Reviewed October 26, 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for one night on our way to Hearst Castle. Though it's not luxurious, it's very comfortable, clean, and convenient.

PROS:
- location can't be beat...it's across the street from the ocean!
- well-appointed rooms with a coffee maker and fridge for guests' use, in additional to a small dining table and chairs
- open breakfast and hot beverage bar in lobby (hot cocoa packets, teas, and flavored creamers to go)
- fireplace in rooms add a wonderfully cozy touch
- lots of channels

CONS:
- it's an older building, laid out "motel style" but given everything else, that's hardly a con

Location opposite the beach was great. Spacious room and super bathrooms made our short stay very comfortable. The staff could not of been more helpful. Nibbles in the afternoon and breakfast was a nice surprise for us. We would love to come back some time.

This is a great place to stay. The rooms are very large. The Jacuzzi tub & fireplace, plus ocean views make it hard to beat. The staff is great, very friendly & helpful. I recommend this for any traveler. Good spot to stay for traveling to Morrow Bay & Hearst Castle. I've toured Hearst Castle several times years before but I enjoyed the night tour for the first time. The period actors and costumes were fun.

Room Tip: Splurge on the ocean front 2nd floor room. The view is spectacular and you can hear the ocean at nig...

The view from Rooms 101-104 is outstanding. We loved the sound and left our door open to hear the waves. The breakfast was excellent and varied and there was plenty to keep us going until lunchtime. We lunched at Cambria and took in the Halloween sites there. Then returned by 5 pm for amazing appetizers. The choices were many and very tasty. We walked to dinner at the two restaurants close by Moonstone Landing. Of course, our initial reason for our mini-vacation was to visit Heart's Castle. It was only 6 miles away and was everything expected. All in all, we had a great time. Moonstone Landing was perfectly clean, unusually accomodating and friendly. We would go again. It was a little pricey; however, you need to consider not having to purchase a breakfast or appetizers. That brings the price to a reasonable one. We will go back. Plus, October is perfect weather at the ocean.

Room Tip: We did the hot tub and it was just the right temp, spotlessly clean and added to our adventure in t...

Thank you so much for your kind review. It's wonderful to hear you enjoyed the quality of our property. We're glad you appreciated our continental breakfast and afternoon refreshments. October is definitely a nice time of year for us as it tends to be when we have our warmer weather and we can enjoy the Scarecrow Festival. We look forward to seeing you again.

We stayed one night at Moonstone Landing after reading the reviews from Tripadvisor and it was a great choice. Moonstone Landing is located opposite Moonstone Beach and next to the very popular Sea Chest restaurant. Our room was huge beyond our expectations and clean too. The bed was soft and comfortable. The gas fireplace kept us nice and warm at night. The staff were professional and friendly. Our stay was so comfortable that we wished we had stayed another night. Definitely a good midway stop between LA and San Francisco.

Room Tip: The upper floor gives a better view of the coast.

Perfect hotel for our PCH road trip. Very clean, sniper comfy beds, gas fireplace, very professional staff. Thin walls but we passed out and slept through anything that could have happened. Highly recommend.

I decided book in this hotel because the reviews in Tripadvisor. Everything was great. Nice hotel, nice room, nice bathroom. Nice view. The little town was like a terror movie town because was decorated of halloween. The front desk girl, Georgia is a very nice girl. Only one bad moment. The last day, the other woman from the frontdesk ask me where I am from. When I told her Colombia she made a unnice joke that took off my 5 stars for this hotel.
