We stayed for one night as we travelled through, but would have stayed longer. Check-in was painless, and we got a quick tour to show us where everything is located, happy hour, and dining area. Our room was great, in a special kind of way! We stayed in room 22, upstairs. (So had to lug the luggage up the stairs.) the main part of the room was fantastic; great big bed, two lovely chairs, in front of a fire (electric). The ensuite was tired, but perfectly functional. It was clean, with good toiletries. The shower was good and refreshing. This hotel isn’t a modern hotel, but it has great history. We loved it, and would choose this hotel if in the area again.

Damp musty room should never have been assigned to us. Woke up sneezing. Couch from a nice second hand store. Lobby 5x as nice. No one to help bring luggage to 2nd story = problem if older or have kids.

Hello coryboy1952, We extend our sincerest apologies that your recently renovated luxury king suite did not meet expectations. Despite providing you with an allergen-free room, it seems like the unusually high humidity and pollen count dampened your overnight stay. Assistance with your luggage was declined, but please know that we are always happy to help! Please feel free to reach out to of if there is any way we could make you feel better about your stay.

We stayed at The Rigdon House June 6-9. While the rooms are a bit dated, it was built in. 1880. The location was great and you could walk to all shops and restaurants. Very quiet at night so you were able to get a good nights rest. Room was super spacious, 600+ sqft. Great community patio space with comfy chairs and a fire pit. It is a very short drive to Moonstone beach and the Fiscalini Ranch Preserve. The happy hour was great. You can choose from a number of specialty drinks or wine (limit 2 per guest). The appetizers were great, with something different each day. Alexa made this amazing bacon jam ( my wife really wants that recipe) which she served on home made baguettes she baked that day! Won’t see that at the Marriott…. Ever! There is variety of snacks all day and coffee and fruit in the morning. We really felt like we at home in the place and most certainly will visit again. Thank you Rigdon House, especially Alexa for a great stay. PS. My wife made the baguettes using the recipe you gave, outstanding, only thing that would make it better is that bacon jam.

What a way to end 6 days of wine tasting from the Santa Inez Valley to Paso Robles to celebrate my birthday and our anniversary. We received a personal call from the innkeeper the week before we arrived to confirm our arrival time and to inquire whether we were celebrating a special occasion. Alexa greeted us upon arrival and personally showed us around the house. We were even met with a bottle of wine and a card for our anniversary. The happy hour is amazing with a delicious appetizer and 2 drinks per person. Her crostini topped with goat cheese and an amazing bacon jam was fantastic !Friday night we even had live music. We were in room 22 in the back of the house with a little balcony overlooking the back patio and open space nature area. Fireplace in our room, huge TV and freezer. Coffee pot toaster microwave. Everything one would need. Will definitely be back!

My wife and I stayed here recently while visiting family in the area. She rates it as 'excellent' overall where I would probably go with a 'very good'. One thing that we didn't like is that their website does not provide enough detail regarding the location of the rooms they offer. Thus when we arrived we found out that my wife, who has enormous difficulty climbing stairs, had to climb a very long flight of stairs to get to our room. I also had to lug our luggage up/down those same stairs. There is no elevator and there was no offer to assist with our luggage by staff. I had called the property ahead to ask questions however, I never got anyone to answer and by the time an employee had called me back it was too late to do anything about getting more details regarding room location, etc. There is ample off-street and street parking in the area and the staff were responsive to requests for additional amenities like toilet paper, soap, pillows, etc. They also offer a complimentary happy hour for guests from 5 - 7 PM every evening where you can get up to two cocktails and some basic finger food. If you are a light sleeper, it can be difficult to sleep as anyone walking in the halls can be heard through the doors and due to the squeaky floors. The pillows they provide were also very poor as they provided no support at all. Overall, if you like to stay in historic properties this place is probably for you. However, I highly recommend making inquiries in advance to ensure you get a room that will meet you needs.

Amazing place to have a weekend escape! First - the architecture. It is just beautiful. It’s a historical violin ding and the team do a great job maintaining it really well, keeping it super clean and nice. Second - the team. They just super friendly and welcoming. Also they do the best cocktails (best daiquiri ever;). Third - location. All the cafes&restaurants are nearby. You can explore the city and visit antique stores and it’s all within walking distance. Highly recommend for unforgettable experience.

We wanted to find a place in Cambria to celebrate our anniversary and I'm very glad my first choice was booked. The Rigdon House was so nice! Our host when we arrived, Christian, was so friendly and helpful and our room was very large and comfortable. They offered a "Happy Hour" from 5-7 (Chistian was also our bartender) and this was a great time to relax and meet some of the other guests, some of whom were repeat visitors to Rigdon. That was such an enjoyable time and the people we met we wonderful. It's a short walk to Main street where we felt like locals. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

My husband and I stayed at the Rigdon House for three nights and absolutely loved it! The staff are unbelievably gracious and helpful - everyone we encountered from the front desk to the room attendants. We stayed in a suite right across from the fire pit and took advantage of that feature twice during our stay. We also enjoyed the wine and cocktail reception. The location is perfect for exploring local antique shops which is one our favorite activities. Also close to many good restaurants. The staff told us that they have many repeat customers and we can certainly see why!

It’s a nice bed and breakfast which we decided during our highway 1 road trip. The hotel is nestled just around the corner of the busy street in cambria so it’s conveniently steps away from coffee shops/restaurants. It’s a big house with outdoor patio, fire pit seating in the backyard. There’s enough space and seats to hold an event. The check-in was smooth, the staff informed us of daily happy hour and it’s on the house. Room interior decor was done well, clean and spacious. Bed and pillows were comfy so we slept well. We had a memorable stay and wish we could have stayed a little longer.

Cutest little small town hotel ever!!! I felt like I was living in a Hallmark holiday movie and I was all about it. Chose it for its location to the Xmas market but was happily surprised to find such a gem. Highlights: - Adoreable house that looks so quaint from the moment you see it - Nightly happy hour: best one I've ever had with not just subpar wine like hotels offer but made to order cocktails with a fun festive list. I was so excited for this especially cause I love a pre-dinner coctail but many restaurants in town only do beer and wine. Holiday ones included fun version of hot toddy, cranberry mule, and a pumpkin almond milk one. They even have a freshly homemade snack each night: one was a meat and cheese skewer and another bacon jam crostini. - Large rooms with super comfortable bed, pillows, and sheets. This is not standard in hotels so I fully appreciated it. - Super cute patio with little round tables and a fire pit. - Great location on the side street walkable to all of downtown Cambria, across the street from the Xmas market shuttle, and a short 8 minute drive to a lovely oceanside trail. - Precious floral tea cup and saucer collection with a box of teas to choose from. - Super friendly staff - Bunch of snacks like bagged cookies and candies at reception and fruit and microwave popcorn in the other room. - Have the Hallmark channel so I could watch it while staying in a hotel fit to be in one of those movies. Yes I'm so meta like that. Midlights: - Don't need a full breakfast but would be nice to have some morning pastries available. - No oceanside view cause it's in town but you get the trade off for being walkable to several shops and restaurants. Lowlights: - Fire pit turns off at 9pm. Would love to sit by the fire later at night--we could try and be quiet for the other patrons. - It's a 3 hour drive away from home so won't get to stay here too often. LOVED this hotel so much and would come back to Cambria just to stay here again. They plan on making upgrades next year and would love to see what they do.
