This was a great location where we saw deer daily and the odd racoon.The room was spacious,comfortable and more like a studio flat. Fully equipped with fridge and microwave. The breakfast was ok more continental, the only hot meal was toast or waffle. Overall a great place to stay and would definitely return.

This was the most amazing place I have ever stayed, due to its location and unique property characteristics, the value and it's immaculate cleanliness and attention to order and detail. I love Pacific Grove. This little gem should be one of its best kept secrets for my sake.

Room was very clean. Our room (103) was great, except for the bed. It was very hard and could not get a good nights sleep. The staff was very helpful. Place was in a quiet neighborhood, no traffic noise at all.

My wife and I spent one night in this facility on a trip along the West Coast. The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. Pleasant reception. Breakfast was good. In a very nice location around a wooded area. Short drive to beach; easy access from 101.

Staying in Pacific Grove California is always good. It's fun watching wild deer wander about. There is magic in the forest, and walks through the village and at the sea coast are very uplifting. The hotel is very convenient. We book a large suite with a kitchen. Stop at Trader Joe's for snacks to fill the frig so we don't...

Clean, quiet, comfortable and very family friendly. The included breakfast was a great selection and the area was so quiet! Our room included a small kitchenette which was very handy. Would certainly stay again.

This hotel is 2 miles from Monterey downtown area and near the 17 Mile Must Do Drive. Older property which could use some updates, but large. In residential area, about a 10 minute walk to beach. No air conditioning, but didn't need it. Only waffles and dry items for breakfast. (No eggs, sausage, etc.)
