You can tell that at some point, about ten years ago, somebody cared about this place. The furnishings are quite nice, it's well designed and doesn't feel like a cheap motel. It's also dirty though, and worn and old. It has little to recommend it except the price. And the reception closes at 8pm, so good luck if anything happens.... More

I had stayed at creekside nearly ten years ago and found it I clean and reasonable hotel. This last sat 11/14/15 my wife and I stayed again one night. When we entered the room we noticed a strong cigarette odor. The carpet floor was dirty with large dust bunnies under tv armoir visible as well as small children's toys and... More

CreeksideInnCambria, Owner at Creekside Inn, responded to this review

Mr. Smario had booked two rooms for himself and a "good" friend to attend a winemakers dinner that he was quick to point out he had also paid for. After being in his room for more than three hours, he phoned the front desk to say he was having difficulty accessing the internet. Not another guest on a sold out... More

Room 11, a balcony room, for which we paid extra, was OK, no more than that. I cannot criticize the place on most aspects, but it has the appearance and feel of a place that is coasting and what it offers is falling behind the price it is charging. Check out their web site and perhaps you will see what... More

We stayed at the Creekside in on our way home from San Francisco in May and the rooms are old and in need of updating/remodel but the price isn't bad, the rooms are clean and we loved sitting on the balcony and listening to the birds and frogs. So we came back in September for the Pinedorado Day celebration and... More

Creekside Inn is a budget motel in Cambria but it is hard to call it a budget hotel considering the price that is charged. Here's why: All the walls were scuffed and needing painting., especially the bathroom. There is no AC and it was barely cool enough to sleep by 10:00 with the windows open. Unfortunately the neighbor immediately next... More

After reading all the reviews and prices of various places to stay in Cambria, we decided to try Creekside. The room was comfortable with a nice balcony for 2 overlooking the non-existant stream below but the bathroom sink area in our room was almost non-existant as well. There is no refrigerator or microwave but they do provide a coffee pot.... More

I stayed here a few years ago and I don't recall it being so run down. I stayed here September and was very disappointed. The bed was way too soft, the furniture dated and the bathroom shower was unpredictable as far as temperatures. It would have been nice if there was a small fridge and microwave in room too. I'm...

I stayed 2 nights with a friend while on vacation. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The room was big and clean. The inn was pretty full but very quite. It's within walking distance of the historic section of town. There is NO A/C in the room. Even though it was unseasonably warm at night we slept with the... More
