“Quaint and Quiet”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014

I wanted a one night stay last minute at the coast. The big hotel experience wasn't calling me as usual so chose to not stay in Monterey. I am so incredibly happy to have chosen Butterfly Grove Inn. It may not be for everybody but if you are looking for quiet, serene, and peace...choose this beautiful property. If not...please look elsewhere and leave it to those of us who enjoy such gorgeous settings. It's a gem and I do hope it remains.

Staying alone, I felt safe and comfortable. A walk to anywhere - beach, golf, rocky coastline, cute shops and wonderful restaurants. Be forewarned that the property sits on Ridge Drive...as in on top of a hill off of Lighthouse so if walking uphill is an issue, then this may not be suitable.

I do know the property is in process of being updated and has new management which is wonderful. Having a mini-fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, hairdryer, and parking directly in front of door is ideal. Furnishings, carpet, paint needs to be attended to.

Dog-friendly and hoping to return in a few weeks with mine.

We were looking for a nice, quiet place to stay, and this place was perfect. Rooms are nice sized and very clean. The grounds are very pretty and serene. We especially enjoyed seeing deer ourside our door one evening. We appreciated being able to park right outside our room. The flat screen television and the gas fireplace in the room was a special treat. The breakfast was decent and the staff was very friendly and pleasant. The location is great as it's quiet and off the main street, but still very close to many attractions. We most definitely would like to return, and will encourage family and friends to visit as well.

The location was perfect, off the main road. Quiet, clean, spacious room. Staff was very friendly. We only stayed one night. We have family in Pacific Grove, but there isn't a lot of room at their home. So we are always looking for a nice place to stay for a weekend every couple of months.

It was exactly what we were looking for, an inexpensive stay and close drive to Monterey. Great parking right in front of your room. Light breakfast, but ample. My biggest complaint were the thin walls. We were told to quiet down, and were only talking at regular volume in our room.

I loved the location of this place and also the look and feel of it. Our room was spacious and comfortable, quiet and serene. The hot tub was very hot and relaxing. The pool was freezing so we could not swim. I like the fact it is right near the Butterfly Grove! The breakfast was decent. Wish they had some protein because I can't eat carbs! Great spot and super affordable!

Pacific Grove is so wonderful.

The location is perfect for a walk to the ocean then a quick drink at the local golf course before heading off to dinner at the myriad of places in Pacific Grove. The beds were comfy and loved the high wood plank ceilings. I would like to use the pool next time. Continental breakfast is standard faire with Costco muffins, cold cereal, and fruit. Price is right for what you get.
