About

Delightfully situated in the center of Pacific Grove, the Gosby House Inn has been welcoming guests for over 100 years. This cheerful yellow and white Victorian mansion, with its carefully tended gardens and central patio, sets the standard for gracious innkeeping. The Gosby House Inn has 22 individually decorated guest rooms, each more charming than the one before. Many have sitting areas with fireplaces, a private patio entrance or window seat. The Carriage House has two deluxe rooms with a spa tub for two, fireplace and balcony. Many of the recipes in the Four Sisters Inns Cookbook were tested and perfected in the kitchen at the Gosby House Inn. The aroma of baking bread spreads throughout the inn each morning in anticipation of the lavish breakfast to come. Afternoon tea, accompanied by wine and sherry, welcomes you back from a day of exploring. Restaurants, shops and a scenic shoreline-walking route are just a few steps from the Gosby House Inn, the choice for romance on the Monterey Peninsula.

charming B & B

Had a nice stay at this charming B & B


Overnight getaway

4.8 on May 02, 2016

We went for a quick overnight stay at our favorite Pacific Grove B&B. The breakfast was great and so is the staff.


some good, some not so good

3.4 on April 28, 2016

This inn is marketed as a high end bed and breakfast but overall I think it is just OK. My wife and I have stayed at many B&B's over the years. The staff was great and the breakfast was very good. The room had a few problems....the bathroom fan sounded like a diesel truck. This is something that was obviously ignored and not fixed for some time before we got there. The lock/door knob for our room did not give a feeling of security...it was loose and the door could rattle loosely when closed/locked. So it seems there are maintenance issues here that detract from the enjoyability of the inn. I would search for a different place to stay next time.


Great room, fantastic location, good breakfast

We got a great offer, two nights for the price of one night and all my expectations were met. My husband and I had a beautiful master bedroom on the first floor with a small private patio facing the street. It was lovely decorated, very roomy, except for the small bathroom and very clean and airy. Definitely recommend the Inn. The breakfast offered many self serving breakfast dishes and fruits. We parked on the street without any difficulty. We will come back for sure.


Best Birthday Weekend

5 on April 18, 2016

My name is LaShaunta,and I had the pleasure of staying at The Gosby Inn for my 42nd Birthday Weekend. The room was so clean and nice,the staff was friendly,and it was so convenient to walk to nearby restaurants and the beach was located in walking distance. I can't wait to go back. It was the best birthday ever.


Great Place in the middle of town!

Best value in Pacific Grove!

4.8 on April 08, 2016

For the price point, The Gosby House Inn is the best we have found in the Pacific Grove area. There was an ample Happy Hour and a tasty breakfast, and our room was nicely furnished with a very comfortable bed. The staff were very friendly and professional, The only possible negative was we stayed in the Steinbeck room up front in the turret that faced the street, and the street sweepers come out on Tuesday mornings at 445 AM, and loop around again at 530 AM. BUT we stayed Saturday night also and Sunday was whisper quiet. For the price we paid, I am VERY happy and satisfied and we will definitely visit the Gosby next year.


Lovely Place and delicious breakfast!

5 on April 05, 2016

Gosby House Inn is a very central place to stay in the lovely town of Pacific Grove. The front desk person on check-in was great and recommended a few places for us to have dinner etc. The room was beautiful and comfortable with a great view toward the water. The inn is just a quick walk away from the water and the walking around Pacific Grove is perfect.


Don't Go Here (I want it all to myself!)

4.8 on March 28, 2016

Value and excellence from start to finish. Unless you require perfectly level hallways (NOT a feature of this old house) you won't find a place with more charm and quality for a price like this, maybe anywhere.


We will Return.

We had a wonderful stay at this lovely Victorian. The location is great. Felt like we were away from the hubbub of the crowds.
