5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2014

This hotel has just been renovated and I have been informed that it's going to be part of Great Western Group. Each suite is very spacious, designed to accommodate small family. The dining area and kitchen is great and all essential amenities are there. You will not be disappointed to stay there but you should be aware that because all buildings are constructed from wood, sound insulation may not be ideal.

Room Tip: The top floor is quieter but there is no lift

The architecture and layout of the room were really great - a split-level suite with a separate kitchen/dining area, lounge and sunken bedroom. The bathroom was a little small, but otherwise guests have everything they could need. The hotel is in the process of renovation, and I understand it will become a Best Western shortly. It seems it used to be an apartment block, and is currently in the process of being converted. The parking is rather restricted, and the breakfast room is decidedly cramped if you happen to hit it during the more popular times. You're also not within walking distance of the sea, or the stores & restaurants. But overall, it was good value and we'll certainly be returning. We also liked the lazy, laid-back atmosphere of Pacific Grove, having always stayed in busy Monterey or Carmel before.

We had stayed at Howard Johnson Inn and Suites Monterey Peninsula Pacific Grove a couple weeks ago. The hotel conveniently locates in a more quiet neighborhood close to the beach. The rooms were recently renovated and so it's quite clean and new. In fact, they were still in the process of renovating more rooms. The breakfast selections were decent. The only thing is that the hair dryer in the room is not working properly. It's one of the ones that was supposed to attach to the wall but it's not... So it's very difficult to use it...

Overall, I would recommend this hotel!

A bit off the beaten path but in a quiet location. Female at front desk was extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. Newly redecorated room was clean and had all the comforts of home. This hotel was once a condo complex. Each condo separated into 3 units. That felt a little weird but it was very comfortable. Parking is tight. Everything is as it should be here. Breakfast is your standard run of the mill continental type. Note to owner: Please don't make your guests wait for employees to get their breakfast first, it's just not right. I would stay here again if the opportunity came up again.
