Just stayed one night but it was good enough to want to come back. Very quaint and comfortable. Located near the end of Moonstone Beach Drive, easy access to the beach boardwalk, you can hear the ocean from your room. Breakfast is brought to you in the morning: warm bagels, muffins, hot coffee, OJ, fruit, it was just perfect. The...

We have stayed here twice so far. The rooms are clean and tidy, the breakfast delivered to our room in the morning was wonderful. Not only would we recommend this inn to our friends for their base camp to explore Paso wine country we would also come back to spend some lazy days on the beautiful beach.

Very clean, nice boutique hotel right across street from beach. Stayed here for trip to Hearst Castle which is only 10 mins away. Easy check in, super friendly and continental breakfast delivered to the room in morning was great! Would definitely recommend this hotel!

We have stayed at White Water Inn several times for special occasions over the past 20 years. The quality and cleanliness of the rooms, and the service from the staff, always meets or exceeds our expectations.

Our second visit to the White Water Inn. Super friendly and helpful staff. This time Mark talked me into the King suite - the rooms in front facing the ocean with a small private deck and hot tub - He said we'd be glad we did and he was absolutely right! Loved sitting out front having our morning coffee watching...

Lovely facility. Almost a throwback to another age. Very friendly welcome, included a plate of cookies and bowl of fruit at the front desk. We were provided with a brochure of local highlights, including personal dining recommendations. Ideally located across from the street from the ocean boardwalk. Breakfast was delivered to our door at the desired time. Terrific treat. Very...

Cambria is a beautiful location and the White Water Inn fits the feeling of the town. Rooms are traditionally decorated and well maintained. Not a new hotel but clean, comfortable with a fireplace and hot tub. The view from our room was enchanting, ocean, beach, colorful flower boxes with easy access to a boardwalk. We will return.

Nice room and location (in front of the sea and 10 minute drive from Hearst Castle). Quite place although located on a road along the ocean. Cooky treats are yummi. Hotel staff is very nice. And having our car windows cleaned in the morning was a precious luxury !

This is a wonderful and relaxing spot. The service was warm, friendly, and thorough. Although the rooms are not large, they had everything we needed along, with incredibly comfortable beds and pillows. The breakfast delivery is very convenient, and the staff does you the favor of cleaning off your car windows each morning. Above all, the location is perfect, at...

The photos don't do justice to this room. Everything faces the ocean: king bed, couch, picture windows, hot tub, and rocking chairs on the patio. White Water Inn is at the north end of the beach road and road traffic is light. Breakfast delivered to the room at 8 or 8:30. Cottage 1 has a similar set up but this...
