Historic, charming bed and breakfast with plenty of extras
Settle in at the historic Pacific Grove Inn in a quiet yet central location on the Monterey Peninsula. Walk to antique stores, restaurants, the Monterey Bay Aquarium or wide ocean views along the rocky shore. Choose from 16 homey rooms and suites in two turn-of-the-century buildings, both on the National Register of Historic Places. Some offer a romantic fireplace and private porch. Days begin with a gourmet breakfast, evenings bring a wine and cheese reception, and freshly-baked cookies and cold milk are offered before bed.
Highlights

  • Complimentary gourmet breakfast
  • Daily wine, tea and cheese reception from 4-5 p.m., plus evening milk and cookies
  • Historic bed-and-breakfast inn with free Wi-Fi
  • A short walk to the beach, shops and restaurants

Rooms
Just 16 Victorian-style rooms and suites at the intimate Pacific Grove Inn feature brass beds and printed wallpaper to create cozy accommodations in the main building or a second one adjacent. Curl up in a fireplace room or one with a private patio, porch, balcony or private entrance. Views of Monterey Bay in select rooms add to the romantic, serene ambiance. Sink into premium bedding with triple sheeting, watch a move on satellite TV, connect to free Wi-Fi and store goodies in the fridge. Bathrooms boast heated towel racks, hair-dryers and the Gilchrest and Soames bath collection.
Features

On the National Register of Historic Places, Pacific Grove Inn was built in 1904 and 1908 by Sea Captain Frank LaVerne Buck and Apothecary Joseph Tuttle. Still charming today, the Inn also takes pride in its efforts to be an eco-friendly boutique hotel and practices green hospitality behind the scenes. While weighing the options of nearby golf, attractions, shopping and nightlife, guests are content to relax with a book or page through complimentary newspapers in the comfortable living room. Find private on-site site parking and citrus-infused water, gourmet coffee and herbal teas available all day.

Romantic getaway

Great location, an easy walk to anywhere in PG and close to Monterey and Carmel. Room was spacious and comfortable. Breakfast was great and the wine reception was a nice touch, although it would have been better if it lasted 2 hours. We struggled to get there by four. All in all, a wonderful stay.

Nice day away

All in all it was a nice place to stay. Staff was great, the breakfast was good, room was clean and smelled fresh, my husband obedience the new tempurpedic mattress and parking was very convenient. My only negative comment is the place needs some sprucing up. With everyone painting furniture these days, it wouldn't take much to breath some new life into the place.

Charming Victorian

This is a charming B&B, set close to the canter of Pacific Grove, near Monterey & Carmel & the golf courses. Each room is uniquely decorated & names. The breakfast offerings were hot & delicious.

Sweet place for a weekend away

I unfortunately only stayed here 1 night but when I checked in I wished that I was staying longer. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful, the room was so adorable with super comfortable bed, the towels very soft, nice clean bathroom, and even a balcony! The cooked to order eggs benedict in the morning was AMAZING. My only complaint was that the walls were rather thin so I was awoken early in the morning as someone was packing up to leave and having a conversation. To somehow mitigate that would have made it an allover perfect experience.

Restful stay

This is a well-appointed, well-run property; breakfast was excellent; bed was a premium make. Our room was large and comfortable although the color TV was ancient. The property is neat many Pacific Grove amenities although not within easy walking distance of the ocean. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The late afternoon wine and cheese reception is a nice touch.

Pacific Grove Histroy

We went there for our anniversary. The room we stayed in was smaller than we expected however, we stayed there for the sight seeing in and around the area so not a major issue. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was the highlight of the hotel stay and the happy social hour was average. The hotel could use some upgrades such as flat screen T.V's since the old VCR tapes they had for lending were not too appealing

Gently aged Victorian

We chose this hotel for price and location and were not disappointed. It is a very nice, not luxury accomodation, but it has all the elements for a comfortable stay. It is within two blocks of great shopping and a short hop to a wonderful ocean/beach walk.

Birthday getaway

The room I was put in was very small and no tables could fit in it. There was only one chair so you had to sit on the bed. The breakfasts was great and staff was wonderful.

Just Okay

We loved the ambiance and the location. Parking space is a little tight and the room including the bathroom is so tiny (there's no room to put your toiletries while getting ready). Will probably not return, will look for another accommodation next time.
