My husband and I stayed here for a few days last week and can not say enough good things. The place was beautiful, the service was amazing and the food was delicious. Also, the location can't be beat. Definitely stay here!!!
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 only stayed two nights, but would have liked longer. Room (Point Lobos) very comfortable, wasn't expecting bath with water jets, nice surprise, also separate toilet is good facility. Hotel very comfortable feeling, breakfasts simple but tasty and good. Would recommend.
The owners and staff make you feel welcome from the moment you arrive. Our stay was for three nights and each breakfast was a new and wonderful experience except for the smoothie which you would not want to change. The afternoon wine, tea and snacks were a delight and the perfect time for the guests to exchange dining tips and excursion suggestions. One of the hosts was always on hand to help with direction, make suggestions and help with reservation. Very comfortable, great grounds and views with ample on site parking.
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.
Lovely quaint Victorian Bed and Breakfast with the added bonus of free Wine and nibbles at 4:30 pm. Unlimited supply of Coffee and Tea. Great selection for Breakfast. Very enjoyable stat and very reasonable rates.
This is our second time to stay at the Gosby House and we were every bit as pleased as the first time. It's location on the main street of Pacific Grove makes for easy dining, shopping, and it's within a short distance to the ocean. The staff is friendly, professional and helpful. The atmosphere is conducive to enjoying fellow travelers. We met people from Sweden and Denmark, as well as East Coast people. Breakfast and snacks are always delicious! We'll definitely go back again and highly recommend the Gosby House Inn!
The Four Sisters beds are always dreamy and comfortable. Room clean and well decorated. We both luxuriated in the soothing spa tub—the bubbles relieved our muscles from the bike ride along the coast. And the breakfast—always gourmet— always tasty! The staff friendly and welcoming
Nicely remodeled in the early 2000's with a Polynesian decor. Ocean view rooms are tight but nicely appointed. Small veranda which is “somewhat” private. Staff was excellent, very helpful. Within walking distance to everything in Carmel. Coming home, be prepared for the last couple of blocks uphill though. Standard continental breakfast included, fresh fruits, Danish etc. Hard boiled eggs are impossible to peel.
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!
This is a very quaint Victorian in walking distance from the wharf and boardwalk in Santa Cruz. The staff is very nice. The breakfast is great with a variety of food offered daily. The wine/cheese in the afternoon was also very tasty. There is always an abundance of fresh baked cookies for the snack if you need one.
We got a room they described as small because it was cheaper, and it was small. It had room for a queen bed and some nightstands but not much else. There was hardly anywhere to set our luggage and stuff. The bathroom was a normal size and felt roomy in comparison. The inn does have sitting areas downstairs where you eat breakfast, and they are accessible all the time. We found ourselves sitting on a sofa downstairs enjoying some of the dessert and hot beverages they provide in the evenings. Breakfast was quite good. Each morning they had a hot vegetarian egg dish and a sweet breakfast dish (example - baked scrambled eggs with some cheese in them and crepes with fruit), along with fresh fruit, oatmeal, muffins and breads. We came here for the aquarium. This inn is about a mile away and we chose to walk. It is a pretty flat walk, no hills. The shorter way is to go down Lighthouse, but the more pleasant way is to head north until you hit the pathway along the shore.
Beautiful Victorian House in an excellent location at the heart of downtown Pacific Grove. Bright, spacious, well-appointed room. Friendly helpful smiling service! Breakfast buffet healthy, varied and beautifully presented. Complimentary wine and appetizers in the afternoon a surprise - abundant and tasty recipes. The overall atmosphere of Gosby is so comfortable and friendly that visitors felt it too - we socialized with each other during the breakfasts and cocktails, a plus travel experience. Most of all, great value: our Gosby room was less expensive than other B and B's! Will definitely go back there again! Clay and Eleanor from Vancouver
We quickly booked 1 night at the West Cliff Inn last weekend, deciding on the smallest room since we knew we had to be up and on our way. We were VERY pleasantly surprised to be upgraded to their best room for the night!!! Gorgeous view of the Santa Cruz Wharf, lovely afternoon wine and appetizers, and breakfast was delicious! We will definitely return! A real gem!!!!
We stayed here for my birthday and was pleasantly surprised at the quality of our experience. The room was amazing with a fireplace (not needed) and a large deck with a spa. Just a short walk from the Boardwalk.I highly recommend it!
We stayed one night in the King Spa Suite with outdoor hot tub and it was the perfect end to a pretty day with a delicious recommended dinner at Ristorante Avanti. The bed was soft, the room was clean, there was an A/C unit since we've had record breaking heat, and it was convenient short walk to the beach, with more than anticipated luxurious egg/swiss/mushroom omelette, blueberry pancakes, cheddar scones, and other delicious treats - couldn't have asked for more.
The room we stayed in was small, but had a Jacuzzi tub! Centered right on Main street, everything is within walking distance. The staff was kind, the food good. Wish we could have stayed more than one night.
Lovely B&B in Monterey. Rooms were very nice and quiet. Breakfast was filling and delicious. Some of the rooms have separate bathrooms - a toilet and shower off the hall but a sink in your room - just be aware if you're booking those.
This was our second time at the Gosby House. The breakfast is really good. Staff was helpful on places to eat and wineries. Our one complaint was the bed was not really that comfortable.
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.
Formally known as Carmel-by-the-Sea, the quaint seaside city of Carmel offers the quintessential California experience to residents and visitors alike. More of a village than a metropolitan area, Carmel boasts natural beauty and world-class attractions. Local lodging options include upscale resort hotels, cozy cottages, budget beach motels and numerous hotel alternatives, including dog-friendly bed and breakfast inns.
Carmel''s seaside location along the Central California Coast is typical Mediterranean cool. Even in summertime, the weather tends to be overcast, especially when morning fog fails to burn away by noontime.
