“Great Location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Hotel is not the Ritz but the staff was friendly and the location is perfect. I would gladly stay again, we had a great night, wish we had stayed longer. 10 Min walk to the Fishermans Wharf, 20 min to the cannery.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Stayed here for three nights in early March with my wife and adult son. Booked an ocean view third floor room and used a Trip Advisor coupon which made the rate very reasonable. We had a double queen room and the second bed made the room a bit crowded, but it was still comfortable. The room's a bit dated, but clean and well maintained. Yes, the bathroom is small as others have stated and I can see that big folks may feel cramped. Having the sink outside of the bathroom is a plus for a party of three. The WiFi was fast and free.

The best thing about this property is it's location. OK, not the greatest ocean view from the room, but I don't think you'll find a better one in this area for the price. Besides a great view is just across the street at Lover's Point park and we took advantage of that every morning to start our day. It's a beautiful walk to the aquarium and Cannery Row. Great not having to look for parking over there. Close to lots of good restaurants on Lighthouse Ave too.

If you're looking for a luxury hotel with lots of amenities and you plan on spending lots of time lounging at the hotel then this probably isn't a good choice for you. But, if you want a nice home base for exploring the area and you enjoy waking up to an ocean view and a filling breakfast then you'll find this inn just lovely!

I find it very difficult to comprehend the favourable reviews on tripadvisor. We were checked in by a lady who took forever to deal with the formalities. We asked where the bar was and were told that a glass of wine was available on Saturdays (this was Thursday). We struggled up the fire escape to our (outside) landing. We met some very dodgy characters roaming around and were glad to reach our room, until we opened the door. The floor was occupied by two double beds. The en suite bathroom was a cupboard containing a loo and shower, the washhand basin was in the bedroom. The smell was disgusting. The view was of the back of the building in front. I understood why my email asking for a bottle of champagne to be ready for our arrival had been ignored. We left immediately and stayed in the most wonderful hotel in Carmel. If you are a back packer go for it otherwise.....................

Dear Kipper_11

Thanks for taking the time to review our hotel. As a small, independent property, we value our customers and their feedback. Our interaction with our valued guests allow us to offer a better choice when visiting the Monterey Peninsula.

We have reviewed your reservation and provided additional training to our staff to assure that the check-in process is both attentive and efficient for all of our guests. We also apologize that your champagne was not delivered as ordered and have taken measures to ensure a more detailed special request process. We pride ourselves on our customer service and will always take the necessary steps to improve on that important part of the Lovers Point Inn experience.

While we are certainly concerned that you were not happy with our hotel, we felt it necessary to address some of your statements. To begin, we do not have a bar or restaurant attached to the hotel, nor do we publicize that we do. We have researched all of our third party partners and found no mention that we offer that amenity. Additionally, we offer a glass elevator that is easily accessible if guests choose not to utilize our wide, code-certified and well-lit stairways.

Again, thank you for your feedback and safe travels in the future!

Sincerely,

Diamond Hunter
Owner

The people were friendly and the room was clean but we paid extra for a "ocean view" and ended up with the view of another hotel. Deffinately not worth the extra money! We would have rather had a ground level room and paid less. We did complain to the front desk but they were unwilling to refund us the difference and they didn't have any other rooms available. We felt like we got scammed.

This was the second time I have stayed at Lover's Point Inn and it was just as great as the first time. I think the rooms were remodeled since the last time I was there, they are very clean and if you get a 3rd floor room (like I did) you will get a beautiful view to the peninsula and Lover's Point Park. The room itself is small, but it is very clean and cozy. It is located just a few minutes from Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf.
I highly recommend you stay here.

Room Tip: 3rd floor rooms, get an amazing view.

This is a lovely Inn in a great spot, the people that work there are friendly, helpful and fun. We were on the third floor so we had a beautiful view of the ocean and Lovers Point park. The room was fine but the bed was a bit soft and showed the indents of past visitors. We would recommend this place for anyone wanting to visit Pacific Grove, Ca.

Room Tip: Third floor room for the great views

As usual I book flights and hotel on the amazingly convenient hipmunk.com (my best travel advice to all you travelers - why does tripadvisor not just buy these guys out to create the fully seamless experience?), but this time, I used hipmunk only for hotel booking since we drove over from the Bay Area for one night. Very efficient and helpful front desk. Smaller room size as noted by others and the 3rd floor has the best view, closer to the main office side. Very clean and fresh interior. Had the king bed on 3rd floor. A very nice continental breakfast the next morning and you can take your breakfast back to the room. Lots of scenic walking along the beach, either south, which is more rustic, or north towards the Cannery row which is 1 mile away. Wife and I had a great time. We recommend El Torito in Monterey for Mexican food.

Room Tip: 3rd floor, closer to main office for best view.
