Very good place to stay. Service is very personal. Unique way to serve the breakfast, we loved it. Best part is that we had wine and dinner is the lawn during Sunset with breath taking views. Newly renovated. We definitely recomend this hotel.

The experience here is incredible. Everyone at the front desk was wonderful including the owner. I've seldom met a hotel with owners/employees as nice and conscientious as this location. There is a spiritual quality to this place really unmatched as far as hotels went on our 7 day vacation around central california. The room is immaculate with every amenity you...

Loved that you could sit outside and watch the ocean drink wine...breakfast was delicious and loved the 5 o'clock and 8 o'clock snacks. The staff was very friendly and the room comfortable...close to the Sea Chest and Moonstone Walk..even though this is a pet friendly hotel we never heard any of the pets.

We’d been searching for our perfect let’s-escape-with-the-dog-for-the-weekend hotel within easy driving distance of Los Angeles and just found it in Cambria Shores Inn. It ticked all the boxes: very dog-friendly (our spoiled pup got a welcome basket on check-in and biscuits every morning); close to lots of good dog-friendly hikes (Moonstone Beach boardwalk, Fiscalini Ranch Reserve, Cayucos Beach); close to...

Set on a rise above Moonstone Beach just a few miles from Hearst Castle. The rooms and service are above and beyond. There are complimentary hors d'oeuvres and brownies set out right before sunset so that you can sit with your own libations in the many Adirondack chairs overlooking gorgeous flower and cactus gardens and watch the whales play and...

I cannot believe this place gets a 4.5. It's clean, yes. Room is comfortable, but it's a motel. "Ocean View"? Yeah, if you leave your door open. Sound of the waves? No, street noise overpowers it. And the price is outrageously high for what you get. For over $300 a night (including taxes) for a standard room, mediocre continental breakfast,...

We had a wonderful time at the Cambria Shores Inn. The staff is very nice, from the first time I spoke to them on the phone, right through my stay, everyone was so friendly. The inn is very quaint, only 24 rooms. It seems like every room has an ocean view. There is a continental breakfast basket waiting for you...

Welcome to a small piece of amazing beauty, calm and welcome. Cozy room, grand ocean vista, comfy lawn chairs, yummy breakfast, and most of all, doggy heaven. Doesn't get any better. We'll be regulars for years to come

Hotel was clean and had all the requirements for a great weekend away. Peaceful town with gorgeous boardwalk right outside the door. Fresh brownies at check in and breakfast brought to your door in the morning. Fireplace, fridge And microwave in the rooms. Nice patio to eat your breakfast on outside.
