Upon first entering our room, it smelled like bleach, so...clean I guess you would say. However, later I noticed little things like The shower head had mineral deposits that had a dark dirty color. There were also a bunch of dead ants on the tile at the back of the bathtub, stains on the bed linens and the duvet cover had what looked like makeup that had rubbed off on it. When we asked for the room to be cleaned for our second night, we not only noticed those items above, but that there was still foil in the floor where we accidentally left it from a wine bottle we opened, the beds were just made, but sheets not changed. We also didn't get any towels replaced. When I called for more towels, a few minutes later someone just opened the door, saw me laying on the bed, said oh, then semi closed the door and knocked! The walls are fairly thin as well. The positives, which would not bring us back to this particular motel are that the view is beautiful. Pacific Grove is lovely. Deer are everywhere and one early evening, we looked out the window to see about 15 deer playing on the lawn in front of our window. The motel is also connected to the Monarch Butterfly Grove and you can just stroll right through it and out into a lovely neighborhood, which we did. They are pet friendly and it was nice to be able to take our small dog with us. The continental breakfast is nothing to rave about; it's the usual fare. The wifi is free and they do have cable. It is also close to downtown.

Shelngav: Thanks for leaving us a review. It makes me happy to hear that you enjoyed staying in our pet-friendly hotel’s beautiful guest room with an awesome view. We are so lucky to have a property in the heart of Pacific Grove, right next to the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary. However, I am sorry that we didn’t meet all of your expectations. I apologize for any miscommunication, or mishap during your time with us. I am disappointed to know that your stay with us was not up to par. Our hotel takes great pride in providing the best customer service in Pacific Grove thus I am shocked to hear of your experience. Our rooms are cleaned daily so I am not sure why you may face any cleanliness issues as they are checked each day after the cleaning. We actually get fresh linen delivered from an outside company to our hotel so the discoloration you saw was post-wash. Although the linen is clean, the makeup discolored the threads and it did not come back to the true color through the linen company’s wash cycle. We will make sure we re-train our housekeeping staff to reject any clean yet discolored sheets and inform our linen service company. I will double-check with our housekeeping staff to make sure that our cleanliness standards are always being met. Rest assured, our guest rooms are cleaned and sanitized by our hard-working housekeeping staff prior to each guest checking-in. If you decide to book with us in the future, remember to book directly at ButterflyGroveInn.com where you will find the lowest rates anywhere online. See you soon! Thank you for staying at Butterfly Grove Inn, Best Regards, BGI Management, Butterfly Grove Inn

This is a very nice place to stay, next door to the monarch butterfly grove away from downtown. Very comfortable room, vaulted ceilings with a fireplace. Parking in front of the room makes it convenient, although a bit tight at times. Breakfast is basin, no frills, but fine. Is an older property but is well maintained with a lot of charm. Well located for driving around the area, close to downtown for walking trips and dining. Enjoy!

In December, we booked the "Deluxe Family King and Queen" two-bedroom suite for two nights. Cost=$125 per night! This was on a weekend, when many places raise their rates. With parking and basic breakfast included, and two separate bedrooms, this is a great deal, maybe the best on the entire Monterey Peninsula, even among the reasonably priced lodgings in Pacific Grove. The large property is surrounded by trees, many covered with hanging moss, and just a few steps from the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary entrance. The hotel's grounds were spotless, with picnic tables and benches available. Deer come to the edge of the property. There's a wooded area right behind the inn, which the deer seem to love! The suites are on both levels of the two-story original house. Note that there is no elevator in that building. Our suite was on the second floor. First impression of the building's interior staircase was of how soiled the hall carpet is, so we were pleasantly surprised that the suite was cleaner! Please see this review's photos to get a sense of the light, forest-likefeel of this room. It's cozy and airy with pretty, old fashioned curtains. Each bedroom has a large screen TV with Satellite TV stations There's a closet only in the larger king-bed bedroom, but there is plenty of drawer storage in both roosms. There's a table large enough for three of us to have meals The fireplace in the room is for show only -- non functional. I knew this prior to check-in so was not disappointed. (Many of the motel rooms do have working gas fireplace.)There's also a microwave, refrigerator (small, but larger than many I've seen in hotel rooms) and a tea/coffee maker. We did not use this as, during office hours, there's coffee, hot water for tea and cocoa, and even honey, in the office/lobby/dining area. Bathroom water takes a couple minutes to warm up, but then it is hot. The shower faucet was low, but the pressure was fine. There are the usual hotel sample sized bottles of lotion and shampoo (no conditioner). The beds and linens were very comfortable, and the property is so quiet, you sleep like baby. There are sufficient electrical outlets, good lighting, and good wifi. The included breakfast is served at decent hours (for late sleepers!) of 8-10 a.m. It is not elaborate but is adequate, with the fresh-made waffle machine, good brewed coffee, pastries including Costco type muffins cut in half, and fresh fruit (bananas and apples where we were there). Trays are provided, so I was able to carry morning food and drinks back to the room for the family. The two front desk staff people we met were pleasant, and a woman I'd phoned (but didnt meet) was great about describing different room options. Sid ,the manager, was on duty, helpfu and concerned with the few negatives I described. Improveable areas: the suite's central heat is blown in via ceiling vents. The first night was ok, but the second, one room had no heat. We tried adjusting the vents, to no avail. There was no extra blanket provided in the closet. When the heat blows down from the ceiling, lint also blows out of the vents. Some paint touch-ups are needed. Housekeeping in the bathroom was average, with few telltale hairs on the floor when we first arrived. Despite these few issues, Butterfly Gove inn is delightful, lovely and unique, and such an incrediby good deal, we would stay again! Next time we'll try one of the motel rooms with their cathedral clings and working fireplaces. There's even a room (along the row where the office is, at the far end) with its own little deck looking at the trees. If you like genuine (not marketed as "boutique") old-style charm in a beautiful setting at a great price, you won't go wrong here!!
