“Large rooms, good restaurant”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is a nice place to stay while travelling Highway One. The rooms (located in cabins) are very large (large enough for families). They are not super-clean (a little dusty) but well-equipped. There are two little (gas) fireplaces which create a nice atmosphere. The food in the restaurant is good (dinner is way better than what you would expect from your breakfast experience which is "ok") and room service and maintenance (we had a little issue with the toilet and they solved it within minutes) both work well too.

There is a nice pool in the middle of the property.

The hotel is located close to the scenic route along the Pacific and within a short drive to Hearst Castle. Cambria is a cozy little town (within walking distance - but the path down there is not wheelchair accessible) with nice coffee bars and restaurants.

We absolutely loved the grounds! Wandering small trails throughout the gardens with a surprise around each corner and behind each small garden gate. We even saw some deer out in the parking lot. We really enjoyed our full breakfast each morning in the restaurant served buffet-style and hearty enough to give a good start to our day. We enjoyed the musical entertainment at night in the bar/lounge as well. The only con was that we choose a lower level floor and there does not appear to be any insulation for sound so we could hear our upstairs neighbor whenever walking around. (When we mentioned this at the front desk they said that they are already remodeling rooms to provide more soundproofing). Also, we were surprised on our 2nd night that when we pulled up to our room the whole row of spaces was taped off so we had to park a ways futher down. It turns out a large tour bus parked there later in the night and proceeded to run its' loud engine for some time that morning in front of our room.

Room Tip: Avoid bottom floor and spend the extra $20 or so for an upper level room to avoid the noise

Thanks to a Travelzoo deal, we celebrated a birthday w/a 2 day get-a-way that we enjoyed so much that we extended to a 3rd day. The grounds are beautiful with gorgeous flowers and tall pines. Our "mini suite" was spacious w/comfortable bed, fireplace, microwave, coffeemaker, and frig. Our voucher covered a dinner for 2 at the Lodge restaurant which was very good and included a nice bottle of wine from the area. We also had a discount voucher for dinner at Linn's and had a fine meal there. The Lodge offers a great daily breakfast as part of their nightly rate. Upon arrival our checkin was easily processed and we were given discount vouchers for wine tastings at several local wineries. There is entertainment nightly in the comfortable lounge. We enjoyed the group that performed on Tuesday night--guitar, flute, percussion w/a male and a female vocalist. Not too loud and there is a dance floor. There is a pool and volleyball court, plus a Spa on site. The Lodge is also "Pet Friendly" with a good sized Dog Park. The front desk staff was very helpful in explaining the various accomodations at the Lodge which has many new units on the property as well as renovations of existing units. Cambria village itself has nice shops and galleries and eating places. Moonstone Beach is picturesque and the famed Paso Robles wine area is just a short drive East. We are already planing a return visit in the fall.

Room Tip: There are a number of new stand-alone single or duplex ground level units. Our 2nd floor corner uni...

We stayed in a large suite for 2 nights with a travelzoo deal. The suite is decent and just a bit outdated in some areas. Overall it provided a comfy and quiet sleep atmosphere. The food is pretty good, we had the breakfast and dinner there. I ordered the prime rib and the quality was good. I especially like the outdoor dinning area at the restaurant. It has ample space for our dog to stay close to us. Get down to the village is really quick, and it only take minutes from the lodge to the main street. We didn't try to walk down..probably next time if we get more time.
Services was good as well, hostess/waiters all have smile on their faces and have good attitude.
I would recommend for a weekend getaway.

We stayed here on a voucher and were pleasantly surprised. Rooms are large and quaint. We were placed on the first floor and a pre teen with her grandmother were above us. Finally had to go ask the child to quit jumping as the racket was disrupting a full day of wine tasting nap.
Breakfast is very tasty with a full range of choices, but nothing fancy. Dinner is wonderful..we had the salmon and scallops which were done to perfection.
Flower gardens are lovely and the sound of fountains can be heard through out the property.
The only/biggest caveat is to get a second floor room as your overhead neighbors are easily heard.

Wife and I took advatage of a Travelzoo deal here that included dinners both here at their own restaurant and at Linn's and reviews for them are done as well. This place evokes a feeling of a lodge in the woods, pine trees galour all draped in that coastal moss from the fog they get. We saw 3 deer off our balcony when we first arrived....beautiful gardens....nice people. We upgraded to one of their larger suites, the one we got had not been redone, as most others had been. We were transformed to "grammas house" with floral wallpapers and old "cabin" looking furnishings.....charming but old....but clean. We were awaken both mornings to the sould of a wild turkey gobbling.....charming. We really did enjoy it there....the lounge has entertainment each evening, we went there one night and they had kareoki which we're not fans of.....stayed for one drink. The restaurant food is superb as is the service, breakfast in the mornings was nice.....we were lucky enough to not have a marine layer at 8am and walked Moonstone beach.....wonderful. Run away to Cambria and stay here but try to get a newer room.

We recently stayed here with good friends, and really enjoyed this resort. The suite we had was very large, had two gas fireplaces, and easily accommodated our family of 5. We appreciated the included breakfast each morning, and enjoyed the pretty grounds, pool and volleyball court.

The rooms were clean and neat, but a bit dated, but that was fine. The only downside I noticed was there seemed to be little soundproofing above us, so people walking around the room above us, and using the water, shower, etc., was quite loud. Fortnuately, they didn't stay up too late.

I would guess the bungalows would be a fine option for anyone bothered by noise.

Otherwise, a great place.

Green Features: Hotel did focus on green practices. I liked soap/shampoo/conditioner dispenser which they noted allowed them to avoid throwing out thousands of small plastic containers every year.
