Bide-A-Wee-Inn & Cottages
Reviewed 29 October 2017

We rented a 1 bedroom cottage with a kitchen. Overall I'd say that Bide-A-Wee is a nice little hotel. I'll list things for my review as Pros/Cons.

Great location a block from Asilomar Beach area
Two blocks to the light house
Comfy bed
Nice small bathroom
Medium sized flat panel TV
Having a kitchen
Nice stove
Very small frig
Full sized microwave
Nice gas fireplace
Plenty of lighting and electric outlets
There are picnic tables if you want to eat outside
Some rooms are pet friendly for a charge

Forget the free internet - it didn't work most of the time. If we complained, they reset the router and it was good for about 10 minutes.
Couch was not comfortable (our camp chairs were more comfy)
Some ants on the stove and counter (we made sure to keep stuff put away and clean so we wouldn't attract any more.
Only one night stand by bed in a very small bedroom.

This was our second time staying here. We like it because it is located right off of Lighthouse and faces the ocean. Asilomar Beach is just a short walk away. The room is spacious with microwave, small fridge, and a toaster. They provide a modest continental breakfast between 8-10 am. We bring our own coffee and heating coil to boil eggs. There are many restaurants nearby and since Pacific Grove is near to Point Lobos, Carmel, and Big Sur, we can plan our excursions. We like to check out the Monarch Butterfly Sanctuary when we get back in early to mid-afternoon. This is a quiet and convenient place for us to stay when we visit the area.

Amenities are bare minimum, Breakfast? What Breakfast? Coffee, tea, muffins if your lucky. No fans or A.C.. WiFi didn't work. Resv. were screwed up & had to change rooms in mid visit. Not apologetic or helpful, nor friendly. Felt unwelcomed.
At $200.+ a night, you'd think they would care. Nope

HORRIBLE Customer Service!! I email and tried to cancel this stay over 7 days out. I received call from the hotel the day of the stay saying that the stay was not cancelled and that the only to remove the charge was to dispute with my credit card. The manager on duty later found my email in his junk mail, but still would not refund me. At this point I have had to dispute with AMEX for the last two months.

This adorable Inn in perched up one block from the beautiful Monterey coast line! The rooms are outdated but definitely fits the vibe of the location. Staff was very accommodating! Upon arrival I asked for suggestions on a good place for dinner that wouldn't be too touristy and Alex recommended that my husband and I try the Fishwife restaurant, which is located just down the street from the Inn. We love the idea of not having to travel through unknown streets to get to the restaurant. Fishwife has delicious food and drinks! We enjoyed our stay so much that we have already booked another stay for November!

Stayed: August 2017
