“Great stay--would go back again”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 June 2014

We were ambivalent about our booking at Bide a Wee, figuring that it would be wonderful or awful. We had stayed at Asilomar three years ago, but wanted alternative arrangements since the prices had gone up, they wouldn't guarantee bedding (we wanted 2 beds) and breakfast was no longer included.Since we wanted to be in walking distance of the beach, we thought we would try Bide A Wee.

The "cottages" and rooms are well situated in a quiet setting, We booked a double room but were upgraded to a "junior suite"--kind of odd with one bedroom and a second bed in the "living area". However, we appreciated the full kitchen and gas fireplace.

While we were there, someone was booking a return stay in August. Our room had been renovated and was very clean. Furniture was a bit old, but bedding was comfortable. There were multiple grills available for use. Breakfast consisted of bagels, muffins, packaged pastries, juice, coffee, tea.

Our first visit a few years ago was when we were traveling with our dog and needed dog friendly accommodations. This time it was a last minute reservation as we were driving home a new car from Oregon and needed a nice stopping point.

It is a wonderful location and quiet. The room was clean & looks like it had been recently redone . There was a kitchen which would have been great if you were staying a few days. The fireplace (electric) also would have been nice on a cold dreary day. The bed was very comfortable and a good nights sleep was had.

We did have an issue with Wi-Fi reception and cell coverage was spotty (Verizon). The gentleman behind the counter wouldn't open the door till 7am the following morning...we just had a question before we left. I'm assuming he thought we just wanted early breakfast. Instead of packaged sweet rolls they offered we drove into town and had a great cup of freshly brewed coffee and a scone at BookWorks on Lighthouse.

Location is great at Bide-A-Wee and if we again travel with our dog we would stay there....otherwise we would probably return to one of the many great B&B's Pacific Grove has to offer.

I reserved a room for a couple of days to explore the Monterey area. I have enjoyed the very peaceful location, very close to the Asilomar beach. I had a car so I could reach all the amenities in Monterey very quickly. The environment is very peaceful so this is a plus if you are looking for some rest from every day's chores. That said, as an internet addict I was very pleased to enjoy a good speed WiFi from my room (other reviews seem to suggest that this could be a problem but not for me). I would definitely go back if I happen to be around here in the future!

A couple of nights stay during the mid-week before Memorial Day weekend. Quiet and great price. An older place but well kept. Block away from Asilomar Beach which was great for walks. Short drive to Monterey and nearby attractions. Bring breakfast to room which had good offering of bagels, muffins, some fruit, juice and coffee. WiFi worked fine. Would definitely go back again.

Room Tip: Room 109 was a single cottage on the 2nd floor. Microwave and fridge only in this unit but it had ev...

We rented a room with double bed. The room is clean and nice. Have all the amenities that they said--Fireplace, microwave, fridge and TV. But the Wi-Fi sucks. We could not get any reception in our room. We have to walk out to the garden to use the Wi-Fi. When we complained to the staff, he said there is nothing he could do to help. The cellular reception (I have Verizon Wireless) is also very bad. I could not use my iPhone to check my dinner reservation.

The breakfast was offered in a cramped area right in front of the front desk--no sitting at all. We have to bring it back to our room to eat. The owner (or the staff) watched us while we took food. Very strange setting. Though I like their quietness and location, I don't think I would come back. There are plenty of other little Inn I would try next time.

Room Tip: Room that is far from office has pool reception of Wi-Fi

I visit Pacific Grove several times a year to visit family and typically stay at Asilomar or Pacific Garden Inn. When they were full, I decided to try Bide-A-Wee. I loved it. Much cleaner than either of the other locations, grounds are very pretty and location is great. This is my new place to stay!
