The property: The hotel is beautifully done and the rooms are charming. Ours was a 'Jacuzzi suite' not facing the sea - actually it was all the way at the back. It had a working fireplace, a king bed and a jacuzzi. The rooms and corridors of he hotel smelled fresh and clean.
Location: Right next to the beach. You can get rooms facing the sea. The beach is a beautiful one (Moonstone beach) which is know to have colorful sea glasses wash ashore- so hunting for them is a popular obsession. Not easy though - after about forty fine minutes, we found one!! The boardwalk is very nice and stretches all the way around the beach and there are plenty of people walking, running, sitting on the benches facing the sea etc. The beach is a few miles from downtown Cambria - which is a quaint little town with lots of eating options.
With the room: They had a complimentary wine and cheese tasting in the evening which real nice! The breakfast too was hearty with two types of egg, ham, cereals, waffles, assortment of bread, fruits etc. Parking is available in the lot and there is no separate charge for it.
Service: was good. Friendly at the reception and in the restaurant.
The best part was the great deal we got on the hotel as a walk-in reservation!! - 90$/night including taxes! We drove in at about 3:30 pm; so maybe we got some unsold room.
