Reviewed 3 May 2014

Had a great weekend here with friends. Perfect location, quiet and clean. Plenty of parking! We stayed in the house that has been converted into multiple rooms. Extremely charming and plenty of space. Will come again.

This is our 4th time here and we absolutely love it! The new owners are great and they are continuously updating the rooms. The pool and spa area is so nice for the young kids. We plan on returning in the near future!!

This is a wonderful family-oriented, value priced establishment. If you want high-end and glossy, keep looking, but if you want a clean, safe, quiet place to stay in Pacific Grove that stretches your dollars, stop now and book your room. We just got back from our second stay here and we couldn't be happier with our experience. We stayed in Room 18, which is a two-bedroom, two-bath suite. Perfect for our two boys (ages 11 and 14) and us. They had their privacy and we had ours. Each room had a brand-new flat-screen TV with Directv. The Wi-Fi is free. The rooms were exceptionally clean. There was a nice sized refrigerator to hold our snacks, a few bottles of Corona and a bottle or two of wine. We were within easy walking distance of the restaurants in Pacific Grove, Asilomar State Beach, Lovers Point and the trail along the ocean. Cannery Row is a lovely two mile walk or two minute drive (but who wants to deal with parking when you can walk!). Fisherman's Wharf is three miles. After a day of sightseeing, hiking or whatever makes you happy, come back here and relax by the pool and hot tub. The pool is heated and we swam in April! Sitting by the pool, all we heard was quiet broken by the birds. And the customer service is fabulous. The staff are friendly, helpful and responsive. Quick replies to my questions via email during the booking process! We'll be back for sure!

Room Tip: Both rooms we've stayed in have been clean and quiet. Rooms have a good sized mini-fridge. Will...

This motel consists of a bunch of little motel rooms around the perimeter with a large 100 year old house that has been converted into multiple rooms. We stayed in a section of the house that had 2 separate bedrooms plus a bathroom in between. 2 bedrooms in a motel for $112/night? I'm sold! I basically hate hotel rooms where everyone has to sleep in one room.

The front desk lady said the new owners plan to remodel the house to a Victorian style after the busy season ends. I thought it was clean and totally acceptable now, so I assume it will be really nice after the remodel. Sad thing is, they'll probably raise the rates.

This is an old motel that has been kept up well. There is nothing fancy here. Old furnishings, although the beds are comfortable. Decent outdoor pool and small spa. Nice grounds. And you park your car right infront of your door. We were in room 18 which has 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. It was a nice room, and our daughter could have her own space. A small fireplace in the main bedroom, as well as a microwave and mini-refrigerator. The motel is situated right next to the Monarch Butterfly sanctuary. So when the butterflies are there, you can see them everywhere in the trees. The location is great. The prices are the most reasonable we have found. There is a 72 hour cancellation policy. Our daughter came down with a bad cold and we decided to leave a day early. We understood that we would not get a refund, but we were touched that the owner came to wish our daughter well as we were packing up. The "continental breakfast" is just toast and coffee. It will not be enough to call a real breakfast, but that's okay as there are great places for breakfast just a half mile away. So if you are on a budget, or have young children, we would recommend this place. We will definately be back.

Treated my girlfriends with an overnite get-a-way. Loved the family suite with 2 bathrooms, great spa and breakfast. Price was so affordable. Loved the monarch butterflies located at the inn.
Definitely will recommend.

Room Tip: The family suite was very comfortable for 4 with 2 baths, fireplace, microwave and refrigerator.

This is a cute little 60's vintage motel that has been nicely updated and is tucked away far from the hubbub of Monterrey yet close to the beautiful shoreline near the point. It is clean, with spacious rooms and good mattresses and other appointments, albeit a bit sparse given how huge the rooms are.

Complaints are three:
1) The breakfast fare is definitely on the cheap side, even for continental. Tiny cups, limited selection. Sort of a 'Motel 6' free breakfast.
2) The cheapness extends to the soap and shampoo items. Here, it really is Motel 6 level bar of soap that barely covers your thumb.
3) Finally, and this could be the deal breaker for any women whose hair is longer than 4 inches, the shower is an absolute joke. I live in Southern California and well understand the drought situation that we are in. I have stayed in Santa Barbara that probably has the most onerous water usage laws in the world. That said, the water pressure being delivered to this shower head meant that it was little more than a Palm Springs outdoor mister. Taking a shower was a ten minute ordeal and I cannot imagine how someone with long hair could possibly wash their hair. You had to hold the bar of soap directly under the shower head for ten seconds to even get it wet!

Stayed December 2013, travelled as a couple
