Just spent the weekend with family at this place. Location is perfect - walk across to the beach, clean rooms and bathroom. Added bonus was watching all the sea creatures at low tide! Sitting on the lawns, watching the ocean and eating snacks provided by the hotel was fun for my kids!

My wife and I stayed here for our anniversary last year and absolutely loved it. It's in a great location, just walk across the street and you are at the beach. There is also a nice boardwalk to walk along the coast for a bit. We enjoyed the breakfast left in the basket, and they were kind enough to leave...

When the weather gets really hot in central California, you can expect it to be 30 - 40 degrees cooler in Cambria. We spent a relaxing - away from the heat break - at the Cambria Shores Lodge. It reminds me of a hunting lodge or a very large B&B with wonderful ambiance. Be careful driving in, we almost hit...

The Cambria Shores is a beautiful and friendly pet friendly motel, but acts more like a B & B. This place is right across the street from the ocean and a nice beach walkway. The owners have really outdone themselves with their amenities and snacks. They serve cookies upon arriving at 3 pm, they serve vegetables, cheese and crackers at...

I can honestly say that this inn is by far the most hospitable I've ever stayed in! The hotel is older, but there has been a recent remodel that puts this place over the top! Beautiful rooms with a fireplace. Bathrooms have amazing rock floors and tile throughout. Now, on to the views! From the back patio, there's an awesome...

I chose this hotel for two reasons: Location and Pet Friendly. It was terrific on both of those points. Moonstone Beach is awesome and I just love walking along the wooden trail along the top of the cliffs, oceanside with my pups. Okay, back to the hotel. We had room 23 which is a King Patio room. It was on...

This is a wonderful location and the service is outstanding. Loved getting breakfast in a basket and being able to sit outdoors enjoying the magnificent ocean views. I also enjoyed the evening appetizers along with some delicious wine. A great value for an inexpensive price. Very close to town.

We spent two nights here and had a great visit! You can't beat the location (directly across from Moonstone Beach). Breakfast delivered to your room was a nice touch - wasn't anything exciting but that was ok by me. Rooms appeared newly renovated with a large bathroom and lots of counter space as well as a mini fridge, microwave, and...

Whatever you look for in a hotel, they probably have it. Easy walk to the beach, dog friendly, great service, DVDs to borrow, clean rooms, friendly staff... they put a picnic basket with breakfast in it on a hook outside your door, and they bake fresh brownies every night. Hard to find anything here that isn't perfect.

My husband and I and our dog, Lucy, love the Cambria Shores Inn. The location is right across from the Moonstone Beach Boardwalk, the service was excellent, as were the rooms. Everyone we dealt with in the office was friendly, helpful and efficient. We loved having the afternoon snacks and cookies in the evening and the doggie basket that we...
