Well what is positive is the location- just across from the ocean. There was a refrig in the room and it was clean. However I suspect there were code issues- like the smoke detector sitting outside the room! Bring slippers as there is only painted wood floor- no carpet. Holes in the wall and a hard bed. Don't think we... More

My husband and I arrived at 4 pm, check in is 3 pm. I was told he didn't think the room was ready, after speaking with someone he gave me a key. We parked in the parking lot which by the way is very small. We went into the room, I was going to set my purse down on the... More

Very average rooms. Office should be open for breakfast at 8.00a.m we were informed. No persons in offices at 8.30a.m we departed with several other couples. Telephoned later to complain but appeared not interested. Looking around the area much better value than THE MARINER'S INN

Pousada razoável. Paramos apenas para dormir. Desjejum é fraco. Os quartos são individuais. Há estacionamento gratuito. O que vale a pena é a localização (de frente para o mar) e o preço. Reasonable Inn. We stopped only to sleep. Breakfast is weak. The rooms are individual. There is free parking. What worth it's the location (facing the sea) and the... More

I had read reviews on this place. We were only in town for one night and nothing was available that was reasonable. I booked anyway. This place could use help from Hotel Impossible. Now, it was not a total super dump, bed was actually comfy and we did get a good night sleep. For a one night passing through town... More

I don't usually post reviews, but this room got under my skin. I've stayed at several motels in Cambria over the last 20 years, but the Mariner's Inn might be the lowest bang for your buck. First of all, some tragic designer who thought they had a knack for the industrial look removed the carpet of an old motel and... More

Now it's not extravagant or elegant, but it's clean with charm and character. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is directly across from the beach and boardwalk along the cliffs, so absolutely stunning location!!! Our room was small with a large tub and a fireplace in front of the bed. Very clean and worth a fun little stay-especially... More

We stayed one night here on our way down to LA from San Francisco, taking in the coastal route and all it's sights. The staff are very warm and welcoming. The room could use some upgrades but it was ok. Since it's right by the water, in March, we found the air to be damp, and the room was the... More

Very nice location, excellent for morning walks along the beach. The staff was very friendly and the room was ok but looked better in the pictures. It smelled kind of sketchy and the front door didn't feel very safe. Not really worth the price, but you pay for the location I guess.

The Mariners Inn has all of the basic accommodations one requires. We requested an iron and ironing board and they brought them to our room. The room and bathroom were clean and we were able to get a good night's sleep; it was nice hearing the ocean as we dozed off. The floors are a bit noisy as guests walk... More
