Needed a nice getaway and found it at the Blue Dolphin Inn. Thew view was awesome. Having our own personal Happy Hour on the patio while watching the sun set and hearing the waves crash on the beach was awesome. My wife and I will definitely be back.

The room was perfect; all of the amenities one might need, plenty of towels, etc...the breakfast was a treat, the staff was amazing, & the view was breathtakingly beautiful! My wife & I have spent many days in this wonderful little paradise called Cambria, & we both agree that the blue dolphin inn cannot be beat!

Friends anniversary, we booked rooms for them and ourselves. We gave them a patio room, which was absolutely gorgeous. Our room was close and had excellent ocean view also. It was a perfect overnight stay!

Had a king room on second floor. I liked that I could have my windows open!! I could hear the ocean waves. Interior of hotel is pretty. Great front desk service. Breakfast was...

Located across from the mighty Pacific Ocean on a quiet local road in Cambria, this place has exceeded our expectations every time we've visited -almost yearly over the past nine years. The rooms are lovely, small but quiet and charming, the staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast delicious. We use this location as our home base for touring the...

We were visiting nearby Hearsts Castle (another strong recommendation and needed somewhere to stay). There was confusing information on Expedia whether they accept kids (they do) so booked direct with hotel. Arrived late tired and late but found small but delightful hotel. The little considerations just make you feel good like the homemade type cookies. Rooms were clean, roomy and...

First time visitor, Moonstone beach was great. Walking distance to two nice restaurants. Boardwalk right in front of hotel. Rude people parking cars in front of your hotel room. Signs should be posted. Views blocked Other then that great service

Stayed here based on all the positive reviews and we were not disappointed. It met all our expectations and more. Perfectly located on Moonstone beach with the wooden walkway literally on the doorstep and the sound of crashing waves. From the moment we walked in we were made to feel so welcome, our room which was only a standard king...

“ We were there when it was windy and raining and unable to take advantage of the patio area for breakfast. Our room did not really allow for a place to eat. There was a desk but it had so many knick knacks on it (for décor) that we had to move it all. I would declutter the room so guests have areas for their own items during there stay. Seemed to be decorations everywhere, night stands, desk, kitchenette area which weren't needed and actually hard to work around. I am not sure if all the rooms have this much in it. That being said we would definitely stay again as that is minor!! We were VERY Happy with the hotel over all and truly enjoyed our stay!!”
