The Mariposa Suites is right across the street from the very pet friendly Del Monte Shopping Center, with Whole Foods, and there are even stores that allow pets such as Border Express, they rock, and the Apple store. Not only was Cici allowed but greeted and welcomed most places and even took a snooze or two on the comfy outside couches when the sun was warm.
Mariposa is a luxury boutique hotel that is affordable. It has 50 elegant rooms and hotel suites, a lovely orange lobby, with comfortable chairs and a chandelier. It is a very nice upscale property with swimming pool, king size bed suites (where we stayed), with couch, desk for computer, two televisions, lovely chair for desk and fireplace (gas), gorgeous view of swimming pool area… smoke free property and eco friendly, with THE very best spa bath products … body butter, body wash, shampoo and conditioner …
there is a very nice grassy area to walk pooches… so far, they do not offer any pet amenities but are working on getting some.
The place is amazingly quiet, very very quiet…considering the location, on the corner of a very busy street.
All of the rooms are pet friendly and we stayed on the second floor, up the elevator…
They offer a delicious breakfast buffet filled with different types of danishes, muffins, breads, waffles, yogurts, fresh fruits and more plus the hot coffee, tea and hot chocolate.
Mariposa also offers some wonderful packages including the Monterey Bay Aquarium package and others.
The beaches in Monterey are pet friendly, dogs are supposed to be on leashes but they tend to run free.
There are several wineries in the area but do not yet know if they are dog friendly.
The Monarch butterflies and Gray whales are fun attractions at various times of the year.
