I was looking for a place to stay within 2 hours of the "super bloom" and came across this place which was a great deal for a coastal location. Clean rooms, friendly and helpful service, and you can't beat that the beach is right across the street and I could hear the ocean from my non-ocean facing room. Would absolutely...

This is a funky lodge which is in a magnificent location. The rooms have been updated and there is Dish TV with several HBO and Cinemax stations We had two rooms one was very large with a fire place and two Queen beds the other with a King bed was a bit smaller. The hotel is in a prime location,...

Great location, staff extremely friendly, room perfect with binoculars to zero in on those whales! The fireplace was an added touch to a perfect room. Cannot wait to visit again perhaps staying for a longer period of time.

Stayed one night at this charming and comfortable lodge during a drive to Santa Barbara. Definitely welcoming with a wood burning fireplace in the lobby and an awesome view of the Pacific Ocean just steps away. The room was small, but had a colorful mariner feel with a comfortable bed, clean bathroom and unique touches. Instead of a fridge bar,...

5 stars! What an amazing stay. Perfect location, steps from the beach. The room was clean, spacious, and the fireplace gave such a cozy touch. The decor was simple, clean and tasteful. There is so much to do around the area and we were given great tips on places to go. We especially enjoyed Ragged Point which we would not...

Hit PCH with our two dogs for a spur of the moment road trip from Los Angeles. We arrived at Cambria Beach Lodge in the mid evening and were greeted by an illuminated patio strung with market lights, the sound of waves crashing on the shoreline just feet away, and a beach inspired reception area warmed by a roaring fire....

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.
