Just returned from three nights at Moonstone Landing hotel. Room 207 had view of ocean from the side window. Slept with window open to hear the sounds of the waves. Recommend second floor (200s) for better views and no car headlights beaming into room. Nice sized room with table near the window. Large bathroom. Decent breakfast -- fruit, muffins, yoghurt, granola, etc. available in lobby on back of building. Peek view of ocean from some tables. Outside seating too. Good service, no complaints. Will return.

Room Tip: Second floor rooms towards ocean have better views (naturally).

This was our second stay in Cambria and our first motel was very nice but twice as expensive as this and did not have as nice a breakfast or afternoon snack buffet. I recommend paying the extra $10 or $20 for a second floor room as the first floor rooms are right beside the parking lot. The staff were very nice. Our room was very spacious and had a nice white water view. We only paid $125 for room 206 midweek. Worth every penny, and more!

Room Tip: I stayed in 206, which has a nice ocean view but my sister stayed in 209 which had a even nicer view...

I have been visiting Cambria, and Moonstone Beach for nearly twenty years now. I've stayed in most of the hotels and motels on the beach. Recently I stayed at Moonstone Landing for the first time. I immediately fell in love with it. First off, the front desk staff were wonderful. She upgraded us to a ocean view room for just a little more, something my parents really enjoyed. The room had a fabulous ocean view patio, which I enjoyed a lot, even though it was cold at night. A little wine will warm you right up! The rooms were gorgeous and the beds were really comfortable. The breakfast was continental, but there were many choices and they were very nicely presented. I love the eating room, although get there early to avoid crowded times as there is less room to sit down. The housekeeping staff was also very efficient and friendly. The prices are great at this hotel, much better than other hotels nearby. For the money, this is your best bet on Moonstone Beach in Cambria. Would stay here again and again.

Stayed: February 2014

Two couples stayed one night late February. When we booked I asked for at least one room with 'a view'. Upon registering we realized a partial ocean view was a glimpse of the water over the parking lot with no outside patio/balcony. Disappointed, I asked about a better view and the clerk was very gracious and offered the last of the ocean front rooms on the first floor at a very good price. It was definitely worth it, the view was amazing to enjoy on our private patio! There are only about 8 or 10 rooms facing the ocean across the road, the rest border the parking lot. (It would have been nice to have some kind of guest patio or something to look out over the water without having to pay the extra room charge) The rooms themselves were huge, very nicely appointed, big bathroom, nice sitting area, and oh that fireplace! They had a nice continental breakfast in the morning and a sweet hot tub although not on the water-that would've been perfect!

Room Tip: Ask for their best price on ocean front, it's worth it!

This is one of the nicest places to stay in Cambria. The people couldn't be nicer. The rooms are fantastic and some have wonderful ocean views without the steep price! A fireplace in every room. Huge bathrooms. Huge rooms. Wine and goodies in the afternoon at sunset. A pleasant and filling help yourself breakfast in the morning. It's spotless and they are currently doing maintenance to keep the rooms in good repair and ready for high season. This is being done do quietly that only if you see it, like we did, would you know they are doing it. Comfy beds! Lots of pillows. Right on the beach. And right next door to the BEST seafood restaurant in town, The Sea Chest. They have a wonderful enclosed hot tub that can be used all day and into the evenings. It's easy from the guest rooms do you the guests don't hear it.

Room Tip: Choose room 210, 208 or 212

About 10 of the rooms available have straight ahead ocean views with balconies to sit out on and enjoy your wine and snacks while watching the sun set.

Snacks and wine glasses provided by the hotel. -
Bring your own bottle of wine.
All the other rooms have pick a boo views of the ocean..

Additionally the location is perfect for getting in line to dine at the Sea Chest Restaurant.
(This restaurant do not take reservations.
But they are right next door to Moonstone Landing).
See my review of Sea Chest Restaurant here on Trip Advisor.

We stayed for 3 nights and got to see at least 5 different sets of management running the place. ALL of which really seemed to care about each of the guests and really trying to help make the guests stay in Cambria fulfilling.

The hot tub area has just been redone as of 2/14/14 and in a clean earthy modern style.
Also each of the rooms floor has recently been redone, from carpet to a hard surface flooring.

The rates are quite reasonable and you may be able to do just as well by calling direct. 800-830-4540

We look forward to staying here again -
The next time we return to visit Cambria and the Hearst Castle.

My wife and I decided to stay an extra night in Cambria a couple weeks ago. We pulled into the Moonstone landing on a whim on the way out of town. Kira was working the front desk and she was very kind to us and got us a 1st floor ocean front room with a patio for $150 a night.

It was only 10 am and we were able to put our stuff in our room right away. The room was very nice, excellent view of the coast and a great bathroom as well. The continental breakfast was ok. But for sure a good choice when heading to moonstone beach. We will be sure to check it out on the way to the coast once again.
