This motel exceeded my expectations in many ways. It is a village of individual buildings each containing several suites. Our topmost suite was very quiet and felt like a treehouse looking out through the sliding glass of the balcony. I love that you can sit out there and enjoy the trees and birds. The rooms were spacious with a double... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times over the years. It was on the run down side when it was a Howard Johnsons but it changed to Best Western earlier this year and the new owners have done a lot of new improvements. The rooms are large and. for the area, one of the best price wise. Our average... More

I spent one night here. It was a comfortable night followed by a good breakfast. The property is across from the Asilomar State Park residence which fronts right on the sea, not far away where I had been doing a meditation retreat. I booked through Booking.com and got a good price. The office had a new designer feeling and the... More

From reviews dating back a few years, we were hesitant to book at this place, but more recent reviews were promising and the hotel is now Best Western and not HoJo. We stayed only one night and it was a good experience. There was some termite (it is in California!) and other work going on but the rooms occupied were... More

We had an excellent stay at this hotel! Great location not far from downtown and the beach! A quick 26 miles from Big Sur. The staff was so helpful and friendly! The room was very clean, comfortable beds and large bathroom. We will definitely stay here next time we are in the Pacific Grove area!

Wow! Rooms were more than expected. Manager and Pam were very helpful and went the extra mile to accommodate our group. We will be back. Hotel appears to be a condo converision which was well done. Fireplace suite was very comfortable.

Nice stay. Big room. But location wise it's next door to a lot of other cheaper alternatives that looked pretty much the same but it's $50 more expensive. Deer roaming about in the morning was a cool thing to see

I spent 5 days and nights here in a king room with a fireplace. The location is fantastic if you are attending a conference at Asilomar and not staying on site and is only 2 short blocks away and makes for a nice relaxing walk before and after your conference. This location is the same distance to Asilomar State Beach.... More
