Travelers' Choice
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 sea life, 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. Many of the guestrooms offer partial views of the ocean, but the front lawn with Adirondack chairs provide an excellent full ocean view and a perfect place to 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. Sorry, No pets allowed.

Road trip test drive included an overnight stay at the Castle Inn. Good location on Moonstone Dr. checking was without issue. Clerk was helpful to me and other patrons. My room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Even though my room was on the second floor Surrounded by large family gathering it was quiet without any noticeable Next Door Neighbor noise. I wouldn’t mind staying here again.

Our room #4 was clean, attractive, and the beds very comfortable. The view from our upstairs room looked out to the ocean across the street and we enjoyed a lovely sunset. However, there was a problem with the front door - I could not open it from the inside! Had I been a woman traveling alone, I would have needed to call the front desk for help to get out. My husband was able to open it so we didn't request a different room but the door needs to be repaired before anyone else stayes there. We reported the problem and hope it has been fixed.

We arrived after 10 PM so we had to go to a nearby property to check in. Our room was well appointed and clean. We had beautiful surroundings and were happy with our stay. Breakfast was good. XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

Everything was great for the price paid. Surprisingly, there was continental breakfast included while it wasn't advertised during booking. It would be nice if there was an EV charging station on-premises or close by.
