This is a very quiet location near residential areas and the Asilomar Conference Grounds. The facility is less than new, but was very clean and functional. The bedding was comfortable and even with the patio door open (2nd floor), there was no issues with traffic or other noise. For some reason there was not a screen door on the patio, but we were lucky and never had a bug or mosquito issue.

Breakfast was okay, but nothing to brag about. The good: it had hot make-yourself-waffles. The bad: very little fruit and no bananas. It was convenient, quick, and a good way to start the day.

Finally, staff was friendly and helpful. No complaints there. I would stay there again or recommend it to others.

Room Tip: Our room was nice, but our friends had a full kitchen and a larger room for a few more dollars. It w...

There is no more beautiful place on earth than the Monterrey Peninsula and the drive down Hwy 1 to Big Sur. Most folks only know about Monterrey, and the world renowned aquarium. However, the adjacent town of Pacific Grove, an old Methodist summer camp in the 1800s, is full of old Victorian houses, many converted to B&Bs, a nice little natural history museum, and a spectacular path right along the shore that goes for miles. Bring your bike and bike the 17 Mile Drive to Carmel for free! Otherwise pay to see rich folks' homes and Pebble Beach, all worth the effort and even the money. Monarch butterflies overwinter in PG, but we've not seen them in their usual eucalyptus trees in the city park our last few visits. But keep at it....they're out there somewhere.

Room Tip: There are no elevators. Ask for a downstairs room if you have difficulty carrying your luggage up a...

If you enjoy walking on the beach and a little isolation this is a great spot. The hotel staff are very helpful. You are close to Monterey and Pacific Grove both places a great place to spend some time. Would definitely stay here again.
