Or cups in the room or a working coffee pot- Since we did not get refills on coffee, I guess that was OK- We were on the Lodge side, overlooking the cemetery, so very quiet- We were told we could go to the Cottage side, which is where they had the nice wine and snacks....That side was great, until we...

We stayed in room #111 in mid Feb 2015. There were dozen flies at the entrance way. As soon as we unlocked and opened the door, 1/2 dozen flies came in. The room looked very rundown. Back patio sliding door windows were so filthy and hazy. Only view was the fallen tree directly to the patio. A towel found with... More

I stayed for 3 nights and 4 days. My room was right by the front office. But it was quite and comfortable just the same. Breakfast was average but good. The staff was helpful and courteous. I don't spend much time in a motel room. I only book one to shower and sleep. So the Lighthouse Lodge met both needs... More

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
