On this trip out to see the annual Concours' d Elegance at Pebble Beach, we opted to stay at Centrella Inn, a charming B & B located in Pacific Grove, just off 17 Mile Drive in downtown Pacific Grove. As I read through some of the preceding comments, one thing that struck me was how many criticisms there were of... More

Originally built in 1892 and turned into a boarding house in the 60's, it has re-emerged as a B&B. Nice Pacific Grove location and a charming room. Good breakfast and wine at the end of the day. Rooms are a little smallish and very much charming. Baths are a little dated. This is a great place if you prefer B&B's... More

The Centrella Inn is absolutely charming. From the moment you walk up to the front porch to the moment you enter your bedroom, this Inn has charm galore! The staff are exceptionally friendly and very helpful, always smiling. Breakfast is amazing!!! You sure don’t walk away hungry. The rooms are roomy and so pretty. The outdoor area is also lovely....

We really enjoyed our era yay Centrella. It is a sociable hotel, you feel that people are wanting to get to know you. There is a social time every evening when complimentary drinks are served. The breakfast was one of the best we have had in California.

We booked this inn more than a month ago, booking a King upstairs cottage. Upon check in this afternoon, we were given a downstairs cottage. When entering the room, we found a small Queen bed, not what we reserved. We went straight back to the check in desk to ask about our King cottage we reserved over a month ago.... More

The room was very small and simple - no tv, no radio, no space. The property is beautiful and well-maintained but there are too many units compared to shared space which makes it feel more like a hotel than a quaint inn or bnb. Service was spotty. At the rate I was paying I expect my hand to be held... More

If you've read any of the other reviews, you know this is a very old building that has been kept up pretty well. The pros: The decor is charming, the staff are very friendly and helpful, and the atmosphere is that of a typical B&B. The location is very nice, as we walked around the town and down to the...

I stayed one night when in town for a wedding, and my room was ... a room. The size was more akin to what I'd expect from a European hotel, i.e., large enough to walk around the bed but no larger, and the appointments were almost Spartan; there was nothing like a desk, and the wardrobe closet wouldn't be anyone's...

Centrella Inn was just as I had read about. It is an older home and while it has character, it reminds you of Grandma's house-it is in need of a facelift. I think the older wallpaper and wall to wall carpet adds to that feel. That being said, it was not a bad place to stay. The best thing about... More

We thought we were booked in for 4 nights, but I mistakenly had only booked for 3, my fault. However, we thought it a bit rich to charge us a lot more for the 4th night, even though they said that our room was not booked out anyway. I sent feedback to them but it has been a big silence... More
