We have stayed at Cambria Pines many times and have always enjoyed it. This time I didn't opt for an upgraded room, and where they put us was dark and dreary, so we asked to pay more and get a room with a patio or deck like we have always had. The only thing they had was a suite, which... More

Lodge is a little off main highway in a residential neighborhood in Cambria. Although a little farther than San Simeon to stay to visit the Hearst Castle, it is a better value than similar places in San Simeon. Rooms are large and comfortable. Our room had a working fireplace. Bathroom however is very dated an plain. Breakfast was included and... More

Dirty, stained carpet and worn out furniture greeted me upon entering my room at the Cambria Pines Lounge. The window view was completely blocked by trees that pushed up against the window. The final straw was the lack of Internet connection. When I asked to be moved to another room, I was told that a similar room was not available... More

I must admit to being a little disappointed in the rooms, plenty big enough, very cosy but also very shabby. The bathroom was old and needed a better shower, toilet didnt flush without a huge effort and our friends actually over flowed. Our rooms looked nothing like the photographs. We had to wait for the breakfast area to open up... More

We used a Travelzoo voucher and upgraded to a deluxe suite. It was very spacious, and although rustic in feel it was extremely clean and comfortable. We only stayed two nights but could have easily enjoyed a much longer visit. The staff was cheerful and super efficient. Dining was a simple pleasure. Cambria Pines Lodge exceeded our expectations in every... More

Went for a two night stay with some friends over the holidays. We purchased this great deal from Travelzoo. How fun? It's like camp for grown ups. I shared a suite with two girlfiriends. The suite slept 6 people so we had plenty of space. It was'nt fancy but was clean and comfortable all the same. The deal included breakfast... More

Just spent a few days at the Cambria Pines Lodge. Got a great deal on Travelzoo which included dinner & breakfast. I would probably consider this to be a 3.5 star hotel. All in all I enjoyed the stay and would stay there again for the same type of deal. They upgraded us to the suite. Our room was clean... More

There is a sign in front that says this place was established in 1927, and my room looked like it had not been updated since! First of all, I made a reservation on their own website for a room with 2 queen beds. I received no email confirmation at all. After a few days I called them and they assured... More

We've stayed here before and usually loved it. However, this time it was quite the opposite. The pillows were really old and didn't have any support. The bed was really hard, like we were sleeping on two box springs. I could not sleep all night because of that and, woke up with my neck and back in pain. That made... More
