“Amazing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012 via mobile

It was the best bed and breakfast we've ever stayed in. It' s very clean and familiar. Wine and Chees and Breakfast was delicious. Staff was very very friendly! The atmosphere ist amazing and you really feel home. You have the possiblitiy to drink cool water, coffee and tea 24 hours per day. It's very close to the bay and few restaurants. It is bit noisy at the nigth because of the fact that it is an old house. We would absolutely stay here again and again. Thank you so much Centrella Inn.

Nice location, the girl on the front desk was a little inattentive (when compared to the other hotels we stayed at during our holiday). Gourmet breakfast wasn't really gourmet but was ok. The room was old fashioned and small. The bathroom really needed some decoration. Generally a good hotel.

We enjoyed one night at this lovely old inn. The staff were friendly. We had a front corner bedroom and found the room clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. Complimentary glass of wine in the evening. I loved being able to walk to Lover's Point by the water where I spotted a whale! There is a fantastic walking/bike path along the coast at this point. A beautiful area of the country, I can't wait to return one day and stay another night!

This is a lovely B & B inside and out. Decor was true to the period and nicely done. Staff are friendly, grounds are beautiful, our room (one of the less expensive ones) was spacious and comfortable. Having said that, I did have a few problems: We stayed in one of the front rooms (top floor) and there was significant traffic noise, which luckily died down overnight. But there also was a light problem -- street lights shined in through the blinds on our windows and interior hallway lights were surprisingly bright and seeped in as well. I am a light sleeper and had significant trouble staying asleep because our room was so light. I also would recommend against a room on the ground floor as our floor creaked. Finally, although breakfast was good (mainly a choice of several crustless quiches), it wasn't special like in some B & Bs I've stayed at over the years. Nothing I would call gourmet. And I was surprised that there was no fruit other than the single orange slice placed on our breakfast plates. Despite all this, I would stay here again, but maybe not in a front room.

Room Tip: If you're a light sleeper, you may want to avoid the front rooms.

I loved staying here......not only were the accommodations clean, comfortable, and attractive; but the staff was wonderful! The wine and appetizer time from 5:00-6:00 enabled people to get together and meet while tasting a wonderful wine from Sonoma. The location of the inn is perfect......park your car and walk to whatever attraction Monterey has to offer. I will definitely return!

We stayed at Centrella for one night while in Pacific Grove. The Inn is beautiful. We each had a complimentary glass of wine and some snacks in the garden area upon arrival which was welcome after a couple hours in the car. Our room was very nice and comfortable. Breakfast was a choice of main breakfast and then scones, muffins and other goodies. Cookies were found later in the day for a nice treat. Not too far of a walk to the beach. Would stay again when in the area.
