Pacific Grove Plaza
Ranked #12 of 17 Hotels in Pacific Grove
Reviewed 6 March 2016

While the resort is located in a plaza that holds a restaurant and other businesses, it does have a secure garage below the building just for the resort, and is decorated with maritime themed walls in the garage and elevator room. There are coin-operated laundry machines, book exchange, restaurant menus, board games, and secure entrances to the rooms. Our room overlooked the front, main street area, and wasn't really all that disturbed by outside noises, but we were there during the winter. I imagine that the street noises would be more disturbing in the popular seasons. However, we would go there again as it is located near the Monterrey Aquarium, restaurants, beach walks, and is so roomy and comfortable as a unit. We were very impressed as a timeshare b/c they have not only kept it up, but have nice firm seat cushions and mattress, something not guaranteed at many we have stayed at.

Room Tip: facing away from the street towards the ocean would be best, corner units are nicely lit with lots o...

The condo was huge!!! It had all of the amenities that we need it and more! Great location, clean and super spacious 2 bedroom condo that it is great for an adult getaway or a family vacation and the manager Kim Poulin is truly the best. She is very knowledgeable and friendly and made our stay a great experience. We will definitely recommend the PG Plaza to all our friends.

This place is a time share that are large condos you can stay at. Good for families, walk downtown, and in between Monterey and Pebble Beach. Nice place to relax at even walk to movie theatre. Small town charm.

We needed a place to house some spill over guests for a week.
This hotel is close to our house and they had a unit large enough for 6.

The common areas are dimly lit and the carpets a little outdated & worn.

The rooms were clean, but like the common areas, they are dimly lit. The florescent lighting does not provide enough light to even read by. That forced us to open all of the draperies - losing privacy!

Some of the fit and finish of the interior leaves something to be desired - door trim, water stains on the ceiling, gaps around the bathroom venting, etc.

The largest unit C12, is a two-story, two bedroom/3 bath that sleeps six. The kitchen was found to be well stocked for preparing most meals. A Nob Hill Grocery is within walking distance (couple of miles) in Monterey, as is the Safeway in PG.

The unit was quiet and the street noise only heard a few times. The underground parking garage is for guests only, and is very secure. The units did not have a washer/dryer within the unit, though there is a laundry room in the hotel.

UNIT C12 is the largest of their units. Both upstairs bedroom shave private baths. One has a king bed & the other 2 twins. Plenty of room for people to sleep on the floors. Huge bedrooms!

Room Tip: UNIT C12 is the largest of their units. Both upstairs bedroom shave private baths. One has a king...

My husband and I have been timeshare owners at the Plaza for 30 years. We started with one week and now visit five weeks a year. This review will be somewhat different from the other five star reviews so I hope it will give you a unique look at our home away from home. As stated by other reviewers...... The units are very large and beautiful. You don't need to bring a thing with you . We have NEVER found our place anything less than immaculate . We hold our family reunions there every year. Are there units that are noisier than others ? Yes.......you are in the center of this quaint town and should expect some activity. Sometimes the sounds of live music.....sometimes the sound of laughter of people walking the streets in the evening. The wonderful aromas from the many great restaurants fill the air. There are many many places to eat just steps away from the Plaza. If you feel like staying in for the day you can always order from the restaurant downstairs and run down to pick up your order. The food is excellent and you feel like you are among friends and you are . The staff and management at the Plaza are exceptional. We are proud to be part of the Pacific Grove Plaza family. Come and visit. You will love our five star home !

Room Tip: Rely on the staff for guidance
