First I must confess I am not a B&B person but this place was highly rated and had a perfect location so we gave it a try. First off parking is free and easily accessible. Kim Marie checked us in and was as friendly and helpful as possible. The location was exceptional, one block from downtown and three blocks from...

The building itself is beautiful. As it's old you cannot expect they provide modern facilities. So before you book this hotel, make sure that you understand the room is small, water runs slowly. Besides these, everything is good. Staff is very friendly. Breakfast is super good. Rate is reasonable. Location is good too.

Our night at the Centrella Inn was intended to be a fun early Mother’s Day getaway with my mom and my seven-month old baby. Unfortunately, we had a rather negative experience. When booking through Hotels.com, I noticed in the small print of the room description that no cribs were available in the Victorian Premier rooms. My son is still small...

The inn is beautiful from the outside. We arrived way after hours and the inn keeper made sure we had a key and let ourselves in. The room was small, old and creaky, just the way an old hotel should be. It was clean and we slept like babies. It was the breakfast that was our most memorable experience at...

We looked fwd to our first weekend in Pacific Grove and Centrella Inn. But... Breakfast time: we sat out in the courtyard and were accosted by the loud DONALD TRUMP speech blasting from the iPhone of someone sitting on the porch… I was about to ask them to kindly turn their TRUMP down… when I realized it was the hotel...

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...
