We enjoyed the sitting area in room 14, the beautiful grounds, the large shower, and the variety of food at breakfast. Scott was wonderful about helping to navigate us to the inn, accommodating us during check in, and finding a local restaurant that would deliver after 9:30 p.m. Thanks Scott for going the extra mile for us.

Thank you for your kind review of our Inn.

Bed wasn’t comfortable. The front desk guy seemed very pushy that we make it to the check in on time because it seemed like he had to go somewhere. When we called and told him we were on our way and our eta. When checking in he was denying guest access to the fireplace because it was almost the end of his shift. In the AM the waiter forgot our breakfast and had to come back and ask us our order a second time after waiting a half hour. Only stayed for one night but wouldn’t stay again. Only plus side to this $300 night is they had cookies and tea. That’s about it. For the price was expecting a lot better.

Quick Weekend getaway

Pros: The breakfast
Cons: Nightstands on both sides of the bed. There is room.
Location: From the beach to the restaurants. All you do is park and walk to plenty of things to do
Room was nice but not luxurious. Bathroom and bed are updated. A wild windy rain storm that night made the old windows rattle just to remind you you're in an old hotel. The breakfast is a nice surprise with a sit down menu and very friendly service. You're not fighting the crowd to scrap the bottom of the egg pan.

Close to beach

Pros: Friendly personnel with useful suggestions in areas of dining and activities
Cons: Breakfasts and afternoon wine were nice touches; however, somewhat underwhelming
Location: Beautiful coastline, nearby Cannery Row (marvelous aquarium) and Monterey Fishermans Wharf (old town)
I enjoyed being able to park my car for the entire visit. Pleasant walks to Lovers' Point, Cannery Row and Old Monterey. Nice restaurants in Pacific Grove. Weather was beautiful. Monday Farmers Market one short block from the inn.

Nice visit to Centrella Inn, Pacific Grove, CA

Pros: The LOVELY dining room with it's grand windows and fireplace, YUMMY morning breakfasts, with numerous selections and delicious scones.....
Cons: The bathroom in the "suite" cottage, please enlarge. Take out the sofa-bed, too, and replace with a day-bed.
Location: Easy walk to Pacific shore, restaurants, laundromat, and quiet town. Easy access to Highway 1, Cannery Row and aquarium (Monterey), and Carmel.
This is a PRIME location for enjoying the SPECTACULAR Pacific coastline. A very short walk to a beautiful beachy park and grand view of the ocean...and to the quiet "main street", boasting a VERY clean laundromat and cute restaurants. Pacific Grove was a GOOD surprise! The Centrella Inn was charming. The main house VERY Victorian and pretty, with a GORGEOUS dining room, having HUGE windows for viewing it's lovely garden and squirrels. Morning breakfasts were AWESOME! Don't pass up their scones!!! The only drawback was the bathroom in our cottage...MUCH too small and VERY tricky maneuvering around the tub/toilet configuration. Also, NO place to HANG clothes. Cupboards, yes, but NO closets. I slept in the sofa-bed, and when it was pulled out, there were too few inches between it and the fireplace. Maybe a DAY-bed (rather than a couch) would work better??? Otherwise, a great place to stay!
