You are all the way out on the Peninsula, and only a couple of blocks from the ocean. It's lovely, and the rooms are generous and clean. It's very quiet, so you're not right on the Boulevard, but close to everything. The staff was warm and helpful.

The Olympia Lodge is an older property that has been completely refreshed. The plantation shutters on all the windows are a unique and attractive update. The upper-level rooms have sloped ceilings with exposed beams. The bathroom and television could be updated, but at least the TV has Comcast digital cable with on-screen guide and a working remote, which is more... More

Olympia Lodge is a short walk to Asilomar Beach and Conference Center and a short drive to Pacific Groves' shops, restaurants & museums. Complimentary breakfast was not luxurious, but ample to get you started for the day. The people at the desk are helpful and full of information and room was clean and spacious. I would stay here again. We... More

Although outdated (TV, carpet, bathroom), it was clean, comfortable beds and a great winter value for a get-away! Reminded us of a ski lodge! Our initial room had no window/slider we could safely leave open at night so they pleasantly upgraded us to a balcony room. Easy walk to ocean...or into charming town.

A little worn, but that made this place feel more authentic and not corporate. My stay was clean, quiet, comfortable and reasonably priced. I'd stay there again. The breakfast was minimal, but adequate, and the staff was friendly and helpful. I'd stay here again.

I too booked a Travelzoo voucher. I stayed in 205 last year. I paid for an upgrade to 209 this year. The beds are comfortable. the rooms are nicely decorated but on a budget. Im giving this place 4 stars but it does have to do with the value and overall good experiences I've had here. It is a 4*... More

I bought a Groupon last year, but couldn't take advantage of the special b/c everything was solidly booked. (We stayed at Wilkie's Inn instead - no comparison). So I used the paid value for a one-night stay this Christmas. I had originally booked the room for the Sunday before and called back after a week to see if there was... More

We used a travel zoo voucher. $119 for two nights. We enjoyed our stay very much. It wasn't a fancy place but it was clean, the room was decent sized. No Mildew at all in the bathroom like one person reviewed here. It was in a very nice location. Not right on the beach, but close by. It was quiet... More

Because we had a Travelzoo voucher, we stayed two nights during Thanksgiving week this year. We also paid extra for an upgrade to ocean view, which was a waste of money. The ocean horizon was barely visible above the tops of trees. The hotel is extremely confusing in its layout. The staff keep saying, "It's a small property; you can't... More

We stayed here for 2 nights and it was decent. They still use actual keys which I have not seen in such a long time. Rooms are clean. Breakfast area is small since it is at the lobby but it still worked for us. Place is very near the butterflies! Also not far from the Aquarium.
