This would be a good place to write the next great novel! It's a tiny place, though, with barely enough room to turn around. Everything seems to fit. You can walk to the beach (watch your step, it's rocky at times). There were lots of deer while we were there. Very quaint. Nice folks who run the place.

My wife and I recently attended a family reunion in Pacific Grove where we thought we should plan to be there for four nights, and booked in the Bide-A-Wee Cottages because of the convenient location and small kitchen. When we arrived we were asked to pay for all four nights up front. That night we learned that the family would... More

This place has a great location, free wifi and free parking. This ends the list of positive remarks about it. It is poorly maintained, and the guests seem to be a nuisance to the staff. Sorry - we won't bother you again. During our second day there, the person cleaning the rooms arrived around 4 pm ! Breakfast is very... More

I loved this hotel. The rooms were private. Well, there is a strip-mall room area, but we were lucky to get room 122. It had a balcony and trees so we were able to sit outside and still feel private. We saw hummingbirds every morning. Would recommend.

Pacific Grove was a more affordable venue than Monterey or Carmel and we found it superbly situated for all we wanted to do and see in that area. The Bide-a wee-inn with it's strange name was just off the coast road and offered all we needed in that there was coffee available all day or we could use the good... More

Out of date but quiet and off the beaten path. Down graded for lack of staff and generally lackadaisical approach to customer satisfaction. The beds are very cozy. The rooms are spacious, but everything should be upgraded for the prices charged.

We're a family of four with 2 kids under 7 years of age. When looking for places to stay in the Monterey area, I wanted something that had a separate living area from the bedroom so that my husband and I didn't have to go to bed when the kids did. Our room was perfect! We had two queen beds... More

This Lodging was nice and clean and well kept. If we hadn't had such a poor showing from the front desk staff, we would return. The rooms were clean, some smelled a little odd. We had inadvertently booked an extra room and neglected to cancel the reservation. We had called prior to checking in to see if there was something... More

Good for family. Rooms is big and clean. The kitchen is small but function well. The furniture and articles for daily use is high quality. They also have a small garden there! You can walk to the ocean within 10 minutes. You can drive to 17-mile drive within 5 minutes. The city itself is amazing.

This Inn was great. Very clean. They had a lot of different style rooms. The grounds were very well kept. The continental breakfast was kind of generic. Very good coffee in the morning. It had free wifi and cable TV. The owners were very helpful.
