“Charming Inn, Great Location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013

Beautifully restored Victorian right on the water in Pacific Grove. Gorgeous views. The staff was friendly and the breakfast was awesome! Try the chesse grits. Easy walking distance to the sites in Monterey.

We dicovered Seven Gables Inn on Yelp, which had high reveiws. My girlfriend and I were celebrating our two year anniversary and wanted to create a memory in a new area. Coming from Fullerton, we relied upon Yelp and Foursquare to plan our trip. From the moment of booking the room, we realized the right choice was made. The super friendly staff was more than accomidating and made our stay as if we were staying with family. Upon our arrival, we realized we had an amazing view of the Ocean, and a nice note from the staff of our Anniversary. The grounds were meticulous maintained, and the inner decor had a very keen eye of detail. We loved the breakfast and the view of "Lovers Point", while eating. We were also able to take advantage of the Wine and Champagne time, which lasted from 4-6, which allowed us to just simply talk and watch the sunset. Lastly, they made homemade cookies and served them with milk from 8-9pm. We also had a nightly turn down service which put chocolates on our pillows for the evening. J.R., the operations manager, also gave great insight for the better resturaunts to dine. Overall, we couldn't think of a better place to have stayed, we highly recommend the Seven Gables Inn.

Room Tip: Not all the rooms come with T.V.'s so if you want one, be sure to ask. It wasn't a problem...

We have stayed at the Seven Gables three times and we are anxious to return as soon as possible. The hospitality and service are superb. The staff makes you feel as if you are the only guest in the Inn. We have stayed in both of the cottages and were extremely pleased with the decor and the cleanliness. This Inn exceeds all of our expectations. The food is fabulous and the servers make you feel like royalty. The grounds and views are spectacular. We cannot wait until we return again.

Room Tip: Jewel cottage has spectacular views and the Sea View cottage is great for privacy with it's own...

My husband and I stayed at the Seven Gables Inn for our Anniversary last year. We were pleasantly surprised by the nice note and ornament left on our bed when we got there. The grounds are so pretty and the room, the Cypress,was very nice with a spectacular view. The inside of the hotel was decorated with antiques and looked amazing at night. they had a great wine & cheese service in the evening and home baked cookies at night, although i wasn't fond of the taste. The location was also great because the ocean is across the street with a path that leads you to cannery row about a mile and a half walk away. The breakfast was better than satisfactory. The people working in the hotel were friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back!

We stayed here in December over Christmas, after returning from our destination wedding in Cabo San Lucas. It was exactly what we needed to unwind and relax after a year of planning our wedding. We were welcomed with a nice note of congratulations with a delicious chocolate bar. This property has breathtaking views from every corner. We enjoyed waking up to gorgeous views from our room every morning. The breakfasts were great as were the afternoon wine tastings and late night cookies. We enjoyed walking to nearby areas like Cannery Row, and local restaurants. The staff here are very friendly and helpful. We love the Pacific Grove area and plan on returning here again.

We visited Pacific Grove and the Seven Gables Inn this past November. I cannot recommend this property enough. The setting is wonderful, the rooms are beautiful, and you will never sleep in a more comfortable bed. We also really enjoyed the breakfasts and the wine in the evenings. The staff was also outstanding.

Room Tip: We stayed in The Breakers - outstanding view.

I stayed here back in 2009 in the Breakers room.. (see review) and was finally able to return again in January of this new year. This time I wanted to try the Gables room, which used to be the play attic. I just loved it! So private, cozy.. just what i needed for my alone time I much wanted. The accommodations, customer service and breakfast buffet are all still top notch.
