A very comfortable and clean room in a peaceful location, which was just what we wanted. I enjoyed the breakfast too - a limited selection (donuts, yoghurts, apples & oranges) but it was lovely to eat out in the open sitting around the outdoor fireplace. We stayed here to visit the Monterey Bay Aquarium and booked through the very friendly... More

Good price, nice quite location, very friendly staff! The location is just 1 block from the ocean in a nice neighborhood that is great for walks or a bike ride. Excellent dining in the area and a short drive to the Aquarium.

Really enjoyed our stay, it was fairly quiet, not sure if anyone was in the room next door. However, it has a great neighborhood location and a quick walk to the ocean where it is lovely and scenic. Sat out front at the fire pit and enjoyed some wine. I accidentally left my hair dryer behind and they were very... More

Of the various inns that I have visited in Pacific Grove, this is my favorite so far. It appears to have been recent,y remodeled inside and out. The furnishings and fittings are modern and nice quality. The room included a wall mounted flat screen tv above a gas fireplace. The furnishings are a bit sparse...just a small table and 2... More

We loved this little hotel, the staff was friendly & accommodating. Grounds were well manicured. Enjoyed sitting by the fire both in the morning & evening. Rooms were very clean & cute. We felt very secure there. Oh the morning breakfast was very good as well.

Great location and value for the Monterey area. You can easily walk to the shore (couple of blocks), lighthouse, Asilomar conference area, etc. Quiet location with decent (though tight) off street parking. Very limited morning breakfast, but not an issue since there are many excellent choices in nearby Pacific Grove. Only issue for some may be cell phone reception (particularly... More

Beautiful location and close to beach. Staff very nice. Beds uncomfortable, noise from neighbors, walls were very thin. Breakfast bar sub par. Would have been acceptable in the 120-140/nt range. Lovely surroundings, friendly staff. Hope owner bumps it up, place could be really great.
