Wonderful getaway in quiet, secluded area, but close to beach and beautiful walk through grounds of Asiilimar. Most rooms have a fireplace with wood stacked and ready to light. Not fancy but warm and comfortable with extremely, helpful/friendly staff and owner willing to accommodate in every way. The rooms are much bigger than found in most motels/hotels and even include...

Pacific Garden Inn is a nice retreat to get away from it all!! If you're looking for "fancy" this isn't the place for you!! If you like a country like cabin feel you will love this place!! Rooms definitely need some updating, but they are clean and comfortable!! A popcorn maker is a nice surprise in your room too!! There... More

The owner Robert is friendly and helpful with local details. Beach is a few min. walk across the street and through the sand dunes. Very relaxing. Spend a few hours in the area and your blood pressure will be very low. This is not a fancy upscale city type hotel. It is a small family run business that makes up... More

This is a cute place to stay. It is walking distance to the beach. Sunset is gorgeous. The downtown area is close by but don't recommend walking. There are a few restaurants that is walking distance. There is a wine/snack hour which was pleasant. Staff is pleasant. I would come back here.

Stayed for one night and it was pretty much the only place we could get due to the annual classic car show which ramped up the price. Nothing overly wrong with the hotel it just needs some updating. It felt like somewhere from the late 80's/early 90's but it was clean and comfortable. I think we'd been spoiled with previous... More

We were pleasantly surprised at the wooded surroundings of this hotel. While the room was not upscale, it was spacious and comfortable. The outdoor hot tubs were just what we needed after a long day of sightseeing. Also, the other travelers we met at the hotel were very nice. We enjoyed talking with people from around the world while we... More

It was a great experience. I will say at first when I seen one of my rooms (2 queens room) I was disappointed because it was highly rated and I was expecting a more updated room. Its a bit old but clean none the less. Then as I toned down the raging thoughts in my mind I got to see... More

Room was clean, friendly place to stay, nice warming fire in the main lodge building. Close to Asilomar Beach for great walks. Breakfast not our cup of tea, but the coffee was good. All-in-all a reasonably-priced abode when staying in the Monterrey area.

This is a charming, clean property with a spacious suite (living room, 2 bedrooms, kitchen). We also has a fireplace and popcorn machine with popcorn. It was a quick walk to a nice beach and a great breakfast was served in the morning and wine/cheese /salami in the evening. Their is even a guest laundry.

We recently spent 2 nights at Pacific Gardens Inn for our family holiday. Let me first say that the rooms are indeed a bit worn (but very comfortable). However, that is largely outweighed by: Good price compared to other inns Great friendly staff Great location in fantastic Pacific Grove which is a community that immediately appealed to us Very nice...
