Everything was great except the BEES that got in our window by the back of our room. Their was a bee box at the house next door, by our window. We loved the area and all it had to offer as well as our lovely hotel by the sea. It was a beautiful spot on the coast and the weather... More

What a great place for my wife and I to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. This beautiful 1880's Victorian B&B overlooks a beautiful stretch of the coastline of Monterey Bay just a few blocks south of the Monterey Aquarium. Our stay was enhanced by the friendly, attentive staff, the great wine, cheese & snacks in the late afternoon plus a... More

We have stayed in other places in Pacific Grove the last couple of years and chose to return to the Green Gables Inn because of their location by the ocean. Our room on the upper floor had a musty smell, but it was quite comfortable (with a nice, big window seat and good shower). We enjoyed spending some time in... More

The carriage house annex probably built in the 1950s or 1960s feels like a covered up motel. The room we stayed in had some furniture features common to the main house but the overall room simply lacked a Victorian feel. The buffet breakfast was simple not the special experience you enjoyed in some less corporate bed and breakfasts.

Enjoyed the location and warm feeling this venue has. The breakfast was very tasty. The staff was very helpful. On Monday the town has a wonderful little farmer's market down the road. I can't wait to return. ♡

Wonderful B&B within walking-distance of the tourist area of Cannery Row in Monterey. Easy access to Carmel-by-the-Sea by car; as well as the 17 Mile Drive - which takes you through Pebbel Beach, past some amazing homes and outstanding coastal views. Also, please keep the Green Gables in mind as a good location if planning a day trip to Big... More

Nice rooms, good service, wonderful afternoon wine and appetizers. Close enough to walk to a great restaurant. Street parking, but availability OK. First room had nice view of water. Had to change rooms because of availability and second room the view was not as good.

We have been loyal Four Sisters customers for many years, and usually stay at the Gosby House when in town, but it was full this time. We had stayed at the Green Gables many years ago but were avoiding it due to the higher prices and bad experience with an arrogant clerk back then. We were pleased to see this... More

What a delightful, delicious and romantic retreat in the middle of Monterey. We chose Green Gables for its location and romantic potential and did it live up to and far exceed our expectation. Our gables room overlooked the ocean in sheer pleasure. Of the 4 days we stayed the window remained open the whole time. Sleep or awake the sound... More

This was a nice location with good views out to the bay, conveniently located near to Cannery Row. Staff was pleasant and the rooms were nicely appointed. However, for the price, we thought that rooms should have been cleaner and that the breakfasts should have had more variety. We are in the area frequently and are comparing our experience to...
