We stayed here with our 22 month old son. Nice, clean rooms, dishes served 2 people, so you may need to bring extra's if you have more. The location awesome!! Just a 5 minute walk to the beach in one direction and to the lighthouse the other direction. You could even see deer grazing near the houses on the way to the beach. They offer free juice and danishes in the office, and very helpful staff. WARNING: if you have a toddler or preschooler, do not use the gas fireplace, as it gets very HOT. Our son was so wired from the long drive, that he was running around in the living room/kitchenette area and touched the fireplace briefly. He sustained 3rd degree burns on his palm and finger pads. This was our first night there, which did put a bit of a damper on things, as we couldn't go to the beach due to avoiding getting sand in his wounds. Luckily there is an Urgent Care facility right in Pacific Grove and the staff was able to direct us there. There is a heater in the bedroom, look down toward the floor. There really should be a guard in front of the fireplace, or a sign indicating where the REAL heater is. We were also lucky to have a cottage that wasn't connected to anyone else, handy with a fussy toddler, and no noise from the neighbors!!! Overall, we enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay there again.

Very nice facility!! Everything was neat, clean, well-taken-care-of! The room was flat-out huge. Nice big TV too! Bathroom was modern and very comfortable. Good room appointments - but the bedframe seemed a little unsteady. The open area between the buildings was well-groomed and clean, plants obviously treated with care. Some great specimens - the trees were trimmed very artfully. Less than five minute walk to beach, downhill no less! Great beach walks. Scenery is to die for. Pix on site do NOT do it justice. Staff is friendly and efficient. Costs a chunk, but it's worth every single penny. Pacific Grove is a quiet little town with lots of good restaurants and minutes from Monterey and Carmel. The 17-mile drive was breathtaking - so was the $8 park pass; but the road was immaculate and the area a different world worth seeing.

If you're honeymooning, I'd recommend the BAW, good solid walls. We didn't hear a thing from our neighbors. *grin*

Motel is located in a quiet area close to the beautiful Asilomar State Beach. Rooms were nice and clean of the 2 star AAA rating, but reasonably price for Pacific Grove. Grounds are pleasant with grassy areas.

My husband and I spent a memorable honeymoon at the Bide A Wee twenty-nine years ago. One morning we woke up to a dear grazing outside our window. We rode bikes in Monterey, ate clam chowder at Cannery Row, and had a special dinner at a french resturant, Maison Bergerac. Our inlaws told us about it. In fact they came and stayed in the same upstairs room we did right after we left. We are thinking about staying at Bide A Wee on our 30th Anniversary!
