    Pacific Grove updated motel

    Stone tiled shower. Large back patio shaded with tree. Location near ocean walking paths and town..

    Terrible breakfast- just commercial muffins cut in half.

    Cozy getaway

    We stayed in the delux queen cottage and it was perfect! Newly remodeled, spacious, private and quiet with a kitchenette. The cottages don't share walls and have lovely views of landscaping and trees. Wish we would have stayed longer, we will be back.

    Beautiful décor is the icing on the cake for this newly remodeled hotel. Tiled bathrooms and pillow top mattresses combined with spacious closets and effective kitchenettes created a down-home luxurious feeling. Easily accessible from the parking lot, the room's manually locked doors allowed you to enter your home-away from home. In addition to all the typical amenities of vending and Wi-Fi, the beautifully tailored grounds were punctuated by a pool, Jacuzzi and fire pit. This affordable hotel had a feeling of opulence that doesn't break the bank.

    That I had to leave!

    The hotel is very simple and the continental breakfast means muffins and coffee. Definetely not a 3 stars.

    we stayed there a year ago and liked the location, pleasant color of the room, the view outside of our room, the quietness and being close to the ocean walk. So we decided to return and found everything being just as nice.

    There is nothing we found not to our liking. Thank you!

    one room had furniture outside in the parking lot waiting for the carpet to dry, yet we were given key and told it was ready. we were not assigned another room in the nearly empty complex and had to wait them out.No black out curtains with bright outside light making room like day time all night long, not good for sleeping. No hot water in the am for a shower, nor hot water in the sink. unconconcered and rude young woman at front desk. will not go back. mostly because of the nasty girl at the desk. told me next time i could go out at night and unscrew the bulb if the light bothered me. Couldnt explain the lack of appropiate curtains. probably out in the parking lot with the other furniture

    I thought the hotel was in a great location, you could actually hear the ocean waves at night, and a pretty good price for the area. It was a very quiet location too.

    The location

    bathroom needs updating,tiny thin shelf along the wall was the only space to put things,need a surround around the sink.Room cluttered with pictures and two fake flower pots.Not sure why a room near the sea has to have the 'italian countryside' look.It would make the rooms appear more spacious if the clutter was gone &colour scheme reflected sea side theme.?need for outside light on all night.

    The maintenance manager was nice, helpful. One of the older hosts was nice. The girl checking in was a smartie. And they never opened the continental breakfast until 8AM. So, the three days I attended my conference that started at 8AM in Monterey, I missed breakfast. !! I deserve a discount for no breakfast access for three days. Who does this? Every other inn around there starts at 6 AM!

    The room was dated. comfortable bed. The pool not heated, which precludes it's use. the tile in hot tub cracked and missing! And I paid more than was quoted.

    Clean & roomy

    Room did not have any air flow due to back windows being blocked by unit on other side, could have used a ceiling fan or vent. Hot water tank right outside bathroom window(extremely noisy) at 2:00 AM.
