The first stop in Monterey for those traveling by train from San Francisco was the Del Monte station located between the bay and Hotel Del Monte. Only those passengers who were guests of the hotel detrained there. The foundation of this depot is still visible today in front of the (old) Hotel Del Monte, which is now used by the United States Navy as a part of the Naval Postgraduate School.

The other passengers continued past the freight warehouse to the Monterey passenger depot, which was the terminus for those arriving in Monterey. Its location provided a spectacular view of the bay and convenient access to the downtown area. The appearance of the freight warehouse and passenger depot buildings has been altered by renovations done over the years. However, the history that these buildings represents remains in their classic design origins.

These depots are important to Monterey's past. The passenger depot represents the growth of tourism and local population, while the freight depot signifies merchants and industry.
