Okay place, just not what I wanted. I guess you run that risk when booking through Hotwire or Expedia and allowing them to choose your hotel at a reduced rate. As a business traveler, I was looking for more of a conventional hotel, not a B&B. Well maintained, but old and you can't take the old out of the building... More

We are a national historic landmark built in 1889 so we definitely don't fit the conventional hotel category :-). We are more of a "grandma's" house category. Thank you for your honesty. More

We stayed one night in one of the Cottages which has a bedroom and living room with a pullout. Everyone was very friendly, they poured a healthy glass of wine at cocktail hour, and there were more breakfast choices than expected. Parking is free, and it's just a couple blocks to the small downtown in one direction and the harbor... More

As one of the few Bed and Breakfast's that welcome families with smaller children we do our best to make sure the cottages feel like home. I'm glad you were able to enjoy your time at the Centrella. We love to have families staying with us. More

This was a charming B&B with better-than-average amenities: a beautiful garden, a luxuriously comfortable bed, and a breakfast menu changed daily with local, fresh ingredients. We enjoyed out stay and would be happy to return.

We take advantage of our local farmers market every Monday and snag the freshest ingredients so that we can provide a delicious breakfast. What better way to get fueled for your day of hiking, biking, shopping or just relaxing. Thank you for sharing your experience. I hope we get an opportunity to have you stay with us again. More

We stopped here during our road trip along the coast. We had stayed here before and had really liked the atmosphere of the place. The B&B is situated in an old Victorian House, very centrally located. You can walk to the little harbour, or just go up two blocks to have dinner. The free parking was very nice. This time,... More

Centrella Inn is big enough to have some privacy, but not so big that one gets lost. The room we had was delightful with two chairs tucked into a windowed alcove. The breakfast is easily the best we have encountered at a B & B. We were given a menu that listed several choices; all we tried were excellent. A... More

We are unique in that we are a Victorian home that is considered small for a hotel but large for a bed and breakfast. That gives us the advantage of being able to provide private retreats while nurturing the feeling of being in a traditional bed and breakfast. I am glad that you enjoyed your time with us. I hope...

Our stop in Pacific Grove was part of a 3 week motorcycle trip through northern California and this was as far south as we traveled. Pacific Grove is located on the Monterey peninsula shared with Carmel by the Sea and Monterey. The inn is right in the heart of town, one block off the main street with several good restaurants...

We have stayed here 3 times, most recently two weeks ago. My wife, 2 daughters and I always stay in one of the cottages. It is very nice because the girls can be girls (15 and 13) and not disturb any of the other guests. I think the 1st time we came they were about 10 and 8. Our cottage... More

Lovely inn located within walking distance to restaurants, shops, and beach; very cozy setting and feels like home. The inn offers excellent breakfast options. The staff was very accommodating and took care of us. When we arrived we noticed our room did not have a television, so we were able to get an upgrade to a suite for just $75... More
