Pacific Grove, and The Bide-A-Wee Inn (one block from the beautiful Pacific Ocean) is our go-to place for a quiet romantic couple of days. You can drive to Monterey in 10 min, but avoid all of the busy traffic and ambient noise by coming back to peaceful Pacific Grove. The ocean views are second-to-none and the room rates are very...

We have stayed several times at the Bide A Wee Inn and Cottages in Pacific Grove. Lovely grounds, friendly and accommodating personnel, who are always ready to make your stay memorable. The rooms are clean and efficient and the Inn is within a short walking distance to the ocean. Pets are allowed with a minimal fee and that is a...

What a charming place. Very pretty grounds. Beautiful sitting areas. I loved the fireplace in the room. My sister and I stayed at couple nights and both of us plan on returning. Drive around the corner and there's the beautiful Pacific :-) I would love to stay a week!

Stayed 3 nights without any hitches. Made our booking from the UK many months before hand so I was a little worried after some reviews. We had a no pets room which was fine for the 2 of us, it was upstairs. Fridge and microwave in room. Lots of lovely chairs and table to sit outside. 5 minute walk to...

We have stayed at the Bide-A-Wee for many years but will not be returning due to a terrible experience with the reservations and the office incompetence. After making my reservation two months in advance I was told one week before arrival that the confirmation numbers didn't mean anything and one of my rooms had been cancelled. After many phone calls...

Clean with a great location. Very quiet and close to the beach. Space was more than we could ask for - 2 separate bedrooms split by a bathroom. We were in room 121 which is above the office. Found there was no real noise except for the others who shared the neighboring wall. Disrespectful and loud. All in all nice...

At first we were a little disappointed in the room and amenities. The cottage my wife and I shared with a another couple was basic but clean and comfortable. And the location was perfect for our planned activities the following day, which was to visit the famed Monterey Aquarium for which discounted tickets were made available by Alex, the manager....

We found Bide-a-Wee last minute while we were heading through Monterrey. We decided to stay one night in a one-bedroom cottage. When we checked in, I guess the receptionist had an issue with our booking (through Expedia). She said they didn't give her our credit information. She called Expedia and had me wait until she spoke with them (but still...

My husband and I stayed here while we volunteered for the AT&T Pro AM (February 2016) and it served its purpose. It's small and quiet and provides all the needed nessities. It's close to the golf course and walking distance to the beach for that early morning mediation walk. I would certainly recommended and stay here again next year!!
