This is one of the nicest BWs we have been in. Great neighborhood and very quiet. Short walk thru Asilomar to the beach. Nice layout of the rooms, some with garage type parking. Adequate breakfast. Good wifi. Nice staff and well kept grounds. My only criticism mite be the loud heat and AC fan. Other than that, a great stay.

My husband and I brought our bikes and we rode to the beach. This hotel is about a 8 minute drive to Cannary Row and we were... More

This newly renovated hotel is in a great location - quiet, safe, peaceful neighborhood. A quick drive to the aquarium, the adorable Pacific grove town, and the butterfly sanctuary. Walking/running/bike trails are nearby along with the Monterey Bay shoreline. The suites are a good size for a family of 3 with a small sofa bed for 1 and a king... More

This turned into a most excellent experience because of the General Manager's efforts and ability to fix the mess that Booking.com created. Ralph and his wife run an excellent establishment and represent BEST WESTERN at it's best !!!

The rooms were very nice, the staff was helpful and the grounds secure and well kept. Considering the area, this was an exceptional value. The hotel is located between the downtown area and the coast, bike rentals are available though we brought our own. A lovely weekend spot!

This place is nestled in the Pacific Grove neighborhood. It's walking distance to the beach, butterfly grove, lighthouse property. Everything from the gardens, garages to the bedrooms and bathroom is meticulously clean. The rooms are modernly styled with neutral colors. I plan to come back to this place. Love, love, love it!!!
