For better or worse I rarely write reviews, and I have traveled a LOT. But this place was so lovely and accommodating I have to comment. It was early evening, we decided to stay in the region spur of the moment, and were having a hard time finding a big-dog-friendly place that wasn't sketchy or overpriced. The Pacific Gardens warmly... More

The rooms reminded me of 1980's. Wood fireplace (no instructions on how to use it), tube TV, and "rustic" decor. Large rooms, big window and speedy internet were a plus. Popcorn air popper with bag of kernels was a nice touch. Many of the guest were families with children, but very quiet at night. Easy access to Asilmar Conference Center... More

We stayed at the Pacific Gardens Inn over the New Year weekend. The hotel is beautiful, peaceful. Coming in from the city this is like our paradise. Room is clean, simple and with a real fireplace. You can't find a better price for this:) easy access to the beach, to the Aquarium, Pebble Beach and Carmel. Great and very friendly... More

This inn is awesome-we arrived just in time for wine and cheese- complimentary. Robert our host is so friendly and very knowledgable about the area. A walk on the beach is just across the road. Lots of good restaurants close by. We already booked our next visit- March.

We have stayed here a few times before, and the friendliness and extra touches, really make this Inn a fabulous place to stay! Fireplaces, DVD players, popcorn poppers, continental breakfast and wine, salami, cheese between 5-7. Just a couple of blocks to the beach or the Asilomar Conference center. The noise and the hard beds, however were disappointing.

Just got an email from Robert at Pacific Gardens in because I mistakenly left my dogs bowls there after our stay. So it prompted me to write a review. First of all the staff is super friendly and so was Robert the owner of the inn. As you can tell, they take dogs. My dog happens to be a service... More

We have stayed at Pacific Gardens Inn numerous times. The lodging has always been superb. The owner, Robert, and the staff, particularly Blanca, are consistently there to insure a memorable stay. The rooms are very comfortable, the grounds invite relaxation, and the savory wine and cheese and breakfast offerings, as well as proximity to the beaches make the Pacific Gardens... More

Glad we opted to pay a little extra for a fireplace room on a chilly night in November, and not having a fireplace in our home. It was lovely falling asleep to the warmth and sound of crackling logs. Took a bit of work getting the fire going but we got there in the end (with the help of some... More

It's cozy. The dated decor is comforting. It's safe. It's clean and the rooms with the fireplace are the best. This is a true hidden gem. We've stayed here twice and will stay there anytime we head to the area. It is my wife and my favorite place.

We have, over the past 10 years, stayed at the Pacific Gardens Inn, 2 to 4 visits per year, and keep coming back. Great location on Asilomar Dr, quiet setting, close to the ocean. There are 2 hot tubs, and the evening wine and cheese, and continental breakfast are "homey", as in B&B style. The staff is friendly, and Management... More
