At 8 am you can go out and get the covered basket off the hook near your door. Anticipating a delightful breakfast in your room, you'll find ONE Yoplait yogurt, ONE plain bagel and a tiny container of creamcheese, some nice red grapes, and a carafe of orange juice with two glasses. Trouble is, we had two people in our... More

Great property! Recently remodeled and great location. One of the most pet friendly properties I have been to. The dogs even get a welcome basket. Each room received a breakfast basket delivered to their door in the morning. The owners were very nice! I will be back to enjoy another great sunsets!

We have beed staying here for several years and Cambria Shores is better each time. The dogs receive a basket of towels, mat, dog treats and other essentials. The real treat is for us. Moonstone Beach is next to the hotel and the grounds overlook the beach. The hotel has lots of grassy areas and many adirondack chairs spread out... More

When Cambria Shores called to confirm reservation, first thing they did was ask for name of our dog, so I had a good feeling. This was confirmed upon arrival: a lot of dog owners, all really nice. Room very comfortable, wonderful fluffy comforters, well-appointed kitchenette, light, ventilation worked really well. Main office featured fresh-baked cookies in the afternoon, light hors... More

Just spent the weekend with family at this place. Location is perfect - walk across to the beach, clean rooms and bathroom. Added bonus was watching all the sea creatures at low tide! Sitting on the lawns, watching the ocean and eating snacks provided by the hotel was fun for my kids!

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary last year and absolutely loved it. It's in a great location, just walk across the street and you are at the beach. There is also a nice boardwalk to walk along the coast for a bit. We enjoyed the breakfast left in the basket, and they were kind enough to leave... More

When the weather gets really hot in central California, you can expect it to be 30 - 40 degrees cooler in Cambria. We spent a relaxing - away from the heat break - at the Cambria Shores Lodge. It reminds me of a hunting lodge or a very large B&B with wonderful ambiance. Be careful driving in, we almost hit... More

The Cambria Shores is a beautiful and friendly pet friendly motel, but acts more like a B & B. This place is right across the street from the ocean and a nice beach walkway. The owners have really outdone themselves with their amenities and snacks. They serve cookies upon arriving at 3 pm, they serve vegetables, cheese and crackers at... More
