This not the best but not a bad place to stay in Cambria but is the least expensive. The room was clean but not fancy. There was a small refrigerator in the closet. Because of the mild temperatures in the area, there is no air conditioner but there is a ceiling fan. This was not an issue as it was somewhat chilly in June and I suspect that it never really gets hot there. It is right across the street from the ocean and you can sit on the front lawn in large chairs and watch the sunset. The pool is small but adequate. The spa is very small and the water was not hot enough. Every morning they give you a free continental breakfast which is good. It is enough to hold you until lunch. None of the rooms actually face the ocean so don't be fooled by the term ocean view. It is more ocean side view. Ask for a room on the second floor. It is a newly renovated property and is more of a motel than a hotel. People walk outside your room so expect some noise if kids are around. For this reason, you need to keep the blinds closed most of the day and cannot leave your windows open at night. Wi-fi is free which is nice. I would stay here again as it is good value for the money-$550 for 3 days. Other hotels in the area can cost you $100-$150 more a night. There is no onsite restaurant.
- 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
