“So Hospitable and Delicious!”
Reviewed May 19, 2013

The manager was so nice and so were the baked goods! There was a never-ending supply of delicious baked goods (lemon bars and chips with several kinds of dip for tea, snickerdoodles and oatmeal cookies always in the living room, and muffins for breakfast along with frittata with bell peppers and fruit salad). The entire place was beautiful and immaculate. We also enjoyed sitting in the garden. Our room (the Nantucket) was the closest to the breakfast room and kitchen, but since there are another set of doors (which they kept closed) between our room and the other areas, we weren't bothered at all by noise from those areas. The only noise we got was from the church next door, which starts singing very early in the morning, but we had our window open, so it might not be a problem otherwise.

Room Tip: If you are not a very early riser and leave your window open while sleeping, you might want to stay...

The reason why this place doesn't advertise is because it doesn't have to. It gets a lot of repeat customers and the reason that people keep returning is because the breakfasts are great, the hospitality is warm and sincere, high tea with wine and cheese and crackers and fruit is a fantastic idea, and Pacific Grove itself is a charming little town. What else could you ask for?

Room Tip: An ocean view isn't necessary. We stayed in the Garden View room and loved it.

I LOVE THIS PLACE! I have stayed here for years every time I visit Pacific Grove and cannot imagine staying anywhere else. It is just a block from the beach which is perfect. The rooms are always extremely clean and well kept, and the sitting area is warm and inviting. There are homemade cookies available throughout the day, and at 4:30 pm they offer afternoon tea. Breakfast is from 8:30-10:00 and is always a treat. This visit we enjoyed an artichoke and roasted red pepper strata with country potatoes....so delicious!! There were also delicious homemade apricot muffins that were tender and full of flavor. There is a nicely landscaped outdoor area, with a firepit and a waterfall. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast to anyone who is visiting the area...you won't be disappointed!

We stayed at the Old St. Angela 3 nights the end of March. We actually stayed in 3 different rooms. We had reserved the Nantucket for 2 nights, but changed our plans & asked if they had anything for the 3rd night (on Easter weekend). She did have a cancellation so it worked for us. For our first night Diane upgraded us to a larger room on the second floor (the Bayview) and it had a view of the ocean. The Bayview had a fireplace which we did not use. The beds in all 3 rooms were very comfortable with nice quality linens and comforters. Everything was impeccably clean. The Bayview & Nantucket both had jacuzzi tubs, but I could not get the control to function and turn it on. Each room is decorated with a different charming design and color scheme. We got to peep in the Whale Watch room which was my favorite but also the most costly and another room upstairs that was also large and had a view. Our second night was spent in the Nantucket room which is downstairs next to the breakfast area, but we did not hear a sound from the kitchen or any other guests. The Nantucket was a smaller, but we usually go for the economy in our travels as we are out and about so much we don't benefit much from the larger rooms with views, fireplaces, etc. I must say that we will probably splurge & stay in the Whale Watch room next time. It also had a private balcony with seating and a table that looked out to the ocean. Our 3rd night was in the very small Lands End room which opens to the garden. The bath was very tiny with a corner sink located outside the bathroom and only the toilet and shower fit into the actual bathroom. It worked for us, but others might be cramped in here especially if you actually stay and read in your room during the day.

Every breakfast was outstanding. They had homemade yogurt and granola, fresh mixed fruit, homemade muffins, bagels, bread, and English muffins for toasting (with homemade raspberry jam). These were in addition to the entree served each morning. We had croissant french toast with raspberry sauce one morning, and a Mexican stratta and homecooked potatoes another day, followed by the croissant french toast this time with a strawberry sauce on the 3rd day. Breakfast was served in the lovely sunroom room with a view of the garden. It was a little chilly on our trip but one day was warmer and 2 couples ate outside. Every day cookies (2 types) are available, and in the evening when you come in there is a dessert like brownies or lemon squares awaiting you. From 4:30-6:00 it is afternoon tea time with wine and some snacks like cheese and crackers and a Mexican 7 layer dip & another homemade dip with chips. We missed tea time one day when we were down at Big Sur. The garden is lovely with lots of flowers blooming, brick walking paths, and a relaxing waterfall.

Diane was very helpful and pleasant. She seems to love her job, and she adds so many special touches around like the orchids in the living room area and the dining room where tea time is served. There are lots of books to read in the living room with comfortable seating as well as some brochures on local sights. This really felt like a home away from home.

My husband and I always play the name your top 5 things you liked about the trip on the way home from the airport when we return home. On this trip we did Monterey, Carmel,Big Sur, San Francisco, Muir Woods, and Point Reyes Lighthouse. Both of us put staying at the Old St. Angela and walking down on the coastal walk (just a block away) as our # 1 from this trip. We will definitely return to the Old St. Angela Inn.

Room Tip: Rooms listed as small are indeed small. The best rooms do cost more, but they are definitely worth...

Our family truly enjoyed our stay at the Old St. Angela Inn. The Inn has been very well maintained; the rooms were super comfortable. Diane's breakfasts were outstanding with an artichoke frittata the first morning and strawberry croissant french toast the next. No one in our family went hungry. They serve cookies all day, and afternoon wine if you are interested. It was a little chilly while we were there, but we did manage to sit in the gardens one afternoon. Beautiful plantings, a firepit and water garden. The InnKeepers are very gracious.

The Old St Angela Inn is a cozy and charming bed and breakfast. Comfortable and nicely decorated rooms, a wonderful garden, excellent breakfast in the morning. Only a block from the ocean where you can walk along the beautiful rugged coast line. A real gem.

We stayed here for our anniversary in September...total last minute & boy it was awesome the Inn Keepers are so nice & friendly took very good care of us & all the goodies & food were yummy. We had a greaden view room on the bottom floor & it was so nice & cozy. We hung out in the graden by the gas fire pit & just enjoyed the calm quiet morning taking it all in. We were only there for the night but plan to return so.
