"Carpet needs to be replaced badly."
over all clean room, but carpeting in very bad need of replacement. Family had to make sure and where slippers, shoes, or bottom of feet would become oily and black. Ceiling fan on automatic and would turn off after an hour of usage. room was hot and stuffy, and needed the ceiling fan to be on at all times when in the room.

"Surprised with what we paid"
We were surprised with our overall stay. Price was pretty cheap. Breakfast was good. It help to save us a little money. The coffee was great! Service was very friendly. The only thing I disliked was the carpet was dirty. Besides that we were surprisingly happy.

"Great Innkeepers"
I find this motel a good deal for the area. You can walk to many restaurants, etc. on Lighthouse and the 17 mile is drive nearby. The accommodations are basic but clean. Waffle breakfast with coffee and juices but no fresh fruit. Inn keepers are especially nice and helpful.

"On and Over the Hill"
I stayed here for 3 nights. The motel is a two story, outdoor access facility that has seen better days. It sits on top of the hill before you go down to the Asilomar and PG Golf Course sites so convenient to those. I'd ordered a queen room, and got a queen and a twin, never know why. The manager said he couldn't change it. The building is listing a bit downhill, there is a noticeable cant to the floor. You could see the plastic covers on the wall plates that were holding things together. The bathrooms have been renovated with nice tile yet the water pressure and temperature are moderate at best. There's a sign on the stairway leading to the second floor that says "this area is know to have cancer causing agents." The wifi worked fine. The check-in manager was rather dour. There is a breakfast, however it does not include any protein, just various kinds of waffles, Danish, and breads with cereals and a little fruit. The breakfast is set up in the lobby and then you go outside to the patio to eat. For three out of four mornings I was there, the breakfast was not open or set up by 7 am so it was too late for me. All of that said, it was convenient location, comfy bed, and great sleeping weather (not a function of the motel). Low cost, low return.

Although a bit noisy due to our room being next to the stairs the motel was nicely located in Pacific Grove, with easy access to much of the highlights of the Monterey Penisula.

"My opinion"
I thought the hotel was very nice. The front counter people were very friendly and my hotel room was very clean. It was suprisingly cheap for how close it was to the ocean and monterey bay aquarium. My only complaint is even though i already paid for my room, they took my debit card and charged it for another 130 ish dollars without telling me. The charge isnt supposed to go through but its still pending in my account 2 days later which means i cant spend that money.

"Convenient Pacific Grove motel"
To call this a hotel is optimistic. It is an old-fashioned motel with tiny rooms, a tiny parking lot, a tiny breakfast room serving a tiny breakfast. It was convenient, and had it been considerably cheaper, I would have considered it a find. However, this little motel is giving itself airs, calling itself a hotel and charging hotel prices.

The facility was very old and run down. Their were some modernized features such as the bath in our room and newer carpets. The drapes, lamps, chairs, linens, were all in very poor condition. The common areas were dirty and furnishings dirty and very, very worn. I would not recommend this motel even if traveling on a tight budget

"Better customer service"
The night shift lady needs better customer service. We needed more bags and shower caps and she tells us we have one already. Uhm.. I need EXTRA bags please, meaning more. I don't like her tone when she speaks with customers, I work in retail and her customer service skills needs some polishing. What a cheap hotel.

"A one-star property at a three-star price."
This room had no phone. The heater was probably from the '50's or '60's at best. Couldn't believe they charged over $100 for this room. A $40 Motel Six would be a better deal by far.

Floor was tilted, towels were about a dozens washes past needing replacement. The manager is nice and pleasant. The area is beautiful. I'm not sure how Clarion certified them, but it is just dated. If you're looking to go back to what traveling was like in the 1960's - here's your motel.

"Nice location, friendly staff - but overpriced"
The staff was very friendly, the location is fantastic (upper floor rooms can see the ocean) and you can tell the management has put a lot of attention on creating a comfortable experience for guests. However, the quality of the furnishings just doesn't justify a $180 price point under any circumstances - furniture is outdated or needs maintenance, telephone didn't work, etc. If it was under $130 I would definitely stay there again.

"A "Basic Motel" Gem"
This old motel has been well maintained. The rooms are nice and clean although a little dated. Service was great and it is located in walker's heaven. Walk one way to downtown and the other to Asilomar Beach. If you need more than this, then go to Monterey and spend twice as much for a similar room.

Wilkie's was a Cute and quiet motel for the price. Right smack dab in the middle of the best that the Monterey Bay has to offer without having to deal with the crowds and prices of Montery or Carmel. The desk person was friendly and gave us a great resturant recommendation. The rooms could use some updating but were clean. My wife and I were pleasantly surprised and would definatly stay at Wilkie's again.

"Peaceful hotel in coastal oasis"
We really enjoyed this hotel. It's located in a picturesque area with the Ocean being a walkable distance away. Really great for a morning/evening walk by the coast. Our room was large and well equipped. Coming from Europe and being pationate about my food I would recommend skipping breakfast as it's very basic and there really isn't a nice place to sit down and have it anyway so just grab a pastry and juice from a shop nearby and head to the coast.

"Conforme a la description"
La chambre est conforme aux photos du site. Malgré la deco ancienne, elles sont confortables et propres. L'hotel est calme et proche de l'ocean, parfait pour un jogging matinal. Le buffet au petit déjeuné est varié. Les moins: Il y a que 3 petites tables a l'exterieur du lobby pour le petit déjeuner sous une avancée de toit. (Pas pratique, pas confortable et froid). Les chambres ont une vue sur le parking et la route.

Lugnt läge på hotellet nära havet och rummet rent. Bra tryck i dusch och bra med varmvatten. Dåligt med belysning/ljussättning om man behöver sitta och jobba på rummet. Snabb incheckning om än inte väldigt engagerad. Frukosten sedvanlig amerikansk kontinental frukost, nivå ok men inte mer och ingen njutning direkt. Hade nog bott här igen vid framtida besök då hotellet var prisvärt.

Ett trevligt litet ställe i pacific grove. Vi stannade bara en natt på vår resa ner längs kusten, vi hade lite svårt att hitta dit pga det stod Clarion på skylten utanför och inte det namn det stod här på expedia. Men annars hade vi ingenting att anmärka på, litet fräscht och trevligt. Vi hade havsutsikt från vårt rum och det var relativt nära att promenera ner till hav och restauranger. Ät på Beach house om ni stannar i pacific grove, klart det bästa stället där!

Hotellet er særdeles godt beliggende i den stille ende af Monterey i grønne omgivelser. Komforten i værelserne var lidt i underkanten set i forhold til prisen. Der virkede f.eks. noget indelukket/fugtigt på værelset. Morgenmaden var fin, inkl. vafler man selv kunne bage. Servicen fra de ansatte absolut god.
