"Nice hotel for a couple of nights"
This place is somewhat funky and the outside looks a little rundown. The rooms, however, are very nice. Our room was clean, with newer amenities, a fireplace, and a small kitchenette. I recommend this for a short stay near Monterey.

"Not bad for what you pay for"
Great hotel for what you pay for. Great access to the beach, less than a 10 minute walk away, and a short drive away from downtown. Good coffee and freshly squeezed OJ served in the morning a few with other things. Only complaint is that walls are pretty thin and you can hear your neighbors.

"Family Vacation"
Our family came to visit the Monterey Peninsula over our winter break. We found the Sea Breeze online and thought it looked like a perfect place to stay. We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived all the photos we saw online we accurate. It was a quick drive to the Aquarium and our kids loved it.

We came here for a much needed getaway. My parents have been ill. It was a good time for my husband and the kids to get away. We needed this big time! The Sea Breeze was wonderful. The staff makes you feel at home. The rooms are clean and upkept nicley. They have an outdoor pool and jacuzzi. The pool is not heated. We were cold but the kids did not care. We left feeling better.

"Sea Breeze Inn & Cottage"
Stayed at this hotel on a weekend road trip to Big Sur, CA. Hotel was cozy & comfortable. Close to the ocean (could actually hear the roaring waves outside the room). Room was definitely clean, but had an older feel to the place. Walls were a bit thin, and the breakfast consisted only of coffee & half-muffins. I would stay there again when I'm back in the Monterey area.

Picked this hotel without previous knowledge of its amenities. We were pleasantly surprised. The cottages are very quaint - a little small but since we are rarely in the room it was perfect for us. They are very dog, kid, and bike friendly. Close to all of the attractions but far enough away to get a good night's sleep. Check out the butterflies!

"Clean but tiny rooms, great location."
This pet friendly hotel is located within a walking distance from the Monarch Grove, the Asilomar beach and the golf course; a short drive from the hotel to the center of Pacific Grove with ocean promenade, the restaurants/shops and from the magnificent 17 Mile Drive. Our room was so tiny, it shouldn't really be recommended for a couple with a large dog (like our family). The bed was so high, one must climb to the top, like a mountaineer. TV set was located even higher, just under the ceiling and on the left side from the bed, so watching TV wasn't the very best experience either. The staff was friendly, but the "continental breakfast" was kind of a joke: just coffee, muffins and orange juice. All in all - your average cheap, but clean place. Should be ideal for student (without dogs).

We stayed one night in the cottages and experienced many of the local tourist locations. The cottages them selves were in a nice area and we really enjoyed staying there. The best part was parking right in front of your room. I really enjoyed the ease of unloading belongings. The room inside was spacious and had a nice shower.

We had a wonderful escape to the Sea Breeze Inn and Cottages. This Inn is located about a quarter mile to the ocean. It was a perfect place to go for a run in the morning. You could watch the mystic fog drift off into the water. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff was very nice. Overall I had a wonderful experience here and will be back.

I visited the Sea Breeze with my family to visit the aquarium. We had an amazing time. We visited during the week so we got a great deal on our room. The hotel was better than we expected. The rooms are very clean and well maintained. Parking was easy. We were only two blocks to the ocean!! My kids and I liked walking down to the ocean. They serve a moderate but delicious contintental breakfast every morning. It was a great experience for our family. We will be back.

"Great location, helpful staff"
We recently stayed in one of the cottages for a total of 3 nights while visiting friends in Carmel. My dog isn't used to having neighbors all around him (as in traditional hotels), so he loved staying in the quiet cabin. Walking distance to the Point Pinos Lighthouse, beach, and short drive or bike ride to shops and restaurants.

What a nice little place in Pacific Grove. This is a great place to stay, it is very quiet and very quaint. It is on the older side like every other place in the area so this was not a big deal and the comfort level is a bit low but we did have a small love seat, which was nice. Stayed for 3 nights and never once had an issue with parking. All in all was a great stay, and would stay again.

our cottage was a pleasant surprise. It was well decorated in Tuscan elegant style with nice color walls and well furnished. Nice staff. iPhone GPS took us to another street a away from the actual hotel. The hotel address is 1100 Lighthouse and we were told because of a glitch we had to put in 1101 Lighthouse....then it took us to the hotel correctly. Other than that it was very nice!

The place was neat and clean, although hard to find even with GPS. The only problem is that breakfast starts at 8:00 a.m. and the breakfast room was closed and staff was late opening the office so if you have to leave early plan to skip breakfast and just drop the room keys in the drop box outside the office.

"Pacific Grove's best kept secret!"
My sister and I enjoyed our stay @ the Sea Breeze Inn. Part of the property consists of rows of adjoining cottages; we had separate rooms next to each other. It was very comfortable, very clean, and tucked back in a row of tall green trees. It had so much ambiance, so peaceful. I wish we had stayed here for 2 nights instead of staying at the Quality Inn in Monterey (Pacific Grove is about 2 miles away). There's a small street going into and out of Pacific Grove, lined with cool shops and restaurants. We stopped at a wonderful ice cream shop where the walls were lined with everything Beatles, which I loved. I'd definitely visit the cottages again, just loved it. VERY reasonable priced too!

"Cozy cottage"
The location is very convenient to the beach and it is easy to get downtown. Plenty of parking and easy to get in out of the area. We had a cottage with two rooms and three beds. The configuration worked out nicely for our family of four, however, the rooms are pretty tight. The bathroom, on the other hand, is so small you can hardly sit down. At 6 feet, I was barely able to sit without my knees touching the wall. We will probably try a different hotel the next time we are in the area.

We were locked in our room for 3 hours before they were able to fix the door to let us out. Missed our dinner appointment with our friends. We talked to the manager the next day about our experience and she didn't care to hear about it and said that we got the room at a low rate. The manager was vey rude. Also, the refrigerator didn't work and made noise all night long.

People in the front desk were quick and helpful - and you will find coffee and a muffin at front desk as well. Realistic people will find this to be good for the price.

"Sea Breeze Inn"
Pros: Location, spacious upstairs 2 queen bed room, clean room and bathroom. Cons: Only big muffins cut in half and pulp warm orange juice is the free breakfast located in the check in office. Unfortunately, the alarm clock in the vacant room next door went off at 7 AM so I wasn't thrilled about that. Parking was ok. Pool was located across the street at their sister hotel. I didn't take advantage of it. Bed in room was comfortable. Internet was free with log-in code. TV had plenty of channels. Inn offers a special discount for the aquarium if you are planning on visiting it (which I highly recommend, and to go when it first opens to avoid crowds). As for the location, you are pretty close to the lighthouse, famous drive and the aquarium. We did all of them and it was awesome! For a one night stay, it was nice. From the looks of the rooms below and around the property, they looked small; so be sure to ask for an upstairs room. Ours was #201, with plenty of windows, and lots of room to move around.

"Uncomfortable but clean"
Location is good, close to water and attractions. Cleanliness fine, but the floor is worn through, noise from the street is pronounced and you'll hear conversations through the thin walls. Breakfast consists of lots of sugary, fat sweet breads, orange juice and coffee with no protein sources, options for diabetics or gluten-intolerant. Bring your own food, coffee maker and coffee. Better to stay in a cottage far away from the street than one of the rooms. Better yet, find a higher quality lodge. You get what you pay for. Personnel are friendly but the motel itself desperately needs a huge facelift and better options for clientele. This one is bare bones. Ok if you're desperate for one night.
