Great location for 17 mile drive, Monterey Bay Aquarium, Carmel and plenty of other incredibly beautiful sights in the area. Very satisfying continental breakfast and wine and snacks in the early evening. Right across the street from prime surf spot and lots of hiking and biking trails. We can't wait to go back!

We like to travel with our dogs. We are about 3.5 hours away from Pacific Grove and try to visit once a year or more. We have stayed with our dogs at Pacific Garden Inn a few times. We really appreciate that it is dog friendly. The per dog fee is reasonable. The staff is friendly and helpful. If you... More

The room was large and there was an actual fireplace in the room, but the bed was not only on the firm side, I could feel the metal springs in the mattress (a new mattress or at least a mattress pad would have helped a lot). We were constantly aware of our neighbors above us (I think the loud squeaking... More

You couldn't ask for a better location. We stayed 2 nights. This is not a party place it was full both nights with families and couples . Two hot tubs with a BBQ and a soda and snack machine (snack machine was almost empty). White and red wine was served with salami cheese and crackers from 5-7pm in the lobby.... More

Although this is an older property, the rooms are big and the place is very clean. I spilled some water on the linoleum floor and when I wiped it up, the paper towel was perfectly white....actually amazing! Prices are reasonable, and it is within walking distance to the beach. Very dog friendly, and friendly in general. You are made to... More

Priced low to keep it filled, this is not only the best motel in Asilomar, but also the most affordable place to stay in Pacific Grove, right next to 17 mile drive and Carmel, and close drive to the coolest quaint downtown you'll just love. If you know the area, you know is it directly across from the huge Asilomar... More

Spent a long 4th of July weekend. Had a mini-suite, which was nice and roomy. Queen bed was uncomfortable and water pressure pretty weak. Property was quiet at night and is located close to the beach, hiking trails, the Asilomar Conference Center and short drive to downtown Pacific Grove, Monterey, and Carmel. Although pet friendly, there is no open space... More

Beautiful setting, very large rooms. We stayed in a 1 bedroom suite that had a full kitchen and fireplace......LOVED IT!!! A friend and I were in town for a dog agility trial and we love this area. We will be back as we are always looking for great, dog friendly lodging. Décor is older but loved every minute we were... More

Perfect location for biking and wandering around Pacific Grove, Carmel and Monterey. My husband and I spent a long weekend there, came a day early accidentally and they put us up without hesitation. Super accommodating friendly staff. Sure, it's all a bit dated, but I would rather that than have it ripped out and put in a land fill somewhere.... More
