I am a regular visitor to the area and I have been staying here for 6 times a year for about 20 years. The motel is older but in excellent repair and up to date. Fast wifi, that's a plus for me. The hot tub is great but pool isn't heated, darn it. The ocean can be heard at night...

We always have a great time at this property and in the area in general. They are even kind enough to provide us with a fan since my husband likes to keep the room cool. We love the laid back atmosphere of Pacific Grove and love watching all of the wild life especially the deer that roam around the property....

I just got back from a wonderful trip to Monterey and Carmel, and I could not believe how perfect the location of the inn turned out to be for us! It's within walking distance to the beach and lighthouse, and just a few minutes drive away from both Cannery Row and Carmel. The inn is laid out motel-style, where you...

Comfortable and quiet, within walking distance of town. Pool and breakfast available. Try the very popular seafood restaurant Passion Fish in town but get there early as fills up. The cafe opposite made an extremely tasty soup and lots of other choices and was friendly too.

This is a older hotel that appears to have been recently updated. Rooms are very clean and beds comfortable. It is in a very quiet neighborhood. The rooms have a small kitchenette area which was very convenient. The breakfast provided is minimal but this was not a problem for us. This hotel is close to area attractions but not in...

Great and comfortable stay. Loved the quiet at night, being so close to the ocean and especially enjoyed the hot tib and pool each night! The staff was friendly and helpful and the muffins in the mornings were awesome! Will definitely stay there again!

We enjoyed our stay at the inn. The room style fits a king size bed comfortably and had a walk-inn closet, flat screen tv and mini fridge. When we had a problem with our room, maintenance did what it could to fix the problem right away. Tons of food spots close by and Uber was very cheap and efficient.

wotif.com listed property as 4 stars. We booked for 3 people in a king bed room thinking a pull out couch or stretcher would be provided (as previously encountered over previous 3 wks of holiday). Instead the 3rd person had to sleep on the floor on top of blankets. The staff member didn't seem at all concerned about it but...

Nice hotel close to what we had planned to do. Price was very reasonable for the area. Room we had was very nice with the little kitchenette that we were upgraded to. Room was comfortable and clean. Breakfast could be improved a little.Funny to see raccoons sleeping on our 2nd floor balcony at each end.
