Lovely Inn in Pacific Grove. Welcoming inn keeper Sam. We enjoyed the 5pm happy hour with complimentary glass of wine and nibbles. Chatted with a lovely couple from Philadelphia on all sorts of world matters. The only down side was that the rooms were quite warm, but we opened a window and all good. Very clean and tidy

Not what we expected. Advertised as a Victorian inn. No antiques mostly fabrications. Appeared run down. We paid for an upgrade w a sitting room. The rooms were too bright in the morning. The sun and gulls woke us up at 6 am. No parking close by.

I booked this hotel thinking it'd be a beautiful romantic experience but I was a tad disappointed. The victorian-style Hotel looked good in the picture and I chose it because I read rave reviews about breakfast so expected it to be excellent but it was average. Yeah you have a big choice but it's nothing special. Also there are 8...

What a charming location. The inn is quaint and maintains its character from days gone by. The rooms are small so leave your big suitcases in the car. The bed was comfortable. Parking is a bit of a challenge. Would certainly come back because you have a short walk to Lovers Point walk which will take you right to cannery...

Centrella Inn is on the Historic Register. It was definitely a fun place to stay. We were there for 3 nights and loved the idea of being walking distance from the ocean and from good dining. Breakfast was very good. The staff is very friendly and pays attention to the clients. The room was a bit small, but the bathroom...

We really liked this old BnB that dates back to the 1800s. The breakfast was good and the staff were very friendly. The location is ideal with the ability to be able to walk to the beach and all around the downtown area. The common room has board games and books for patrons to enjoy as well a fireplace with...

We had a lovely time at the inn. I was solo in one of the Victorian rooms with a super comfy bed. My friends had the room overlooking the garden and loved it. The inn provides wine and cheese in the afternoon so we had a chance to meet other guests. When it is warmer out I imagine you could...

We stayed at Centrella for three nights at the end of our trip and enjoyed it very much. Our room, was a small suite, which was very comfortable. Obviously it had once been two rooms with a bathroom in the middle. There was a king bed, which was very nice indeed, loads of towels, replenished each day. Staff are friendly,...
