Reviewed June 8, 2004

The Blue Dolphin was an ok stay in Cambria. We probably wouldn't go back again. Our room was not ready at check in - the cleaning people were still cleaning our room, but the front desk didn't know this, so we were checked in and ended up standing in the hallway with our luggage while they finished cleaning our room. The room itself was very pretty with the wallpaper and canopy bed - the bathrooms were not updated. We went down to afternoon tea which was store bought cookies and coffee - nothing spectacular. The view from our room of the ocean was nice, but I would assume the other hotels on the street have the same view. The breakfast was not ready on time in the morning and my husband was told to come back in 15 minutes. The front desk person recommended a place for dinner and gave us incorrect directions. Not a great stay - will probably try other hotels on the street if we ever stay in Cambria again. Try the Harmony Pasta Factory if you are in town though - it was excellent!

03/25/03: Not only is the Blue Dolphin Inn located in in the wonderful waterfront area waterfront area in Cambria called Moonstone Beach, the Inn itself is worth stopping for. Once inside the small lobbby, the first thing you notice is its warm and tasteful decor - which is evident throughout the guest rooms and Inn. Thoughtful details exude; fireplaces in all rooms, some with canopy beds, plush towels, and spacious rooms. There are only 18 rooms (so it's quite), but 8 are oceanfront. When we checked in, the desk manager offered to upgrade us to an oceanfront room, when we asked the rate, she said "no charge". The staff act very much like a conceirge too, offering to make dinner reservations, etc. for you. They also have copies of area restaurants menus, maps, tour guide information. Continential breakfast is included with the room too. Really, everything was excellent. I hope to visit again very soon.
