We liked the simplicity of this motel. It was clean and equipped with all that was necessary, and provided us with a basic breakfast. Cambria is a pleasant town, and several restaurants are within easy walking distance of the motel. The coast in this part of California is very beautiful and well-worth a visit.

When you arrive a little to late to pay a visit to nearby Hearst castle this is a good place to spend the night. Easy to reach, good clean rooms, enough parking space, reasonable price. Cambria itself is smaal but charming with plenty restaurants around

Visited on our trip south and would say adequate. We had our room upgraded and included a balcony which was very pleasant, and clean. My opinion of the room situation was that the soundproofing needs upgrading as the room above us left us in no doubt of the goings on of the couple in it during the night!!

Lets set things straight. This is a 2* motel, what do you expect...? The place was relatively clean, could do with a dusting. The TV worked fine, nice view of the creek, all furnishing were ok, beds were ok. I like a hard bed, so for me it was fine.. The price was good, at $31 a head you can't... More

Like staying at a flea market store. Couch was a 1960s throw back the couch cushion was actually a lawn chair mattress with tie downs and wasn't even close to matching the couch. Not one piece of comfortable furniture in the room. The mattress on the king bed needed to be replaced 15 years ago, so they just put a... More

The hotel was average. The beds are incredibly hard. They are very warn in and hard. You get what you pay for. Like I said, good for one night. Good walking distance to town, about a 7min walk. We did try Linn's restaurant which was delicious! Overall, the stay here was OK.

You can tell that at some point, about ten years ago, somebody cared about this place. The furnishings are quite nice, it's well designed and doesn't feel like a cheap motel. It's also dirty though, and worn and old. It has little to recommend it except the price. And the reception closes at 8pm, so good luck if anything happens.... More

Mr. Smario had booked two rooms for himself and a "good" friend to attend a winemakers dinner that he was quick to point out he had also paid for. After being in his room for more than three hours, he phoned the front desk to say he was having difficulty accessing the internet. Not another guest on a sold out... More

Room 11, a balcony room, for which we paid extra, was OK, no more than that. I cannot criticize the place on most aspects, but it has the appearance and feel of a place that is coasting and what it offers is falling behind the price it is charging. Check out their web site and perhaps you will see what... More

We stayed at the Creekside in on our way home from San Francisco in May and the rooms are old and in need of updating/remodel but the price isn't bad, the rooms are clean and we loved sitting on the balcony and listening to the birds and frogs. So we came back in September for the Pinedorado Day celebration and... More
