I chose the Centrella Inn in Pacific Grove as a get a way for my boyfriend's 50th birthday. The historical structure of the inn was beautiful, and the bathroom had been recently renovated. The gardens were lovely, and it was a nice walking distance to the beach. When I called to book a room, the lady on the phone described... More

We made the mistake of reserving the least expensive room- which was not inexpensive. The room had a queen bed, an uncomfortable chair, a too small bathroom and no television. Easily the least comfortable room in our recent experience- we spend about 60 nights each year in hotels. The breakfast was excellent, but the wine service was not. Complimentary wine... More

We enjoyed a very lovely stay at this charming bed and breakfast in Pacific Grove. The rooms were clean and neat and nicely decorated. The staff was polite and helpful. Breakfast was very good, with fresh baked scones and an assortment of delicious breakfast entrees from which to choose. Early evenings were enjoyed with appetizers and a glass of wine,... More

First time at Centrella, we have stayed at Gosby house previously. Great breakfast each morning and 24/7 coffee and tea make for great conversation by the fireplace with other guests. One of the perks of staying at places like this. You meet some very interesting people. The afternoon wine and appetizers make for great conversation. However, adding some vegetables to... More

This was our 3rd stay at the Centrella Inn. I doubt we will ever stay anyplace else again. Friendly staff, nice breakfast with several choices, a glass of wine in the evening & chocolate chip cookies to greet us after an evening out. The beds are comfortable & rooms are clean. The only negative is there is a community center... More

Thank you for your glowing review. The chocolate chip cookies at night are the best. Esther makes a mean cookie dough. We hope to see you again real soon. More

We got a very good deal on Living Social, and didn't know for sure what to expect. Most reviews were pretty good. This is a lovely place, very quiet, with a very friendly staff. The place is nicely decorated in a period design (victorian?) and our room was very pretty. Decent bathroom, good lighting. Even the bedroom had good lighting... More

Took my sweetheart here for our 1 yr anniversary and I did well with this choice. The Inn looks kind of old, but its very welcoming. The staff was very warm and helped us out with whatever we needed. The room itself, was kind of small but the view was very nice. The Inn was close to a bunch of... More

Kudos to a warm, friendly staff and a charming historic facility with all the amenities. You cannot beat the location. We had one of the less expensive rooms and even it was very nice.

We stayed here for 2 nights to celebrate our 30th anniversary, in the Garden Room Suite. Overall a lovely inn, room was very clean, with an excellent location for walking to the ocean or restaurants.
