My husband and I just moved to CA from FL 10/2013. We didn't have the funds to fly back to FL for Christmas (over 2K), so we decided to take a road trip over the holidays and SEE California! Our last stop was Pacific Grove. I chose this hotel for its location, pet policy & price.
-This hotel allows pets - it almost seemed like the only one around as everyone else there had a dog with them (we had our rat terrier, Fancy)
-From the hotel, it's just a short walk to the ocean; we watched the sunset both nights we were there - it was breathtaking
-They offer complimentary wine and cheese every night - it was nice
-The folks in the office were pretty nice.
-They have cable. It was so cold after the sunset we watch Bar Rescue for a couple of hours!
-This hotel is SERIOUSLY outdated and falling apart - literally. They need to invest in the property and give it a make-over, ASAP. They still use physical keys - no cards.
-The beds are so old and terrible - did not sleep well either night
-Strange old/musty smell in the room
-Lights in the bathroom don't reach the shower - that's right, hardly any light while showering
-The floor and linens in the room did look or seem clean - I slept in long pj pants and my hoodie & didn't walk around with my shoes off
-The walls are paper thin - we heard dogs barking, conversations, walking, giggling - you name it.
Overall, I would not stay here again unless it had been renovated. I'll pay extra to feel comfortable in a clean room.
