“Beautiful Gardens, rooms a bit dated”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 April 2012

We originally booked a regular room at the Cambria Pines, but we found it to be a bit small, and too close to the road. It also was a downstairs room and was too noisy for our taste. However, we upgraded for $30 more. With that change, we had twice the space, two fireplaces, were further from the road and had no one upstairs. In short, we loved it! It was QUIET and peaceful and spacious. My only complaint was the the furniture needs to be updated. The bed was fine, but the couch and chairs were awful. The price of a stay includes dinner and wine, which was great. The food was not first-class, but it was solid and tasty. Breakfast was the usual, but filling. For the price, it was a GREAT DEAL, though. Good lodgings, LOVELY GARDENS, and nice food for less than the cost of a cheap hotel in Santa Barbara. Definitely visit Hearst Castle if you are in the area, and check out the Elephant Seals in the in the spring.

Stayed here in a smaller suite. Beautiful property, landscaped gardens and common areas. Complimentary breakfast buffet was nice, however get there early as it can get crowded. The rooom is clean, but on the older side. Overall, good experience. Close to town and a little drive to the ocean.

Even in the rain this place was beautiful - saw deer each day below our balcony and loved listening to the wind in the pines. Fantastic value for the money on one of their specials through Travelzoo or coupons. Good food, good friends, and beautiful environment. You might pay more for more "swank" but this is the place for me. Kind of like going to camp but for adults. If you are looking for peace, quiet, and relaxation this is the place for you. Well worth it to pay the extra and go for a suite - Living room has a sofa bed and a Murphy bed - little kitchenette comes in handy for snacks and warming up the left overs you will certainly have if you enjoy dinner at the lodge restaurant. Two fireplaces, two televisions and lots of room to stretch out - even if you bring the family or travel with friends. When in Cambria - this is a great place to stay. We have been there 4 times over the past couple of years and I can't wait to go back again. It's a home away from home.

Room Tip: Suites are very spacious. Look for their specials

We stayed at the Cambria Pines Lodge the first week of April...it was great! The property is very nice, well maintained, beautiful landscaping and awsome heated pool. The town of Cambria is a must see place..small but with lots of shops that cater to many different tastes..from antiques/thrift stores too sports memorabila to upscale galleries and boutiques..and plenty of dining, fine and casual. I reccommed Main st Grill very casual, very tasty..ribs,burgers,sanwiches and big salads..cash only! Las Cambritas mexican food very good also..the burritos are huge can feed two. And stop by Brett White photography gallery..he has some awsome work there. Cambria is perfect for the whole family or a romantic getaway.

My sister, visiting from Georgia, and I stayed here for one night in April. We had a very nice room with a small enclosed patio with a table and chairs. The beds were so comfortable! We went on the Travelzoo special which included the dinner. The food was just average, but the service was great! The lounge was fun, with music and some couples dancing - but a little too noisy for conversation. Both of us are gardeners and very much enjoyed seeing the grounds and the kitchen gardens. Beware of the walk to the village, the way down is a little precarious and the walk up is quite strenuous! We found the staff very friendly and speedy at both check-in and check-out times.
