First time to this beautiful area and hotel selection was my good luck. Very friendly and helpful staff. We would definitely stay there again. Very nice continental breakfast set-up. Wished they had a computer for guest use. Other than that, we recommend this hotel,

Friendly staff. But did not really care about not being able to connect wifi in my room. Another guest I talked to had exactly the same problem. There was an electrical lamp swimming in the hottub! The maintenance at the hotel is not as it should be! Overpriced.

Called the Monarch Resort last minute and got a room. The prices at Pacific Grove are much better than the adjacent Monteray. Rooms are clean and a good size although a bit outdated. Breakfast was good, a Chinese Restaurant across the street was excellent. The only criticism I have is the wifi didn't work. I saw other guests having problems...

Staying at this place is like seeing where you will want to stay when you are over 60. It is slightly outdated and reminded me of an old peoples residential home. The room was clean, we know because we had to wait for it to be cleaned despite arriving at 4.45 pm. Check in is from 4 p.m. The beds...

Exellent location, super quite. Walking distance to town, lighthouse, ocean. Mostly a residential area with vary cool turn of the century houses, this a nice place for walks. Rooms are clean and a little dated, but all in all a great stay. I will be coming back!

We stayed in Monarch with two other couples. Our room had a fireplace and a balcony, was very clean, and the king size bed was comfortable. Breakfast was simple. We asked for an extended stay (on a very busy Sunday), and the manager did her best helping to accommodate us in a non-smoking room. They also have a small heated...

Last-minute trip down the coast. This place is definitely NOT a resort, but for $100 compared to staying in Carmel for $250, it was really a great deal. Our room had a fireplace and a balcony, was very clean, and the bed was comfy. Furnishings are dated, but not completely ridiculous. Really can't complain at the price when it's a...
