“Why don't we live here?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2013

"Why don't we live here?" This was the comment my husband made when we visited Cambria and Paso Robles area. We were so glad that we chose the Moonstone Landing. After walking the boardwalk and seeing other places along the shore, our ocean front room appeared to have one of the best views. The room were also priced lower than most of the other hotels I checked. The service was fantastic. Breakfast was self serve but fresh and plentiful. Our room was clean and spacious. I would recommend the ocean front, though all the rooms appeared spacious and clean. Though we can't afford to live there year round, we will definitely return someday.

Room Tip: As other have said... splurge for the ocean view.

This hotel was the best place we stayed on our recent California road trip for our honeymoon. On our way we drove through Cambria, a quaint, old-fashioned little town and Moonstone Landing is on the sea front. Our room was clean, modern and had a gas fire which admittedly we did use in July! It created a lovely relaxing atmosphere and we had a view of the sea, even though we were in a side room. The staff were very helpful and friendly and nothing was too much trouble. There was a huge choice for breakfast with lots of lovely pastries. We loved it here and would have liked to stay longer!

Room Tip: You don't need to pay extra for a sea view - the side view rooms are still excellent.

Many guests such as yourself choose our property as their Honeymoon destination. We're glad you enjoyed the ambiance of the fireplace in your room while enjoying the oceanview from your partial view room. Thank you for sharing your experience.

A perfect hotel to enjoy all the Cambria has to offer. Splurge and get the room with the Balcony overlooking the ocean. It is newly remodeled with a stackstone fireplace. The room was spacious and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom is any woman's dream. It has a large shower and a large Jacuzzi tub.

Really surprised by how great a stay we had a this pretty little motel. Booked on a whim last minute, the service was friendly and welcoming. The rooms were well equipped with everything you needed (down to the wifi password and instructions clearly placed). A beautiful fireplace in the room also. Tasty free mid afternoon snacks (very welcome after a long drive) and a pretty view of the ocean from inside the room. Close to the local amenities of Cambria (walking distance just along the coast) which offered a beautiful position to view the sun setting. Breakfast was lovely with fresh pastries and plenty of coffee! Would highly recommend and would visit again!

The room was large, clean,and well appointed. We were not expecting a view, but you could see the ocean perfectly from the side window. The rooms have a fireplace, which is nice since evenings can get chilly-even in Summer. Mary, at the front desk was terrific. She was very friendly & went out of her way to make our stay very enjoyable. Can't wait to return. Next time we will splurge & get an ocean front room.

Enjoyed our stay here and very close to the beach. There is a seafood restaurant next door so no need to drive anywhere.....
The local town is a 5 min drive away and a must see and attend......try and find "Red Moose" cookies, a must in this town.
Enjoy!

What a great place to stay in the central California coast. I was greeted by a very friendly young lady when I arrived, made me feel very welcome. My room was great, room 207, with a great ocean view even though it was not the premium front room it was up close to the front. I sat at the table and enjoyed the ocean view. Because of the beautiful weather, I was able to sleep with open windows and enjoy the sound and smell of the ocean when I went to bed. The afternoon cheese and crackers was a nice touch, the breakfast wasn't much, but it was nice to have something to eat before I headed up the coast.

Room Tip: Ask for a room towards the front if not booking the front ocean view balcony rooms.
