Clean, comfy, and super cute

Posted Oct 18, 2017
We were very pleased by the overall cleanliness and appearance of our room. It was small but perfect for two people. Hotel staff was very friendly, and the location was conveniently close to the places we wanted to see. Would definitely stay again!

Close to the Ocean and lighthouse

Posted Oct 10, 2017
Pros: Great shower and water pressure. Can walk to some great ocean views.
Cons: The continental breakfast.
Location: Easy walk to the Lighthouse and the John Denver Memorial spot which has great ocean views, hiking and walking trails.
We stayed one night in Pacific Grove /Monterey at the Monterey Peninsula Inn. This is a motel. There are no restaurants within walking distance. A 15-minute walk to the John Denver Memorial and to see some breathtaking views of the ocean. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom door opened weirdly into the room very close to the bed which was odd. A separate room for your luggage which was a nice touch. Great walk-in shower, good water pressure. Breakfast was just weak coffee and instant decaf, and sugar pastries so don't expect much. I wish we had more time there but traffic made us arrive after dark. I'm not sure I would stay here again but it really wasn't a bad experience. Check in was easy, wifi was strong. If you just need a simple overnight stay this would work for you.

Good for walking to the beach with a cup of coffee

Posted Oct 8, 2017
Pros: location
Cons: Serious updating and truth in advertising
Location: Walk to beach and town
This place is tired.The bathroom and bathtub are in bad need of repair. The windows in the bathroom have a really great view of a dead golf cart. It's a Motel 6 type place for 169 a night on the weekends. On the good side, we had a parking place as some of these hotels don't provide much parking. Don't reply on the pretty picture of a continental breakfast as shown on the website. It's more of a day old scone and coffee. Why even bother? The closet is more of a cupboard. No place to hang a dress. They have built a pretty cool fire pit and seating but I don't think it's enough for me to stay here again.

We are sorry that the age of our building and furnishings was so off-putting to you; many of our guests like the charm that our property has, particularly when compared with newer, more modern hotels, which can all look very similar to one another. We pride ourselves on providing clean, comfortable, great value accommodation in this area, and we are sorry that our offering was perhaps not ideal for your needs. Thank you for choosing to stay with us, we appreciate your business on this occasion. Kind Regards, Customer Experience Team

Right-priced, and right for the price

Posted Sep 20, 2017
Pros: For the price, the comfort was good.
Cons: Breakfast, and A/C in the rooms.
Location: Didn't explore the immediate location much. Drove to the jazz fest.
Stayed here during the jazz festival. The rate was very competitive and the photos looked good enough to try. The location is not as close to the fairgrounds as many other options, but the extra few minutes didn't deter us. The neighborhood is quiet and nice. The greeting from staff on arrival was excellent. The room was not air conditioned, which would be a problem in warmer weather (there was a fan in the room). The bathroom showed signs of wear. Otherwise, the room appeared well maintained. Bedding was comfortable and everything worked as it should. The two-port USB charger beside the bed was useful, and wifi worked well. Breakfast was only a couple (nice) pastries and whole fruit, with unmemorable coffee in too-small cups, and the hours were limited (the lobby was closed for our 7am departure). Overall, it was a good value for the competitive price.

Nice getaway in Pacific Grove

Posted Sep 4, 2017
Pros: Nicely located and comfortable
Cons: Wifi
Booked at the last minute on Labor Day weekend and couldn't have been more pleased. Quiet and comfortable. Friendly staff. Our only issue was that wifi was very weak, almost useless. Location was great, near the lighthouse and beach.
