This is one of our favorite places to stay on Moonstone Beach. We are always welcomed back by Michelle, the manager. She makes a grand breakfast for the guests and has a wonderful wine tasting in the late afternoon. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. We travel 7 hours to get here and she lets guests go to their... More

This place is one of a kind. A place where when you stop by, the innkeeper remembers you and hugs you hello upon your return! A genuine compassion for the guest, making sure each one has a wonderful memory of Cambria, and as such, a wonderful memory of the 9 Iron Inn. We hear that the actual moonstones are hard... More

Beautifully appointed bed and breakfast accommodation on Moonstone beach in Cambria. The bedroom was decorated and furnished to a high standard. The breakfasts were excellent and the beach and beach walks were a hop across a quiet road. The lady who runs the Inn is a delightful host. We really enjoyed our two nights at the Inn.

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in the large suite. We loved having the extra space and the jacuzzi tub. The inn was recently completely remodeled, and the style is western coastal casual - a style we much prefer to the Victorian style of many B&Bs. The lobby/breakfast room is large and has a gorgeous view of the... More

Just a one night stay as a part of a larger road trip and wish it could have been longer. We had to leave earlier than breakfast was available and management set out a delightful spread for us early. They also provided useful local knowledge about the best restaurant and even upgraded our room. The room itself was terrific with... More

Last weekend my daughter got married in Cambria, and we used the 9 Iron as our base of operations. The last time I reviewed this inn, we were on a scouting expedition to decide where relatives and wedding party would be staying, and the innkeeper Michelle was so helpful I said I would have given six stars if I could...

When this property was the Blue Whale, it was an expensive indulgence, but worth it. My wife and I have stayed there over a dozen times. Since being acquired in 2014, the decor has been changed to ranch style and is not very pleasing. The bed in room #4 is old, lumpy and awful. For $300 per night, there are... More

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
