Very disappointed

Poor cell/internet service. Mainly packaged breakfast. Small room with no air conditioner & no screen on slider. Uncomfortable beds. Ants in room. Good location.

Perfect location for walking to ocean views.

Lovely flowers and lots of trees around. Excellent complimentary breakfast. Toilet leaked at first, but staff fixed it immediately. Needs more comfortable chairs in room.

This is an older hotel with paper thin walls and uncomfortable beds and pillows. We had an "amazing" view of the cemetary that sits directly behind the property. I'd consider this place a "budget hotel". With the rates they charge find some place nicer....you'll be happy you did.

Very nice hotel.

Pros: It's very peaceful.
Cons: Location of the fireplaces and the breakfast could have been much better.
Location: Nice place to walk to the beach.
Very nice hotel. My only complains would be that the fireplace was located on the side of the bed and was only about 2 feet from the bed so it was hard to sit in front of. My second complaint is that the breakfast wasn't very good. No eggs, no hot oatmeal or packets. And also no fruit.

A little disappointed in the room. We were in a pet friendly room, but the carpets were badly stained. The room was large and otherwise clean. Breakfast was mediocre, parking was good, and the location excellent. Staff was great.

Cozy Lighthouse Hotel

Pros: Location,quietness,courteous staff and wonderful comfortable bed!
Cons: The carpet had a few very noticeable spots and in between the double paned Windows was a cloudy film you couldn't see through.
Location: Near the Asilomar and 17 mile drive beach, 5 minutes from Monterey Cannery row,aquarium and restaurants and shops. 10 minutes from Carmel.
Upon arrival we were sent to a room that had only a full sized bed. We went back to the front desk and exclaimed how the travelocity agent stated that we'd receive the King bed accomodations I requested before the room was booked. I asked him at least three times or more about the King Bed. However the Hotel clerk stated,' because the room was booked through a third party, in this case Travelocity,that request is never guaranteed.' After our conversation the clerk kindly searched for an available room and was able to fulfill our wishes! The staff was very kind and caring! It shall never be forgotten. Now I know where we will always stay when we visit Pacific Grove,Ca. I really liked this Hotel. The location was perfect for what we needed. It was very nice! The bed was fantastic. I should have enquirer as to what kind it was,as I slept quite soundly every night of our trip. I have to give this Hotel a 10 rating. Excellent!!!!! So glad I found it on Travelocity.com.

Everything was just ok

Pros: Friendly staff, room was extremely clean and well prepped.
Cons: Doors all needed WD40. Shouldn't need LONG confusing instructions to turn on and set the AC.
Location: Very close to shopping, food, cafes etc. Short drive to Cannery Row /aquarium.
Excellent location for the hotel & staff extremely kind. However. Breakfast buffet lacked a lot unless you wanted to spend an extra $8 per person for the better breakfast. Hotel right next to a cemetery which was not noted anywhere. Nothing like looking out over your balcony and seeing tombstones.All the doors needed WD40 because they squeaked. And the AC we couldn't get to work AT ALL and our room was 78o inside. We had to leave the balcony door open all night to keep the room cool. Great location (except being next to a cemetery) and excellent rates though.

We have always enjoyed our stay here but!

Pros: Location is great.
Cons: Communication
Location: Near the ocean. A walk or short car ride to the small town of Ocean Grove. Close to Cannery Row and the Wharf. The beautiful town of Carmel.
Very nice we stay on the side with the cottages. The Lodge side great for families with kids. Close to the ocean. In a natural area, always see deer and have seen otters in the ocean and watched the whales way out in the distance. Cottages comfortable and roomy. Redecorated recently, very nice. The cottage side is more expensive but well worth it with the size of the rooms and the table waited and menu breakfast They also have a very nice wine tasting about 4 p.m. So with the amenities worth the money. We booked a cottage the beginning of May. They were renovating the dining room. No dining room breakfast or wine tasting. We were not told about the renovation..We would have probably booked another week. if we were aware of the renovation.
