This outdated and run down place is being remodeled right now. Our room and bath were lovely. Top floor had high wood plank ceilings, nice furnishings, etc. New bath. The outside of the building, the pool area, the breakfast room, all need a re -do and perhaps they are planning to do so. What we missed were some "grounds" --a... More

We are a glass-half-full kind of couple. So we surprised each other with the laundry list of things that were bothering us about this room. Admittedly, smallish things, but they added up as our stay progressed. We stayed in a room recently renovated, and they did a nice job on that. However, we got a double bed rather than the... More

Reserved this place through HotelTonight. Knew we weren't getting luxury based on both the price and mediocre reviews. What I wasn't expecting was a total s-hole of a property. We were given the last room available - room 200, just over the reception office. The room was old... but old as in the carpets and furniture were decades old, carrying... More

Another great stay and in fact becoming a second home and vacation location. So convenient to the 17-Mile Drive, Monterey, Big Sir, etc. Morning breakfast is off the menu and the service is outstanding. Also includes afternoon wine, cheese, etc.

Having gotten a Groupon for one of the lodge rooms, we went to Lighthouse where we had stayed in years past and liked quite a lot. I think the room we were given was one of the last that had not been improved (they were working next door and tossing the furniture and TV that were just like the ones... More

We stayed in one of the cottages, which is across the street from the lodge. It is close to Ocean View Bl. and Sunset Dr. also the Monarch Butterfly Habitat. The dining room is at the cottages. The units were large with a kitchenette, but dated and need renovation. The beds were large and comfortable. In the afternoon, they have... More

Or cups in the room or a working coffee pot- Since we did not get refills on coffee, I guess that was OK- We were on the Lodge side, overlooking the cemetery, so very quiet- We were told we could go to the Cottage side, which is where they had the nice wine and snacks....That side was great, until we...

We stayed in room #111 in mid Feb 2015. There were dozen flies at the entrance way. As soon as we unlocked and opened the door, 1/2 dozen flies came in. The room looked very rundown. Back patio sliding door windows were so filthy and hazy. Only view was the fallen tree directly to the patio. A towel found with... More

I stayed for 3 nights and 4 days. My room was right by the front office. But it was quite and comfortable just the same. Breakfast was average but good. The staff was helpful and courteous. I don't spend much time in a motel room. I only book one to shower and sleep. So the Lighthouse Lodge met both needs... More

We booked a 1 night stay on January 7th, 2015 as a little getaway from the valley. When we arrived at the guest registration they said we would be staying in the cottages across the street, which I was glad because a cemetery is attached to the other property. The cottage area is nice from the outside but the rooms... More
