Made arrangements to stay here at the last minute and we were very satisfied with our choice. We had a "studio suite" with a full kitchen. Great room, just as depicted on their website. Very Clean! We arrived mid-morning and the Inn's staff graciously accommodated our early arrival. Location of the inn was walking distance to the ocean...about a ten-minute...

Enjoyed our stay here. Within walking distance to Pacific Grove downtown and ocean walks. Light continental breakfast served each morning. Parking was a bit tight. Staff were very nice and helpful. Pool was under construction, so parking lot was a bit disorganized on a work morning. But I'm sure that's finished by now.

We loved the area and the rooms. The maid service was excellent and the room was extremely clean. The location was perfect. Very close to the beach. The staff was friendly was super helpful. I booked the wrong kind of room and they quickly remedied the situation even though it was my fault.

Our very small renovated room was clean but the bed and pillows were not comfortable. Continental breakfast was very limited and overall it was too expensive for the value. The location however, was perfect and in quiet nice neighborhood.

I stayed 2 nights at Monterey Peninsula Inn, which is situated about 4 blocks from the beach in Pacific Grove, and about that far to the public 18-hole links style golf course. I took a 30-minute walk from the motel that looped to and along the beach and bisected the course back to the motel. I checked in as a...

The inn is located near the end of lighthouse row and so traffic is not as bad as other locations. This location is also within half a mile of the Pacific Grove Municipal golf course and Point Pinos lighthouse. The Ocean view boulevard is also not more that about one mile away. The room was spacious, clean, and included a...

The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms were spacious, very clean and had plenty of towels. It was pleasantly quiet day and night. There is a golf course within walking distance. Easy parking. Close to down town Pacific Grove. We are planning to return with our dog next time.

The property is completely equipped to deal with inclement weather and emergencies. When we arrived the entire property had lost electricity, and the management made no attempt at letting the guests know about any arrangements. The guests were continuously asking the front desk about what was happening. The confused front desk said at one point, they could possibly consider turning...

We visited with our 3 dogs and 10 year old grandson. The room was very large with big windows, and there was a beautiful fenced patio for the dogs. Very quiet location. Super clean room and bath. Lovely location in Pacific Grove.
