Lighthouse is usually our go to place to stay in Pacific Grove due to the close proximity to Point Pinos grill, the hot, cook to order breakfast, and the comfortable walk to the beach. However, just got back from a 1 night getaway with my wife and I will be considering a new place to spend my money. I booked... More

We checked in here without previously booking and got a cheaper deal, otherwise it's a bit pricey. The rooms are beautiful and newly refurbished, very nice bathroom, good amenities. The breakfast was a bit ordinary unfortunately, though the lady doing the catering worked very hard.

Not close to the water - so location did not make up for the fact there was no A/C. The temperature outside was beautiful but with no screens, it is scary to keep your windows open at night in an unfamiliar area. The room was so small you could not keep the drapes open even IF you had the windows... More

I loved this lodge. The location was in great proximity to Monterey and the 17 mile drive. Rooms were spacious and clean. The staff was super helpful. You're walking distance from very scenic coastline which makes for a great sunset. The only downside is that some rooms look out to a cemetery but truth be told it's not a depressing... More

We have stayed at the LHL for several years and enjoy the proximity to the ocean, restaurants, shopping and outdoor activities. We liked the BBQ in the afternoon and even though the rooms are older, they are always very clean. Recently they stopped the BBQ and the rooms are in need of some sprucing up. It's time to change out... More

Our family just had a big family reunion at the Lighthouse Lodge and Cottages. There were about 75 people and we occupied all the cottages and some of the rooms in the lodge. It was a great place to hold the reunion. They have a large meeting room and even served a delicious buffet breakfast and wine and cheese reception... More

My mom (56) and I (29, female) stayed here one night during a road-trip up Highway 1. I was initially nervous about the reviews, but we stayed in a nicely renovated room (we did not see any renovations going on during our stay). Area is extremely safe and within a long walk or short drive to dining, shopping, and the... More

We just stayed at the Lighthouse Lodge and Cottages and we were greeted by a wonderful front desk clerk Kylie she was swamped but handled it very professionally and we got the room we wanted that we made our reservation with the manager Linda who went out of her way to accommodate us and especially our Mom.

Lovely location getting a little face lift. Wonderful room on the second floor in the Lodge section. Walking distance to the beach and short drive to Pacific Grove. I would definitely stay again. There are cottages for families. Whether close by or far away, consider the Monterey Peninsula. Wonderful highlight of Northern California.

We have been very happy with the Llighthouse Inn. Very comfortable beds in a quiet location. The shower was good and hot. While reno's are happening we had an upgrade to the lodge breakfast which was appreciated. The area is fantastic just a short walk to the coast walking track. Our room overlooked the cemetery, which may freak some people... More
