The office staff were kind, welcoming and knowledgeable. The place is outdated by the sea. The area is beautiful, but a bit run down. The room we were in had a musky mildew scent, but once the sliding glass door was open, the misty fresh air neutralized the odor. The beds were nothing spectacular nor the furniture, but the room...

I regularly kayak the Monterey/Carmel area, and usually stay in Pacific Grove. The Olympia Lodge is one of the better deals for the money. It's a little run down, but it's clean and comfortable and in a perfect location for easy access to many activities in the general area. I'd certainly stay there again at the Groupon rate.

None of the things that are supposed to slide did. Not the balcony door, not the screen door, but worst than all was the glass shower door. Glass to metal, my wife needed help to open and close it. By the look of the metal, its been this way for some time. The t.v. couldn't have been any larger than... More

This property is dated. However, it is clean. You are in walking distance of some very nice restaurants (about a mile ). Pacific grove golf course is close by. If you can get it for a good price it worth the stay for a day or two.

I think the best thing I can say about this place was that the rooms were clean. On the not no good side: we had an argument upon check in because the room type we had reserved and paid for was not available (so they said). They blamed the booking agency for incompetence. A pool was advertised, and we brought... More

The lodge is lovely, the rooms as cosy as they look in the pictures and the location is perfect for a visit to the Aquarium. We walked to very nice dining in the evening. Then our son left his toy pets behind and the catastrophe was a fact. A phonecall later the nicest staff in the world saved our vacation... More

I booked The Olympia Lodge for one night for myself and four teenagers. There was a Groupon offered that seemed like a really great deal. Before purchasing, I called the lodge to confirm they could accommodate 5 of us, and I was told they could provide a roll away. Upon booking, again, they confirmed they would provide a roll away....

The location is not great to go out and visit Monterey if you don't have a car. However, it is okay if you take the 17-mile drive in the morning. The room was big and clean with a balcony and we did a little apero on the balcony with the partial sunset. It was great (ask for 2 second floor!)... More

Lodge is clean, but our room was dark and the sliding door needed repair. Great location for walking to beach near Asilomar. Staff was helpful and friendly. Breakfast was bare bones, but got us started on our day.

Had such nice time in Pacific Grove over looked accommodation. Lamps didn't work we specifically asked for king size bed and we were given a room with 2 queen size beds. They refused to change rooms because the place was full. Thank goodness we purchased stay thru Groupon. I don't think we would stay here again. Weird doors all sliding... More
