My sister and I have been coming to the White Water Inn for years. Each cottage Is clean and welcoming and a fireplace to make it cozy. The healing of the ocean and the air, washes away the stress of every day life. From the time that you arrive to the time that you leave the staff takes extremely good... More

My Wife and I stayed there for two nights for her birthday; December 1 and 2. We have been visiting Cambria every year for five years and have stayed at different "Corporately" owned hotels on Moonstone Beach, but this is the first stay at the White Water Inn. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were blown away at the friendly... More

We have been vacationing in Cambria for over 20 years. We have tried various accommodations over the years. The White Water Inn is the best place we have found in Cambria. The property is beautiful, the staff wonderful and the location perfect. In addition, they have animal-friendy rooms for their furry guests. You will not be disappointed if you stay... More

Stayed here for 1 night last month. Loved the cleanliness of the rooms and the room layout, it was very comfortable. Alex on reception was so helpful and charming. Breakfast was included, and delicious. We had the luxury of sitting on the bench outside our room, in the sunshine and looking at the ocean. I would definitely stay here again.

We were lucky enough to stay in one of the front rooms facing the ocean. Well worth it! The room was big, nice sitting area facing the ocean with a side door, and huge private patio. After a bit of rest and relaxing on the porch, a dip in the outdoor hot tub is a must. They provided us with... More

My wife and I love this place. Great rooms. Very friendly staff. It seems they just upgraded to nice new LCD TV's with Blue Ray players. Very nice. We love the Continental breakfast delivered to the room. The beach boardwalk is about two minutes from the room door. It is very relaxing here. Can't wait to return.

Spent two nights in this lovely inn. The room was large and clean with very comfortable beds and nice views of the ocean from our sitting area. A lovely breakfast was brought to our room at our desired hour with a nice assortment of baked goods, fruit, juice and coffee. The service is exceptional. The staff goes out of their... More
