The room was clean, but smelled a bit musty at times. TV includes regular cable, no pay-per-view system. Overall, I thought it was fair for the room rate paid, but think "motel" more than anything else.

The room is clean, spacious, and quaint. Worth the $$. It was quiet and pleasant. No frills but it is what I was looking for within our budget. The staff were helpful and pleasant. They came right away when the TV was not working. They sell Monterey Bay Aquarium tickets good for 2 consecutive days for the price of 1....

Really enjoyed the quiet and peacefulness. Very comfortable. Appreciated being in a room with no one upstairs. Great parking and staff were very friendly and helpful. Rooms were nicely decorated and very clean.

Located close to the lighthouse and coast line (+17mile drive) with parking outside the room. Check-inn was fast and informative (about the area, restaurants and so on). The room was spacious, warm and clean. Breakfast consisted of oatmeal, muffins, fruit (juice and coffee). We had all in all a very pleasant stay :-)

My family has stayed in Monterey for the last 10 years and this year decided to try something new. We greatly enjoyed this Inn - it has the look at first of a cute motor lodge, but the rooms are nice with all the amenities you would expect of a big hotel. The beds were comfortable, the rooms clean and...

My stay at the Inn was very nice. Clean and comfortable room, very large bathroom, comfy King bed, pet friendly, nice staff and beautiful grounds. Close to downtown and the beach. This was my second visit and I would come back again.

stayed here off season, on a Monday check-in, Thursday check-out. Location was great, quiet neighborhood walking distance from the ocean. We were upgraded to a cabin when we arrived, which was fantastic since we have a 2 year old and having the extra room was great for us parents! We do plan on returning again!

My wife and I stayed for two nights and will stay again when we return. Clean, comfortable room and bed. Single story building (so on one above) and our car parked steps from the rooms door. The staff were all friendly and it appears like they are working diligently to improve their complex. Overall... Quiet and roomy. Muffins, packages of...

We had a nice room with a little patio attached, perfect for our canine companions. And only a short drive to nearby Asilomar beaches, and downtown Pacific Grove, restaurants and shopping. This is our go to place for enjoyable human and canine adventure. Quiet location and friendly staff.
