“Our Favorite Get Away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

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.

How many time have you stayed here? It only takes one visit and you'll return again and again. So much makes this a special place. There's the history of the home, the magnificent views of Monterey Bay, the lovely gardens, the uniqueness of each room, the people who work there ensuring each moment is the best it can be, the excellent breakfasts, the afternoon social time, and let's not forget the 8:00 PM cookies! Individually, each of these are wonderful, but combined, they make for a little bit of heaven on Earth. Rather the first time or the tenth, one can't wait to get there, always sad to leave, and immediately planning for the next visit. For those reading this who haven't stayed here, you'll think I'm exaggerating; those who have stayed know I'm not.

Room Tip: I've stayed in seven different rooms, each as nice as the other. Each offering something specia...

This review is from our July 2012 visit.

My wife and I were meandering our way up the CA coast along PCH and wanted to stay somewhere nice, different and romantic between LA and SF. The Seven Gables Inn was all that if not more. Beautiful, quaint, clean, quiet, and with outstanding service and a spectacular view of Monterrey Bay.. the platitudes roll off the tongue with no end in sight.

With plenty of restaurants in the area we had no shortage of options. Breakfast was delicious. Our one and only complaint? Were were there only for one night. We will definitely be back the next time we pass through the area.

Room Tip: We stayed in the Breakers Room and loved it!
