Velcome back to the 80-is.
Big big room. Old fashioned but clean. Nice beds. Breakfast was better than expected and coffe very good.
Staff nice and friendly.

The down side is the smell and the cold room. As it has not been used in a long long time. It smells like wet concrete and the air inside the room feels cold and wet.

This hotel needs an update to get greate again, or get sheeper in price. Beacuse it is not worth it.

We were a little bit wary after reading some of the mixed reviews, but this place had openings at a reasonable price when we booked. We considered it just a place to have a bed at night since there are so many things to do in Monterey and Pacific Grove. Our stay was wonderful. The front desk was friendly and helpful. A nice clean quiet room with a fireplace and log. Walking distance to the beaches and plenty of parking. A pleasant surprise bonus was that we could buy tickets for two days entry to the Monterey Bay Aquarium for the price of one at the front desk. There is free wi-fi but you might have to move around to find a good location. We supplemented our breakfast with fresh fruit we bought at the Farmer's market on Monday. Overall an enjoyable stay and would return to this place in the future.

This a well located hotel. Walking distance to the beach(3 blocks), can walk to town (1 mile).
Staff are friendly, rooms clean and spacious. Some have fireplaces. Continental breakfast is included in the price. Very happy with this stay.

We were not happy with the Customer Service at the Monarch Resort in Pacific Grove this July4th weekend. Glad we only stayed 1 night and went somewhere else for the remaining days. The Front Desk staff (Dee) was extremely rude upon check in and for that main reason alone we will not be returning. We stayed here in the past a few times and the rooms were okay but this time it was unacceptable with cobwebs in the room and the bed sheets were dingy in color and didn't feel clean! I had a terrible night sleeping.

We stayed here for a vacation and rented the room for about 7 days. I'll tackle this on a couple different fronts.

We wanted to stay somewhere quieter than Monterey. We spent a lot of time there, but at the end of the day, we wanted some piece and quiet. We got that here.

The parking is good. It's located under the hotel and there is a space for every room. Plenty of room to back up and it wasn't really ever full.

We vacationed in October, so things were a little bit less busy and a little cooler than normal. The room was a little on the warm side. There was a fan in the room and there is a balcony with a door that can be opened, so most of the time, that was how we left it. The bed was comfy and the room was clean and the staff were friendly.

This resort does have a pool and hot tub. I did. It partake. Honestly, we were on the second floor and looked down over the pool and hot tub. They looked kind of dirty, so We avoided them.

This Kia action is just off the coast. More often than not, cell phone signals are rough. It's really no fault of the hotel, but it is something to. E aware of.

Sunset Beach is 1 block away. Very nice. We watched sunsets every night. This hotel is located in a more wooded location. As a result, we saw lots of deer, owls and a other wildlife.

If we ever go back to Monterey/ pacific grove, we'll go back.
