The room was very clean and fresh feeling (despite its age) with a fireplace and nice view. The proprietor went the extra mile to accommodate special diets and was genuinely interested in doing so. The meeting room had a nice view and was quiet and off by itself one floor down from the main area.

The Garden Inn, just a few yards off I-40, has become our standard lodging on the second night of our drive north from Austin. This time Mirtha was away, so we were greeted by Mike in his usual friendly and hospitable fashion. After we were shown to our room, we took a stroll around the grounds, which are extensive and...

Simply a spectacular place to catch up on some relaxation and to take in all that nature has to offer. Mike was a splendid host and a pleasure to share conversation with. The B&B was expertly decorated with a slightly feminine touch that certainly added to the romantic atmosphere. The magazine selection was second to none and both my wife...

This was our fourth stay at the Garden Inn. Our reception has been warm and friendly. Our rooms have been quite good, well furnished, very clean, comfortable. Of course, the breakfast is superb! A particular pleasure has been sitting on the deck and enjoying the view. Only one warning. Monterey has only fast food restaurants now since the fine BBQ...

We've stayed at quite a few B&B's. This one is very fine. My wife and I like to take overnights on our Harley and stay at B&B's. This was our first time at the Garden Inn. The first thing that impressed was it's cleanliness, it was a spotless, beautiful Inn. Mike is a very gracious host, and took the time...

First time staying in a B&B. It really is different than staying in a standard hotel in all the right ways. Quiet, but plenty of opportunity to interact with other guests if you prefer. Beautiful views from the rooms, deck, and grounds. If you stay here, be sure to take the short walk to Bee Rock. Wishing now we would...

We had a great time at The Garden Inn. It was our first experience at a B&B and was fantastic. We celebrated our 24th anniversary there and everything was so nice...yummy food to start our days, comfy bed to come back to each night, and lots of exploring around the area in between.
