We stayed at the Moonstone Cottage portion of the Blue Dolphin Inn. The cottage was simply adorable with lots of cute accessories and decor. Our cottage was directly across from the beach and had wonderful views! Every morning, our pre-ordered breakfast was delivered at the requested time and was fresh and delicious! The bathroom had wonderful products and our shower...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 20 January 2017

Recently stopped for an overnight in Cambria during a road trip from San Francisco to San Diego. We were delighted to find a super clean, spacious, top service hotel with fireplace with unobstructed ocean views. We had no reservations and were a little concerned about the "last room". Nothing to fear. The hotel is completely renovated, the service gracious. The...

Thank you for your review of Blue Dolphin Inn. We often hear that guests wish they made it a two day stop. Cambria is a wonderful surprise that is worth exploring. We always love hearing that our staff made you feel welcome and that we will be seeing you again.

We had an ocean view room with patio access. Breakfast delivered to the room is a nice treat and was tasty. Love that the bathroom is down the hall from the bedroom area which gives privacy. Loved the jetted tub and enjoyed relaxing in that! Room was clean and has a nice floor plan. We very much enjoyed our stay...

We have stayed at several places in this area, and keep returning to the Blue Dolphin Inn. It is quiet, clean, small and lovely. If you have time to enjoy the ocean view, a room on the second floor is worth the extra money. If you are just passing through, any of the non-view rooms are comfortable and attractive, too.

We have stayed at Blue Dolphin many times and every time have had a great experience. Highly recommended. Very quiet and comfortable. We are always treated warmly and friendly. The com. breakfast is a welcome touch so we can start our day and not be rushed.

Wonderful property, very, very nice and romantic. Enjoyed our room with a fireplace, great view of the ocean, and amazing breakfast and service. We were shown two rooms and were able to choose which one we wanted. Great stay and we will return.

My two daughters and I shared a most comfortable room, and what stands out in our mutual memory is that delicious breakfast brought to our room which set us up for a great day of travel. It was the first of a week to mark my 90th birthday.

From the moment we walked in the door until we left the next day the service was amazing. The hotel itself has beautiful beach views. The room is very well stocked with amenities. Very romantic. We'll be returning for sure.

We chose the Blue Dolphin on a whim and we hit the jackpot! The rooms are well appointed and very comfortable. They will bring breakfast to your room but we asked to be served on one of the balconies facing the ocean and they did. Easy parking. There is a boardwalk right accross the street that is a little over...

“ 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!!”
