This is a mixed review for this place. I liked some aspects of the hotel very much. The good things were that the location is nice and it has a homey feel. I love the color they painted the outside. The monarch butterfly grove is just behind the hotel property and you can walk right in anytime to view the... More

We were very disappointed. We were on the second floor, the carpets had been vacumed, but were not clean and made you want to keep something on your feet. The room had an old dirty smell so much that we had to by air freshener spray. Air conditioner ran 24 hrs a day with no control. They didn't empty the... More

Just stayed two nights at the Butterfly Grove Inn with a group of 7. We were not the only small group. We interacted well with them, saying we hoped we did not make too much noise. They laughed and said the same thing to us. The ceilings in all the rooms are very high and open- beamed which made the... More

Friendly staff, Eric was very helpful in particular! Room was clean and tidy, bed was comfy and for the price a real winner in our opinion!! Enjoyed the breakfast provided, simple but to be expected given the price, however all fresh and plenty of choice!!

For the price we paid we were happy. It was a bit old but it was clean. There is a butterfly grove at the bottom of the property. Unfortunately we were there too early to see the butterflies. Apparently they start arriving in October. The manager and his wife are lovely people and so helpful. Breakfast was included and it... More

Very disappointing. It's a lovely location and a cool setup, but our room was filthy. In reading below, I see that there are new owners and they're working on updates. That's little consolation when you're in a room that's got filthy walls, badly stained carpets, and previous guests' hair all over the bathroom. I understand that some fixes, like the... More

My husband, son and I recently visited the area back in August of 2014. It was great. Nice, large, clean rooms with fireplace. Breakfast served every morning--pastries, waffles, banana's, coffee, juices. The property has a woods like setting with tall Monterey pines next door to a butterfly reserve. Wildlife on property--deer and some raccoons. We took advantage of the hot... More

I stayed here with 2 other family members to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium for 2 nights. It was a perfect location for us and reasonably priced. It was away from the main tourist area but a five minute drive to the aquarium and Cannery Row. The hotel wasn't fancy but clean, quiet and comfortable. We had a family suite... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Lovely location next to the butterfly grove and within walking distance of local shops and restaurants. Rooms are very spacious and nicely equipped. Good sized pool. Only real complaint is the breakfast. Almost no fruit or any protein. Only cereals, bread and waffles.

We absolutely loved this little inn. The location was exceptional... a very close walk to the beach. It was very quick and easy to get to the highway, downtown Pacific Grove, and even Monterey. The management is exceptional. They were able to take care of all of our needs and every time we would ask for something, they always helped... More
