The Green Gables is exactly what you are hoping it will be. Beautiful, quaint, quiet, and in the perfect location. You'll be in Pacific Grove (the nicer part of Monterey), a couple hours south of San Francisco. The Green Gables has that period feeling of a quaint english seaside country inn -- with a touch of California coastal flair. Location: It's a beautiful old Inn literally across the street from a picturesque beach on Monterey Bay. Extremely walkable throughout Monterey and Pacific Grove. We didn't use our car the entire time we were there. They also had bikes we could borrow for a lovely trip along the coast towards Carmel. The Inn and the Room: It's very period. One part Downton Abbey, one part Cannery Row, and just a touch of your great grandmother's favorite sitting room. Expect a quaint old-style experience, not a hotel room with modern amenities. We found it to be a comfortable and very relaxing getaway from a fast-paced life. The window was open when we came in, and the sounds and smells of the ocean greeted us. The room we stayed in was small, but comfortable. And had a nice view of the ocean through the window. The bed was very comfortable, and the sheets were noticeably high quality. The room and fixtures were more 1880s, and the bathroom was very 1990. We stayed in the Jennifer room #5 Parking: Street parking outside the Inn. The staff gave us good directions on where (and where not to) park, and we didn't have any issues finding a spot. The Experience: Great, caring staff. It's a very small place, so expect personalized service. We were greeted when we first arrived, and often interacted with the staff for the afternoon wine and snacks, breakfast service in the morning, and other items like borrowing bikes for a short tour along the coast. Everyone there was always friendly, attentive, and seemed to enjoy working there. A pleasant experience all the way around. There was always fresh coffee available in the dining room, and the afternoon had a grab-and-go wine, cheese, and cookie service. The County of Monterey had just reinstated a mask mandate due to COVID when we were there (November 2021), but the hotel handled this well and it wasn't intrusive (you just had to wear a mask when in the common areas). Things to do: Green Gables is on the coast, about halfway between Cannery Row in Monterey, and the great downtown district on LIghthouse St in Pacific Grove. The Inn is about a 10 minute walk to the aquarium. This is the major attraction in Monterey, and it's definitely worth visiting if you're there. You'll need advanced reservations and tickets to get it, so be sure and plan ahead. The rest of cannery row is a bit touristy, but it's entertaining to stop by for a bit. But after you do the tourist thing, you'll find yourself gravitating more to the coast and the great restaurants in Pacific Grove. Where to eat: For dinner head to Pacific Grove, and not Monterey. This is where most of the best (and more high-end) restaurants seem to be. We had a stunningly good meal at Wild Fish, but it was tough choosing from multiple great options on Lighthouse. The staff at Green Gables also had great recommendations for places to eat. Also if you're ready to skip the included breakfast at the Inn, it's worth a short walk to Monterey for First Awakenings. Summary: We had a lovely time, and highly recommend Green Gables. They also have a sister Inn (Gosby House) a few blocks away near the high-end restaurant district on Lighthouse St in Pacific Grove. If you're not dead-set on staying across the street from the water, this is right next to all the good local restaurants. We certainly hope to be back soon, and thank the team at Green Gables for a wonderful weekend getaway.

Pleasantly surprised!

You definitely want to reserve a top floor room. Being an old house, you will hear everything from the guests above you. The wine and cheese and cookies was a nice touch and the breakfast was tasty. Staff was nice. We would return.

Green Gables is a MUST stay in Pacific Grove

After a stressful drive, we arrived at Green gables and were treated to wine, cheese plate and cookies! Hearing and watching the ocean waves right across the street was something you don't want to miss. Our room was large with a comfortable King bed and a jacuzzi tub. The hot breakfast was scrumptious! We took full advantage of the evening treats and sat right across the street above the ocean! A great stay when you want a quiet and relaxing place to enjoy Pacific Grove, Monterey, and Carmel!

Fantastic Inn with views, dog friendly

Reviewed 12 july, 2021

We loved Green Gables and especially the staff. Could hear ocean at night. So,e rooms have partial, some full views. We liked Carriage House #7, which is only one that allows dogs, could see ocean from living room with fireplace and from the front patio. It was huge, with jacuzzi bathtub, Parking is easy to find. Pacific Grove is much prettier, has more interesting old houses & architecture, better restaurants (Wild Fish, Passion Fish), than Monterey which is very touristy.

We love staying in the Balcony Room at Green Gables. It is a beautiful Victorian home with a very relaxing and quiet atmosphere. Their breakfast is always very good and there is plenty to fill you up. Beverage service is out all day and wine and cheese in the afternoon. A wonderful place to walk along the shore and close to walk into an area of town. A good value. We love it.
