Love it where it’s right next to the beach. Awesome view. Love the rooms with the fireplace and jacuzzi.

My mother and I absolutely loved our stay at the Green Gables Inn. The location is perfect - beautiful ocean views, walking distance from Cannery Row, the aquarium, and in the other direction Lover's Point. The breakfast in the morning and wine + hors d'oeurves were fantastic. The fresh cookies, tea, and coffee at all times were the perfect cozy touch. We will definitely be coming back soon. :)

We stayed at the B&B for one night, and it was a grand time. The location is the best feature of the property. There is also much charm to the building overall. When we are passing through, we will be sure to make this a place to stay again.

We stayed for a special 3-days. We loved staying at Green Gables. We were walking distance from the Monterey Aquarium, shops and restaurants, but what we loved the most was being able to see and hear the sounds of the bay from our room. Sea Otters, Seals, many seabirds and the sounds of the waves. I love the smell of the kelp! It's the smell of the sea! We really enjoyed the fresh fruit, baked goods and entrees at breakfast too! Delicious! I would have given a 5 for the room, we just had one constructive criticism. Upon entering the room each time there was a bitter or pungent smell. I encourage GG to investigate hat. Otherwise, everything met or exceeded our expectations. We only wish we could have stayed longer... next time we will!

We really enjoyed celebrating two special birthdays at the Green Gables. Weather was great so we could sit in the window watching the sea life - saw whales, otters, and sea lions. Room was very comfortable, staff was quite nice and helpful when we needed anything. Parking is not great (have to park on the street except for one handicap spot) but the location is super.

The Green Gables is a perfect setting for a relaxing vacation getaway - our room had a wonderful view of the ocean, and this inn is in an excellent location for access to hiking, running, kayaking, etc. You won't be disappointed if you stay here.

Enjoyed a night in this beautiful inn with my college daughter. We were exploring California from LA to Yosemite to Monterey to LA. The inn was charming. Service relaxed and welcoming. We had everything we needed.in this beautiful setting. The location was wonderful. Beds could use a mattress topper and towels need some upgrading but overall was wonderful.

Lovely inn and the location just can't be beat. We thoroughly enjoyed our three day stay and are looking forward to another visit. Green Gables is a lovely old home, with some very modern amenities (the bathroom was well equipped and relaxing). The service was excellent, they are efficient and eager to please. Breakfast had something for each of us, but frankly almost anything would taste good when you have that view! We walked everywhere we wanted to go (we loved the trolley service from the Aquarium), then came back in the afternoon and enjoyed the wine and cheese service. Our room was in the carriage house, on the third floor, which is not a climb for the unfit, but the view made it worth the effort. The very large seagulls crash landing on the roof at 5:30AM was disconcerting at first, but tolerable once you figure out what it is. A lovely way to spend our "birthday week" (they had balloons in our room!) and we certainly plan to do so again.
4.6 on July 19, 2017
The green gables inn is quite enchanting. It overlooks the ocean. It is elegant and feels like stepping back in time. The only negative is the wine is really bad/cheap during the wine and apps hour. However, this has been consistent at all of the sisters inns.
4.6 on July 17, 2017
Had the opportunity to stay on a Saturday night and this property could not be any more charming. Located across from the bay, the Green Gables had the location nailed. With the ocean and walking paths across the street and lots of dining options nearby, this site is perfect for a stay in Monterey or Pacific Beach. Decorated in turn of the century style, this place is great on the visuals. The check in was quick and the young lady could not have been more kind or professional. She offered to help with our luggage and gave us a tour of the property. She gave us the history of the house and let us know the time for breakfast. Breakfast was served in a beautiful dining room and seating offers views of the bay. Breakfast itself was disappointing, the only disappointment of the trip. Breakfast was cereals, breads, fruit with typical breakfast beverages offered. Only protein was boiled eggs. At the last Four Sisters we stayed at the had Eggs Benedict and the one before that, eggs and bacon. We ended up at McDonald's as we had a 6 hour drive. I would stay here but there are several more Four Sister Inns that we want to try.So maybe after that. The Four Sisters Inns are always staffed with great people and charming properties in great locales. Worth a visit.

We wanted to do something special for our 48th wedding anniversary and the Green Gables was the perfect choice. We stayed in room 10 on the third floor of the carriage house and had a great view of the ocean and sea life. It is a mini suite complete with a small deck for viewing the ocean, firelpace, Jacuzzi tub, sitting area and a king bed...very quiet and peaceful. The staff was very friendly and helpful, made reservations for us for dinner at several non tourist places that were excellent. The Inn itself is well appointed, clean and inviting. It is across the street from a wonderful pedestrian pathway that runs for miles so you can observe the ocean and sea life up close and sit on a beach without hundreds of people stepping all over you. It is a short walk to the aquarium and the fisherman's wharf area. Recommend Green Gables Inn highly !! highly
4.6 on June 07, 2017
Nice quiet location by the sea.
5 on June 02, 2017
the inn is perfectly situated. It is a short walk to the aquarium and is across the street from an absolutely wonderful shoreline pathway that stretches for as far as you would want to walk. We found several beaches with no one else on them and just sat in the sand about 10 feet from the lapping ocean. the staff is great and very helpful recommending wonderful places for dinner. the cookies and coffee all day and cheese and crackers and wine were very welcome in the magnificent sitting rooms; the breakfast was wonderful and for a small fee they will bring it to your room . we stayed in room 10 in the carriage house that has a wonderful (partial) ocean view with a small deck to enjoy your wine and cheese while watching the pelicans and otters. Our room was a mini suite complete with fireplace, mini fridge, sitting area, Jacuzzi tub, separate shower, king bed. recommend highly !!

(The "outstanding" button did not work, unfortunately.) I love this place so much, I want to take it home with me! So does my daughter. The staff is friendly and helpful, the food is great, it is heaven to go to see the ocean from our room and to go to sleep to the sound of the waves. And when we came home exhausted from a full day of seeing baby seals and whales and lovely shops, there were chocolates on our bed and a teddy bear lying on his stomach reading a 1940's book, "Inside the CIA." Our only problem was that we had trouble finding it -- apparently it wasn't clear on the web site and we ended up at the corporate office. Some day I may try another B&B in the Four Sisters' group. For now, I am happy here. Jean Riseman

We had a fantastic time during area stay, staff was great and extremely friendly.
4.4 on May 06, 2017
We love visiting and come every year. The only comments would be too many carbs for breakfast and nit enough protein offerings (spouse is diabetic), but vey tasty! We've also been bothered by the outside lights when trying to sleep, even with shades pulled. Minor things, really, compared to the gorgeous location, beautiful rooms, and lovely staff. We'll be back again...always feel "at home" at Green Gables Inn.

My wife and I have been coming here for years. We have never been dissatisfied. The location, food, and staff are top drawer. There is never any question of where to stay when in Pacific Grove!

A very peaceful place with beautiful view.

Beautiful place to stay. We had an ocean view room with awesome views of the bay. They provided us with great service all around. It is our favorite place to stay in Pacific Grove!

Loved the Inn, right on the coast, we listened to the ocean every night. Staff was awesome, my wife & I had a wonderful experience. Highly recommended, I can't wait to go back.

My sister and I came to Green Gables, as we try to do annually, for a weekend of knitting and writing. It was its usual blissfully comfortable retreat, and we had a wonderful time. Result: several thousand words written on my short stories, and two knitted caps begun! Plus the restoration of our spirits. Thank you.
4.6 on February 07, 2017
Stayed in the upstairs room at the front with an unobstructed view of the bay! Wonderful time and we will hopefully do it again soon!
5 on February 05, 2017
I don't think they could improve in any way. Loved everything about Green Gables. The location is perfect. On the ocean, walking distance to Monterey aquarium, in charming Pacific Groves, super close to Carmel, but much more chill, very close to the beautiful 17 mile drive from Pacific Grove to Carmel. Back to the Green Gables, breakfast is a treat and different every day. Rooms are big and charming with every modern amenitie & wonderful bedding. Service is warm, attentive & top notch. Pefect
5 on February 02, 2017
The Green Gables Inn is one of my favourite places in the entire world - I like to come here just to be in the wonderful rooms and relax. I am a writer, and being here always produces several hundred words of good copy, written while I look out the window at the sea. It's like a vacation in the suburbs of Paradise.
5 on February 01, 2017
The view and proximity to the ocean is what I was looking for. The property was a beautifully maintained Victorian dating from 1888. The service and food were great.
5 on January 30, 2017
Enjoyed our stay

Everything about Green Gables Inn is perfect. Charming Victorian decor, idyllic location on the ocean in peaceful Pacific Grove, yet walking distance to Monterrey. Quick drive to Carmel. Attentive unobtrusive staff. Many viditors are regulars. It's a find. Thank you Karen Brown Travel website.

We had a wonderful time at the Green Gables Inn. We were on our honeymoon and it was a memorable stay. The Rooms and overall facilities were clean. The service was pleasant and prompt. Very thoughtful in the details (balloons and card). Thank you to the entire staff. I even was able to ask for some much needed protein (scrambled eggs). Thank you again and we are looking to return next yearh

Lovely place and well located. We are accustomed to a heartier breakfast at B&B's, but what was provided was adequate Would stay there again when in the area.
4.8 on January 09, 2017
Great place by the water for romantic escape for a couple of days or long weekend. Will definitely go there again.
4.4 on January 04, 2017
We had a great time at the Green Gables Inn over the New Year's Holiday. The location couldn't be better and the inn is just a lovely place to be. My only request would be to have better options for breakfast - more protein and veggies (how about an egg vegetable dish) and less carbs. Even more fruit and yogurt would be simple and much appreciated. But still, it was a delightful time!
4.2 on December 31, 2016
We had a relaxing quiet time at the inn. The breakfast was delicious and people were friendly, but quiet and respectful of privacy. What a beautiful place to gaze at the ocean, read, then head out for a walk.
3.6 on December 30, 2016
The location is great, the decor is historic, and we expected and received great service and a great breakfast. Our only complaint was the 2 upstairs rooms we had in the main house, while great ocean views, were extremely cold during the night. The heat was obviously turned off, or way down. It came back on at 6am. The 3rd room we had in the carriage house was toasty warm.
5 on December 26, 2016
One of our favorite bed and breakfast spots. It has wonderful views of the ocean, a fine and courteous staff. When ever we are traveling in the area, we try to stay at the Green Gables.
5 on December 24, 2016
We felt extremely well cared for during our recent stay by the caring staff. Our room was large, clean, and very well appointed (including a gas fireplace). Included are wonderful breakfasts, wine and cheese in the afternoons, freshly-baked cookies at night, and coffee and tea around the clock. The Inn offers free bicycles. It is right on the water, and within walking distance of restaurants and shopping.

Honey was the best host we've ever encountered
3.8 on December 08, 2016
Lovely location right on Monterey Bay--can't be beat. This is a fabulous place. The rooms vary a great deal--each have quaint qualities. The food is fine/ adequate, but not outstanding. Buffet style breakfast. This was a 2nd stay at this location. We will definitely return.

We really enjoyed the stay at Green Gables. My wife was happy with the Birthday's celebration. For sure we will be back.
3.6 on November 17, 2016
We have stayed at Green Gables several times. We love the inn, the rooms, the service and of course the location. We were disappointed this time in the breakfast. We stay in many B&Bs but breakfast both days were not up to par. The muffins one day were dry and slightly burnt, limited fruit (we actually went and bought fruit to supplement), egg dish one day was cold...etc.
5 on November 10, 2016
Great ocean views from the living area and our room. Pleasant staff. Honey is a great asset to your organization. She is very helpful with local resturants and discounts for future stays.

The Innkeepers are all phenomenal, the chef, Ophelia, is wonderful, and the whole team makes you feel like you are a part of the family. The location is the best! just over .25 mile walk to the Aquarium, you are ON the water, walking paths, walk to restaurants, shops, etc.
4.4 on October 08, 2016
We've enjoyed our three-day stay very much. The location is just perfect in front of one of the nicest spots along the coast of Monterey Bay. Breakfast and afternoon hors d'œuvre are excellent with a good variety. Staff is always helpful and make you feel comfortable. Our room was tiny and a little bit (historically) "smelly", but cute. Sharing the bathroom worked out well. We enjoyed renting bikes (for free) for the 17-mile drive, such a scenic tour! Hope to return one day! Clear recommendation!
3.8 on October 07, 2016
Delightful room. Especially the day bed on risers in balcony for full advantage of the view. A warm and inviting B & B. The afternoon hors d'ouerves nicely presented as was breakfast fresh fruit; though the quiche was too salty to eat. Higher quality sheets would be nicer, but bed was very comfortable. Bathrooms spotlessly clean with luxurious towels.

Location, views, amenities were great. 30th Anniversary celebration Would love to return again someday

My wife and I love to stay at the Green Gables. It's warm and inviting, and so close to Lover's Point and the aquarium. We love to get on the Inn's bicycles and ride to the wharf. This is our "go to" place to relax and recharge.

I wanted to surprised my boyfriend on his birthday. We loved the view and the cozy bedroom with fireplace and Jacuzzi. The hotel was waiting for us with balloons and champagne. We walked at the beach, enjoyed riding bikes and had a vegetarian dinner at Julia's of course, we want to come back!

Our daughter has moved to the Monterey area and we love to visit her and especially stay at the Green Gables Inn. The rooms are beautiful comfortable and convenient. The breakfast is fabulous as well as afternoon wine and appetizers and cookies and Cognac in the evening. Customer service is top notch as well.
3.8 on July 09, 2016
Usually when we are in Pacific Grove, we stay with good friends, but they were on the verge of a family trip, so we tried the Green Gabel Inn. What a wonderful place! We had a room in the carriage house on the second floor, so we had an ocean view through the trees from the room and the sitting area right outside our room. Ocean views, however small or obstructed, are always a plus for us. Our room was spotlessly clean. The bed was comfortable and the room actually had two sitting areas. There was also a small refrigerator, which was a good supplement to the ice chest from our two-week trip. Breakfast was served in the main house and consisted of an egg dish or pancakes, fruit and pastries. Coffee and teas are available all day, with cookies in the afternoon and evenings. There is also wine and hors d’oeuvres before dinnertime. We liked that the downtown restaurants were within walking distance, as was the Monterey Bay Aquarium. The oceanfront walking and bike paths across the street run south toward Carmel and north into Monterey. If our friends are again traveling or have a full house, we’ll definitely return to the Green Gables Inn.

We honeymooned here 32 years ago! This trip was taken as a post wedding celebration of our daughter!

I was hesitant about the shared bathroom, but it wasn't as bad as I thought, and they were large and nicely done. The breakfast was great. Beautiful views. Beautiful house. I would choose a different room next time, but overall we had a very good experience.

Beautiful, stately home with a nice buffet breakfast including hot items. Great ocean view and walking path in front of the property with plenty of available street parking. Shower pressure was average and water temperature shifted quickly. If in main building, note the stairs to the 2nd floor are narrow and steep so could be challenging for some. We enjoyed our 2 night stay and would stay here again.

Incredibly beautiful views. Lovely staff. Excellent breakfast, wine and cheese. A+++.
4.6 on May 13, 2016
We stayed here as the second half of our anniversary trip. We had a couple of days to spend and enjoyed every aspect of this property. It is right on the ocean with plenty of parking. There are great trails that run up and down the ocean and can take you right to Canary row. The building is gorgeous and perfectly maintained. The historic feel of the home is maintained and it feels cozy and comfortable. We stayed in the carriage house room. It was a large room with plenty of lounging area. It had a view of the ocean and lots of windows to enjoy the weather and listen to the water. The staff were all great and very helpful. They accommodated every request we had. We used the bikes they have available and although in need of service, they were good enough to get us around. This is also close to the 17mile drive which is a neat thing to do. I highly recommend this GEM.

One night stop over as we travel down highway 1. Location is perfect. easy walk to the stores or the seaside pathway. This is the 6th Four Sisters Inn we have visited. Never disappointed.

This property better than I expected, with beautiful victorian style house with Williams-sonoma style upgrades, and the property is in mint condition, very well maintained by its professional staff. My wife and I enjoyed our stay here and would love to come back again when we are in town! Slightly low points for dining since there is no dining options on-premise, but i enjoyed breakfast and wine and evening cookies.

We had a wonderful stay here. The rook was gorgeous with a nice view to the ocean. The staff was friendly attentive and most importantly, very friendly. We had a great talk with Honey about the history of the house as well as other daily things. We would love to come back on our next visit

I spent 2 days in this property for our first anniversary. We were in room1 which had a morning room directly overlooking the ocean. This the best room for the views and it is totally worth the price! My wife was more than over joyed looking at the room. The service was great. They had us checked in 5 minutes and gave the tour of the property and all amenities available for us. We had Hors d'oeuvre with wine and had a great evening before our dinner reservations. The management took care of the reservation for dinner. The property had bikes to loan the coastal trail is few feet away. I would highly recommend this place if you want to enjoy the views and a quiet and romantic time. I would definitely come back to this place!

Honey, the host, was outstanding. She made sure my husband had his favorite breakfast for his birthday morning. She answered a lot of questions and made recommendations for our dinner selection. We have stayed at seven Gables in the past but have decided this is our new place :-) Side note: I already did an extensive review of this property and have continued to get reminder notices and a final reminder notice now. Not sure what the glitches but you might want to look into it. Kind of annoying

We really enjoyed our two days and nights at the Green Gables. We will stay here again the next time we are in Pacific Grove. Excellent staff!

We stayed five nights at the Green Gables Inn. This was our second year in a row and it is so fabulous to be your guest. Thank you for everything. Being so near the Bay was a real plus so we could walk or run each morning before breakfast!
4.6 on January 18, 2016
Green Gables is a wonderful place for a special getaway. The location is outstanding as it is right on the ocean with wonderful views. The Lucy Suite is gorgeous with some of the most beautiful furniture we have ever seen. This was our 2nd visit and we will most certainly return in the future.
3.6 on January 14, 2016
Another nice stay at Green Gables. The outside of the property is a little tried and in need of some work, but the inside remains very nice.

It was so nice to be able to walk to Cannery Row (that-away) and also the downtown area of Pacific Grove (this-away)...and in the meantime, you are right in front of the beautiful bay.

The service was great and the morning breakfast buffet was excellent. The only real issue I had was the internet. It was too slow to get anything done or review any detailed messages. The rooms are bit outdated, but overall it was really nice and the views amazing. Great location to walk and explore.

My sister and I celebrated her retirement by stay at Green Gables, upstairs in the Balconey guestroom. It was so nice to see the ocean in the evening and in the morning first thing. Enjoy your stay as we did!

We stayed in the Jennifer room in the main house for a last minute overnight stay. The house is simply beautiful and the location perfect. The inn is right across the street from the ocean and just a short walk to the aquarium and cannery row. Booking online was easy, service was great and appetizers, wine, cookies and breakfast were nice extra touches. We have stayed here once before and definitely will again!

Had a quick getaway 3 days with my spouse, and surprised her with stay at Green Gables. The stay exceeded my expectations, and had to record the sound of the ocean crashing on the rocks in front of the GG to bring home with us. We will be back, and already decided we will reserve the same great room and continue to build great memories.
4.6 on December 04, 2015
I love the location and serenity I feel there at GG. We are already staying two nights in January.

My wife and I had a great time at Green Gable Inn, we walk along the beach had a wonderful dinner and came back to a comfortable room.
4.2 on November 28, 2015
Took a three night stay, for which they offered a great discount on the room. Great location, directly across the street from the bay, great views from most rooms. Very close to the Aquarium and Cannery Row, easily walkable. Staff is courteous and extremely helpful. Would definitely stay here again. The only possible negative, they need to pour a better grade of wine for the evening respite. There are many inexpensive wines available that are very good instead of what was offered.
5 on November 19, 2015
This place is perfectly placed between the aquarium and Pebble Beach. Want to shop? No problem. Want to golf? Got you covered. Want to just walk along the seashore on a moonlit night? It's all yours. The rooms are spacious and well appointed. The breakfast far surpasses anything you might get in town. And did I forget to mention the afternoon tea. Superbly done.

We stayed in one of the Carriage House rooms, which was large and with a lovely view and a great fireplace. The jetted tub fits two easily. The house is an charmingly old and beautiful -- like a B&B should be in a historic home. The staff were attentive, friendly and fun. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The location -- right across the street from beautiful coastline and within walking distance of many great restaurants and the Aquarium -- cannot be beat.
5 on November 02, 2015
We loved our too short stay at Green Gables Inn. The location was perfect for our needs. The actual setting was exquisite with the view out over the beach and path. The afternoon "tea" was delicious and expansive with wine/coffee/tea, cheese, salad, soup and crackers. The welcome hospitality and request accommodations were very special. The room amenities included robes. Cannery Row was just a short drive away. Unless you are averse to sharing large and elegant bathrooms, Green Gables is perfect for a Monterey stay..

Nice welcome, coastal views and humming birds a treat. Easy walking promenade to the canneries and the point.

Views were wonderful, House was beautiful. Location was convenient. We really enjoyed staying here in the main house top floor with ocean view.
5 on October 23, 2015
The view from the Chapel Room was wondrous, and being able to open the windows and allow the sea breeze and the sound of the waves was a relaxing tonic. Loved the wine/cheese+ tasting overlooking the beachfront. The two full bathrooms were more than adequate and readily available. Do be aware that stairs may be necessary, and there are no ensuite bathrooms.

This has been the latest in stays at Green Gables over the years (20?) and just as enjoyable as all the others. The location is unbeatable and staff and service are marvelous. These stays are always anticipated and remembered with satisfaction.

Great place to stay quirky and elegant, Friendly staff and nice afternoon tea and drinks.
4.6 on October 10, 2015
We stayed in a room in the Carriage House. Our view was much better than expected and the room was wonderful. The bathroom had a nice stall shower, two sinks, a tub with jets. The room was very large, with a king size bed, fireplace with two chairs and large screen TV and sitting area.It was a very short walk to Cannery Row. The breakfast was tasty, but it lacked breakfast meats. All in all, we will be back for the view and the very nice room

Green Gables provided a comfortable and charming location for exploring the Monterey area. The old furnishings and decor gave a feeling of early California to the place. The room was large and bed comfortable and the breakfast service and other snacks were great. I only wish we didnt have that two storey climb with bags!

The last time we stayed at the Green Gables Inn was 15 years ago. We had loved our experience so much that when I found out we would be returning to the area this summer, I just knew we had to stay there again. I was a bit nervous that we might be disappointed because our memory of the Green Gables was just so perfect, but as soon as we arrived I knew my worries were for all for nothing. I can honestly say that the Green Gables Inn is my favorite bed and breakfast inn, and we stay at a lot of B&Bs. It is our favorite way to travel. Our rooms were beautiful and the views from our windows were just magnificent. The innkeepers were friendly and helpful and the staff was excellent. My son has Celiac disease and they went out of their way to make sure there were gluten free options for him at breakfast and at the afternoon wine and hors doeuvres served from 4:00 - 6:00 PM. They even had gluten free chocolate chip cookies for him! They gave us fabulous restaurant recommendations for dinner. We used their bikes to ride up and down the coastline, which is stunning. Breakfasts were delicious and substantial. Afternoon appetizers were quite good and so substantial that we didn't need to order appetizers when we went out for dinner later. If you can arrange a stay at the Green Gables Inn I highly recommend it. Being from the East Coast, it will be a while before we return, but it is a place I will visit again and again.
3.6 on September 09, 2015
We arrived in the afternoon from San Francisco and enjoyed a quite delicious afternoon tea. Then we moved into our room on the first floor with an magnificent sea view. Supported by the front desk we got a reservation at Passion Fish where we enjoyed a great evening with great food. Green Gable Inn is a great place to be ann enjoy holidays.
3.6 on August 27, 2015
Breakfasts are exceptional and the location across the street from the water can't be beat! A little on the expensive side if you're on a tight budget but I like the laid back happy hour in the evenings. A close walk to el vecchio and vivoli's chowder house, too. Some staff are nicer and more helpful than others. We'll return in October to stay in the main house.
4.0 on August 27, 2015
Green Gables is everything you want in a seaside B&B; from the spectacular views, the wonderful breakfasts, to the great guest conversation in the sitting areas, I wouldn't hesitate to make another reservation. Honey at the front desk and the rest of the staff made sure ours stay was truly memorable.
5 on August 24, 2015
What a marvelous B&B! The view was exquisite. The room was extremely pleasant even in the carriage house. The meals were delicious and very interesting. The staff was very helpful. I would have loved to spend a week there rather than one night.
4.4 on August 22, 2015
Perfect location with beautiful views. Food was great, everything was easily available. Staff was very friendly and made sure you were cimfortable. Great area to be in with easy access to walking along the water.

Wonderful room, short way to Monterey. On your way you could watch the seals. very clean, directly located at the shore. You could always help yourself with coffee. night and day. Nothing to complain.
5 on August 05, 2015
Loved our stay at Green Gables. The bikes were so fun and we got to see some amazing views of whales while riding them. Food was great. Loved the room, bathrobes and shared bathrooms. And most important, Honey was amazing - so helpful and friendly. We will return when we get the chance and recommend this place to friends.
5 on June 23, 2015
Perfect location - 1/2 mile walk to Cannery Row &1/2 mile walk to downtown Pacific Grove. Free bike use was great. View of the bay is as good as it gets. Could sit and watch the seals and sea otters all day from the windows. Bed was the best it could be. Rooms were decorated tastefully and appropriately. Staff as exceptionally attentive to all needs. Service and food was wonderful. Extras like turn-down service, the little chocolates, cookies, tea/coffee, etc.. was great. We will cross the country again just to stay there.
4.8 on June 10, 2015
Charming place, and our room had a wonderful view of the ocean. Staff was very helpful, recommending two great restaurants and making reservations for us each night. Quiet place, great for a good night's sleep. Very good breakfast, plus great snacks & wine in the afternoon.

3.8 on June 02, 2015
My wife and I spent 3 days at the Green Gables Inn as part of our 5th anniversary trip. We can't say enough great things about the experience! First the location in Pacific Grove is outstanding - the views of the ocean in the morning for breakfast are breathtaking and we loved having access to the bike path both for our morning runs and evening walks. Second the service at the Inn is outstanding - the breakfast, cookies, and wine hour are all top notch for food quality. And the recommendations by Ivy for restaurants were outstanding and walkable from the Inn (definitely try Il Vecchio). We took full advantage of the views, the awesome rooms (with cozy fireplace and view of the ocean), and cookies/coffee. Our only regret is we didn't take out the free bicyles they have on site - but we'll do that on our next visit. It was a great place to stay for our time on the Monterey Penn and although the prices look fairly high - the inclusion of full breakfast + snacks and happy hour as well as the location make it well worth it.
4.2 on June 01, 2015
We stayed overnight. Green Gables is a lovely property. We stayed in the Jennifer room which is bright and airy. A relaxing place to stay

I brought my college age daughter down to Monterey to have a bonding experience and to create a loving memory. We were both delighted by the home and especially our balcony room overlooking the ocean. We loved waking in up to the smell of pancakes and treats for breakfast.. Overall a memorable and delightful experience.

We so enjoyed our stay at the Green Gables Inn. It was such a picturesque building so well kept and had many interesting elements to it. The staff were so friendly and nothing was to much trouble for them. We loved the wine and cookies at 4 pm, a very civilised time to start ones relaxing evening and then moving on to sherry and nibbles afterwards. Will definitely come back if come back to visit the area which I would love to do.

I first stayed at Green Gables nearly 30 years ago and have enjoyed my stays there over the years for special events and weekend getaways. The location is absolutely amazing, with goreous views of waves crashing on rocks visible from our guest room. The accommodations are charming and comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful and the afternoon appetizers and morning breakfasts delicious and satisfying. Green Gables continues to be at the top of my list of B and B destinations!

We have been staying at the Four Sisters Inns for the past ten years+ and have always had a wonderful time.
4.6 on March 25, 2015
I had zero complaints about my recent stay at the Green Gables Inn. My only comment is that as I was on the bottom level of the Carriage House and the floors seemed rather thin. I had to wake up when my upstairs neighbors were up as I could hear them crossing the floor over and over again. I would suggest asking for a room on the top floor as this is an older building. Everything else was lovely.
5 on March 23, 2015
Room was comfortable and well decorated, the common areas inviting, breakfast very good and the location beautiful. The staff was friendly and accomodating and we appreciated the wine and cheese they provided even though we arrived after the stated serving time. Definitely a "go to" place if we're back in the area.
4.4 on March 22, 2015
My mother and I stayed in the Lacy Suite which was nice and roomy. The afternoon reception was great with more than just cheese and wine. Breakfast was good and the views whole dinning are great. I would stay here again if I return to the area.

The location is fantastic. A five minute walk from the Aquarium. The place is clean and comfortable. Breakfast is ok. Our room had a view of the shoreline which is just across the street. It was a real treat to be sitting our room, watching and listening to the waves break over the rocks.

My husband and I had the most wonderful stay at the green gables inn! It completely exceeded our expectations in every way. The service was amazing. The inn keepers were incredibly accommodating. The food was delicious and the location! It's located In the most perfect spot along the coast in Monterey. We stayed in one of the rooms on the top floor of the cottage house. We had our own bathroom with a big jacuzzi tub and a fire place. We absolutely loved it! We could hear the waves crash all night long and we could keep the windows open in January! It truly was the most perfect stay, the food, the view, the service, the room. It was all too good to be true, especially for the price! We will definitely be back and we have already recommended it to friends and family :)
2.2 on February 09, 2015
Recently stayed here in February and was disappointed. The location could not be better. You have a terrific view from the main house of the Pacific and 17-Mile Drive and Carmel (two must sees) are very close by. However, Canary Row was a huge disappointment (I should have known better), and there was no place to go for dinner in Monterey/Pacific Grove after 8 PM. Our innkeepers were nice and the facilities clean but very dated. The decor was little too Victorian for my taste. Breakfast was plain and unimaginative: cold cereal, juice, and scrambled eggs.
3.8 on February 05, 2015
We stayed here for our honeymoon 25 years ago. Decided to return for our 25th. Our stay was great. The arrival reception was great. We had a room that overlooked the ocean. They serve a continental breakfast each morning which each day included a hot item which was well presented. Staff was great. We will definitely be back for future anniversaries.
5 on January 25, 2015
We stayed in the carriage house... view of the ocean was amazing (they say it is only a partial view). We spent the afternoon watching two deer which hang out nearby. We only ended up eating two lunches out as the breakfasts and evening "appetizers" and wine were plenty. The Jacuzzi tub was so enjoyable. Would DEFINITELY go back.
5 on January 21, 2015
We loved it. Rosie helped us check in, but even before check in the service was amazing. We bought the package that included dinner and Rosie emailed me, asked if it was a special occasion and made a reservation for us for dinner. We walked in to balloons in our room and a view of the bay! The food was delicious and everyone was great. I am definitely coming back!

We stayed at the Green Gables Inn last week and found it to be delightful in every way. We booked the Lacy suite and were more than impressed when we arrived to the beautiful decor and amenities the suite offered. From the parlor area to the bed and bath area, it was truly remarkable. The huge oak armoire and four-poster bed were amazing. The only slight problem for some might have been the voices heard in the kitchen from our bathroom. Definitely not worthy of anything less than outstanding ratings from us.
5 on November 23, 2014
The room was spacious, the view was spectacular and the staff were wonderful. We stayed two nights and really relaxed and enjoyed ourselves from the moment we arrived. The h'ordourves and wine were great as was the cookies at bedtime. Cozy fireplace in the living room and great linens on the bed. I would highly recommend this establishment. Lovely, lovely place.
3.4 on November 22, 2014
We have celebrated two anniversaries here. This was our 40th. The staff is very friendly and helpful. We had a room with its own bathroom this time. We have also shared a bathroom here before, and it was always easily available with no problems. We have always stayed in the main house, so cannot tell you about the back guest houses. The view is magnificent from the dining areas. Breakfast was simple with good oatmeal daily, and small bites of fresh fruit. Quiche was pretty good one day, ready made pancakes with hard boiled eggs second day. We enjoyed our wine and cheese in the evening, and seemed to always get a great ocean view window seat. Yummy cookies at bedtime. The free turn down service included a white rose and chocolates. We were able to walk to the aquarium from here. It is about a half mile along the ocean. Lounge with fireplace and comfy sofas has all the local menus, and staff is happy to give suggestions. We will definitely return!
4.0 on November 16, 2014
We booked the most inexpensive room at this B&B. It was almost a third less than all their other rooms. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was nice, quiet and clean. The 'Garret Room' would be an EXCELLENT room for a single guest... but is a little cramped for a couple. Having said that, the shared bathrooms are right next to it and no noise was heard from people using them. There is also plenty of common area to spend time in, viz., the living and dining room areas! The staff is remarkable and very accommodating to the guests needs. Our biggest disappointment was the limited breakfast selection. The quality of the food was good, but the first day the 'entree' choice was only oatmeal or hard boiled eggs. There were plenty of bread items, fresh fruit etc. the second day they had scrambled eggs instead of oatmeal. In the afternoon they put out a nice assortment of cheeses, crackers and palatable wine. In the evenings they provide another after dinner wine and cookies. We missed this both nights because we were out at dinner . We really enjoyed the company of the other guests who we chatted with in the common areas. One couple we talked with has been going there regularly for over 10 years and the woman commented that she thought the food offerings had been lessening in quality for several years. She also said she wasn't going to mention it... because it was still 'OK'. I told her that her comments would be valuable because she's a regular and who is better to comment? We wiould definitely consider staying here again- just in any other room. Great location, very pleasant and helpful staff.
4.8 on November 15, 2014
We were overwhelmed by an apartment-size room with extravagantly laid out bath/shower and toilet facilities - with a view of the ocean. However we missed at least a small refrigerator in the room, though there was one in the main house for ALL guests to share. Every day we had a different - delicious - breakfast. The same applies to the afternoon appetizers.
5 on November 10, 2014
The location of the Green Gables Inn is stunning and our room was quite lovely. The staff were very helpful and professional and we can't wait to return.
5 on November 02, 2014
As always, a comfortable and welcoming night at Green Gables. Stayed in Garrett, fell asleep in the big comfortable bed to the sounds of the waves just outside. Both room and bathrooms were immaculate, plenty of coffee and really good fresh fruit included in breakfast, and there is no prettier place in Pacific Grove to have breakfast than the parlor of Green Gables.
5 on October 28, 2014
We stayed in the Lacy Suite in the main house which had a comfy king size bed and a large private sitting room with gas fireplace. The antique furniture and decor brought this beautiful historic home to life. The location is perfect- right on the water. Eating breakfast while looking out over the Pacific Ocean was breathtaking. Hors d'oeuvres, along with red and white wine, were a welcomed afternoon treat. The day was topped off by Sherry and freshly baked cookies served in the evening. The staff was friendly and welcoming and shared stories about the family owned inn. It was an easy walk along the bike/ walking path to Cannery Row. While we were in Pacific Grove, I searched out other inns i had considered and was so happy i had chosen Green Gables. It was the perfect choice.
4.2 on October 27, 2014
We really enjoy Green Gables Inn. The location is amazing, just across the street from the Pacific Ocean. They offered free bicycles, free breakfast and also a free happy hour with cheeses and wine. Decoration is original from the opening year of 1888. The atmosphere is great with nice ambience music the whole day. Cleanliness could be better - the glass windows were not very clean and had some spider's net.
4.2 on October 25, 2014
We had a relaxing time at the Inn and staff were very helpful and made our stay memorable. My husband loved the architecture of the building and I loved the view and proximity to everything.
5 on October 25, 2014
We spend just one night in Green Gables due to our California trip and we're very sad to leave this place after so short time. The service was excellent (Susan is a great host) and also the food at afternoon was prepared with a lot of love. We enjoyed our stay and we' d book it again.
5 on October 11, 2014
Delightful 1-night stay in a charming historic house. We knew in advance that we would have to share the bathroom with other people. It's never been a problem. There are 2 bathrooms on the same floor. Nice cookies. Really easy to park in the area. Nice to have the opportunity to borrow a bike. We would definitely recommend this place for you staying in Monterey, especially if you like dolls and teddy bears!

Very nice room. Great Staff. Great Location. A much needed respit enjoyed by both of us.
3.8 on October 03, 2014
We noticed a few things that were different: There was dust on the top of the curtains in the bathroom, and the bedroom window areas were dusty. Also, the bathroom had a chipped soap dish. There is usually bacon included in the breakfast, and the sherry was taken away earlier. The small table in front of the window where we sat was different and the leg on either side hit in the middle of our chair/legs, so had to move the chair to sit comfortably, but the place-setting was then askew. Nothing earth-shattering, but noticeable to us since we've stayed with you several times, and since the prices went up a bit. We still love staying with you!
3.2 on September 30, 2014
The building is incredible and I have been a fan of this place forever! However, the décor looks very tired, the caretaker was neither friendly or rude just kinda NO personality. For a special house like this, you want someone who acts like they actually like their job!

The little extras like a great breakfast means a lot- The poached eggs with Hollandaise sauce over vegetables and hash browns were a wonderful start- add bagels, assorted breads and home made mini muffins + yogurt, cereal, fresh sliced fruit and coffee- who could want anything else?! Honey is the grounding force of the place- she greets you when you check and is at the front desk day and night to help with all your needs. She even mailed me my favorite pillow I left in the room by mistake. Place was being painted while we were there and painters did not make us feel uncomfortable. Rented two rooms with king sized beds plus a pull out sofa bed and extra pad on bed made sleeping on the pull out rather comfortable. Fireplace in room was nice addition to chilly morning. Big screen tv in both rooms rented. Bathrooms large with double sinks, shower and soaker tub. Peek view to ocean with outside patio tables perfect for sunset cocktails- note: wine was served in the evening and we did not attend. We did go down for nightly cookies in the two cookie jars- homemade and delicious. Turn down bed service upon request with a rose and chocolate on our pillows. I went with my mother for a 2 night visit to Monterey and Pacific Grove, next time I will bring my husband.

loved the inn and in a perfect location...our only small complaint, is the room could smell fresher... it is an older home, converted to an Inn, and it is wonderful, but there is a smell of old wood, or something that could be refreshed...
4.8 on September 11, 2014
The Green Gables Inn is a dramatic house itself. Our room was much larger than I expected and was very clean. Breakfast was wonderful. The staff and other guests were so friendly. I can't think of anything that would have made our 2 night stay better - other than staying longer.

We stayed at Green Gables 27 yrs ago on our honeymoon and had the opportunity to stay in the same room again. The staff was very welcoming, helpful, and our stay was wonderful.

We were welcomed by the manager of the inn and she showed us around and told us a few things about the place. She was very welcoming and nice. Our room was amazing. A former chapel which was transformed into a bedroom. The view was amazing as well. We could see otters and sea lions and also a majestic view of the bay. Even though the bathrooms were shared, that never caused any problem. They were spotless clean. The breakfast, the appetizers and the wine were delicious. Thank you Green Gables Inn!

Staying in The Green Gables Inn is like living in a dream. Friendly people, wonderfull rooms, supernice house, very nice breakfast and wining. A good reason for us to travel all the way from Europe to show our kids all those bears and lovely food and atmosphere and most of all the spectaculair view on the Pacific!

We stayed in the Lacey Ste. Pro: It is on the first floor and is very roomy, clean and charming. Lovely fireplace for added ambience. The location cannot be beat. We walked easily and safely, to Cannery Row/Aquarium, as well as to central Pacific Grove where restaurants are. There are plentiful street parking (a surprise.) Con: This room has no direct ocean view but this did not bother us because we were mostly out during the day. Little to nonexistent host-guest interaction, but we did not mind this because we are not chit-chatty people, and we did not attend the afternoon tea time. Definitely would stay in the same room again!

We visitoors, from South Carolina had a delightful visit at the Green Gables at Pacific Grove. It was within walkin distance of restaurents and attractions. The breakfasts were awesome , friendliness abounded ,helped with local attractions, and an overall wonderful visit to Pacific Grove.

We found this B & B rather by accident and are so glad we did! Fantastic and very helpful staff, very clean and quiet rooms, breakfast and afternoon snacks were very good (plus the complimentary wine and Sherry were a nice added touch), and literally right across the street from the ocean. It was perfect for a nice weekend outside of the city

Our room, Lacy Suite, was not what I would consider traditional. Located literally next to the front door, you'd think it was the house library or sitting room. It had a library of books, fireplace, a tv placed on a stand, a couch with an ottoman, and in the next room was a poster sized king bed, but can be closed off with a sliding partition. This Inn had many nice touches from placing "birthday" balloons in our room for Stephen, had a nice "Happy hour" buffet at 4:30 pm, which included wine, cheese, and other tasty snacks, to the cookies at night (snickerdoodles and chocolate chips). We missed the sherry, which I guess ended at 8:00 pm. The breakfast was adequate. It wasn't the most "gourmet" but they did provide a buffet that had something for everyone, from fruit, oatmeal, bacon, eggs, French toast, bagels, yogurt, and such. At night, after the beach tourist leaves, you can find parking. During the day, we circled the block once to find a spot located at the top of the street.

Excellent location. Staff were very welcoming. Enjoyed the victorian feel inside and outside of the Inn. Will definitely return.

We had a wonderful stay, the food served at wine tasting was so satisfying we didn't even go to dinner. Breakfast was great also.

Beautiful B&B overlooking Monterey Bay. We were able to hear the seals in the morning and view them from our window. B&B is within walking distance of restaurants. There is a running/bicycle trail along the bay which is across the street from the B&B. Easy drive into Monterey or Pacific Grove.

This lovely Victorian inn is located across from the bay. Our room was very clean, though small - with a hall bath, Afternoon snacks and breakfast were lovely and staff was very accommodating. Thought it was worth giving up the private bathroom for the view but there really was no place to sit in the room and watch the water. Also the street noise was more than we anticipated. Next time would take a back room with a private bathroom.
3.6 on July 16, 2014
This is a great place to stay for location if you want beautiful ocean views. We stayed in the Balcony Room and loved hearing the ocean surf as we went to sleep each night...and the view is fantastic. The inn is very clean and sharing a couple of bathrooms with two other bedrooms was not a problem. The breakfast was decent, but nothing special; we were well aware this would be the case from reading reviews in advance. This property is located in a residential neighborhood, so it is short walk to the closest restaurants (~1/2 mile).
4.4 on July 06, 2014
Excellent experience. The location in front of the ocean with fantastic views is outstanding. The rooms are very good. The wine and food in the evening is very tasty and good quality, as it is the breakfast. The best is the service. The staff was always ready to make reservations and recommendations. I have stayed at 3 of the Four Sisters B&B and they are excellent. Luis Mesa

The Green Gables Inn was a pleasant place to stay, with a beautiful location, easy walking distance to dining and shopping and right across the street from the coastline walk that's so wonderful in Pacific Grove. The breakfasts were perfunctory, a buffet of oatmeal, pastries, and some egg dish, and the white wine for the afternoon hors d'oeuvres was sweet and undrinkable.
4.6 on June 27, 2014
I stayed at the Green Gables Inn for the first time recently. My room was wonderful, the bed was very comfy. The breakfast was very good both mornings. The inn is located within easy walking distance of Cannery Row, and even the wharf. I could hear the ocean at night (with the windows open). I will probably return in the future.
4.2 on June 26, 2014
We stayed in the Lacy Suite for our anniversary. It was magical and enchanting. We felt transported back to 1888 when Green Gables was built. The ocean views were beautiful. We can't wait to go again!

Green Gables Inn is a beautiful B&B, with lovely ocean-view rooms, superb food, and friendly staff. It is a joy to be their guest.

Really enjoyed our stay here during our honeymoon
4.6 on June 08, 2014
A wonderful inn that truly reflects the beauty that is Pacific Grove and Monterey peninsula. A stones throw from the water and from the walking trail that was once the railroad line, this inn will make you want to come back for another relaxing stay. The staff is warm and inviting, and the breakfast recipes to be longed for once you leave. This is the first of the Four Sisters Inns, and we recommend that you try all of them.

We stayed last year for our anniversary and this year we sent my Mother in law for her birthday. We fell in love with the Chapel room, and Mom truly enjoyed the Garrette room. I would heartily suggest The Green Gables Inn to anyone wanting to visit in Monteray.
3.8 on June 02, 2014
We absolutely love Green Gables! This was a return visit for us. (We first visited 18 months ago.) The views, the service, the cozy room, the tasty treats in the evening --all are special. We were also surprised by balloons, a rose and truffles in our room to celebrate our anniversary, which made our visit especially nice. We stayed in the Garrett Room and upon arrival, the room had an unpleasant sewer-like odor. Susan treated our sink drain and the tub drain in the adjoining bathroom, and after several hours, the odor was gone. Thanks for the help, Susan! Our home is in Florida, but we will definitely be back for a stay in the future.

My husband and I spent our first anniversary here, and everything was perfect! The employees at Green Gables went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable. The complimentary breakfast and wine/hors d'oeuvres were tasty, and cut down on food costs! Green Gables is in a perfect location. It's right on the water and within a short walking distance of Cannery Row, the aquarium, and downtown Pacific Grove. I highly recommend Green Gables, and would definitely go back myself!

We really enjoyed the room, the breakfast, and the location. Loved the stay and can't wait to go back.

My first experience with a bed and breakfast- I am officially a fan. We had a phenomenal view of the ocean, the room itself was cozy and elegant at the same time. It is also within walking distance of the aquarium. Great time!
4.4 on May 21, 2014
The suite we chose was outstanding. We loved the turndown service. The snacks, drinks and wine were so nice. The morning breakfasts were so lovely. The view from our rooms and the diningroom was to die for. We were also very fortunate to have great weather. The walk to the aquarium and other attractions was so nice. The staff gave us great advice for evening dinners at near by restaurants. It was a great experience.

Very helpful staff who genuinely were concerned that we enjoyed our stay to the max. We left a sweater behind and they are kindly mailing it to us. We would return and stay here again with gusto. Such a beautiful, fun location!

My husband and I traveled from Pennsylvania to visit some family, and to take a much anticipated drive up US-1 from San Diego to San Francisco. The Green Gables Inn was recommended to us by family, and I was thrilled to find out that they accepted the B&B.com gift certificate that our children had given us. What a beautiful gem on Monterey Bay!! We arrived a little later than expected, but they kept the appetizers and wine out so we could relax and unwind from our long drive. The views from the dining room are just stunning!! It had just rained a bit, and we were treated to a giant rainbow over the ocean! I will never forget that! We stayed in a beautiful room with a fireplace and a four poster bed. We enjoyed sitting by the fire, drinking our wine. The fresh baked cookies and sherry are put out in the dining room each evening...just a special little treat. The morning breakfast is served buffet style, and is just delicious. The best part of breakfast is the beautiful view of the waves crashing on the rocks just outside. We took a long walk along the ocean before we checked out. We can see why The Green Gables Inn is one of California's best B&Bs!

We stayed at Green Gables Inn on our 20th wedding anniversary trip through California. We were given a sweet room with a gorgeous view of the ocean. Breakfast the following morning was outstanding. We enjoyed our stay immensely!

We stayed unfortunately only one night but we would have loved to stay longer. This is a wonderfully appointed place, oozing charm with being either cutesy or kitschig. The breakfast was lovely and the cookies and tea and the port in the evening. And the location just across the road from the rock shore was ideal -- We were lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves on the rocks, which for us is always a delight.

My fiance and I stayed hear after our engagement - very romantic and wonderful. Great breakfast delivered to our room, wonderful amenities and surrounding natural beauty. Highly recommend!

We've been visiting Green Gables every year since 1989 and it is the highlight of our year. The beauty of the location, the historic home, the wonderful food, and friendly staff combine to make Green Gables our preferred location for a peaceful getaway.

My husband and I stayed at the Green Gables Inn for our anniversary. We found the setting to be tranquil and the staff warm and friendly. We will certainly be back for some much needed romantic time!

All amenities were well-done. The concierge was very attentive, and went out of her way to make sure everything was perfect. She even called a local restaurant for us to check how late they would be serving dinner. Other reviewers mentioned the carpet wearing out. Please remember, this is a 120+ year old house. As long as it's not a safety hazard, I consider it to be "character". They recently hired a new cook, who is an absolutely marvelous baker! Being right on the water, we enjoyed hearing the ocean waves at night. Thanks for making our stay the best! Next time, we'll have to stay longer.

Green Gables Inn is cosy and charming. Staff is very kind. My room, Garret Guestroom, was too narrow and full of things (cuschions, curtains, puppets), but the other rooms were wide and bright. Breakfast was enjoyable with lot of choice. Place was beautiful, even if the weather is awful.

My Husband took me to the Green Gables inn for my birthday. We spent 3 nights there 1 night in the gable room and 2 nights in the Carriage house rooms. They gable room was just gorgeous and the view was to die for. I loved the loft. The next 2 nights we spent in the carriage house and I do have to say it was amazing. The service was awesome and the food was wonderful. The staff is very friendly and the property is very clean. I would love to go back again.

This place is lovely. We stayed in a room with a fireplace/library and ocean views. The food is delicious and the cookies and cakes at night are also delicious. We will be back when we go up the Coast.

I've stayed in three of the delightful rooms at the Green Gables in, and each offers something special. In addition to a view of one of prettiest spots on earth, the Gable Room features a little attic accessed by a ladder from the main room. It's the perfect place to read while reclining on the cushioned ledge, gazing out at another great view. Their afternoon wine and cheese spread is always scrumptious, and the ever-present coffee, sodas and sherry are a lovely extra. The perfect place for a romantic getaway.

Great food, charming room, pleasant people 0 loved our stay!! Would like to come again.

This was a cute little bed and breakfast, but the rooms definetly needed updating. The fabrics were worn and faded, the one chair in the room had cushions that were ripped and the paint was peeling around the windows and walls. The breakfast was unlike any other b&b we had ever stayed in. It was a continental type breakfast, unimaginative and uninspired. You even toasted your own bread!! Coffee was often cold just sitting in a thermal carafe on the sideboard. Had to carry own bags, there was no help, up two very narrow staircases. Would not really recommend this place

We stayed in the structure behind the house on the third floor. We had a partial ocean view. The greatest part was hearing the tides at night. The service was great. Breakfast in bed was a treat and the office staff was fantastic and went way beyond the extra-mile.

The Inn was gorgeous and a fireplace on in Aug. at night! Inn is right across from the bay. We had a wonderful time. Rode bikes through Pebble Beach. We will look forward to going back!

This B&B is outstanding! Very beautiful inside and the beach is across the street. Perfect hospitality. Deco is the most gorgeous!
