Stayed here first time week 1 of August 2014. We usually stay on other (Southeast) side of Monterey. Maybe a dozen times over the last few decades. Pacific Grove is a pleasant change from the hustle-bustle of Cannery Row. The Butterfly Grove Inn proved to be a find for my wife and I. Adjacent to butterfly sanctuary, large rooms, beds... More

Friendly reception, poor breakfast served in an overcrowded reception where guests must wait to sit down, house with carpets reeking of old kinds of different smells, almost nauseating. Room very spacious and quiet, charming location. It will take so little to transform it in a great experience. Good luck.

Thank you for your honest feedback. We are indeed listening to all the feedback. Unfortunately the prior management/owner team did not invest back into the property. Therefore we have our work cut out for us. We have many plans in the coming months to improve many of the aspects of the experience. More

When we arrived it was pretty busy (had 2 in front of us to check-in) but we were still greeted by friendly personell and got the keys to our room. What was really comfortable was the parking in front of the room, the size of the room and the free wifi. Sadly it was cold in the room (we had... More

The man who greeted us was friendly and positive. That said-Yikes~ We were desperate for a place to stay and we got a place to stay, but... Dismal interior, bad furniture, so-so mattress, dark, dark room UNTIL NIGHT, when it is literally FLOODED with light, which you can't exclude. Normally i would bury myself under some pillows, but there weren't... More

It is rated 2-stars for a reason. If you expect a 2-star property, I don't think you will be disappointed. If you are expecting a 3-star property, you will be disappointed. As many others have stated, the property is under new management and I can appreciate that they are trying to make improvements but can not really do that during... More

The day we arrived we were greeted by a friendly face and was will to make our stay comfortable. The room that we stayed in was very big with 2 queen beds and a great fireplace.

I checked in for one night, July 13, based on a friend's great memory of the place from several years ago. It has not been maintained: very worn, spotted carpets and many cosmetic issues. Major complaint was THE LACK OF CLEANLINESS: hair in tub, dirt on sills, dirty light switches, deck and chairs not swept or cleaned off, one outdoor... More

We loved the Thai restaurant that was recommended. The Inn is located in a pleasant setting close to beach and aquarium. Only complaint was I could not get the poolside jacuzzi to work and at that...

We stayed two nights 2 adults and a child. Room was larger than expected and clean. Everything seemed well taken care of on the grounds. Knowledgeable and helpful day time manager. HEATED pool and nice outdoors jacuzzi!. Breakfast was medium quality - lots of carbs, but the only fruit was bananas. It was enough to fill the stomach, but not... More
