This hotel was cheaper than some of the others I looked at in Cambria.
The check in was excellent and Dawn was extremely helpful advising us on where to go for food etc.
The hotel itself was like a motel with the rooms off the parking lot. We stayed in an upstairs room with an ocean view. I would say that it is probably not worth the extra for that kind of room as we were not really in the room apart from sleeping.
The room itself felt older than some of the other hotels i stayed in on this trip. there was a slight musty smell in the room and the bathroom was a little dated. Nevertheless it was clean and well maintained. The fire place in the room was a nice touch and we kept it on through the night.
I would probably book this hotel if i was to go to Cambria again as it helped to keep down the overall cost of our trip. It was a nice touch that a continental breakfast was included before we left for Hearst Castle.
- 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
