After reading the other reviews and the complaints of outdated dirty interiors and paper thin walls, I'd like to share the secret of getting a good night's sleep at Cambria Pines -- reserve a garden view cabin. The 900 section of the property features roomy, bright, new construction cabins, free standing with attractive furnishings, a separate living room and bedroom... More

The wooded location is pretty neat for California. Didn't have air conditioning but is cool enough in evening with windows open but....then there is noise from the music etc until midnight or so. Neither we nor the couple we are traveling with had light in our bathrooms. Place needs some updating.

We booked a hotel on our way from San Fransisco to LA and found that Cambria was a good place. We ended up in Pine Lodge. Special place and absolute out on the country feeling. Finally we got a big room.King size bed for us and queen size for the kids. Superb!! The swimmingpool was nice and clean. But the... More

Here for 1 night. Great rate, rare customer service. This time was a family stay with our son. Beautiful gardens, pathways & updated pool. Huge hot tub.The outdoor covered dining hideouts with hand-made artsy fireplace for expensive but exquisite dinner. Quiet room. 261 forest steps down to Cambria.

My husband and I and our two Shih Tzus stayed here in a Superior Room (#900 and up) and it truly was! We had our own private deck (some have a little yard) under the pines. The rooms in this category are new and have coffeemaker, refrigerator, microwave, and hairdryer and ours had both a shower and a bathtub. There... More

Stayed for 2 nights after a long drive. We were given a huge room at the end of the lodge - worth asking for as it has extra sitting room and walls are paper thin so we could only hear the guy snoring on the one adjoining room. Also probably worth asking for upstairs room as every time someone moved... More

We're glad you enjoyed our beautiful grounds, pool, and restaurant. It appears that you stayed in one of our older buildings, which are slated for refurbishing within the next year or two. Our housekeepers are trained to clean under the beds every day; we apologize for not meeting this objective in your room. We hope you will reconsider and stay... More

Definitely an older property. Beautiful established gardens. Plenty of free parking. We stayed in Moonstone room 422 across the street from main hotel and upstairs that we had to climb with the luggage. Wall paper old, carpets old and stained, but they were clean. Hand soap could be upgraded. Coffee pot in the room. Two nice chairs near the fireplace... More

My family and I have been going to Cambria Pines Lodge since the mid-eighties. There is much to like about it: the lovely flower gardens, the organic produce that arrives on your dinner plate, the entertainment in the evenings, the walk into town on the trail, the generous breakfast buffet, and the frequent availability of deals which include dinner and...

Thank you for your feedback: 1. It is sometimes a challenge to teach younger employees the finer points of hospitality. Our training centers on treating every guest with kindness, courtesy, and friendly attentiveness. We regret that we did not reach our training goal in your case. 2. The old pool building is slated to be replaced with a full-service spa,... More

We visit the "Lodge" several times a year and are never disappointed. The rooms are comfortable with great mattresses that are like sleeping on a cloud. Many rooms have gas fireplaces perfect for those cool coastal nights. A patio or balcony is included with their large suites. The grounds around the Lodge are beautiful with colorful flowers and native plants... More

My husband and I stayed here after a long day in Big Sur on our trip down the California coast. Upon our late arrival, we checked in at the lodge and heard some live music from next door. We checked it out and found a truly talented acoustic guitar player covering some bluesy oldies while we had a beer. It... More
