Found this place purely by chance because the better know places were sold out or required a minimum stay. So glad we did, because it was a gem. Had rooms 2&3 and each was lovely and unique. Slept like a baby in the very comfortable bed. Large rooms, each with fireplace, microwave and mini fridge. Right across the road from... More

This is a lovely little inn. Our room was very large, spotless, wood-paneled, with a comfortable bed, a desk, a big TV, etc. Michelle, the inn-keeper, is really great and spares no attention to detail. She waited for us to arrive even though we came in rather late, made a delicious breakfast and took a lot of time to give... More

While staying at an OK hotel in Cambria, we happened upon a newly renovated and renamed B&B. After being shown around, we checked to see if there was a room available to change hotels that day! Sadly but not surprisingly all of the rooms were booked. We had the opportunity to travel again to Cambria and this time we did... More

A stop in Cambria was the end to a magical vacation and while many times the last place doesn't leave a lasting impression, but this jewel of a hotel and their lovely innkeeper Michelle was the cherry on the sundae. Michelle's attention to detail is amazing. She has gone over the top with how the rooms are set up, the... More

While driving through Cambria on our way to Big Sur, we drove through Moonstone Beach looking for the Blue Whale Inn where we had previously stayed many times. We could not find it...but when we drove back more slowly, we saw it had changed names. We dropped in to see what the changes were and Michelle, the innkeeper was delightfully... More

If I could give this place six stars I would. There are so many great points I don't know where to start. Innkeeper Michelle spent literally hours with me going over logistics for an upcoming stay in October for our daughter's wedding. Wow. At night she took me out to see the frogs in the pond and show me some... More

I have stayed at many nice hotels, even very high end ones like the Mandarin Oriental, Ritz Carlton, and Four Seasons. The attention to detail at the 9 Iron is of similar quality, if different aesthetic. Everything is charming, spotlessly cleaned and designed for perfect convenience - right down to the wine glasses and refrigerator you might need after a... More

We had the most wonderful stay. A beautiful room which felt just like staying in a log cabin with everything you could wish for including the biggest most comfortable bed where you can sit and enjoy looking out to sea, microwave and sink area, lots of cupboard space, luxurious bath robes, TV and coffee maker, nice bathroom and a jacuzzi...

A great way to enjoy Moonstone Beach and Cambria. The 9 Iron Inn is only one block from the state park and across the street from the boardwalk above the beach. The lobby of the hotel is like your own private living room. Leather sofas and chairs with view windows. You could read all day and look up to see... More

Thank you Michelle! Our room was so big and the smell of the wood truly was Devine. We were able to listen to and watch the waves crashing from our bed. And the cookies were to die for. We always enjoy a stroll along the boardwalk, which is right across the street. While we were there the Scarecrow Festival was... More
