Nice hotel with an ocean view

Posted 14-Sep-2017
Very nice hotel, close to Hearst Castle, right across a small two-lane road from a really cool beach. It's also just a one-minute walk from a very nice restaurant.

A jewel with a beautiful view

Posted 05-Jul-2017
Pros: -The cost fit our budget -The view -Moonbeach and boardwalk being across the street -Kindness of office staff -Landscaping -Towels for the pool
Location: Hearst Castle (9 miles away) Justin Vineyard and Wineries(34-44 miles away) Eberley Winery (35-46 miles away)
We stayed two nights at Castle Inn. We wanted to stay at a place that put us within traveling distance to Hearst Castle in San Simeon and the wineries in Paso Robles. Castle Inn, in Cambria, fit the bill. If you NEED top amenities, room service, concierge service, spa service, etc. This hotel is NOT for you. However, if you want a nice, efficient, clean room with a beautiful view.... then look no further. Book now! This is a small, quiet hotel with two floors. The hotel is landscaped with beautiful lush flora and Adirondack chairs that line the lawn. Moonwalk beach and boardwalk is simply a walk across the street. The boardwalk offers a 2.85 round trip of vistas and opportunities to walk down to the beach. Pros: -Clean rooms and wonderfully soft mattress with quality pillows and bedding - In room refrigerator (in closet) and coffee pot & poolside breakfast room -Heated pool, beach towels for the pool and for drying dew off Adirondack chairs -Free wi-fi (that works) -Beautiful view and directly across from Moonstone beach and board walk -Adirondack chairs for beach viewing Cons: -No air conditioner. Although one is rarely needed due to the cool climate, we found opening windows gave a nice cross breeze. But, beware it becomes really cool very quickly in this part of California. -Bathroom is very small. It worked fine for my husband and myself. However, a larger family may find themselves having difficulty sharing.

Great location on Moonstone Beach. Room had good view of ocean. Boardwalk just across the road that goes up and down Moonstone Beach. There are a number of hotels along the row. Also, two restaurants Moonstone Beach Bar and Grill and Sea Chest located in walking distance. Cambria and Hearst Castle are a quick drive away. Good service, both check in and check out were easy. Room was very clean and comfortable. Heater in room appeared to only have on and off alternatives. Basic continental breakfast, oatmeal, bagels, etc.

Tiny room.

Posted 04-Jul-2017
Room 21 has no ocean view. I had a better view from my car in the parking lot. Shower was built for a small child. It was a Great location... close to beach walking, aND a couple of nice restuarants. Downtown is 3 miles away.... location, location, location. I would try one of the other places next visit.

The young man at the counter, Ty, (I believe thats how its spelled) was great. Called before noon hoping we could get an early check-in. He told me he'd call when our room was ready. 10 mins later he called and we were able to get an early start on our weekend getaway. On top of that .... when we got home my wife had forgot her make-up mirror in our romm. She call the next day and Ty had found it and offered to send it out to us within a day. What a wonderful young man. Made out trip so much more rememberable.
