well, cute room for me, the husband, adult daughter, but parking is super tight and internet is BAD. Walls very thin, heard the neighbors. No breakfast due to covid but many delightful restaurants and coffee shops within 5 minutes walk. Beach is a one mile walk. Everyone in town very friendly. Food is excellent, especially at Pangea. Window shopping is super fun, Monterey is an 8 minute drive. So location is great, I want to come back but will be staying somewhere else.

We stayed at Briarwood for a long weekend for a girls trip. The area is great and the units were clean, spacious and we had our own private patio area. We would definitely stay again! No WiFi in unit.

BEWARE of the 72 hr cancellation policy! Called the main desk 3 days in advance to notify of needing to drop the last night of reservation due to work, and left message as the clock had just turned 7:01pm. (There is NO ONE to help you at the inn if it isn’t during business hours.) Call was returned next day, AFTER being charged a full stay 2.5 days PRIOR to check in. Who has ever heard of being charged full amount ($1,000+) for a place to stay when check-in is DAYS away? We checked in for our 3 night stay, and explained again we had to leave after 2 nights…but it was at our loss/no credit. If I could have canceled the entire reservation 2.5 days ahead of time, I would have…but then we would have been out over $1,000. We stayed in room #S3… Pros: Clean room with premises in good condition. Friendly cleaning crew/staff. Arta & Augustina especially helpful and informative! Great organic in-room coffee from Carmel Valley Coffee. Cons: Mattresses firm, uncomfortable, and noisy. All windows without screens to keep bugs out. There is NO A/C…the upstairs gets hot/stuffy. No blackout options on windows for sleeping in, or with bright nighttime security lights. Think twice before booking here…I wished we had stayed elsewhere!

Good location, nice room, and pleasant service. However, there were two significant issues: 1. In spite of "bed and breakfast" in the name and "free breakfast" words in the facility description, Briarwood Inn DOES NOT serve breakfast. That will not be a big issue in most towns, but surprisingly there were no good choices for breakfast near the hotel. Of the 3 places suggested by the front desk, one accepted only cash, the second one offered brunch with prior reservations (none available even for the next day), and the third one did not open until 8:30 AM. 2. There were 5 parking places assigned for five rooms (including ours), which sounds good. Except that 3 of them were for compact cars only (even though big SUVs were parked there), leaving little room for our last car. Even more importantly, the driveway is very narrow to make a 90 degree turn into the parking space, without hitting the brick wall. One better be prepared to make forward and backward movements a few times (with someone guidance) to avoid damage to the car.

This is a great find. Right in town so we walked everywhere. Very quiet and clean. We stayed in Stephenson #4 and it had a full kitchen, living room, and bedroom, bathroom. Even had a day bed (single bed) tucked in a corner of the living room for a third person or child. Parking in nearby garage included. Good free wifi. Can't beat the lowered price right now, because they can't serve breakfast. Only small complaint is that their TV provider is pretty basic channels and spotty reception.
