My wife and I have stayed many many times over the years at Pacific Gardens. Including a 10 day stay last week. Our daughter and family live in Pacific Grove and we always stay at this nice inn. Has an old-time feel but up to date on all factors. Robert, who I think is the manager, good not be more accommodating and that is true of the rest of the staff as well. Can walk to the ocean/beach is less than 5 minutes. Fireplace in the rooms makes it very cozy in the evenings. Continental breakfast is excellent. Bagels, good muffins, great tea selection, etc etc. Not fancy (thank goodness) but darn near perfect.
