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

Me and my boyfriend really enjoyed our stay in this cozy old Victorian styled room. They even surprised us with birthday decoration's in our room. The breakfast was yummy. Freshly baked scones were delicious. The glass of complimentary wine was also great. The location is great as well just in walking distance of the aquarium and resturaunts. We will be... More

What a find! We loved this place. Stayed in the courtyard bungalow- beautiful. Stunning little courtyard too! Lovely breakfast! And fabulous wine hour! We only stayed 2 nights, wished we'd stayed longer! Pacific Grove is a lovely place to vist, small but lovely beach. Lovely resturants nearby.
