Traveled to Monterey from SF Bay area. Rented two rooms one suite for my family and one king for my father traveling with us in the same car. Upon checking in we quickly realized there was a foul smell of sewer coming from the bathroom. Brown water had begun to fill the tub. I called the front desk and she... More

Nice accommodations, blocks from the ocean. We had a fireplace room, which was nice. Recently remodeled, but one complaint. The door opens into the bathroom just inches from the shower. To reach the toilet, you need to open the shower door, step into the shower, then close the door. Don't know if other rooms are like thst. Free breakfast.

Thank you so much for the review! The fireplace room, bathrooms are a little tight with the bathroom/shower doors opening into each other this is the reason the shower door can also swing inward as well as out. End rooms on lodge side have larger bathrooms where this is not an issue. We are happy to hear that you enjoyed... More

We have stayed at this hotel several times, usually 2 or 3 nights per visit. We have had maintenance issues which we have always mention to the hotel staff hoping that it will be fixed before our next visit. We just spent 2 nights there and have decided to throw in the towel and not return to this hotel. The... More

Stayed in this lodge this month for a quick over-night stay. We opened the glass door (screen door was broken) and to our surprise, we were literally by a cemetery. The beds were comfy and our stay was peaceful...it was just a little hard to 'not be freaked out' by the fact that we're by a cemetery :(

We stay here as often as we can. Close to the ocean, golf courses and 17 Mile drive. We had a mule deer visit our doorstep a buck with a huge rack and can watch the deer run along the golf course. Peaceful place to stay. Comfy bed, great breakfast and atmosphere.

Traveling to my second favorite get away on the Monterey Peninsula. Close to the tide pools, 17 mile drive and Pacific Grove. Near the lighthouse and golf course.

We originally booked 2 nights at the hotel, but ended up leaving after the first night. The room was okay, a little dated. We arrived after 9 PM and were assigned a room with a very noisy toilet that wouldn't stop running. We called the front desk, but there was no maintenance working that late at night and the hotel...

This Inn has two separate sides...the Lodge and the Cottages (somewhat pricier). We have stayed at both, but in recent years have stayed only in the cabins, which are well furnished, including a fireplace and jacuzzi tub. They are also are very clean. The cabins have a back patio area and ours had some occasional guests: a doe, a fawn... More

Lodge room was adequate, but not as nice as advertised, although I was forewarned by previous reviews. They are pretty accurate. Front desk people not really aware of what "service industry" means. Reply to everything was, "I've never stayed in our rooms, so I don't know anything about that!" "Renovated" room still had stained carpet and ripped screen door, but... More
