Imagine having an unobstructed view of the bay and whale watching from your window. (Rocky Shores Room).Then being able to walk or bike for miles along the coast. Then walk downtown and eat at first class restaurants. End the day sleeping in one of the most comfortable beds ever and begin the next day with a great breakfast. This B&B... More

This was our first stay at the Seven Gables and we will definitely return on a regular basis. It exceeded our expectations. The staff was professional and efficient. Our room was tastefully decorated and was very comfortable. Since it is directly across the street from the coastal walking path, we had an amazing view of Monterey Bay from our room... More

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.
