“A Good Place to Stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 June 2014

We have been staying here for years and hope that the new management bring it back to where it was back in 2009, an excellent value. They certainly seem to be taking steps to make that happen. The rooms are generally spacious with all the amenities but needed some updating which is now happening. The location is wonderful as one is right by the Monarch Preserve, not too far from downtown or Asilomar and the beach. A good bargain, particularly in winter, I hope they get things ironed out and working well.

How to spend few nights in the Monterey Peninsula without spending $500 per night or more.

This hotel is the answer, the staff is very friendly, it is clean, the room we had was huge.

The swimming pool is pleasant and the hot tub is working (don't laugh, it is an achievement!)

On the downside, the water pressure in the shower is very low, yet good enough to take a shower.

There is no air conditioning, but it was so cold we actually used the heater (a fireplace with a noisy blower).

The breakfast is free, if you dont like carbs you are out of luck they only items proposed are: muffins, waffles, bread, english muffins, cereals, oatmeal, bananas, ...

So it would not be great anywhere else but provided the next step up is 3 times the price, we had a decent room and enjoyed our time very much.

Close to everything but off the main drag. Friendly staff. It was out of season to see the butterflies but there were some deer hanging out on the property. There is an old Victorian house converted into rooms and newer buildings of rooms as well.

I have been coming to Butterfly Grove Inn every year for at least 6 years now. This year there is new mgmt and the room was great but we had an issue at check out and might not return. We had heard magnetic strip keys hold all of your personal info including credit card info and its best to not return them upon check out since your info can be obtained off the card. My mother went in for a receipt and the woman at front desk insisted that she return the card. I was not there but my mother returned to the car to retrieve the card and was obviously irritated over the exchange. She explained to them why she preferred to not return the key but again the woman insisted. This key was a plain white credit card size key with an orange sticker with room# written on it... nothing fancy! Fyi we had just come from Cambria and kept both room keys and those had preprinted photos on them of Moonstone Beach and check out folks never asked us for our keys at all. As savvy travelers we are trying to protect our personal info while enjoying our vacation and I think they could brush up on traveler safety for their guests sake and maybe try agreeing with their customers if they want to keep them. I would give the room a 5 but because of our key issue I have to rate a 3.

Thank you for you review. We appreciate the review and hope to see you soon. We apologize for the misunderstanding of the key, however, we spoke to the key manufacturer and they insisted this is only a rumor. Please do your own research as well and you will learn that hotel keys do not hold personally identifiable information (PII). It is policy to collect the hotel room card keys as they are not free. Hope you understand.

I wanted a one night stay last minute at the coast. The big hotel experience wasn't calling me as usual so chose to not stay in Monterey. I am so incredibly happy to have chosen Butterfly Grove Inn. It may not be for everybody but if you are looking for quiet, serene, and peace...choose this beautiful property. If not...please look elsewhere and leave it to those of us who enjoy such gorgeous settings. It's a gem and I do hope it remains.

Staying alone, I felt safe and comfortable. A walk to anywhere - beach, golf, rocky coastline, cute shops and wonderful restaurants. Be forewarned that the property sits on Ridge Drive...as in on top of a hill off of Lighthouse so if walking uphill is an issue, then this may not be suitable.

I do know the property is in process of being updated and has new management which is wonderful. Having a mini-fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, hairdryer, and parking directly in front of door is ideal. Furnishings, carpet, paint needs to be attended to.

Dog-friendly and hoping to return in a few weeks with mine.

We were looking for a nice, quiet place to stay, and this place was perfect. Rooms are nice sized and very clean. The grounds are very pretty and serene. We especially enjoyed seeing deer ourside our door one evening. We appreciated being able to park right outside our room. The flat screen television and the gas fireplace in the room was a special treat. The breakfast was decent and the staff was very friendly and pleasant. The location is great as it's quiet and off the main street, but still very close to many attractions. We most definitely would like to return, and will encourage family and friends to visit as well.

The location was perfect, off the main road. Quiet, clean, spacious room. Staff was very friendly. We only stayed one night. We have family in Pacific Grove, but there isn't a lot of room at their home. So we are always looking for a nice place to stay for a weekend every couple of months.
