We stayed here on route from Santa Barbara to San Francisco. Cambria is a lovely little town with some great little nil nak type shops. The Little Sur Inn is in a lovely location right on opposite the beach. On arrival we were greeted by Kate on reception who was very friendly and got us checked in quickly. The rooms... More

We had an ocean view deluxe room with 2 queen beds for an overnight stay on our way up from LA to San Fran. It was just lovely, the room was huge with 2 large beds and a dining table and chairs and very large bathroom with separate shower unit. We also had french doors opening out onto a small... More

We have been coming to the Little Sur Inn for the last 10 years for our anniversary trip, but we can no longer recommend it. While we still enjoyed our stay, but between the increased prices and the cut backs in service, it is no longer a deal. They no longer offer afternoon snacks, or complimentary movies to play on...

This place had amazing views (from a sea view room) however the accomodation was limited (ie no air con), there was few places to eat nearby and the breakfast very basic. Having said all that I would return in a heart beat, but this may have been swayed by waking up to humpback whales near the unspoilt shoreline when there.... More

Room was clean and spacious with a lot of attention to detail. Could have done with air-con, but they did say it doesn't usually get so hot. Continental breaky supplied. Right next door to very popular restaurant so could put our names down then go 'home' and get ready...others queued for up to an hour and a half!!

We stayed here one night while drove from LA to SF. Booked perhaps the best room (only one what was left) of the inn. Excellent room, ocean view, jogging trials, bath and shower - all what you need after 6 hours drive. Staff was helpful, polite and busy. Even all these wonderful things I believe it is over priced, at... More

The Little Sur Inn is right on the ocean, just across the street is the crashing surf of the Pacific Ocean, but the whole vibe is relaxed, laid-back, quiet and romantic. Moonstone beach beckons for strolling, beachcombing for moonstones, and quiet relaxation.Our room was lovely, clean, nice electric fireplace, updated bathroom, comfy bed, nice Continental Breakfast, quiet. Very romantic. Get... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in two rooms, one with a full ocean view and balcony and one partial ocean view. The view from the first room was magnificent! The rooms themselves were of an excellent standard, beautifully clean and contained all the amenities one would hope for. The location next to the cliff-edge boardwalk was great for getting... More

We spend one night at Little Sur Inn as part of our Highway 1 trip with our two teenage girls. We had booked a room with ocean view and we certainly got that. The room had a balcony facing the Pacific ocean and the view was breathtaking. The room was huge with a fridge, microwave and a dining table. The... More

We spent one night here on our way from SF to LA. Our room was very clean and spacious. Beautifully tiled bathroom and hardwood floors in living area. Perfect location to beach and beautiful sunsets. I was concerned about no AC but there was a portable fan in the room. I was very impressed with the breakfast….a good variety of... More
