Where to stay in Cambria, CA

We are traveling to Cambria in late July and looking for a great place to stay. Since 2 people with us are young, we prefer something not too "dated". From pictures, many of the places along Moonstone Beach look similar. Any suggestions are appreciated.

Hi Wendy

Moonstone Landing or Little Sur Inn are two of the more "modernized" lodgings in Cambria. El Colibri would be another, but there are no view rooms there. The Best Western Fireside Inn is another option. Cambria Lodge, while not on or near the ocean, went through a remodel a few years ago. It's a nice property on several wooded acres above the East Village. They have several suite rooms that would work nicely for a family.

The Blue Dolphin has a very modern vibe.

I don't know exactly what you mean by "young." Kids? Or young adults? The Blue Dolphin doesn't welcome guests under 18.

The Pelican Inn has also been renovated recently. But I found the rooms larger at the Blue Dolphin.

Cambria Pines Lodge has a great pool and live music in the evening but maybe your kids won't fancy that. We (seniors) loved it.

Thanks for your reply. Kids are 30 but definitely have different taste than we do.

El Colibri is very contemporary but no views as stated earlier. Moonstone Landing might be a place you would enjoy, it is right on Moonstone Beach Drive. If you want a resort, check out the Cavalier Resort in nearby San Simeon. Happy Travels! :).
