The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The bed was very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
The first room we were given had not been clean yet. The shower was leaking so mold was growing in the closet. Bugs in the room. A HUGE spider crawled across my neck as I was laying in bed. Crib had dirty sheets on it. Right next door to a cemetery. When we told the front desk, we barely got an "I'm sorry."Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Great place for a family to take in Monterey Bay area sights.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Dont waste your money. Stay El"
We checked out the reviews and this hotel had the best ones but after staying there don't waste your money. They use some kind of nasty smelling fragrance that gives you a headache as soon as you walk in the room. It only had 1 lamp in the room and I could hardly see anything. Our main thing is clean. The beds and sheets didn't feel clean at all. It […] looks like a nice hotel in the pictures but don't let the pictures fool you. Since we booked through hotels.com we couldnt get a refund and go elsewhere. I've stayed in a lot better hotels for cheaper. Very dissapointed In spending my money on this place. It felt like a big waste of money. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Stayed in the cottages. Very peaceful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Area is beautiful! Hotel is just ok. Needs some updates.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Expected better for the $! Old & crusty :("
Bed & linen torn, old furniture - needs serious updating & cleanup! Very dissatisfied, especially for $170/night at a discount.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel with small imperfections"
The hotel on the outside is slightly dated but the room was nice. It appears there was recent work done to update the room and while a good attempt the room didn't feel complete. The area is very quiet and a short drive to many local tourist spots. Overall I was happy enough I would stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel in quiet location."
Overall experience was fine. Normal check in is 4p.m. however our room was not ready til 5p.m..Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice place, poor communication for guests........."
Very nice rooms, but here is my complaint. I checked in, I had reservations, the Lady at the desk gave me info about the room, then I left and drove around for 5 minutes, wondering where the room was? Oh, it is down the street she tells me..........I say, thanks for not telling me! Next, I wake up the next morning, to little kids banging on doors […] at 6:30 a.m., their parents were MIA. Then I go to breakfast, on returning I see people going into a main room right by my room, it is breakfast! Evidently, that was written on something in my directions on receiving the room, but that is your idea of customer service? Make it clear! Reading minds is extra.........Also, the blinking lights in the bathroom were just irritating as hell!!!!!!!!!!1 Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This is the worst place I've stayed at in my adult life! I can only hope that if you do book here you ask to see the room before accepting it ( I know this is not possible when booking on line with a non refundable clause). I will say that when you pull into the parking lot of the lodge it is nice, peaceful and serene. I thought "this is great".......then […] there is the room.....I will start by giving the worst, Dirty Tile Floors (entry and bathroom), a huge 6' x 6' black stain on the brown carpet, the rest of the carpet was dirty enough that we wore socks when walking on it. The bathroom door and wooden window shutters had most of the varnish and stain peeling off them, chunks of wallboard and wood molding were knocked off. For the items that were acceptable but very unattractive, old drapes, bed spread, furniture, pictures, poor lighting, wallpaper and paint....this whole place needs a major makeover. Now for the good, I will say that for the bed not be a top of the line hotel bed it was very comfortable (and I'm very picky about a bed) and I did get a good night's sleep. I will Never stay at The Lighthouse again and will Never recommend it to Anyone! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Get out of Town!"
We loved this motel. It is close to a lighthouse and country club, so it is in a quiet area with lots of trees and lawns, but still near the ocean. Very peaceful and comfortable, and we parked right next to our room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Checked in and checked out"
Didn't end up staying. Checked in, walked to room and checked out. Cemetery out back door, dark, drab outdated rooms.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice atmosphere for a family gathering"
This place is in serious need of a remodel. Otherwise, it's a nice location and the staff is friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Only good thing is the location!!!"
The room was very unpleasant, it had an order that was overpowering, the carpets were gross, the bathtub was moldy, all the wood work looked like it was done by a two year old. The pool was nice but the hot tub was greenish and had a weird smell, the landscape was not kept up in the back, they only nice view was of the cemetary.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
An overnight stopover. Good for our needs, very expensive for the facilities but all Hotels in Monterrey are that price range during Summer weekends!! Overall pretty decent, good sized room, basic, rusty bathroom, broken blinds, basic breakfast. Great location for walks and bike rides. Rooms back into into cemetery, not for the faint of heart:)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our stay at Lighthouse Lodge"
This was our second time staying at the lodge in number of years. We found our room neat and clean with plenty of space (it was the suite I believe) and a comfortable bed. The complementary chef-prepared breakfast had a variety of breakfast items and was tasty. Overall, our stay was very pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Green spa, good breakfast, comfortable bed."
I got the king sized room because I had a coupon code. Most of the king sized rooms are upstairs from what I understand, which makes me happy. I always want to stay on the highest floor. My view was of trees and the neighboring cemetery. The beach and a golf course were both a walk away. The breakfast was good enough for the price point. There were […] eggs, And eggs with ham and veggies. There was a small selection of cereal, country potatoes (cubed and deep fried potatoes). I was getting over tonsilitis, so I only had the eggs, which were pretty good. I should have grabbed a salt packet. However, the pool and spa are severely under serviced. I don't know if they don't have a pool sweep, but it doesn't appear that the pool is swept or skimmed daily. The spa was green, but it didn't look green from algae. It seems like a weird color choice, but I'm not an expert on pools and spas, so I don't know for sure why it was green. It was heated and I did get into it (not the pool, Not warm enough outside). I dunno if it was subconscious, but the water had a weird smell, so I wasn't there long. The room was decently spacious. The bed was comfy. There was a microwave and a mini fridge in the room. The tv is straight from the 80's or 90's. It's been a while since I've watched a non -hdtv. It was bizarre. And the cable runs east coast time. The hotel itself still uses regular keys, which I prefer. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The rooms were horrible. We had 2 rooms. The first room had mold everywhere. The second room had a horrible smell.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice but could use new decor"
Stayed here in business. A bit of an issue checking in( they did not get my hotels.com reservation) but were very nice and eventually got it figured out) room was comfy, but decor a bit tired. No AC in upstairs room, but was ok with sliding door to balcony open. Nice fireplace in room, but it was too warm to light if when I stayed, great location, short […] walk to the beach!

"A Tired Lighthouse"
Very worn property with a small pool and a run of mill breakfast in a small room..poor quality disposables for plates and the cheapest cutlery good for infants..had to clean our table..certainly not worth the rates paid. Needs a major refurb.. Very disappointed!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic facilities, room was run down."
Basic facilities, the building is adjacent to a cemetery. The staff was ok.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very out dated"
Where do I began. The hotel need a lots of work it's not well kept at all . The rooms was not that clean. The curtains was really dirty. The balcony they did not clean. The bathroom mildew around the shower. The cottage is the place to stay I should have list to the other reviews I read and not stay here. I was expecting the breakfast to be good from […] reading the reviews but it was not good at all. I later found out the best breakfast they give at the cottage. Also very miss leading about the wine in the After noon. Later they said it was only for the cottage. They put the blame booking agents for saying wine come with our room in the evening and it does not. I was very un happy with this place. I would not recommend this place at all.

"Lovely Pacific Grove Stay"
The Lighthouse Lodge and Cottages were clean, comfortable and a stones throw from the beach. Our scenic drive to Cannery Row was only 8 minutes and the 17 mile drive entrance is only a few blocks away. The area is very quiet and the room was very roomy for a family of four. I will stay there again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to the ocean"
Overall we had a nice stay. Cannot figure out why the Sunday and Monday rate was higher than the Saturday rate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Yearly Family vacation"
We always go to Monterey during the summer. We love staying at lighthouse, and stay at their suite.its right next to a cementary, golf course and the beach, wallking distance. So beautiful, when you wake up in the morning, you see deers . Their staff is friendly and accomodating. Breakfast is good, eggs, potatoes, oatmeal, cereals, fruit, etc...and […] its free. I gave 4 stars on room condition because carpet and couch needs updating but other than that i highly recommend Lighthouse.:) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Nice location. Just down the street from Monarch butterfly preserve and across street from lighthouse.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good and bad"
Great location and friendly staff. However, we stayed in the cottage portion. There are skylights everywhere in the room, including 2 directly over the bed. They pretty much make it impossible to sleep in. Also, the only shower in the room is in the actual bedroom, not in the bathroom. The shower portion didn't work and the bath was questionable in […] that it was freezing or scalding. Breakfast was good. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
When I first arrived at the hotel I thought the location was great. The location turned out to be the only good thing about our stay. It took us a half hour to check in because there was only one person working at the front desk. This one person was in charge of checking guests in, answering phone calls and assisting guests who were already checked […] in. When we finally were able to check into the room I immediately noticed the room smelled bad, dresser drawers were missing handles, the closet door was not on its track, there was mold in the shower, and the mattress was horribly uncomfortable. The room was not cared for whatsoever. When we went to the front desk with our concerns we were told that all of the rooms were in the "same condition" and they were unable to do anything about it. Overall, I was very displeased this hotel. The rooms were not clean, in need of renovations and the hotel staff was not very accommodating. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

First room we checked into had a section of the bathroom wall that was deteriorating. Bathroom interior door was also old looking. I asked if any of the other rooms were in better condition. I was given another room but it had a musty smell so decided to keep first rm. They offered a choice between 2 other rms. One was slightly better so we moved.

Outstanding staff. Room was a little "tired". Needed new carpeting; bad stains as you walked in the room. Bed was very comfortable.

"Pacific Grove hideaway"
Nice quiet place close to my dad's home made our visit easyGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I would not stay here again! When we first walked in, our room smelled funny and there were stains all over the carpet. As we looked around more, the bedspread was ripped, and the screen to our balcony door was off the track and all ripped up. Everything was very outdated and not clean. We actually switched hotels after the first night because it was […] so bad. Not an enjoyable stay! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great family getaway"
We had a great stay here. I loved that our walk out porch welcomed deer and a nice view of the ocean nearby! Would definitely stay again! We also loved the included breakfast and wine reception for cottage side guests.Genuine Expedia guest review
Cute little lodge--really enjoyed the large, soft, king bed and fireplace, and the full breakfast (with scrambled eggs!) saved us a bundle in Monterey! But the toilet was broken, even after it was supposedly "fixed," which is the one reason I was staying in a hotel rather than with my daughter who lives on a sailboat. We also tried to order a movie […] and the connection was down both nights. Otherwise, front desk service was exceptional and you can't beat the location for the value. Oh yeah, hot tub was wonderful after a day at the beach:) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

We will return for sure. Cozy room in a quiet area. Our only negative about the room was a dirty carpet. Lovely breakfast and very nice afternoon wine and appetizers after check in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"TLC needed ASAP!"
I was highly disappointed with the condition of this property. The rooms were filthy, the carpets were disgustingly dirty and stained, as was the bedspread. The sheets did not fit the bed and kept coming off. There was mold and milder on every corner of the room and there was a huge open rotting hole by the shower on the baseboard. The toilet kept flushing […] by itself all night. The remote was old, the the TV was ancient, the room smelled musty, the towels were thin and ragged and only two were delivered each day. The balcony was dirty and mold was covering the railings and the chairs were sticky and unusable. You are given keys to enter your room. Just keys. No keychain or key holder, just loose keys. Very hard to keep track of. The front door lock from the inside did not work and the sliding glass door did not work. The highly advertised heated pool was NOT heated, which was a huge upset for me. This property is is very very bad disrepair and I am BEYOND disappointed, as this was an extremely special and important trip for us and was not easy to pay for. it is our our only vacation this summer and it was ruined by this stay.. The front office ladies were unreceptive to any of our complaints. Hotels.com needs to downgrade this property to a one star, or disassociate themselves from this place altogether. It truly is an awful place to stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The room - seen better days, fireplace was nice. A vintage TV in a vintage cabinet - how nostalgic! Once you adjust to a grainy picture, it kind if reminds you about your childhood. American(?) breakfast left us buffed and underwhelmed. The was syrop but no pancakes or waffles. Eggs were horrible, no bagels. I mean how difficult to get bagels? And the […] only choice of fruit were green apples. So what was the most memorable? The small, dingy, seagul populated, filled with rubber hose, ice cold pool. It was literally ice cold and served perfectly as the cold part of hot-cold spa treatment. Kids jumped from jacuzzi into the pool and took bets who can stay longer. Did I forget to mention we only got 2 old towels for 3 people as they were short? And the pool shower only had cold water to complement the pool. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would not stay here again"
Last room left apparently and in busy June, it was priced at probably at least double what they usually get for that room. This place spans two properties, one rather grand looking with large pillars and the other on the other side of the road less so. Both properties looked tired and dated. The room we were given was a good size, had a picture of […] a naked lady above the bed (seemed odd to me), the mirror door on the closet had a large crack across it. The old furniture was all scratched and the desk had missing veneer and a screw poking out where a handle once was. This was not, I'm my opinion, a two hundred dollar a night room! I asked for another room and they said they were fully booked, so I asked for a refund which they said they would process (but apparently didn't follow-up on. I have been in touch with hotels.com seeking a refund for a room I was in for less than thirty minutes. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Disappointing, Run-down, Overpriced"
We were very disappointed to spend $200 plus per night for such a poorly maintained motel. The reality did not line up with the pics. The furnishings were ridiculously old. An old, dirty looking chair with big ole cigarette burn greeted us as we entered our room.Genuine Expedia guest review
This place is cute, clean, HUGE rooms, great amenities, friendly staff, and great breakfast. Our room was sooo big I loved it and it had a nice little balcony where we would watch deer below. Couldn't really see the ocean from our room, but we could hear it. Comfy beds, good coffee maker, fridge and microwave. I will probably being staying here again. […] Really, there was nothing from my perspective that needed to be improved. P.S. they fold the T.P. up all fancy in the bathroom, it was adorable. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Accomodations were great, within walking distance of the ocean, went along 17 mile drive, Carmel Mission, hiked Point Lobos, went to the beach boardwalk in Santa Cruz, spent six hours at the Montery Bay Aquarium. Walked along the beach and Cannery Row. Lovely Holiday!Genuine Expedia guest review

"Our third stay"
We asked for specific rooms and staff delivered without delay. Our family stayed in the lodge over looking the beautiful cemetery w/ deer wandering thru it and the lighthouse just beyond. Breakfast was hot & filling. Best hot tub because of it's size (fits 10). My bed needs to be replaced because the side towards night stand was broken down. The lodge […] is feeling its age but we still love it. Easy location for activities. I wish the new parent Co. would bring back the afternoon bar-b-q. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
