I was attending a conference at Asilomar, but needed a bigger room for my accompanying family. Turns out I made a good choice. Stayed in one of their 2-bedroom, 1-bath suites that was a bit tight but worked and was well appointed. Hotel consists of multiple 2- and 3-story buildings without elevators. Parking provided in outdoor lot and underunit garages.... More

Only stayed here when all the hotels we had chosen in Monterey were booked, but very pleased we did. This is a unique hotel obviously converted from a townhouse complex. We had a top unit with a huge bedroom, separate space for ironing, kitchen etc plus vaulted ceilings and an enormous shower with a window. We also had a balcony,... More

This is definitely a different kind of Best Western that offers an experience closer to a condo. There are garages and our unit had a kitchen, dining room, family room, bathroom, bedroom and balcony. Yet unlike a condo you get maid service each day. And free breakfast was so convenient. Not a lot of room to sit and eat there... More

Clean and quite comfortable,In a very quiet residential area close to 17 mile drive, Looks more like an apartment complex with some rooms having carports. Would consider this property again. No pool though.

Best hotel to stay. Had everything you would expect of a hotel. Great breakfast, comfy beds, clean and nice bathrooms and enough toileteries/towels. Will stay again. It is a townhouse kind of setup in residential neighbourhood but peaceful and convenient to beaches and monterey. Glad did the right choice.

I think Pacific Grove is the best place to stay on the Monterey Peninsula. Much quieter than Monterey itself. The gate for the 17 Mile Drive is very close to this hotel and you can walk to the Asilomar beach (and check out the conf center, designed by Julia Morgan who also did Hearst's Castle). We had room 101 which... More

From arrival and check in to checking out we couldn't fault this hotel. Although in Pacific Grove, it is only a few minutes drive to the Monterey Aquarium and Fishermans Wharf. Located in a quiet residential area, GPS is useful, the hotel is made up of blocks of 6ish rooms. The rooms are large clean and have most of what... More

Very neat, clean, affordable place to stay in a good location for enjoying Monterey. Semi-detached cottages with rooms on two stories - a throwback to an earlier time of unique local hotels/motels. Even though pretty full, no noise or disturbances. A few blocks to ocean scenery. Management extremely accommodating.
