We were taking advantage of a Travelzoo promotion; king room, bottle of champagne and chocolate covered strawberries. All this for what seemed a reasonable price for Pacific Grove, well under $200.00/night. Even in booking the package I couldn't help but wonder about its rating as the 6th worst out of 10. Or from their perspective, the 6th best in Pacific... More

Thank you for your extensive review. We have never been called weird before nor have I ever been called a ghostly specter. In our 30th year of business I guess anything can happen. More

This is a beautiful, century-old inn with unique charm and quality. We were greeted warmly upon arrival and enjoyed our two nights there very much. We have three young children and found the family suite to be perfect. The suite is detached from the main inn, which was great for our family. The breakfasts were delicious, and the ocean view...

An ideal place to escape the pressures of modern life. Our room with both a fireplace and ocean view made it hard to leave, add a glass of wine, it was almost impossible. The staff were very friendly and the views from the dining room are spectacular. Breakfast is good and the wine and snacks in the evening a nice... More

Our adult children found this little gem. We had the walnut room, queen bed, adequate bathroom, quite delightful other than a lack of a TV. I appreciate that some people find TVs uncouth but I need one to fall asleep to. Outside through French doors was a courtyard and fountain , Really lovely. There is a TV in the lounge... More

Your review illustrated to me how important training and followup with my staff is. We have a sitting room on both the second floor and the ground for just for the purpose you wanted. They are there for our guests to view the waves crashing against the rocky coastline. On your introductory tour of the Martine Inn you should have... More

My stay here was great. I was upgraded to a fireplace room on arrival. The room was huge! The bed was very comfortable and the shower worked very well. Nice amenities. I wish they had feather pillows. The breakfast was good, not fancy or huge, but tasty, several options available and the service was very good. Happy hour-complimentary wine and... More

Thank you for your review of the Martine Inn. We are indeed fortunate in our fantastic location. Walk to Cannery Row, Monterey Bay Aquarium, 17 Mile Drive and right on the edge of the Monterey Bay Sanctuary. Our tour of the inn was not as complete as it should have been, because you were not shown 2 sitting rooms that... More

Still our favorite place to stay in Pacific Grove. Amazing views, great beds, wonderful breakfasts and very friendly, helpful innkeepers and staff. We had a "real" fireplace in our room which made the room so warm and cozy on a chilly February night. Be sure to ask Don about the history of the inn and its original owners. It's a... More

Wow, me and my wife had a wonderful time at the Martine Inn in Pacific Grove. We were in the Edith Head room for 3 nights and had a wonderful time.

We enjoyed our stay here! We stayed in the Carriage room, outside and in the back. We loved the special treats set out, from cookies to macaroons, delicious!

We are trying to create victorian times, when service was thoughtful, most things were hand made, life held less pressure and one was not in a rush all the time. For instance, all our food is prepared by hand in our own kitchen by our chef of 27 years. We do not even have a microwave in the kitchen. Thank... More
