We only needed a place to get a good nights sleep. Castle Inn delivered. We chose room 24 on the second floor in the back. You can see the ocean out the window but if you are going for an ocean view I wouldn't recommend this room. Robert checked us in and gave us a recommendation for lunch at the...

We really enjoyed our stay at the Castle Inn! The view of the ocean from the balconies of the 2nd floor at Castle Inn were amazing! They have great deck chairs out on their front lawn to watch the sun go down. In addition, there were folding chairs in our room closet to bring out the balcony for the same...

Whilst driving from San Diego to San Fran up the Pacific coast highway, we stopped at this beautiful place. Views are exceptional, hotel is wonderful with great rooms and facilities. Breakfast was continental style and the best all holiday. Great value for money and the staff were just lovely! We will be back when we next come to the US

This is a nice family style hotel. The rooms are updated, clean and comfortable. The hotel is directly across the street from the ocean and a nice walkway. The breakfast is a not much to talk about but ok. For the price you will be happy here.

This beach is a very quiet and isolated piece of paradise. Our room was romantic with a fireplace and overlooked the ocean with a full view of the setting sun! It was a short drive to downtown Cambria, Hearst Castle and the elephant seals!

Comfortable and clean rooms. Ocean views and easy ocean access. Wonderful staff. We stay here every time in Cambria - dog friendly and nice grounds. On-site breakfast is appreciated. Over the years we have stayed in a number of places in the area and settled on this place years ago.

My daughter and i have stayed here the past 3 years. The grounds are well kept. Staff is friendly and answered any questions we had. Rooms are decent, bathrooms a bit tiny. It is a short jaunt to the boardwalk where you can walk and talk and go to the beach. We could hear the waves crashing as we sat...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It was one of the very first motels built along the Cambria coast when cattle still roamed on Moonstone Beach Drive. The property boasts one of the best geographical locations on the beach. Right in front of the lodge are amazing tide pools to discover sealife, gorgeous lookouts, Leffingwell Landing Park and a wide-open beach upon which to stroll. The grounds at the Inn are broad and situated with comfortable sitting areas for enjoyable ocean viewing and people-watching. All of the guestrooms offer views of the ocean, but the upstairs rooms provide an excellent vantage point to watch the daily sunsets. The rooms at Castle Inn are simple but more than adequate to provide a wonderful stay at the beach. It is our intention to make the property one of the best values along Moonstone Beach and a great option for families. ... more   less
