We have come to Cambria numerous times in the last few years and have always enjoyed ourselves but I have to say this hotel has been my favorite. I was surprised to see it was only a two star. It's so clean and nice with pretty wood floors (I'm sure it's laminate but it was very nice looking) and a...

Love room 25, but all rooms are great. Breakfast delivered in a basket in the morning to your door, (even with a dog biscuit for your pup). Munchies at Happy Hour (no booze served)...such a beautiful ocean view. Extra relaxing. We love this place.

Cambria is a peaceful little town, we love it! This place is wonderful, clean, and well appointed. I will definitely be coming back to stay here in the future, simply because this place is so nice! Hope you find it this way as well!

This is a very nice small motel (25 Rooms) overlooking the ocean across the road. Full kitchen and a fireplace. There are a lot of chairs to set on and watch the sunrise, sunset, gulls, and water. The motel sets up on a small hill so you can look down on the road. The rooms are nice, but, we were...

I'm a frequent visitor to Cambria and have stayed at many of the hotels on Moonstone Beach. I've often walked or driven by this hotel and it stood out because of the exquisite succulent landscaping done by Grow owner Nick Wilkinson. I was always sceptical about staying there, however, because it is a well-known dog-friendly hotel. When Groupon offered a...

While from the outside the Cambria Shores looks like a motel, the room was appointed with bedding befitting of a finer hotel, a fireplace, microwave, coffee pot, etc. Conveniently located on the southern end of the magnificent Pacific Coast Highway, you can clearly hear the calming waves of the ocean from your room and enjoy views of the same in...

Owners and staff of Cambria Shores Inn go out of their way to ensure a peaceful, relaxing, idyllic experience. Starting with well appointed, clean, updated rooms, each with a flat screen television, fireplace and kitchenette, right down to the beautiful, succulent-dotted landscaping – you will be amazed. While dog-friendly, you’ll be hard pressed to find any evidence of the previous...

Family and fur-family stayed at Windrush House... spacious, full kitchen that accommodated everyone. Continental breakfast was delicious and service is exceptional! Located across street from gorgeous ocean for morning doggie walks and interior glass walls for unobstructed ocean view. Walking distance from popular dining. Definitely our #1 choice!

This place is a wonderful dream. Cambria is just idyllic and one of the most beautiful places I've ever been. Amazing landscape, nice buildings and a really relaxing ambiance. The right place to relax after 2 weeks travelling through the US. The Inn with its plants and yard fits perfectly with the area and the nature. It has it's price,...
