Bummed for sure. I thought this place looked cute in a sweet location. The location was great, but.... The room was nice and clean...with the exception of the bed. It was horrible. No sleep begin. I knew it was a motel so expected the cars parking in the front. I didn't know it was backed up to an alleyway to... More

My husband and I were very pleased with this motel. Everything was nice & clean and the bed was comfortable. Very attentive staff and motel is walking distance to town. We would definitely stay here again.

Clean, comfortable and close to town this was the perfect choice for a stop over night stay. Easy and friendly check in. If you are passing through this motel is the perfect choice. If you're staying longer I would recommend staying on the waters edge, although of course the price tag will be higher

The motel has everything, and is very clean. The only remark can be made about the walls, as they are paper thin. It is only two stars, but has every thing for at least 3 or 4. Friendly service when checking in, although you need to be there by 9pm.

Nice reasonably priced rooms close to Cambria. A very attentive staff that takes care of any need if they can and apologizes if they can't. Within a short walk to the towns restaurants and shopping boutiques.

We had the tiniest room (17) which our luggage just about fit into. Compared to the motel we stayed in the day before in Monterey this one was completely no frills. To be fair to the place they don't advertise as if they offer other things but it is literally a room with a bed and tv. Looking at some... More

Located just outside of town. This clean and slightly dated complex does not have a grand curbside appeal, the rooms are clean and decorated fairly modern. If you're looking a simple place to lay your head, this will work for you. Staff is friendly, rooms have free wifi and tv. There is no air conditioning only a ceiling fan. Also... More

The Cambria Palms is the motel in Cambria (situated in its East Village) that’s located about the farthest from the Pacific Coast and bills itself as the ‘best deal in town’. We still paid about $100 for a King room in early May, though. This place is pretty much no frills but will do the trick if you’re looking for... More

This place was recommended to us by a "friend". What a stinking mistake. It's a dump. We had ants all over the place. It's a dumpy, old remodeled motel located as you enter town. The staff (owners) were very nice but it couldn't make up for the dump of a room. On a positive note they had decent wifi. I... More

Enjoyed a wonderful night on our ride up Pacific Coast Highway. Hotel was clean , quiet and a welcome reprieve from the road trip. Room was spacious, clean and welcoming. Would recommend. There was even a fire pit for enjoyment after the ride.
