This is a "Dog Friendly" property. People friendly too.
The room was very comfortable, well appointed and furnished. The bed was very comfortable. Coffee maker, mini fridge, microwave. Dog bowls (water and food). Gas fireplace.
In the ofice, they have dog cookies, coffee, and the most delicious brownies! In the afternoon, there is a tray of cheese and crackers, crudites/dip, and a bottle of wine.
Sean and Dean were very hospitable, offering brownies, wine and snacks, and they helped us with our restaurant selection (we needed a restaurant with a patio to allow us to keep our dog with us) for dinner.
The hotel is on Moonstone Beach Drive. It is NOT directly on the beach, but is above it and across the street. You walk across the street to a wooden boardwalk. (There are a LOT of tiny squirrels [or maybe some related animal] that live under the walkway and jump underneath for safety as people and dogs approach.) There are paths down to the beach. There are no hotels directly on Moonstone Beach.
Unfortunately we didn't have time for more than a few short visits to the beach -- one dusk walk along the beach, one moon-light walk and a brief play on the beach in the morning. Next visit, I hope to spend at least two nights, so we can spend some more time at the beach and relaxing at the hotel.
Cambria Shores Inn was not originally my first choice for a place to stay near Hearst Castle, but it is now. I could not have been happier with the facilities and people.
