this place overlooks a beautiful beach and there are plenty of places in the beautiful gardens to sit and watch the sunset. Very friendly people. Generous gifts of delicious cookies, nibbles and brownies late afternoon. Rooms are great, very clean. Breakfast is delivered each morning and includes good quality fresh fruit. Bar on site, and just a walk along the...

The Inn provides a comfortable cabin style experience complete with stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and one of the best sunsets on the coast. We chose this place because it was doggy friendly, but we also enjoyed the complementary breakfast and the access to Hearst Castle.

Pleasantly surprised about the continental breakfast delivered in a basket hanging outside your cabin door. The location was perfect for beach walking and great sea food restaurant next door, but it's a cash only restaurant, so heads up...bit pricey so make sure you know I advance they don't take credit cards at restaurant. 5:00 serve cheese and veggie, sparkling cider......

Cambria Shores Inn is my friend Deb's go to place when she wants a trip to the ocean. I loved the hotel. The succulent gardens were fabulous, they love the environment where salty breezes and misty fog give them rich life. I also loved that although my own beloved dog did not make the trip with me, I had the...

I almost cancelled our reservation because of the pet-friendly policy. Not to worry! The room was immaculate, had no odor, and was very light and modern. And I only heard one "woof" during our too-short stay. We could have spent a pleasant morning walking along the beach except I had booked 9:30 tickets for Hearst Castle. Give yourself enough time...

The staff at the hotel were extremely courteous and friendly. Tons of little touches that make this hotel better than many others we have been to. The lawn chairs at sunset were incredibly relaxing and we had a view of the waves cresting on the beach from our bed! Amazing experience!

In June, we enjoyed a return visit to this motel that faces the Pacific ocean. It was our 25th wedding anniversary, and this is where we got engaged many years ago. The motel has really changed...for the better! Our room had an upgraded bathroom with stone floor and new fixtures, the flat screen TV was above the working fireplace, and...

We had a great stay at the Cambria Shores Inn. The standard motel-style room was renovated nicely. The inn is right on the ocean and has beautiful views. The inn was very accommodating to our 140 lb Newfoundland dog, who received a welcome basket. The inn delivers breakfast to you in the morning in a picnic basket. Can't wait to...

Very good place to stay. Service is very personal. Unique way to serve the breakfast, we loved it. Best part is that we had wine and dinner is the lawn during Sunset with breath taking views. Newly renovated. We definitely recomend this hotel.
