The grounds are lovely. Off season so super quiet and we loved that about the location. We were given a large room with kitchenette and fireplace. Of course the continental breakfast could be better, but it tided us over. We will be back!

If you are visiting the Monterey area, consider staying in Pacific Grove and if you do, consider the Bid A Wee . At first glance the name is not a hit with me. Somehow, instead of Inn and Cottages, I see "pet cemetery." However, if you can get by all that this a really nice place to stay near the... More

I stayed here during an outdoor painting workshop, with my dog, and it was comfortable and had a small kitchenette (think I was in a queen's cottage). It's pretty basic in terms of decor and a little depressing but was very clean. They offer a good continental breakfast in the am. It's laid out like a motor inn so the... More

My family and I stayed at this quaint place for one night on our road trip from San Francisco to LA. The staff was very helpful in changing my room to one that was without steps when I told them I was on crutches. The room was clean and had a gas fireplace in the room that was easy to... More

My husband and I have stayed at the bide a wee for years and never had a problem, until I tried to reserve a room and had a very bad experience with the staff. There was a misunderstanding about the room and I felt that the manager made me feel that I was the one in the wrong and made... More

We'd done a road trip through Nevada, San Fran and onto LA for our flight home. We booked one night here on our way through and I wish we'd booked longer. It's in a quiet location, the room was comfortable, clean and had everything we were looking for. It was a beautiful drive to get there and Pacific Grove has... More

loved it! Great hotel, very close to Monterey. Local Restaurants on Lighthouse Avenue are easy to get to and to park nearby (out front). Lighthouse Avenue takes you straight to Cannery Row - 4 minutes! Its about a 4 mile walk away if you would prefer a beautiful walk along the coastal path that also takes you into Cannery Row....

We stayed 1 night. Room was clean and quiet although small. Bed was comfortable, carpeting looked new, bathroom had a nice bathtub, windows were solid (when you closed them, the room was totally quiet). Continental breakfast was good and staff was helpful. Price is reasonable and location is very convenient. Parking is ample and immediately adjacent to room. We've stayed... More

This motel meets all of my expectations for a place to stay. It is quiet, sits one block from the ocean (a wonderful and accessible marine preserve coast-line), the furnishings are tasteful, the staff very helpful, the housekeeping service good and a free continental breakfast. The rates are reasonable and though they do take pets, there are some pet-free rooms.... More
