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

We were very pleased with our stay at Lighthouse Lodge & Cottages. Our room was located across the street from where you check in. The room was clean & spacious; the bed was comfortable; the gas fireplace added a romantic touch. Our little patio faced the houses and ocean behind our room. Breakfast was served in a lovely, large well... More

TA and other sites have this listed as a 3 star place, but like Motel 6 or less. We found a deal for $150 a night and after looking at the hotels photos (bait and switch using the higher end rooms photos) on-line we decided to give it a try. Bad idea!!!! The room had mold in several areas of... More

I love Pacific Grove and Monterey and was looking for a place where I could take my dog. I found the Lighthouse Lodge and have stayed there each time afterwards when I went to the Monterey Bay. The rooms are spacious and the beds are very comfortable. The rooms on the 2nd floor have balconies and some have views of... More

I also bought the recent Groupon, and felt thoroughly misled. Whatever they charge per night regularly, it wasn't worth the reduced rate of $88 per night on Groupon. While the property is perfectly located near the ocean in Pacific Grove, and the nearby cemetery guarantees quiet nights, the room was dismal - room was dark, brown nylon curtain, a 1-inch... More

I always check TripAdvisor before I book a room, but this time I relied on a recommendation from another facility that accepts dogs (as does Lighthouse). I assumed it would be similar quality and have some of the same amenities. My room was the lowest priced one (queen). I didn't check the other room offers, as I should have. If... More

I stayed at this hotel because I had a Groupon, which cost $115. There are two properties, the one where I stayed, and a more expensive one half a block away, which includes a wine and appetizer reception and a chef-cooked breakfast. (The front desk said those rooms were over $200.) Our room was pretty standard, though it did have... More

We were there in October for a wedding. Very nice time! The rooms are nice but need a little work. The windows weren't very functional in our room so it did get a little warm at night. The rooms would be nicer if there were ceiling fans, due to no air conditioning. But all in all the facility was nice... More

We stayed here for two nights in September. Our room was spacious, nicely decorated and comfortable with the added extra of a fireplace. There was also a balcony but we did not make much use of it. There is a cemetery next door, which could put some people off but we were not bothered by it. The complimentary breakfast was... More

This hotel is very pleasant, clean and quiet. The location is hard to beat, just a little stroll to some of the most beautiful tide pools and vistas in Calif. We were able to sit on a bench and watch whales pass by, saw at least a dozed deer during our 2 night visit. The stay includes breakfast and coffee... More
