We stayed here because we had a Living Social deal and for the location. I have stayed in a lot of hotels and prefer not to stay inside the room because I love exploring. I'm giving it 4 stars because the staff were very friendly, professional, and accommodating and also for the price. The breakfast was appropriate and a lot better than other hotels. They had Peerless regular and decaf coffee (very important)hot cocoa for the kids, milk, orange jc and hot and cold water. They had olallieberry pastries with other selections,2 choices of Kashi oatmeal (maple and apple cinnamon), yogurt, fruits and hard boiled egg. I eat light breakfast and for me it's a lot but for my kids and hubbie, just enough. Some hotels will just give you cheap sugary muffins and coffee for complimentary breakfast!
It is also a stone throw away from Moonstone Beach Bar and Grill which is a very good place for family and a great view of the beach and sunset! The room had a fridge, tv, bath soap and the usual stuff. It'a also about 6 miles away from Hearst Castle.
The manager offered us some board games like pictionary quick draw which we borrowed and had a nice family game on our second night.
It has a small swimming pool outside and deck chair out overlooking the beach where you can hang out. It is right across the boardwalk to go further into the beach where one can view the rocks and harbor seals especially in the morning where one can practice yoga amidst nature.
The only negative I can say is the shower door dripping water on the floor wetting the bath mat and we had to put more towels on the floor. The bed was not comfortable.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- It was one of the very first motels built along the Cambria coast when cattle still roamed on Moonstone Beach Drive. The property boasts one of the best geographical locations on the beach. Right in front of the lodge are amazing tide pools to discover sealife, gorgeous lookouts, Leffingwell Landing Park and a wide-open beach upon which to stroll. The grounds at the Inn are broad and situated with comfortable sitting areas for enjoyable ocean viewing and people-watching. All of the guestrooms offer views of the ocean, but the upstairs rooms provide an excellent vantage point to watch the daily sunsets. The rooms at Castle Inn are simple but more than adequate to provide a wonderful stay at the beach. It is our intention to make the property one of the best values along Moonstone Beach and a great option for families. ... more less
