My husband and I stayed here for a night on an anniversary road trip and the time spent in Pacific Grove was a highlight. The location of this inn is fantastic - between their adorable downtown area and the beach. Lover's Point Park is a 10 minute leisurely walk from the Centrella Inn. We found the staff very charming and...

We had a great stay at a lovely B&B cottage that was pet friendly! We had a bedroom and living room/dining area with fridge that fit our 2 kids and dog. The cooked breakfasts were delicious (eggs, bacon, waffles etc) as well as the wine, appetizers and home made choc chip cookies. The staff are all friendly and really helpful....

I am updating my review of this beautiful Bed and Breakfast which I posted while we were there. My first review was on the room 7 only, the Victorian Primier, which was very small. Maybe 10ft x 12ft and only a 2 1/2 ft wardrobe closet with one drawer at the bottom for all our clothes. We stayed for 3...

This was our second time staying at the Centrella Inn. Both were very satisfying experiences. Our room this time was The King Suite. It was nicely remodeled recently, with a generously sized second room that has a pull out couch if you needed it. The breakfast was delicious both times, with a choices of 4-6 freshly made items. The scones...

You feel very cared for at this lovely historic inn. Great breakfasts and afternoon wines. You are 2 blocks from Lovers point for great walls and 1 block away from quaint downtown Pacific Grove. Rooms are comfy. About a mile walk to Cannery Row.

Room was very nice: king sized bed and separate sitting room with TV. Breakfast was better than average, big variety, but not the best... People were very frienly, and accomodating. Best part is the location: free parking, two blocks from beach, movies, restaurants, walkable for adults to the aquarium and cannery row.

What a wonderful, quaint place! Staff, breakfast, and location was awesome! We had a room on the second floor in the front of the Inn and found it a little warm if blinds were left open because of the afternoon sun. We found a box fan in the wardrobe and that really help. We truly enjoyed our stay and would...

Historic property very conveniently located to everything in Pacific Grove. Staff was very helpful and very nice. We booked a deluxe queen but it was not available when we checked in, so they upgraded us to one of the cottages adjacent to the patio dining area.
