“Seven Gables Inn - Amazing!!!!”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

Read all the five star reviews and then double it. That's my opinion of the Seven Gables Inn. It is the perfect spot to stay if you are in the area. The outside grounds are perfectly manicured and the inside is impeccably clean. We took a tour of several rooms and decided to stay in the Fairlawn room. It is small but cozy. The afternoon wine and cheese is elegantly served in the main lobby. The breakfast room is beautiful and our breakfast was divine. I can't wait to go back to this place. It's more then we've ever spent on a hotel, but worth every penny!!

This house, or combination of houses, is beautiful with a beatiful view. Lots of restaurants within walking distance, and the aquarium and Cannery Row are within walking distance as well (just under a mile away). It's right across the street fromt he ocean and Lover's Point beach and park is just a 2 minute walk away. The service was fantastic and we were treated very well, despite being at least a couple generations younger than every other guest. The breakfast was good and the wine and cheese and cookies (4-6 pm) and cookies and milk (8-9 pm) every night were a nice touch. We enjoyed our time there so much we decided to extend our stay for another night. We spent a wonderful first anniversary at Seven Gables, and will definitely be returning in the future.

Room Tip: We like the beach house the best and will stay there in the future. It has the best view and is a l...

This B&B is beyond beautiful. The rooms are gorgeous with amazing views of the ocean and Monterey Bay. The staff is so accommodating and the breakfast, wine/cheese and cookies/milk are a welcome treat. The views are so great that you don't want to leave the room - but do visit Monterey and walk the beach in front of the hotel where you can see sea otters swimming around. We also saw a deer running down the street in front of the hotel! Then we saw him run back the other way with a baby following behind. It's simply a magical place.

Room Tip: All the rooms are beautiful but if you prefer an amazing view, stay in the Main House in either Brea...

Gorgeous property, beautifully decorated. We stayed in the Fairllawn room. It was small, but nice. The bed was wonderful. The sheets were amazing. Best bed ever. Binoculars in every room, and in the living area, so you could take advantage of the ocean front space. The staff was super friendly. Parking is on the street, although they do have a small lot, we never got a space. But street parking very close and easy, even on a weekend. Breakfast was fabulous. We stayed two nights, one morning with a savory option, the next morning, sweet. They have an evening reception with different wines and appetizers, very nice, and tided us over until a later dinner. The have fresh made cookies and milk in the evening. We made it back early enough one night in time for snicker doodles.

If you are interested in experiencing Victorian elegance with a spectacular ocean view than Seven Gables Inn is your answer. This property is one of the best we stayed at in all of our travels. The location is great and every room has a view to the beach and the ocean. The property is pristinely maintained and the staff is friendly and helpful. Every room offers a different experience and décor lots of beautiful leaded glass windows with antique furniture and a wonderful relaxing atmosphere. The beds are really comfortable which makes the experience very relaxing. The Inn is excellently located nearby the Monterey Aquarium, beaches, the 17 mile road and shopping areas. The location has great paths for walking or biking along the coast line. The staff has thought of everything including making sure there is a set of binoculars in every room so that you can enjoy the seals and dolphins frolicking in the water. The main area of the Inn is nicely appointed and allows for afternoon wine and cheese while enjoying the beautiful view. The breakfast every morning was outstanding with a great number of choices and great service. Lots of nice restaurants within walking distance with a variety of choices. Top it all off with cookies and great coffee waiting in the main house in the evening. We had a wonderful time and have decided to make Seven Gables Inn a place to come back every year. We highly recommend the Seven Gables for a wonderful relaxing experience. By the way they clean the windows very often so you always get a perfect view - outstanding.

Room Tip: Every room is outstanding but the Beach House has some of the best views and breakfast is served on...

The premises are beautiful--very clean and very well attended. The breakfast every morning was outstanding and the attention to detail was wonderful. Every morning there were different things to choose from as well as established favorites. Arthur, at the front desk, was especially helpful. We wanted to pack some fragile items to take with us on our journey home and he went out of his way to find boxes for all of them, with a wonderful, cheerful smile, as always..

We recently stayed for the memorial day weekend. What an amazing place. Service was top notch. The Seascape room was comfortable, well furnished and made us feel like royalty.
Morning breakfast was always amazing. Food fresh, tasty, and plentiful. Wine and cheese in the afternoon was something we will remember.
All the guest were amazing. Something about staying in a bed and breakfast that brings out the best in people. We meet people from all over the united states. Many of them were repeat visitors to the Inn.
Above all, the staff was amazing. From the desk, the meals, to the service staff, this is without a doubt the best experience I've had. I am planning on returning simply because of the highly quality and standards of the staff. Above and beyond my expectations.
I could go on for quite a while, but lets sum it up. Amazing staff, room, view, food, and location. What more could a couple ask for!!!!

Room Tip: Almost all rooms have a view of Monterey Bay. Simply choose your price range and you won't be d...
