While the location is ideally within walking distance of the beautifful Pacific Grove shore and the Point Pinos lighthouse, the suite I stayed in for three nights was in need of renovation. (There WAS renovation underway in other buildings.) While most amenities like fireplace, flatscreen TV, coffeemaker worked, the carpets were badly soiled and the stairs and walkways needed sweeping.... More

My husband and I stayed at the lodge portion of the property for one night this last weekend. If it hadn't been so late in the afternoon, we would have cancelled and gone elsewhere. The property is run down and and not property maintained. The wood railings and steps leading to the rooms have areas that have rotted away. Upon... More

I have stayed in many hotels over the years. I have paid much, much more for a room but knew the quality to be good so that isn't the reason for my review but this will come up. I have been in historic, dilapidated, old and sometimes disgusting hotels that weren't of the poor quality that this hotel was for... More

We really picked this place last minute because of availability but didn't expect such horrible service. The first eat room that was given to us - we walked I and there was about. A whole bag of chips strewn all over the bed and on the floor. We went back and we were asked remove everything from the room and... More

I had done this on Hotwire and I admit a concern when we first pulled in, as there was definitely a remodel going on with all those sorts of related things in the parking lot and around the buildings. But opening the door to our room, we were very pleasantly surprised. It was very newly and tastefully remodeled and furnished,... More

Our room had the dirtiest, most disreputable old carpet I have ever seen. We wore socks to avoid touching it. The hide-a-bed was worn and lumpy, and the roll-away sagged so badly that we sent it back and had to have two unrelated women sleep in the king bed. They are trying to remodel.

We brought our dog this trip, and have stayed at this location previously 6 times. On arrival, the room was not ready, and delays continued until 5PM. On entering the room, the carpet was riddled with stains from previous animals, the carpet was extremely worn, and wrinkled and puckered from shampooing.The entry door had a 2" gap at the bottom,...

Stayed here for a business conference recently. The front office staff was courteous. I was given a "remodeled room." At first glance the room apeared very nice. However, several things stuck out after a closer look. Fireplace did not work. The balcony screen was off track and laying on it's side on the balcony. The balcony railing itself was very... More

There are so many choices in Pacific Grove I think for the money you could do better. They are in process of renovating. Beds were comfortable, rooms small but adequate. Shower seemed fine until water didn't drain. The fireplace is awkwardly placed and didn't work. Maintenance came by to try to fix it but couldn't. They came back at 8:00... More

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
