The Rigdon House had a quaint and charming feel. The room was very spacious and the common areas were very pretty. We did not have time to take advantage of the amenities (drinks, food).

The hotel and room were quite charming as well as comfortable! The room had its own thermostat, the bathroom was large with toiletries provided, and plenty of hot water for bath or shower. We had a balcony, plus there is a lovely patio out back. The staff was very friendly and helpful. In the early evening they set up a wine social with excellent snacks such as olives, focaccia, bread with olive oil and flavored vinegars. In the morning you help yourself to a breakfast that includes coffee, tea, juices, various breads, bagels, oatmeal, cereal, and hard-boiled eggs. The cost was better than reasonable for such a lovely place! I definitely recommend the Rigdon House if you are staying in or near Cambria.

Great location and accommodations.

Pros: Location, wine/cocktail hour.
Cons: Carpet needs deep cleaning.
Location: Just off of Main Street in Cambria. Minutes from Moonstone Beach, San Simeon about 10 minutes away.
Located on Burton just off of Main Street, the Rigdon House is a great place to stay. Some of the rooms are upstairs, so if you have bad knees request a first floor room. Our room was a king suite with a large sitting area with a sleeper sofa. It’s really like a studio apartment.Lovely fire pit and seating area behind the property. They have a wine/cocktail hour from 5-6pm. Break is a bit late, starting at 9:00 am. But there’s a nice bakery around the corner if you’re an early riser like us.

Thank you so much for the review! We love to hear from all of our guests and appreciate all feedback. We are currently in the process of changing out all the downstairs rooms with hardwood floors and all the upstairs rooms with new carpet. Our staff is very excited for the updates and we hope you visit us again once it is all completed!

Nice place, near restaurants and downtown.

Pros: Pet friendly, close to downtown. Quiet.
Cons: A small sink in the 'kitchenette' would be much appreciated.
Location: Small shops, great restaurants. Cambria is a beautiful little town.
First of all, I was grateful they allow pets. Check in was easy and quick and overall, we were very happy with our stay. Our room had absolutely no odors to indicate previous pet 'accidents'', though there were faded spots on the carpet so I'm sure there were. The room was spacious enough with a nice front room that had a faux fireplace, a small sofa, a chaise lounge and tv. Double doors led into the bedroom, which also had a faux fireplace and tv. Nice comfortable bed, everything nice and clean. I am a bit surprised the room was called a "luxury suite with a kitchenette". The 'kitchenette' consisted of a small under counter refrigerator, a 4 cup coffee pot and a microwave. I was a bit disappointed there no sink or silverware. I washed my dog's bowls in the bathroom sink with bar soap and a wash cloth, and had to go next door to the office to get a fork and a spoon.
