We usually stay in Carmel but given that this last trip was last minute we were forced to venture out a bit. I was a little hesitant to book this place b/c of other reviews I read but I have to say we were pleasantly surprised. Great room, we were on the ground floor (with no one above us) and... More

Excellent place in a great location at a reasonable price. Clean, well managed, and hospitable. Pacific Grove is also a very nice town and its access to the 17-mile drive is convenient. Fireplaces in the rooms are cool.

We chose this motel based on Guest Ratings and cost and were not disappointed. The motel is located in a mostly residential neighborhood, a little removed from the usual hustle and bustle, but close enough to shopping and restaurants. The rooms are small, but comfortable. A gas log fireplace is a comfy touch. Bathrooms are large and well kept. The... More

The Deer Haven Inn is nestled into a quiet residential neighborhood located across from Asilomar. Property is an older "motel", but rooms appear to have been updated within the past few years and are nice. Not a four or five star property but competitively priced for the area. Attention to all the small details (small stains on sheet; bathroom grout... More

pros: nice staff, great spot near beach, quiet, lots of deer around at night. cool weather even in summer. cons: breakfast coffee is terrible, and i don't like the floors in the room-slippery. fireplace smells of gas when on, unfortunately. also the prices get way too high for this type of motel, in the summer.

This was the last night if our road trip round California, and a lovely, comfortable, value for money stay. The staff were very welcoming, and helpful having printed off details of the Car Event that was happening in Monterey. A stone's throw from 17 mile drive, a perfect position to make a base to visit Monterey and Carmel. Although it... More

Good sized rooms, comfortable beds, and great customer service. You will not find a better priced stay in the area.There is ample parking . I stayed on a ground level room, but honestly was not bothered by outside noise and people walking upstairs. I will stay again if I ever come back to the area.
