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

I stayed at the Lighthouse Lodge May 26 and 27 for a two day golf getaway. We used to stay at this facility all of the time for our summer vacations dating back to 1973. The only reason I gave it as high as a 3 is because of the location, people in the office were really nice, the hot... More

We stay at the Lighthouse Lodge for a few days every year and have done so for the last 15 years. It is in a beautiful, serene location out on the point in Pacific Grove. While the accommodations have always been nice, in the past year the have remodeled the rooms and upgraded the breakfast offerings. These changes have enhanced... More

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
