The location and view from pretty much any room on this property is amazing! The rooms are super clean and very CHARMING! The only thing that I think they should work on is their continental breakfast. Otherwise, this is an awesome choice and we plan to stay there again!

You can see, smell and hear the ocean. Walk right across the street and enjoy wildlife and the ocean. Clean rooms with very friendly customer service. Close to Hearst Castle and a small town. We will definitely stay there again.

Had a great time and the location was fabulous. Hearst Castle is a must visit in the area and the seal lookout was breathtaking. Would like to go back and spend more time sightseeing in the area in the near future

We booked the Inn as a last minute trip and the price was tempting. We usually stay at higher priced lodgings on Moonstone Beach. The best part of this hotel is the access to the ocean. There are a few chairs to sit on at the front of the property that allows for a partial view of the Pacific. The...

Was very happy with accomadations. Would recommend to family and friends. We will be back. Very clean and friendly. Recently redone and it showed. I'm kinda fussy about clean and I was pleasantly surprised. My daughter who I took is asking me for the information so she can go with friends.

We've stayed at the Castle Inn 5 times. They have done their best to keep up with the times. During one visit, we had an emergency and had to return home a day early. They refunded our money for that day, when they didn't have to. Now that's class !

We went to Camria on our California tour. The room was nice and clean. Pool was clean and heated, comfortable sunbeds and chairs. The breakfast was a Continental with a little extra. Near a good restaurant.

High standard on rooms. Quiet. No disturbing traffic. Safe parking. Perfect located close to the marina and the city center at walking distance. Unfortunately very bad breakfast, not uncommon on american hotels.

The Castle Inn is a nicely updated mid century motel on a stretch of California coast that is just perfect. The room is nicely appointed with very comfortable beds with a beach cottage vibe. But more impressive is the beach boardwalk right across the road from the Inn. From the viewing platforms or beach you can watch marine life and...

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
