I stayed at this motel for one night while traveling up the coast on Highway one. This was the most decently priced place in the area that also had all the features I needed. The grounds of this motel are very beautiful and peaceful. It reminded me of a 1960's resort in the woods. The room was very nice and... More

Not over the top. I randomly found this Inn last minute. I decided to take a quick vacation, I called Butterfly Grove Inn the night before I was to arrive. They did give me a last minute discount. Professional service when I arrived, my room had 2 queen beds, I only needed one, it was just myself and my minature... More

I recently spent three nights at the Butterfly Grove Inn based on the recommendations on Tripadvisor and I was very disappointed. After talking to the management, I realize they are trying hard to upgrade the hotel but at this time I can not recommend staying there. We stayed in the multistory, 100 year old house/building that is on the property... More

We like staying at non-chain motels because they typically have charm. This motel was clean, the room was HUGE, the beds were comfortable, and the breakfast was exactly what we expected. With that said, the location was quite off the beaten trail so there was not a lot within walking distance (for a family with small kids) to see or... More

This is a large complex, but you feel like you are out of the main stream. Apparently these are new owners and are doing upgrades a little at a time. The room was large and clean. We had 2 doubles and a fireplace plus a frig at $134. It needed a new rug and the chairs needed replacing, but very... More

Butterfly Grove Inn is both comfortable and peaceful. We stayed for 6 nights and I cannot think of even one negative. If you like to walk it is not far from downtown Pacific Grove and the Monarch Sanctuary is lietrally adjacent to the property. I spent one afternoon reading on a bench in the sun watching butterflies flit by. It... More

We stayed at this hotel 2/20/15-2/22/15. I have stayed here a few times before and it was always a decent hotel in a very good location. It is under new management and they are making some improvements. The room we stayed in was freshly painted and appeared to have new carpet. The beds were good. The grounds and butterfly sanctuary...

This nice inn is situated in the Monarch Butterfly sanctuary and it was lovely to see the butterflies fluttering about outside the room. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, and the fireplace kept us nice and toasty. Breakfast was filling, but could have had some hard boiled eggs or yogurt for protein. The pool and hot tub were... More
