We had a third floor room which was quite nice considering the age of the building, the bed was actually the most comfortable of our vacation and there was a nice, modern shower in addition to the tub shower. The staff were pretty nice for the most part and helpful. There were cookies and a wine hour though we didn't...

This 1889 Inn, a former boarding house a block from the sea was the highlight of our trip to Pacific Grove in January. A delightful Victorian home, cozy, with creaking floors, roaring fire, treats and wine and interesting guests to converse with in the lounge. The breakfast was served after a menu selection and the rooms had décor with period...

We stayed three nights at the Centralla on the recommendation of a friend. It was all he promised. Our room was a cottage with a separate living area, which gave us room to spread out, read, watch TV whatever without being in each other's way. The bed was comfortable, the cottage clean. It is a bit old, but the minor...

This is a hard review to write. We really enjoyed our stay. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Breakfasts were quite good with a varied choice of items. We had cottage #3 which could be easily upgraded to 'charming'. The bathroom was fine overall. There weren't enough hooks or places to put toiletries, which is all to...

A bit like stepping back in time! Lovely, quaint and very welcoming. Comfy beds and great breakfast. Thought the complimentary glass of wine and nibbles a nice touch. Would definitely go again. Town very quiet at night but stunning scenery close by.

This is an historic landmark from the late 1800s so the inn itself is big and old. There are many rooms, making it feel more like a hotel than a classic Bed and Breakfast. It reminds me of B&Bs in the UK, with period pieces of furniture, creaky floors and worn carpets. There has been a clear and successful effort...

While the Centrella Inn is historic, that might mean an automatic "pass" to excuse some things based on its age. Problem is, it really needs some TLC attention and updates. Reasons to stay here would be two: location and a great breakfast. Other than that, nothing would really draw us back to this place and we can't recommend it. We...

I brought my mom here for a birthday trip in December. The inn was beautifully decorated for Christmas (and smelled great too). We got a very reasonable rate on a two night stay. Included was a glass of wine each evening and made-to-order breakfast each morning. The breakfast room is charming with a nice view of the garden courtyard. The...

Dear Guest, Thank you for taking time to provide a review. Yes. This is the best time to visit with great rates, fewer people on the Peninsula, easy access to restaurants and wonderful weather for long, quiet and serene walks along the coastal trail just down the Lover's Point.

My wife and I spent a most enjoyable time at the Inn. The location is in a quiet neighborhood within walking distance to numerous shops and restaurants. A short drive takes you to downtown Monterey Aquirium/Wharf, Pebble Beach 17 Mile Drive, Monarch Grove Butterfly Sanctuary, and a rugged coastline. The accommodation includes an excellent complimentary hot breakfast prepared from a...
