Verified Reviews of Lighthouse Lodge & Cottages

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Troubles at Check In."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
The location of this establishment is lovely. The accommodations were at one time very nice, but the rooms and cabins are not being upkept. paint coming off the trip, dirty dirty carpets, ruined exterior deck carpets, slippery areas when rained on. At check in, we found that the online booking company had made two reservations for me (one person). It was IMPOSSIBLE to fix it. I spent hours on the phone and once in my room to try to fix the problem. I had to call my credit card to get involved. Though the check in crew tried to help, they were unable to fix it. This is unacceptable. They "upgraded" my room and didn't charge for my pet, but I was so frustrated by then that it didn't help. Check in and online booking issues need to be addressed at the hotel's expense, not the customer. I won't return and I will be a whole lot more careful if I EVER book online again.

"Disappointing, overpriced, false advertising."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Terribly overpriced, no hot breakfast as advertised, no wine and cheese social hour, pool was closed. Spider webs and spiders everywhere. Lamps didn't work and fans didn't work, windows would not open. For the amount of money spent, we should have been in a Hilton Hotel. Never will we stay here again.

"Had a great experience after arriving."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Dump Charged us three times for one room. Spent a great deal of time getting this straightened out. Once we arrived, your manager did everything he could to make up for the blunder. We were very satisfied and will come back without using

"Dirty walls, cobwebs on the ceiling. Patio windows, handrails were filthy, room smelled unclean."
Overall Score2.0/ 5
Although the setting was perfect, I am not sure if we'll be staying at the lighthouse again. We don't think pets should be allowed and hopefully we weren't placed in a room where pets are usually allowed, it would explain the faint, unpleasant odor if we were.

"Needs Upgrade"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The room was clean and the staff were friendly and professional. But there were issues. The WiFi had a bad SSL certificate and did not work with Android devices. The TV did not have access to on demand movies and both its image and audio were poor. The "breakfast" was a ridiculous bag of barely edible stuff. The bed was comfortable but the bedding was minimal thread count, almost burlap and the contour sheet came undone on all four corners. We had stayed here four years earlier and our impression was the place has gone downhill. We'll look elsewhere for our next Monterey visit.

"Great location, friendly staff."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
We love the Lighhouse Lodge, we have stayed there many times over the last 20 years or so. We have watched it change, some for the worse (2008) and most for the better (today with newer ownership) The location of this property is fantastic. Its just five walking minutes from Asilamar Beach. One of the prettiest coast lines in the world. Its less than a mile from Pacific Grove's downtown, filled with great food and shopping. The hotel room has been updated recently with new paint, flooring and furniture. It was very comfortable and we loved the jetted tub in the Junior Suite, which we were upgraded into for free when they found out it was our 22 wedding anniversary. With the room comes a complimentary breakfast, chef prepared. Just remember, this property is older (quaint) and sits almost directly on the water, so it's tired. But we love it and its patina. We will stay there again, for sure.
