We enjoyed our stay and did not have any problems checking. Matter of a fact they were friendly, courteous and let us check in before 4 pm. We stayed for five days and enjoyed "Monterey Car Week as well as the resort. We had a fire place which worked. The room was nice and clean. Also the complementary breakfast was... More

First of all, upon check in, the room the room was filthy. Hair all in the sinks, on the linen and the tables. There was no staff to rectify the situation, the gentleman working the front desk was alone on the property. Also the day we tried to check in, we where told that check in was at 4:00 pm;... More

STAY AWAY!!! This place should be called "Last Resort", based on the utter lack of any semblance of typical hospitality and courtesy. We go to Pacific Grove often and have stayed here a few times in the past when our favorite motels were not available. Last time we were less than impressed with the shabby rooms, sparse breakfast in a... More

Well, all other reviews of this property are correct, very nice outside but very dated, lack of repair, drama and confusion at check in with us and others who followed. We stayed two nights, room was nice and large and clean, with fireplace. First morning we put out the please clean room sign before 9 am, returned at 1- room... More

I do not typically write reviews but want to warn people about staying here. The reception desk was very interesting, but they try their best and are nice. She sounds extremely condescending but I actually think she genuinely is trying. The hotel is extremely dirty. Rooms have dirty towels with brown stains, ripped curtains with strange stains on them (blood... More

Clean but bare minimum. Pigeons outside of our window making noise all night long. Interior halls and you could hear everything. Breakfast WAS definitely continental. Breakfast room could only accommodate two families at one time. Adequate lodging but less than we wanted.

This former St. Regis is a great property--much improved actually with the updating of the pool and cabanas and main lobby--but with service issues galore. Scheduling is really an issue. We attempted to cancel a spa appointment several times...and still received a panicked call asking where we were for it. And we tried to book a cabana several times, and... More

Comfortable, clean rooms. The service was pleasant. Only a short distance to the beach and shopping. Pool area was nice. Breakfast was in a hotel room transformed that was kind of weird but at least it was breakfast. Beautiful sunset by the ocean near golf course.

Booked this hotel after reading glowing reviews. Staff was friendly. But decor, carpet and even door handle to room itself (hold at an angle before using card key) needed an upgrade. Room was clean and tidy. Brightest lighting was dim- caused difficulty in reading and watching TV. Free breakfast was mainly plain bagels and toast along with mini hostess donuts,... More
