We visited the blue dolphin inn as part of our honeymoon road trip of California. Admittedly, I went into our stop in Cambria with minimal expectations, and the BDI would just be an overnight stay in order to break up the driving... How wrong I could of been!
The hotel is beautifully located with merely a (quiet) road separating you from the ocean. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly, and made to feel right at home. Being led to our room and shown around (by christina, if i recall) was one of those minor touches that you don't get with the huge chain hotels, making the experience instantly feel more personal and friendly.
Our room (saldanah room) was cosy, beautifully decorated, and the view was amazing. The sound of the waves outside adds to the tranquility of the hotel.
It was a wonderful surprise to discover a freshly baked cake waiting in our room to help us celebrate our honeymoon.
There are a couple of restaurants in walking distance, or the town is only a five minute drive away with further restaurants, bars, and shops.
If you're planning a trip down the coast, it's certainly worth a stay.
Beautiful location, amazing hotel, friendly staff, all at a reasonable price... What more could you ask for?
