It was located in a quiet but part of town. We walked to the ocean, we walked to the restaurant and parking was easy at the Inn. The staff was very friendly and made our stay perfect. Happy hour was perfect touch before dinner. Our room was perfect and breakfast was great! Highly recommend!!

This is a lovely old mansion that has been converted. Our room was small but very nice. The staff was great and very friendly/helpful. The breakfast and evening fare were buffet style and casual. Probably 10 or more rooms, so there are many guests to enjoy, if you're so inclined. Could walk all around the village and to the ocean... More

The Gosby is ideally located in the quieter, less touristy part of the Monterey peninsula. Walking distance to many dining options and easy y drive to Big Sur coast or Salinas Valley wineries. Attentive staff always able to accommodate.

We had a relaxing stay at the Gosby House Inn! Pacific Grove is only a 15 minute drive from Carmel-by-the-Sea and is on the ocean. (It's also close to several golf courses.) This B&B has some nice features: large rooms with a sitting area and fire place, complimentary snacks and wine, and breakfast. A huge selling feature here is that... More

The Gosby House was built as a boarding house and has always been a version of that. Therefore, you really have rooms that are set up nicely. If those walls could talk! All the staff here are attentive and helpful, they truly listen and have an excellent knowledge of the immediate and surrounding area. They truly make your stay remarkable.... More

Very clean, nice setting with a wonderful breakfast, afternoon wine and treats and let's not forget the cake and cookies available in the evening. Coffee and tea, (sodas on request) are also always available. They brought a fresh rose and chocolates at 6:30pm when they turned down the bed. The location was perfect and the ocean was a short walk.... More

This a house full of old world character and like all old buildings there are pros and cons. Pros: Both the bedrooms and shared living areas are charming. Breakfast is very good and includes fresh fruit, a hot dish and warm fresh home made muffins. The highlight for us was evening happy hour with complimentary wine and simple finger food.... More

Room #17 on the ground floor with a splendid garden view was delightful. Customer service was excellent enabling an early check in. The room was clean and well lit, with a comforrtable bed, armoir, small TV and roomy bathroom. Breakfast had multiple choices and suprising extras, such as availability of almond milk for those who don't eat dairy products. On... More

My wife and I recently vacationed for the July 4th weekend in Pacific Grove and having never stayed at a Bed & Breakfast before decided to try it. Having researched several B&B options, we decided upon the Gosby House, which had generally good ratings. The Gosby House is located right in downtown Pacific Grove, which is a very quaint and...

Another wonderful stay. Comfortable and quiet room, this time in Lovers Point. Lovely afternoon wine and appetizer as well as delicious breakfast. Excellent service. Loved walking in morning a few blocks down to Bay as well as walking around the neighborhood with historic buildings. Convenient location for both Carmel and Monterey.
