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

We were just leaving a conference in Monterey and needed some quiet alone time. This place was perfect. Situated on Moonstone beach, the sounds and views are jaw dropping! We booked the suite and were not disappointed! Huge bathroom with jacuzzi tub, wonderful shower, comfortable bed and a fireplace (had a little bit of an issue operating it). We toured... More

We booked Room 7 for my husband's 85th birthday weekend, staying three nights at this really lovely property. Room 7 is the suite, with what they call a den, a very comfortable room, with a glassed-in electric fireplace (which looks lovely, without the mess associated with a "real" fire) visible from both the den and the bedroom. The bathroom has... More

My wife and I went to Cambria for our Anniversary and the Blue Whale came through with Flying Colors! The Innkeeper Mary Margaret was the nicest and most hospitable person we could have asked for. We booked room 7 in advance (the best in the house) and it was waiting for us. Mary even gave us an opportunity to see... More
