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 enjoyed even looking at the ceiling as I laid in bed. The outside was wonderful with the Monterey Pines at our fingertips. There... More

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

Huge, clean, room with vaulted ceiling and fireplace just like photo on website. Now that's truth in advertising!. Staff was friendly, eager to please. 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

I attended a conference in Monterey recently and stayed at the Butterfly Grove Inn. It was very clean, peaceful and just an all around good experience. I had an electrical switch issue in the bathroom one morning so I left housekeeping a note and when I return that evening the switch was replaced. I plan to return next year with... More

Freezing rooms; shower barely worked; terrible breakfast & horrible coffee. Not worth even half the money we paid. The only good thing was the raccoons robbing the trash can at night... That was cute.

How to spend few nights in the Monterey Peninsula without spending $500 per night or more. This hotel is the answer, the staff is very friendly, it is clean, the room we had was huge. The swimming pool is pleasant and the hot tub is working (don't laugh, it is an achievement!) On the downside, the water pressure in the... More

This is our second time at this hotel. We really like it. The staff is very nice and incredibly hard working, the rooms are spacious and clean, some with little patios, TV has lots of channels -if that's what you're into. We've stayed at many hotels in this area before and for that price range, I would say its probably... More
