We stayed at the Burton Inn mid-week and had most enjoyable stay. Ideal location - you can walk to a number of very good restaurants close by and enjoy dinner at restaurants and not have to drive back to the hotel. The wine social at 5 pm gave us an opportunity to chat with the owner and meet other guests at the hotel. Continental breakfast the next day was enjoyable. Great place to stay.

Room Tip: Room 19 was spacious and quiet. Only draw back was it was on the second floor and no elevator.

The location of this hotel is ideal -- just steps away from the hub of Cambria, a quaint and friendly little town on California's Central Coast. Rooms are actually large suites, with fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Very clean. Comfortable bed. Friendly host and free breakfast included. My only disappointment was with the "garden view". Our garden room actually looked out on a tangle of shrubbery and a long handicap ramp. Not exactly the tranquil garden setting I had in mind. But that is my only criticism; everything else was great.

We loved being able to walk out the front door and have the charming town of Cambria right there - and we could walk as little or as much as we wanted to and felt very comfortable walking even after dark.

Terry is a most pleasant hostess.

We had a large suite w/a fireplace and a view of the park. It was obvious that our room had room add-ons. And . .while it was clean, it was in need repair (peeling and/or torn wall paper, areas in need of touch-up paint, etc.) The bathroom is very dated, and the toilet worked poorly - and there was something (I honestly don't remember) about the shower that frustrated my husband (besides the soap dispenser being on the wall by the shower head - so . ..you had to get wetter than maybe desired to get the soap - back or side wall would have been best for the dispenser.) Also, if you are a tub user - no bar soap - you must take the liquid soap bottle to the tub and balance it on the tub edge. It was nice to have extra towels and they were very soft; a couple of our towels appeared to not be clean - so we didn't use them. Room rating below is on our room - we didn't see any other room.

Peanuts were put out each night during the wine hour - but .. then taken in. It would have been nice to have those out during the day, also.

When we booked our reservations, we asked specifically about their breakfast - if there was a protein each AM. We were told there was - not meat, but . .there would be a protein. There was egg one AM and no protein the other mornings we were there. There were very good and unique specialty breads along w/oatmeal or other cereal -

The breakfast room is lovely - bright, sunny and cheery - and the food very attractively presented.

As stated previously, Terry is very pleasant and a fun person. We enjoyed visiting w/her at breakfast, and would have appreciated the opportunity to just visit with ourselves if desired - but . . that wasn't an option. One AM my wife and I were enjoying our time together and Terry came over with her coffee/tea pulled out a chair and joined us. While we know that for some guests, visiting with the innkeeper is part of the experience - it would be nice to check with the people before sitting down at their table.

We were a group of 7 with 4 suites total for our annual get together in Cambria. The rooms were great. Large, quiet and comfortable. Terry took such good care of us that it was hard to leave. We have booked for next year and may actually visit sooner. The evening wine social is not to be missed!! Thanks Terry!!!

Room Tip: All good rooms. Pictures available of each of the 12 suites on their website.

We stayed here for one night in Sept 2011 as part of our trip down the Pacific Coast Highway. It was a big spacious suite in a great location for visiting Hearst Castle. Although breakfast wasn't included in internet bookings, the host still extended the offer to us. A pleasant stay.
