It was one of the very first motels built along the Cambria coast when cattle still roamed on Moonstone Beach Drive. The property boasts one of the best geographical locations on the beach. Right in front of the lodge are amazing tide pools to discover sealife, gorgeous lookouts, Leffingwell Landing Park and a wide-open beach upon which to stroll. The grounds at the Inn are broad and situated with comfortable sitting areas for enjoyable ocean viewing and people-watching. All of the guestrooms offer views of the ocean, but the upstairs rooms provide an excellent vantage point to watch the daily sunsets. The rooms at Castle Inn are simple but more than adequate to provide a wonderful stay at the beach. It is our intention to make the property one of the best values along Moonstone Beach and a great option for families.

I took my father here for a little California sunshine and beach life before heading on a one month journey to Asia. The Castle Inn is a perfect, clean and tidy little hotel just waiting for you to unwind on a long drive on the California coast. There are several beaches

This is the most lovely place for serenity. The staff makes the stay even better. We had brought our dog and when we checked in they brought her a bed, bowls for food and water and treats. Also, we enjoyed the front lawn it is a spectacular view of the ocean.

We loved our pre Valentine's Day trip to Cambria and enjoyed trying this hotel out. Nothing stands out that we didnt like. Bed was comfortable and breakfast room and site was clean. Will be back. The access to the boardwalk was directly across the street. That was nice
