Holiday Stay

3.6 on July 08, 2014

We were there the Fourth of July week, when prices are higher. Over all, we love the Gosby House and have stayed at the Four Sisters Inns many times. The staff is always great and professional. The wine and cheese and the breakfast was very good at this Inn.

Nice stay

3.6 on July 02, 2014

Relaxing place to stay. Generally quite a few people about in the common areas of the house, and especially at breakfast time, things were a bit crowded and hectic around the food. Our room on the ground floor was subject to the very noisy plumbing of the neighbors above - a rather unromantic detail.

Always enjoy our stay at the Gosby House!!!!!!!!!!

Love this place!

4.6 on June 29, 2014

This is probably the 4th or 5th time we have chosen to stay at the Gosby house in Pacific Grove. There are lots of B&Bs in the area, but this is one of our favorites. The rooms are nicely arranged with plenty of amenities. And the breakfasts are super!And they run special discounts throughout the year.

Peaceful by the Sea

4.6 on June 29, 2014

We arrived to a beautiful carriage house room, phenomenal service and a quiet idyllic retreat. We loved the peaceful ability to be alone with others. Downtown Pacific Grove is a treasure and Monterey Bay a gift.

Gosby and Golf

5 on June 26, 2014

Gosby House was the first stop on a 6-day getaway for our 40th anniversary, and the second time we have stayed there. We played golf prior to check-in, and settled into a clean, comfortable, pleasantly decorated room. We decided the bottle of champagne in the evening and breakfast in bed the following morning were worth the extra cost, and we weren't disappointed. It's proximity to PG Golf Links makes it a natural whenever we come down to play again, and worth the drive even from Black Horse/Bayonet. Thank you for starting our celebratory week off in such fine fashion. We look forward to being back soon.

Gosby B&B

3.2 on June 26, 2014

Gosby house is a clean and charming B&B in Pacific Grove. Needs a bit of updating in the wallpaper, furniture etc.

Loved it!!

Here for the second time and had a fantastic time.

50th Wedding Anniversary

4.4 on June 20, 2014

We have stayed at the Gosby House numerous times throughout the years. It is our favorite in the Monterey area and has always lived up to our expectations.

Four Sisters Breakfast is Highlight

3.4 on June 14, 2014

We have stayed at a number of Four Sisters Inns over the years and have enjoyed them for their comfort, character, and wonderful breakfasts. As always, breakfast was the highlight. What a beautiful spread of delicious choices. Our bed was comfortable, as always at these inns. I would, however, suggest that this particular inn might benefit from a bit of updating. The aroma from the old sink in the bathroom was strong and sewer-like. Phew!!! I hope that the problem was corrected before the next guest arrived. We enjoy staying at the Four Sisters Inns because they are unique and special. I just hope that they consistently keep the inns updated so that they maintain the level of excellence for which they are known.

First time at Gosby House Inn

3.4 on June 14, 2014

Nice inn, a little on the older side than some of their other properties, but nice location being able to walk to ocean, restaurants, etc.

Great romantic getaway!

3.6 on May 29, 2014

We had such a wonderful experience at Gosby House Inn! The room was great, and we loved the snacks in the afternoon! It was our first stay at a bed and breakfast, and we loved it!

A very pleasant experience

3.8 on May 28, 2014

Our stay at the Gosby House was a last minute decision and we are very glad we stayed. The check in was great and the staff professional and very gracious. Our room was very pleasant and comfortable. The front desk called us to ask if we would like reservations at a local restaurant and they did, which was perfect. Our stay was very nice and positively memorable.

Relaxing B&B

4.2 on May 27, 2014

Welcoming, comfortable and relaxing, this B&B won't disappoint! The arrangement of the common space and evening wine & refreshments provided an atmosphere conducive to relaxation and socializing. Ideal location - walking distance to restaurants and attractions, yet peaceful and relatively quiet.

Last minute delight

4.6 on April 30, 2014

Though we made last minute reservations and arrived late we could not have felt more at home. Well worth a return trip to this lovely spot.

Wonderful experience at Gosby House Inn

4.8 on March 29, 2013

Loved the old-fashioned feel... nice antiques in our bedroom, VERY comfortable mattress. The breakfast is to die for, not to mention the afternoon wine and heavy "snacks" (more like a mini-meal, and delicious). The location on Pacific Grove's main street is very convenient.... walking distance to terrific restaurants, nice shops, and a short stroll to the ocean. We loved it so much we stayed an extra night.

a quick get away

4.2 on March 03, 2013

Great deal for a sweet little inn away from the hustle of Cannery Row. The wine and cheese hour plus breakfast was better than expected and the food was very nice. Staff very helpful and friendly. Only suggestion was the menus of near by restaurants were outdated. The one we chose then walked to was closed due to a fire. Also, the addresses of the restaurants weren't on most menus.

Romantic Getaway

3.6 on April 13, 2012

My husband and I decided to take a romantic getaway trip for our 8 yr. anniv. We chose this B&B because of the reasonable price and the photos online. The room was amazing and the atmosphere was soothing. We stayed one night and really enjoyed it. I do agree that I was under the impression it was run by the owners and not a staff but they were friendly. The park we liked the best was each room had its own bear you could adopt and I felt it was a sweet and romantic gesture to be able to take them home. One negative is the parking. They do not have their own parking so you have to hassle a little. I would stay again.

A great stay at The Gosby House

4.8 on October 24, 2011

Desk staff were very courteous and friendly. Breakfast and afternoon wine & treats were wonderful.

Nice but Not on the Water

3.6 on September 13, 2011

Nice...pacific grove is a cute little downtown. The problem was that I had thought it was on the water down by lover's point. (That b&b is The Three Gables.) But the Gosby Inn is cute in itself and the breakfast was amazing.

Amazing Anniversary

4.4 on August 23, 2011

My sweetheart and I spent our anniversary in the Julia Pratt room. It was a very impressive room, and we enjoyed our stay. The turndown on the bed with the single rose and chocolates were a pleasant surprise. We will stay there again.

The Way to stay in PG

4.8 on July 31, 2011

Our stay in Pacific Grove was very relaxing, but the Gosby House B&B was the crown jewel. We absolutely enjoyed every moment.

Good Location, Nice Place

4.0 on April 12, 2011

My wife and I stayed at the Gosby House for 2 nights for a much needed quick getaway. The staff is friendly and the overall place emits a friendly, elegant, and cozy vibe. The full breakfast was good, and the afternoon wine plus evening sherry set the right mood. The location is great, being walking distance to some of Pacific Grove's finest restaurants and shops. My only issue was the bed: both my wife and I found the bed a bit uncomfortable, so we didn't sleep as well as we expected. Of course, some guests may find the bed to be just perfect, but for us it was too firm and a bit lumpy. All else was great.

Great location and wonderful staff

3.4 on March 26, 2011

This is a beautiful house on a really nice street for walking and shopping. The informal but impressive breakfast gets the day off to a great start. The street is lined with cute shops and very good restaurants (Red House and Favoloro's Big Night Bistro will both surprise you). It's also an easy walk to the aquarium and Cannery Row, and the staff will be happy to give you directions. Highly recommended.

Very Pleasant Stay

4.6 on January 10, 2011

We prefer a bed and breakfast to a hotel, and for good reason. The house was lovely, the staff courteous and friendly, and the food was very good. We also enjoyed our evenings chatting with the other guests in a comfortable setting with a fireplace. The Four Sisters Inns are our favorites.

Great stay at the Gosby House Inn

4.2 on October 04, 2010

My husband and I were very pleased with our stay. When we checked in we received some great tips, including the coastal walk from Petaluma to Monterey and driving the 17-mile drive. We purchased the dining package and enjoyed a very good meal at Fandango. We were in Room 13. It's right off the lobby/dining room which probably scares some folks away, but there is a double set of doors which blocks any sound. We thought noise might be a problem, but it wasn't at all. It has a nice little private balcony with a porch swing that we enjoyed. Breakfast was full and delicious, and we received more great local tips when other guests joined us at our table (driving Big Sur and a snack at Post Ranch Inn)! We would recommend Gosby House to friends and visit again, for sure.

Pacific Grove in January

4.6 on August 23, 2010

My wife and I have spent the last six or seven or eight January's at the Gosby House in Pacific Grove. This last January we spent time in three different rooms each very comfortable. Each morning after breakfast we take a long walk along the ocean about three blocks from the Inn. The biggest decison we make all day is which way do we go today, left or right. Left is definitely better with views of the ocean waves crashing along the rocky coast. The weather has never been a problem for us as we always dress in layers for our walks. The breaksfast each morning is always filling. The one thing I would like to see added to the menu is breakfast meat such as bacon, sausage, etc. Another benefit of visiting in January is the specials the Inn offers. Two nights for the price of one brings us back each year. Also the tourist season is mostly at a standstill and walking or driving to the many dining options is never a problem. The Monterey area offers many things to do for visitors of all ages from the Aquarium, to golf, sightseeing, the 17 Mile Drive, endless shopping and so much more. We have already booked our reservations for January 2011. Be sure to try the Fish Hopper restaurant on Cannery Row. Wonderful meals

birthday get away

3.4 on May 31, 2010

My boyfriend and I stayed there the last weekend in May for my birthday. It was very nice and quite. The room was comfortable and there was plenty to do in the area. I loved the jetted spa tub but only thought it would've been a lot bigger. I would go there again.

Wonderful B&B!

3.4 on May 21, 2010

Wonderful B & B! Within walking distance to great restuarants and quaint shops. The breakfast was delicious and the service was very friendly. Parking is on the street but plentiful.

Worth staying

3.6 on March 22, 2010

Very fine B & B. It is in a nice location with many fine restaurants within walking distance.We would certainly stay again.

absolutely perfect.

4.8 on October 30, 2009

my boyfriend and i stayed two nights in #19 farley. we both loved it so much! the breakfast TOTALLY exceded our expectations. it was different each day. there was an egg cassarole/quiche, all kinds of breads, cereals, oatmeal, and more. the room was great, except one bathtub jet rattled. but everything else was great! i even told the desk that we were staying for his bday and they left balloons and a card in the room for him! super nice and accomodating. definitely will be back and will be trying other Four Sisters inns! highly recommend!


4.4 on October 07, 2009

I spent two nights in the main house, and found it very nice, Although run buy employees, the personal service provided, made you believe they were the owners. Breakfast was above average and very nice room and ineterior spaces to socialize, and garden as well. The only intial negative was the on street parking, but that proved not to be problem, as you could park right in fron of the B & B. I made one unusual request and it was attended to promptly and efficiently. Monteray also was a nice place to stay in with numerous resturants and shops.

Beautiful Stay

4.0 on March 24, 2009

We stayed here for two nights a few days after Christmas and it was wonderful. The house is beautiful and the area was fantastic. So much to do and see. We stayed in the carriage house and it was so cozy and romantic with the fireplace and jet tub. The bathroom was my favorite part! We also had a wonderful view off the balcony of monterey bay. Would definately stay here again. Highly recommend it!

What a charming place

4.0 on June 12, 2008

My Husband took me here for my birthday four years ago (before we were married). This year we will be returning to celebrate our one year anniversary. The location is perfect, it is quite and relaxing. A perfect place to cozy up with your loved one.

Didn't want to leave

4.8 on July 13, 2007

My husband and I stayed in room 22 in the carriage house, and we have both come to the mutual conclusion that we will definitely stay there again and we highly recommend it. The staff was very polite and friendly, the breakfast in bed is fantastic, and the room was splendid. At night we sat by our fireplace together. In the morning you have a choice of coffee houses to choose from and it's a great location. The Aquarium is just down the street along with walk along shopping and great resturants. YOU HAVE TO STAY HERE! We LOVED it!!
