I've been there many of times in the last few years I believe 4x prior. This time it was bad as the beds that my wife and I slept in it was to firm that on awaking up in the morning our shoulders were bruised from the bed. Putting that aside It's a lovely place and well centralized in PG.

When we first walked in, I was a little skeptical, because it seemed dark and not the type of room we're used to, but it ended up working perfectly for our family of 5! It was like a little condo. There was a large bed (King?)in a lower part of the large room with a TV, dresser, etc., and in...

We arrived at night in thick fog so couldn't see the outside at all. Great welcome and there was undercover garage parking. The hotel rooms were in individual buildings with I think 6 rooms in each. We were in an upstairs suite with a stunning room. Kitchen and spare room, great shower, big bedroom with loft space. In the morning...

This was a great location where we saw deer daily and the odd racoon.The room was spacious,comfortable and more like a studio flat. Fully equipped with fridge and microwave. The breakfast was ok more continental, the only hot meal was toast or waffle. Overall a great place to stay and would definitely return.

This was the most amazing place I have ever stayed, due to its location and unique property characteristics, the value and it's immaculate cleanliness and attention to order and detail. I love Pacific Grove. This little gem should be one of its best kept secrets for my sake.

Room was very clean. Our room (103) was great, except for the bed. It was very hard and could not get a good nights sleep. The staff was very helpful. Place was in a quiet neighborhood, no traffic noise at all.

My wife and I spent one night in this facility on a trip along the West Coast. The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. Pleasant reception. Breakfast was good. In a very nice location around a wooded area. Short drive to beach; easy access from 101.

Staying in Pacific Grove California is always good. It's fun watching wild deer wander about. There is magic in the forest, and walks through the village and at the sea coast are very uplifting.
