We stayed for 1 night in a room on the 2nd level. It was quiet and comfortable however when I had booked I had requested 2 Queens beds and on arrival it was 1 queen and 1 single. The room was clean though the decor looked a little tired and the bed valance was ripped. It is a few minutes...

We were very pleased with our experience at the Clarion Collection, The Wilkie's Inn in Pacific Grove. Ray was very accommodating when we found out that our son was coming as well, requiring an additional bed. Also, since I ran in a marathon the next day, I asked for a late check-out, for which they also agreed. So it was...

First time we stayed on a visit to the area to spend time with family. We've previously stayed at other hotels close by. We were pleasantly surprised by Wilkies. Very friendly staff, helpfully arranged for late night arrival. Clean basic rooms -- and quiet! Breakfast buffet is nothing special. But the location is very good for walking one direction to...

I was attending a conference at Asilomar and was looking for affordable lodging. I found The Wilkie's Inn to be in my price range, and perfect walking distance to the conference grounds (about 1.7 miles). The staff was very friendly and helpful, rooms were clean, bed was comfortable, Internet access was free, and the free breakfast was adequate. Other than...

A friend and I stayed at Wilkie's Inn last weekend when we were in Pacific Grove to visit the Monarch butterflies, a mere two blocks away in a two-acre cove. The best part of the room was the down pillows, ample and inviting. The beds were fairly comfortable, tho the decor was dated. The telephone line crackled. We needed instructions...

My wife and I stayed here on the Veteran's Day Weekend. These are good basic accommodations at a value price...61.99 for a King plus applicable taxes. The rooms are nicely done, dated, but still nice. Our room was clean with a micro wave and free WiFi. They have a continental breakfast: juice,coffee,pastries,waffles,fruit,toast.The USA TODAY is available in the office. It's...

This is a nice inn, just out of Montery. Therefor cheaper, but restaurants are in walking distance. Rooms are ok, got all the amenities you'll need. Perfect for a night over, if you're traveling further the next morning.

Debated for a while between 3 and 4 stars. Good location, friendly staff. Room clean, unique vacation-theme decoration, tiled bathroom, energy-saving light bulbs throughout. Caters to families with children, less to business travel. Room with microwave and fridge, slight slope in floor. Antitheft coathangers. Walls on the thin side, but amazingly quiet night, good rest, and comfortable (firm) king bed....

First thing we noticed when we walked into the room was that the bed was higher at the foot than at the head. When we mentioned this to the manager, she told us it would be fixed or they would move us to another room. When we returned the bed looked level until you sat on it. Then it bowed...

We are glad to hear what we do right and what we do wrong. All of our rooms are comfortable with fridge and micro wave. Our hotel do provide comfortable beds as well but it's a personal touch for some people how they feel it. Some are firm and some are very comfy. So the first room you had may...

They have managed to upgrade the property where it counts : good plumbing, energy efficient lighting, new microwave and refrigerator, High Definition TV with 300 channels, Wi-fi that works, painting and adding wallpaper crown borders (in our room) , new doors and windows, and excellent locks . At the same time, they have kept the quaintness of a hotel built...
