What a pleasant surprise this place is. We were staying next door at Moonstone Landing and decided to stay an extra day. The Little Sur Inn had space available and the accommodations were equally pleasant. They have a nice patio tucked away and the view is just beautiful. We highly recommend both places!

This cute hotel sits amongst an unpretentious little row of similar hotels right across from the beach. We have stayed at a few other hotels here but prefer the Little Sur Inn. The views from the nicely renovated second level are wonderful and we appreciate the non-carpeted floors for cleanliness. We usually stay just one or two nights on our...

We love Cambria, and had stayed last time at Little Sur's lovely sister Inn, two doors down the Coast... We'd heard that this place was even better, and better it was! The room was big, comfy, had a lovely view of the surf & even a fireplace to take the chill off the night air...a lovely Continental breakfast, enjoyed in...

We have visited Cambria on a number of occasion and stayed along Moonstone Beach every time. The stay at Little Sur Inn was amazing! The front desk staff are so warm and welcoming, very smooth. Our room wasn't quite ready so we drove up and looked at the sea elephants. Came back to the Inn and went to our room....

Little Sur Inn staff were excellent, allowing early check-in and wine glasses for our room as well as restaurant recommendation. Room was large, well appointed, clean and a very large bathroom with jetted tub and separate shower. Enjoyed sitting on our balcony and sipping wine into the sunset. The fireplace was especially nice when it became too chilly to sit...

I was originally hesitant to book a stay at this hotel because it only had a two star rating but booked it as they were the only hotel on Moonstone that had 2 queen beds available. It turned out to be the BEST CHOICE EVER. The room was quit large, very clean, and was decorated. There was no view but...

It doesn't get much better than this for us. The Little Sue Inn provided us with a large, very clean, well appointed room with a balcony directly on the beautiful Pacific coastline for an affordable price. We had easy access to the boardwalk and the beach. We enjoyed a beautiful vista from pre dawn to fantastic sunsets and topped it...

We stayed here for 1 night on our road trip to San Fran from LA. A cute place right on the water which we would have enjoyed spending more time at but we literally just slept there.

We found this motel type low-rise place very pleasant, with spacious, well equipped rooms of a high standard. Easy to find (on the seafront) and ample parking, Good breakfast. Seafood restaurant next door is expensive, but deservedly popular. Service OK, but the lady at the desk leaves at 9pm.

The rooms are large and extremely clean. They are nicely appointed with comfortable furnishings. I had a partial ocean view and a wonderful fireplace that acts as the heater and is set by the thermostat. There is no air conditioning, but the breeze is wonderful. Th complimentary breakfast had nice variety.
