We were pleasantly surprised with our recent visit here. While the facility is "dated," it was clean and scheduled for remodeling soon. Our room was pleasant and quiet. The closet door didn't work so well, as neither did the sliding glass door opening to the cemetery behind us; but we got them working well enough to use. The morning breakfast... More

We stayed in the lodge room with a king bed. We needed a dog friendly place and this place was great. The place had a good breakfast in the morning. It is walking distance to see the sea crash on the rocky beach which was nice. The view from the room was an old graveyard do that was kind of... More

I checked in and ten minutes later I checked out. There are misleading photos, one of a lighthouse building (which is not on the property), and then photos of building I never saw. This is basically a 1950s-type motel which is now labeled "a lodge and cottages." We were given a "cottage" which was really a motel room in the... More

it is really sad about this property. It is old, run down and down right filthy. We checked in for two nights. The first suite we were given was discusting. The carpets were black with dirt and the mattress had a big stain on it. No way we would stay there. They were very nice about us changing rooms. The... More

I tired to cancel after reading all the negative reviews. Purchased through Priceline and would never do that again. Not because of the accommodations, but Priceline's service was horrible. Buildings are old, but clean with comfortable beds. Cemetery was not an issue, saw deer roaming by our patio. Overall it had charm. They are redoing it and it will be... More

At first, front desk put us in a small, dark room with no screen for the patio door, and facing the parking lot, but I asked for a better room and was promptly placed in a much nicer, roomier, and lighter room. Yes, we were facing the cemetery, but in a graceful way. The room had a balcony with screen... More

This is a rather charming motel nestled in a quiet area of trees and a very short car ride to the town of Pacific Grove, which in itself is quite charming! We had our 7-yr. old grandson with us and our 2-bed room was perfect for our needs. (It came with a lovely fireplace, but we didn't use it). Our... More

I have mixed feelings about this hotel. The lodge room we had was spacious, with a King bed and fireplace. It was clean enough. But it did not have air conditioning. We left the patio door open all night which kept the room at a comfortable temperature. Backing up to a cemetery, I assumed we would be safe from anyone... More

We upgraded from a lodge room to a cottage room and we enjoyed it very much. Yes it is an older place, but there is a lot of history there, and the cypress trees are beautiful and the breakfast is delicious and the wine tasting and food was wonderful, the fireplace was great. We loved the bed, so comfy and... More

I stayed here years ago when my children were younger. I was excited to bring my teenage soon back. What had been a quirky but nice property was now showing significant signs of deferred maintenance. Previously stayed in an upstairs king room that was very nice - this was a double-double across the parking lot. While there were some signs... More
