My husband and I stayed here the week before Thanksgiving (I am just getting to writing this review) and this little Inn was great, especially for the price. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable and it looked like the room had recent updates. I loved that we could see the beach just across the street from our hotel room. Very romantic and a great little escape! Also breakfast was okay, mostly just pastries, oatmeal and fruit. Very basic but enough to get your day started. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Cambria.

This is a well run little inn on Moonstone Beach. The location is ideal across the road from the scenic boardwalk. The rooms are large and have all the usual amenities. Our partial ocean view room has a nice sitting area by a bay window. The price is very reasonable. This was our second stay here in the last 6 months. For sure, we will be back.

Nice large room with beautiful tiled bathroom. Room had a nice view of the water and was a great location for access to Moonstone Beach. The room is heated by a gas fireplace which was a little strange. The complimentary breakfast was also pretty limited.

One night stay at the Little Sur Inn. Room was very nice and very quiet (we were downstairs). Service was good. Breakfast was limited but pretty good. Location across from the beach is nice. Would recommend.

This hotel was exactly as billed: perfectly located, with lovely and large rooms that were tastefully decorated and complete with the amenities we all want. I spent two nights in an oceanfront room and was completely happy.

The room was quite large, with a comfortable king bed, nice bedding, side chairs and ottoman, table and chairs, small frig and microwave, coffee maker, and a gas fireplace that operates on the thermostat and serves to warm the room. The bathroom was very spacious, with a large vanity and a separate tub and shower. WiFi worked well. The room did not have a safe.

The star of the show was the patio door with flanking windows that created an entire wall of glass looking out over Moonstone Beach, the boardwalk, and the roaring Pacific. A balcony with chairs and a small table was perfect for enjoying that stunning view with a morning cup of coffee, or watching the sunset at day's end. Yes, there is a road (Moonstone Beach Drive) between you and the water, but the traffic wasn't heavy and I was amazed at how peaceful and quiet it was at night. The boardwalk that runs parallel to the beach, near the road, was a fabulous place for a walk, and there are access stairs down to the beach.

Parking is easy, and close to the rooms. Service was gracious and friendly. There is an included continental breakfast and an afternoon snack after 4pm. The location is ideal for exploring the central coast, including Hearst Castle.

I enjoyed my stay in Cambria, and would gladly return to this inn.

Room Tip: I was glad I splurged on the oceanfront room, but you can certainly save money with a limited view.

Great little B&B on an oceanfront strip of road, right there along Moonstone Beach. Room 23 is just one behind the official oceanfront rooms and I'm not sure how much less of a view I really had, and for half the price of the front rooms. Sure, the fireplace is gas but the flame is real. Real warm, too, which came in handy during early Feb. The breakfast selections are decent for what they are, and the desk staff was always helpful with restaurant suggestions and directions etc. I came here for Hearst Castle which is just up the road but it's a terrific base of operations for so much of the central coastal area, from Cayucos up to Big Sur. Food and gas are expensive, but what are you going to do, it's away from the population centers so prices are going to be more for just about everything. But there's no more beautiful seashore and overall geography in the world, and if you want to be 10 steps across the street from the beautiful Pacific Ocean, then do yourself a favor and stay here.

Room Tip: The closer to the oceanfront, the better!

Very nice room, amazing bed, with little sitting area off to the side with a cozy fireplace. Continental breakfast was small / limited - but there is a nice little seating area. 2nd floor rooms have limited view of the Pacific. Short , easy walk across the road to the ocean. Very conveniently located near Hearst Castle, San Luis Obispo, and drive up to Big Sur, Carmel, Monterey, and Pebble Beach. Pricing is very reasonable. Strongly recommend. We learned of this place from some friend's children that stayed there on part of their honeymoon. We are recently retired and enjoyed it as well - so it pleases all age groups
