Ignore what you see on their website. Hotel was old, and felt old, bordering on the decrepit. We stayed for one night since it was cheap and had decent (overblown) ratings. Felt unsafe: had to jam a book in the sliding window track in the bathroom to keep it from opening since there was no lock. Our traveling companions (another couple) stayed in the adjacent room which was similar to ours but different mismatched furnishings. No one was at the desk until 8 in the morning, so we couldnt get a receipt when leaving. On the positive side, the room was reasonably clean.

Room Tip: Avoid the place unless you can't afford better

We stayed in Cambria for one night as part of a roadtrip down the coast. We got there a bit late, but that was no issue at all as everything had been sorted for us to make things as easy as possible. The room was very clean, with a sweet little balcony, and the place was very well looked after. The sound of frogs from the creek was particularly pleasing!

There is only breakfast at the weekends, but the staff recommended a very nice place to have breakfast down the road, so that did not matter.

We stayed in Cambria for a weekend getaway. Tired the Creekside Inn for the first time. The rooms were clean, it was serene and quite. Walking distance to town. My only complaint were the beds were rock hard. Wish the beds were more comfortable.

We have been to Cambria before and enjoy staying within walking distance of shops and restaurants. The Inns and motels on Moonstone Beach have the ocean right across the street and are priced accordingly, however only a very few room actually have views of the ocean and to get to town you have to drive.

The Creekside Inn is a small older establishment located at the East end of town close to a number of shops and restaurants. While a bit older and basic in amenities, it has been well maintained. We spent three nights there after having made our reservations online through their website. Our king room was clean and comfortable with a cute little balcony overlooking the creek that runs behind the property. You can tell that the owners are constantly reinvesting in the property. They have free WiFi an have upgraded to flat screen televisions. There are flowers and plant life everywhere which adds to the charm.

We were greeted by a very friendly couple and told that on the weekends they offer free fresh local pastries, fruit, coffee and juice in the mornings. The selection of pastries was very pleasing.

While this trip, we did not bring our dog, It should be noted that this is a pet friendly hotel.
Next time we visit Cambria we will probably stay here again.

Room Tip: Our upstairs room had a nice balcony overlooking the creek located behind the hotel.

We passed through Cambria on a trip from San Diego to San Francisco. We arrived at dead on 9pm which was good as the office closes at 9pm. The Motel was clean and quiet. We took a walk into town which was nice. Overall stay was good. A coffee machine would have been a nice touch for in the morning, but we enjoyed breakfast in a small bakery a few minutes walk away. Great experience and a must for visitors to the Big Sur.

We were looking for a place to stay for the night and we found the Creekside Inn. The front desk staff was extremely nice and personable. We had an upstairs room, with a great view of the creek, although it was dry. The room was spacious and very comfortable. The bed was soft. We had a restful sleep. The bathroom was spacious as well. Some people said that the walls were thin. I didn't think that they were. At night, we heard noise, as if there was some sort of animal...we were pleased to find that it was a baby deer, just roaming along side of the creek. Because it was the weekend, in the morning, we were greeting by coffee, fresh fruit and some awesome pastries. We would stay here again, definitely.

Room Tip: Get a room on the second floor, way toward the back.

We just spent a night in our trip from Big Sur, but we loved it. We arrived late at night. The attendant was really polite and friendly. Simple motel but beautiful place. Definitely we will come back next time.
