Great hotel in Pacific Grove. Short drive to downtown , great walking trail at the ocean. Super friendly staff, clean room . We would defiantly not hesitate to return. Charming downtown area - hotel is right across from a lovely walking trail.

Room was neat & clean. Recently had a nice face lift so looks good. Could use a few more towels but otherwise no problems. On check in very helpful on recommending a place to eat and chowder was as good as advertised. Toast and coffee etc. provided for breakfast which is a nice touch.

This motel was very affordable and comfortable. The coffee pot was broken, but they replaced it immediately. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. We stayed 2 nights and will stay there again when we go to Pacific Grove. It was a little hard to find as it is nestled at the end of the road!

Within its "type"of lodging, Deer Haven is excellent! Like many Asilomar area lodgings, it looks and "feels" like an old-fashioned personal and friendly motel. Living in the Bay Area, we make numerous trips and have stayed at many Monterey-PG-Carmel area lodgings. Of the four we've used specifically in Pacific Grove, Deer Haven was thus far our favorite and is definitely... More

Deer Haven Inn is ideally located for exploring the Monterey Peninsula within easy reach of both Carmel and Monterey but in the quiet peaceful spot of Pacific Grove. The motel is comfortable and quiet, two queen beds in each unit and user friendly bathroom. Breakfast is provided but is minimalist. We took some of our supplies such as fruit and... More

We had a conference at Asilomar, but they don't allow pets and we had our little dog, so we stayed here at Deer Haven, right across the street from our conference.

We love this little motel in Pacific Grove; perfect location in between Carmel and Monterey. It's obviously an older motel with updated rooms, which were clean and comfortable. You can't beat the value for the area. It's walking distance to Asilomar and the beach. Very comfortable and we enjoyed having the fireplace for those overcast chilly evenings common for the...

We were very happy with our room and the office staff may be the friendliest we have encountered in many years. Deer Haven Inn is several older buildings, and while not luxurious in the "five-star", ultra-modern definition, it is comfortable, clean and quiet in a peaceful setting. The only minor drawbacks are the lack of soda vending machines (coastal weather... More
