Me and my family stay here once a year, around February. This is the perfect location for a family trip, if your expecting the Ritz try again, however walking 5 min to the beach and 5 min drive to cannery row is unbeatable. this is a pet friendly hotel so if your allergic or don't like dogs don't stay here, but we have four dogs and we didn't mind. the staff was very helpful thank you Jason in Reservations. the room is a nice Double Double and they have an ok breakfast included with your rate. we had such a blast out in Monterey.

Every spring, our group of friends holds a long-weekend reunion somewhere between LA and SF. After much searching for a location that would accommodate our large group (20 adults and 4 young children), I am so happy that we found the Lighthouse Lodge and Cottages. We rented the Cottage residence and 8 cottages (which are more like condos.) Everyone was so pleased with the location and the service. Having hot breakfast included meant that everyone could wake up on their own schedule. The Cottage Residence was the perfect place for group dinners, marathon board games, and talking late into the night without waking the little ones. The location was perfect: just a block from the beach, walking distance to the butterfly sanctuary, and a 10 minute drive to the Monterey Aquarium and Cannery Row. The staff at the Lighthouse was helpful in coordinating our group and even measured the distance between the Residence and the nearest cottages to ensure that baby monitors would work. Thanks to the Lighthouse Lodge and Cottages, our annual reunion was a huge success and we hope to be back again in the future.

Room Tip: Ask for a map of the cottage property to better choose your room.

We have been coming to Lighthouse Lodge for several years because we can take the dog with us. Since he is part of our family, it means so much. Our grandchildren have many happy memories of this beautiful area, also. We had not been for two years and now there are new owners. They have taken away the evening barbecue dinner. The breakfast is the same with eggs and hashbrowns and oatmeal and toast. You pretty well have to clean off your table but it's no big deal. We were happy to see the new tables and chairs this time. (Although The flat screenTV was taken out) The last time we were there they did not enough chairs and they were falling apart. The coffee is not great but adequate. The coffee in the lobby is only limited to when there is kitchen staff there & not before 7am.It would be nice if the front desk people were in charge of doing it so it's there all the time. The staff are plenty nice & kindly gave us our cemetery view request. We like the double double because the sliding glass goes right out to the ground floor for the dog to go to the bathroom. We love the new poop bag dispensers and waste containers out in the back where the dogs enjoy some grassy area.
My granddaughter wanted me to include how comfortable the beds were. She has back pain and it meant so much. The dog rooms are not luxury but clean and adequate. Our needs are met there. Yes we would return.

Extremely helpful and nice personnel — especially after a long a hard trip with pacific Hwy 1. Take a room with a fireplace, it is very sweet. Decent breakfast, free parking, nice walk around the pacific grove.

Given the location, I expected better. The decor was passable but basic things, like the heater and tub, really suck. The thermostat is useless. You either have to have it on or off because even when it's set to a low temperature, you'll roast. The tub allows for about 6" of water for a bath. Wifi and phone reception are horrible unless you go outside. For the price, I'll look elsewhere for next visit.

We spent just one night here, but would have loved to stay longer!The room was large, clean and comfortable with all the services you would expect. Good location, private parking, Spa, swimming pool and breakfast. We definitely would recommend it!

The room was pleasant with a view of the graveyard. That was fine. Private and quiet. The room was large, had a microwave and mini frig. But the carpet was gross. It needs replacing. The person checking us in gave us a paper with our room number and on it was marked the room by the pool for the breakfast. Wrong. The breakfast was across the street at their cottages. Why did the reception give out wrong info? Lazy? Did not want to update the info? She even highlighted that the breakfast was at the pool room. This is the second time we stayed. I was happy the first time because we stayed at the cottages. I will try once more when we go the area to see if they pay attention to the reviews and improve. Great location.

Room Tip: Good location
