"Great Location-walk to the beach"
Beds were VERY comfortable...room was pretty darn nice for the price and location was perfect. My room had a fireplace but I didn't use it...just a quick one night stay but you won't be disapointed at this price it's a great dealGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"NICE hotel and near to beach"
clearn and small hotel in the forest ,it is quiet and national ,very niceGenuine Expedia guest review
The location in pacific grove, proximity to the trails near spanish bay, and pet friendly nature were the main reasons we booked this hotel. However, I found the reception to be unacceptable considering the price. I was confronted concerning use of the ice machine for which the owner of the hotel 2 hours after check in. To frame this the ice machine […] is located in a common area of the parking lot. At first he did not think I was a guest, even though he checked me in himself. At that point I told him I was indeed a guest. Next he said other guests were complaining about the noise I was making, which was bogus because he was outside walking in the parking lot when we parked our car and never once left eyesight of me, not talking to another guest once. I hate to say this place needs some serious help in the service department. Don't expect much if you book here. The 'continental breakfast' is pretty standard, cheap oj, coffee, and pre packed pastries. You have to wait until 8am to get them. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not What I Expected"
Room was clean. Comfortable. Had small outdoor area with firepit. However, the pictures showed the hotel to be on the water. I thought the area was less populated. I was surprised the hotel was int he middle of a residential area and not at all near the ocean. Room was right on the parking lot. Quiet area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"it is a good choice"
the hotel is quite near the seaside,it is a good choice for short trip.Genuine Expedia guest review
"THERE IS NO AIR CONDITIONING!!! I repeat NO AIR."
My girlfriends and I were on a road trip and booked this room as our first stop. We only needed a place to crash for 1 night but expected a little more. Away from most things in the peninsula. No restaurants within walking distance. We called the front desk to ask why there was no air conditioning and they said they've never had it even though that […] isn't advertised ANYWHERE and they brought us a box fan. Are you kidding me? And then we asked why the wifi wasn't working and they said they would reboot the router. It was in and out our entire stay. It was only a place to stop for the night but I wouldn't do it again. Plenty of better options around. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great location, great value."
Deer Haven Inn is a pleasant departure from the chain hotels in the area, and way less expensive than the local B&Bs. It's reasonably priced, located in a quiet, mostly residential area away from the traffic and noise, and within a quick few minutes' walk to the beach. Our room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. The one drawback is the continental […] breakfast, which is pretty sad. Luckily that wasn't the reason for my stay, so it wasn't a major consideration for me. I highly recommend for anyone who isn't interested in frills but appreciates good value. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Close to everything you need to see in the area. Nice roomsGenuine Expedia guest review
mostly good….breakfast was meager and one of the beds was broken, sagged to the left…..ironing board was leaning on the wall because the screws had come out of the wall but the hanger was sitting in the holes giving the appearance that is was useful, luckily I noticed it before I placed the board on it…It was clean, friendly and close to where we were […] going.

"Not Terrib for Last Minute Deal"
Considering we were able to get the room last minute for less than $120, overall it wasn't so bad. The room itself was decent and the bed was comfortable. it was in a nice location very close to Monterey and Cannery Row. the bad points were the refrigerator was right at the foot of the bed in a cabinet and made noise all night long that kept us up. […] Also the cleanliness was questionable. We found several hairs on the sheets and the pillows and on the floors which made us question how clean the bathroom was. Worse than that was the smell of mold and mildew throughout the room especially in the bathroom where it just wreaked. If you are fine like us with bringing your own sheets and pillowcases and some cleaning supplies to make sure your room is clean, $120 or so a night for the room isn't so bad.

"Clean & Comfortable"
You can tell this is an older motel that has been renovated, but is still quite charming in a quiet neighborhood. Our room was very clean and comfortable, but could hear people upstairs walking around and flushing their toilet/running water, etc. Continental breakfast was nice; however, the area where it was located is so small everyone kept bumping […] into one another just to get their food.

"Very quiet location."
This was the third time my wife and I stayed here.. We have been coming to the Monterey area for 35 years now and this is one of the quietest places around.. Very nice place to stay for the money.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A week of sea creatures and coastal wonders"
Deer Haven Inn has comfortable beds, a nice TV, a decent bathroom and a fun gas fireplace. Wifi was efficient and the location to Asilomar Beach is outstanding. I would go back and repeat the whole vacation without hesitation.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great value, great location"
We stayed at the Deer Haven Inn for two nights in early June. The entire experience was wonderful. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. The room itself was very clean and comfortable. Loved the fireplace! We enjoyed walking to and dining at Fish Wife, which is nearby. Also, the location can't be beat. Enjoyed daily walks and a […] jog along the coast. The breakfast was really good and the outdoor seating was beautiful. I highly recommend the Deer Haven Inn! Can't wait to visit the California coast again, and stay at this Inn. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
This inn is located far off the busy roadways and within easy walking distance of a beautiful beach and tide pools. The rooms are clean, quiet, and appear to have been recently remodeled. The man at the front desk was very nice, and the morning breakfast items in the lobby were tasty.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Serene location near Asilomar."
Although I requested a pet friendly room and acknowledged the printed $25 pet fee, when we arrived the hotel staff said they were not notified that we were bringing a pet.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quit Place to Stay..."
We stayed here for my husbands birthday weekend with our two kids. We loved the neighborhood it was quiet and peaceful. Our room was kind of dated we did not get one of the rooms with the laminate floors. The continental breakfast could have a larger selection was not to impressed with it. Overall it was a good place to stay....Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great little inn"
Great location close to beautiful beach. Quiet residential neighborhood but close to tourist locations.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nicely remodeled room, great location"
This is the 3rd hotel we've tried in the Asilomar area and loved Deer Haven as well as the property behind it. Newly remodeled, quiet. Only drawbacks were a slight odor of a dog in room and the breakfast was not up to par compared to the Rosedale or Pacific Gardens Inn which are right around the corner. Would stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location, great value"
Lovely quiet neighborhood, minutes away from many attractions. Amo was especially helpful in a special request. Could have used breakfast starting a little earlier .Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Hotel is close to the beach and Asilomar?"
Nice weather. I have been here before many times. Unfortunately, I was there for the funeral of a good friend. The place was at a good spot and close to everything, especially the water.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the beach, only if it was cleaned well"
I would still recommend this place although it was cleaned well. The staff was very helpful. I had to check in late but I didn't realized it was going to be really late (1:30am), I called them right when I got to their parking, the staff that answered sounded a bit sleepy but polite, he showed up in a minute and was very nice. He was nice enough to […] provide me with late check out the next day since I checked in so late. Great customer service!! The bed was okay. There was only one waste basket for the whole room. The bathroom was okay. Overall it's 4 stars! Customer service really matters!!!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Small room, thin walls"
Room was small and we could hear everyone else's 'business' and conversation. Flimsy plastic cups were not replenished (5 night stay), but was able to get sturdier paper ones from the front desk. Alleged renovation on bathroom very poorly done leaving shower walls pulling away from bathroom walls. Foam pillows and not so comfortable beds. Residential […] neighborhood near Asilomar so you definitely need a car to see or do anything. Don't expect much and you'll be satisfied. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Poor Planning - on Their Part"
Booking our stay over a month in advance you wouldn't think there would be a scheduling problem but there was. Our first morning there the front desk calls to tell us that they're replacing our door and it would take about 30 minutes. We were travelling with our dog so we took her for another walk and returned 45 minutes later. Well, as with construction […] projects there was an issue and 30 minutes turned into 3 hours!! The hotel manager was some what apologetic, gave us 1 night of the pet fee refunded ($25) but mostly made excuses. She told us there was nothing more she could do, re: a refund, as our reservations were made through Hotels.com. The door guys were supposed to be there Monday, etc. This happened on a Thursday. I feel like we shouldn't have been burdened with this at all, they should have worked on other rooms or told the door guys to come back Saturday between 11-3 (checkout & check-in). The $25 was a nice gesture but didn't feel like enough. Had we not had our dog we probably would have found another hotel. Everyhting else was fine but they really missed the mark on this one. We may give them another chance,(how often do doors need to be replaced :)), mostly because not a lot of places take pets and the location is nice. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic, no frills"
Nice place but it was very low occupancy when we stayed so it was nice and quiet. I mention this because my concern would be the noise level if you were surrounded. This is a older place and the walls seem pretty thin. Basic amenities, I.E. two crispy towels. funky room layout but served the need and location is good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Deer Haven Inn"
Had a very enjoyable stay. The rooms were clean and the beds very comfortable. The Inn lived up to its name--saw a few deers.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A getaway time"
Our stay at Deer Haven inn was pleasant although there was no swimming pool or jacuzzi to further add to the pleasure of staying there, everything else was good, too costly how ever. The breakfast was basic coffee, bagel, danish, cereal and not much of a seating area for large group of people. We ended up visiting a neighboring resort and the breakfast […] there was excellent. If the price was more economical , we would stay there again but enjoy breakfast at a different location. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great little place for a casual getaway."
Clean. Comfortable. Friendly staff. Remodeled rooms were well above expectations and were exactly as advertised.... Down to the fireplace and wall art! This is an Inn type setting so don't expect the Intercontenental type luxury, but great for what it was. Only complaint would be that we had to walk by a smelly garbage dumpster that was located next […] to the staircase we had to use to get our upstairs room. Maybe they would be open to moving it elsewhere? Otherwise definitely recommend for a quiet casual getaway. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not bad, not great"
Positives: The fireplace was nice, the walk to Asilomar beach is easy, the price was fair, they allow pets. Negatives: The room was very small, and had no view (except of the city workers re-building the sidewalk), the parking area was very cramped, the front desk was rarely staffed.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"just a few blocks from the beach!"
It was a great place. the faux fireplace was wonderful. After i checked out, I was able to leave my car in their lot while I spent the morning at the beach. The area is beautiful. One note: if you are going to arrive after 10 pm you need to call them and let them know approximately what time you will be there. I didn't know that, and arrived at 10:30 […] ish, but once I rung the doorbell, someone was there quickly to check me in. oh and the rate was great, not too expensive especially considering the location.

"Beautiful Weekend Getaway"
Wonderful stay with my family. Room was very clean and very comfortable. Very close to garden trail, beach and delicious seafood restaurant. Would definitely stay here again!!

"Happy with our stay"
Stayed at Deer Haven Inn for one night the past Easter weekend. Overall happy with the stay. The room has been newly renovated, feel clean and bright in the room. The lcoation is perfect to explore the area, walking distance to the coast. Will definitely stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Short walk from beach, not as nice as hoped"
Pacific Grove is a beautiful, upscale area. I assumed any hotel in this area would be nice. The rooms are much nicer looking than a Motel 6, but the overall look outside is more reminiscent of a motel. There were trash bags left outside the rooms both in the evening and the morning. We literally had to step around trash bags both on check-in and check-out. […] The rooms were very comfortable and clean, and the fireplaces were a nice touch. The beds were nice, and we all slept well, aside from the elephants tromping above us. Continental breakfast is VERY small: three selections of cereal, a few pastries, toast, and older looking apples. Don't plan on this being your :free breakfast" unless you're like me and never eat a real breakfast, anyway. Overall, I would check out other places in the area before staying here again, but it definitely wasn't bad, and the rooms themselves are really the important thing. The location was perfect- away from the Monterey crowds, and a 5-10 minute walk to the beach. No complaints there~ Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
