I would like to run a report with vSphere's default reporting in the GUI and would like to know how to filter just datastore info for a specific datacenter?  I would like to export a list from a datacenter that reports on specific hosts storage information without using CLI.

Your issue will be the GUI.
That faculty will be a problem based on the limited capabilities.

You can get the power CLI:

or go with a paid solution (which is pretty amazing honestly):
