Our first time staying here, and it was quite nice. Room was clean and had good wifi, nice gas fireplace. Free breakfast was better than usual at hotels in this price range. Staff was very helpful, and parking was easy. Definitely will stay here again.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 15 March 2017

We enjoyed our few days here, trying to get over the jet lag of our journey. The rooms are so comfortable and beautifully clean. We felt that the service had improved since our last stay. Breakfast is nicely laid out but we felt it would be nice if the room were bigger for the number of guests staying there. Can...

The room is very nicely appointed. The king bed was extremely comfortable. We couldn't get the safe to work, but since we didn't need it, we did not report it. The hotel was located in a residential area and very quiet and peaceful. The beach was within walking distance and restaurants were in close proximity. We have stayed here before...

This hotel is located in a quiet neighborhood of Pacific Grove. It clearly used to be condos, but have been converted to hotel rooms, with the largest including a kitchen. I feel this is a much better option that the overpriced hotels on touristy Cannery Row in Monterey.

We decided to stay 1 night near Monterey so we could visit the aquarium early in the morning. Although this hotel is situated out of the way in a residential area, it was easy to find and very quick to drive to Monterey the next morning. The staff were very helpful at check in and let us leave our car...

Breakfast was good. Reception staff were friendly and helpful. The rooms are very well equipped large (fridge and microwave) and very comfortable and quiet. The location...

Good location away from the bustle around the downtown area. Very quiet. locartion. Walk to beach. Rooms were clean, but sorely needed an update. Very "brown" a little dark and depressing. Some garage parking available.We did not get the room we reserved, which was to have a fireplace. A bit disappointing. They gave us a two room suite instead, but...

Pacific Grove is a lovely quiet town adjacent to Monterey. This small inn is off the main road and within a ten minute walk to the beach. The layout is like a condo with different type of rooms / suites on each of the three levels. There are several buildings with 6 rooms total in each building. We stayed on...

We stayed for a night on a Road trip from San Fran to San Diego, lovely little inn, set in gorgeous woodlands next to a stunning beach. Highly recommended and also head to fishwife for dinner only a street away

We planned to stay for two nights but ended up staying three. We really liked this hotel. Large spacious suites, very clean, very quiet and plenty of free parking. An easy walk to Asilomar beach and a short drive to Carmel or Monterey. Quiet residential neighbourhood. Friendly and helpful staff.

“The larger suites with kitchens are located on the lower floors. Can be a bit noisy if the guests above are heavy walkers.”
