Pleasant overnight in Pacific Grove. Decided to stay at last minute, the rate was great and the room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was standard Choice Hotels selection and all was plentiful and fresh. This was a great budget motel which allowed us to splurge on dinner at Fishwife. It is located very close to allow a walk to the... More

We decided to stay here 1 night while in Pacific grove on our drive down the Pacific Coast Highway. Let's be clear, this is a nice motel. It is close to town and you are very close to seaside attractions and restaurants. If you think of this hotel as only a place to rest for the night, then I would... More

We stayed here for 1 night on our way back to Los Angeles. For this it was totally ok. Close to restaurants the Lovers point and the light house. Breakfast is very typical american nothing fancy. Room and bathroom was clean and they had all the amenities you need.

After reading several not so stellar reviews I checked this place out before booking. Mgr was very nice and let me see a couple of rooms to give me my choice. I decided on a room up top and in the right hand corner. No one was next to me on one side since it was a supply room and... More

This motel is in a good location, being just a couple miles from the aquarium, the main reason for our visit to Monterey. The woman helping us at the front desk was friendly and efficient. It's easy to tell that this is an older motel that has been updated; fresh paint, a little wallpaper trim, newer bathroom countertop and fixtures,... More

Nice place, price was great ($73 before taxes). Nothing extravagant but bedding seemed new-ish and good quality sheets. Pillows were soft, albeit small, but that's just how I like them. They had 2 extra pillows and a blanket in the closet so you don't have to ask for them. Suited me well as I despise those hard "two story" foam... More

The people that gave this place terrible reviews were probably born with a silver spoon in their mouth. During a very busy time period, I found this place the cheapest, so I didn't expect a lot, but I was pleasantly surprised especially after some of the bad reviews.

I booked 2 nights at this hotel. At 3 am I woke up to feed my baby and saw 3 bugs crawling across the pillow and sheets. I killed the bugs and saved one in a napkin to show hotel staff. The staff has been evasive and dishonest and has refused to issue a refund even though I did not... More

We have responded to the review of bed bugs for the fraud review. We didn't hear back from you. We have also asked to verify that the hotel can provide the pest inspection bill and the same day photography after the guest check out. More

Stayed 3 nights and it was really bad. Checked in Wednesday, 11/11 and clerk was totally rude. Walls are like paper and you can hear people throughout the entire complex. This is a "sleep and leave" motel (not a hotel) because you wouldn't want to spend one extra second here if you don't have to. Clarion must really need franchise... More
