The positives: clean, spacious, quiet, a 5-minute drive from a strip mall that has decent coffee (I'm not fond of the in-room swill). Jacuzzi tub is relaxing.
The less-positives: when you get a two-room suite, it's generally with the intention that one or more members of your party will sleep in the second room. The well-worn sofa bed with springs practically poking through was so uncomfortable that our child jumped ship and slept with us. Not that any of us had a good night's rest in our bed; I suspect the mattress was past its pull date.
If it's rainy during your visit and you decide to turn on the television, expect the reception to be dreadful as it's satellite rather than cable. A minor quibble.
Aforementioned jacuzzi bathtub is big enough for a family, but that may be a little awkward for your party. It took forever to fill and yes, we felt guilty about all that water. With all their signs about conserving H2O, you'd think they'd have downscaled the bathtub a little.
The free breakfast is standard fare, heavy on the bread group, We spent about a minute looking around -- the orange juice wasn't bad -- before heading to aforementioned strip mall area (bagel bakery, real coffee).
If the weather is cooperating, which it wasn't during our stay, you could hike the few miles into town. But this is not a place where you park your car and walk everywhere you need to go. For me, that's important. I also thought the price was a little high for the amenities, but after reading the reviews of neighboring properties, maybe that's what you pay in Pacific Grove to avoid dirt and vermin. Not awful, just nothing special.
