The rooms are small but they are decorated with so much loving care and everything needed is available. The staff is very friendly and makes you feel welcome. Breakfast is yummy (portions are normal size) and coffee and tea are available around the clock. The location is great as well - you reach all Monterey attractions in no time. Don't... More

We stayed at Centrella Inn for 1 night, it was actually recommended by my friend who was there a month ago. The house (I can't even call it a hotel) is a very lovely place, which cozy and very welcoming for any kind of travelers: young and older persons. They knew we were on a honeymoon and upgraded our room... More

Thank you for honoring us by staying with us during your honeymoon trip. I am glad you enjoyed the garden room suite, it is one of our most popular rooms. I hope we will get a chance to host you again, maybe on your 10th wedding anniversary ;-) Best wishes. More

The inn is lovely and the staff very friendly. The inn provides a breakfast and wine hour which are fine but miss just that little extra you desire and expect from an historic B&B. The location is great.

We spent two nights here and found it to be very comfortable. The bed was very comfortable and while the room wasn't very large, we weren't spending a lot of time in it anyway. It is not trendy or fancy but rather in the mode of a hotel that is in it's second decade. I think the one thing that... More

I agree that our breakfasts are wonderful. Don is our master chef and he is a wiz in the kitchen. He only buys the freshest produce and you gotta love his scones. We used to have curtains over the transforms above our doors but they didn't effectively block the hallway lights, so we opted to put up a heavy fabric... More

The breakfast was excellent. Some decorating touches were above average; but most decorating touches and furnishings were average, much of the room furniture had a 2nd hand appearance. Many aspects of the hotel had a neglected feel. Fire doors above stairways were all improperly held open by old-fashioned doorstops, which would prevent the doors from automatically closing in the event... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We are an inn built in 1889 that provides a shabby chic feeling by mixing antiques with a few more modern pieces. We are very lucky to be in a town where your biggest fear is running into a family of deer wandering around in the early morning or during... More

Stayed here two nights in one of the cottages. Very quiet, until the seagulls started up at dawn. My husband found the bed to be unbearable; too hard, while I found it a bit soft. He ended up sleeping on the sofa. The cottage had a bit of a musty smell. Plenty of hot water and good water pressure. The... More

Thank you for your kind words regarding our staff. They love what they do. I am sorry to hear that your husband had a hard time sleeping. We replaced our beds with new pillow top platinum Serta sleepers in September of 2013 which may account for the bed being softer than you expected. If you come and see us again,... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in July 2014. This is a very old building by US standards so please don't expect all the modern comforts.

We spent a mother-daughter weekend here and really liked it even though we are not B&B people. It is very large so if you wanted privacy in their sitting and dining room or gardensm that could be accomplished whereas most B&Bs, you have to "congregate". The breakfast was delicious although light. The evening wine reception and cookies were a welcome... More

Booked a room for our 27th wedding anniversary. The inn is a cute place with an excellent location - short walk to Lover's point and quaint village. Beautiful patio, large breakfast/lounging area and friendly staff were more of the good points.

I appreciate your honesty and thank you for bringing the food supply issue to my attention.

Warm and friendly historic home away from home. Close to Monterey Aquarium and historic Fisherman's Wharf. Great staff and excellent breakfast in a classic Victorian home. Recommend an upper floor room or one of the enchanting cottages. Very pleasant stay!
