"Best family vacation rental for the price!"
I rented a cottage with a king size bed and fold out couch bed. The room had a bubble jet tub,wet bar,mini fridge,high vaulted ceilings,fireplace,and large closet. The reviews were initially bad but reflected a time before it changed ownership in 2012 and again in June 2013. The cottage rental included a chef prepared breakfast with many choices and […] wine with horderves in the evening.There was a outdoor fire pit near our rooms. The service desk was very helpful and accommodating. Nice pool area and jacuzzi but you had to walk across the street to access it in the lodge rental area. The bathrooms near the pool had showers to rinse off and complementary towels. I could see the beach from my room and could walk or bike along a trail there. This was all half the price of what I have been paying for 5 years at a high end hotel on Munras street without the amenities. I highly recommend this place for any family or couple and its a stone's throw from all the hot spots. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
My stay was wonderful, we enjoyed the Chef prepared breakfast and the wine and Cheese in the evening. My family and I had a great time, I will definitely be returning with my girlfriend for a well deserved get a way. However I was not allowed to use my Promo code to capture the discount which would have been nice.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Still convenient and blissful"
Getting seedy. Eatery in sharp decline. After the first morning, avoided 'free' breakfast. For 30+ years, the breakfast was excellent, and a late-afternoon wine/cheese hour was welcome too. The location remains very attractive, and the staff are friendly/helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Granparents with 3 grandkids"
Convenient location. The main thing is that the g-kids had a good time, which they did.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable and pleasant."
Our 3 grandchildren (20g, 17g and 14b) loved having 2 fireplaces in their suite. They were a little freaked out to overlook a graveyard, but when they saw ten or more deer they were very happy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, short walk to ocean."
Nice relaxing location. Walk to ocean, golf course and lighthouse. Great breakfast and wine reception. Deer outside our window each night. Most comfortable pillow top bed ever! Would stay agian!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Disappointed that the afternoon BBQ wasn't available as promised, but the breakfasts were terrific!Genuine Expedia guest review
It was ok. We would stay there again if we had to, but plan on staying elsewhere in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Okay older property"
I was okay. The facility is quite old. I am not sure it is worth $175.00 per night. There are likely better hotels to stay at.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyed our stay, greeted by a fawn on the patio"
We loved our stay, hotel service was excellent and we were comfortable. We plan on future trips. Location is ideal and the breakfast is cooked but buffet style, much healthier than packaged pastries. Wine and cheese with barbecue every evening was also a nice option.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
staff was very informative and friendly. They even updated our room for us. We have stayed here before and will be back again next year on our anniversary. Thank you for a great trip!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Make syou feel like family"
We loved staying here!! I thought that waking up and having a chef prepared breakfast every morning for free was a wonderful way to start the day!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice location in Pacific Grove"
My husband and I stayed here for two nights and enjoyed the comfy beds and great location. The pool and spa were nice too, but since they were outside they needed to be cleaned from the pine needles frequently. Overall we were pleased with the lodge room and enjoyed the cute town of Pacific Grove.Genuine Expedia guest review
The room was very clean, smelled nice. Atmosphere was quiet and the bed was comfortable. Our only complaint was that repairs that had been made to the room were done by an amateur or third grader. Tile grout was mismatched color, the wood frame around the bathroom door had a 3/4" gap under it due to dry rot and the water pressure was marginal.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Reasonably priced well located comfortable lodging"
The rooms and facilities were clean and staff were friendly. A good Asian restaurant just up the road. Our room overlooked a cemetery but this did not bother us. Well located for beach walks, less than 0.5 mile down the road.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not What It Used To Be"
I have been staying here for more than 20 years. Over time my partner and I have noticed an overall decline in service, amenities, appearance, maintenance and cleanliness. We love the location and the full breakfast and afternoon/evening BBQ (a real value) kept us coming back. Sadly, This will probably be our last stay here. Upon arrival we were informed […] that the BBQ would no longer be included. Since it was promoted by the property when we booked our stay, we asked if we would receive a discount. None was given and the front desk staff seemed embarrassed. Almost all the slider doors in the complex are clouded over. Walls are scuffed and in some rooms carpeting is disgustingly stained and shabby. For the price there is limited cable (ex. No ESPN2); The housekeeper kept forgetting to replace in room coffee packets. Years before there was always fresh salsa available as a condiment for breakfast eggs. Now there are only little ketchup packets. There were always cookies available...no more. Lamps are broken, woodwork badly scratched, water stains in bathrooms, no vending machines and a management that doesn't seem to care about anything but making life easier for themselves, raising rates and giving less in return.

"Will come back"
My family stayed in one of the cottages and had a very pleasant time. The kids enjoyed the pool, as well as the breakfast. It was nice and quiet, yet close to Cannery Row and the wharf.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value, quiet stay"
Comfortable room, bed, quiet stay. Things are a little shabby(curtains in room probably there since the eighties, cabinets need refinishing.) Overall they have thought of everything. Decent breakfast.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"View of cemetery."
the first room was beside the parking lot. The 2nd room overlooked the cemetery. It WAS peaceful. Room expensive. Complementary dinner: hamburgers. The wine was good, which was also complementary.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good location and newly modeled place"
Stayed on night on our way north on the PCH. The hotel is surprisely new or newly re-modeled. Great location by the beach. One of the great features is that they deliver your pre-ordered breakfast to your room like the fancy hotel!Genuine Expedia guest review
I never leave a less than positive review but this place was kind of run down and our room was smelly. It needs to be updated. Postives - heated pool, free breakfast and free hamburger and hotdog bbq (great cost saver for families).Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"It was close to the ocean and other sights."
We had a very nice stay at the Inn. It was very easy to get to and very close to the ocean. We had two toddlers and the hotel was very comfortable for them. The breakfast was very good and the children enjoyed as much as we did.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great deal for the price"
We've been coming to this hotel for over 5 years now. The rooms are the same - comfortable and clean, but not anything special. What makes it worth coming back to is the inclusion of breakfast and dinner each day. Once again, they're nothing special, but better than many other places. Breakfast consists of oatmeal, scrambled eggs, hash browns, toast, […] fruit (usually bananas) and juice. Dinner is burgers, hot dogs or veggie burgers on request along with their fixins (lettuce, tomatoes, onions, cheese), chips, salad and lemonade or punch. If the fog isn't too thick, it's nice to be able to eat poolside while the kids play in the pool. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"overlooking a cemetery"
Fine but not special. Reserved a king with fireplace but got one without. Fan or light hummed all night in bathroom. Place needs upkeep. Soft bed but older mattress with sag in the middle. For the price it was ok.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Too expensive for what and where it is."
This location needs a total upgrade to justify the cost.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet and restful."
The place is old, but well kept. Complimentary breakfast was convenient and complete. The pool and spa were added bonuses.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
""Disappointing Hotel Experience""
We stayed in the Lodge. The carpet was filthy. The keys did not work. There was a dirty face towel hanging in the shower when we first arrived. The vending machines were "out of service" during our entire stay. The balcony furniture were "disgusting" with dust and dirt, and the sliding screen door would choke us with the dust and dirt. We had to request […] housekeeping to clean the balcony furniture and screen door. On the good side we did get upgraded to a full breakfast at the Cottages. The food was very good and the staff was friendly and very efficient. Our room was incredibly overpriced at $153 per night. We've stayed at far better places in Pacific Grove for less than $100 per night. It was not a good hotel experience for our anniversary. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"great for families"
The staff was extremely helpful and courteous. They made our 2 day stay with our small children very pleasant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Comfortable but outdated and smaller-than-expected"
The staff at the check-in desk were brisk and not particularly welcoming, although they were efficient and quick in checking us in. The room was smaller than expected. The double queen beds were comfortable, but the bathroom flooring and door seem in need of remodel. The bathtub was easy to use and there was plenty of hot water. The hotel is located […] in a quiet section of the town, very close by the scenic route along the coast, which is beautiful. The breakfast was okay, nothing to write home about. We did not attend the BBQ since we wanted to sample sea food in this coastal town. Overall, our impression of this hotel is that it provides a comfortable bed to sleep and a place to clean up, but not a place to spend a lot of time in. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, good rooms."
Stayed with my son. Bottom line we loved it there. Pros: Each room has a patio or balcony. There's enough parking for the rooms they have. The room was large and had a fireplace. Skylight in the bathroom was a nice touch. It's within walking distance from the Pacific Grove Golf course - which is one of my favorite courses (a poor man's Pebble Beach […] on the back 9). It's also within walking distance to the beach. My son loved climbing on the rocks. The bed was not overly firm and not run down - very much to my liking. Mini fridge is larger than the cubes you sometimes get and kept our stuff nice and cold. Cons: Our fireplace didn't work. Man from the desk came and lit the pilot and it worked for a while but went out again. (bad thermostat?) The place, while clean and well maintained is old. There's a hint of that that hits your nose as you walk in. TV is old skool CRT but adequate. It's within a few blocks of many restaurants and coffee shops in Pacific Grove. You should have no trouble finding food without having to resort to driving into the crowds at Monterey. The wifi is free and was fast enough to stream Netflix (perhaps not at the highest quality) speedof.me clocked it at right around 1 mb/s. Certainly fast enough to use yelp or google.

Comfortable room in an attractive setting. Particularly enjoyed the fact our room opened out onto a park-like cemetery with its frequent deer visitors.Genuine Expedia guest review
Lovely setting near Asilomar Beach and lighthouse. Enjoyed hot tub, pool, breakfast, and daily barbeque. Beds need to be replaced as they are soft and when one person turns over, the over one moves, too. Window treatments and coverlets need to be replaced. Polite and helpful hotel staff, including servers in the food area. Very nice pool area with fence […] and glass wind screen around it to protect it from the ocean breezes. Good place for children with patios and grass behind the hotel where they can play. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Great breakfast (included). Great location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for a family with children"
The bed was comfortable but springy. The pool is heated which is nice. Breakfast was included which consisted of oatmeal and toppings, coffee, eggs, potatoes, cereal, toast and juice each day, dinner was also included, poolside BBQ hot dogs hamburgers chili and fixings including dessert, brownies or cookies. It was ok but I ate it once and couldn't […] do it again the next day. Great for kids! People with discriminating taste would not like it. The overall appearance was a notch above a motel but at 159 a night I feel I needed a big family to get my money's worth. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Terrible place to stay"
Hotel is old and the very musty smell in the room. Bed very uncomfortable. View was of a cemetry. Breakfast OK - free dinner was a BBQ with hot dogs and hamburger. OK Would not stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great location but the Hotel was tired. Seemed to be stuck in the 80s. The exterior was nice but the interior was in need of remodeling and redecorating. The breakfast was as lackluster as the accommodationsGenuine Expedia guest review
"Love this hotel."
Staff is really friendly & accommodating. This was our second toms staying here. Only this time with our two children (1 & 2yo). They loved it. We will definitely stay here again when we visit. We had a fridge, microwave, coffee maker in our room. No fans in the room (called the front desk & they brought a portable one to our room) & no screen door […] on the sliding glass door or the bathroom window. No child proofing (ill remember to bring my own electric plug covers next time.) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Well honestly we didn't stay. Hotels.com accomodated us in finding a hote with the type of room that we had originally booked. Apparently the reservation was entered incorrectly into the Lighthouse system and they didn't have a room to accomodate our choices. So, we were in the room for 2 hours. It smelled heavily of bleach. The screen door on the patio […] was torn. Overall old. Great location, needs updating. For the price? Not worth it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"could have been better - but GREAT location"
we were disappointed!! Stayed about 7 years ago and were very impressed!! Sadly, this time - not so much!! The room wasn't very nice or even moderately maintained, although it was clean. Screen on balcony was broken, king size mattress was set on full/queen siza box springs and frame, chairs were just sad. The rooms overall were clean and the location […] is fantastic - but we have stayed in Quality Inns and Days Inns that were nicer, better maintained, and far less expensive - again, disappointing.

"Mothers Day Trip 2013"
We had a wonderful time at the Lighthouse Lodge. Didn't really know anything about it but it got decent reviews and it had a hottub, which is #1 on my husbands list of needs. I was so tickled by this place. It is in a great location. It is close to the water, golf, shops/restaurants without being overly touristy. Love that they include breakfast and […] a BBQ in the afternoon. Great pool. They even give you robes at the frontdesk. Huge hottub that was the perfect temp. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were a very good size. We had 4 adults in one room and it did not feel cramped at all. We had a room facing the cemetary. I know some people had a problem with that but I thought it was great. It was very quite and we had a great view of all of the deer roaming around. I also really appreciate when hotels provide refrigerators/microwaves in the rooms. I would definitely go back again and would definitely reccommend this place. What a great find.

Great time seeing the area. Deer in the grounds, go down to the beach to see the harbor seals. There are some excellent food places around the area.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wonderful Monterey stay"
We came to Monterey to celebrate my wife's birthday. We were not disappointed with this lodge. We brought our bicycles to ride the Monterey Bay Trail. We were near the beach from the start and were about a mile from the trail beginning. We rode through Pacific Grove, Monterey, Sand City, Seaside and into old Fort Ord. It was a long ride (about 30 miles […] overall) but well worth the time and exercise. The weather was beautiful and clear which from what I understand isn't always the case.

"Not at all like the pictures"
I was disappointed with the hotel. Looked nothing like the pictures. Not sure why they call it a cottage. It is really just a hotel room. Needs updating desperately.Genuine Expedia guest review
We stayed in the cottages and enjoyed it all! Really cool setting, very large room and everything was clean and kept up well! We did have to ask for towels after they took dirty ones but didn't leave clean ones, but no big deal! The complimentary breakfast was really really good! Cooked to order, lots of choices....and free!! yay!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
