This was our first stay at the Pacific Grove Inn and were thoroughly impressed with the warm, inviting welcome by the staff. Customary check-in times are at 3 p.m. but we arrived earlier than expected and our room was ready which was quite comfortable and in a quiet location that we requested. Location can't be beat if you wish to... More

Great place, nothing fancy but the location is fantastic! Just 3 minute walk to the beautiful Asilomar beach. The Inn is located on a quiet , woodsy street- very pretty and quiet. Robert was super friendly and helpful. Easy access to Carmel, downtown Pacific Grove and 17 mile drive. Would stay here again!

We've stayed here several times, in fact we find it perfectly located to the ocean, Carmel, Monterey and it's pet friendly. The evening happy hour is a nice touch with wine and goodies. It's a great base for biking the area. They also offer a nice buffet breakfast.

My husband and I just moved to CA from FL 10/2013. We didn't have the funds to fly back to FL for Christmas (over 2K), so we decided to take a road trip over the holidays and SEE California! Our last stop was Pacific Grove. I chose this hotel for its location, pet policy & price. Pros: -This hotel allows... More

We've just returned from a most relaxing stay at the Pacific Gardens Inn. First off, the inn has a stellar location on quiet and rustic Asilomar Boulevard, an easy five minute walk to a very scenic segment of the Pacific coast. Secondly, the staff is extremely attentive to your every need. Each day at 5 p.m., a savory spread of... More

When we first arrived for a 3-night stay, my daughter and I were happy with the wooded atmosphere, small intimate feel, and location. We settled in for a relaxing evening in our room after walking around all day, and things were going well at first. HOWEVER, a large dog started barking in a yard immediately behind our room and KEPT... More

Second visit, will return again if possible. Great location, close to asilomar beach where you can watch the surfers. We also saw a whale this time. Owner/manager and staff very friendly and welcoming. Great closet this time and shower. Plenty of hot water but be conservative. I really like this cozy lodge-like atmosphere over larger hotels. Wifi, kitchenettes. Great visit.

We had a 2 BR room at the Pacific Gardens Inn and found it absolutely delightful. We have stayed at other places in the same area. We like the Asilomar area, which is very quiet and close to Asilomar Beach and the start of 17 Mile Drive, and not heavily trafficked at all, yet somehow only a short drive away... More

What other say is true, it's rustic, comfy and location, location, location. Rooms are clean, staff are amazing and the price and service make this the place you want to be. Robert the owner, if friendly, hands on, gets to know people. You can see he is proud of his business and takes pride. Yes this is not 5 star,... More

I stayed at the Pacific Gardens Inn for a conference that was taking place across the road at Asilomar. The accommodations are on par with the area....rustic and well maintained. The room was quite comfortable. There were minimal signs of wear and tear. The bed was soft and the bathroom was quite clean. I'm ranking it a 3 because I... More
