We had no idea that such a lovely experience awaited us at the 9 Iron Inn. Located in a gorgeous spot, just steps from a famous walk along Moonstone Beach, the room was spacious with lots of great touches to make us feel comfortable. Michelle and her family welcomed us like friends. We enjoyed wine and appetizers overlooking the ocean...

We were in Cambria for the day and decided to stay the night. No vacancies on Moonstone Drive. We found the only room left and it was at the 9 Iron Inn. The room was amazing. So comfortable! The aroma of lavender and rosemary was a treat. We met the rest of the guest in the main room for wine...

This is one of our favorite places to stay on Moonstone Beach. We are always welcomed back by Michelle, the manager. She makes a grand breakfast for the guests and has a wonderful wine tasting in the late afternoon. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. We travel 7 hours to get here and she lets guests go to their...

This place is one of a kind. A place where when you stop by, the innkeeper remembers you and hugs you hello upon your return! A genuine compassion for the guest, making sure each one has a wonderful memory of Cambria, and as such, a wonderful memory of the 9 Iron Inn. We hear that the actual moonstones are hard...

Beautifully appointed bed and breakfast accommodation on Moonstone beach in Cambria. The bedroom was decorated and furnished to a high standard. The breakfasts were excellent and the beach and beach walks were a hop across a quiet road. The lady who runs the Inn is a delightful host. We really enjoyed our two nights at the Inn.

My husband and I stayed for 4 nights in the large suite. We loved having the extra space and the jacuzzi tub. The inn was recently completely remodeled, and the style is western coastal casual - a style we much prefer to the Victorian style of many B&Bs. The lobby/breakfast room is large and has a gorgeous view of the...

Just a one night stay as a part of a larger road trip and wish it could have been longer. We had to leave earlier than breakfast was available and management set out a delightful spread for us early. They also provided useful local knowledge about the best restaurant and even upgraded our room. The room itself was terrific with...

Last weekend my daughter got married in Cambria, and we used the 9 Iron as our base of operations. The last time I reviewed this inn, we were on a scouting expedition to decide where relatives and wedding party would be staying, and the innkeeper Michelle was so helpful I said I would have given six stars if I could...

When this property was the Blue Whale, it was an expensive indulgence, but worth it. My wife and I have stayed there over a dozen times. Since being acquired in 2014, the decor has been changed to ranch style and is not very pleasing. The bed in room #4 is old, lumpy and awful. For $300 per night, there are...

Found this place purely by chance because the better know places were sold out or required a minimum stay. So glad we did, because it was a gem. Had rooms 2&3 and each was lovely and unique. Slept like a baby in the very comfortable bed. Large rooms, each with fireplace, microwave and mini fridge. Right across the road from...
