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

I spent Christmas Eve in a room at Wilkie's Inn as my favorite motel across the street was fully booked for the holiday. The location of Wilkie's Inn is in a quiet part of Pacific, within a short drive from the attractions in Monterey and Carmel. The room was smaller than average and because it was on the ground floor... More

We are traveling on Hwy 1 and Monterey/Pacific Grove was one of our stops. We had no hotel reservation so we stopped at Wilkles Inn. We arrived on Monterey in a pretty busy weekend, so find a hotel was not very easy. Hotel is ok and was fine for sleep just for one night. Breakfast was poor, but ok.

This hotel is well located, it is clean and the rooms are fair sized. We had an end unit with three windows so it was light and airy. This is not a top star place but decent place for the price. Close to the beach and lighthouse

I liked this hotel. These photos don't reflect the simple, tasteful bedspreads that were in our room. I LOVED the organic bath products. I really needed the moisturizer after so much dryness in the outside air. Front desk was nice. Our room had a view toward the back of the ocean and the roofs in the neighborhood. The air in... More

We rode into Pacific Grove CA. without a motel reservation for the night. Stopped at the Wilkles Inn. The folks at the desk were very friendly and accomadating. The rate was resonable. The room was clean. The bed was very comfortable and we slept like worn out motorcyclist. The breakfast was good. It's right down the street from the Pacific... More
