    The hotel is fine--the bed eequal to being on the floor. Unable to sleep it was so hard.

    The bed. (pretty basic)

    a very nice place to stay--close to natural environment, quiet amd clean and up to date. The mattress and pillows were too firm for my liking; also, the heater was a bit noisy.

    Location

    No wifi in our room or 3g or cell service. Poor value - cheap amenities for premium price. Unacceptable management response to lack of hot water.

    Location good. Room was clean and large

    On both mornings I went to the continentalbreakfast 10 minutes after it opened (7:30am) and on both days the coffee urn was empty. The breakfast room was grossly inadequate-only 3 tables in a room about 10 feet square. At checkout 8/20 it took the desk almost 10 minutes to generate my bill. We had to pay for three night minimum though we were only able to stay 2 nights.

    Beds were very comfortable. Rooms were clean. Hot tube and pool were nice. This is an older hotel in a nice quiet neighborhood.

    They claimed free wireless internet, but we could not get on their network in the room, or even in the lobby. There was a place to plug in for hard-wire connection in the room if you have a cable. Also there seems to be no cell phone coverage in the hotel, as Verizon and T-Mobile had no reception.

    Just enjoyed everything, quiet and clean, nice room.

    Need to improve on continental breakfast. Room to small need to spread things out on counter to get to it easily. You have allot of wasted space where the micro wave is at.

    Nice, quiet and safe neighborhood. Pleasant and short walk to the shore. Check-in was easy and fast. Breakfast was included. Short drive to Monterey Bay attractions. The town of Pacific Grove is charming and has some good restaurants.

    Despite several attempts and phone calls to the frot desk, we never could get the wireless internet connection to work. Also, if you have an iPad it will not work at all, ever. The toilet in our room became clogged and after waiting 45 minutes for maintenance to arrive, we called the front desk again. They informed us that we could either wait some more or come to the front desk and get the toilet plunger and unclog it ourselves. After an hour and a half, maintenance finally showed up. We booked two rooms and the room with the king size bed had a mattress that was so hard and uncomfortable that it was impossible to sleep through the night. The room with the queen beds was comfortable, though.

    Superb

    Before we made a reservation we read few opinions that hotel outdated - I do not confirm it. We liked our fireplace, balcony and beautifull surroundings.

    Brekfast was terrible. It is terrible in every american hotel however here was double terrible - no mayo, no ketchup, old eggs & small room. Bleeeee....

    My sister and I stayed for an overnighter. We were pleased with the cleanliness of our room, two comfortable queen sized beds and general outlay and decor of the hotel.The location was wonderful, near the ocean, free trolley to Monterrey and downtown Pacific Grove. I would recommend this to anyone. Priced right too!

    Hotel & facilities were ok. Room was clean. Hotel is situated in an silent neighbourhood.

    Booking was for four persons but there were no towels & utilities for four persons. Breakfast was included but only served in a small ex- bedroom with only 3 small tables. I suspect Americans prefer to have their breakfast in their own bedroom.

    hot tub. nice people.

    awful pillows, worse breakfast, much too expensive for the value. The decor is stuck back in the 1970s. It was not comfortable but it was clean and relaxed.
