The stayed was a disaster since we arrived, first the man at the front desk told us that kids are not welcome (despite that our reservation said 2 adults and 1 child). He was really disrespectful and saying that it was Booking Web page fault and doesn't have to do with the hotel (if the hotel had a no kids... More

I would like to address the issue about the concern that you mentioned about the Front desk saying kids are not welcome, It was explained to you that we do have our family cottages, and kids 10 and above could stay with their parents in the main building, which is clearly mentioned in the website, as you had booked through...

We have stayed at this inn twice. It has a nice breakfast buffet, along with hot breakfast you can order off a menu, and wine in the afternoon. It is an old building with quirks that come with an older building. For example; our shower worked fine but we couldn't get hot water out of the sink. This particular visit... More

We stayed at the Centrella Inn for three nights and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Breakfasts were delicious and the complimentary wine and nibbles at night were delicious. We were there with another couple and so enjoyed our stay. Within walking distance to the ocean.

I'm so thankful we stumbled across the Centrella Inn! We stayed in room 14, a Victorian Premier Queen room, on the second floor. Comfy bed, lovely updated bathroom, nice sitting area, good size flat screen TV. Room faced the front of the hotel. Quiet, never heard neighbors or much street noise. Downstairs there is a nice sitting area with a... More

For years my husband and I have visited this adorable inn close to Lovers' Point, for anniversaries, birthday trips or just a relaxing getaway. The rooms are tastefully furnished, the gardens are pretty, the breakfast has several options, coffee is good, and the location is great. Close to ocean, downtown, Asilomar and a short driving distance to Carmel and Monterey.

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.

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.
