Stayed here during a recent visit to HEARST CASTLE. up on check-in the clerk was very friendly and welcoming with a bright smile and great knowledge of the area. We chatted about where to eat and how long the tour at the castle might be. The room was very clean and spacious with good amenities. The shower had great pressure... More

Well located on the waterfront, with generous room and comfy bed. Staff were pleasant & helpful. However, the walls were thin and noise from surrounding rooms was ever present. Though the room was large, the tea & coffee facilities were located in the bathroom beside the toilet! The bathroom is small enough, why put food preparation with sanitary facilities. Crazy!...

There are a row of motels on the road across from the ocean and this is one of them. Our room was spacious with a sleeper sofa in addition to the king size bed. The bathroom had lots of counter space which I especially liked. Very quiet and comfortable. We were given fresh baked cookies at check in and the... More

The location is perfect, right along the coast. The room was very spacious and had a beautiful fire place and a cute patio. The staff were friendly and I would highly recommend it for future guests. They helped us find a delicious local restaurant. There is also a nice pool at the hotel and a trail along the coast to... More

Great staff and right opposite the beach. The hotel however is ready for renovation throughout and breakfast isn't anything to get too excited about. Not much value here for the considerable room cost ...

As a paraplegic, I need a bathroom counter that is much lower than the one in the room and the "roll-in shower" was only a little wider than my wheelchair making it difficult to use. The soap holder was behind me rendering it useless. For a water conscious community, I was surprised that the shower hose didn't have an "off"... More

Stopped here for one night on our California Coast drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles. Chose it because it was roughly half way between the two locations. Unfortunately due to timing, we arrived late in the evening and left early the next day. But had I known how lovely it was in Cambria and at the Fireside Inn, I... More

We visited Cambria for the first time over Memorial Day weekend and found a wonderful hotel at the Fireside Inn. Our room was nicely furnished and very clean. It was wonderful being right across the road from the ocean where there was a nice boardwalk for a leisurely stroll. Sunsets were great. They include a very nice breakfast with very... More

We had no reservations for this unplanned weekend get away but knew that we wanted to stay somewhere on the central coast near San Simeon. I found this Inn on the internet while my husband was driving and called to see if they had a room. The Hotel manager was super friendly and accomodating We just loved the location and... More

Disabled notes: The floor in the back hallway is unlevel. Please use caution. Our room was very pleasant even though it backed up to Hwy 1. Check in was easy, and our breakfast the next day was really good. Would go again. NOTE: no cell phone signal for our phones during our stay there. Depending on your needs that could... More
