Oh goodness, I really do not know where to begin....I guess I should start with the fact that I am usually not a big fan of B&B's. A friend and I were traveling to SF with our college age daughters and she suggested this inn. I checked it out online and was absolutely sold and must say EVERYTHING was PERFECT.... More

We had the best time at 7 Gables, once we parked our car, we could just walk to most places. We stayed in the Seascape room, which was beautiful, our room had the most wonderful views of the sunrise and the sights & sounds of the ocean were amazing. The staff help make everyone feel right at home. They thought... More

My husband and I stayed here as part of our 10-year anniversary trip up the coast. The location was far enough away from the touristy areas, but close enough to walk to restaurants and the sites of Monterrey. The staff was helpful, but unobtrusive, and the breakfasts were amazing. The chef even came out to share his recipe for peach... More

This was our third or fourth stay, and this stay was the best, so far... We checked in shortly after they started the wine, cheese, and Hors D'Oeuvres... We chatted with a couple from Modesto, then another couple from Brea, SoCal, USA... By the next Morning, we were talking with a retired rocket scientist, and his wife, who stayed here... More

We were here for a family gathering and it was genuinely excellent. Our family has stayed here many times over the years and each time we have appreciated the finely appointed rooms, the excellent service and the very fine food both at breakfast and in the late afternoons. Our rooms all had a view of one sort or another (but... More

Yes, this is literally the best inn experience we've ever had, and we travel a great deal. The service is top-notch, with a full staff there to meet your every need. Elegance is the feeling this inn exudes. The location can't be beat, as you can cross the street and walk on the path all the way into Monterey and... More

Seven Gables staff make every effort to see that your stay is memorable! From reservations to departure, I can't think of a single thing I'd change. (We did have a balky plumbing device in our room, but that was cared for quickly and pleasantly.) Donna was helpful in a variety of ways, from making (and changing) dinner reservations, to uncorking... More

This is a great place to stay. Across the street from the ocean how much more perfect can that be?.Sit in the gardens, rest, take a deep breath. Enjoy! Extensive breakfast. We found 7 Gables rooms to be extreamly clean. Seems a bit formal for kids.

I cannot see what the Seven Gables could do better! Service was exceptional, particularly Laila in reception - but everyone was unobtrusive, eager to help and seemed genuinely glad to be there. Physically, the whole property is a delight. The expansive views of the bay, of course, but the elegant furnishings and architecture, the astounding cleanliness, and the absolutely charming... More

My husband and I travel to the Pacific Grove area all of the time. We usually stay at the Green Gables, but they were full. We decided to give the Seven Gables Inn another try after a 15 years. It was very lovely. We stayed in the Rocky Shores room with beautiful views of the bay. The wine and cheese... More

We always appreciate our guests writing reviews of their experiences at Seven Gables Inn. These guests stayed in one of our most popular rooms, the Rocky Shores Room at the top of our Beach House building with fabulous views of the ocean. As they expressed, this is a great room and they seem to have enjoyed their stay. We are... More
