“Right price, great location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 23, 2013

My fiancee and I stayed at the Lovers Point Inn in Pacific Grove at the beginning of September, 2013. The trip was a great experience.

The Lovers Point Inn is a lovely place to stay. We only stayed for one night. It is a small motel-style inn that faces the Pacific Ocean. From the doorway to our room we could see Lover's Point itself. There is a small but beautiful park at the base of the point with a path that leads along the coast and goes directly to Cannery Row and points beyond. We walked this path to Cannery Row. This path was a major selling point for us because it was so beautiful and relaxing.

As for the hotel itself, the room was adequate. It wasn't fantastic, it wasn't horrible, it just was. The decor in the room was nice, it was decorated in dark blues and light browns. There was a pretty area set up as a sitting area, with 2 chairs, a table, a coffee table and a small loveseat. I love the idea there, however the room wasn't that much bigger than a standard room, so it felt a little small with all of this extra stuff in there.

The bathroom was HILARIOUS! It is so tiny, you have to practically turn around to get the toilet paper. Make sure you close the door BEFORE you sit down. If not, you won't be able to close the door. Also the showerhead was not fantastic, however I think it was more a of a water pressure. There really wasn't any water pressure at all - the shower was more of just a way to get wet/clean rather than a wonderful relaxing experience. But then again, that is the purpose of a shower. :)

There was a coffee maker, a microwave, a refrigerator and a portable fan in the room. We brought our own coffee, but, as most coffeemakers are nowadays in hotel rooms, it took the pods, not actual filters and ground coffee, so make sure that you take your own filters with you if you are going to bring your own coffee. The refrigerator was awesome - it wasn't the teeny tiny one that you normally find in a hotel room - it was much larger and was able to adequately handle our leftovers from dinner and pretty much anything else we would've wanted to put in there.
I know it sounds weird that there was a portable fan in the room, but it was one of those really nice ones that blow cooled air. As far as we could tell, there wasn't air conditioning in the room, which makes sense for the climate of that area. I am not sure if there was heating, we had no need for it. Our room did not get a cross breeze because our window faced the property next door, so we used the fan while we slept and were still a little warm. I ended up kicking off the covers. The bed was probably one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in in a hotel. Wow! It was so comfortable it was difficult to get up in the morning.

Our overall feeling about our room was that we were glad we were not staying there for an extended period of time, however it was adequate for the one night, and it would have been adequate for a weekend. It didn't seem to flow very well, as the counter top for the vanity area was taken up by the microwave, upon which the coffeemaker sat, which made it feel like nothing was planned out very well.

The hotel staff, however, was very helpful and friendly. Being there for only one night, we didn't have the opportunity or the need to interact very much with the staff, but the interactions we had were positive.

All-in-all, we would probably come back here again because of the location rather than the accomodations.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has a window facing the ocean.

We booked in before 3pm and had to come back for check in. There was a line up for an hour of others doing the same thing. We ended up going across the road and having an early dinner and coming back. Our room was overcrowded with furniture but clean and had a comfortable bed. Took us a while to find the fan thinking at first it was a heater! So glad we found it as room was very hot and the windows did not have security screens. Not really ocean views as all you can see is a tiny view mostly car park and the motel next door. Lift was not working properly. Breakfast was good and the outdoor area is nice.

We really enjoyed our time at this hotel. The view is gorgeous. There is a great restaurant across the street. The people who run the hotel were very nice and welcoming. The room was clean and well kept. We would definitely stay here again.

For some reason I checked my booking for this motel a few days before we arrived and found that my original booking made months before had not been transferred on to the computer system! I made several phone calls but the staff eventually sorted it all out and we were given the room I had booked on arrival. The staff on duty were all very friendly and helpful. Our room was nicely decorated and very clean with a small bathroom and a view of the sea (over another motel) on the 3rd floor. The only thing we didn't like was the balcony running directly outside the window so that everyone walked past. Our room was quiet though and the overall winning factor is the location in Pacific Grove, opposite a small park with the most beautiful views and walks. It was a short, pretty walk along the coastal path to The Cannery where we hired bikes and explored the area. The breakfast area in reception was small but there was a good choice of food and I enjoyed sitting on the pretty street patio outside looking towards the sea. We ate at the excellent restaurant The Beach House each evening (directly across the road). We were so glad that we had stayed here instead of one of the hotels in Monterey as Lover's Point is such a beautiful location!

The folks in the front office were very friendly. I was disappointed that the upgrade to a king room with ocean view ended up having mostly a view of the hotel in between it and the water. There were some rooms at one end that had much better views, and I was disappointed that a couple who arrived and checked in behind us got one of those. The bed was nice, but in such a small room, it was a tight fit. Accommodations were adequate. This was not a bad stay, but I had hoped for more after doing research online prior to the booking.

Room Tip: The best view of the water are a few rooms upstairs and nearest the end where the office is located.
