Rosedale Inn
Ranked #9 of 17 Hotels in Pacific Grove
Reviewed June 8, 2013

Beautifully re-decorated rooms, Fresh and clean. Best possible location to be near the 17 Mile Drive with its convenient connection to Carmel and fun shopping. Quiet, charming, very good price for value given. First rate continental breakfast in a very pleasant breakfast room. A good seafood restaurant, open late, nearby. Do not miss taking the short walk through the neighboring conference grounds woods to the beach to watch the sun set over the Pacific, a not to be missed romantic moment. We got to watch a sunset, on the beach wedding. We did an eight day, six hotel, trip up and down the coast. The Rosedale Inn was the very best with the next best a very distant second. We would not hesitate to return to the Rosedale anytime we are in the area. We recommend it without qualification.

This is a very nice play to stay in a perfect location. The staff is very attentive and the rooms are nicely done. At full price it may not be the best value in PG but they run specials all the time so check their online webpage often. Snag a special and you will be very pleased. The difference between King Suite and Superior King Suite is supposedly the size of the kitchen area but to me the big difference is the location of the bedroom. In the regular suite the bedroom is in the front, overlooking the parking, in the superior it is in the back facing the yard. With that said, the entire property is very quiet and I had no problem with the noise (except for kids next door running from room to room which shook the building).

Room Tip: The difference between King Suite and Superior King Suite is supposedly the size of the kitchen area...

We were pleasantly surprised when we reached the Inn and saw our room. We had a lovely bathroom, big bed, and a cozy fireplace! The breakfast was more than we expected for a continental breakfast. The location was good too - easy to find and get to Cannery Row, US1, and other destinations. We would definitely stay here again and recommend them.

Room Tip: There are only a few rooms per building so we had no noise at all.

The room was very comfortable, quiet and well appointed. The staff was professional and helpful. The breakfast was great, with several healthy choices. The location is wonderful, being within walking distance of the beach. I am in the area seveal times a year, and this is where I always stay. I highly recommend it!

Room Tip: There are different types of rooms. Ask for the one which best suits your needs.

We have stayed at the Rosedale on many times over the past 10 years, most recently May 2013. We WILL stay there again in the future.

What we like:
The bath reno, the spacious rooms, the kitchenette, the location, and the friendly staff.

What was just OK:
The kitchen reno lacked functionality. It was missing above-counter shelves. It was not nice having to keep dishes, cutlery, etc., under the sink. The breakfast was also just OK.

What was horrible:
The carpet was DISGUSTING. We wouldn't walk on it without shoes on. Old, dirty, stained, worn away at edges. The sofa was REALLY DISGUSTING. I wouldn't sit on it, period. It was actually dark with an oily-like filth in most places (there were a few places on the sofa that didn't get much use, such as the back, and you could see a very stark contrast in color. )

WE will stay there again because of the GOOD things about it. However, we have friends who wanted a hotel recommendation in the area, and we did not recommend the Rosedale to them because of what they might think of US when they realized we were OK staying with such filthy-looking carpet and sofa! Hopefully the renos will include these items in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for room with the most renovations completed.

First the good: (5star stuff)
-Our room was clean and HUGE! We stayed in the two-room King suite right on the road at the entrance to the Inn. It was bigger than most apartments I'd lived in. It even had a little patio with chairs and a table. Small kitchenette stocked with dishes and glasses.
-The location is great, super close to the beach and all the sights that Pacific Grove/ Monterey/ Carmel have to offer.
-Very quiet, as it is in a residential area.

Next, the just okay: (2 or 3star stuff)

-Not a great value, but I booked it only a few days before our visit and there were only a few other places available. I believe we paid about $240. Seemed a bit high for the overall experience.
-Bed was ok, not great. Furnishings in our room seemed much more outdated than what they look like on the website. Our room also seemed really dark, unlike the very bright appearance the rooms have online.
-The breakfast buffet was nothing special- they have the same waffles every hotel has these days, assorted pastries, fruit, etc. We are late risers and always seem to get to the continental breakfast hour during the last half of the offering, and like other places, stuff was not restocked and replenished despite the fact there was still over an hour before it was supposed to end.
-The fireplace was a nice touch but did not put out any real heat whatsoever. There was a wall heater that thankfully worked very well.

Now, the bad; (1star stuff)
It was a good thing the wall heater worked because I was FREEZING due to the fact that there was no heat in the bathroom and there was cold air literally blowing into the bathroom from under and around the tub. Cold air like air conditioning on high. I have uploaded a picture- there was over 1/2 inch space all around where the new jetted tub did not meet the wall. A horrible renovation, and I can't believe they left it like that. The tile floor was frigid, taking a shower was not enjoyable at all because I never felt warm, and I never attempted taking a bath because we were told it would take 20-30 minutes to fill due to the low-pressure faucets mandated by the city. I am sure the water would not have stayed warm.

I would stay here again, but absolutely not in the same room unless they had addressed the bathtub issue.
