Clearly not many reviewers have visited decent inns worldwide because this is not one...rooms are tiny (we stayed in the Lover's Point room advertised with a view if you get up on a chair perhaps and ignore the street and traffic and watch overhead towards the sea) and comfortable once in bed...that's it. Beds are on the small side. Bathroom... More

We only spent one night....but would gladly have spent several more! From the warm welcome, the Wine happy hours, sumptuous breakfast, the beautiful accomdations, friendly guests and to the outstanding view, every minute was well spent and worth every penny. There is a nice park and walk way across the street and only a 3 block walk up to down... More

This is one of the best country inns we have visited through our travels in Canada, USA, Europe and Asia. The location is simply amazing with spectacular view of Monterey Bay. This half an acre, 25-room property sits in a quiet residential neighbourhood by the waterfront. The coastal walking trail is just across the street and it leads up to... More

I first saw this Inn when I was driving around Monterey with a girl friend and I made her stop so we could get a better look. We were graciously offered a tour by the owners when we stopped in to ask more about this beautiful destination, and I knew then that I would be returning with my husband for... More

My wife and I have been meaning to drive up the California coast from Orange County to see Big Sur and the Monterey Peninsula for some time, and I finally decided that her birthday was the perfect excuse to get away and to do it right. I was originally considering hotels in Big Sur itself, but they didn't seem to... More

The property of Seven Gables is amazing - gorgeous flowers, beautiful landscaping, and of course the location does not get any better being right on the bay! The room had everything you could need (water, granola bars, glasses, wine opener, bathroom toiletries, tour books and maps, robes) - the bathroom was very nice and clean and well stocked with plenty...

Wonderful b and b experience. We have stayed here three times and are never disappointed. We took my parents and stayed in the 2 bedroom carriage house behind the main house on our trip last summer and it was lovely. This is the vacation in itself. Seven gables was booked full on our whale watching trip in march and we... More

Away from the hurly burly and razzmatazz of Monterey but close enough to walk easily to the Aquarium, you will find the Seven Gables located on the most picturesque spot on the coast. Each room has a fantastic view of this wonderful coastline: we stayed in the Cypress and it has a full panoramic view. Nearby there are beautiful walks,... More

This was our second visit and it was all about being spoiled, and so we were. Splurged on "Breakers", it defines elegance. Slightly low ceiling in part of bathroom barely qualifies as a minor inconvenience. Loved the chandelier over the sitting area looking out to Monterey Bay and otters playing just off-shore. Glad the room came with binos. A little... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Circa 1886. Imagine the picturesque and romantic setting of Seven Gables Inn in Pacific Grove, California with waves crashing along the rocky shoreline of the Pacific Ocean. Sea otters and whales are viewed regularly from this elegant inn. Sunsets accent the surrounding mountains. The natural beauty is complemented by a selection of comfortable rooms, all with ocean views, in a cluster of seven historic buildings. Stay in the three-story 1886 Main House, Beach House, Guest House, one of the garden cottages or the private and spacious Jewell Cottage or Sea View Cottage suites. Savor a bountiful breakfast in the oceanfront dining room and gather for afternoon wine and cheese featuring Monterey County wineries. Munch on homemade cookies served with milk in the evening. Outstanding service and hospitality make Seven Gables Inn an especially delightful retreat. ... more   less
