My husband and I just got back from a getaway in Cambria, and we stayed at the Little Sur Inn. We had a 2nd floor ocean view room, which we thorough enjoyed. The woman checking us in was a tad snippy when we asked about early check in. Not a big deal, but just a bit unpleasant to deal with...

Staff: Friendly & Helpful Room: #22 facing the ocean If you love the sound of the ocean this is the room for you. The room is on the second floor with a fantastically unobstructed view of the ocean surf. The room itself is very spacious and comfortable. The only issue with the room is the shower water pressure was not...

I absolutely loved our room at the Little Sur Inn. We had a ocean front room and it was almost like a little cabin. The room had a magnificent ocean view with a fire place, it was incredibly romantic. There were sliding glass doors heading out to a patio so we could also sit out there and enjoy the view....

The Little Sur Inn is located across the road from the ocean and one can appreciate wonderful sunsets ! The Inn was clean, comfortable with friendly helpful staff and the perfect stop along the Pacific Coast highway.

What a pleasant surprise this place is. We were staying next door at Moonstone Landing and decided to stay an extra day. The Little Sur Inn had space available and the accommodations were equally pleasant. They have a nice patio tucked away and the view is just beautiful. We highly recommend both places!

This cute hotel sits amongst an unpretentious little row of similar hotels right across from the beach. We have stayed at a few other hotels here but prefer the Little Sur Inn. The views from the nicely renovated second level are wonderful and we appreciate the non-carpeted floors for cleanliness. We usually stay just one or two nights on our...

We love Cambria, and had stayed last time at Little Sur's lovely sister Inn, two doors down the Coast... We'd heard that this place was even better, and better it was! The room was big, comfy, had a lovely view of the surf & even a fireplace to take the chill off the night air...a lovely Continental breakfast, enjoyed in...

We have visited Cambria on a number of occasion and stayed along Moonstone Beach every time. The stay at Little Sur Inn was amazing! The front desk staff are so warm and welcoming, very smooth. Our room wasn't quite ready so we drove up and looked at the sea elephants. Came back to the Inn and went to our room....

Little Sur Inn staff were excellent, allowing early check-in and wine glasses for our room as well as restaurant recommendation. Room was large, well appointed, clean and a very large bathroom with jetted tub and separate shower. Enjoyed sitting on our balcony and sipping wine into the sunset. The fireplace was especially nice when it became too chilly to sit...

I was originally hesitant to book a stay at this hotel because it only had a two star rating but booked it as they were the only hotel on Moonstone that had 2 queen beds available. It turned out to be the BEST CHOICE EVER. The room was quit large, very clean, and was decorated. There was no view but...
