I wish I could give The Centrella Inn more than 5 stars! Authentic Victorian building with all the amenities, very clean, great staff (thanks, Kimmarie!) and located within an easy walk of the shops and restaurants of Pacific Grove. Our room was beautifully decorated (Room 1) and we did not hear any loud noises, traffic (what traffic? It's a tiny... More

The woman who checked us was snobby, not helpful, and actually made us feel unwelcomed..The room itself was not good, uncomfortable bed, quiet except for a very noisy family going to breakfast before 8 am. The room was "clean" but do not look close at the piles of dust along the baseboards, the warped wood counter and the stained carpet... More

This is a great place for a getaway to the Monterey Bay Area. The historic victorian is very well kept and clean. Being an old Victorian the rooms are on the small side which is to be expected. However there was plenty of room for my wife and I. There is an armoire which has plenty of room for anything... More

Convenient (small menu breakfast) cooked to order, and bagels, toast and scones were also available every morning. We stayed 3 days and this location was a great choice.
