          The King Deluxe room was clean and very spacious, the decor was tasteful and pleasing, and the location was very peaceful and quiet. Comfortable chairs in the room. Microwave provided on request. I also liked that there were grassy areas with picnic tables.

          Continental breakfast was limited to sweet muffins and coffee (didn't see decaf) or tea; would have been nice to have a few more choices. Also, the website mentions a writing desk - however, there were no chairs that could be used with the 1/2 table in the room.

          The bed was very comfortable. The check-in clerk was very pleasant. The built in desk was convenient, and the individual bedside lamps were a welcome change, with nice level of lighting--not glaring. The pull-out shelf on the bedside chest was very helpful and convenient. The arm chair was comfortable. The decor was attractive, though not opulent. The overhead chandelier that was on the wall switch also had a pleasing level of light.

          The curtains need blackout panels. One-way glazing on the windows would be helpful.

          The bed was comfortable and we slept well. The landscaping was very pretty and parking was free.

          Not a full service hotel - no wake up calls and front desk slow to answer in evenings. Room smells of mold and there were ants. Room appeared larger in photos but actually quite small - basically mostly bed. TV high on wall and very small.

          The rate we had was great and within our budet. Located in a safe and quiet environmentm not too far from the Aquarium. The room had everything we needed. Breakfast was simple, but nice - just what we needed.

          Location and price.

          Sadly, the room was very disappointing. Closet door jammed on runner. Bathroom exhaust fan extreme noise. Refrig and applicances all old and noisy. Seemed like old mattress. Old, unmatched furniture. Lower price due discounter was the appeal but room was not worth it. Maybe we should have paid full price for a better room. Pool and outdoor area including picnic tables were very nice.

          Muffins at breakfast

          Electrics were unsafe; lodge was actually a motel; smokey room; exceptionally bad value for money; locks on room didn't work properly; continental breakfast was light

          I like that it was somewhat quiet.

          The rooms are small.

          We liked how close this was to Monterey Bay Aquarium. We were less then 5 mins away even with having to go through town at 15mph, so slow! It is a beautiful drive through and amazing views. This is a ranch style motel, older but for the most part remodeled nicely..still working kinks out but location was great.

          The afternoon clerk at the lobby was a bit short and seemed almost put off to help. I had to call about curtains for the windows which was strange and she was little concerned which irritated me but we got through it. Over all for the $80 a night I would say its not that bad. I didnt get the 2 queen beds like I booked, they said I recieved a "ungrade to a king" even though they knew I was traveling with my child. It was strange but it worked out.

          it was cosy, clean and near by Monterey.

          The price was to high for that kind of hotel.

          cute... smiling staff.. beautiful pacific grove, check in ;parking., refrigrator i room was great, decor was cute.

          need railing at offie for handicapped, need bathrooms to have plumbing that works aat a reasonabloe rate, do not like to plunge the toilet at 2am, ants in bathroom had nnothig to eat, , clean furnace grate, put screen on window, get toll free numbers to work on phone in less than 24 hours, improve customer relations program for customers who did not receive vaue for money paid.a $10 discount does not come close to discomfort. Lots of deferred maintnance

          the walk to the beach was not too far. the bed was large and comfortable

          the photos on line were not of the room we had, it was much larger looking and the only thing that was the same was the bed spread. the room was the size of the bed plus walk around the bed only.

          Getting in and out of parking lot was very difficult. Bathrooms need major updating,

          I really liked the location. The Lodge is cute and quaint. The room was newly furnished with nice furniture, carpet and bedding. The furnishings were better than I expected.

          Despite the new furnishings and paint, it was still an old motel. There was a musty smell, the walls were very thin, there were no frills in the bathroom. Even an extra towel bar would have been appreciated.In these regards it was what you would expect for a motel at this location at this price.
