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!

Excellent professional service by Robert, the manager. Friendly, too.You can tell he enjoys is work. We saw some deer wandering in the road at least three times-so slow down;)) Also if you walk along the ocean you will see seals sunbathing along the water. Dog-friendly

We booked Pacific Gardens Inn because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor and because it seemed to be a good value. After reading reviews, I expected it to be "rustic," but was disappointed anyway. The rooms are so outdated and need a total overhaul. Wheelbarrows and other broken equipment just sat outside our window the whole time. When we... More

The reason I chose this place is because it is reasonably priced and they accept dogs. As others have said, it is dated but clean. That is the best thing about it. I was given a room (119) attached to the office and next to one of two spas. On a Monday night, there were two parties at the spas... More

We were in the Monterey Bay area for a family reunion. Compared to where the rest of our family stayed, we thought that we had a great value. Dog friendly, continental breakfast, TV, large rooms, coffee maker and a popcorn machine. The property does show its age but it is meticulously taken care of and we ourselves were impress with...

We moved from Houston to the Monterey Bay area a few months ago. Knowing it would take at least a few days to find a house to rent once we got here, we made a three-night reservation at Pacific Gardens Inn in one of their dog-friendly rooms. It was on the second floor, and our big dog couldn't handle the... More

We were going to celebrate my mom's 80th birthday with a big extended family weekend. Robert and staff were wonderful accomodating us ahead of time, being flexible as we weren't sure who all would make it for the weekend. He gave us a great rate, and a conference room as we booked sufficient rooms. The wine and cheese was wonderful,... More

This was a great location for 3 days in Monterey. With a fireplace in every room it made for a comfortable winters stay. The afternoon wine and cheese time in front of a big fire was a big hit with me. It gave me the opportunity to speak with other travellers and proved to be a good source of local... More
