We stayed in one of the suites on the second floor of the carriage house. The room was very spacious with a comfortable king beg, jetted tub, and fireplace. We even had a small balcony with a view of the ocean. We availed ourselves of he wine and cheese in the afternoon--a nice time to relax after being out all day. The breakfast was delicious. It would have been nice to have a greater day-to-day variation. The baked goods were delicious.

The one nit was that the hot water failed on our last morning (Sunday). It didn't happen any other day, so maybe it was just that everyone was getting ready at once.

A very relaxing weekend in a beautiful house, and we would definitely think of coming again.

After spending 4 disappointing nights at the Inn of Sonoma sister property we were concerned about what we would find here. Fortunately the Green Gables Inn restored the tarnished reputation of the Four Sisters. We were greeted by Carla who is an absolute treasure and makes the place so welcoming. She came out to direct our parking (there is no parking lot). The main house seating has great ocean views and a nice place to relax. The afternoon wine is served generously in carafes (not tiny plastic cups), the cheese is accompanied by some nuts. The morning breakfast was fresh and brought out in an insulated picnic basket with a thermal coffee carafe as well. The partial ocean views from the carriage house rooms is lovely. Outdoor seats could use cushions. The upstairs rooms 9&10 of the carriage house get very hot and there is no AC. It is not as nice as the Blue Latern Inn by the four sisters in Dana Point but we would be happy to be here again.

Found this quirky Inn at Pacific Grove by accident as we drove through Monterey Bay. The inn keeper Ivy was a great character and made us feel so welcome. When we arrived we were shown into the dining/ sitting room where we were able to have complimentary wine and appetisers. Once that was finished cookies were put out for us to help ourselves. Complimentary coffee was available. The room we had was small but so quaint and charming. We had to share a bathroom but that was no problem. Robes were available and the bathroom was next door to our room. A turn down service was offered free of charge. The bed was very comfortable. We had partial ocean view. A lovely area and would definitely recommend this.

We have driven by the Gables for many years, always saying we need to stay there, well this week we got the chance as we had to leave another establisment that just did not work out, We booked a room and headed over to check in about 4, a cheerful lady met us at the check in counter thats back inside a bit, she quickly got us in, gave us our keys and walked us to the Carriage house which is behind the main house, Room was clean, roomy and the bed was fantastic for our taste, Wine and cheese is served in the afternoon and was no problem as they keep the stock rotating till it closes, Walking in the main building you can sit in one of 2 large rooms and look right out on the bay across the street, it really is tranquil. In the morning breakfast is served in one of the front rooms, and there is enough selection to have a nice start to your day. There is a self serve icebox stocked with sparkling water and soda that you can come use anytime. I really would have liked to spend a night in the main hose, but the one room that had a private bath was rented, the rooms upstairs are really cool, vintage look with all new fresh beds and great views, but be aware they use a common bathroom thats on the same floor, I could not talk my better half into that so didn't get a chance to see how that works with 3 or 4 rooms on that floor. One thing I have found at B&Bs is you usually meet some real nice couples and mutual respect probably makes the shower issue not a big deal. There is biking and a very well groomed pathway that will take you down to Montereys cannery row and the aquarium walking in about 10 to 15 minutes, it is not lit so either carry a flashlight or plan to be back by sundown because its very dark on the path at night. Parking is on the street for the most part, but there is one general parking and one handicap parking between the house and the carriage house. Our stay was very enjoyable, all the staff was wonderful , we would stay here anytime without hesitation and look forward to coming back in the new year.

We have stayed here a few times, and it is always a wonderful experience. In August 2020, hotels are really challenged to stay open and maintain the quality of their services. Green Gables is handling the situation really well. In particular, they provide an in-room breakfast basket, delivered to the door between 8 and 10. They also provide individual wine and cheese mini picnics for each guest room in the afternoon.

As usual the rooms are very clean and beautifully furnished. This time we stayed in the Gable room and really enjoyed the armchair view of the ocean. We will be back.

We had a wonderful time relaxing at this lovely B&B over Labor Day weekend. Many similar inns have gone away from serving breakfast and wine/cheese apps during this challenging time, but the Four Sisters finds a way to provide everything you want and more in a safe manner to add that special touch to your getaway.

The hospitality of the staff was absolutely 5+ stars and the Lacey Suite was a true treat with it's enormous space and jacuzzi tub. We were gifted this experience from my mother-in-law who has been very excited for us to experience everything a Four Sisters Inn has to offer.

You exceeded our expectations - we are loyal for life and look forward to our next stay. Thank you for making the weekend special and safe during this difficult time. You are doing everything right!

We spent a wonderful three nights at Green Gables. The accommodations they have made for COVID-19 made the stay safe but still personable. From a friendly safe check in to the hot delicious breakfast made us feel pampered. We enjoyed the wine and cheese to go and the delicious chocolate chip cookies. This is a great location and right across from the ocean. We could hear the waves as we slept at night.

Green Gabes Inn is ideally located on Ocean View Blvd in walking distance to the Aquarium, shops and restaurants. Our room (9) had a lovely, partial bay view. Up a steep hill, followed by an outdoor staircase, the room was quite large, had a gas-burning fireplace (which we used every evening), a very comfortable bed and equally comfortable pillows. The twin-sink bathroom was excellent, with a jetted tub and separate shower. B'fast was fine though not special. Staff was friendly and unobtrusive. We'd be happy to stay here again.

We very much enjoyed our stay at this beautiful, picturesque inn, with a room with a view on the ocean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It was nice to have our home made breakfast delivered to our room. The room and bathroom are charming and quaint - it would be great to add a heater in the bathroom (you can ask for one though). The inn is ideally located, close to the coastal trail as well as Cannery Row and the aquarium.

Quaint buildings and furnishings. Our room was very cold when we arrived in the evening but soon warmed up with the heating. The lovely lounge and eating area were well decorated with calming music and lovely ocean views. A fabulous fresh breakfast was presented well, with the main offerings changing each of the three mornings we were there. Generous wine and nibbles were enjoyed in the late afternoon.

Answer from
Depends on what time of summer. Early to mid summer is normally cooler. Sept/Oct gets a little warmer. The average temp. history last year was about 73-75 for highs and upper 50's to low 60's for lows. There can be that rare hot day of maybe 80ish, but not normal. As for fans, I dont know. Never needed them. I know the main house does not have A/C, I dont know about the back house (but I doubt it). Your best bet is to call them and see if they have them. Hope that helps.
