There's nothing wrong with March. The weather can be a little fickle. Rain is still likely, but so is sparkling spring weather. It's a transitional period, weather wise, and the changes that occur makes for some of the most spectacular sunsets of the year.

Traffic-wise, you'll avoid the worst tourist traffic which comes during spring break and summer.

It's a good time to be here.

I just booked a little March getaway to Monterey, myself. I'll take whatever weather comes that way. There's never a bad time to visit.

I don't have firsthand knowledge of Pine Acres Lodge. But I can tell you that the area is safe, pleasant and convenient. There really is no lodging in Pacific Grove that I'd call upscale, but most are clean and comfortable.
