We just returned from a 2 night stay at Moonstone Landing. This was our second stay there and we really think it is one of the best properties on Moonstone.

I wasn't expecting the room to be as nice as it was --- especially since I got the last one available, and it was a "partial view" ocean room. The room was spacious, with partial wood floors, and a nicely sized bathroom. The entire room seemed newer and remodeled. The hotel is literally across a 2 lane road from the... More

Just returned from three nights at Moonstone Landing hotel. Room 207 had view of ocean from the side window. Slept with window open to hear the sounds of the waves.

This was our second stay in Cambria and our first motel was very nice but twice as expensive as this and did not have as nice a breakfast or afternoon snack buffet.

Two couples stayed one night late February. When we booked I asked for at least one room with 'a view'.
