Amazing time!

4.2 on September 16, 2014

Had a great time at Centrella! The location was absolutely perfect and I had one of the best scenic morning jogs I've ever had. Service and also breakfast great. Not to mention there were pastries available all day.


Centrella is a good value

3.0 on September 03, 2014

We have stayed at more expensive B&Bs in Pacific Grove and this time decided to take a more economical option. Centrella is just about 3 blocks from the water, close to an excellent Mexican restaurant, Peppers, and walking distance to downtown. The room was OK, bottom level faced the street, nice wine reception and good breakfast.


Relaxation

5 on June 13, 2014

A beautiful, quiet, and friendly place to stay and enjoy the beauty of the coast.


Cute B&B

4.6 on May 16, 2014

It was like staying at grandma's house. A little old and the room was smaller than I anticipated. But the service was great and the breakfast excellent.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for your kind words regarding our staff and chef. They love what they do and it shows. Please come and see us again if you are in Pacific Grove.


Cozy Place

4.4 on May 08, 2014

Stayed here for two nights for my mini trip to Pacific Grove to see the butterflies. It was really beautiful. They had snack time and yummy breakfast. There's a little garden out back where you can hang out and enjoy. I would definitely come back to stay if I go back to Pacific Grove. Location makes it easy to walk to everything.

Innkeeper Response
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience. I am glad you were able to relax and enjoy your time in Pacific Grove. We hope to be able to host you again in the future.


A wonderful experience

5 on October 31, 2012

We were celebrating my wife's birthday and spent one night there. Very friendly staff. They had even decorated the room for this occasion with balloons before our arrival. Totally a surprice to us!

Innkeeper Response
Your kinds words keep us motivated to provide exceptional customer service. Thank you for honoring us by celebrating your wife's birthday at the Centrella Inn.


Beautiful Pacific Grove

4.2 on February 19, 2012

We were very pleasantly surprised that the Centrella honored their Bed and Breakfast.com hot deal rate of $79. for a one night stay on Valentine's Day. The staff also came through with a coupon for a free dessert at the restaurant we had chosen for dinner that night. The lovely old boarding house is nicely restored, great location, lovely gardens. Our only negative comment would be the lack of a fresh fruit course as part of breakfast, I ordered the yoghurt and berry parfait for breakfast off a menu with several choices. The berries were frozen, defrosted blueberries and blackberries. Bitter and disappointing. This is not the first B&B we've stayed at in California without fresh fruit, and it is incredulous that with the abundance of local fresh produce, that every B&B should be using fresh fruit with breakfast.


Comfortable

4.4 on August 08, 2009

This comfortable B&B is well located to the shore and dining in Pacific Grove. The building is historic and well restored. We looked forward to the breakfast menu each morning. Staff is very helpful.


Beautiful old home

4.0 on November 13, 2008

Lovely old mansion converted to a B & B. Rooms are charming, as is the entire home. Food and service was good. Rates are very reasonable. The house, however is situated on a fairly busy thoroughfare. If you like to sleep with the windows open, the outside noise may be bothersome.


Great weekend getaway

3.8 on October 29, 2008

The Centrella Inn was a peaceful retreat for our weekend getaway! The staff was wonderful and really helpful in terms of advice about the area and in generally being hospitable. The evening appetizers and wine were a wonderful and unexpected part of our stay. Breakfast was good - service was fantastic! - but the food was not fabulous! Overall, a wonderful inn we would recommend for value and hospitality.
