We thoroughly enjoyed out one night stay at the Lodge. Wish we could have stayed longer. Our check-in was welcoming (complimentary glass of wine) and included recommendations for local dining. The Lodge location can't be beat, what a cute strip of motels along Moonstone Beach. Our rooms were clean which is especially difficult given the beach location. We enjoyed taking in the sunset on the cozy outdoor deck, complete with blankets and a nice playlist. Continental breakfast in the morning was delicious. Thank you Cambria Beach Lodge.

The room was great except for the really small side tables. The pillows were extra fluffy. The view from the breakfast nook was beautiful. The boardwalk was across the street and had many great photo spots especially at sunset. May have to travel for other meals as the restaurants close by were an hour and a half wait.

We spent our wedding anniversary At Cambria Beach Lodge and loved it! The room was simple and charming. They had a sitting area with a great view of the ocean. The staff would come and check on us and offer wine or beer! The location was perfect… walking distance from moonstone beach and great restaurants! We were a short ride to other great restaurants, wine tasting rooms, and antique shops! Friendly people everywhere! Look forward to spending time here next year.

I’ve been here with my family as part of a road trip on the California coast, and we could not find a better place to stop by. The hotel is located right in front of the beautiful Moonstone beach and at walking distance from some restaurants. The hotel is very cozy, clean and very much in harmony with the surrounding nature. The room we chose had decent space for the 4 of us and was nicely furnished (we loved the decorative fake fireplace). They also offer bikes to take a tour of the surroundings, that we found a nice plus. One little heads up: do not expect a large variety of choices for the continental breakfast (included): you may get some complaints from your kids… But honestly this hotel is a 5 star rating that I would strongly recommend to anyone.

The room was clean and pleasant. Bathroom was nice and well maintained. Worst was the constant noise. The rooms are small and the hotel is centrally located so people are coming and going all day with the parking lot and cars directly outside of each room. We also had lots of noise from the neighboring 2d floor unit, footsteps, thumping. If your neighbors have friends in other units, there’s a lot of talking that you can’t avoid because all the windows face the parking lot, the maintenance rooms and the ice machine. I was awoken at 6 a.m. by guests leaving in their car because it’s literally steps away from your bed.

Cambria Beach Lodge is the perfect weekend getaway spot! It is right across the street from the ocean and boardwalk. The sky deck has unobstructed views of the ocean and is perfect for sunset! The rooms are well put together and very clean and there were so many small touches that make your stay comfortable. The staff is friendly and super helpful and the beach cruisers are a nice touch to be able to bike around town. Overall we had an amazing stay here!

This is a nice little place to stay by the beach. Nothing fancy, but the location and the staff make it worthwhile. Rooms 1 and 2 are at the front across from the office, and have 2 beds each. In the mornings they offer a light breakfast - take advantage of it. Friendly, clean place to stay. We'd do it again.

I had the opportunity recently to stay a few days at this hotel in the Beachhouse apartment on the second floor. The apartment was amazing, clean, spacious, well equipped, comfortable and private with gorgeous ocean views. Love sitting on one of the two private patios and enjoy the free breakfast, a welcome drink or just gaze at the ocean and listen to the tide come in. Free bikes are offered to tour around with and the beautiful oceanfront path is right in front of the hotel. Staff from desk to hotel manager were incredibly friendly and did everything to ensure a memorable stay. Try it, you'd love it.
