From the moment we arrived, we were impressed by how well the entire hotel and grounds were maintained. Check-in was quick and easy, and our room was delightful -- clean, airy, and larger than expected. We've stayed at other hotels along the beach in Cambria, and this is our new favorite. The entire staff was friendly and went out of their way to ensure all our needs were met. Our room had a beautiful view of the ocean even though it was not a beachfront room. We highly recommend the Blue Dolphin Inn!

The ocean view room upstairs was extremely clean, comfortable, cozy, and the view was to die for! The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and there were plenty of thick, soft towels. Little touches like a lighted, magnified makeup mirror, thick and cozy robes, and upgraded spa toiletries along with the fireplace and soaking tub made it feel truly luxurious. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. Aside from the beautiful room, wifi, and breakfast, there were no amenities per se. No pool or jacuzzi, no exercise room or laundry facilities, but it's right on gorgeous Moonstone Beach-- what more do you need than that? I went on long walks along the boardwalk and the beach itself and so enjoyed the peace, tranquility, and beautiful view. I stayed only one night, but went home feeling completely rejuvenated! This trip I experienced a bit "less" because of the pandemic; they still served an included breakfast, but we didn't get to choose our selections and social distancing was the order of the day, but I would 1000% stay in the same room again, and indeed plan to in the near future!

We spent 2 nights here on a drive up the coast to Hearst Castle. The room was clean and comfortable with a gas fireplace to make it cozy. The room also hard a mini-Lovefridge and microwave. Love the location - the Moonstone Beach boardwalk is right across the street and it was a short drive into the town of Cambria, which has a wonderful array of shops and restaurants. The hot "Picnic" breakfast was delicious - definitely a restaurant quality breakfast. Front desk staff was friendly and helpful. I would highly recommend Blue Dolphin.

This is a very clean updated property. Our room # 109 is one of 2 dog-friendly rooms- it was spacious and had a nice view. Staff was very friendly and the breakfasts delivered to our room each morning was a nice touch. It was so nice to walk across the street to the boardwalk and beach
