You gotta be Kidding

We stayed here for 3 nights during the concourse - It was $1,350 When we got there they informed us that there was no maid service because of COVID- they did not clean the room. Over 3 days, they didn't even pick up the big pile of towels that the room next to us in the hall. there was never anyone at the desk and the breakfast was out in the lobby 24 hours a day - it was so old nobody even wanted to eat it
Comfortable, clean and well-located

Clean, better than average basic hotel in a convenient, quiet location close to everything In downtown Pacific Grove/Monterey. Good complimentary breakfast options in lobby each morning. Comfortable bed, good sleep quality; great TV & WiFi, nice toiletries included. My only quibble is that front desk quoted me a very high (almost 2x) rate to extend my stay, stating high demand due to auto show in PG that coming weekend (i was asking about a Tuesday night (!!) stay and didn’t see quoted rate on their own website. I did appreciate room upgrade on check in. Recommended.
Average motel, Though On Par With the Area

I like the location on light house way, a little bit away from the touristy spots but still a super short driving distance to Lover's Point, the aquarium, and Fisherman's Wharf. The hotels in the area are all of the motel type, or in slight disrepair because they are on the seaside.
I took my mom to Monterey for her birthday. At first they put us in room 110, which was at the bottom of the stairwell. People using the stairs could see into our room and we could hear folks walking up and down the stairs, we also had cars headlights shining into our room, and could clearly hear the family staying in the room above us. needless to say, we barely slept. THANKFULLY they swapped our room the next day to room 212 and it was night and day. The second room was so much quieter and we didn't have any trouble keeping our room dark at night.
The parking lot wasn't big but we never had trouble finding parking. It was a plus that free parking was offered, and some breakfast options. The breakfast was sufficient to start the day (self made waffles, toast, yogurt, coffee, juice, oatmeal packets), but I was dissapointed that there were no eggs.
There are some tables and chairs outside that looked comfortable but it was too cold for us to go outside. The place was passable, I felt like I was in a private room in a hostel. I probably wouldn't stay there again unless I knew that I could stay on the second floor and I got a good deal on the room.
Something curious though, I was charged $226 before ever arriving at the hotel and charged an extra $50 deposit when I checked in and paid for my room. It has been a week since we stayed there and I still haven't gotten that money back...
Room tip: if you're a big family, rooms 212 (2 QBs) and 214 (1 QB) can connect and there is a kitchen with a dining table between them! I thought that was the coolest part of the whole motel. Truthfully though, the next time I go to Momnterey I would probably stay somewhere else.
Would not recommend

When I made my reservation I called to make sure we could get a crib for my son. The lady at the desk said “absolutely I will add it to your reservation!”…when we arrived the man at the desk was very rude and without saying it told me I was a liar and I must have called the wrong number because they don’t even have a crib, so no one would have told me we could get one. After calling multiple people he said “oh you were right you called, it was someone else working the desk, but did you know there’s a charge for a crib?” He ended up not charging us because I told him I was not paying it and he had another hotel drop off a crib for us to use.
Room was ok nothing special, the shower sucked. Breakfast was terrible. Walls are paper thin, we could hear the people’s conversation very clearly through the wall. All around we paid a ton for just a bed to sleep in.
Will not stay again
It was OK

Nice room at the quieter part of Lighthouse Ave. Close to downtown and gate to 17 mile drive as well as the Ocean Front Drive along the bay. Property is well maintained. The only downside was there is no indoor seating for breakfast. We took ours to the room which was OK, but I would suggest to management to provide trays so the food can be transported in one or two trips instead of several trips up and down the stairs.
