After being stranded overnight on the 101 on our honeymoon the owners of this lovely boutique hotel went above and beyond to be helpful. Not only did they not charge us for the night we missed but made us very welcome when we did finally arrive!! The room was large, spotless and lovely, the breakfast was fresh and plentiful and...

If you love looking at the ocean, this and Moonstone Landing are the places to stay. The Oceanfront rooms cost more, but have incredible views. We experienced one disappointment: They stopped serving afternoon snacks. Supposedly, this is to save water in washing dishes. But, if true, they could just use paper or plastic plates. I hope management is reading this... More

This hotel is clean and comfortable with friendly staff. We were not fortunate to get a room with a view as ours overlooked the car park, however this did not bother us as we were only stopping 1 night. Did think the breakfast could be vastly improved but then I suppose you get for what you pay for. This was... More

Disappointed in room 1 king bed for 3 adults. Must have shoes on in room otherwise your feet get black from the dirty floor. We had a 'partial' beach view but was okay. Be sure to ask for front rooms with balcony for beautiful beach view. Parking is minimal. Really cute & quaint.

Excellent place to stay. Clean and new and cozy. The afternoon cocktails were nice and the breakfast was continental but way beyond expectations. Fresh and a special touch. Bed was comfortable and it was a wonderful place to stay.

We only stayed overnight, but enjoyed the location and the friendly welcome. It's a stone throw away from the ocean. Beautiful spot to enjoy the sunset. The room was spacious and clean with a little bit of ocean view (ask for the front rooms with a balcony).

We booked online before leaving San Francisco on highway 1. Best gamble we took on the whole hotel. The place is so cosy, rooms are huge and we had a view of the ocean. Very relaxed and easy going buffet breakfast. We tried are hardest to book in for a longer stay but it was booked out. Definitely will go... More

If you like glitz and glam and want eggs easy over, lazy under with bacon for breakfast, then give this one a miss. For us, this was idyllic and doesn't get any better. Friendly staff, continental breakfast with pastries, toast, granola and porridge. Rooms that are spacious, comfortable and with a high standard of fittings. No air con, but the... More

My husband and I just spent 5 days at the Little Sur Inn and we could not have been more pleased. We have stayed in Cambria several times in the past but this was our first experience at the Little Sur. The staff was extremely accommodating and very personable. The room was large and airy with a very comfy bed,... More

We take an annual trip down the coast to celebrate our anniversary, and this is one of our favorite places to stay, usually for 3 nights. We have had both the full ocean view and partial view rooms. This time we reserved a partial ocean view room, and requested a room as close as possible to the ocean to get... More
