Many of the previous reviews have summed up this excellent hotel. We were travelling from Los Angeles to San Francisco and stopped of at the Little Sur Inn in Cambria just by chance. The room price wasn't cheap but when we saw our room, it really was worth every penny - or should that be cent!! We had a beautiful... More

We got an oceanfront view and loved it. The complimentary breakfast had all the essentials. Using the gas fireplace to heat the room was a charming touch. The bathroom had a jetted tub and a spacious shower.

Terrific location across from Moonstone beach and the staff are wonderful - friendly and helpful. Also, next door to the popular Sea Chest restaurant where people begin standing in line beginning at 3pm. (Bring a chair and a bottle of wine for the tail-gating in line experience --- also cash, the restaurant doesn't take credit/debit cards). The rooms are spacious... More

Location across from the ocean along the walking paths is perfect. It includes breakfast of boiled eggs, cold cereals, a variety of bread types, fruit, limited pastries, and hot drinks. The rooms are fairly spacious and clean. Some rooms have full or partial ocean views. One time we had the front room, which was great! The heat is controlled by... More

Overnighted here recently during a trip out west. Got here after dark, but reception was cheerful and helpful. NOTE that they close the office at 2100 local; if you are going to be late, CALL AHEAD! Checked into a King room w/ partial beach view; much more reasonable in price, especially since it was foggy/hazy while we were there. Room... More

This hotel exceeded my expectations. The location was wonderful for the activities we had planned in the area. It is close to Hearst Castle and the town of Cambria. The room was spacious and very clean. We had a 2nd floor room with a "partial ocean view" that gave us great ocean views. The continental breakfast was generous and delicious.... More

This is a small hotel but with big rooms! Stayed here Feb. 6 2015 and had a partial view room but still had a great ocean view from my room on the second floor. The room has a gas fireplace that made the room pretty warm, good size room refrigerator, a microwave, a good size dining table with 3 chairs... More

My husband and I drove down to Cambria for a quick weekend getaway for his birthday and we stayed at the Little Sur Inn. We're both huge fans of this area and have stayed in Camria/Pismo/Paso/SLO before. The moment we stepped in the door to check in everything was wonderful, the office staff was friendly and welcoming. There is a... More

We love Cambria and have stayed at several area hotels. This is bar far the best value. We've also stayed at the Moonstone Landing Inn, which is owned by the same family (and looks identical), and this place is every bit it's equal, but has better rates (who knows why). I booked a night in a corner ocean view room... More

My partner and I did the drive from San Fransisco to Los Angeles. We stopped here half way. It's beautiful, right across the road from the ocean. We had a partial ocean view room which was nice, I would try and get an ocean view if it's available. The continental breakfast in the morning was really great. So much to... More
