Booked this hotel after reading glowing reviews. Staff was friendly. But decor, carpet and even door handle to room itself (hold at an angle before using card key) needed an upgrade. Room was clean and tidy. Brightest lighting was dim- caused difficulty in reading and watching TV. Free breakfast was mainly plain bagels and toast along with mini hostess donuts,...

This was our 3rd time staying at Monarch Resort. It's dated but has tons of character and old school charm. We also love the pool and hot tub. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is kind and accommodating. Can't beat it for the price in Pacific Grove.

I visited Montery on spring break with my children both girls aged 5 and 10. I was very impressed with this hotel and got a great rate! Our hotel room #117 was right across the hall from pool access and my girls loved swimming every night!! The hotel was very clean and had a continental breakfast that offered a lot...

The rooms are a bit throwbackish, but my room was quite comforable and quiet. I appreciated the complementary fire log in the fireplace. The property is close to the lighthouse, beach, and a public golf course. I will stay here again.

They are in the process of updating the property/ As of our visit in March of 2016 they had replaced the carpet and in-room appliances, painted inside and out, and the mattresses seemed new, too (least wise they were very comfy). I hope the Window coverings and balcony screen doors are next. We loved our stay so much that we...

You are given 1 firelog per room per night & they seem to last about 3 hours, More are available at housekeeping but are addt'l $$$'s ($4 per log i believe). you can easily walk to the nearby lighthouse as well as the coastline park where...

Our double queen room was quite roomy, clean and comfortable. However, we were visiting family for the holidays so did not spend a lot of time in our room. The small fridge in the room came in handy. The breakfast was nice - hard boiled eggs, assorted cereals, breads and pastries. Fresh fruit - whole bananas, tangerines and apples. Good...

We enjoyed a very pleasant stay at the Monarch Resort for a family of 4. We had two rooms with an adjoining common area, all with fireplaces that included a duraflame log to burn. The rooms were clean and comfortable and everything worked fine. Breakfast was included and the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location provides easy access...

I was expecting, from the reviews I had read, that this hotel would be average, but clean. I was truly disappointed. I couldn't overlook the spider webs on the walls, nor could I recommend a hotel that had blackout drapes that wouldn't open fully (broken), and a ceiling fan that had no pull string for the lights. When discussing this...

Our room was clean, comfortable, and enough space for two people. It had everything we needed. The interior of the hotel was very nice...plants, dolphin statues. Walking distance to the lighthouse and the butterfly sanctuary. Continental breakfast was ok...nothing spectacular but enough to get us going in the morning (hard boiled eggs, cereals, bagels, muffins, juice, coffee/tea).
