My husband and I were celebrating our 10th anniversary and wanted to go somewhere new. We both wanted to see the Hearst castle, so I researched Cambria. The Pelican Inn & Suites had good reviews and looked nice, so we booked a three night stay. When we arrived we were very happy. The staff was very nice and accommodating. The grounds are very nicely landscaped with flowers and succulents. The hotel isn't too big, which was nice. We had a second floor room with a full view of the ocean. The room was clean and nicely decorated; very comfortable. There was even a full bottle of champagne with glasses for our anniversary!
We slept with our window open and had no problem with traffic noise, it was drowned out by the sound of the ocean waves. It was a very peaceful place. The breakfast was very good. Every morning they had two choices of eggs, regular scrambled or with other ingredients which they switched up every day by adding spinach, cheese, mushrooms and tortillas. They also had different types of meat, such as sausage or ham . You can make your own waffles or use the toaster to make toast or bagels. There was also fresh fruit and oatmeal. One additional thing I wish they would have had would be pastries like Danish or muffins. The evening wine reception was also very good.
We had a wonderful time and will certainly be back. We would like to see the Hearst castle again, but when the drought is over. Unfortunately the outdoor pool and all of the fountains were dry due to the drought.
