"Nice historic B&B close to great amenities"
We stayed two nights on our way back to San Francisco after a week in Yosemite/Kings Canyon. The hotel is a beautiful old building which for the most part has been very nicely renovated and furnished, The staff were excellent and friendly and the service was exceptional (turndown service with chocolate and a rose) as was the breakfast and afternoon wine/snacks. Our room seemed to have been recently redecorated. The only issues were a lack of bed headboard (very strange) and only two of the windows could be opened. One of those had a broken sash cord so it would not stay open. I understand these old homes need lots of maintenance and in the scale of things these are minor issues in a very comfortable and pleasant stay.

"First time at a B&B (maybe the last)"
Room pictured on webside not what it was. Disappointed especially since it was Mother's Day weekend. Wasn't told the room was being renovated until I e-mailed them after our stay and asked for an explanation. The afternoon wine/hors d'oeuvres, tea and cake was nice as was the breakfast. Staff was great. But still....

"Nice Bed and Breakfast in a quiet area"
WE spent our 61st wedding anniversary there and found it to be very comfortable and quiet. We had stayed there before and enjoyed it very much. We will probably stay there on future occasions. It is close to both Monterey and Carmel. The staff were very pleasant and helpful.

"Perfect B&B in great location!"
We had a perfect stay at the Gosby House Inn. The staff was extremely friendly, the room was very nice (stayed in Room #5, it has a fireplace), and the breakfast itself really hit the spot. There is even a great cafe right across the street. Highly recommend this place for a nice and affordable weekend.

"Everything was awesome, except the bed"
Everything was so awesome, the room, the privacy, the food, the service, the special touches, and more, and we would be back but for whatever reason the bed did not work for either of us and we didn't have a good night's sleep. It was I think a little too firm and a king bed would have been nicer.

The Gosby House was absolutely delightful. Old and quaint, located in a nice neighborhood that was easy to walk with fine restaurants nearby. The other guests were friendly and sociable. The food was perfect for the guests. I loved my stay and will book my next stay soon. The only thing I could ask to improve was the attitude if the help. I had ordered breakfast in bed as a treat to myself, and was greeted with a sharp manner and scowl by the person who brought it up. Not fun to wake up to, but the front desk staff were wonderful.

We stayed in the Gosby Room #11. Nice room. Exactly like the picture. Enjoyed the yummy desserts at night. Enjoyed the turndown service in the evening. The breakfasts was just ok. Overall, a nice and friendly place. Walked across the street for dinner at the International Cuisine, don't go there. Bad food. Loved all the antique shops nearby. I would stay here again.

"Clean, Comfortable and Close to the Beach!"
We wanted a nice bed and breakfast inn. I was very glad we chose Gosby House Inn. In fact, when we left my 2-year-old said, "Want to go to Gosby!" We had a great time relaxing. Our vacationing style is explore the city and enjoy the room. We don't try to do too much each day. We visited Monterey Bay Aquarium (very close ~1 mile away). The room we booked had a comfortable King size bed, fireplace, TV, balcony, and bath tub. We used all of it. We also enjoyed the breakfasts each morning and the fresh-baked cookies and snacks in the afternoons. On our last day, we walked to the beach (~4 blocks). Yes, we would stay there again!

"Children!"
Everything was great....until we heard the children...and heard the children! Late at night, and very early in the morning we could hear or were awaken by children. It was our anniversary and pretty sure we outlined this when making the reservation. After walking and seeing the sights on our first day, we were exhausted and looking forward to our very private (and expensive) suite. Shortly after calling it a night, the children voices started and kept up. Likewise and continuing, we got to look forward to the children voices starting around 5AM. At breakfast and the evening "cocktail" hour, the little one were permitted to finger the breakfast foods or roam and get underfoot. Not a relaxing or romantic weekend!

"A blast to the past in Pacific Grove."
We stayed 3 nights in October 2013 and had a wonderful time in a yellow Victoria bed & breakfast hotel. The food was excellent with neat dining areas and a fireplace. There was an evening snack with red wine and white wine and sherry afterwards with cookies or sweet treats. Our room had a fireplace and was nicely furnished. The staff were very attentive and friendly. Best of all we were on Lighthouse and centrally located to all the restaurants, the ocean, and the other attractions. We did Carmel for shopping, food and drink, and the ocean for a day and were only a few minutes away from the hotel. We even got discount tickets for the Aquarium for 2 days and had a blast in Monterey shopping and eating at a restaurant with a great view of the ocean.

"If you like old houses..."
It was a pleasant stay. The b'fast offered a good variety, and there were wines and spirits available (though personally could not handle more drinks after lovely meals). I wish the decors could be less fussy. I wish the shower space could be a bit bigger, and I wish the wash basin and adjacent area in the room could be roomier. A very walkable town and the pathways along the beach were delightful.

"Great location for a get-away weekend"
One of the best features of this B&B is a location in Pacific Grove close to the ocean with beautiful vistas and animal life and a variety of very good restaurants and shops. One can walk a few blocks to the beach and there are miles of paths and roads that extend in both directions. The Monterey Aquarium is within walking distance. The B&B had a nice ambiance. Our room was quiet and cozy, just what we wanted.

"Very Nice Old Victorian"
We had a smaller room upstairs and it was very nice. They are redoing an old Victorian next door so we heard some of the construction noise but it wasn't all that bad, that is why the four. Gosby is close to dining and a few blocks walk to the beach. Breakfast is vegetarian so if you like bacon, ham or sausage you won't find it on the menu. Nice afternoon wine layout. I would definitely go again but would opt for a larger room on the lower level.

"B & B Downtown Pacific Grove"
The location of the Gosby House is wonderful -- steps away from the shops and dining spots in Pacific Grove. They provide a good breakfast, and so-so wine in the afternoons. The room was disappointing, however. It is very tired-looking and needs some updating. The walls are thin, and we could hear the gentleman next door snoring.

"More like a Hotel vs B&B"
My expectation about a B&B is that the owner or manager engage with their guest. This never happened. Stayed behind the desk & never engaged with their guests. Asked to make dinner reservations, they never followed up - had to make it ourselves. Will probably not come back here.

"Very pleasant B&B"
Overall, a very nice place to stay a few nights. Clean and comfortable, with a very old-school vibe (could almost be a parody on a stereotypical B&B, think Fawlty Towers, but with good service!). The breakfast is good, afternoon snacks and wine very nice, and the evening sherry is a nice touch. The WiFi signal in our room was difficult to connect to, but that was about the only downside (aside from having to lug suitcases up a steep and narrow staircase, but that's to be expected in an older house, although worth a note of caution for potentially less mobile travelers). Would stay again.

Within walking distance of Pacific Grove Lover's Point, the Monterey Aquarium and even the 2 mile walk to the Monterey Fisherman's Wharf was doable. The B&B staff very helpful - they had discount tickets for some of the nearby attractions. In addition to the nice full breakfast, snacks and wine were served in the afternoon.

"Sweet Stay"
When I checked in the lady who I think runs the place showed me to my room and around the room. She tried to show me how the fireplace worked but seems the guests before me had broken it and she was nice enough to offer to discount my room $25. But I already pre-paid so she said I can have the bear on my bed which they usually sell for $35. She was genuine and courteous. Great stay. Wouldn't have needed the fireplace anyway since the weather held up. And the hot breakfast was a bonus. delicious oatmeal, fresh fruit salad and a very tasty quiche! I'd visit Gosby again for sure.
