Love the motel..only slight negative...after a long drive needed to pee and the nice lady that checked me in was a bit slow in allowing me to use the restroom. Might have been my perception. The rooms are comfy and bed has lots of blankets and a wonderful comforter on top. Gas fireplace with a timer..great for sleeping. The air/heat...

We stayed at Cambria Shores Inn for three days this week and would recommend it to anyone looking for a really comfortable place to stay in the Moonstone Beach area. We were in Room 13 which has a wide ocean view (see photos.) The king bed was extremely comfortable. The room had a fireplace, flat screen TV, quiet fridge and...

Make sure you ask for Ocean front room. After a long drive from Monterey this was a breath of fresh air. Nice place overall. Cute little town not far away. Service was good. I was scared after reading the previous comments but that was not my experience at all.

My boyfriend and I always stay here when in cambria. We usually are able to book the king room with the patio, which has a partial view of the ocean out the back. The fireplace keeps the room especially warm in the winter months ( we like to go during off peak periods). Easy access to the beach and the...

Cambria Shores Inn has by far been the best place we have stayed at on our road trip!! Recently remodeled, the attention to detail is fantastic! The staff truly made us feel like we were their guests! Breakfast is delivered to the door in a picnic basket and it has muffins, bagels, fruit, orange juice with silverware and cloth napkins....

I was very much impressed with this hotel as soon as I walked into the door. We stayed in room 13. Seems that the last room, room 25 is the best and has a great view of the ocean and a patio. Apparently, the south rooms also have little patios in the back. The details of the rooms are very...

This fine ocean side inn doesn't just allow dogs, they cater to them with treats, blankets, and towels. It is also a wonderful, beautiful, relaxing spot for everyone else. Conveniently located in Cambria. Across the road from the boardwalk, the road is not too busy during the day and almost deserted in the evening.

We celebrated our 1 year anniversary with our 2 pups here. It was the perfect stay. It's very pet friendly. When you check in, they give you a basket with bowls, mats, towel, doggy biscuits, list of doggy restaurants friendly, etc. The room was clean, decent view and just right for us and our 2 small pups. it had a...

Was driving by looking for a picnic spot and were on the beach in front of this inn and asked if they had a ocean view room available, pet friendly, and they had one left and we took it. Very nicely appointed as other posters have noted.
