Stayed here on a travelzoo promotion which really made the value amazing! We had a large 'suite' which was good as far as size, two fireplaces, a sitting room with murphy bed and pull out couch, small fridge. It would work for a group to stay in bevause of the ample space but it wasnt the best for staying IN the room to relax. Needs major renovations and you could hear people loudly in the surrounding lodging. The bed was good though. So we slept fine and went out most of the day anyway.

The promo included a free dinner and bottle of wine at the cambria pines restaurant, which was surprisngly good. Our filets were cooked perfectly and the wine was local and very good. The promo also included free breakfast which was at the same restaurant. The atmosphere outside by the gardens was amazing for enjoying the buffet breakfast. The gardens on property are gorgeous and worth checking out. The paths and trails were awesome also. The pool and hot tub was always crowded but good to have. We got an hour in the hot tub to ourselves before it filled up on night one.

Also amazing was the bar at the lodge. Wr saw a great band friday night, so we had a great time and walked back to the room after.

The promo also included a free entree at linns famous restaurant in cambria. So worth it..their dinner was amazing. Perfection. Even the lemonade was amazing. And they are world famous for their pie, so thatbis a must!

The promo also included 7 free wine tastings in the area and also paso robles. So worth it. Paso robles is gorgeous and we loved seeing all the wineries in the country, away from city center. We loved sculpterra, cass, harmony cellars and wild horse winery. Just breathtaking. The drive over highway 46 is amazingly beautiful as well.

Cambrias moonstone beach and friscelli beach parks are so gorgeous with long pathways and amazing views. Worth the long walks!

...but wouldn't choose it for couples. Or those interested in a more upscale experience. First the good points. The Lodge was a good spot for our girls' weekend away, with the large suite the right size for four of us. The Sojourn Spa on the grounds offered wonderful massages and facials. The grounds were in full bloom in late March and I could see how wedding parties would choose this spot for its romantic backdrop and ability to house many guests. The Lounge features live music and it was fun to people gaze while downing a beer. The pricing is very reasonable and even more so if you can catch a Groupon or Travelzoo.
BUT, the rooms are tired. 'Rustic' is gilding the lily. Both the toilet and the sink were plugged up while we were there. The free breakfast was not special in any way, though it was filling. The second morning we were there, we skipped it and went into town to eat.
Cambria is a lovely place for a weekend getaway, but if I were coming back with my husband I would definitely stay on Moonstone Beach. The boardwalk there is the perfect place to view the rugged California coast.

Do not stay here until they've finished renovating all of the rooms. Wildrose room 111 was horrible. It smelled like mildew and smoke. I tried to switch three times with three different people and was refused even on a Sunday night. I don't know where these 5 star reviews are coming from maybe from someone who received a new room, I guess. Also, if you get the first floor you're screwed. The walls are paper thin. The lounge is cool and diiner was OK. Other than that this place needs some help.

Room Tip: Get a newly remodeled room or do not stay here.

After a long drive up Hwy 1, we wanted to rest for the night and Cambria is about halfway for us. I hadn't stayed anywhere in Cambria, and decided to take a chance with the Pines Lodge. It's about 3 miles off Hwy 1, so no beach view or easy walk to the beach, but nice located close to Cambria Village. The rooms are like cottages and after you check in, you will drive your vehicle and park (hopefully) in front of your room. It's kind of like going to "camp" if you can remember how it was done back in the 50s and 60s. I booked the extra large family sized room, which has a master bedroom and a pull down bed. Small kitchenette and separate TV room works great for families. Great value for around $160!

Room Tip: Ask for the family suites upstairs.

This is a great place, delicious food, great wine, friendly staff. We were there week before Christmas, the Christmas Market with lights and other decorations amazing stuff. Great location, wineries around in the areas. Live music Friday and Saturday night in the bar lounge. We had excellent, great time. Beautiful drive there and beautiful drive around the area. It was our first time and we love this place. This is one of those old gems, knows how to continue delivering great times for couples and families.

Room Tip: Find package deals for this place.
