So I give this hotel a thumbs up, not Perfect, but decent/good. I stayed there over the weekend of May 2017. Rooms are pricey anywhere in Pacific Grove these days.. you won't find a room under $100 unless it's at a homeless shelter. But they have a warm heated pool, and the hallways are filled with nice plants and trees...

The property is very nice, but not worth the high price of rooms and other services. The food is lower really mediocre but extremely overpriced. The extras on the bill will be an unpleasant surprise. I have enjoyed other pricey hotels but never felt ripped off like my experience and the Monarch Beach Resot

We enjoyed our stay and did not have any problems checking. Matter of a fact they were friendly, courteous and let us check in before 4 pm. We stayed for five days and enjoyed "Monterey Car Week as well as the resort. We had a fire place which worked. The room was nice and clean. Also the complementary breakfast was...

First of all, upon check in, the room the room was filthy. Hair all in the sinks, on the linen and the tables. There was no staff to rectify the situation, the gentleman working the front desk was alone on the property. Also the day we tried to check in, we where told that check in was at 4:00 pm;...

STAY AWAY!!! This place should be called "Last Resort", based on the utter lack of any semblance of typical hospitality and courtesy. We go to Pacific Grove often and have stayed here a few times in the past when our favorite motels were not available. Last time we were less than impressed with the shabby rooms, sparse breakfast in a...

Well, all other reviews of this property are correct, very nice outside but very dated, lack of repair, drama and confusion at check in with us and others who followed. We stayed two nights, room was nice and large and clean, with fireplace. First morning we put out the please clean room sign before 9 am, returned at 1- room...

I do not typically write reviews but want to warn people about staying here. The reception desk was very interesting, but they try their best and are nice. She sounds extremely condescending but I actually think she genuinely is trying. The hotel is extremely dirty. Rooms have dirty towels with brown stains, ripped curtains with strange stains on them (blood...

Clean but bare minimum. Pigeons outside of our window making noise all night long. Interior halls and you could hear everything. Breakfast WAS definitely continental. Breakfast room could only accommodate two families at one time. Adequate lodging but less than we wanted.

This former St. Regis is a great property--much improved actually with the updating of the pool and cabanas and main lobby--but with service issues galore. Scheduling is really an issue. We attempted to cancel a spa appointment several times...and still received a panicked call asking where we were for it. And we tried to book a cabana several times, and...
