We stayed here for two nights in January. The location is incredible, as it is located between the quaint little downtown of Pacific Grove and the Pacific Ocean. You can easily walk to either. The room looks like they are slowly upgrading to a newer look, but some of the decor and fixtures have been left behind in 1980. The...

To much noise, the walls are thin and you can everything going on in the other rooms. Most rooms have no window , therefor no ventilation and no air .Their rooms smell musty. The breakfast is a joke Will not ever stay there again.

The Olympia Lodge is a convenient and comfortable motel very close to the ocean. The rooms are not fancy but are clean and reasonable. We have stayed there before and will definitely consider for future stays.

Got a deal through Travel zoo for $139 for two nights. The rate was normally $139/night, which would be a little high for room. It's not fancy, but was very clean and comfortable. Most of our time is spent out of the room, anyway. Furnishings were fine. There's a small fridge in the room. Carpet was really clean. Bathroom was...

It is hard to find a place near the ocean in the Monterrey area of California that is not overly expensive for the senior traveler. I search long and hard before I chose the Olympia Lodge. I was not expecting luxury. i just wanted to be comfortable and near enough to the ocean to see the sun rise and sunset...

I got a groupon to come here. Thank God, because I would have been very upset having to pay full price for this place. Very basic. Old ragged towels. Rust all over the bathroom fixtures. Dripping water from faucet, no shampoo, just soap in the shower. Not impressed. Would not return.

The hotel was ok. It was clean and the staff was polite. The beds were great, comfortable with good linens. The upkeep needed improvement. There were small repairs that have not been done, the shower head didn't work well, the tub didn't drain well and the lock on the glass door that would allow us to keep the door open...

The hotel is ok, I purchased my room through Groupon @ $130.00 for a Saturday night in late October. When asking the receptionist on Sunday morning about rates if I wanted to return she quoted me $79.00 - $99.00 depending on view. (understanding slow season) And she also said she had a walk up on Saturday night who got a...

Spent just one night of a recent road trip here, and found it comfortable and adequate. Our only negative was the bathroom was very small, leaving little room for our supplies. The overall room was spacious and comfortable, and on a quiet street near the lighthouse. There are deer on the nearby golf course, and the ocean is close also,...

I was very disappointed when we got to our room. The hotel could be such a gem but unfortunately it is very neglected. Our room smelled so bad of mold and was do musty that we had to go buy a can of febreeze. After using the whole bottle we could stand to be in the room. You could see...
