A breath of fresh air!

We recently spent a couple days at Cambria Pines and love it! We had stayed once before they added the small cottages, but really loved having our own personal space with a view. Breakfast was wonderful. We explored the village and gardens for our after breakfast walk and dinner, and finished the nights with music in the lounge. We had a great stay and will be back.

Charming Hotel

Posted Feb 17, 2015
Pros: I love their garden area in the back of the lobby
What can I say about his most charming hotel? I randomly chose this hotel and I'm so happy I did. It is a great place to relax and unwind. I definately will be going back!

Cons: The beds were not very comfortable.
Nice place to stay. Feels like you are up in the mountains with all the large Redwoods and wilderness. Restaurant has great food. We had dinner there and I had the Prime Rib. Very nice cut. Breakfast was included with our stay and it was very good also with many choices to pick from. Would definitely come back.

Excellent Customer Service

Posted Feb 9, 2015
Pros: Setting gorgeous, staff MORE than helpful and very polite.
Cons: Sound proofing? Heaters and plumbing loud in The Moonstone building.
Location: Drive up or down Hwy 1, Hearst Castle and the view! Can't beat February at the Central Coast.
I love the setting of the hotel...tucked away. Setting is lovely and calm. Only problem was that the walls of the bungalow (Moonstone) seem thin. I was unable to sleep past 6 am each day because the neighbors got up and turned on water, heater, etc., causing loud banging in the walls. Even with earplugs, the heaters or plumbing woke me up, as well as lights flickering from wiring?. At night, the neighbors' television kept me awake. I didn't complain because there really was nothing the neighbors could do. Having said that, I will try them again soon because the staff was extremely helpful and the setting was ideal. Hopefully, a different room in the main Inn or one of the single bungalows will work out better for me. No ocean view, of course, but gorgeous setting, 5 minutes from the beach . Oh....POOL is spectacular! Gorgeous and huge.

In the pines...not at the beach, or in town.

Nice location, but a bit of a walk down the stairs into town. Comfortable, but ready for an update. Beautiful grounds, friendly staff. We would return, but for a newer cottage accommodation, rather than the older motel-style room.

Excellent hotel set on huge, beautiful grounds.

Posted Feb 3, 2015
Pros: The lounge, the restaurant, the gardens, the gift shop/nursery.
Cons: The coffee could be improved.
Location: It's in Cambria, CA, a very beautiful place. One can go to moonstone beach, several wine tasting places, the little town of San Simeon, Hearst Castle
The hotel is in a beautiful setting. There are a number of gardens to walk through -- they will be especially beautiful in the spring. The restaurant is very good. Dinner was tasty. The hot breakfasts are nice. The coffee isn't great. There is a comfortable lounge where one can buy a drink and listen to music. Our big window overlooked a woodsy, pine ravine. We loved being there. We loved it many years ago, and it is even better now.

Disappointing after years of bliss.

Posted Feb 2, 2015
Stayed here at least a dozen time and have always been our favorite place to stay TILL NOW. Was the first time we got the room that was across from the main lodge and was nothing but a waste of money. The room was fine (just the blinds were broken but nothing to complain about) it was the night life that ruined it for us this trip. They have live music in the bar on weekends which never bothered us till this trip. The room was a bit warm but didn't have a ceiling fan or AC. So opening the window would have been great but beacuse of the "live band" we were not only uncomfortable but got no sleep due to not beiing able to drowned out the blaring music and loud drunks just across the way. Couldn't belive after years of staying here to have a horrible night with no sleep and a waste of money trying to get away for the weekend just will find another place next time.

Cambria Pines is in a lovely setting with good hotel staff to support and enhance your visit. I had a traditional room for one night and there were a few things that needed attention in that particular room.. I have previously stayed in a suite - and it was lovely.. There was no internet access and my phone had intermittent reception - but that may be true of the area and not just the Pines. So this is a vacation, relaxation spot - not a business destination. I would happily return - and will reserve a suite.
