Stayed 3 nights and it was really bad. Checked in Wednesday, 11/11 and clerk was totally rude. Walls are like paper and you can hear people throughout the entire complex. This is a "sleep and leave" motel (not a hotel) because you wouldn't want to spend one extra second here if you don't have to. Clarion must really need franchise... More

I stayed at this hotel for just a night but the experience have haunted me for days. The staff is very very rude. All they think about is money. They don't treat customers well. When I checked in to the room i was greeted by bad smell. The room smelled so bad that I had to spray my perfume all... More

Room was clean, quiet with frig and microwave, no A/C needed due to normal cool summer temperatures. Front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. Much better than average hotel WiFi with excellent signal strength, 9.72 Mbps download and 8.36 Mbps upload speeds. Continental breakfast included cook-them-yourself waffles; red apples; couple cereals; oatmeal; bagels; sliced bread; orange juice; milk; coffee; etc.... More

This is a health hazard. It has a hidden cell tower disguised as a chimney. Rooms are average for a budget hotel, location is good for Asilomar and the Butterfly sanctuary. Children and pregnant woman do not stay here due to radiation risk from hidden cell tower.

The bed was as hard as a rock, the pillows flatter then pancakes, the fridge didn't work, the TV controller didn't work, extremely old and worn out! Don't even get me started on the "Free Breakfast" NOT Clarion's Finest! We ended up leaving the second night into our three night trip at 9pm and drove 6 hours home even though... More

We recently spent a few days vacationing in the area. the hotel is simple and straight and very convenient to Pacific Grove area. You can walk downtown and to the beach and to the monarch butterflies trail. Don't expect any luxury . It is a simple basic hotel. Pretty clean, older fabrics and rugs but not bad especially if you... More

Externally the two-story brown motel looked like Bavaria with planter boxes of colorful geraniums. Internally the room was clean, comfortable, nothing fancy, nice bathroom (room #106). Not all rooms are equal, a nearby room was sparce. Could easily walk to beach, where we saw deer feeding on grassy sand dunes. Lighthouse also nearby but check for days/hours. Located in quiet...

Room was very clean.Good value. Not fancy. The bathroom is very nice.I was in room#104 and you can hear the ocean at night if you're in the bathroom. You can hear traffic during day but at night it quiets down. For price & location I'm glad I stayed for one night. It's not up to date but for the price... More
