We spent the last two nights of 2013 at the Blue Dolphin and really liked the location; it's across the street from the ocean and a wonderful boardwalk that provides a great way to walk along the shore for over a mile. The staff couldn't have been nicer or more helpful in making dinner reservations or answering our questions about the area. We had never been to Cambria and found it to be very charming and pretty as well as close to popular sights like the Hearst Castle, sea elephants viewing area, etc. Our corner room was 109 with a bit of an ocean view and nice amenities like a comfy bed, large bathroom with a jetted tub, coffee maker, fireplace etc. It was very comfortable except that there is an outside door adjacent to that room that other guests use; it actually wasn't too noisy when we were there, but I can see that it could be. Because 109 is on the lower floor, there's a question about privacy as the windows allow anyone passing by to easily look in. The boxed breakfasts are adequate but nothing to rave about, and, all in all, we think the hotel is a bit overpriced. That said, we did have a good time and would consider coming back if we had the choice of a different room.
