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.
