A very small Inn not far from the Hearst Estate. We stayed there in the Spring and returned once again. We elected for the oceanfront room which allowed us to keep the windows open and enjoy the ocean air and sound of the surf. The boardwalk ( not Atlantic City but more of a six foot path) along the Ocean... More

My husband and I spent one night at this cozy little Inn. We had a wonderful time and we loved Cambria. We had dinner at the Black Cat. The bed and pillows were comfortable and the sound of the waves crashing was relaxing. Breakfast was delicious. We can't wait to return!

Beautiful, clean and lovely location. Bathroom had heated floors! The bed was extremely comfortable; the room was very tastefully decorated. The boxed breakfast wasn't as good as I hoped but places in town are a short drive away. Great place for a relaxing getaway!

There are 2restaurants within easy walking otherwise you have to go into the town . As we arrived at 7pm we opted to walk to The moonstone grill after having freshened up . We went... More

This place is just the perfect little inn, location, style,comfort & price. We just wish we had more than one nights stay. We had originally booked a partial sea view & the room was really nice but as we had arrived early afternoon we had a peek in one of the other rooms not yet occupied and inevitably felt drawn...

We stayed here on the last night of our month long trip in the States, and what a way to finish! We had made our way down from Carmel to Moonstone Beach in Cambria, a beautiful drive that filled the entire day. Check in was painless and we were personally shown to our room (Aegean Room) and given a rundown... More

We absolutely loved our stay at this place. We stayed here because of the great reviews on Trip Advisor. We stayed in a room with a lovely ocean view. We were escorted to our room by the front desk staff who was friendly and anticipated any questions we may have. She also had great suggestions on dining, etc. Beautiful room,... More

Decor is inviting and up to date. Welcoming coffee and cookies on your door is very sweet. We stayed in 2 diff. rooms. Both were super clean and spacious, and we are 4 people. Loved the shutters on the windows; a nice "homey" touch. Keurig's in the rooms for your own coffee making, and little chocolates too. I don't think... More

This property is very nice and clean. We liked the location very much. The decor is nice but standard. Basically, we could have been in any corporate hotel in the world. We stayed one night and it was pleasant. I don't know if I would stay here again.
