We stayed in the ocean view room at the front of the property & it was gorgeous. We had our own chairs set up in front of our room overlooking the beach & we spent a lot of time out there just taking in the gorgeous scenery.

Where do I start? A YouTube Vlogger opened my eyes to Cambria and were they right!!! I knew from the moment I drove down Moonstone Beach Drive that I would love it. This little Inn was so quaint and charming, we lacked and needed nothing. Rooms were a little on the older side but that’s what lent itself to the charm. Don’t EVER remodel. Every morning we woke up to a picnic basket with coffee, OJ & amazing breakfast burritos which we enjoyed in our chairs outside of our rooms in a garden overlooking the ocean. After which we walked off breakfast across the street on Moonstone boardwalk. The Inn is also a short drive away from Main Street Cambria which has a lot of options for dining, interesting shops, small boutique vineyards and just an overall quintessential small town vibe of slow pace and relaxation. My fiancée and I did a 10 day road trip with my sister and her husband with other coastal stops along PCH & we all agreed that this was our favorite stop. This place stole a piece of my heart, and we will be back.

I can't say enough about this property. It was our first time here and we were very impressed. The location is top notch right across the street from a beautiful beach with tidepools, harbor seals sleeping on the rocks, and hiking trails. Just down the road about a 5 minute walk was a wonderful restaurant called the Moonstone Beach Bar and Grill. Go early because the place packs up. The Inn itself is lovely. We stayed in a regular hotel style room which had a fireplace (all rooms do), with pillow topper beds, comfortable bedding, a mini fridge, microwave, coffee making equipment, and a beautiful shower. The sink was a beautiful quartz with plenty of room to spread your toiletries out on. Coffee, hot chocolate, tea, and cookies and muffins available from 7: am - 9: pm in the office. There are 3 outdoor gas fireplaces with comfortable cushions to sit around protected by wind glass. We also enjoyed the hot tub and the year-round heated pool. Breakfast baskets are left on a hook outside your room with items that you checked off the night before. We had breakfast burritos, yogurt fruit parfait, and pastries, along with carafes of milk and orange juice. Great day trips to Hearst Castle, The elephant Seals, Ragged Point, Cayucos, and Morro Bay. We had a fun and relaxing 4 days.
