We stayed in Julia's room for three nights. The room was very quiet and comfortable. The ocean view was outstanding. We watched the sea otters and the surfers every day. The Inn is walking distance to the Monterey Aquarium, but we chose to take Uber. Highly recommend the Inn. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area and... More

The Seven Gables Inn has ruined the B&B experience for us. We try to stay at them whenever possible and manage to try a few throughout the year. We have stayed at The Seven Gables during our last three or four visits to Pacific Grove. It isn’t only beautiful, well appointed with breathtaking vistas of Monterey Bay but you are... More

When I visit a coastal town like Pacific Grove, I prefer to stay in a place where I can get a great view of the ocean. Seven Gables is perfect for views. Within one block of Lover’s Point on the Monterey Peninsula, this bed and breakfast has rooms with a variety of ocean views. If you get tired of the... More

View, hospitality, cleanliness, charm -- Seven Gables Inn has it all. When we first got there, I noticed the exterior windows had a bit of dirt and spider webs, but thought, oh, must be that time of year when they let the windows go a bit. Wrong. The full crew of window washers appeared the next morning and our windows... More

We stay for four nights and loved both the Inn and the town. So glad we did not stay in either Carmel or Monterey as PG was easy to walk around and had great restaurants and much less touristy. We walked across the street to Lover's Point each morning with our coffee to watch the sun rise. Breakfast was great... More

If you can afford it for two nights or more, do it! We stay here during the "off" season, which we like because there are no big crowds. This place is fantastic in every way. We will return in the Spring.

We stayed in the Gables room for an anniversary weekend away and it was such a wonderful experience! The staff were so friendly and accommodating. The room was spotless, the view was amazing and the food and service were remarkable! Truly a memorable experience - thank you for making our anniversary so special!

We continue to love this place. The beds are very very comfortable, the breakfast buffet perfect for us and then there's the wine and cheese and visiting time in the later afternoon. It's the only place we stay when in the Monterey area. Having said that, it's good to be aware of some things. With the layout of the buildings,... More

What a cute, romantic spot - perfectly located across from the water. Our first floor room had an ocean view and a VERY comfortable king sized bed.
