My husband and I visited the San Simeon/Cambria area to see the Hearst Castle on a little weekend getaway. The location of this inn is perfect for visiting the castle! It was about a 10-15 minute drive. The inn is right across the street from the beach and the view from the lobby/breakfast room is gorgeous. The very sweet receptionist...

I pulled over on my road trip down the California coast and found this gem of a place. The view is amazing and the service was great. I asked for a room with a view and I was not disappointed. The room has a fireplace and everything was remodeled approximately three months ago. There was an issue with my fireplace...

Stayed a few days ago and can't tell you what a fun little place this is, right on the beach. The Lodge just went through a HUGE upgrade and looks great. Walking distance from restaurants and 15 minutes from Hearst Castle. Overall just a great experience, amazing staff and can't wait to go back.

Unique, clean, creative and "romantic" room. (except we had two kids and a dog). :) They loved it. The pros. Great rooms. Plenty of room supplies. Did not feel like a hotel.

We originally planned a one night stay on our way to Big Sur. From the minute we arrived we fell in love. It's right opposite the beach. Rooms are cosy, quiet and clean. After a great nights sleep we booked the next night. Only possible improvement is the breakfast. Coffee, juice, cake, fruit and hard boiled eggs are what's on...

Something so charming and different for Cambria. Decor and all the little details make all the difference. Super thoughtful touches, from the minibar to the compendium, all give off the laid back, ready to explore vibe. Not to mention the hotel is literally on the beach. Have the bottle of rose provided in your room,..... which you can drink on...

Great place to get away. Quaint little town a short distance with some select restaurants and gift shops. Cambria Beach Lodge is perfect if you want to just chill and be beach side. The rooms are simple with a modern feel and a cozy atmosphere great choice you won't be sorry.

I brought my mom for her birthday on a last minute trio. I found the hotel on hotel tonight for 99 on a Sunday. Room was updated with a nice comfortable bed and glass shower. Only complaint was the size of the TV in the room, but you can watch TV at home. Excellent front desk service.

The first stylish boutique hotel in Cambria.. Beachy vibe w/great design and well stocked mini bar. I loved riding the complimentary Linus bikes into town and walking next door to Sea Chest for dinner. The views and location are exceptional, especially for the price. The lobby has a fireplace and is social spot for guests in the morning and evening....
