monterey Inn is simply THE perfect wedding venue in Monterey! I highly recommend!
