Stayed 3 nights in mid-Feb 2016. Every aspect of the hotel is first class. Great access to walking along the ocean on a boardwalk; close to my favorite sea food restaurant (Sea Chest); staff is great; breakfast buffet is very good and all staff interactions were excellent. Highly recoommend

Staff was excellent~ rooms incredibly comfortable~ nice decor~! Wine bar with fireplace a nice added benefit with small bites of food~~ perfect after a long day. The only minor point was there was no view out our window.

Reserved the nicest room in the house King suite quiet. Unfortunately the room they gave me faced both the local road and PCH highway. When I asked for a quieter room they said all the upgraded rooms face the road. I chose to down grade to a room which was under a horrible sounding air moving system. To be able... More

We traveled here for a quick night away. The hotel is in a good location. You can walk to Moonstone Beach or to the village. Check in was very prompt. The property is very quiet. Rooms are spacious. Beds are very comfortable, with some of the most comfortable pillows we have ever slept on. When you open the slider, you... More

This was our first stay in Cambria, and after looking at reviews for other hotels, this one fit our needs the best. I wanted a room with a King bed, jacuzzi tub and a fireplace, and this had it all. It was one of their more expensive rooms, but it was located just off of the lobby. The hotel was... More

My husband and I stayed mid-week on our week long honeymoon. Loved the location just a few steps away from the beach. The room was spacious, great beds/linens. The view wasn't amazing, but we didn't really spend much time in the room. The morning breakfast was great. Just perfect before heading out. Would stay again if we travel to the... More

We "stumbled" across the El Colibri at Cambria after San Simeon offered little more than a few hotels and even fewer shops. The idea was to stay a night - but we extended to three nights because the room was very comfortable, the view of a junction with Highway 1 at the northern end of Cambria was attractive; breakfast good...

We were happy that we caught a 40% off deal but it was still a tad pricey for the area. We had a corner suite that had the oddest layout I've ever seen. There were many, many strange angles in this suite. And the noise from the HVAC system down in the garage area made an otherwise quiet room somewhat... More

El Colibri was our second stop on our honeymoon, and we couldn't be more pleased with not only the hotel but the staff. They upgraded us upon arriving to a room with a fireplace and jet tub. We loved the upstairs jacuzzi with an open view of the stars. My husband loved the steam room! He used it again the... More

I visited Cambria in Sept and stayed here overnight. This place was wonderful. Great service, excellent staff and bext of all a great room. It's next to Moonstone Beach Park and we were able to catch a beautiful sunset over the Pacific. The room has all the amenities you'd expect and more. The bar had a great selection of local... More
