“Only 1 block to Asilomar State Beach...!!”
Reviewed September 29, 2013

We recently spent a couple of nights in Unit #101. This is possibly the nicest unit in the complex...along with #102 and may be #103.

It features a full kitchen, a table with a couple of chairs, a small "living area" with a small couch and a (fake) fireplace along with a separate bedroom with a king bed.

The room's best feature is a small patio area just outside the "living area" from where you actually have a glimpse of the ocean. We enjoyed the patio area sipping a glass of wine and watching the sunset. We believe that only #101 and #102 have this view so book early.

Otherwise it's location, location, location...!!! The Bide-A-Wee is only a block away from the Asilomar State Beach with it's million dollar vistas and many walking and running trails. And...not to forget, the wonderful, laid-back city of Pacific Grove.

The Continental Breakfast is nothing to write home about and the front office can be a little difficult to deal with,

All in all, it is the proximity to Asilomar State Beach that makes the Bide-A-Wee attractive to us.

Wonderful location, quiet , clean room, very friendly and obliging staff helped make our eight day stay in Pacific Grove a pleasant experience. The shoreline walks and bike rides are unforgettable. Pacific Grove is a gem!

Lovely and very clean little cottages, right across from the ocean. So quiet you can hear the ocean through your open windows. Pet Friendly! Nice grass area with tables in the shaded sun to let your four legged friends out for a stroll and fresh air. Will always come back.

We stayed 2 nights in a King cottage with our Dog. It was easygoing, clean and simple. If you are looking for a "swanky" highly decorated place with room service and a keurig coffee maker in your room, this might not be to your liking. However if you are ok with a quaint little place that is clean and a couple of block walk to the beach and close to Monterey, Carmel, 17 mile drive and restaurants, then this is a great affordable place to stay. They have continental breakfast with coffee, tea, bagels muffins, fruit etc, and a lot of outdoor grassy areas with picnic tables to sit. We have stayed at high end beach front hotels for double the money and would have no hesitation to go back to the Bide A Wee for a visit. Our room also had a decent sized microwave, stove,coffee maker , small refrigerator and a sink It was an enjoyable stay, I would recommend.

The setting was ideal, as was the location. The bed mattress was not the best, as we woke up each morning with a sore back. A continental breakfast...which we had to take back to our "cottage" on a tray...adequate...nothing to write home about. Very close to the beach, which is a plus. Very close to Carmel, if you wish to go visiting. There was one sink, where the fridge and microwave was, which we also had to use to brush our teeth, etc...not ideal. I think we got spoiled with the last place we stayed at, in Los Osos.

We stayed here 3 nights. Having studied the website carefully we were pleasantly surprised when the rooms were a little better than expected. They are really like large hotel rooms with a gas fireplace, good sized fridge and adequate microwave in addition to a flat screen tv. Yes this is more of a motel than a series of individual cottages but that is what we expected. Continental breakfast was available from the office area but you need to carry it back to your room as there is nowhere else to sit down to eat.
A 5 min walk gets you to asilomar beach. A 15-20 walk would get you to pacific grove restaurants. We drove to the Cannery Row area of Monterey to each each night. Carmel was just a 10 min drive and 17 mile drive closer still. We enjoyed our stay here & would have no issues with choosing this place again.

There are no "cottages" here - this is a strip motel of very poor quality with little to recommend it. we stayed in a 2-bedroom "cottage" which had a tiny table and 2 chairs and a loveseat for 2, utensils and plates for 2-- view of the parking lot and a fence, nothing to embellish and not very comfortable. The staff were unfriendly and unhelpful -- for example we were 5 minutes after the breakfast time and couldn't get a cup of coffee. We had planned to cook but the "kitchenette" is nothing at all - you could barley microwave food here. All this for the same price as other places with much more to offer nearby -- be cautious: this place is not as it is portrayed on the website!
