Little Sur Inn has for long been my go-to R&R spot. I have spent many 'girls' weekend here with mom and sis, and also spent several honeymoon and anniversary days here. This recent trip was another much-anticipated anniversary trip to the area and this hotel. However things are quite different than before and not for the better. First of all... More

We’re truly sorry to hear that your most recent visit with us fell short from your previous experiences. The rate you paid for your Ocean front room during the peak of Spring Break is typically the going rate here on the Central Coast for a beach front property. We can honestly say that we offer a very competitive rate in... More

Great little hotel. Smooth check in, rooms were clean and comfortable. Location was wonderful beautiful. Breakfast was fresh and adequate. We arrived as a group on motorcycles. Local cab driver took us to dinner in town. Can't wait to return. Great seafood restaurant next door makes this inn a very convenient getaway!

Hotel was nicely finished - new stone bathroom, decent TV etc Location was great but it comes with a cost - you could stay slightly inland significantly cheaper Breakfast wasn't great - pastries, boiled eggs and Babybel cheese Main issue was that on the ground floor noise from above was quite intrusive. Not so much voices/TV but footsteps etc -... More

...unless you want a view of the maintenance team's truck. We asked that it be moved to no avail so far. Paying 40% more than a few years ago and the place is looking worn. Although they do provide robes now. See my other reviews - I rarely complain.

Spacious, clean room overlooking Moonstone Beach. Includes a fridge, a microwave and a continental breakfast. Good value. Saved a hundred bucks by staying in a "partial ocean view" room, which was just fine. Only disappointment was the too-soft mattress. Other than that, I would recommend for a short stay.

It’s nice to hear you appreciated the cleanliness and quality of your room, including the continental breakfast. We feel we offer a quality product at a reasonable price. We hope you informed our Front Desk about the mattress so that we could make sure that it wasn’t just a matter of personal taste. Thank you for staying with us and... More

Beautiful, clean, very spacious rooms! Definitely worth paying the extra for the top floor ocean view -- it was wonderful! First visit to the area and we fell in love with it. So nice to be close to the boardwalk and to be able to see and hear the ocean from your room! It's also really nice to be staying... More

The surroundings are certainly beautiful, but we weren't sleeping outside on the beach here. For the small, bare, dated rooms, unhappy woman at checkin, and uncomfortable beds, the price was a little much. When I overheard what they were charging for rooms with a view, I was floored. It's a motel, guys. Not too impressed.

Upon reading your review, we almost had to ask ourselves if you were reviewing the right property. Our rooms are rather large in size ranging from a minimum of 377 square feet up to 494 square feet, in comparison to the other properties here that range from 200 square feet to 500 square feet. In the last year and a... More

We stopped for 1 night although the receptionist tried to charge us for 2, have yet to check my credit card statement to see if she actually put it through. She wasn't personable or unapologetic for her mistake, I don't think front of house is her vocation in life. The room was a good size but not deserving of the... More

Thank you for sharing your experience. In checking your reservation, we found that you were only charged for 1 night and not 2. The confusion came in due to the modification you had made earlier on your reservation, which was quickly resolved. We sincerely apologize that you felt the Front Desk Associate who was assisting you was not very welcoming... More

Cambria itself is beautiful, and the views across the road into the ocean and beach were spectacular. The Inn itself has lovely, spacious rooms, and was really well run. Considerate, clean and well appointed. My only reservation is, considering the room prices, the breakfast. It's functional, with inadequate seating for all guests. BUT - I wouldn't let that put you... More
