We recently stayed 2 nights on our travel from LA to San Fran along the PCH. We had a wonderful time and would highly recommend this hotel. The hotel manager, Vivian was extremely helpful. This hotel is ideal if you are traveling the PCH. It is almost in the middle between LA and Dan Fran. Perfect!

The rooms are spacious and clean. Staff at reception were helpful. I only stayed for a night while travelling from San Francisco to San Luis Obispo. The breakfast is a bit basic for European standards, but it seems the usual in USA hotels. The toiletries in the bathroom are so cute and very nicely presented. There is a spacious garage

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.

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.
