“Respite”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 8, 2014

I was traveling up the coast and found this charming little place as I drove around Pacific Grove for a place to rest for the night. The walk-in rate was very good. The bed was very comfortable. All was clean, pleasant, serviceable and filled with ocean breezes. Very restful! The staff were pleasant. All in all, a very pleasant and restful evening in a quiet neighborhood on a very big bed in a cozy little room. Just what the doctor ordered.

Room Tip: I wanted a room with a fireplace, but it was more than I wanted to spend for an overnight during a l...

Located at the North of Lighthouse avenue, close to the Point Pinos light station. Sea breeze inn is a drive inn with a collection of apartments (on both side of the road). There are single cottages, row houses and duplex houses. Some are newly renovated. We stayed in a recently new renovated one. We were very disappointed. Why?
1. The cottage was very dark. You needed light all day.
2. Cheap materials are used for the renovation. For example one of the drawers in de bathroom was hanging out of the cupboard.
3. There was only one wine glass, lids but no decent cooking pan/pots, one of the bed table lights did not work. Imagine, this was a brand new cottage....
4. There was only one comfortable chair in front of the fire (and when we moved the chair we found plenty of dust).
5. Internet is very unstable. Only now and then we had connection.
6. Our booking included continental breakfast. This consisted only of coffee/tea, cheap orange juice and muffins.
7. The pool area with a wire pool is ok but the chairs are broken and the covers full of spots.
8. We asked the reception staff to inform the manager that we were not satisfied. We never heard anything. When we again complained about the non functioning internet the reception staff told us that they could not do anything for us but that we always could look for another place to stay. So rude....

Exactly we would recommend people to stay in another place. There are plenty other accommodations on Lighthouse avenue or surrounding where we think you will find more quality, service and value for 220 dollar per night.

My room was comfortable, bed & bath remodeled so both were modern and new. Towels were older condition. No Hair Condtioner in bath. In-room refrigerator was noisy and disrupted my sleep. I turned it off when I went to bed at night. The room (406) needs black out curtains. Bright street light out back and light outside front door.

Area is very quiet, minimum traffic which is positive. Close to some good eating places (passion fish, tastes) and to Pacific Grove coastline. Value for price on weekends not good enough ($172 per night) to make me return.

Ignore room service rating..my mistake with rating. No room service available.

Room Tip: Depends on your neighbor, walls can be thin

Very cute place. Short walk to the beach. We had a few problems with our room but the management took care of them very quickly and knocked some money off our bill for the inconvenience. We had a one bedroom cottage with 2 queen beds and kitchen. 4 adult women shared the cottage. The living room only seats 3 so we used a beach chair. No dining area. Very basic kitchen items but suited our needs.

I enjoyed the little bungalow style rooms. Very peaceful and relaxing. Nice little mom and pop shops and restaurants near by. Wish they had conditioner for the bathrooms and wish the pool was heated. Otherwise it is a wonderful place to stay.

We stayed in a comfortable room that was recently remodeled. This older hotel is very well maintained and rooms are upgraded with designer's touch. Well behaved dog or cat is welcomed. Continental breakfast is served, but plenty of restaurants in Pacific Grove to choose from for a hot breakfast of latte. Some restaurants offer discounts to hotel guests, ask for a list. We brought our bicycles and the location was excellent for exploring the 17 mile drive and the bike paths of Pacific Grove, Monterey, and surrounding areas.

Room Tip: If you want a quiet room, consider one of their cottages. Swimming pool was not heated and hot tub...

Motel type accommodation 10 minutes walk from centre of Pacific Grove and 5 minutes walk from beach. Low key continental breakfast included in price (coffee, orange juice, porridge oats & muffins) for pick up and taking back to room. Outdoor pool excellent in warm weather - we had 70 degrees plus in late April. Comfortable lodgings in the beautiful Monterey Peninsula...

Room Tip: Rooms both sides of road - we stayed in king-bed room with patio next door to the pool - excellent
