This is my fourth stay there as, after my first visit, I have brought many friends and family to this very convenient location on the Monterey Pennisula. Everyone has loved it for the atmosphere, rooms and the great locations. This time my friend and I brought our large dogs! It is great to travel with the dogs and Andril was very accommodating! We had a great time on the beaches nearby and in Carmel.

Room Tip: There is such a large variety of accommodations here that you can pick what you want according to yo...

After spending a few days driving up the coast, we were looking forward to our 4-night stay at Andril, where'd finally be able to settle in and unwind. This place did not disappoint! Booking accommodations for a family of 5 (pre-teen & teenagers) can be very pricey, but Andril provided a fantastic value AND great space, plus a fantastic base location close to Monterey and Carmel. Everyone especially appreciated having a living room and kitchen where we could all just hang out. The owners have lovingly updated the cottages with modern amentities, while preserving the cool retro-feel of the property, complete with neon sign. The gardens are also beautiful, and I enjoyed watching a pair of hummingbirds dive in and out of the fountain in the back. If we are in the area again, we will absolutely stay here. Pacific Grove has become my favorite CA town -- what a fantastic spot. I only wish there was some way to rent bikes through Andril (e.g., partnership with local bike rental shop) or to have gotten information on where to rent in Pacific Grove vs. Monterey. Special thanks to the generations of family members who have made Andril so special through the years!

Room Tip: Even though a smaller cottage probably could have accommodated our family, I'm very glad I chang...

Andril's is a long-standing favorite in the Monterey Area, located across Asilomar Blvd from the Asilomar State Conference Center and just a block away from the Fishwife restaurant. It is a classic motor court featuring detached cottages of various sizes featuring fireplaces. The grounds and the cottages are well-maintained and pristine. There is outside seating and a quality ping-pong table. It's a great place for families, couples, or singles. We have stayed there a number of times over the past two decades or so. Easy walk to Asilomar beach, too.

We booked this last minute and expected an average stay but it exceeded our expectations. Our cabin was very clean and cozy, front desk was friendly, and there were lots of cool stuff around to enjoy. We are planning to go back.

We have been staying at Andril since our girls were little; it was our favorite family place. We just recently stayed in unit #20--now it's just the two of us. We love the big sunny patio.

We love to walk along the ocean, and this is the perfect place if you love the walk. We walked to Point Joe and enjoyed watching the crashing waves. One day we walked to Monterey Bay Aquarium and had a wonderful view of the seals and their pups along the way.

The only problem we have found is the more people we tell, the more times we hear, "There is no vacancy!"

Room Tip: We prefer the rooms that have recliners!

We have told so many people with dogs how much we love Andril's that I am surprised we can still get a reservation! We always get a cottage with a fenced patio. In the morning we let the housekeeping staff know we will be going to the beach with the dogs and ask that our room be made up while gone. They always happily comply. We then have very tired dogs who we can leave crated in the room while we shop or have a meal out. We also love sitting on our patio enjoying a glass of wine and grilling a meal while the dogs sniff around or sunbathe. Rooms we have rented all have full kitchens, wood burning fireplaces and jetted bathtubs. There is a small pet charge but very reasonable compared to other places we have stayed.

The Andril's is always virtually prefect. Most rooms are individual cottages with fireplaces ( they supply the wood daily) and real kitchens. Most rooms have private little barbecues. These are real cottages with real cottage feeling. The staff is always kind and helpful. They provide...free...snacks and a wide variety of blu-rays. Don't be surprised to see dear wandering the area. And you can walk to the ocean.
We come here often, and we'll keep coming here. It is just so relaxing and comfortable.
