Use your powers of a consumer wisely. Consider other hotels on the same street before you settle on Cambria Beach Lodge. Cambria Beach Lodge was formerly named the Mariner’s Inn. While the physical renovation of the hotel was successful, hotel management really needs to work on their business practices of serving their customers well and not serving them up for...

Just adorable. What a treat. In a town with very few nicer, updated options to stay, especially with children, the Cambria Beach Lodge was a great find. Sadly, we only stayed one night at Cambria Beach Lodge on our drive down Hwy 1. We booked the adorable and spacious beach house suite. I wish we had longer to enjoy, but...

We just returned from a trip from the San Francisco Bay Area to Southern California, stopping at our favorite places along the Central Coast to admire the blooming native wildflowers. We were leaning toward staying at a more established and higher rated hotel but, yearning for something off the beaten path, we chose Cambria Beach Lodge, hoping it would turn...

We stayed in two different rooms at the Cambria Beach Lodge (as a family traveling together). It is an old style motor-lodge that had been updated to have a serious hipster-flair. I love that! The rooms are simple but clean and incredibly cute. My hipster husband was ooo-ing and ahhh-ing over the adorableness. Light wood floors, bright colors, and sea...

Our visit was fortunate from the moment we arrived. The lovely staff Val and Janette ensured our visit would be perfect. We were thrilled to see our gorgeous room. Decorated with simplicity and obvious style. We loved the clean fresh feel, colors and textiles . It's obvious that everything has been considered when carrying out this refurbishment. We enjoyed our...

The rooms are minimalist beach styling, comfortable beds and cozy. The town of Cambria is close and quaint. Great eating spot 2 doors up from the Lodge. The Lodge offers coffee and yummy breakfast breads,fruit and yogurt in the morning.

We stayed in the upstairs suite and enjoyed the full-sized, stainless and granite kitchen, living room with fireplace, and separate bedroom. The mattress was quite soft for someone with any back issues, which is my only complaint. The down linens were top quality and plenty of pillows were provided. The balcony overlooks the ocean where we enjoyed good coffee and...

I stayed here recently with my mother- and it made for the perfect girls trip. With the ocean, the breakfast, and the bikes available- it's everything you need for a nice weekend of relaxation.

This place is a hidden gem, so much so that I almost want to keep it a secret! But here we go: It is RIGHT on the beach, the views, the sunset, the beautifully kept pathways along the ocean are immaculate. Needless to say, the location is absolutely to die for. When we walked in we were greeted with cheer...

My boyfriend Augustus and I purchased our stay on Groupon for our weekend away. Groupon deals are usually just that a deal.

The Beach has a walking path that...
