we received a recommendation about the White Water Inn from a friend and booked a room for 2 nights. But we liked it so much that we asked if we could stay a 3rd night. Fortunately, an even better room was available for the 3d night, and we were charged the same rate. The hotel is located on Moonside Beach... More

Whitewater is an awesome, simple and perfect place to spend time at the coast. The only thing separating you from the ocean is the quiet street lined with small B&B's and guest houses. the staff was very friendly as they cleaned our car windows every morning or while delivering breakfast right to our room each morning. the warm croissants and...

Very friendly staff. Loved the great breakfast delivered to our room every morning and the fact they clean your car windows every morning before you head out. Also loved the fact this cottage is right across form the Moonstone beach walk. We will definitely be back as we love Cambria and this hotel.

Upon arrival Kim checked us in. She was very pleasant and informative. We were tired of traveling and did not want to go out to dinner. She provided us with menus of local pizza delivery places. Which was an added bonus because we got to watch the NBA finals in our comfortable rooms. The rooms were large and very clean.... More

Fabulous location, right on the beach at Cambria, with the boardwalk just across the quiet road. Listed as B&B/guest house, but the only thing you don't get compared to a hotel is a restuarant. Each room is like a private studio, with external door, and check in was easy & very friendly, with plenty of local recommendations. Free wifi, parking... More

We only stayed for one night and found this hotel very pleasant. Little bit quirky, but room was clean, nicely decorated and beds were very comfortable. Man in reception couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Would recommend this to friends and family

While visiting Hearst Castle, we decided to stay overnight in Moonstone Beach. It was a great choice because we were a stone's throw from the beach. Our room was clean and comfortable. We chose a movie from their extensive dvd collection. After a great night's rest in our comfy bed, housekeeping brought us a yummy breakfast of eggs, pastries, bagels,... More

We only got to stay a night at the White Water Inn, but we would have liked to stay a week. It was beautiful and perfectly appointed, and right across the street from a boardwalk running along Moonstone Beach and beautiful surf. The managers at the Inn were most helpful in all aspects and even lowered our bill significantly because... More
