I love staying at Howard Johnson in Pacific Grove. We stay in the King room suit and It has a full kitchen a comfy sitting area and a nice large King bedroom! It's always clean and very comfortable. We love to get up in the morning and walk through Asilomar Conference Center to the beautiful boardwalk on Asilomar State beach. There are miles of walking paths along the ocean and the views are amazing! Howard Johnson's is where we like to stay when we are at our favorite beach!

Room Tip: The king suite is really great and the beds are really comfortable. We also like to stay in the que...

We stayed in one of the suites in January. It's difficult to find but located in a quiet residential area, with lots of trees and very close to 17 mile drive, the coast and Monterey itself. The suite was well-equipped with everything we might need including a kitchen. The bed was very large and comfortable. Breakfast was included and was self-service in a dedicated communal breakfast room. The price was very reasonable. The only drawback was that wifi internet access was not working while we were there. Overall though, good value.

First when we walked into the building our room was in, all we could smell was a musty moldy smell. Then we got into our room and it was extremely smaller than pictured and it was also moldy smelling.

Nice, quiet get-away from everything. I love the sound of no noise, birds singing. Just a quick walk across the street and you are on the beach. At night it is dark, but the sound of the ocean can take you away.

Room Tip: Sorry my secret!!!!!
