We spent quite an enjoyable three days at BW Inn & Suites Pacific Grove in July 2016, The premises took some finding as it is literally surrounded by neat residential properties in woodlands. It is a good base to visit this lovely region, being very close to the famed 17 Mile Coastal Drive. The premises is rather an untypical BW... More

We were a group of ten, so we had a total of five rooms. Best Western is usually a safe choice, with clean rooms and a nice breakfast. These rooms were exceptional. Each was comparable to a small condo. It had a large sleeping area with a fireplace. The living area was small but sufficient. It was the kitchen that... More

I stayed at BW Inn & Suites Pacific Grove for one night in July as part of a road trip down the west coast. I arrived about 20:30, parked up and went in to the check in desk. I walked upto the counter (quite loudly) and stood there waiting to be checked in. The lady behind the counter was, what... More

This hotel had a king suite that fit our family of 5 perfectly with one child in a sleeping bag. Full kitchen and nice deck made eating at the hotel easy. Quick walk down to Asilomar beach made this hotel a great location for getting away from it all and just having a relaxing few nights away.

The hotel is in a quiet neighborhood, yet only a street away from the entrance of 17 Mile Drive-Pacific Grove Gate, beach and Pacific Grove main streets. We had a 2 bedroom suite which was greatly appreciated by the kids and my husband. The facility was very well maintained. Everything was cleaned and well stocked. The continental breakfast included good... More

This is a converted condo complex located off the main thoroughfaire It is well maintained on the outside with a nice in room arrangement. Management appears to be taking its job seriously as the outside is very quaint. Feels more like home than in a hotel off of a highway.

We booked a king bedroom suite with fireplace and kitchen and 2 back decks which were above ground. It was very clean and spacious and we loved it. It is also reasonably priced for the area. We went by several hours early and were able to check in at that time. The staff was pleasant and accommodating. The Inn is... More

This is an average run of the mill hotel, 3 star, neither good nor bad. The location near the beach is handy,wifi is easy and the mattress was comfortable, easy close parking and a quiet environment but the rooms are dated and some maintenance is needed.
