"Short walk to beach"
Husband and I stayed here for 1 night; this would have been a comfortable room for multiple nights though, and there is lots to do nearby. Asilomar Beach is a short walk away, and Cannery Row and Monterey Aquarium are just a few minutes by car. The room was fairly spacious and newly remodeled, bed was comfortable. The breakfast was just the basics: […] cold cereal, instant oatmeal, quartered muffins, juice, coffee. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"clean and contemporary and quiet. great value."
Very clean and very quiet motel. A great value. New hard wood floors and a fireplace in our room and plenty of cable channels offered on flat screen tv as well. Bedding was crisp and clean and spa like, defintiely not frumpy. Short walk to Asilomar Beach and nice walk through the pretty surrounding neighborhood. There is only one eating place within […] walking distance on a main road but we did not eat there. We drove into Monterey for dinner. No sundries or snacks to purchase onsite either other than a coke vending machine but there was a continental type breakfast in the morning with muffins, cereal, toast, juice and coffee inside the little office area with some outdoor seating as well. Hotel staff were very friendly and it was a pleasant peaceful experience. Very clean and contemporary and well kept. No neighboring noises around hotel to keep you awake which is often a problem in the larger hotels. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
oh it was great very nice place to visit slow close to the beach wonderful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This was the third time I had stayed at Deer Haven and found it much improved over former times. I will certainly return in the future. My one complaint was that by 8:30, the little complimentary breakfast was quite exhausted!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Had to wait over an hour past check in time because our room wasn't clean yet....assistant manager was a total jerk.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location a hit for us!"
I loved the location, next to Asilomar. Was clean and staff friendly and accommodating. Some construction going on in lobby. Breakfast was minimalistic.Genuine Expedia guest review
Not friendly check in at all. Room was clean; in order-- which was good. Loud unorderly kids next door causing early wake up. Location is not very close to our destination. Due to construction of front check in area; did not want to get breakfast; went out to eat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lobby was small! Only one person at a time when checking in.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for people attending Asilomar conferences"
I recently attended a conference at Asilomar and stayed at Deer Haven Inn during my conference. The Inn was very conveniently located directly across the road from the conference center. The room was spacious and nicely styled. The king bed was comfortable, the blankets were really thin and there were no spare blankets in the room. I didn't ask for […] more, instead turning on the heating which worked well but was VERY loud every time it switched on which did bother me a bit at night when i was trying to sleep. I didn't try out the fireplace or check whether they supplied wood. Overall all, despite the noisiness of the heating, I woukd definitely recommend for travelers wanting a cheaper and convenient alternative to Asilomar. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Deer Haven Inn"
The office is in the process of renovation at the time we stayed there. About the room, for its price it was pretty nice! next to the quite residential neighborhood! :)Genuine Expedia guest review
Really nice hotel with a nice gas fireplace. Would be great for a romantic weekend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Clean and Comfortable"
The location is great for walking to the beach. Downtown is just a short drive. The rooms have been remodeled so are clean and new. For Pacific Grove is was a good bargain.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"close to ocean"
We love this place and have stayed many times over the past 5 years! They are redoing all the rooms and the office! Friendly!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quiet room walk to beach"
Location is awesome! Comfort and cleanliness good. No one cleaned our room while we were gone - had to ask for clean towels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best location and fireplace!"
the hotel is under construction. I think they did a great job for this particular situation. They were pet friendly an important consideration. Service was very helpfulGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to Monterey Aquarium"
Our stay was short but pleasant, nice surroundings. Very close to the Monterey Aquarium.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Continental Breakfast a joke"
About the only good things about this motel was the location near Asilomar and a gas fireplace in room because it was gray, foggy and freezing. A motel of this quality in another area would be barely a 1-2 rating. Bed and pillows uncomfortable. Towels threadbare. Parking very narrow, we were dinged by a car too close to us. The continental breakfast […] was a joke. My husband had two slices of toast (no fruit, no rolls, no cereal, no yogurt and some yellow water called orange juice. We won't be back.

"Good quality for price"
Recently remodeled rooms, good coffee in rooms, current work in progress to upgrade breakfast area. Pet friendly.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nothing Really Special"
Average hotel stay...clean, nice bed, close to Asilomar Conference Center, 1 mile from the beach...ok for a night's stay... Continental breakfast consisted of toast, sliced muffins, cereal and OJ. No extra blankets in the room...a bit noisy I would check aroung the area for other hotels.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Our Spring Break:"
IT was very nice, clean and walking distance to the beach! We would stay there again. Great Staff... The price was just right also.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
excellent property in a great location. comfortable. Only drawback was perhaps it being very family friendly. Kids running around upstairs. Overall greatGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"great location, wonderful renovated rooms"
We loved this hotel. We walked the kids down to the beach at Asilomar and played in the sand and it is an easy drive to Monterey Bay Aquarium. The rooms were super clean and very nicely renovated. The only weak point was breakfast wasn't too exciting.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Most everything was very nice. down side was only one wash cloth for two people, refrigerator was cool not cold and Wi-Fi was intermittent.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location easy walk to the beach"
We had a great stay. Room was recently remondeled but they were still working on the Inn. Staff was great. We stayed in rm110 the only set back is it was a bottom floor and I had to ask the people up stairs to stop stomping their feet. Other then that I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"OK place but..."
Room is recently updated and was comfortable, although heater made a knocking sound the first night. Manager's office is unsightly and breakfast was not out at 8:00 so I gave up and went to a local coffee shop.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The man who greeted us at 8:30 at night looked like he had just come off the road from a hell's angels ride. The " continental" breakfast was wheat toast, Orange and bananas. It was not worth $119!Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel room was newly redone so everything was really clean. The room also had a king size bed, fire place, refrigerator, microwave oven, ironing board/iron, hair dryer and coffee maker. The continental breakfast was very generous with a wide selection of foods. The hotel is a few blocks from the ocean and a mile from Monterey. Very convenient.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Ok value...can likely do better"
Don't expect much for 'breakfast'. Breakfast was coffee, tea, hot cocoa, bread (toaster), butter, a Costco muffin sliced in about 8 slices, instant oatmeal, or cold cereal. OK, for some...just seemed skimpy... Fireplace is nice. Bed is a little high off the ground (I am 5'6" and when sitting on the edge of the bed my legs did not touch the floor). […] You need to use some heat because bed linens/blankets were not warm. Towels are supposed to be white...some should be replaced or the hotel should consider a new linen service. It was pretty quiet there tho. Price was reasonable. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
The fireplace in the room is a nice touch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We love this place! The newly renovated rooms are modern and comfortable. The location is perfect with asilomar state beach within walking distance, it's perfect for our kids. We love the fireplace! They do need a new supply of towels. Other than that this place is ideal for us.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pleasant comfortable enjoyed my stay. I will definitely return when staying in the Monterey area.Genuine Expedia guest review
Pics showed something else. Beach was not as close as it says. Definitely over priced!!! No pool. WTH!!! We said we have a total of 4 people, they had 3 towels in te room. How did they do that math. Definitely not going back!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"So why not just upgrade the towels"
Loved the fireplace that came on when needed to heat the room. Very cozy. Good value. Funny, about the thin towels others have noted. It's true. Wouldn't cost the owner much to buys some new plusher ones.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The breakfast was the low point. I would not recommend this hotel. They were always out of food and it was of poor quality. The rooms had been renovated but seemed unfinished and sloppy. I loved the area but work needs to be done on this hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Loved Pacific Grove!"
Nice staff. Great location. Very poor breakfast. Food was very minimal and not properly resuppliedGenuine Hotels.com guest review
I used to stay in this hotel frequently, maybe 12-15 years ago, as I have relatives in the area. This time I needed a hotel for one night prior to Christmas get-together. The hotel staff was great - courteous, friendly, inviting. I was very disappointed in the room. There was no carpet, yet it was not a handicapped-accessible room (the bathroom and […] doorways were much too small). VERY chilly on a December night The towels were paper thin. The pillows were like cardboard. The room was clean, but had that faint aroma of too much disinfectant lingering in the air. The fan rattled noisily whenever the heat came on. The light over the toilet in the bathroom was out, and there were no tissues to be found. It felt shabby. My daughter loved the free wi-fi! Maybe one has to pay upwards of $200 in this country now to get a decent room? The price was right, and as I said, the room WAS clean, and we only needed a place to sleep as the familial house was full to the rafters. I won't stay there again, however. It was depressing, felt like a Motel 6. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"ok for a clean stay"
Deer Haven was clean and the rooms were adequate, but the place lacks personality.Genuine Expedia guest review
front desk very friendly and helpful. Room is quiet, cozy, warm and very clean.. The only negatives are poor shower pressure, not enough hot water to take a hot shower and the towels are old, poor quality.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Recently remodeled rooms, clean, close to the ocean (walking distance). The breakfast was so-so.Genuine Expedia guest review
"good place for anyone"
Rooms were very clean and updated. Contential breakfast was small. No yogurt and only two choices for cereal. Otherwise a nice place to stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
"We watched deer across the street"
We would definetly stay here again. You can walk to the beach from the hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great Location but an average motel"
We loved the location and room was ok however they can do a better job just by paying attention to details such as quality towels, extra pillows, etc. Rooms need to be decorated. Lobby needs an overhaul. Breakfast is a joke. They either provide a better quality food or not serve at all.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Overnight before Aquarium Trip"
Nice remodel of room since our last stay. Heat took some time to get going, but fireplace was nice touch. Just a block or two from beach (Asilomar). Very light on offerings at B'fast, but rate was reasonable. Quiet residential neighborhood motel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The location was central to Cannery Row, Pacific Grove and Monterey. Room was very clean, Could not open curtains due to windows on the street. The fireplace actually did give off some heat. The only drawback was their continental breakfast-it left a little to be desired. They had muffins that you buy at Costco, toast and 2 kinds of cereal - raisin […] bran and corn flakes, Coffee was decent, but I wasn't very thrilled-could not enjoy the breakfast. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel is adjacent to Asilomar conference grounds, which is a plus. Grounds are open to the public and really nice. You can walk through the grounds to Asilomar State Beach in about 10 minutes, and this is the prettiest stretch of ocean, beach and rocks on the California coast. Better than Carmel. Pacific Grove is very quiet--really nice. Location is […] best feature of Deer Haven, although rooms are clean and adequate. Breakfast is skimpy and no place to sit inside. Some rooms have gas fireplaces which for my room seemed to be the only source of heat, but that was okay. But it's not possible to sit and enjoy the fireplace--located in front of the beds. If you are not there for a conference, there's other options in Pacific Grocw with same quiet non-touristy ambience for less money. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Deer haven is definitely a pretty stay!"
I can see that the place was recently remodeled. Nice fire place. There were some exposed cable wires that had the covers not secured. Cleaning staff was very friendly!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great location for the price"
Small rooms, but very clean and comfortable. Direct tv, fire places and only a few minute drive to the aquarium. Quiet residential are- although they allow dogs and someone in the room next to us had a dog that barked non stop until 10 pm (we did not ask to move, the tv covered the noise).Genuine Expedia guest review
"Not a 3.5"
I expexcted more from this hotel based on the pictures. They have done some freshening up, but thereis no art, the beds are not that comfortable, there is no air flowing through the room and the towels are old and hard. The price is way too high for what you get. Better luck next time, I guess.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"No Hot Water"
Our experience with this hotel was disappointing due to a lack of hot water resulting in 3 days of brisk showers. Everything else met our expectations, and, other than enduring cold showers, our experience was actually quite nice. When I asked the staff to look into the problem with the hot water, I was dismissed with a look of surprise and a perfuntory […] "we'll check the pilot light", but nothing changed, and the brisk showers ruined our stay.

reasonable price; about 10 min drive to wharf area; we actually saw several deer just across the street!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
