Bide-A-Wee-Inn & Cottages
Reviewed July 7, 2012

We stayed here based on a recommendation from friends. We were a little hesitant because it is a pet-friendly place and we didn't want the noise or smells of animals. Fortunately, there were neither. We had a very pleasant time.

We stayed in room 103, which is a king bed, kitchen, fireplace, very slight ocean view, but no patio. Rooms 101 and 102 have the same amenities but also enjoy a patio. We liked room 103 because you only share a very small portion of the kitchen wall with room 102. There is no adjoining room on the other side so there is less chances of hearing neighbors.

We walked the property to see what the other buildings look like. It appears rooms 104, 105, 106, and 107 are all together with 104 and 107 being end units.

Room 109 is an upstairs unit. Apparently it is above a storage shed or maintenance building. We spoke to someone who stayed there and they said if you are gone during the day you don't ever hear the staff below you and it is a very nice secluded room.

Rooms 110 to 117 are together. Rooms 118 to 120 are together. It seems 120 would be a little noisy being next to the road.

Rooms 121 and 122 are above the lobby. We didn't speak to anyone staying there but it seems like they would be noisier than the others because the door to the lobby is constantly opening and closing all morning for the continental breakfast.

Speaking of the continental breakfast, we liked it. We read some reviews that put the breakfast down as a negative, but it is exactly what is advertised: bagels, packaged danishes, muffins, some fruit, and coffee.

Here are just a few more notes: the staff was very nice and helpful, be careful of the fireplace because the face of it gets very hot and children can easily be hurt, no rooms truly have an ocean view (more of a sliver of ocean view), there were deer grazing on the grounds each morning, Pacific Grove is a much quieter stay than Monterey and only ten minutes away from the aquarium.

Hope that helps!

We just stayed at this facility over 5/30 - 6/1/12 and had a wonderful experience. The Front Desk Clerks were extremely attentive and answered all of our questions readily. We had a duplex cottage that was clean, all appliances were in good working condition (including the fireplace), and the beds were really comfortable. Parking was outside of the cabin and it was nice, quiet and had a lovely setting...all green and by the ocean, Short drive to shopping and restaurants.

We stayed here for one night and absolutely loved it. We wish we could have stayed a couple more days but we had other places to visit. Our room was #109, a standard queen room, and it was so lovely. It was in a stand alone building on the upper level. The room was spacious and very clean. The free breakfast was plentiful with bagels, muffins, danish, fruit, coffee, juice. The grounds are beautifully landscaped with benches, tables and chairs here and there for relaxing. We ate our breakfast on the patio in the rear of our room. So tranquil! The ocean is a 5 minute walk from here and the 17-mile drive is very close by. We will be staying here again the next time we visit California.

This is a great, small hotel to stop at if in Monterey. 3 days after I checked out, I relaized I had left a luxury wallet in the closet. They recovered it, and went step by step of going through the difficult process of having it sent to me outside the country. I was really impressed with their understanding and attention to detail, felt like 5 star service, they really went above and beyond.

We go to Pacific Grove every couple of years and this year we decided to try a different hotel.
We found Bide-A-Wee Inn and we will now be staying there. We checked into a 2 bedroom suite with living room and kitchenette. Great location and a wonderful staff that was very helpful. We were only going to stay 2 nights but stayed a third. We enjoyed our cottage #111 and #121 we stayed at the last night. We could hear the ocean from our room and walked to the ocean every morning after we had a free breakfast of bagels, muffins, juice, fruit and coffee. Great vacation. Actually our two teens said it was the best ever and they loved our rooms.

Room Tip: suites are great and a good value.

We spend a lot of time in Pacific Grove but had never stayed at the Bide-A-Wee. The inn is so charming from the street. We stayed at the Bide-A-Wee for the last two nights. The room (118) was on the smaller side, however, you don't go to P.G. to stay in the room! You can hear the ocean from across the street. The room was well appointed with a fridge, microwave and plenty of heat on a cold day. It was very well maintained and absolutely spotless. There are chairs and tables on the grounds for a picnic or just to enjoy the lovely sights and sounds. The staff was so nice and we were very comfortable. I highly recommended the Bide-A-Wee.

Room Tip: Be sure to ask for what you need (fireplace, ground floor room, etc.) as not all rooms are appointed...
