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

Unfortunately I was greeted unprofessionally, and treated with disrespect by the receptionist. She abruptly accused me of clicking the Book button up to 3 times via my computer which she stated resulted in me reserving 3 king rooms at the hotel. I showed her that her information was incorrect as I had received a confirmation for one room only at... More

A simple motel with comfortable beds and a good night’s sleep. Lighting a bit dim, as in many American motels, but I was only here for being outdoors and it served well as a sleeping place. A usual continental breakfast, nothing special. Parking outside the room’s door.

1. We stayed at Wilkie's Clarion Hotel (WCH) in Pacific Grove, making reservations using the Comfortinn web site, and the AAA discount, paying $80 Saturday, and $72 Sunday, before taxes. 2. If you are a walk-in on a major holiday weekend at WCH, expect to pay through the nose, with your wallet taking a major hit of at least $205... More
