We stayed here for one night on our drive from Los Angeles to San Francisco. A beautiful location overlooking the beach, helpful staff, free wine tasting and breakfast, cosy room. Wish we could have stayed for longer!

My daughter and I enjoyed this charming hotel on moonstone beach. Our room was two queen suite with an ocean view and fire place. We actually used the fireplace the first night due to overcast weather. The staff from front desk to housekeeping were friendly and professional. Grounds nice and clean. The wine and cheese receptions in the evening and... More

My husband and I come to Cambria, twice a year. We work very hard for our money, and are far from retired. I am the one who looks for the best place to stay, for what we want. We are completely familiar with the area and hotels. We have had a very tough year, and an opportunity to get away... More

My wife and I were on a six day driving holiday up the Pacific Coast Highway from L.A. to San Fran when we stopped in Cambria and found the Pelican Inn right across the street from Moonstone Beach! Great rates with cozy rooms and the price of the room included and evening wine and cheese featuring wine from a local... More

We often visit Cambria but it was our 1st time staying at the Pelican Inn. The room was absolutely beautiful and the staff was wonderful. The beds were so comfy and I am a very very picky person where I stay when it comes to class and location. It was our 1st time visiting with our twin daughter and they... More

Very clean, comfortable, nice motel style resort. No elevators to second floor units. Staff is polite and friendly. Okay wine and cheese setup in evenings and nice free European style breakfast. Pool was nice, back units are close to Highway 1 - so there is some auto noise. Overall, great stay, a bit pricey. No cell service (ATT) and wifi... More

We decided to splurge and get a 2nd floor room with an ocean view, directly across from the beach and Boardwalk. It was perfect! Everyone was very helpful and so nice. The breakfast buffet and wine and cheese reception was very good. I wish we could have stayed longer! It was a great way to celebrate our 40 anniversary!

Beautiful hotel all around, from the decor to the wine and appetizer greeting, and delicious hot breakfast you couldn't ask for more, but there was! Located directly across the street from an unobstructed view of a gorgeous beach, complete with local surfers, board walk, and amazing tide pooling. There was even a friendly family of squirrels that kept us entertained.... More

My husband and I stayed here for one night on a short anniversary getaway. The room was absolutely amazing, and the staff couldn't have been more friendly. The wine happy hour was very nice and the hot breakfast was great--such yummy waffles! We only wish we'd been able to stay longer!
