            Individual guest reviews

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              Helpful staff that upgraded our rooms for free

              Slightly outdated interior and exterior; small and crowded breakfast bar with no obvious room to sit down (there is a room, but well hidden)

            • Family with children
              4.4

              There isn't much great to say about our experience. The desk staff is slow, unorganized, and struggles. Everyone checking in at the time we were had issues from lost reservations, to mis- quoted prices. Our reservation wAsn't even in their system. By the time we spent 45 minutes checking in we were frustrated and nearly missed our dinner reservation. The next morning we left our room at 7 am and returned at 6pm to discover our room had not been cleaned and the housekeeping staff had gone home. The continental breakfast consisted of hard boiled eggs and packaged pastry. This hotel is over priced and poorly staffed.

            • Older travelers

              The motel is located within 1 - 2 miles of the scenic Pacific Grove coast line and 17-mile Pebble Beach Drive.

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              This was beautifully located in Pacific Grove, quietly away from the bustle and noise of Cannery Row, but very close to everything that Monterey offers. It was exceptionally quiet, reasonable, friendly, and close to good local spots to eat. Just wish the little coffee pot in the room had worked! Loved the fireplace and log...we will be back.

            • Older travelers
              7.4

              Close to the 17 mile drive to biycle Close to Monterey Bay Aquarium / restaurants / shops Closes to Carmel restaurants / shops Quiet convenience

              Noisey exhaust vent in bathroom - needed replacing

            • Older travelers
              8.0

              Location and price were the two biggest reasons for our stay. Hotel staff was nice and very receptive to our requests.

              Housekeeping needs to be improved. I had to ask for towels on one occasions when the housekeeper neglected to leave them when the room was cleaned. Also had to inform the front desk the parking area trashcan hadn't been emptied and was overflowing for three days. All deficiencies were quickly corrected.

            • Family with children
              9.2

              There were not many people staying at the hotel so it was quiet.

              There were no refrigerators in the rooms.

            • Family with children
              5.0

              Staff would leave you alone.

              Carpet Smell, beds smaller than a queen size

            • Older travelers
              6.6

              Front office staff. Pool and spa.

              No Computer for guest use. Only hotel we stayed at that did not have this. Some maintenance items need looking into - broken doors, dirty areas.

            • Older travelers
              5.4

              location

              our keys didn't work twice, it was said it had wireless internet and it didn't, we had to get a cable, it was noisy, we could hear the people above us take a shower, flush the toilet, wlak, etc, kleenex ran out and they didn't replace it, they only gave us decaf coffee, the bed was not comfortable, only had one blanket and the bedspread was slippery and kept slipping off the bed so we were cold

            • Couple
              5.4

              the pool, spa, and in room fireplace.

              The noise levels from the plumbing. When other guests used the plumbing, it was unusually loud. Shower drains would clog and a soap dish detached from the shower wall.

            • Family with children
              2.8

              We had a horrible experience during this trip, first of all we were treated badly by Dianne who called us from the free way, we were given a smoking room and the kids and myself all got very asthmatic, Laurie was very rude, another front desk member gave us a room without a fire place for $120.00 but we were still charged $550.00 for two nights instead of $340.00. My kids with special needs were struggling to breathe!! What a nightmare....I Am not sure where to start, but this is no RESORT...oh my God. Are you folks struggling for money??

              Nothing, what a difficult time we had....

            • Older travelers
              10.0

              Great location for exploring Pacific Grove and Monterey in a quiet residential area, lots of parking, large, clean & quiet rooms, good complimentary breakfast to start your day, complimentary internet. Would definitely stay again

            • Group of friends
              3.2

              The convienence and proximity to Monterey attractions.

              Outdated hotel, needs remodel and renovation terribly-continental breakfast was sub-par at best and the 'upgrade' to room with balcony and fireplace wa hardly worth the extra $30 for the two night stay. The only reason this hotel is even on the map is it's location but the rates are sky-rocket high and not worth the price of admission. We only stayed here because everywhere else was booked.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Good location. Our room had a view of the ocean. Bedrooms are large and comfortable. No bad surprise: clean and welcoming.

              Continental breakfast is served in a very small room. Coffee was lukewarm. So, we went out for a decent breakfast somewhere else.
