“Chose well from Trip Advisor comments”
Reviewed October 25, 2012

We jst needed an overnight stay in our time in California and chose Moonstone Landing based on previous guest comments. We were not disappointed and spent a very comfortable night in a clean and spacious room. Maybe other rooms had a better view of the sea, but what we had was more than enough for us. The breakfast was good, typical fruit and bread variety but well set out and there was the choice to eat in the reception/ outside area or back in your room.
All in all a really good hotel and also great value.

Moonstone Landing is a small private hotel. The rooms are large and well appointed. If cold enough, the fireplace in each room makes a great addition. Room doors open into an open air corridor, but that didn't bother me. There is a small hot tub but it's not that well placed for enjoyment. Nice breakfast each morning. There are 10 rooms with beach front patios or balconies. If the weather is nice enough, these make great spaces to sit and enjoy the view. Unfortunately, for those without the beach front room, there is not a common space to sit where you can enjoy the outside and beach view. The Inn is located just across from the beach which has a nice boardwalk. There is what appeared to be a nice restaurant next door. Other dining options are just a mile or two away in the town of Cambria.

Room Tip: If the funds allows, the beachfront rooms are the more preferred.

Hello,
Thank you for your review, we're glad you enjoyed your stay. For guests' who do not have the full oceanview rooms, they can always go across the street to the boardwalk which is situated on the bluffs overlooking the ocean and has several sitting areas to enjoy the view. Many of our guests' enjoy one of the best seafood restaurants in the area, The Sea Chest, which is located directly next door to our hotel. Thank you for staying with us.

Sincerely,
Moonstone Landing

Moonstone Landing is a great hotel. The hotel is set vertically to the sea so every room gets a partial, side, view. Very clean and tidy rooms with a large bathroom. We had a good, basic complimentary breakfast. Staff are friendly and helpful and there is a spa pool (which we didn't use as we only stayed one night). Would recommend.

A great place to stay for visiting the fabulous Hearst Castle and this part of Cambria is lovely and romantic. The partial view from the first floor (which I would say is the ground floor for those booking in the UK!) is a bit of a con, had to crane neck to see the ocean! Some of the other hotels in the same stretch seem to have a better set up for the views. Pay a little extra to upgrade. Breakfast was lovely and the room cozy and there are afternoon snacks provided - bonus!

Room Tip: Avoid partial view on first (ground level) floor

Hello,
Thank you for your review as we value all guest input. The second floor partial view rooms do provide a better view of the ocean compared to the 1st floor, for just a slightly higher rate. If a better view is important to guests it is well worth the little extra for the better view. We're glad you found your room to be comfortable and you were able to enjoy our afternoon refreshments. Thank you for choosing Moonstone Landing.

Sincerely,
Moonstone Landing

We stayed here for just one night and our room was fantastic, what a lovely spot! We had a ground floor room overlooking the ocean complete with fireplace (and we did turn it on, it was a cool night). Nice bathroom, very comfy bed. The continental breakfast was quite basic though

We stayed here for 2 nights during our Highway 1 road trip and wish we could have stayed longer! We had an ocean view room which was very large and comfortable with a great bathroom. Very near Hearst castle and the lovely little town of Cambria with its lovely shops and restaurants. Very good breakfast provided in the lobby. Hope to return one day!

Not a luxury hotel, but is very cozy, clean, well located, near Hearst Castle and the beautiful and charming Moonstone Beach. We were in this hotel on the second day of travel, halfway between Los Angeles and San Francisco. The property owner is very helpful and sympathetic. The breakfast is excellent.

Hello,
Thank you for choosing Moonstone Landing. We're happy to hear you enjoyed the clean and cozy feeling of the room, that is one of our families many goals. It's nice to hear one of the Owners were especially helpful for you. With Hearst Castle being only 8 miles north of us, that is one of several area attractions our guests can enjoy. The month of October tends to be especially exciting for visitors to Cambria, as they can enjoy the Annual Scarecrow Festival which brings many funny and whimsical scarecrows scattered throughout the town! We hope you can visit us again!
