We loved Cambria and we enjoyed staying at the Blue Dolphin Inn. I probably would have rated it a 5 if I had splurged for an ocean view room, but I had probably the cheapest room (King Superior) so my windows faced the parking lot and not the ocean and the room was right behind the receptionist’s office, which was odd at first but we got used to it. The room itself was quite nice, with a cozy fireplace and flatscreen TV. The bed was really comfortable. If they had had room service, my husband never would have left the room!
We liked the friendly staff, the coupon for Madeline’s (an amazing restaurant), the Keurig coffeemaker (yum!). We enjoyed the picnic breakfast, especially the egg mcmuffin puff pastry thing. On the downside, there was a lot of noise whenever the next room used their toilet or their bathroom fan. Sort of like a 747 landed in your room. Luckily, that noise did not occur during our sleep hours, but if it had, it would have ruined our stay. Also, the wifi didn’t reach this room, but they had an Ethernet cable that allowed me to connect.
Cambria is a beautiful town. Bless the guidebook that said if you want to visit Hearst Castle, stay in Cambria and not San Simeon. We hope to return and chances are, we will be staying here and splurging on an ocean-view room.
