I had a difficult time rating this one. Stayed here in June with 3 other couples and I'll admit, it was a dream golf vacation for the guys so they could play Pebble Beach. In order to play Pebble, you HAVE to stay at one of the hotels, and this IS the cheapest hotel of the 3 resorts available. But at $700 a night for a garden-view (read: parking lot through the trees), I've honestly stayed at better resorts for less money. The buildings were somewhat run-down and old, the fitness center was tiny and the pool was fine but with no food/drink service. The room, while comfortable and cozy (especially with that lovely fireplace and huge soaking tub) did not "feel" like a $700 a night room, whatever that feels like. :)
Now, before I sound like a crabby lady, the positives. The service was amazing from start to finish. The staff (other than at the spa and restaurants) do not accept tips and yet go above and beyond. The shuttle to the 2 other facilities is free and runs continually. The fire pits at the back of the Inn have the most stunning views of the ocean and golf course and there was nothing better than snuggling up in the (provided) blankets at night, listening to the bagpiper as he made his rounds, and sipping our cocktails. There are 2 restaurants and 2 bars on site and more at the other properties so we did not get bored during our 3 nights. We girls enjoyed the lovely spa at Pebble one day and had a lovely time over there. And, as I've mentioned, the room comes with a great fireplace, lots of free snacks and lovely bath products. There is great in-room coffee and complimentary coffee in the lobby as well.
Overall it was a lovely stay and the service is what stands out the most for me. But again, I've honestly stayed at nicer facilities for less money. But, since you have to book tee times a year in advance, clearly it's popular and people are willing to spend the money. Pebble and Casa Palmero are even pricier, so if you are looking to do Pebble the cheapest way possible, this is your option.
