Lighthouse Lodge and Suites

The TA reviews for Lighthouse Lodge and Suites PG are across the board. Some people love it and some people say their room was run down, dirty, and smelled bad. I'd like to hear a fair, true review on this place. Is it a filthy "Motel Hell" or a clean, comfortable establishment? We have a reservation in August for two nights and are questioning whether we should cancel it or keep it.

My husband and I have stayed at Lighthouse many times in the last 10 years and love the location, yes the rooms overlooking the cemetery were the ones we preferred. We did stay in the suites once but preferred the lodge. We noticed a couple of years ago that the room were looking pretty "tired" as someone else said, the breakfast quality was not as good as it previously had been. We last stayed there in November 2010 and shortly thereafter the Lighthouse sent us an email notice that the hotel was being taken over by the bank! Perhaps this is why there was so much deferred maintenance on the property. It may be better now, we haven't stayed there since. I hope the hotel is in better hands now and gets some needed updating, it really was a good place to stay and sooo close to the water and the running/ walking trail. We stayed at the Sea Breeze in March 2010 and it was clean and comfortable.

The property was just purchased in mid-August and the new owners have been very aggressive in regards to maintenance issues that had plagued the property in the past. A priority list was established for major issues and most have already been accomplished or being addressed. Water pressure valves have been replaced, exterior trim painting has been ongoing, roofs are being repaired or replaced, all carpets have been shampooed, exterior lighting has been repaired. A pretty long list of improvements in less than two months and more will be implemented in the future.

The property has a large percentage of repeat guests and many have made very positive comments regarding the improvements they have seen being made and planned for the next year.

Just stayed at the property for the ATT Pebble Beach Pro-Am and we really enjoyed our stay at the property. Very pleasant & attentive staff, very clean! A nice buffet breakfast and afternoon BBQ were included in the rate that is definitely a great value when comparing other rates in the area. Met quite a few guests that really like the location & have been staying there for years.

The afternoon BBQ sounds like a nice touch! You don't find too many places that offer something like that included with your hotel rate. Pacific Grove is a lovely coastal town. Red House Cafe and Fandango are two of our favorite restaurants there.

Enjoy your time on the coast! :)

The BBQ at the lodge typically consists of hamburgers, hot dogs, pasta salad, chips, cookies ... The wine/cheese hour at the suites typically consists of veggies/dip, cheese & crackers, brownies and a pasta or sliced armenian pinwheel sandwiches. Nothing crazy elaborate but enough to fill you up!

We stayed at the suites property in December for 2 nights and ended up skipping going out to dinner both nights. Instead we enjoyed wine & heavy snacks and relaxed in our room and took walks around the property. Helped us save alot of money! Yaaaaay!
