The Butterfly Grove Inn isn't fancy, but it's comfortable. The rooms are large and airy feeling, and they have been updated at some point. We had a fireplace, which was nice, and there's a fridge and microwave. The setting is special in that the Monarch Butterfly preserve is literally in the backyard. Our only complaint was about the fan in... More

The Butterfly Grove is an older site but is mostly fully remodeled and it is a neat place almost in the Monarch butterfly reserve. Two guests that I talked to had been coming there for 20 and 30 years respectively.There are 3 separate sites. I think the oldest is the Very large two storied house that we stayed in. I... More

Unique quiet place away from tourist areas. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. The room was large with 2 queen beds, table with 2 chairs, fireplace, large screen TV, refrigerator and coffeemaker. The bed linens and pillows were exceptional. The butterfly sanctuary was in front of the room. We woke up to butterflies outside our front window! Can book different... More

King room nice size. Large dressing area with large counter space. Separate tub/shower and toilet. Good size refrigerator and micro. Seems like recent refresh with new paint,new fixtures in dressing area, new counter in dressing area. Able to park in front of room a plus not to carry luggage far. Continental breakfast limited.

We stayed 2 nights during a couple rainy days in Pacific Grove. Our room was great, comfortable king bed, good size bathroom with tub, fridge, microwave and best of all a fireplace. We even saw some butterflies between the showers. We had a great rate so well worth it. A modest breakfast was included. You can not see the ocean... More

I found them on Living Social but booked direct, because Erna was so helpful on the phone. When I arrived, I had a slight problem with no parking space near my unit. Since others had parked there in error, she helped move those improperly parked cars. As an over 60 woman, it's tough schlepping luggage in the rain, down a... More

Location is ideal for viewing the monarchs. Its also pet friendly, spacious and close to nice restaurants and shops. We only stayed one night in December and would definitely go again. Stay in the single story units that face the pool for a nice view and quiet location. Back rooms near the grove had some noise. Property is really charming... More

Located just off Lighthouse Ave. it is away from the noise and traffic of downtown Monterey. The design reminds you of the old motels of the 1950's & 1960's. It is adjacent to the monarch butterfly grove, close to the Pt. Pinos Lighthouse and the Pacific Grove Municipal Golf Course. The beaches and Ocean View Blvd are about a 10... More

Room was clean....A Nice remodeled Bathroom... Bed was comfortable...Not a 5-Star Motel.....But very adequate for general comfort. If there were any negative factors, they were minimal and not intrusive.... Old lampshades & carpet & a spotty interior paint job...(Who cares as they had no affect on a comfortable stay)...Would definitely stay at this motel again. A Good continental breakfast featuring...

It was very roomy, and the bed was so comfortable. Loved having a gas fireplace because it was cool in the mornings and at night. We also had a refrigerator and microwave. What we didn't like was that the walls were so paper thing that you could hear every sound the neighbors made.....and they were only talking and watching TV.... More
