There are several reasons that we return to Pacific Gardens Inn when we come to the coast. For one, this inn is a really friendly place to be--Robert and Laura at the desk just exude warmth and welcome and the housekeeping staff is super friendly and efficient, too. The beds are SUPER COMFY and the bedding is just what we... More

This is that perfect blend of location, price, and amenities. It's dog friendly, a big plus for our future visits. And the coffee is always hot and ready to accompany your walks across the road to the Asilomar State conference center. So much natural beauty and a white-sand beach nearly at your door step. The lodge of Asilomar is a... More

I just got back from 3 days in Pacific Grove, CA. Stayed at the Pacific Gardens Inn for the second time. What a wonderful place to relax and bring the dog! Spacious room with a fireplace, all the amenities, friendly proprietor and staff and 2 spas. Happy hour from 5 until 7pm with wine, cheese, crackers and salami in the... More

Often when you re-visit a vacation place you expect that they owners might have made some up-grades or improvements in some way. Not here. Now that is bad and good. They still have the gas fireplaces (with real wood logs furnished) as on your last visit and they still leak at the connections. They still have nice king sized beds... More

Our family of four, including 3 and 5 year old stayed here one night and it was fun like we were camping, but without the sore backs and bugs. We stayed in a room that was meant to accommodate a wheel chair so the bathroom was huge. Was very convenient to bathe the two little ones. I say it was... More

The Pacific Gardens Inn is family run establishment located right across the road from beautiful Asilimar Beach and just a few miles from downtown Pacific Grove and the world famous Monterey Aquarium. The inn is "pet friendly" which means our border collie can also enjoy the area's beautiful beaches. Robert, the owner seems to be always at hand to insure... More

My wife and I just stayed here this past weekend. Very cozy room. Our experience with all the amenities of the Inn are positive. The fireplace in the room was a nice addition. The staff is all very helpful. This is a great place!

My wife and I just completed a 1 week stay at Pacific Gardens which we found to be just perfect for our needs. The atmosphere was comfortable and homey. Robert ran the place with hospitality and generosity of spirit. There was no sense that there was stinting on the extras. The clientele was family and middle aged. This is not... More

This was a fantastic hotel. Very clean, cozy, and excellent location - right next to our favorite beach (Asilomar). The staff was lovely (especially Blanca), the breakfast was delicious, the wine and cheese in the evening was fantastic, the bed was super comfortable, the in-room fire place made the whole weekend very romantic and memorable. I will definitely stay here... More
