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

Nice place, I like the area, woodsy , close to the beach, breakfast was nice along with the wine and cheese at night. The front desk staff were very nice and answered all questions along with mapping out my day trip to big sur. The fireplace in the room was great. The rooms were a little dated but very clean.

Just terrible service!!!!!, the owner was drunk, and he had a very strong smell of weed. <Robert [--]>. Never coming back again. The maids were noisy all over the property speaking a wird language. Lobby was unattended evey time I showed up for things that I needed for the old, rusty, smelly bathroom. I really don't recomend this place.

New receptionist did a great job of welcoming and chatting. I love the convenience of printing a boarding pass from the lobby. And great social at the wine and cheese happy hour in the lobby. As I've said in the past, this is my favorite casual lodging for Monterey peninsula.

Before visiting my sister in Pacific Grove, I asked her where I should stay. As she had visited the area for many years before moving there, she had a pulse on the community. She told me to stay at Pacific Gardens, without hesitation. I stayed at Pacific Gardens for 4 nights in September 2014. The hotel is located in the... More

If it is warm you might be warned there is no air conditioning. Very nice experience otherwise. Close to everything, restaurants and the ocean and just a short drive to Monterey. Fireplace and spa at night

Everything was perfect. The room, with the fireplace, the comfortable beds, the location, the deer roaming outside the door, check-in - just everything! I am glad I found the recommendation for this lovely inn. We are definately planning on returning. Thank You!
