A Nice Home Base for Exploring the Central Coast

Posted Apr 24, 2017
Pros: Solid rooms, facilities and amenities. A bit more pricey than the B&B stuff near Moonstone Beach.
Cons: Parking can be difficult, but geography and layout of facility likely prevent an easy fix. The breakfast leaves a bit to be desired.
Beautiful grounds and well kept rooms. Live entertainment nightly at the main lodge is fun. Decent pool and hot tub. Location provides an easy jump off for exploring the central coast including Hearst Castle, local restaurants (Centrally Grown etc.), sightseeing including beaches, elephants seals (San Simeon and north), whales (late spring and summer), kiteboarders (at Arroyo Laguna), hiking (San Simeon Point, Fiscalini Ranch Preserve etc), tidepooling (low tide, everywhere)....Overall a very pleasant experience.

Older but very nice lodge.

Posted Apr 20, 2017
Pros: Large rooms
Cons: room could be updated
Location: central to shopping a walking district but not close to beach
Sprawling property with a lot to explore on the grounds. We rented the 1 bedroom suite which was quite large and comfortable if a bit dated. Has a mountain lodge feel overall and is centrally located The free full breakfast was very good (and popular). The walls and flooring above seemed thinner than normal as you could even hear someone snoring in the next room.

Nice Rooms, Beautiful Surroundings

Posted Apr 19, 2017
Pros: a lot. rooms (design of and decor), beds, bathroom, pool, hot tub, young staff
Location: Hearst Castle less than 15 mins away Cambria Pines Lodge located in just that, pine trees, with some beautiful flower gardens as well.
Really pleasant stay, very large room with two double beds, plenty of storage space, bathroom with good heater, nice tub and shower. Also a ground floor patio with ivy. Enjoyed the several well kept gardens, the steep but fun walk down to Cambria village, the pool and hot tub, the enormous range at breakfast, the ease of check in and out, and the proximity to San Simeon. Enjoyed the free music in lounge option. Would definitely return.

We loved the sweet, everything is maintained so well. We were with a group of 12 others, utilized the restaurant for a group dinner, went very well as we were given the back room to ourselves.

Gem amongst the pines!

Resort style hotel in lovely setting. We just stayed one night whilst visiting Hearst Castle, but would have happily stayed longer to explore the local region.

Well maintained resort style hotel close to Town

Posted Apr 5, 2017
Cons: Air Conditioning is not available in the rooms. Virtually if you need air you need to leave the windows open.
Beautiful location and close to all amenities and beaches. Very clean rooms and decent breakfast in the mornings.
