Cheap motel, but the room was clean, and good space for two people, the motel is closed to the downtown, and close to the Lighthouse. Staff at the lobby was not very friendly, and if you want to take breakfast, no table except two outside, no one in the bedroom!

It was Veteran's Day weekend and no Hotels to be found except this one. Our son in law booked us into Rm#101. Small room with table and two chairs. A desk with office chair. Next to the desk on the wall was your "closet" to hang clothes. A bit cramped and the bed (King size) was hard as a rock.... More

This hotel is tiny and the rooms are quite small. The room and the lobby were very clean and adequate if a little overdecorated. It was nice to have the car close by and the location near our relatives was perfect. There is even a small public seating area under cover outdoors.We would not hesitate to stay there again.

We stayed for one night in Pacific Grove to visit the aquarium and Wilkie's was a wonderful choice. Just a short drive from Wilkie's to the aquarium and also many restaurant choices close at hand on Cannery Row. Wilkie's offered an excellent continental breakfast that included waffles, cereals, juice and coffee. Rooms were spacious and very clean. Very friendly family... More

The rooms and grounds are not well maintained. The rooms we are staying in have rats in the walls. We heard them all night. When we complained we were basically told we were lying instead of accepting our complaint and stating that they would look into it. I will try to post a video of the animal noises tonight.

We were referred to the Wilkie's Inn by the Sunset Inn, which was sold out. We got the last room available after checking in late in the day. The reception desk guy, Ray, was very professional and welcoming. Our queen room was on the second floor and had a view of the ocean looking north. While the rooms are fairly... More

The Wilkie's Inn enabled us to discover the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary!!! It was located right across the street. The Grove of butterflies was magical, as we have never seen a natural migration before. This motel was comfortable enough- my husband didn't care for the dingy accommodations. I thought the bed was comfortable. The first night, we managed to turn the... More

We froze to death in our room.... the supposed heater was about 1 candlepower on a freezing night....the whole place is old fashioned in a cheap way & needs a good scrub & painting as well as some renovations. Breakfast was poor & served right in front of the checkin desk a very strange arrangement. Sorry wont be returning there.

RESERVATION: We stayed at the Wilkie's Clarion January 19-21 during the MLK holiday weekend. We had booked a queen bedroom about a week before our stay on the comfort inn website. The rate was $70 per night before the 10% AAA discount, the least expensive holiday weekend rate I had ever seen online in a hotel in Pacific Grove. Of... More
