This place is a time share that are large condos you can stay at. Good for families, walk downtown, and in between Monterey and Pebble Beach. Nice place to relax at even walk to movie theatre. Small town charm.

We needed a place to house some spill over guests for a week. This hotel is close to our house and they had a unit large enough for 6. The common areas are dimly lit and the carpets a little outdated & worn. The rooms were clean, but like the common areas, they are dimly lit. The florescent lighting does... More

My husband and I have been timeshare owners at the Plaza for 30 years. We started with one week and now visit five weeks a year. This review will be somewhat different from the other five star reviews so I hope it will give you a unique look at our home away from home. As stated by other reviewers...... The... More

We have been owners here since 1994 & have never once had a bad experience. The units are so spacious you could live here in one. I find it hard to believe people could say they were dirty as this would never happen...impossible! You could fix a Thanksgiving dinner here with the nice sized kitchens & all of the dishes... More

Pacific Grove Plaza is a wonderful timeshare property with rental options for all. I have owned at PGP for over 25 years and seen wonderful management, and service. I stay every year and can't wait to come back each year. The upgrades by the Board and Manager are right on. The front desk personnel are attentive and very pleasant and... More

We've been coming here for years and enjoyed it for years. Until recently. The quality has seriously degraded with the change in management. The units were dirty and hadn't been cleaned. The mid week service is no longer available (well, without having to pay for it). The sheets didn't fit correctly. The windows were dirty. The silverware and dishes hadn't... More

Assistant manager reneged on her promise to give us a quiet room in the back (we’d done our homework and read the Room Tips). Instead “the only room left” when we arrived was a VERY noisy room in the front (on the main drag and above the restaurant). We took it and our vacation turned into a sleep deprivation experiment....

We have been coming to the Pacific Grove Plaza for 11 years - we own a timeshare here and use it every year. It has become our family tradition! There are one and two bedroom units - ranging from 1000 to 1800 sq feet. The units are so spacious, we can really make ourselves at home. The kitchens are fully... More

Looking for a place to stay on the Monterey Peninsula? Check here first! Most of the rentals go to the timeshare owners (it's a fantastic deai if you're in the market for a getaway spot), so look early. These units are ENORMOUS, modern, with full kitchens, comfortable beds, and most units have balconies. Many of them have ocean views. It's... More
