The hotel is very close to the coastal walking trail.

This was a very nice historic hotel in a wonderful walking-friendly area of Pacific Grove. We could (and did) walk to a variety of great restaurants within a quarter-mile walk of our hotel. The breakfast was homemade on site and the menu varied slightly each day. Fresh cookies were also available most of the day. The only downside is no refrigerator or microwave in our guest room (it is a historic hotel but wouldn't be hard to add). We'll definitely return.

Excellent staff. Wonderful grounds. Great breakfast

Great location--easy walking to sea, restaurants. Nice fireplace, too.

Enjoyed it very much. Breakfast was excellent and the location was ideal.

If I return from these 4 days of vacation with my clothes a little tighter, I'll blame it on the chef at the Centrella Inn. Well, I suppose I could have resisted the daily fresh-baked scones and full breakfasts, opting for the healthier oatmeal or yogurt and fruit, but the relaxed ambiance of this inn brought me back to a time when I imagined there were fewer rules about what was allowed to eat for breakfast. The staff was extremely gracious from the first thing in the morning till late at night, when we gathered with other guests around the fireplace with complimentary wine and interesting conversation. I highly recommend this bed and breakfast!

Very lovely inn, great location. Staff very helpful and good breakfast!

Convenient location, and a good value for the money. The hot breakfast (included) was delicious!

Nice B&B in Pacific Grove. Walking distance to Lovers Beach and Monterey Aquarium.

The location was fantastic and we would stay here again for that alone! The amenities in the room were also lovely. Had to dock a point for overall because although its a bed and breakfast, the breakfast was a bit mediocre. Small portions, basic selection, nothing special. We ended up eating elsewhere after the first morning. Also, a member of our party had allergies and the staff member taking orders could have been more accomodating, though he was maxed out on tables, so we could see why he would be disinterested in offering a solution.

We had a wonderful time here. The accommodations were great (especially the tub!), and the hospitality was simply amazing. Very highly recommended.

Beautiful room (#15). Super clean. Great shower. The breakfast and wine in the evening were appreciated touches! Easy parking.

We spent four days at the Centrella, and found the inn to be quite comfortable. We were in a fairly small room at the base of the stairs. If we have the opportunity to stay again, we would likely reserve a bigger room away from the traffic of the stairway. Old home, creaky stairs. The room was very clean, and the bed was comfortable. We appreciated that there was a fan in the room. The gal who checked us in was lovely, and gave us good recommendations for dining, and things to do. The breakfast each morning was prepared to order, and a nice start to the day. The inn was a good base to start from. We visited the aquarium and Cannery Row,, and took day trips to San Francisco and Carmel.

Bernardette and Ralph (the mangers) are excellent hosts.

We spent a long day on the road and we're greeted by a welcoming staff member when we arrived. She was warm and helpful. Her demeanor set the tone for our brief two day stay. We enjoyed the room, the breakfast and the stay.

Great location. An easy walk to the beach and town. Surrounded by other historic homes. The Inn was old yet well taken care of and the breakfast was very delicious. They have a chef making you what you order and the purportions were perfect. Great room to have breakfast in and sit by the fire with some home made scones. Wish we could have spent a week!

Centrella Inn is a quiet and comfortable Inn. The rooms are charming, the staff is very nice and professional. The breakfasts are good, served in a pleasant dinning area with windows overlooking a pretty garden and patio space. I am looking forward to another stay in this gem of an Inn.

Dear valued guests, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. It was heart warming to see your group sitting by the fire every night and enjoying new friends that you have just met during your stay at our Inn. We would like the Centrella Inn to be your home away from home. We pride ourselves with a wonderful front desk staff, caring housekeepers and our Chef Don who prepares a wonderful home cooked breakfast daily. The scones are his signature baked goods. We invite you to return again. We just get better and better! Warm Regards, Erna Clay General Manager
