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!!!

Recently remodeled the rooms are spacious, clean and comfortable. The beds are amazing. Good little breakfast and a short walk to the most amazing beach in the world! It is an excellent value for this area. I would recommend it !

One of the nicest Best Western hotels we've been to. Perhaps because this one has been recently renovated and used to be condos in a residential area. The two room suite was very spacious, clean and contemporary. One room had a king bed, the other a queen bed, each with a large screen TV and a nice balcony to boot.... More

This a great reasonably priced location to explore the Monterey and Carmel area from. Right near 17 mile drive entrance. and a short drive to Cannery Row as well as Carmel. Breakfast in minimal but also convenient to stores to pick up additional needs.

I belabored where to stay in Pacific Grove since the spots there seem to be kind of "homespun" bed and breakfasts. I chose this hotel based on the ratings given on Tripadvisor. It is a little unusual in that this location is a converted condo complex, but I think it was a good thing. I had a garage to park... More

We stayed there over new years weekend. It was so quiet that you would have never know it was News Years Eve. The rooms were nice. The location was wonderful! Such a short walk to the beach and the tucked in a nice area. Close to downtown PG and great little eating places.

Great motel. Feels very "at home" because of the way it is laid out. almost like a little enclave community. A paver drive with covered parking for those that arrive early enough in the afternoon. Definitely upper class feel. Good building materials and well kept. It is located in the middle of a residential neighborhood. Only one draw back. .... More

We stayed in a room with a King bed. It was clean and good size. Bathroom is huge, large counter but needs more towel racks. There is only 1 small rack to hang hand towel and 2 bath towels to dry.

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
