"Photos better than reality"
Located adjacent to a cemetery, the rooms are pretty small, dated, and a little run down. Will not be staying there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"So-So / Meh"
We stayed here Memorial Day wknd 2014. Rate was definitely inflated for the holiday wknd and the hotel was very full. We had some seedy looking biker guys downstairs from us smoking pot all night and next to our car the next morning. Room was musty and smelly, but bed but comfortable. Good location in Pacific Grove - not by any restaurants, but close […] to the coast. But next time I go to Pacific Grove, I will try another hotel - I wouldn't stay here again.

Very basic room, disappointed that I had to call for room cleaning after placing the maid service sign on the door. Came back around 2:30 & the room had not been touched.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice location near beach"
Breakfast adequate. Hot foods were nice and hot. Breakfast staff not friendly, did not seem interested in guests. The room maids were very friendly and nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Outdated Rooms: old carpet, decor, & broken."
This our our 2nd visit to the lodge rooms in 6 years. NEGATIVES: For starters: the reception did not advise us of when breakfast time is open & where (we had to ask). The receptionist was not pleasant. She lacked customer service skills. i.e no smile, hesitant in doing her job while checking us in. Needed to ask manager for assistance on how we can […] pay cash for our visit w/ credit card on hold. We were assigned to Room 153: Same disgusting, old run down rooms. The bathroom doors wood is peeling, has water stains; tile is mildew discolored; the tub was dirty outside with dirt stains (the maid is not doing the job with pride); shower curtain is cheap, old, & ugly; the TV reception is lousy = fuzzy (all channels); the drapes are old, dirty , & ugly; the window coverings (blinds) are old, do not fit correctly in size, difficulty in opening & closing; the sliding glass door curtain has no rod to open drapes. Had to pull drapes with hands to open drapes (not good); Not enough AC plugs in the room for our laptop & cell phone chargers. The building is so old, the night stand/lamp cord had to stretch into a side wall plug. No plug directly behind night stand; the small refrigerator w/ ice tray was not cold enough to keep frozen items. we had to use REAL ICE to accommodate our needs. POSITIVES: the bed was very comfortable (great to sleep on) & the breakfast area was OK. SUGGESTIONS. Replace carpet(s), bathroom doors, furniture, window coverings, caulk & add AC outlets Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Grand View to the Cemetery"
We are not picky about the hotel room. The most important things for us - the price and location. It seemed that this place fit both our criteria. The Hotel is really close to the ocean and trails. The price was good, the hotel provided the breakfast. What else could you wish for? When we entered our room we saw the huge window, balcony door, and chairs […] outside. We went out to the balcony and found the graves just few steps away. There were no fence, plants - just "great" view. We are not superstitious people but this kind of neighborhood was horrible.

Tired, dated decor, mediocre breakfast. Tiny bars of soap. Soft, lumpy mattress. Whole complex could do with a major makeover.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good stay for the price"
The hot tub, pool, and breakfast were all lovely, and the room was nice, clean, and pretty open. It's a little rough around the edges, with some trim needing to be replaced around the bathroom, but I don't think it takes away from the quality of the stay at all. The bathrooms have been updated - I had read reviews that they were moldy but that was not […] the case! One thing to keep in mind is it is right next to a cemetery. I thought it would creep me out more than it did (we even had a balcony over the cemetery), but it was actually really peaceful (and quiet!). The hotel is right next to the lighthouse, an incredibly short drive from the aquarium, and a short walk from the beach. It's also really close to cute downtown Pacific Grove and downtown Monterey. One weird thing about our stay was instead of a box spring mattress for our king sized bed, they put two twin box springs underneath, so the bed was a little lop sided. Other than that we had a wonderful time! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, great staff"
The staff at this hotel are very friendly. The room could use some updating but was very clean, quiet and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was the same every day with scrambled eggs, toast, juice, cereal, apples, bananas, and hot oatmeal. A little boring but not bad compared to what you get elsewhere. I was in the Lodge which is the motel across […] the street from the cottages. Great location, very near the golf course and a short walk to the ocean. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just OK. Really bare bones."
We only stayed here one night. The room was really small. Not much in terms of amenities. Kind of a musty smell in our room and, incredibly, none of the windows even opened (with the exception of the bathroom window). There was a sliding glass door leading on to a patio area, but this door also did not have a screen. To mitigate the musty smell, we […] had to sleep all night with the sliding glass door open; something I would never do in a place other than Pacific Grove! The overall property was decent but it was not spectacular. For the price paid it was about right. There is a free breakfast but I prefer to eat in downtown Pacific Grove.

Nice and comfortable. Room didn't have a flat screen TV. Not a big deal, just a little surprised.Genuine Expedia guest review
It was a nice hotel older but clean. The pool was very small they should let you know it barely holds 5 people. The breakfast was good but could of used bacon or sausage. A little disappointing. Coffee was terrible. Great location. The sliding door in our room should be replaced. It was covered in some white film.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"nice hotel and close to the beach"
What I love about the whole weekend your really close to the (Beach, Golf course) The hotel is really clean and their staff are really nice. I plan on continuing coming to this hotel, I've been to other hotel in Monterey and their prices are alot higher.Genuine Expedia guest review
Beds were near the end of life, since they sagged and created some backache.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We were upgraded to a suite and loved it!"
We have never stayed here before, but highly recommend it! The suite was roomy and the bed was very comfortable (not too soft). There was a jacuzzi tub, as well. Not much view from the room, as trucks were parked right outside our window. But the food made up for that! The home cooked meals, made to order, were generous and the food was excellent! The […] best breakfast included in a room we've ever stayed in (and that's a lot!). The afternoon hors d'oeuvres and wine hour became our dinner! Really a nice selection of wines and munchies, including small crab cakes one night and clam chowder another night. The staff are superb. Really attentive and professional. We'll definitely return here!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Do not stay anywhere but the suites section!"
We have stayed here previously (in suites section) many years ago and loved it. Went to Monterey over Easter Weekend and wanted to stay here again. Made a reservation without asking for a suite and when we checked in were directed to the "motel" side of the Lodge. Our room was on the bottom level (subterranean) with a sliding glass door that opened […] out onto a Cemetery! Literally there was a headstone 20 feet from our door. No mention of a cemetery next door on their website, when booking hotel, or when checking in. I refused to stay and demanded my money back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Great location. Loved the breakfast and complimentary wine and Hors De` ouvres in the afternoon. Wonderful place to stay, will come back hereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We really enjoyed staying here. Very nice setting. Could use some upgrades, but we didn't mind too much - very comfortable and cozy.Genuine Expedia guest review
We arrived for our stay on a Sunday, off season, and figured the hotel wouldn't be crowded, which it didn't seem to be. So why we were we given one of the bottom floor, what seemed like the basement. The room was a little underground and looking out the front window, you were below the parking lot. Room was ok but very stuffy and stale smelling. The […] hotel is on both sides of the street and other side was much nicer. I have stayed on that side and really enjoyed my room. The 'made to order breakfast', was scrambled eggs and some potatoes, oatmeal, toast, cereal and juice. The only chair in our room was so stained, neither of us sat in it. I was with a friend and told her how nice the place was and was very very disappointed. I doubt I'll stay there again. Very disappointing . Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Everything was very nice except for what was most important...a good mattress.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I have stayed at this hotel before and would definitely stay there again. The location is great! You can easily walk to the lighthouse and ocean. We stayed in a second-story room overlooking the cemetery and had a slight view of the ocean and saw many deer. The rooms need some updating. My bathroom had some mold along the tub, there was no screen door […] on sliding door, and it looked like an animal chewed off part of the trim in the bathroom. With that being said, the location is good and the rooms have always been clean. I would love a better paint color and get rid of that awful picture of the bed, but these are just minor things. If you book early, I have always found a great deal for this hotel. Also, the refrigerator is quite large and comes in handy. Many photo opportunities close by (within walking distance if you like).

"Great location and staff."
We have stayed at the Inn annually since 1998 and always enjoy our stay. The location cannot be beat. The staff is always friendly and efficient. The rooms are large and clean. We love our stays here.Genuine Expedia guest review

Overall excellent value, but was charged walk-up rates on extra night.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This place is a dump"
The sliding glass doors in each room were so full of condensation we could not see through them. Drapes were old and had holes in them. Old TVs (not the flat screens shown on the web site), they did a very bad job repainting the room, pillows were old and smelled bad, and on and on. When I complained to the desk host I was told they were in the process […] of remolding, but he did not offer us a different room, Spend a little more money and stay at another hotel.

"Nice hotel. Close to shops and beach"
Had good time. Had good night and confortable sleep. Friendly staff. Carpet needed a little cleaningGenuine Expedia guest review
The women who wait on us at the front desk have not been friendly for the last couple of years. Other than that and the fact that our toilet wouldn't flush with the shower on, and by the end of the 3 day stay, wouldn't flush at all, it was a great stay. We usually stay her at least once a year. The walk to the beach is just challenging enough. The deer […] are a special treat. The breakfasts and evening snacks are good. It is quiet and we love it. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The bed was to hard for my comfort. The room and bed were very clean. I just cannot take a hard bed. The people in the room above us had a child or children the jump and pounded on the floor and woke us up. We called down to the desk clerk 3 times plus I personally told them of the problem. Finally, they contacted the people and the noise ceased.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location is very nice, however, the facility itself needed some work (i.e. paint, wear and tear, landscaping, etc.). The breakfast was fine, but did not include bagels, english muffins or waffles. I don't think we'd choose to stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Pacific Grove Tranquility"
Nice location near Pebble Beach for taking long leisurely strolls along 17-mile drive. Pacific Grove hasn't changed much and that's why this was such a perfect little getaway. An unexpected (but welcome) full breakfast in the dining area next to the pool started me off on the right foot for the day's hiking around the greater Monterey Bay area. Loved […] the accessibility, quiet, and comfortable accommodations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Loved it. Everything was great."
Friendly lovely place with great cottages and great food.Genuine Expedia guest review
So disappointed! We got what they called was an "upgrade"! We were so disappointed with this stay! First of there were nails sticking up on the tack strip and both of us stepped on them. We asked for a extra bed for our grandson and they gave us a dirty blanket and dirty sheets! The curtains didn't close at night and had all the lights from across the […] way shining in our room all night. When we went to eat breakfast the eggs were running and the toaster looked like it came from the Goodwill and did not work! Needless to say we will not return to this awful place.

"Nice hotel great location"
The hotel was in a great location. It was a nice walk into town for dinner or down to the beach. We rode our bikes on 17 mile drive and also into Monterey and the bike path was just down the hill.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Decent hotel near beaches"
We stayed at this hotel for two nights. Our experiences with the staff were limited, but all quite pleasant. The maid service was very discreet and our room was left in top shape. The hotel has the option of refusing new linens/towels which was a nice earth friendly option for multi-night guests. There is a cemetery behind the hotel, but that didn't […] bother us. A lighthouse is just a short walk away and a beach not much farther from it. The hotel was in nice shape with wood panels and an elegant fireplace, but the linens and curtains seemed dated. Regardless, we would stay here again. It was a nice, quiet place. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
When you look at the pictures it looks beautiful ...for the price we paid.. Our room was dirty, the carpets were FILTHY, and pieces of the wall were coming off and the decoration was horrible. But supposedly there going to remodel it so I'm sure once that is done it will be nicer.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Quiet Spring Break"
Very pleasant location - At the end of Lighthouse Road. Hot tub was great and the kids liked the pool. Quiet room and would definitely stay again.Genuine Expedia guest review
We was on bottom floor and the glass door could be opened from the outside even so it was locked. I told the front desk and nothing was done about it. We had to haul our stuff around for the weekend because we was afraid that it would get stolen. The toilet was clogged and we had to mess with it every time we used the bathroom. Front desk was not to […] concerned about any of our issues. Breakfast at the place was free but gave me stomach issues. Would not recommend this place. Advertised heated pool..........pool was NOT heated. I was told we would have 2 queen size beds.............it was twin size beds. On Monday morning they started working on the roof right across from us.........................great way to spend our weekend..........we could not even sleep in...too much noise.

"Not Kept UP...Too much $ for what you get!"
Apparently this hotel was recently bought and is going to go through renovations. However, they still charge the same amount. It was WAY overpriced. Not clean. There is mildewy squares in the bathroom and LOTS of dirt in the corner. The surrounding area needs mowing. It is interesting enough that there's a graveyard there. When we were there 7 years […] ago, I loved the view, but now it is all gross and grown up. It should not be the same price if it is a wreck. The food area is gross. The pool was NOT heated at the time. WHY do they not give us a discount. We couldn't even go in and use the pool. The food is rather stale, and no one ever comes and cleans off the tables. It is just nasty in there. My son wouldn't eat there after day one. I really wish the price was lowered for such poor quality. Like around the walkways there are just these mud areas surrounding the walkway. Just a disappointment. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I was really satisfied with my stay. The only thing I had a problem with, is the late check-in time. I have two small children that were exhausted from traveling all day. And I wasn't able to get my room until 4. Some of the other hotels I have stayed at before allowed me to check in a lot earlier.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice comfortable rooms at a great price."
Nice rooms 1/2 block walk to beach. Cannery Row and Monterey Fishermans Wharf less than 15 minute ride. Carmel less than 20 minutes away (less than 1 hour if you take 17 mile drive). Nice resort great for the whole family or for a couple who want to get away from it all. Only minus is cemetery across the street from the cabins. Just dont pay it any […] attention. I am in a wheelchair and the resort was user friendly for me. Been to Pacific Grove several times and to me this is the nicest place we've stayed at. In addition, resort offers great options for breakfast. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
