We had a tiny, tiny room in this motel, but in a great location and an okay price. This was the only place we could find in Pacific Grove, but glad that we found it! The hot tub was not even warm and the pool was freezing! Other than that it was a good price and perfect location, so I... More

Our room was very small, but it was clean. It is also dog-friendly and I was really impressed that they gave us a dog bed, treats, and doggy bags for our dogs. They left extra sheets to cover the furniture, to protect from the dogs, which I can understand, but the sheets had some stains (it did seem clean though,... More

Spent Friday-to-Sunday at the Sea Breeze Inn in beautiful Pacific Grove, California, with my family (7 adults and 4 children)-the accommodations were excellent; the management and house staff were pleasant and extremely helpful; the rooms were clean, and, the location--near the ocean, close to the Monterrey Bay Aquarium, etc. was outstanding. Juice, coffee and muffins were readily available each morning... More

First - the Sea Breeze Inn & Cottages (SBI) and the Sea Breeze Lodge (SBL) are run out of the same office and share some amenities, are even painted the same color scheme, but are not the same - Careful, you need to know which you are booking, and/or reviewing! Stayed in an "SBI - Standard Queen" room for a... More

POSITIVE location Tranquility Cleanleness Pool Furniture and fixtures of the Room wifi NEGATIVE poor breakfast Stay here has been a "last minute" surprise . WE need to find a new Site for some days and WE were lucky. Only breakfast is poor and served inside the lobby. Staff really friendly and professional. Room very clean.

Two people, two pets, two nights - rented a cottage to reduce voice. Room was clean, furnishings in good shape, but not good scale for long/narrow space, good darkening window treatments, bedding good (washable type), bed unusually high from the floor (floor platform with a box spring and topped with mattress)- could have used a step stool. Bed so high,... More

This was a nice, clean, above average motel. There were just a few things lacking. There was no AC, and no fan except for one that I requested from the office. The staff members were nice and offers good customer service, but nothing above and beyond. Breakfast was good muffins, orange juice and coffee. There is a pool and hot... More

Definitely paying for the location in Pacific Grove. Not that it has views or anything. Our room was $229, a splurge for us. Expected a bit of luxury at the price. This is a $60 room anywhere else. A refrigerator which emits a constant high end hum, one uncomfortable chair, basic cable, everything else o.k., not remarkable. Good mattress. Our... More
