We spent just one night here, but would have loved to stay longer!The room was large, clean and comfortable with all the services you would expect. Good location, private parking, Spa, swimming pool and breakfast. We definitely would recommend it!

The room was pleasant with a view of the graveyard. That was fine. Private and quiet. The room was large, had a microwave and mini frig. But the carpet was gross. It needs replacing. The person checking us in gave us a paper with our room number and on it was marked the room by the pool for the breakfast. Wrong. The breakfast was across the street at their cottages. Why did the reception give out wrong info? Lazy? Did not want to update the info? She even highlighted that the breakfast was at the pool room. This is the second time we stayed. I was happy the first time because we stayed at the cottages. I will try once more when we go the area to see if they pay attention to the reviews and improve. Great location.

Room Tip: Good location

Cottages outside: adorable. Inside: wow outdated and badly done the first time around. Also, we agree with the other review, don't stay in lodge side unless you're accustomed to sleeping in a hotel that charges hourly. That side even overlooks a graveyard.
Try to book a cottage early if it's cold out, their strange heating system takes FOREVER to heat the room.
They originally tried to put us in a lodge room; we stayed less than 5 mins and we're happy to pay extra for the cottage but it wasn't a ton better. We would not stay here again.

The only reason to stay in the lodge rooms is if you either are a dog, so you don't care about quality, or you bring a dog with you, as they are allowed to stay here for an extra $50.00 fee. The rooms are very old and worn out and unpleasant,appearing unclean. We had a room with a gas fireplace that was making a constant noise. Their fix was to turn off the pilot so there was no noise and no useable fireplace, but with no discount for the extra cost of the fireplace. When we saw a mouse run through the room, they gave us another room for the night, we had to move all our luggage ourselves to the opposite end of the property, and after saying we would get the night free they then said it would be only a small discount. The breakfast is awful, we went out every morning. The location and ability to bring your dog are the only reason to consider this place. We will look for other accommodations that are dog friendly next trip.

Room Tip: The upstairs rooms seem a bit nicer as they have high ceilings.

We have always had a wonderful time staying in the cottages. The rooms are older, but cozy, clean and spacious! The bathrooms are huge with modern travertine floors and showers. The location cannot be beat being only a short walk to the ocean! An added touch is the wine and cheese in the evening and breakfast each morning!

Room Tip: Choose the cottages acrossed the street from the motel!

If you are looking for a basic place to stay with a few amenities, this is a good option in Pacific Grove. Room was clean, bed comfortable, and the free wi-fi was fast - I didn't need to pay for the high speed to access all of my work items. Breakfast was the same daily - scrambled eggs, potatoes, hot oatmeal, one cold cereal option, fruit and toast. Good enough for free. The pool is small. The rooms are showing their age. The bathroom sink counter was limited. The place was not full but it had the potential for being noisy. It seemed like if I had neighbors next to me, I would hear everything because it was somewhat noisy when the neighbors 2 doors down did anything. Definitely ask for the top floor to reduce this issue. Great location and parking is plentiful. Good place if you do not care about anything fancy.

Room Tip: Stay upstairs

We have stayed at this property several times over the past 10 years and it seems to change ownership a lot. This time our room wasn't ready at 3:00 and the clerk took my cell phone to call me when it was ready. She never called, I had to call back. The room is dated and hasn't changed much over the years. The comforter is very worn (looks like it came from a garage sale) and the screen door had a large tear in it. Even though we reported it, it was never fixed. Guess it wasn't a priority. One of the main reasons we like to stay here is the complimentary full breakfast and evening wine/appetizers in the lodge. The breakfast was disappointing as well as the evening appetizers. Seems like they are trying to cut costs and it shows! The cottages are supposed to be remodeled next year and I was told that the general manager is "temporary". I hope they get their act together, because this used to be a great place to stay.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have an extra window, which is nice for brightness and fresh air.
