The room was very large with fireplace, microwave and refrigerator and big bathroom with separate tub and shower.It was very nicely decorated and very clean. Moonstone Beach Drive has two restaurants that we... More

Cute cottage on Moonstone beach in Cambria, Ca. Great accommodation and service. Great walking path along beach. Two towns to shop in, good restaurants. Nice view of sunset from the room. Hearst Castle close by.

Blue Dolphin has rooms with partial and full views of the ocean. They are tastefully decorated. Windows open to hear the sounds of the waves. Across the street is an ocean Boardwalk. Breakfast included is incredible with many choices available.

Clean & large rooms and bathrooms. Very well equipped. Pleasant front desk service. Rather small hotel compared to the others on the same place: a big advantage! Nice inroom breakfast service, although it could be on request served on real dishes instead of the plastic ones.

I chose this hotel because of all the positive reviews. It was even better than expected. From the delicious breakfast delivered to the door, abundant coffee and tea, microwave, fridge, cookies, fireplace, abundant DVD's and most comfortable beds to the excellent service, I was very pleased. I especially loved opening the window to be lulled to sleep by the pounding... More

The Blue Dolphin Inn is our favorite place to stay in Cambria! We've been celebrating our wedding anniversary by staying here the past few years. We love the full ocean view, fireplace and luxurious bathroom. We also enjoy having breakfast delivered to our room the next morning and dining in front of the windows, watching the ocean.

Great location, staff, room amenities, and surprisingly great breakfast-which is included. It's right across the street from the ocean and a really good walking path. The room was very comfortable and the only "negative" is the fireplace is electric We will definitely be back.

What a fantastic hotel! Every staff member we encountered was lovely and the room itself was large, beautifully decorated, and very clean. Lots of extra touches like chocolates, robes & slippers, etc that made this so much nicer and more luxurious than a standard hotel room. The "picnic" breakfast in the morning was delicious and a unique concept. We only... More
