This is a nice convenient small hotel in Cambria. The room were big, very nice, comfortable, quiet and very clean. I would stay there again any time. Very convenient if you are coming from the Hearst Castle and heading south.

We came for Memorial Day weekend and had a fine time despite some of the shortcomings of this hotel. The property itself appears nice enough and well-situated with a boardwalk that connects to path the runs the length of Moonstone Beach. The room we had was a double king suite with a very large bathroom and lots of room for... More

Our 3rd trip to Cambria and last minute. We had stayed on Moonstone beach before and if you don't get a front row room, you have the 101 in the back...we had seen El Colibri on prior visits and decided to book it this time. Glad we did! The room was tasteful, quiet and well appointed. We ended up hanging... More

Nice hotel. Underground parking was nice to have. It has a small jacuzzi with small outdoor patio for guest. Dining area in open loby with breakfast bar. Room was std size with fireplace as added feature. I unfortunatley got the last room on 1st floor, so had view of bushes and dirt parking lot.

It has really comfortable and nice beds and sofa and clean and modern bathroom. They have public spa on the rooftop so we can take a great rest there. They have nice... More

Just checked into this hotel and was quite surprised at the unprofessional and rude reception I received. Upon sitting down at the check in desk, the woman at the desk offered no greeting, basically ignored me, and continued working on her computer. No, "Excuse me, I'll be right with you." No acknowledgement what so ever. After a few moments of... More

Lovely hotel, great find at a good price. We had a room with a spa bath....the quirk to the room was that there was a big open window form the bathroom into the bedroom, it wouldn't be to everyone's tastes! The room was lovely and spacious, bed comfortable. Wifi was good. Breakfast wasn't included, and not a lot in the... More
