We have stayed at Little Sur Inn a number of times, and this weekend we brought three other couples with us. Everyone was impressed with the quality of the rooms, especially for the price. The location cannot be beat! Hotel staff is friendly. Access is easy. Coffee and breakfast were good. We had an ocean front room and loved every... More

We had two beautiful and clean rooms not with the view. However, when stepped outside you can see the beach. Breakfast was good. I recommend this place to anybody that wants to go to Hearst Castle😊 friendly staff and close to Morro Bay😊we loved it

My husband and I stayed here February 2015 for the holiday weekend. We had a beautiful ocean view room with a fireplace. The place was perfect and the price was unbeatable for such a view. We walked the boardwalk along Moonstone a couple times and enjoyed the proximity to the restaurant next door. We enjoyed the continental breakfast included with... More

We stayed at the Little Sur Inn for a night as we were driving the PCH. We absolutely loved the hotel and wish we had planned for a second night. We stayed in the ocean front room on the top floor, with two queen beds. The room was large, spotlessly clean, well equipped (decent coffee maker, fridge, microwave) and had... More

Little Sur Inn is one of the things that keep us coming back to Cambria. i love falling asleep to the sound of the surf on Moonstone Beach, i love walking along the board walk with my coffee in the morning. Cambria is a little jewel on the central coast. This is a family owned boutique hotel/ b&b; it is... More

We selected the ocean front balcony king room for one night and were very happy. The property is one of seven that we have stayed in on Moonstone Beach over the years and is by far the nicest. Our room seemed very fresh and new, the bedroom and bathroom were very spacious for the area and the mini fridge &... More

We stayed one night for our anniversary. It's located right next door to the best restaurant in my opinion on Moonstone Beach, the Sea Chest. Our room was clean and comfortable with a fireplace that was also the heat. Our room didn't face the ocean but by opening one of the blinds we could see it. The breakfast was fair.... More

My wife and I started staying in Cambria almost every year since out 1st wedding anniversary. Since kids, it's been a bit harder to get away and we haven't returned to Cambria since 2008. Well, to celebrate out 20th wedding anniversary, I booked room 15, which is the corner bottom room facing the ocean. It is pricey, especially in January... More

We coud hardly wait to celebrate a wedding anniverary here with an ocean front room. We traveled all day. Bottom line, Little Sur was not welcoming. That was a shock. We arrived early. We did not expect early check in, but were optimistic when the front desk asked us to leave our cell number. We returned a few hours later,... More

We stayed overnight on our trip up to Monterey. It is across the street from beautiful Moonstone Beach. The rooms are well appointed and have a nice view (if you have the ones facing the ocean). The free wifi is nice as there is no ATT service in Moonstone Beach. The free buffet breakfast in the morning is a nice... More
