Pet friendly hotel review: Pacific Gardens Inn

Monterey

Divider

TravelDogWe didn’t have great high hopes for the hotel in this area because the Asilomar Conference grounds have a reputation for being rather grubby and seriously bare bones: bed, lamp and table.

We were so pleased to find that the Pacific Gardens Inn was much more welcoming than the stark lodgings I’ve heard described and the pricing was even more reasonable than most! Win-win. Because of all our travel, we are pretty price sensitive.

Our room had both a fireplace and popcorn popper, which we loved, but quickly realized that Huffle was against them both with a vengeance.

He loved lounging by the fireplace until he realized what it was for, then he couldn’t press himself against my legs hard enough. It was too late at that point, we were committed to the fire, but

You should be aware that the walls are relatively thin if you’re easily disturbed. Our neighbors had a barker who would announce the arrival or departure of anyone passing by our doors, but it didn’t bother us. The human neighbors hushed their pup when she started up so she wasn’t constantly barking the whole time, and occasional barking is fair enough when you have dogs.

They had one table on an outdoor patio so we took breakfast al fresco with Huffle, just the way he likes it, sharing the table with an older couple and their dog. I personally don’t tend to socialize much but it was a good way to get a seat and get to know some fellow travelers briefly. They, and we, think this a great bet for the Monterey Bay Area.
