My spouse and I stayed at The Centrella Inn back at the end of June/July for 3 nights. It is a beautiful old building with lots of charm that was previously a mission. We received a very warm friendly greeting when checking in. Everyone was so pleasant to speak to, Shannon, Honey, Kim Marie, and the owner. Everyone was very... More

I grew up in PG not far from the Centrella Inn. My wife and I feel the need to come back to PG a few times each year. Once we stayed here we've been back 3 times. It not just the location but the feel and comfort of the inn, like home. The staff is very friendly and helpful with... More

This is a pleasant place to stay, very near to both Highway 1 and the 17 mile drive. It is also just a few yards from the sea with a number of restaurants nearby. The staff were friendly, the food was good with a welcome drink and savoury nibbles. Coffee and tea were also available 24/7. The only downside for... More

Booked via the visitor centre on the day of arrival and we were pleasantly surprised by how nice the Inn was. It is a historic hotel and has been kept in this manner although does have modern conveniences, such as Wi-Fi. We enjoyed the wine and nibbles offered in the early evening, and the breakfast was good. Room was on... More

In keeping with most of the area, it's a lovely old house, with old style bathroom fittings and big old beds. They bake their own delicious scones each morning (together with the other breakfast which is also great) and serve a glass or two of wine each evening. There's a fabulous garden with a bird who comes to collect his... More

This was our second time staying and again it was very nice. Our room was on the second floor overlooking the street. Very quite as it was away from the checking counter. Even though the house is old we were not ever disturbed by anyone walking by either from inside or the street. Great bed very comfortable. They had a... More

Hopefully by the time you come back and see us all those little repairs will be taken care of. We can't wait to show you our... More

I must start by saying that my husband and I love historic hotels and antiques and this was just the place for us. From the moment we walked in and smelled the large vase of lilies I fell in love with this place. The lobby, seating area in front of the fire is very inviting. They have books to read... More

It's a great location, close to the ocean and at walking distance of the aquarium. the rooms are basic - no TV and no AC. Tiny bathroom and no television. But the atmosphere of the hotel makes everything good. Breakfast is wonderfull!

In keeping with the Victorian era late 1800's style we do not offer TV's in our standard rooms. We do provide free internet to all rooms and we have TV's in our suites and cottages as a way to mix old world charm with new world technology. Thank you taking time to share your experience.

The Inn is a very nicely kept up Victorian house and cottages very close to downtown Pacific Grove and local attractions. We had a lovely time there and would stay there again. The room was very clean and well lit on the second floor (we stayed in the main house). The bed was comfortable and our room was surprisingly quiet.... More

Let me start off by saying that staying in Monterey can be crazy-expensive. Especially staying just a couple of blocks away from the ocean like this B&B is. The price here is great and I would not hesitate to stay here again. Let me give you the pros and cons: PROS - Great location (although it would be a very... More

Thank you for taking time to share your experience. We are in the process of remodeling most of the bathrooms so that they will have nice tiled showers instead of the old fashioned claw foot tub and shower. The first room to be renovated is room #22. Please ask to try out that room the next time you want to... More
