This place is absolutely amazing!! A friend and I spent 14 days road tripping around the center of California and we stayed at a large variety of places - The Bide a Wee was a breath of fresh air! It was the cleanest place I've ever stayed, the room was huge, the bathroom was clean and large, the complimentary breakfast... More

This has become our go-to motel on the Monterey Peninsula (we go down once or twice a year). It's simple; rooms/suites all completely redone in recent time. You can have a living room and kitchen along with a bedroom or, I believe, a standard motel room. Dogs are welcome for a fee. We take our two dogs with us and... More

We were ambivalent about our booking at Bide a Wee, figuring that it would be wonderful or awful. We had stayed at Asilomar three years ago, but wanted alternative arrangements since the prices had gone up, they wouldn't guarantee bedding (we wanted 2 beds) and breakfast was no longer included.Since we wanted to be in walking distance of the beach,...

Our first visit a few years ago was when we were traveling with our dog and needed dog friendly accommodations. This time it was a last minute reservation as we were driving home a new car from Oregon and needed a nice stopping point. It is a wonderful location and quiet. The room was clean & looks like it had... More

I reserved a room for a couple of days to explore the Monterey area. I have enjoyed the very peaceful location, very close to the Asilomar beach. I had a car so I could reach all the amenities in Monterey very quickly. The environment is very peaceful so this is a plus if you are looking for some rest from... More

A couple of nights stay during the mid-week before Memorial Day weekend. Quiet and great price. An older place but well kept. Block away from Asilomar Beach which was great for walks. Short drive to Monterey and nearby attractions. Bring breakfast to room which had good offering of bagels, muffins, some fruit, juice and coffee. WiFi worked fine. Would definitely... More

We rented a room with double bed. The room is clean and nice. Have all the amenities that they said--Fireplace, microwave, fridge and TV. But the Wi-Fi sucks. We could not get any reception in our room. We have to walk out to the garden to use the Wi-Fi. When we complained to the staff, he said there is nothing... More

I visit Pacific Grove several times a year to visit family and typically stay at Asilomar or Pacific Garden Inn. When they were full, I decided to try Bide-A-Wee. I loved it. Much cleaner than either of the other locations, grounds are very pretty and location is great. This is my new place to stay!

I rented a one bedroom king cottage at this little inn. Very comfortable and had everything I needed. Extremely clean, not a spec of dust. Situated about 2 blocks away from the beautiful coastline and the Point Pinos lighthouse, it was the perfect spot for long morning or evening walks and convenient to the Monterey area without the traffic. Very... More
