Our children live in Pacific Grove so when we visit we look for reasonably priced, clean, and comfortable accommodations. The Monarch Resort has been our choice destination for the past several years. The rooms are quiet, easily accessible and reasonably priced. The location makes it easy to get around to all attractions and the beaches. The resort is well worth... More

My wife and I met another couple at this hotel; they had stayed there on prior visits and we went along with their choice of accommodations. The Monarch Resort is easy to find and there is ample parking around the property. The facility itself is pretty well appointed with a nice (although small) pool in the center of the main... More

We stayed here after the hotel we booked via Hotwire.com was apparently cancelled by Expedia, even though it was paid for in full. The lady at the Sunset Inn where we were supposed to stay, found us this room. Even though the decor was a bit 80's and a little worn, it was spotlessly clean. We had a slight problem... More

We were placed in this hotel by hotels.com after the hotel I booked a month previous cancelled our reservation literally as I was getting on the airplane due to "overbooking"! What?? Another review for another time. Seeing that I couldn't take the time to research another hotel out as I was getting on the plane, I accepted hotel.com's offer to... More

This hotel, located in Pacific Grove, CA, is at the tip of the peninsula and just blocks from 17 Mile Drive. If you opt for a room with a fireplace, you lose the balcony..so the choice is yours. The room was clean; the beds comfortable and the staff was very accommodating. Not the least bit a tourist "trap," it's a... More

Very clean and nice staff , good continental breakfast too. The pool is a salt water pool w a hot tub as well, only bad thing is how the pool closes early, feel it should be open later but thats just my opinion

Staying at the Monarch Resort in Pacific Grove has become a yearly anniversary tradition for us. This Spring we included our lifelong friends who we flew in from the East Coast to enjoy a three week trek from San Francisco to Big Sur. I look forward each year to our stay at the Monarch! It may not be the fanciest... More

We stayed here for a night. We were a group of 3 families, with children ranging from ages 3 to 13. Good experience. Friendly staff. Only thing I didn't understand was the price difference between a room with fireplace and without fireplace.

My wife and I tried this motel for the first time as we visit Pacific Grove two or three times a year. It is an older place that had been renovated to some degree. The staff was welcoming and pleasant. The room was average but was clean and orderly. I was impressed by the bath towels that were Real towels... More
