Cozy room and excellent location.

Posted 13-Apr-2016
While the rooms are small, they are very cozy and include everything a traveler needs: fridge & microwave, ironing board, ceiling fans, portable heater & fan and of course, TV. The bed linens were higher quality than I expected for the price of the room and the bed itself was reasonably firm. The continental breakfast goes a bit beyond the usual pastry and fruit and also includes hard boiled eggs and good quality breads for toast making. The location couldn't be better. It's right across from Lover's Point Beach and the coastal trail, which goes for miles in either direction. It's just a few blocks to Lighthouse Avenue, where there are many good choices for dining, interesting shops & art galleries. The only negative thing I can say is that some of the rooms are currently being remodeled, and it can be noisy during working hours. This interfered with my afternoon siesta and forced me out on the coastal trail instead. Not a bad thing at all. I would definitely go back.

Great value for the location

Not fancy, but not a Motel 6! The bed was comfy& I appreciated the coffee maker& fridge. But the location....ahhh the location made it hands down the BEST!!! It was phenomenal to walk out the door& be greeted by the GORGEOUS Monterey coast line!!! I went for a jog on the incredible coastal trail!! It's great for an over night trip, not for fancy accommodations.

We were welcomed on arrival at 6pm with cheese and wine! It mentioned to Julia (?) name that my husbands birthday was following day and she offered to arrange appropriate gifts to be delivered to our room. Excellent service!

Close to the beach, good location! Dark rooms though, fine for just one night! Would not recommend for longer stay.

Affordable hotel near Lover's Point

Posted 07-Mar-2016
Pros: Lovely location, perfect. Affordable.
Cons: I don't like it when I walk into a hotel and I'm treated like I'm doing the staff person a favor for staying there.
Location: Lovely location, if you are planning to drive along hwy 1, stop in this area. Be sure to stop in Carmel, which is nearby and well-worth a visit!
Overall, we liked our stay at this hotel, the room was small, but it was one of the most affordable places in the Pacific Grove area and we got a good night's sleep. Just a few steps down the block is the ocean, with beautiful views. Staff were somewhat indifferent to us. The breakfast is simple, but nice that they provided hard boiled eggs. This was the only hotel where the wifi worked for us on the entire CA trip, so hat's off to them on that.

Pros: Staff was very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable.
Location: Close to downtown and next to a park on the beach.
Stayed 2 nights. Staff suggested several things to do and places to eat, all in walking distance. Walking along the shore trail was the best.

Great Location

Posted 12-Feb-2016
Pros: Location and cleanliness.
Cons: Size.
Location: Close to ocean, golf, Monterey Bay Aquariam.
It Is nice clean hotel in an excellent location. The staff was very friendly and helpful. They serve a good little continental breakfast. The only drawback was the size of my room. The bathroom sink was almost next to the bed. The bath and toilet room was so small you could barely shut the door when inside. Since I wAs there by myself it wasn't a problem. I would not want to share the room.

Good bargain

Posted 05-Feb-2016
Pros: Free breakfast, friendly staff
This was a good room at a good price. My wife and I don't mind walking and it was not too far to walk to Downtown Monterey to walk. There is always Uber too.

Good value in a great location

Posted 04-Feb-2016
Pros: Friendly staff. Clean Great location next to the ocean.
Cons: The floor plan. But it's old, and it is what it is.
If you want a great location (assuming you think close to the ocean is a great location) at a very reasonable price, you'll be happy with Lover's Point. It is NOT a luxury hotel and certainly not suited for business travelers. But the mattress was excellent and all the amenities were provided. But this is an 'old-timey' hotel. Both the door and window in our room opened out onto the walk way, so the curtains were drawn at all times, which led to feeling a bit claustrophobic. We didn't have a view of the water from the first floor, but the upper floors would have such a view, but if I'd been there I think I still would have wanted the curtains drawn for privacy. If your plan is to be a sightseer and use your room for sleeping and napping only, this is a good choice for a few nights.
