A lovely town with a true West Coast vibe. The beds were very comfortable and the front desk was very hellpful. The town has an interesting history as a Methodist retreat, and at the lodge you're right by lovely walks along the beach.

What a pleasant place to stay. We stayed in room 206 which had a partial view of the ocean. The beds were very comfortable with very nice down duvets. Our room room was generously large with high vaulted ceilings and plenty of space. The setting was very quiet and peaceful complete with deer wandering through the property. Compared to the... More

This was very smooth experience. Booking process was very convenient, location is very quiet and the room was clean and spacious. Slept and had free breakfast (which is free a for a reason). Make sure you are there before 10PM, reception closes afterwards.

Its great when you visit Monterey .. close to the 17 mile drive - the room we had was nice and clean - enough space - although you have the feeling you live in narnia - the rooms seem to have all glas doors that are visually closed by blinds that look like they come off a closet dont expect...

We just needed to get away!! This was perfect. Lovely comfortable beds with down comforters and pillows. Really close to the beach and site seeing places. Try a beer at Bulldog's! Great place with great people! The continental breakfast was convenient and good! Pricing was great considering the location

Nice place to stay in Pacific Grove, right near 17 mile drive and not far from the aquarium. Small bathrooms, nice staff. You feel like you are in the woods which is what we were looking for on our trip.

The prices are very reasonable especially for this area. Staff was very friendly and helpful. It is a convenient location on the end of the main street, close to the shore and a short walk to shops, great restaurants, and the beach. Monterey, Fisherman's Wharf, Cannery Row, the Aquarium, Pebble Beach, and Carmel are a short drive away. My largest... More

I usually take advantage of the travelzoo deals for Olympia Lodge & have not yet been disappointed. I love the location, it is just a 5-10 mins walk to the lighthouse & a good 20-30 mins walk to downtown Pacific Grove. Lodging also comes with continental breakfast. The prices are very reasonable especially for this area.

Room was pretty much what I expected. It had the lodge atmosphere but was very small. The bathroom was tiny and outdated. We had a problem with our shower (wouldn't drain), called the front desk and they let us use another room to shower. Overall, I was pretty happy with the room for the price paid compared to others in... More

We stayed a couple nights at Olympia lodge based on an online deal. I probably wouldn't stay here again, but wouldn't object either if I had to. For those who hasn't stayed in the Monterey Peninsula before, accommodations are expensive. Even a 2 star motel lodging generally cost $100. The pricing for Olympia would be a bit higher than a...
