What else you want from short vacation stay?

I guess, I want to stay longer next time. Pleasant walk to the beach, explore tide pools, watch beautiful sunset into the ocean, walk or bike to the Monarch Grove Butterflies park. The same quiet pass we used to ride to Monterey. The south direction leads to the entrance to 17 Mile Drive, so you can enjoy the most attractive beaches on the ocean view for free (no fee from bicyclists). Full breakfast, large room with kitchen and utensils, balcony...

Great value

Both the check in and check out were very fast. The room was very clean and comfortable. There was a working microwave, fridge, and a coffee maker. Couple plates and some silverware. The only negative side is the heater. It was super loud and when turned on it felt super hot, but once turned off, became instantly cold. The property is very beautiful and very close to all the points of interest: 17-mile drive, ocean, beaches, stores, and restaurants. Breakfast was provided, but very simple: bages, cream cheese, and cereal. Overall, great value, nice comfort.

Great for family

The suites are so roomy! My husband, adult daughter and I stayed together and never felt crowded. My brother as his wife and 2 small kids stayed comfortably in another room. Full kitchen is amazing and clean.

OK?

HJ should pay closer attention to this motel. Poor layout for 2 rooms with a family of 4. Location was OK.

Nice location and and a value...

This hotel is set in a tree-lined family neighborhood so it was very quiet during our stay. We saw deer walking up the road in the evening but I don't think it's probably that rare in this woodsy setting. The location is a bit tricky if you're unfamiliar with that area, but the friendly and knowledgeable receptionist was glad to mark -up an area map for us. The lobby is very well stocked with maps and pamphlets and the complex layout is nice. The shower was consistently hot w/ adequate pressure. The fridge, microwave and TV all worked, however the desk lamp was inoperable. The quiet ceiling fan is a nice touch and added to my perfect Room Comfort rating. If you can put up with a few odd stains on the floor then this is the place. Thanks to Orbitz I was able to get what I think was a very fair value, all things considered. I will add this to my list of places to stay in the future.

Nice and Woodsy

I read earlier reviews saying this place was musty...EVERY place in Pacific Grove is musty! It's foggy all the time. The room was comfortable, albeit kind of a funky layout. Parking was a little tight, but O.K. Basically, for the price it's a really good value for the Monterey Peninsula.
