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

This was a lovely old fashioned hotel with lovely staff, very helpful and polite. Wine was served each evening with nibbles, which you could either take to your room or enjoy in the lounge chatting to other guests, which we did. It was very peaceful and ideally situated to wander to Monterey and Cannery Row. The breakfasts are wonderful with... More

This is a cross between a boutique hotel and a B&B. As a family with 2 teenage daughters we stayed in one of their 2 cottages. Whilst not as roomy as we expected (the photos on their web-site make them look much roomier) they are very well appointed. The staff were lovely and very helpful. The breakfasts are absolutely delicious... More

We just finished our stay at Centrella in room 21. The staff was wonderful and attentive, however, our room was less than acceptable. Upon arrival I found a dirty hand towel under our bed. The dust layer around the edge of the carpet was thick. And seating space advertised on their website was a joke. A chair on each side... More

This bed and breakfast is in a Victorian house, and you can easily walk from there to the Monterey Aquarium, and to several fine dining spots, as well. The staff was VERY helpful with suggestions. And the food was delicious!

The key to having such a helpful staff is to only get locals. They all live right here in Pacific Grove and love to brag about their city and all the wonders of the Aquarium and Cannery Row. Thank you for taking time to share your experience. More

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

The beauty of the Monterey Peninsula is that all the cities are near each other. That's helps to make it easy to get around. The walking trail at Lovers Point, just 2 blocks from our doors, will take you to the Aquarium, Cannery Row and Fisherman's wharf ( That's 3 cities right there). I am glad you enjoyed your time...

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

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
