Great Location

Posted 30-Jul-2014
Pros: Again, great location and views, very nice contineantal breakfast, and the satff were all very nice.
Cons: Bathrooms, closets, and better fans
Location: Nice beaches, great walking and biking paths, Fisherman's Wharf with tours, Carmel and Big Sur is close.
Great location, great area, nice staff. The rooms, although they have a wonderful view, can best be described as early college dorm. Bathroom (such as it is) was tiny. The room had did not have a closet, just a rack for hanging clothes. Visitors need to understand that the hotel is not air conditioned (most in the area appear not to have A/C either), which normally is not a problem in Monterrey/Pacific Grove. The weather during our stay was a little unseasonably warm and the room was uncomfortable in the late afternoon, early evening.

Great Location

Posted 28-Jul-2014
Pros: In the heart of Pacific Grove, across the street from the ocean at Lover's Point.
Cons: It's an old hotel. Short of demolition and building a new hotel, they've done what they can. The underground parking is a little dicey.
Location: Scuba dive. Kayaking. Walking. Safe swimming in ocean for kids. Cannery Row in Monterey. Soaking in some salt air. Wine tasting.
1960's style hotel, so don't expect a modern full service hotel. It's right on the ocean, which is a plus, but ocean front properties often do not have air conditioning, and the room can get warm at times. You open the windows and let the breeze blow in. Rooms are small, it's not a hotel that one would just hang around in during the day. The bed was a double bed, too small for our liking, but the room will not allow for anything larger. Due to the location, this hotel thrives. If it were located on an interstate it would not be received warmly.

Close to beach, terrible bed. No air conditioning

Posted 24-Jul-2014
Staff was friendly, hotel was just very outdated. The mattress was the worst I have ever had to use. Only heat in the room on the first floor, nog A/C or fan even.

Great value!

Posted 20-Jul-2014
Pros: Great location. Sufficient continental breakfast. Clean room with very comfortable bed. It was very quiet. We heard sea-gulls at night. We liked that.
Cons: For the price we thought it was a great value. They probably should put up a sign pointing out where the underground parking is.
Location: Walking distance to Lover's Point. A nice park right on the beach with stairs down to the sand.
My wife and I wanted to take a short one day break (mini-vacation). We hadn't stayed in Monterey before but wanted to be close to the beach at a reasonable price. We were very happy with our stay at the Lover's Point Hotel. The staff were friendly, the room was nice (we ended up getting a third floor room with an ocean view even though we'd thought we'd reserved a room without a view). The bed was very soft. The furnishings weren't fancy but were adequate. The room at a microwave and small refrigerator. We were able to walk across the street to the Lover's Point park (right on the ocean). We got a great price through Expedia. The breakfast was fine. It had fresh fruit, juice, various kinds of cereals, rolls, cinnamon raisin bread, teas, coffee, and hard boiled eggs. We spoke with people from Switzerland, Germany, Taipei, Spain, and more. A couple of hours after breakfast we headed over to the 1/4 mile tour guided tour through the Monterey State Park System (customs house, the first brick house, whaling house, and more) for 5 dollars per person. It was around 9 minutes away by car. We had a great time. We would recommend the Lover's Point Hotel to all of our friends.

old facility, pictures on site are misleading

Posted 07-Jul-2014
Pros: Nothing
Cons: complete redo....I would not recommend this to anyone
Location: good location to Montery bay and area....
elevator broken down, had to use stairs coming and going, as well as carrying luggage to and from the car. not enough parking, the room smelled, screen's on windows were bent giving me the idea that the room can be easily broken into. I was sorry I stayed there for the amount of money I paid. I feel misled .....

Hotel with great location

Posted 06-Jul-2014
Pros: Location
Cons: Most everything
The room was not clean. Mainly the carpet was stained in several places. The privacy tag was not in the room. Had to ask the desk clerk for one. Then on the Third day with the privacy tag in the card slot we had a man try to get in the room using a key. When I reported it to the manager she at first made excuses but then said it was not proper for him to do that. She said she would check into it. She never got back to us on this. They had coffee in the little room where they had the breakfast, all the time which was nice. It was good coffee. The people at the desk were nice and polite and helpful. The rooms are small but it was a special so not a surprise. The location was fantastic. The area is very pretty and a mile walk to cannery row. Will go back to the Monterey area but use a different hotel.
