My husband was having surgery in nearby Monterey and since we were from out of the area the doctor wanted us to stay close to the hospital for a few days after his procedure. We had found the Pacific Gardens Inn quite by accident but once we talked to the owner, Robert, and explained our situation he was more than helpful. We knew this was the right place for my husband to recover. The suite we stayed in was roomy and clean. The fireplace made it very cozy. The kitchen was stocked with dishes, wine glasses and cookware. There was everything we needed to be comfortable. The Asilomar State Beach is nearby and there are boardwalks with benches throughout the dunes which allowed us to take walks easily. Another great feature is the nightly 'Happy Hour'...wine and cheese in the lobby and a chance to visit with other guests. I would highly recommend the Pacific Gardens Inn and hope to return for another visit in the near future,

We loved our stay at Pacific Gardens. Having a fireplace in the room was really cozy and romantic. The owner, Robert, made excellent recommendations for restaurants and things to do and was very friendly. We loved the evening "wine and cheese" time in the lobby area. We hope to go back!

You can't beat this hotel for price, location, and friendly staff. We were visiting for a long weekend and found a motel from this web site. However when we got there, the room was small and cramped. It was okay but we quickly started looking for a roomier room. The Pacific Gardens' room was a great size and had a nice working fireplace with real wood! Popcorn and a good assortment of interesting magazines made the room feel like home. The staff couldn't have been friendlier, and the location across the road from Asilomar, the state park, and the ocean was terrific. We hope we can visit again soon.

Having never been to the area we were trying to book at other well known establishments with no success. In the process, Pacific Garden was mentioned as an alternative. From our warm reception upon arrival we knew we had a found the right place for us, and were not disappointed.

Here are some of the reasons we loved our stay. Being run by family and friends, it was more personable than a hotel would be. Staff was knowledgeable of the area, would listen to our requests, and then guided us to great restaurants and places of interest. Internet is available in the lobby or via wireless in your room. From breakfast in the morning to the wine and cheese in the evenings, food was good and interactions with other guests always pleasant. Hot tubs were warm and easily accessible and the cozy fireplace in your room made for great evenings. Then there is Robert, a wonderful host with a great smile who will make you want to come back again soon.

A great place to enjoy your visit to the Monterey Peninsula.

From the cheery wine and appetizers in the evening to the bountiful breakfasts in the morning - surrounded by the natural beauty of the setting, and a friendly, helpful staff - one could not feel more at home.

Our room was large, clean, well-appointed and our picture window offered a view of Mama and Baby deer as we enjoyed our morning coffee. For that second cup, we sat outside admiring the flower
gardens as we planned our day.

Finding this relaxed comfort - convenient to everywhere we wished to visit on the Peninsula - made it our perfect haven.

I've been to PG 40+ times. This was my third visit to the Pacific Gardens Inn, but my first since the new owner, Robert took over. Our mother lives in PG all of her kid's families (17 in the whole group), visited her from out of town to celebrate her 80th birthday.

I can't say enough about how great a job the new owner, Robert did taking care of us! He went above and beyond all of our expectations! The rest of the staff are also very friendly and helpful.

The meeting room was used like it was our personal living room. There were 15+ people in and out of there day & night for four days or so, and we all had a great experience.

I have never had any complaints of any kind at the PGI, unlike many of the other places in PG. I will continue to stay there because I'm convinced that it is the best location for the money spent!

Great place. Nice and quite, hidden in the pines. Quick walk to the beach. The only place I stay when visiting Monterey.
