Every year my wife and I go on our vacation to San Francisco and then back down the coast. We stop in Pacific Grove each time for two days as it is a wonderful town. I have stayed at the Wilke's twice and I sure don't know what these fine folks are talking about when they give it such a... More

Wilkie's Inn is a good basic motel along outer Lighthouse Avenue in Pacific Grove. It's close to the beach, though don't try to walk there at night as I did (no lights, no sidewalks). It's a longish walk to the Pacific Grove commercial district, a short drive to Asilomar Conference Center. Our second floor room (stair access only) was clean,... More

We were pleasantly surprised when we walked into our room. It was spacious with all the amenities you could want (microwave & refrigerator are nice) and we had a lot of room to spread out. We were in a corner room upstairs with windows on two corners and we were able to look out and watch the deer. We drove... More

We stayed at Wilkie's a week ago. The grounds were very nice, the staff were friendly, and the rooms were clean. It is an older motel with updates. The only bad thing is that it was quite noisy. We were downstairs and had people upstairs from us that were up kind of late. We had to go upstairs and tell... More

We recently stayed at Wilkes based in part on reviews from this site. The location is good and the property is well maintained. This is an older motel with oddly remodeled rooms and is not friendly to physically challenged persons.

We try to stay at The Wilkie's Inn which is 3 blocks from the ocean every time we go to the beach, the entire staff are so pleasant to deal with.

Since our son, daughter-in-law and grand children live in Monterey, CA my husband and I come to Monterey at least once a year for three nights. Since Christmas 1995 we have been staying at The Wilkie's Inn. How can you find a better location? You are 3 blocks from downtown, minutes to the famous 17-mile Drive and Carmel. I should... More
