A lovely little spot a block away from the beach. Even though the Inn was full it did not seem that way. Snuggled inside a community that was rich with a variety of trees and gardens, it was hard to believe that it was located in a city. We were impressed by the variety of birds, hummingbirds and butterflies that could be seen and heard. Even had deer in the area. There was a lovely water feature that delighted a pair of hummingbirds as they stopped to bathe. Our room (2 bedrooms) was basic .... and somewhat difficult to navigate around some old heavy furniture. If refurbishing is on the agenda, we would encourage the use of less bulky furniture so that one could get around easier. The main bedroom had the small balcony while the adjoining bedroom had the sink, fridge and microwave ... an inconvenient set up. The breakfast consisted of a variety of packaged foods ... typical of most Best Westerns. What was disheartening was the lack of recycling! Everything went into the garbage. Staff were friendly and helpful. Breakfast room very small, overflow outside or back to your room. Pacific Grove: Loved the old the old theatre downtown and were stunned to see and hear a huge number of Herring Gulls that circled the town at sundown. Quite a dramatic effect!! Pacific Grove is a lovely town and we would definitely stay there again. less

Dear Valued Guest,
We are delighted you enjoyed lovely town of Pacific Grove! Such a beautiful town! We hope you enjoyed your stay with us and glad you enjoyed seeing the deer walking around, the surrounding trees, butterflies, and more! Furthermore, we did a full renovation of the property and we apologize if some of it didn't exceed your expectations. We do apologize if our breakfast room is too small, however, there is seating in the gazebo or by the koi pond where you can enjoy your breakfast! We appreciate your comments and we hope that you will come back and visit us again, soon! Thank you.
