This place stinks. Activities include guess that stain on the carpet, and furniture, Looking at the closed swimming pool, betting when the upstairs deck will collapse due to dry rot, sharing towels because only 2 towels are left for a family of four, guessing why there is no maid service, guessing why all the rooms in the upstairs of one...

This is an iconic little 'last of the little inns'! It is run family style, and is an older building, so a bit 'tired'..but it's well worth the price you pay. it's the least expensive lodging in Pacific Grove. It is a one minute walk to the dunes of Asilomar Beach.. you hear the waves crashing at night. The rooms...

I don't like to write negative reviews so I'm just going to give some constructive feedback. You have an awesome location with so many things that could make this place a real gem. Get the pool and sauna fixed, offer bikes again and take care of the back area that use to be available to guests but now looks like...

My parents took me here back in the 60's, so I decided to take my wife and go to the beach near by ans stay the night. What a mistake. We drove 2 hours and after not being able to find another room went to Santa Cruz for the night which wasn't much better, but at least we didn't catch...

The only good thing I can say about this place is the location. Walking distance to the beach and Asilomar Conf. Center. No one is even in the office until 4 pm. The guy that checked us in was dressed in a dirty/sweaty Seattle Seahawks T-shirt and never once looked me in the eye. He just sighed and tried to...

I checked into the Beachcomber Inn for "car week." The motel is very close to all events Pacific Grove and Pebble Beach. Asilomar State Beach is a few hundred yards down the road. Awesome! The room was very small and dated, but it served as a spot to get some rest. The staff was pleasant enough, the view from my...

we stayed here last season, and like most of the reviews, I tend to agree with them. The place is Average at best..and just about sufficient for a short stay. If you get a chance, look elsewhere. Good point -- close to beach!

We stayed here last year, which also happened to be a time when heat wave was wrecking havoc across CA region. Unfortunately, the stay here did not help much. The place was quite hot (some sort of temporary cooling arrangement would have helped). The rooms are quite basic, and in urgent need of overhauling. Service during our stay was also...

My husband and I booked #23 and stayed 4th of July weekend. First night there I seen 4 deer, only my 2nd time ever seeing deer, it was pretty awesome. Pros: Location- view of the ocean & just a short walk to the beach. The innkeeper was helpful/kind. Free parking. Everyone I met was kind. Shower's get hot water right...

Sorry to say, but this place is run down, and really needs uplifting. Stained carpets, etc. but if you are traveling, and just want to sleep over, this is comfortable, and a very good spot in regards to the ocean and a handy dinner place next door.
