Hotel on Beach - Romantic??

Could someone please advise where to stay in Pacific Grove... on the beach, quiet, quaint and special for an Anniversary? Possibly one with a nice restaurant?? Thanks for sharing.

Most of the inns in PG are across the street from the beach. I can't think of any place that has a restaurant on-site, maybe PG knows of one. The majority of the lodgings serve breakfast, but no restaurant so to speak on-site. We like to recommend The White House for a nice dinner in the area.

The Whaling Station and the Sardine Factory, very close to Pacific Grove in Monterey are also nice choices for good meals. We also like the Duck Club at the Monterey Plaza Hotel & Spa, maybe you would want to consider a stay there, the property is located over the ocean with beautiful views, it is our favorite place to stay in the Monterey area. :)

Syrah is right--I don't know of any accomodation in PG with an on-site restaurant. BUT the B&Bs across the street from the water (Green Gables, Seven Gables, Martine Inn) are all an easy walk from downtown, where you'll find excellent food at the Red House Cafe, Robert's White House, Max's Grill. For an anniversary dinner, Robert's White House would be perfect.

Seven Gables is a lovely Victorian mansion which is, essentially, on the "beach", with only a street between you and said beach. I think it would be perfect. And, as someone mentioned, you can easily walk to great restaurants. Google it and see if you like it.

This Kentucky couple returned last week from a wonderful two night stay at the Seven Gables Inn. We did not want to leave. All the rooms have ocean bay views; and the entire place is classy and opulent. They offer outstanding breakfasts.

We splurged and ate at Roy's for a sunset dinner at Spanish Bay. A fantastic, memorable meal. We also enjoyed First Awakenings visited by Rachel Ray in 2004. The crepe's are awsome as well as the rasperry/coconut pancakes (one is enough). We want to go back to Pacific Grove.
