We were greeted by a snarky but helpful woman. The price was appealing and there was a lovely garden area in the back of the motel.The room was sweet and comfortable. That was until I tried to take a shower and the temperature and the pressure kept changing. I went in the morning to try and tell the gentleman of... More

In a word, NO. But since TA wants more than two characters, here: the good. Location--walkability to downtown, restaurants, Fiscalini Preserve (the non-beach part), quiet. The bad: no coffee maker. OLD. No exhaust fan in bathroom (hey owner, air freshener needed, please). No phone to call the desk. You can go get coffee in the office, but weak coffee and... More

We found this quaint roadside inn to be charming, furnishing and decor are faded almost retro but the accomodation was very clean and comfortable, breakfast was a slice of madeira cake and coffee which was fine

We enjoyed our stay as the rooms were clean, bathroom had everything we needed and we didn't expect any luxuries. We didn't get them. All we got was perfect service, cheap room close to the town centre (in the centre actually), coffee and cake for breakfast and a great and relaxed atmosphere. I would go back if I was in... More

... to town. Walking distance to some good food and at least one (Junkgirls!) awesome shop. Stayed one night, driving down from Northern CA as first leg of a 2 week road trip. Staff was friendly and helpful, room was older but quite pleasant, I get the feeling this property is being maintained at status quo.

My family and I stayed here and we really enjoyed it. Lovely location, creek side inn, near lots of shops and restaurants. The friendly staff invited us for snacks and beverages upon arrival. Clean rooms. Nice nature trail behind the motel, we really enjoyed seeing the birds and other wildlife on the walk. Very reasonable rates if you're looking for... More

I stayed here a couple of weeks ago after a few previous visits. I like the ambiance of the lobby and the rooms are simple and clean. Its proximity to the east village area of Cambria is a plus also. Unfortunately, it's impossible to tell what room rate you will get, despite their rates being listed on their website. When... More

Stopped here on our way down the Pacific coast highway. Very clean,quaint motel in a quiet setting. The suites are large and have a small deck overlooking an adorable bird sanctuary. Other rooms appeared to be nice,basic 60s type lodging at very reasonable rates. The most friendly staff ever. Great coffee and coffee cake in the lobby.

I have stayed here numerous times in my travels and will not stay anywhere else in Cambria. This is the cleanest and has the most curteous staff in town. Rooms are exceptionally clean and the location and price is perfect. Stay here as you will love it also.
