The inn is lovely and the staff very friendly. The inn provides a breakfast and wine hour which are fine but miss just that little extra you desire and expect from an historic B&B. The location is great.

We spent two nights here and found it to be very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and while the room wasn't very large, we weren't spending a lot of time in it anyway. It is not trendy or fancy but rather in the mode of a hotel that is in it's second decade. I think the one thing that... More

The breakfast was excellent. Some decorating touches were above average; but most decorating touches and furnishings were average, much of the room furniture had a 2nd hand appearance. Many aspects of the hotel had a neglected feel. Fire doors above stairways were all improperly held open by old-fashioned doorstops, which would prevent the doors from automatically closing in the event... More

Stayed here two nights in one of the cottages. Very quiet, until the seagulls started up at dawn. My husband found the bed to be unbearable; too hard, while I found it a bit soft. He ended up sleeping on the sofa. The cottage had a bit of a musty smell. Plenty of hot water and good water pressure. The... More

Thank you for your kind words regarding our staff. They love what they do. I am sorry to hear that your husband had a hard time sleeping. We replaced our beds with new pillow top platinum Serta sleepers in September of 2013 which may account for the bed being softer than you expected. If you come and see us again,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in July 2014. This is a very old building by US standards so please don't expect all the modern comforts.

We spent a mother-daughter weekend here and really liked it even though we are not B&B people. It is very large so if you wanted privacy in their sitting and dining room or gardensm that could be accomplished whereas most B&Bs, you have to "congregate". The breakfast was delicious although light. The evening wine reception and cookies were a welcome... More

Pacific Grove is a wonderful place to spend a mother/daughters weekend. There are so many quaint shops, restaurants and of course the beautiful pathway along the ocean. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed your time with us. Thank you for sharing your experience. More

Booked a room for our 27th wedding anniversary. The inn is a cute place with an excellent location - short walk to Lover's point and quaint village. Beautiful patio, large breakfast/lounging area and friendly staff were more of the good points. The staff was very helpful in recommending restaurants and making dinner reservations, providing general information and setting us up... More

I appreciate your honesty and thank you for bringing the food supply issue to my attention. We make sure that our breakfast, pastries and evening snacks are freshly prepared, which can account for some items being limited. I am working with our Chef to better handle this situation to prevent it from recurring during our busy season. Thank you for... More

Warm and friendly historic home away from home. Close to Monterey Aquarium and historic Fisherman's Wharf. Great staff and excellent breakfast in a classic Victorian home. Recommend an upper floor room or one of the enchanting cottages. Very pleasant stay!

I stayed here in February 2013. First of all, Pacific Grove is adorable and this place is within walking distance of "downtown" and Lover's Point. There wasn't much "onsite" parking available but we found free parking on the street so it wasn't really a problem. The front desk staff were very friendly and reminded us that there was wine tasting... More

Stayed for 2 nights as part of a trip along the pacific coast highway. Pacific grove is a great town as it is quiet but with enough restaurants and bars to keep it interesting.
