"clean & spacious and the staff supportive"
The hotel was a very good choice for the cost. The room was attractive, clean and spacious. The grounds were lovely. But the internet in our room was useless. Either non-existent or intermittent. This hotel MUST improve its wireless wifi. We were on a business trip and were very frustrated by the lack of wireless service. We had to come down to the lobby to get a steady connection.

"Nice stay for Pacific Grove"
Pacific Grove is a very beautiful area, and there are lot of hotels choices. This is not the best, but definitely not the worse. It's a nice place for the price, clean with a decent continental breakfast. Walking distance to the Lighthouse, beach and even golf course. A good value of the price.

"The name does not fit"
The staff is very helpful and corteus. The room however was in serious need of deep cleaning and upgrading. Everything from the carpet to the walls looked grimmy and old. The beds were horrible, we paid $180 a night and the beds were probably worth $29.99 per night. We won't come back again. It's a waste of such friendly staff.

"Comfy, quiet hotel in beautiful PG"
The location of the hotel was very convenient and close (half mile) from the downtown strip. The hotel itself looks like it's been there a while, but it is clean and well kept. The service we got checking in was prompt and kind, and the breakfast was very good, well stocked, and a nice convenience. We paid $200.50 all inclusive for a single night's stay. Compared to other rates and locations, it seemed like the best deal around. We had a King room which was spacious, well-lit, had a TV, and a big clean washroom. Overall, I enjoyed the stay there; I would have liked a few more nights, but it was a short weekend :)

"Do not stay at this hotel."
The pictures on Internet are very deceiving. The wireless Internet does not work. The only decent thing was the breakfast. For the price you pay, this definitely is not the place to stay.

"Disgusting!"
Arriving early evening, we checked in and went right out to Cannery Row for dinner. We camr back and the kids jumped into bed. Before I got into bed I turned on the a/c which had a broken knob and the other was missing. I tried to open a window for fresh air and to cool down the room and there were no screens!when I called the front desk, the owner said that this was one of the only hotels in the area that had a/c, but could move me to another room. My kids Were already in bed!!! There are over 60 rooms and only 4 guests (now I know why), couldn't they have put us in a room that had a/c in the first place? We had to have them come to the room to remove the block on the very old small t.v. With no a/c, I turned on the ceiling fan and was up most of the night hoping it wouldn't fall on me. It made noise with each rotation and rocked of the base as if It was going to fall, it was so loose! The bathroom was clean at least.

"A good choice for the money"
I like this hotel but it is in sore need of an update. The room had a very lumpy bed and old decor but was clean and quiet. The location is great with lots to do around it and overcast in the morning being so close to the water. Their internet did not work properly for me a business traveller that was not good. The people were nice and helpful.

"A nice stay"
We were in Monterey/Carmel for "car week". Starting at the beginning - the staff was very nice and tried to help us as much as possible. We had a classic car with us. They gave us a room on the end with windows looking out at the parking lot so we could keep an eye on it. The neighborhood is wonderful - very quiet. The room was clean. The hotel (not a resort) is old but nice. The room was quiet, except for the "stomper family" one floor up. The hotel is 3 stories - parking on the bottom and then two floors of rooms. We did not use the pool but it looked nice. The breakfast was good (kind of creepy because it's in one of the rooms). Consisted of H.B. eggs, mini bagels/cream cheese, lots of pastries & fruit, instant oatmeal & cold cereals and bread for toast. We did not want our room made up the first day, but did the second. No one cleaned the room, but when we returned, the heater had been turned on full blast and it was like a sauna. Staff was very apologetic and gave us handfuls of soaps, shampoo, etc. Bed was comfy but pillows were hard. Over all nice stay, we would stay again.

This was a gift for my sister and her husband for my sister's birthday. They enjoyed their stay. The rooms were large, clean and comfortable; however, they said the property could be so much more with a remodel. All in all it worked for them for the two nights they were in town.

"The room was old and smelled dusty"
Sadly we paid less money for an amazing hotel in Washington state the weekend before so walking into this room was depressing. It smelled like dust, the curtains looked dirty and the towels were old looking as well. The hotel was very noisy and we could hear everything. We slept with the windows open due to the fact it smelled so bad. I honestly would not come back to this hotel for the price we paid

"Good and reliable nothing spectacular"
Hotel was a Best Western and seems what I would expect a Best Western to be. So with that in mind, it fits the expectation. No frills, just a decent stay. Biggest complaint was noise from upstairs guest walking loudly on floors. Location is not bad as it was only about a little over mile from the main Monterey drag. If you can't get right on Cannery Row, this is a nice alternative, Pacific Grove is absolutely beautiful.

We haven't had to request a non smoking room in a while as most California hotels are non smoking. Consequently our room smelled horribly of smoke and we noticed a lot of the rooms there allowed smoking. Yuk!

"Where's the coffee?"
My room was very pleasant, service was good, although my friends didn't get into their room until 8:00 PM. I like good coffee when I wake up and the "in room" coffee makers were really inadaquate and the coffee wasn't ready in the breakfast room until I think is was 7:30. We had early tee times and it wasn't ready. The restaurant across the street was really not good, should not have been recommended.

"very good hotel"
First off its more of a hotel then resort. the front of the sign says best western. Besides that great hotel!! Nice rooms, they have discount tickets for the aquarium. Saved a lot of money since I bought student tickets, and I did not have to wait in line. They have regular adult and children ticket also. The breakfast was okay. No meat or egg, just simple sweets, coffee, oj, bagel, and etc. I would definitely recommend this hotel though. It was cheap and very nice. Way better then I expected. Especially since they have enclosed parking for your car.

"They gave away our room"
Not happy. My buddy and I were in town for an event. We checked in on-time, and they gave away our two double beds room. A wedding party was there and someone had a problem with their room. So they made us pay by giving them our room. They offered us a single queen and a roll-away bed. Both of us looked at the roll-away - thin and old mattress, and said no way. Two old dudes ended up sharing a bed. Luckily we're old friends, but not a great sleep. Some of the wedding party was in the next room and we got to share in their loud story telling past 11:00pm at night. I had to ask for a move for the next night. They did accomodate us, but not happy about them giving away our room the first night. Really?

"Good location"
A bit disappointed in the "Deluxe King" room. What upgraded furniture? Not even a flat screen TV. Smelly fireplace smoke odor in room. Not very clean. Small balcony, view of parking lot below and apt. unit across. Old,very basic & cheaper construction, so any noise comes right through the walls/ceilings. Some covered parking spaces avail, and an elevator. Good location if you want to get a little bit away from the busy town area and enjoy the nearby coastal scenery.

"A Good Surprise"
First, beware a pool does not make it a resort. Outside of that, this turned out to be a great find. This hotel deserves a higher rating than Hotels.com gives it. The rooms were great large, comfortable, and VERY quiet. The location was outstanding a long walk (15-30minutes) or a very short drive to the beaches and many restaurants. The staff was exceptional very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was average but than doesn't take away from a wonderful stay. We will definitely come back.

"Pretty good place to stay"
This was a last minute decision in our travels, but it was worth it. The hotel staff was incredibly friendly and welcoming. The only downfall I think would have been the location to which breakfast was served. You weren't really able to comfortably enjoy it because it was in a little room and there were already several other people in the room. Overall, it was a great place to stay before heading to our immediate destination in Monterey.

"Perfect weekend getaway"
Monarch is very close to the coast and away from the city center. I and my wife went out on long walks by the coast and it was absolutely gorgeous. Restaurants/grocery stores are about 2 miles from the restaurant and along the 2 miles you will get to see line of beautifully architected private houses. Permanent residents of this place are indeed living in a paradise and I would recommend Monarch for anyone looking to unwind from the city life.

"Quiet hotel close to the beach"
This nice, quiet hotel in Pacific Grove isn't in a busy area, but within a short distance from a lighthouse, Cannery Row, and Fisherman's Wharf. It's a short walk to the beach, which is right next to a golf course. Carmel is a short drive as well. The hotel room was pleasant. They provided a good continental breakfast, though the eating area is in a small hotel room.
