Okay for a nights stay. We had a good sleep here. Beds are good. Pillows a little hard but okay. Great big rooms with balconies. It’s nice and quiet at night. The only thing you here is a woodpecker in the morning. Beautiful surroundings.
Breakfast is okay but not a breakfast you will remember.
All in all we can recommend.

Stayed in the kitchen suite, room 101, for 3 nights. These are obviously former condos (I'm guessing 1970s-80s era) that have been broken up into hotel rooms, so you can hear noise from the rooms above.

Great location; nice short walk through Asilomar to the beach. Comfortable king bed. Gas flame fireplace is a cozy touch. Robust heating. Big sliding doors to the deck (which we didn't use because it was too cold/shady) under oak trees. Average bathroom.

The kitchen itself is a good size with many empty cabinets. This is among the most poorly equipped of rental/hotel kitchens I have encountered: besides tableware, there is only a set of totally trashed nonstick cookware, a cutting board, & some cooking spoons. No kitchen knives whatsoever, no mixing/prep bowls, no spatula, no dishrack. We asked for a salad bowl & knife & were given a cheap serrated fruit knife. Basically do not expect to do any actual cooking in this kitchen. It works fine for microwaving takeout food. They do provide dish soap & sponges.

Despite my complaints about the kitchen I would come back here due to the excellent location. Since I drive to get here it's not hard to bring some kitchen equipment with me.

I liked their covid protocols: masks required, Plexiglas partition at the front desk, windows & doors open to air out the room when we arrived.

The property has a strange layout for a motel. Several buildings seem to contain one room each at three levels; at least ours did. Nice for privacy as no one walks past your windows. But it just seems odd and must be a nightmare for the housekeeping staff.

Given that this trip occurred during Covid times, it's hard to criticize things like housekeeping and breakfast offerings. The motel resides nicely in a neighborhood, so little traffic will bother you.

Our room had a heater preprogrammed to blast Sahara Desert winds. We awoke as if we had taken our vacation in Death Valley in July. I learned to coexist by setting the temperature to hold at a comfortable 71 degrees in the evenings, then turning off the heater altogether until the next morning when I could once again set a comfortable "hold" temperature.

We did get to recharge our electric car, which was handy, but not essential.

Overall, the place is adequate but a bit dated. OK value, but nothing special.

Loved this location! The location is just a few blocks away from the beach, and it is tucked away in a very quiet neighborhood. Spanish moss hanging from the branches outside the windows gently swayed leaving us feel so relaxed. The woman at the front desk was so sweet and made us feel welcomed. Our room was a king suite with a kitchen. It was very spacious, and the patio/deck was huge. We cooked our own meals and ate on the patio. It couldn't have been more perfect.

The location of the hotel is great, away from traffic and city noise, walking distance to Asilomar Beach, and only minutes away from Trader Joes and the 17 mile drive. The rooms are a bit old and dark. An upgrade of the furniture and carpets is greatly needed. Overall it is acceptable, especially if a discounted rate is available.

The stay was extra comfortable and the room was very clean. Amenities were great considering COVID restrictions. The grab and go breakfast was presented well and drinks and utensils paper plates and bowls were all available. If staying in Pacific Grove or near Monterey, this quiet place will definitely keep you recharged - plus it was only a minute drive to the beach.

This is an out of the way hotel that's nestled in a nice, quiet neighborhood and is a 10 minute walk from Asilomar beach. Walking around the neighborhood you may well see several deer ( we encountered deer many times on our walks). If you're looking forward to being close to the Aquarium, restaurants, etc., you may want to look elsewhere. If you're looking for a quiet, comfortable getaway, though, this is the place. We encountered a couple of small problems during our stay -- the fireplace and a remote for one of the TVs wasn't working. They were not deal breakers. If I were to rate this place on just the location as a quiet getaway it would be easily 5 stars, but because the accommodations are basic, like most BWs, I have to give it 3. But, like I said, if you want quiet, clean, comfortable lodging that's affordable in this otherwise pricey area, this place fits the bill.

The location is great, and the rooms are spacious. I have enjoyed pervious stays at this property. However, in our most recent stay, cleanliness is a huge concern! Both beds in our room had DIRTY sheets upon arrival (Hair, leaves, crumbs- clearly not changed.) They did move us rooms, but that room had garbage left from a pervious guest. We had to go purchase Clorox wipes and cleaning products to clean the room because we were not convinced it had been thoroughly cleaned. In this time of COVID, I'd expect cleaning to be top-notch. I am not picky, but I expect a clean room and clean sheets. I am hopeful that they fix this and that it isn't a regular occurrence. The customer service was great, but cleanliness is a high priority for me.

We love staying here and returned for three days over Labor Day Week-end. Its close to Asilomar State Park and Beach.

The staff is awesome. They do a good job. Check-in, out, housekeeping, maintenance and area are nice.

We like the layout of the rooms; we get the suites. There is a private outside area (large), kitchen, living room/TV watching area, and comfortable king size bed. There is a fireplace there as well. We thoroughly like the room. There is a hidden feature in the room in the larger nook area above the curtains. In July we had a bicycle, this time a statue of a golfer. Its a kinky but fun thing.

Parking is free and there is both garage and outside parking If get back too late, there is good parking on the street.

Breakfast due to the virus was grab breakfast bag style. It was ok Prior to the virus, breakfast here was a highlight. Its nice they are still able to provide some nurishing food at this time. That's nice.

While some may like the more luxurious water front lodging in the area, we have visited many times and find this now 'our home away from home.: its easy to get to all area of the Monterey/Carmel Area.

Was looking forward to my stay here as the location was close to many sites we were planning on visiting (Monterey Aquarium, 17 Mile Dr, Asilomar Beach) and the pictures looked nice. No where on the site does it state that you may have to navigate 3 sets of stairs if you are on the top floor, as these units look like condos that may have been converted to a hotel. We did not ask for an "accessible" room as neither my husband or I are handicapped. I imagine that those may have a ground floor access or ramp. Since we were on a 2 1/2 week vacation visiting the Pacific Northwest area, our luggage was rather large and it was no easy feat schlepping our suitcases up all the stairs. I wish we were told about the steps. Also, the room that we had, had a SMALL stall size room that the toilet was in. I have been in public restrooms that were larger than this. I am not a large person (5'5" 130 lbs) but I had to squeeze between the toilet and door to fit in this tiny room. My husband (again NOT a large person 170 lbs) was having a hard time navigating this also. The pictures on the website do not show the type of bathroom we had. In fact they show a large glass walk in shower with a toilet (not in a separate room). The pictures must show the best rooms which we certainly did not have.

It has ceiling fans and we had the sliding door to the balcony open and it was absolutely quiet. Many PG motels are in busy roads making opening a window torture & air on is ancient and rattled. THIS hotel is a favorite simply because it is quiet and ventilation is great.
