We arrived on Friday a few hours before check in and were warmly greeted by Donna, who gave us a tour of the inn. She was very nice and checked us in early. We decided to go into town for a late lunch prior to getting our room and Donna made several great suggestions. We arrived back at the inn around 3:40 pm and was shown to our room, the Ocean Mist. The room was very pleasing to the eye and was spacious and clean. The large window with the ocean view was spectacular. Over the next three days, we enjoyed the wonderfully prepared breakfast each morning. The wine and cheese get together in the afternoons were great with a great selection of different cheeses, crackers, wine, and fruit. Every night upon returning to our room, we were to find a few Dove Chocolates with our turn down service. They even printed out what the next days breakfast would be. They served cookies and milk in the evening. We have stayed in several Bed & Breakfast's all over the U.S., and the Seven Gables Inn is by far the best we have experienced. The entire staff was superb, the service was excellent, the inn was spectacular, and the food was fresh and delightful. We had such a cozy stay, we are planning to return in January or February next year. No complaints other then we didn't stay longer! Do not pass up this Inn, anyplace else won't compare. See you in 2014!

We had high expectations for the Seven Gables Inn and they were certainly met. Our room was very nice, and the bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in. The breakfast both days was excellent, the staff was atttentive and friendly, and we enjoyed the evening wine and cheese, plus the cookies served at 8 p.m. The location is outstanding--right on the harbor and not far from Cannery Row in Monterey. We loved the area, and had two excellent meals at restaurants within walking distance. This is a first class B&B.

This is my wife's favorite place to stay in the Monterey area. It is a lovely Victorian home (actually two homes now and several outbuldings). It generally is very nice. The rooms are lovely and this time we stayed in one of the better view rooms. Breakfast is always good and for a B&B the rooms are fairly quiet. Staff was mostly nice and they have all the little perks--wine and cheese every afternoon, cookies at night, a nice note and chocolate bar acknowledging our anniversary. About the only negative is they have little reminders that everything is for sale--the robes, pillows, even the sheets. It detracts from the overall atmosphere. They could stop that and just tell people who ask that you can buy the sheets if you want.

... are the three most important things in real estate, and this place has all three. The location across the road from the bay just can't be beat. The breakfasts are good, but the real value here is the exclusiveness of the location in a town that is exclusive to begin with. There is some occasional noise due to car stereos from some of the less classy tourists passing by, but the cool ocean breezes and the excellent ocean views from the breakfast room make this the premium place to stay in Pacific Grove.

This was our second time. The first time, we stayed in the Carriage House room. This time it was not immediately available, so at first we had to "settle" for the Gables Room, which is right at the top of the house. The ceilings are low and angular - it's like a child's fantasy playroom - but if you mind your head you'll be OK. We were afraid that the room might be too hot - few places in Pacific Grove have air conditioning, and this one does not - but the many windows allowed a pleasant breeze to blow through, and let in the sound of the ocean at night. The view over the bay was premium. The king bed was wonderful.

The charming Laila is in charge of the Inn, and she runs a tight ship. Thankfully.

Room Tip: Some rooms can be seen into from the ground floor of the Inn, so choose carefully or close the drape...

From the room, to the grounds, to the staff and the breakfasts and afternoon wine and cheese, the SGI nails it. We were in the Rocky Shores room the first weekend in August. the room has spectular views from two windows. We left the windows open only to fall asleep to the waves hitting the rocks. The bed was great and the room well appointed. Breakfasts were wonderful, loved the grits and french toast. The staff was friendly, professional and responsive. I can't think of what they could have done better.

It was really wonderful I was very satisfied during my stay. The view was excellent ,the rooms were very comfortable .whenever I have time I want to go there and recommend you to stay there especially for your private days. The breakfast and wine and cheese at 4 was perfect. It wont be the last , two nights werent enough . The wines which I bought were delicious. I hardly advise you to spend some time there and share amazing view with your friends.

Just returned from another wonderful stay at Seven Gables. Have family in the area, so we've stayed there a half dozen times, at least - twice a year for the past 3. Never disappointed. Accommodations are wonderfully comfortable; incredible location with views from every room; fabulous breakfasts that never disappoint; and the staff is absolutely first rate!

Room Tip: There are NO bad rooms here. Have stayed in several. All are well appointed, quiet, private.
