“Nice budget minded dog friendly option”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2014

Pleasant check in, decent off season pricing, attractve grounds, comfortable little cottage style rooms, good beds. My only complaint is the $30 per stay pet fee. It is high. However if you stay a few days,it is overall good value. Nice spot and I would stay here again. The fridge and microwave were handy

We were told there were no lower priced affordable places in Pacific Grove but found this nice establishment..dog friendly..but dog fee was expensive if you are staying 1 night...$30.00. We ended up staying 2 nights..reducing dog fee to $15.00 a night. Better the longer you stay with your pet. It was very clean ..beds were comfortable and staff and check in was good. One small criticism..the tiny shower curtain didn't reach the top of the tub...so we flooded the bathroom floor with water. Would come back here again our trip back north. Overall the grounds were well kept and attractive...rooms had fridge and microwave. We felt comfortable and safe here..truck was loaded with our belongings and we also didn't worry about the parking. Lovely town.

Room Tip: Only certain dog rooms were available.

stayed in a small cottage in the back #115 Bed was hard and TV terrible. only have about 25 channels and all had bad reception. Not a big deal because we did not go on vacation to watch TV. Room was clean but they only give you2 towels so if you take a shower before heading out for the night you wont have a towel in am. Coffee pot needed to be moved into bathroom for use. pool and hot tub are across the street (too far to use)

Room Tip: ask for cottages 115, 116 they are at back .

This summer, the three of us extensively travelled in California , Arizona and Utah and stayed in a wide variety of hotels. We are not difficult and on the whole we were rather satisfied with the price/quality ratio of the hotels in which the stayed. There is one notable exception , where there is no relationship whatsoever between quality and price , the "Sea breeze" motel in Monterey, Pacific Grove. After an unfriendly welcome , we stayed there for two nights in a room, so small, you could hardly move, on the first floor, with thin walls, old and ramshackle furniture, an old noisy fridge, a Wi-Fi which broke down several times in the evening when we were writing our emails and all this for the unbelievable price of around $200 per night, for the three of us, taxes included . To find a parking space at night required a lot of maneuvering . Complimentary breakfast consisted of a plastic cup of coffee and a muffin. So on the whole, this motel was a very disappointing experience,not to be repeated, to put it very mildly.

I am used to travel with low budget. This place is by far the worst place to stay. Terrible value, rooms are not clean. The doors are thin and seem insecure. Rooms are noisy and they face the street. Curtains are old and do not keep light from coming in. Rooms are incredibly small. They smell. Breakfast is a joke. It is served at the office and there is no tables or chairs to sit and enjoy a cup of coffee. It is a very basic breakfast.

Cables were hanging making them dangerous for kids. Signs are old and wearing. This shows that they don't care about guest comfort.

Pictures posted are nicer than the real thing.

Probably the only acceptable thing is the High-Speed Internet. I streamed an HD movie.

I made a huge mistake staying here and they did not let me cancel it. If you can pay a little more and go to a nicer place. I stayed in room 427.

This is an old-style single story motel within an easy walk to downtown Pacific Grove and the shoreline path. When we called for reservations and when we checked in, the staff was very warm and friendly. At check-in we received some discount coupons for various activities and restaurants in the area--a nice touch.

The owners have put a lot of effort into updating this lodge and the sister property across the street. The exteriors looked freshly painted, and had picnic tables and umbrellas scattered around the grassy areas and under the trees, creating a charming ambiance. Our room, located near the pool, was quiet and clean, with a very comfortable king-sized bed and pleasing decor. There was a phone for local calls, a TV, a microwave and mini-fridge, hairdryer and wi-fi access. Towels were clean, but basic. Soap and shampoos were included amenities. Lighting was adequate. A color brochure in the room detailed many of the local restaurants--also a nice touch. Across the road, in the main office, they served a continental style breakfast with juice, coffee, muffins, etc. The one chair in our oom was comfortable, but very low to the ground which was a bit awkward. Otherwise we were pleased with our choice and would choose to stay there again.

Room Tip: This area of Pacific Grove was generally pretty quiet with minimal traffic noise. Ask for near the...
