Nice location in Pacific Grove. Friendly, helpful staff at the front desk. The cottages are clean and quiet but furnished like your standard mom and pop motel room, so not a good choice if you're looking for charm or luxury. Breakfast also very basic but plenty of good options in town. A lot of our fellow guests seemed to be...

We had stayed there years ago and recently returned and hoped it was as good as it was the last time we stayed there. It was a very nice stay. What we love most about it was being able to have a little home away from home. We could have our meals in if we didn't want to go out...

We've stayed here 3 times over the last 4 years and each year I hope for better Wi-Fi. It is better now but not as good as it could be. There are times when you simply cannot get a connection. If you required a connection this can be frustrating. However we stay here for other reasons: cleaning staff are top...

Notified desk clerk who stated he would reboot system. Still unable to connect so notified desk clerk again. During each conversation he...

My wife and I have stayed at the hotel a number of times. Last trip we made a reservation for a one night stay. The room was held by a credit card. Upon making the reservation, I told the person that we will be paying in cash. We arrived around 5 PM checked in and paid cash. Once we returned...

We (2 couples) stayed in. Two bedroom cottage over New Year's Eve weekend. It was perfect for our needs. Having a kitchenette in the cottage, along with the living room area was perfect for hangout, watching movies and waiting for the ball to drop at midnight. It's a short walk to the beach from here and we saw numerous deer...

Pacific Grove, and The Bide-A-Wee Inn (one block from the beautiful Pacific Ocean) is our go-to place for a quiet romantic couple of days. You can drive to Monterey in 10 min, but avoid all of the busy traffic and ambient noise by coming back to peaceful Pacific Grove. The ocean views are second-to-none and the room rates are very...

We have stayed several times at the Bide A Wee Inn and Cottages in Pacific Grove. Lovely grounds, friendly and accommodating personnel, who are always ready to make your stay memorable.

What a charming place. Very pretty grounds. Beautiful sitting areas. I loved the fireplace in the room. My sister and I stayed at couple nights and both of us plan on returning. Drive around the corner and there's the beautiful Pacific :-) I would love to stay a week!
