My wife and I stayed here in May on a motorcycle trip along the PCH. The hotel is by the ocean - right next to it! And the price was great for the location. We didn't stay in the room much, but did so much just outside of the hotel. We arrived at 6PM and checked in. We ate at the Moonstone Bar and Grill next door which is a great restaurant where you can dine outside and see the ocean and the sunset. We then went back to the hotel and sat outside on the huge chairs they have all around the property. We sat in front of the hotel and watched the sunset while sipping libations. It was beautiful. Then we crossed the street from the hotel and went along the ocean path at dusk. Saw the seals playing with each other and enjoyed the moonlit night along the water. I say that this is a wonderful place and Helga at the front desk is very helpful. The rooms are not much in the way of amenities but who cares! There is a fridge, cable television a shower with soaps and shampoos as well as a heater. The WiFi is fast and strong. The bed is firm! There is a heated pool and a jacuzi. The grounds are clean and pretty. Plenty of parking. Get a room on the 2nd floor where you can see the ocean too but you won't be in your room much.
Loved it here and will stay again. The price is too good for the location. Other places were sold out and were over $200. This place was under $150 and some rooms were under $120.
- 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
