We stayed for five days at the end of our stay in California and everything was amazing. Nothing was too much trouble for the staff who always had a smile on their faces. We stayed in Julia which had a wonderful view. We met lovely people who stayed there on a regular basis and it is a place to recommend... More

I wanted my friend to stay in a once in a lifetime place and Seven Gables was it. It is so beautiful inside and out, it is hard to describe. The gardens, the room, the breakfast, the staff all superb. It was the most gorgeous place-my friend actually cried. We stayed in the Breakers room. Stunning. Stay there, you'll never... More

Love everything about this Inn! It is beautiful, clean and charming! The location is perfect…walking distance to restaurants in Pacific Grove and downtown Monterrey, not to mention the gorgeous views! The breakfasts are yummy as well as wine and appetizers in the afternoon and the fresh baked cookies in the evening. Can't wait to come back!

I have been to Seven Gables several times over the years and most every time I have been in the area it is the first place I think of to stay. On this visit, my sister and I stayed in the lovely Jewell Cottage for several days. She unfortunately worked part time, and I enjoyed beautiful March days walking along... More

Beautiful location, lovely hotel, helpful staff. A rare gem, you won't be disappointed. Do reserve early to get the best rooms, with unobstructed views/facing the ocean. Comfy, oversized chairs in front of large pane windows, which open to the crisp ocean breeze. Wine & cheese each afternoon. We will return, highly rec'd.

The rooms are beautiful and spotless and most, if not all, I believe, have views of the Bay. The people who are employed by the Inn are helpful and pleasant. The location is perfect - right on the Bay and about a 2 mile walk into downtown Monterey. And the breakfasts! They are better than they have ever been. There... More

After spending 3 nights in San Francisco rented a car and went on down coast and spent 4 nights here. Beautiful place, fantastic views of Monterey Bay and Great location. Within walking distance of some interesting restaurants and nice path all the way up and around corner for the sunset. Close to the Monterey Aquarium and Cannery row. Very professionally... More

We appreciate the great review by these guests, especially since they stayed with us over 6 months ago. Their comments and recommendations are very kind and they made a special note that there was a diverse group of people staying at the Inn. We wanted to clarify one point in case there was any misperception: our lobby area does close... More

My wife and I stayed at this wonderful B&B on our honeymoon. We started our trip in Napa and drove the PCH down the coast to LA with a few stops along the way... Pacific Grove being one of them. We were VERY glad we did, and only regret not staying longer! The staff was friendly and helpful at check-in...... More

I decided to splurge and spoil myself for my stay in Pacific Grove and it was worth it. The location is great and the views are amazing (I was in the Stevenson room). At night I heard sea lions and in the morning I could otters playing using the binoculars provided. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and the... More

The location of the Inn can simply not be beat. Right at beautiful Lover's Point with a walking/running/biking trail going all along the water, you couldn't stay anywhere more central. Each night we were a 10 minute walk to fabulous restaurants and shops. A quick 5 minute drive to Cannery Row and only about 30 minutes to Carmel by the... More
