"Fabulous experience at Bernardus Lodge & Spa"
We spent three nights at Bernardus at the end of a 10-day vacation driving up the Pacific Coast Highway. From the moment we pulled in, we were greeted by friendly and helpful valet staff, offered a glass of wine while checking in (definitely needed after a few hours in the car that day), and shown to a beautiful room. The room is spacious, with an extremely comfortable bed and bedding, great sitting area, and small outdoor area. The bathroom is amazing -- huge soaking tub, large shower, separate toilet area & double sinks. The grounds are beautiful and the staff could not be more helpful. As an added plus, I had the best chocolate martini ever as a nightcap on our final night. Would highly recommend and would love to return. Easy drive into Carmel-by-the-Sea, 17-mile road, and even shorter drive to the town of Carmel Valley with several lovely tasting rooms.

"Excellent hotel!"
Excellent hotel close to everything. Very good hotel staff extremely pleasant. Beautiful room. I would recommend that you get a room facing the ocean. The ones facing the street can be noisy at night. But beautiful room and breakfast. It was nice to get to know the other guests during the wine and cheese segment in the afternoon. The roof garden was nice and we got to see whales in the bay.

"Great location, lovely hotel"
Spent two nights here. Room was great, very spacious. Had an inland view but across the street had great ocean views. Valet parking was free which was good as this is not an inexpensive place to stay. However there is a resort fee. We didn't use the pool and spa facilities. Nice coffee shop. In easy walking distance of bars and restaurants or the hotel will drop you off / pick you up from local places.

"Very nice hotel with a lot of character."
I was traveling with my son and the owner Rick made it very comfortable for us. He moved us to a room with a view which was so nice. The bed was very comfortable. He introduced us to the other guests and sat with us in the evening as we all chatted about where we were from and where we were headed. It was a very nice experience.

    An Authentic Experience

    For a memorable and authentic travel experience, book a room in an independent hotel in Monterey. From historic buildings to luxury boutique hotels, beach-front inns to family-friendly resorts, these properties ooze character and charm. At an independent hotel, you can expect exceptional service, an intimate atmosphere and unique décor. Rooms may be decked out with locally-crafted furniture or antique furnishings, with quirky or period artwork. Such properties are usually competitively priced, so you can enjoy great value for money. If you wish to experience Monterey like a local in a property that feels like a second home, choose to stay in an independent hotel.

    Service and Amenities at an Independent Hotel

    Many independent hotels offer extra-special add-ons, such as pet-friendly rooms, bicycle hire, afternoon sherry or chocolate-chip cookies at bedtime. They may even host themed dinners or walking tours to make you feel even more welcome.

    The joy of staying in an independent hotel is the unique amenities they provide to show off their character. You might find your room has a claw-foot bathtub or fireplace, free bottled water or extra pillows and blankets.

Scattered throughout the county, independent boutique hotels, inns and lodges can be found in Carmel-by-the-Sea, Santa Cruz, Monterey, Pacific Grove, Salinas and many other top locations.

    Book a room in an independent hotel in Pacific Grove to be within easy reach of Big Sur, Carmel, Point Lobos State Reserve and Pebble Beach, as well as top attractions, such as the Monterey Bay Aquarium, Cannery Row and Fisherman's Wharf.
