“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

Huge, clean, room with vaulted ceiling and fireplace just like photo on website. Now that's truth in advertising!. Staff was friendly, eager to please. We loved the Thai restaurant that was recommended. The Inn is located in a pleasant setting close to beach and aquarium. Only complaint was I could not get the poolside jacuzzi to work and at that time the desk person was attending to needs of another guest.. Overall, a great value and much nicer than the property where our friends stayed just down the street. I would definitely recommend Butterfly to others visiting the area.

Room Tip: I booked online and specified room with two beds. Later when I received email confirmation, I reque...

We stayed two nights 2 adults and a child. Room was larger than expected and clean. Everything seemed well taken care of on the grounds. Knowledgeable and helpful day time manager. HEATED pool and nice outdoors jacuzzi!. Breakfast was medium quality - lots of carbs, but the only fruit was bananas. It was enough to fill the stomach, but not that great. We will return happily.

I attended a conference in Monterey recently and stayed at the Butterfly Grove Inn. It was very clean, peaceful and just an all around good experience. I had an electrical switch issue in the bathroom one morning so I left housekeeping a note and when I return that evening the switch was replaced. I plan to return next year with my wife to Pacific Grove and we will stay at the Butterfly Grove Inn!

Freezing rooms; shower barely worked; terrible breakfast & horrible coffee. Not worth even half the money we paid. The only good thing was the raccoons robbing the trash can at night... That was cute.

How to spend few nights in the Monterey Peninsula without spending $500 per night or more. This hotel is the answer, the staff is very friendly, it is clean, the room we had was huge. The swimming pool is pleasant and the hot tub is working (don't laugh, it is an achievement!) On the downside, the water pressure in the shower is very low, yet good enough to take a shower. There is no air conditioning, but it was so cold we actually used the heater (a fireplace with a noisy blower). The breakfast is free, if you dont like carbs you are out of luck they only items proposed are: muffins, waffles, bread, english muffins, cereals, oatmeal, bananas, ... So, same thing anywhere else would not be great but provided the next step up is 3 times the price, we had a decent room and enjoyed our time very much.

This is our second time at this hotel. We really like it. The staff is very nice and incredibly hard working, the rooms are spacious and clean, some with little patios, TV has lots of channels -if that's what you're into. We've stayed at many hotels in this area before and for that price range, I would say its probably the best hotel here.
