We stayed for two nights at the Blue Dolphin Inn to celebrate my 50th birthday. You could not ask for a more perfect location, practically on the water in Cambria. Our room- The Sea of Japan- was smack dab in the center of the best view in Cambria. The sunsets were phenomenal! The breakfast was delicious, delivered to our door every morning. Cookies left every evening. The bed was so comfortable- one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. We will be back!"

Just returned from a fabulous three night stay at the Blue Dolphin Inn. We had one of the rooms at the front of the hotel with a full ocean view and front patio. The recently remodeled room rivals that of many five star hotels including the Ritz Carlton and Montage in Laguna. Rates may be considered expensive compared to other area hotels but you get what you pay for and it is considerably less expensive than ocean front rooms at the previously mentioned resorts.

Friendly and conscientious staff, very satisfying "free" breakfast delivered to your door, gas fireplace to take the chill out of the air.

I cannot recommend this hotel highly enough--we will be back!

We generally stay at two hotels in Cambria Moonstone Landing or Little Sur Inn. We booked as usual but due to a mistake there was no reservation and we were referred to the Blue Dolphin Inn. It was a newer hotel with everything nicely updated. Loved the LCD TV and pod coffee maker two of my favorite attributes. Signed the travel log in my room and it was interesting to read about the past guest. Definitely upscale and adult oriented as I believe there is no children allowed. Would stay there again if I got a good deal, it is pricey.

Blue dolphin inn is a adorable surprise in Cambria. Along Moonstone beach, just across the street from the boardwalk, you couldn't ask for a better location. The rooms were so clean, with comfortable beds and bath. Really nice. Cookies awaited us at the bar counter in the room, along with a handy kreuger for morning coffee. I loved this place. Definitely would stay here again, and really wish we'd had a chance for an extra day!

In the morning got up and ran up and down boardwalk which is as stated, just across the little road and the views were gorgeous. Got to see seals and dolphins, from the boardwalk! Breakfast was delivered in a picnic style way and was very good. Like I said, wish I could have stayed an extra night :)

We discovered The Blue Dolphin thru Trip advisor and it lived up to its positive reviews. Almost a combination of a charming inn and a mini luxury hotel it is located with many similar properties on a spit of land overlooking spectacular shoreline. it was the perfect spot to stop on our drive from LA to SF. The staff were so hospitable they made you feel like you were staying at thier home and maybe we were! On the phone they recommended room 210 which had ocean views at non view rates and it was perfect. We celebrated an anniversary dinner at Madelines in town and again it was delightful as Trip Advisor members had said. Walking along the "boardwalk" inthe morning was another big plus. Great location, very cozy and very reasonable. and that breakfast was wonderful too.
