I was here with my two sons and had a room in the old Victorian house. Basically we had a studio with two bedrooms which was great as the boys slept in a separate room. We all loved the pool and hot tub. The guy at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. The location at walking distance from the beach and the center or Pacific Grove is convenient. I will certainly return here.

Very good value, Butterfly Inn is located in quiet neighborhood in Pacific Grove but less than 10 minutes to Monterey Aquarium, etc. An older, but very comfortable motel, and much less expensive than nearby Monterey motels.

The only positive was the price. Even with that, I would never stay here again. We stayed in a room in the large "house." It was a big room but disgusting. Smelled bad, carpet was gross, bathroom was small, old, stained. If we hadn't paid in advance and weren't committed to a family event in the area, I would have left.

We've stayed at the Butterfly Grove Inn 4 or 5 times over the past
5 years, and this most recent stay was our 5th anniversary. We noted
some improvements and up-grades--thoughtful touches--which were
greatly appreciated. Such a lovely place! You can bet that we're fans
for life.

I have stayed there for one night with my sister and brother, the room was renovated from a old house, very very big, I believe even for 4 person, would be no problem. The environment was very good, many giant trees in the yard, a wood area just in front of our room , very fresh air, and safe. I heard that gonna be thousands of butterfly during September. The staff is very lovely and conversable too, he helped us to found an excellent Thai restaurant which just few minutes away. anyway, we would very like to stay here again if we came back.

Room Tip: Very spacious room

First of all, WOW. I am baffled by the other reviews here because I think this place was a total gem. I booked Butterfly Grove Inn when i stumbled upon it on TripAdvisor. My attention was caught by the Butterfly Sanctuary. I was always curious to see how butterflies breed. Unfortunately, they only come out during the months of October- early November, nonetheless, my fiancé and I still enjoyed the morning walk at the Monarch and witness a family of reindeers enjoying a lovely morning instead.

The Room - we got room 19 and it was very spacious. It was equipped with HBO, fire place, fridge, microwave and it has high ceilings (not complaining) the bed was a King bed and you can probably fit 4 people in there. It was huge! The bathroom was clean too! Overall, i loved our room.

The Staff - They were very friendly and helpful. And they always clean your room!

Touristy Stuff - We were surprised to find out that the Sanctuary was part of a strip of Victorian establishments and homes. We strolled and had breakfast to homey cafes, we even saw a movie at their little theatre just because the town looked soo cute!
It's very close to Asilomar beach, a few miles drive to Carmel Valley and Big Sur!
I loved every stop we made!

Thanks Butterfly Grove Inn! We'll be back!
