“Great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 February 2012

Cambria is expensive if you want a beachside location - compared to other hotels the price was good. Adequate cold breakfast and pleasant rooms with little road noise. Our trip was made magic by seeing elephant seals nearby with their new born pups. I gather the hotel has recently re-opened under new owner.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 January 2012

A week after the New Year was a slow week in Cambria, so there were not too many tourists in the city in general or at this particular property.
We had a 2-queen beds room on the first floor. The room was amazingly clean. I mean, super-clean. Nice towels, soaps, shampoo etc. There is a mini-fridge (which is very handy when travelling with small kids) and a coffee-maker in a room. The room itself was rather small, but we did not stay indoors much. There were plenty of extra pillows and blankets. The mattresses were rather on a hard side, which did not work out for me - I had a backpain in the morning. There is no heater or AC in the room, but there is a heater in the shower: we had to turn it on to heat up a room a bit in the evening, as it gets really cold during winter-time.
The breakfast, which is served in a <breakfast room> consists of prepacked 4 kinds of cereals, fresh fruits (apples, bananas, oranges), muffins/scones/, coffee, tea, orange juice/milk. You can either eat it right there or take it with you to the room on a tray.

The hotel is conveniently located at Moonstone Beach at the <hotel row>. It's right across the stairs that lead to the tidepool (when there is a low tide).

Anyway, we had a great time here in January, during the low, slow season.

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
