Stayed here towards the end of a 3 week driving holiday of CA for 2 nights. Our route took us from Santa Monica staying over night in Cambria along the stunning highway stopping in PG before heading back to SF. There are quite a few places within close proximity on the Monterey Peninsula (Carmel, Monterey etc) so it quite difficult to make the initial decision on where to stay. We’re glad we chose PG but spent time most of the other towns in the area. PG itself I found to be a sleepy little town with plenty to keep us entertained for a couple of nights.
The Pacific Gardens Inn is located sort of on the outskirts of the town just over the road from the beach, to get to the beach you need to walk for about 5 mins through another hotel and conference place which is pretty sizeable. The Inn itself was great for the price we paid, although in my opinion although the rooms were clean and very spacious they could do with being redecorated as our room was looking a tad dated and tired, the fire is a nice feature with wooden logs provided and easy to get going as gas is also piped in. The staff were very pleasant and the cheese and wine in the evening was a nice touch and a chance to mingle with other guests. The breakfast was adequate and inline with other places we stayed in CA that included breakfast in the rate however the American style breakfasts of sweet pastries etc is way too sweet for me early in the morning, and at many time during our trip would have killed just for some none sweetened bread to have some toast!!!
Excluding the beach and the near by seafood restaurant there isn’t anything else to my mind that is within easy walking distance of the Inn but the town centre is only aprox 5 minutes away in the car where there is a selection of restaurants, cinema etc.
On balance Pacific Gardens Inn is a great place to base yourself to explore the Monterey Peninsula or chill out on the beach for a couple of days.
