We stayed one night at the Lighthouse Motel though we had reservations for two nights. What a disappointment in this place. Old in every way, I don't think it has been renovated in years! The showers are old and difficult to turn on. The area for breakfast is laughable. The parking is terrible and inconvenient. Would never stay there again

Stopped off to view the ocean. Nice park,bike, and running lanes . It's nice to sit on the benches and watch the ocean waves.

Lovers Point was a short walk down the hill from our rental, and a nice stroll after eating at Peppers...what a wonderful panorama! Water, sand and mountains in the distance, breathtaking!

A bit tourist infested, but it is a resort town. Great photogenic trees, nice rock formations and the beach is warm. (Sheltered from the breezes). Good diving and snorkling. Place to rent kayaks and such in season.

This is a fantastic place to spend the day, or at least a few hours. The park has some interesting sculptures, a grassy area for napping or relaxing, picnic tables and a BBQ for a family gathering, and a gorgeous view of the peninsula. The restaurant Massaro & Santos offers spectacular views. The point itself has large rocks people can... More

Second visit to lover's point. Excellent views, weather was perfect and a nice stay at the Knights Inn. Wild life included sea lion, otter, deer and sea birds. Go for the relaxation!

Lovers Point in Pacific Grove is a must see. I happen to be lucky to be staying at Seven Gabes Inn, which is directly across the road. Great place to relax and enjoy the views, park and water.

Spent our honeymoon right across from Lover's Point at the Seven Gables Inn in 1989. We've been back to Pacific Grove every year since (sometimes, several times a year).
