“Wonderful Rainy Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 5, 2014

My son and I and his friend stayed at the Deer Haven Inn recently for 2 nights. It was pouring most of the time we were there but the room was just lovely, now that it has been renovated. We had a fireplace, small refrigerator, microwave and a coffee pot ! It was very quite at night so you were able to sleep. The front desk lady Lisa, I think was her name, was very nice and helpful.
Can't wait to stay here again, very close to the beach as well !

This place lived up to its name. Just walking down the road we say a family of Deer. It was so sweet. The newly remodeled rooms made me feel at home. I didn't feel the need to wear my slippers or check for dirty sheets as I have done in EVERY hotel in my 30+ years of travel. My son and I fell in love with the fireplace. Only thing missing was a Hot Tub.

We just live a little over an hour away but needed a day away. I chose the Deer Haven Inn from a list of properties because of it's charm, location, and price (not to mention it was dog friendly!)
The room had everything we needed and the fireplace was definitely an added bonus. It's a short and easy walk to the beach on a nice boardwalk and again, location...location...location. Pacific Grove is nestled just minutes between Carmel and Monterey but isn't ruined with crowded and bustling streets and major traffic congestion. And the staff at the Inn were AWESOME! They were all very friendly and super accommodating...and nice...Yep...Really nice. We'll stay there again for sure.

Stayed here for 3 nights during a conference at Asilomar. You can't beat the location if you're doing anything at Asilomar, as it is literally across the street (closer to some of the facilities than even people staying on the grounds). They did a great job with updates and renovations of the older motel, with nice countertops and furniture. Fireplaces in the rooms was a nice touch. The continental breakfast was okay, enough to keep me going during the morning. For the price, this place was a great deal, in a nice location. The only restaurant within walking distance though is Fishwife (which isn't bad at all).

Room Tip: All rooms face the parking lot, so I don't really think any are better than others.

Spent two nights here. Great location with an easy drive to the ocean and the shops and restaurants. Flat screen TV that worked well, and the beds were comfortable with lots of pillows. You can tell they've tried to keep it updated. Unfortunately, there's not much they can do about the old, noisy heaters. It takes a long time for the room to warm up. We did enjoy the gas fireplace and, once you turn it on, it stays on. It's not on a timer like so many of them. They've managed to provide plenty of places to put all your stuff in a small room. Breakfast area is very small, with only two tables, so we took the food back to our room. The staff was pleasant and efficient.

We have tried a few of the lodgings in the Pacific Grove area. Stumbled on this one as a last minute accommodation and was greatly surprised. This traditional motel has updated the rooms to a current look (and comfy too). Fireplace in room makes for a warm environment in the usually foggy area. Friendly, helpful staff along with a great location (quiet but close to town) makes for a very good choice. Will stay there again next trip to Pacific Grove.

The location of this hotel is great and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were standard motel type rooms, the fireplace was nice. My daughter had bites on her after the first night so I think there were bed bugs. There was also a bug in the bed and a couple on the walls. The sheets and towels also had stains on them. I would not stay here again because of that-its a shame as its a great location but cleanliness is a must for me, I can live with 'tired' furnishings if everything is clean!!

VictorandRP, Owner at Deer Haven Inn, responded to this review, December 24, 2013
We would like to apologize for any inconvenience that you have suffered during your stay with us. We take any issue regarding the cleanliness of our hotel very seriously. This proved to be more difficult to pinpoint and address however, because we were not made aware from you or any other guest of any of the issues described, and our attempt to contact you through private messaging has gone unanswered. Nonetheless, since this review we had a thorough inspection of all of our rooms through Clark, a foremost specialist in pest control and abatement, and no pest activity was found in any of the rooms. Our linens are cleaned and sanitized for us through Mission Linen, and our housekeeping staff is taught to inspect every piece of linen before it is to be used in our rooms. Housekeeping has been made aware of the issue, and more time has been allotted for them to perform this inspection for a higher level of quality assurance.

When guests stay with us for multiple nights, it gives us the opportunity to address any issues that the guest may have and gives us a chance to make the duration your stay a more pleasurable experience. Unfortunately during your stay this opportunity did not arise, but please contact us personally. We look forward to hearing from you and resolving any of your concerns.
