"Excellent value for the price"
The Sea Breeze in is a clean, well maintained motel in Pacific Grove. The Inn consists of both cottages and lodge rooms which are decent sized and well equipped. Relatively, speaking for the price paid, its was better than most other hotels that I have stayed at in that price class. While I didn't eat breakfast there I did note that the continental breakfast selection was pretty meager (coffee, juice, some muffins) and the area where it was served was very small.

"Construction noise"
They are building a new addition and the first room they put me in was right next to the construction site and had a trailer of construction waste parked outside the window. The next room was a few doors down but since it is on the first floor and there were no sheers or blinds I had to close the blackout drapes for privacy and so ended up in a cave-like room. Also had to ask for housekeeping to come back and finish cleaning the bathroom floor and removing crumbs from the chair. There is also a stop on the hot water in the shower so I got a tepid shower each morning. Would recommend you bring your own pillow as theirs are hard as rocks. Because of the king bed, the nightstand blocked the bathroom door so it couldn't be opened all the way. Not my best motel experience even for the discounted rate.

"We had a great time"
We went to Pacific Grove for a little getaway while the family was on winter break. My kids were back from school for a visit. We decided on the Sea Breeze because of the location. When we arrived the staff was very friendly and the room was very cozy. We all slept very well. The area is quiet. The ocean is about 3 blocks away from the hotel so at night you can hear the waves. We visited several local attractions. The hotel is centrally located between Monterey and Carmel so it was perfect for us. My family really enjoyed our time on the Peninsula. We will be back to the Sea Breeze on our next escape.

I was there for a business meeting and to relax a bit. The rooms have complimentary wireless internet, which was really appreciated. The rooms are more a boutique style but as a business traveler I found it to be quite comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful with any additional things I needed. The property was quiet and well taken care of.

"Old Town Charm"
The old town charm of Pacific Grove is a treat. The Sea Breeze Inn really fits in well with this charm. Upon check in and check out the staff was really friendly and accommodating. The room is quaint and cozy. All hotel room doors open to the outside. We were lucky enough to get upgraded to a cottage. These rooms are great. You do not share a wall with anyone. This was a great unexpected surprise. The cottage was clean and well appointed. The Sea Breeze is close to all the man attractions. We loved our getaway to Pacific Grove.

"Updated rooms, charming location"
We stayed in mid-November. This inn is within walking distance of the beach and the Monarch Sanctuary. It is a little odd with two locations across the street from each other, but it was not inconvenient. We enjoyed the complimentary coffee and continental breakfast, sat outside each morning and watched the hummingbirds. One morning we even saw deer! At the time we were there, work was being done on the grassy area across from our room. It was not a pretty sight, but we weren't bothered too much because we didn't spend the days in our room! Too much to see and do in this area. I liked the updates to the room: new carpet, new paint, newer light fixtures, newer-style bed. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom sink area was a little cramped: we had to switch the plugs for the hair dryer and the coffee maker, and the mini-microwave took up almost all the counter space. Overall, a pleasant, comfortable room, and good location. It has all the amenities I want in a room, and has been updated. (It's not new, and wasn't stripped down and completely remodeled, so don't expect everything is new.)

"Cute, Affordable, Great location Inn"
This motel style Inn was good for the price. Accommodating staff should you have an issue. Cute decor, nice fire-pit on grounds, very comfy bed-super clean bedding as have OCD for cleanliness. Got a king bed with kitchen-window did not lock as it doesn't even fit-no where for lock to slide into! Kitchen sink could use some TLC, it's cheap to do so I don't understand the owners and/or maintenance. Small things go a long way! Otherwise, no issues. Muffins, juice, coffee in the morning. For the price, don't expect anything else but it's enough to get you going.

It looks like an old motor inn on the outside but inside the room was very clean and comfortable with the "upgrades" that everyone likes. We were in a complex across the street from the Sea Breeze. It is situated in a mostly residential area but is a very short drive to downtown Pacific Grove (which had some great little restaurants) , the beach, the Aquarium, the 17 mile drive. Reasonable price, nothing fancy but that is fine with me when I am seeing the sights.

"Staff is super friendly and helpful!"
We arrived late at night becasue we had a long drive and I knew the office closed at 10:00pm. I called beforehand. When we got to the hotel we rang the night auditor from the phone provided outside the hotel. They promptly came to the office and checked us in. They did not act like it was a bother at all that we woke them up at 2:00am. The next day we spoke to a young lady at the front desk and she gave us many recommendations for restaurants and activities. We did not get to do them al but it was nice to have pleasant and knowledable people to deal with. The room and grounds were beautiful!

"Needs Upgrading but Nice Location"
Only a short walk to Asilomar Beach - Easy location to get to Carmel and Monterey and Point Lobos Reserve which is well worth visiting to see the beautiful coast on a sunny day. Surprisingly, there was lack of security. Our sliding windows were all left open upon our return. I can see airing out when guests have checked out, but not when personal belongings are still in hotel. Also, deadbolt could not lock from outside, but only from inside. This is a ground level hotel which means anyone can walk in through window. No curtain by sink window, therefore daylight shines in very early - no sleeping in for those who are sensitive to light. Windows and sink/bathroom area floors need upgrading. A bit healthier breakfast of yogurt and bowl of fruit would be nice. Try not to book for Friday and Saturday nights as price is about double and book early. We reserved about 3 weeks prior which was not early enough to get better deal.

"Needs Price Reduction"
Below average. All of 24 tv stations; slightly awkward parking; in agreement with previous reviews, a quite limited breakfast? selection; finally, wouldn't you think they could put a soap dish in the shower? All in all, not terrible, but about 50% overpriced.

"Chilly stay."
Room was very clean but our heater was not connected which we found out after office closed. A space heater was delivered but without a thermostat I had to get up twice to turn it off and then later back on. Also the bed was too firm. Sea Breeze offered $10 credit for the inconvenience which seemed meager to me. Hotels.com agreed and supplemented another $40 voucher. I doubt we will use the voucher at Sea Breeze again.

"Not what we expected"
The hotel was disappointing. In terms of cleanliness and staff, it was fine - no issues there. But the room itself was not what we expected based on the photos/price. It smelled a bit, and overall was not a place we wanted to spend any time other than to sleep. I would NEVER pay $250/night for this hotel again... I'd put it at around $100/night. It's basically a place to sleep, but other than that it offers no unique experience.

"Leaves a bit to be desired"
The room was large, freshly painted, and generally clean. The bed was very comfortable. That was the good stuff. bad stuff - only one chair in the room, no tables,(my wife and I like to play games, there was no way to do that due to lacking furniture) a very small, very cheap dresser in the room. Our room was located right next to the laundry room, we could not open the windows in the dressing area or bathroom due to the noise, heat coming from the vents, and the excessive lint. (it looked like there blown in insulation out the windows due to lack of good filtering) They also did laundry until a little after 10pm and started again at 7:30am. The spa,the fire pit, and the breakfast were across (a very wide) street, no way we could use those as we have some personal mobility issues. When we noted these items to the clerk, she shrugged and said, yes, they are renovating rooms and adding more furniture, but I should write on the comment form which was in our room, oops it was missing. This was a Wednesday night, they were not booked, not sure why we got such a poor room location and lack of furniture.

"Nice location; Needs Renovation"
Overall I would not recommend this hotel to a friend. It wasn't terrible but definitely not worth the cost. We wanted to spend a week in Pacific Grove but didn't look for lodging until the "last minute." Sea Breeze one the only place with any availability which also accepted dogs. The "king bed" room was tiny. My wife was bit by an insect the 2nd night, while sleeping in the bed. I don't necessarily blame the hotel but it happened. The windows and doors were not well insulated and needed work. I suspect bugs and other vermin have easy entrance/egress from these units. The sink stunk of foul odors. It really smelled awful. The cleaning staff was not very competent, albiet nice. Their attention to detail was very lacking. One day I noticed a cart left out in front of a unit and a crow (bird) was hopping around on it and picking food out of a trash bag and tossing towels around. Our unit featured paper thin walls and constant noise from the laundry, which was next to us. Also, I could see out the window that the laundry room was not properly vented, resulting in lint being blown all over between the units, including into our unit. No air conditioner. Neighbors were smoking in the room and in front of it. The fixtures and plumbing were all loose and in need of repair. TV featured no movie channels and the entry level tv was not fully featured with inputs and thus we could not hook up the DVD player we brough

"Excellent for the price."
We were slightly concerned after reading some of the reviews and with the two star rating....the staff at the front desk was very friendly and accommodating. The room was a nice size and had a small fridge and micro which was nice. The bathroom was spacious and very clean! The room appeared and smelled clean and the bed was much more comfy than you'd expect at a two star......the hot tub could be a little cleaner, but no other complaints...would love for them to have little flavored creamers for the coffee:) . For the price and the location it was perfect....we thought about staying at a pricier hotel in town but decided to free up the extra money and do activities In Monterey ...... Sooooo glad we did. Would definitely recommend this room for the value.

I was upgraded to a cottage from the room I booked on Hotels.com. The cottages are in the back and are very quiet and very clean. Checking in and out was very easy. The Sea Breeze looks very ordinary from the street but is surprisingly unordinary. The hotel is a short distance from the beach where you can sit and enjoy the negative ions, and short distance from downtown Pacific Grove.. I was visiting a sick friend this time but will return with my wife for a quick getaway soon.
