Room was nice and spacious. Staff was nice and hospitable. They even cleaned our car windows in the AM! Shower wasn't too great, but there is a low-flow head due to severe water restrictions. Decent continental breakfast. I would recommend this place

I chose this place as a stopover on our drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles. It was also close to Hearst Castle. It was a pleasant surprise to find such a beautiful place. The room we had was nice and comfortable. In the morning we were supplied with a very nice continental breakfast. The big surprise was finding that... More

We booked one night at the White Water Inn, and were very sorry we hadn't planned to stay a few more! We had two rooms, one on the front with a patio and hot tub, and one next to it. Both were generously sized. We loved sitting in the hot tub in the evening until the sun went down. Everything... More

We have been going over to Cambria for 40 years and have stayed in many of the hotels. Recently we stayed at the White Water Inn on Moonstone Beach Drive and were very happy with our stay. The employees we encountered could not have been better. Also, it is on Moonstone Beach which is right on the ocean. The only... More

We've been coming to the White Water for 22 years! Love the continental breakfast delivered to our room each morning. It's quite, serene and the views are amazing. The perfect place to relax and renew.

Fresh baked cookies, clean your car windows, continental breakfast delivered to your room at time of your choosing, and the boardwalk right across the road for spectacular views and sunsets are a few of the things to love at the White Water Inn. I wanted to stay longer to relax and be pampered a bit. Anxious to return!

Lovely lovely location. Staff very helpful, kind and friendly -especially considering they must be asked the same questions repeatedly. Made the stay very nice. Nothing special about the rooms considering the high price for a room. Light continental breakfast brought to eat in room. Basically coffee and muffin and banana. Main complaint is overpriced for what it is and what... More

The Inn is so quiet & a wonderful room was ours. Step out our door & the ocean & tidepools are right there. Mark is a very kind & thoughtful manager as is all of his employees. Breakfast brought to our room & we watched the staff clean the ocean mist off of our car. Cambria is a lovely small... More

We received a warm welcome from Alex, front desk, who provided us with loads of recommendations and general information about the area. Our queen room was cozy, clean and quiet. Breakfast; fruit, pastries, coffee and juice delivered on time each morning and the staff even cleaned all the windows on the cars every morning. Nice personal touches including the chocolate...

We were arriving late but Mark ensured we got settled in well. Directed us to town where we had a wonderful local take out pizza. (The place was closing and they squeezed us in.) Mark also provided DVD of Big Sur and movies for my children to watch before bed. The next morning found the staff cleaning off the guest's... More
