We had reservations at another property on Moonstone Beach Dr. but when we arrived, we were extremely disappointed with the attitude of the front desk gal, which was an automatic turn off to the entire property. With disgust, we left and started our drive north on Moonstone Beach when we came upon the Cambria Shores Inn. At first, I was taken aback by its 1950's exterior appearance, but once we met Scott and looked at one of the only available rooms, we were ready to sign on the dotted line! It is truly a remarkable place to stay. Even though the property is "dog friendly," we were never disturbed by the barking of a dog nor were we offended by any lingering odor of a dog in the room. The room had everything a traveler could want or need. I was impressed, not only with there being a coffee pot, refrigerator and microwave, but also with "real" glasses and coffee cups, an ice tub with tongs, cork remover, and "real" wine glasses. There was a fireplace in the room along with a very efficient heater. The bed was extremely comfortable and the linens fresh and quite warm. All guests were treated to cookies in the afternoon with ready availability of fresh coffee, tea and hot water. In the morning, about 8:15, a lovely basket of breakfast foods was delivered to our room. It hung on a hanger right outside the door. In it we found croissant, ham and cheese, fresh fruit, orange juice and muffins. The only real drawback that I found was the enormous shower head centered overhead, in the middle of the tub. I felt like I was in a rainstorm when I took my shower. The tub was incredible though. It had hand grips for safety. Another minor drawback, if there could have been a door placed at the entrance to the sink area, it would have separated the sink/closet/dressing area from the main room. The reason, with the beautiful view of the ocean, we enjoyed having the blinds pulled up but could not have privacy when dressing. Other than that, I found it to be a very quaint and quiet retreat, with truly great views of the Pacific, unlike many of the other Moonstone properties along the ocean frontage road. We plan to return to this family owned and operated Inn in the near future!
