This B&B is in a great location, and we really enjoyed the breakfast! It was clean, and the rooms were nice. The only thing that bothered me was that our room opened up straight right out to the lobby where everyone eats, but I will just pick a different room next time!

We stumbled upon the Centrella and we're glad we had. We felt so welcome and nothing was too much trouble. Our room was lovely, spacious, clean and full of character and home comforts. The breakfast was lovely and the surrounding area was beautiful. Would definitely visit again if we were in the area.

We stayed two nights in a charming upstairs room. The room was small but window could be opened for a lovely breeze. The bathroom was adequate but small. Breakfast service was nicely done. I enjoyed a different frittata each morning and we like getting our own coffee. There is a small garden that you sit in or enjoy a drink... More

Road trip through california and stayed in this inn on our way to napa. Nice place, great location. Big room, nice bathroom and very good breakfast. Some drawbacks: could be cleaner, nobody stays at the front desk past 7 pm and it is expensive. Overall, good, comfortable place to stay the night! Friendly staff! More cozy than the average hotel!

This inn is lovely, and located in an historic camp-related rooming house near the sights of Monterey !! Rooms are clean, tasteful; breakfast is bountiful !! Easy walk / drive to the Aquarium, Cannery Row, etc. A lucky find on our part ! Drive to Big Sur on Highway 1 is awesome. Also easy access to vineyards in Santa Lucia... More

Old, well known, well established B&B in Pacific Grove, south side of Monterey Bay. We stayed in the cottages so no comment on rooms in main House. Very friendly staff, perfectly acceptable breakfast, very good coffee. Funky older buildings w/quiet garden and a glass (or 2) of wine in the afternoon/eve. You do get street noise in the morning and... More

We've stayed here many times in the last 20 years. It's a wonderful old victorian with adjacent historic homes they've bought up and turned into cottages. We stayed in one of the cottages. It could have been better maintained (windows didn't open), but very homey, as are the public rooms in the main inn. It is within walking distance to... More

Dear Barbara, Thank you for taking time & sharing your experience. Our Inn was built in 1889 as a room & board across from the main church on the other side of the road.

We've stayed here once before and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Convenient location. Just a short walk to the ocean and several quality places to dine. It's a celebration for us, (wife's birthday), and they do some special things if you give them notice when making the reservation. I forgot this time but they brought up a complimentary bottle of wine. Nice... More

We loved our stay at this gorgeous Victorian bed and breakfast hotel. The hotel is decorated to a high standard, the cooked breakfast is excellent and the staff are pleasant and friendly. Although our room was quite small, it was perfectly formed. The 'social hour' (5pm to 6pm) is a great idea and the staff member poured us a generous... More
