      The staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast cook was very accommodating. A very pleasant stay overall.

      The Pacific Grove Inn is located across the street from the Police and fire departments. The parking lot is difficult to maneuver because of the trellis structure.

      Breakfast was a little bit in adequate, quiche was cold. Bathroom counter space was limitted.

      We loved the cozy, homey atmosphere. This was our first time at a b & b and didn't quite know what to expect. They made us feel welcome and explained everything they offered from wine tasting in the evening, to the library of movies to take to our room. Being in an gorgeous, authentic old house in beautiful Pacific Grove/Monterey area on a rainy night and sunny day with a fireplace and private bath in our room, who could ask for more? The price was very reasonable for our midweek stay. Wish we could have stayed longer, but will plan to do so in the future,

      Breakfast cooked in the morning was very good. Only little negative if I have to mention one, were the muffins. They were hard and didn't seem fresh,

      This was our Second time staying a Pacific Grove, and were in the Tully House next to the main Buck house this time. Fantastic Room 17 with a Fireplace, queen bed, a cozy room and double doors out to a little balcony with Bay view and private Garden below. Love the staff here as always, they are friendly accommodating and nice. Many amenities from wine and cookies to breakfast to conversations with other travelers if you feel social. Always a pleasure to stay here and mot definitely looking forward to staying again, I kinda want to try every room in this fantastic Inn, so much flavor in each!

      It was a short walk to the waterfront from where I saw Sea-otters. For those who like to walk it provides easy access to Monterey and its Aquarium and the associated Cannery tourist shopping area otherwise take the car. The area is a beautiful town of old style timber houses with very little major development - I hope it stays this way. I thought that the features like the wine and nibbles at 4pm and cookies at 8pm were a great way to meet the other residents and to garner information on travel tips or life in the USA and to provide a friendly home environment.

      Nice room, cookies at night, wine and appetizers at 4, friendly staff, great breakfasts, and close to downtown PB for restaurants, and close to beach for walks. Great price so my company won't balk.

      I would put shades on the room windows where I was (room 4 I think). B/c the street light was a bit bright. The remote doesn't work to turn on or off the TV so you have to get out of bed when you're falling asleep to turn it off. And then there's something weird with the VCR and Tv so sometimes the satelite doesn't work and you have to turn the VCR on and off to get the TV satelite to be reset. It's annoying.

      The PGI is a lovely & quintessential B&B. It has a warm, cosy old world charm and a welcoming and friendly atmosphere, whose staff are excellent and provided 1st class service. PGI has a very friendly and homely touch to it providing pleasant niceties such as cheese and wine at 5pm and home baked cookies at 8pm for the guests as an inclusive part of the service. The living flame gas fire place in the rooms made my stay all the more cosy, atmospheric and homely. I have been fortunate to have travelled all over the world and the PGI provided one of the most enjoyable stays I have ever had. Paul O. A Scotsman abroad

      It is an adorable Victorian just slightly off the main drag in Pacific Grove. The staff was very kind, especially the young guy who ran the b&b in the evenings. Breakfast was delicious, the afternoon wine and snacks were a fun way to meet other travelers, and the cookies and tea at night were a great way to relax. The town of Pacific Grove itself is a perfect marriage between almost overly chic and touristy Carmel and overly kitschy and touristy Monterey.

      The beds and bedding need some updates and out bathroom area had very little storage space. One of our curtains also lacked a black out shade behind it, which was a bit of an annoyance in the morning. Honestly, new pillows and a small shelf in the bathroom area would have done wonders.

      We loved the area, the staff, and the history of the two homes. We would definitely return and stay here again.

      The parking lot seems very small and difficult to squeeze into each designated space. It should not be that hard to pull into a parking space....

      Really appreciate the friendly help, restaurant recs, and your putting the blow up bed in our room for our grown son. Loved your B and B and will recommend to friends.

      It was clean, cozy and we felt well cared for. Staff was very attentive. Breakfast was very good with a buffet style cold section and a made to order hot option.

      Needed some table top space in the room. to put things down on. Front rooms are on a main street which can be a little noisy but it wasn't too bad.

      Nice rooms, good breakfasat

      not enough places to put things (like make up bag, brushes, curling iron, etc. Need another table to put things on. Also TV power doesn't work with remote. You have to get up and go to TV to turn it on.

      The staff was very friendly and kind. The afternoon between 16-17 they serve great wine and delicious cheese. And they serve a very nice and tasting breakfast. The dinningroom was very nice and cosy. Room clean, nice size of both room and bed.
