Spacious, clean room overlooking Moonstone Beach. Includes a fridge, a microwave and a continental breakfast. Good value. Saved a hundred bucks by staying in a "partial ocean view" room, which was just fine. Only disappointment was the too-soft mattress. Other than that, I would recommend for a short stay.

It’s nice to hear you appreciated the cleanliness and quality of your room, including the continental breakfast. We feel we offer a quality product at a reasonable price. We hope you informed our Front Desk about the mattress so that we could make sure that it wasn’t just a matter of personal taste. Thank you for staying with us and...

Beautiful, clean, very spacious rooms! Definitely worth paying the extra for the top floor ocean view -- it was wonderful! First visit to the area and we fell in love with it.

The surroundings are certainly beautiful, but we weren't sleeping outside on the beach here. For the small, bare, dated rooms, unhappy woman at checkin, and uncomfortable beds, the price was a little much. When I overheard what they were charging for rooms with a view, I was floored. It's a motel, guys. Not too impressed.

Upon reading your review, we almost had to ask ourselves if you were reviewing the right property. Our rooms are rather large in size ranging from a minimum of 377 square feet up to 494 square feet, in comparison to the other properties here that range from 200 square feet to 500 square feet.

We stopped for 1 night although the receptionist tried to charge us for 2, have yet to check my credit card statement to see if she actually put it through.

Thank you for sharing your experience. In checking your reservation, we found that you were only charged for 1 night and not 2.

Cambria itself is beautiful, and the views across the road into the ocean and beach were spectacular. The Inn itself has lovely, spacious rooms, and was really well run. Considerate, clean and well appointed. My only reservation is, considering the room prices, the breakfast. It's functional, with inadequate seating for all guests. BUT - I wouldn't let that put you...

Stayed there one night on our highway 1 journey from SF to LA. It's a nice inn but nothing special as long as accommodation is concerned.

Try to get the front view rooms, great staff, very nice rooms (large). Nice little town and close to some beautiful wineries. High recommend. There is a little breakfast as part of your stay and a seafood restaurant next door.

No one has air conditioning on the Central Coast. Our moderate weather doesn't warrant it, with the exception of a few days a year. We don't know of any hotels in our area that has air conditioning. Nor do any of the homes.

Hello,

The Ocean front rooms with 2 queen beds only have 1 large lounge chair in the room as there is not ample space for 2. And yes, we have discontinued the afternoon refreshments due to the large volumes of food we would have to discard when nobody came up for the refreshments. Instead, we have added items to our breakfast buffet, including hard boiled eggs.

We hope to see you soon.
