Enjoyed a ground floor room with a nice enough view through the parking lot. Helpful staff at checkin. Room clean and on the larger side compared to some other locations along Moonstone. I will say my only real gripe would be that the shower head height is a tad on the short side.

Great location, across the street from the boardwalk and beach. Walking distance to a very nice place to eat. The room was very nice and well kept. The bed was very comfortable. Because we are seniors the breakfast was just right. Short distance to town and all the shops. We are looking forward to staying at the Castle INN again.

I love staying on Moonstone Beach when I head up to Paso Robles for wine club events. Love this place. Excellent value in comparison to other hotels in this area and it is an easy drive over the 46 west and wineries

My aunt and I stayed here during the Harvestfest weekend. The room was clean, quiet and had a large closet for our stuff. It also had a refrigerator that came in handy when we bought a bunch of cheese to go with our wine to bring home. It had a great view but was very simple. There were no extra...

The hosts were all great and very helpful, the staff great, the room was very clean, great view - could not have been better. Oh, the chairs outside facing the water - what a sunset!! Really like that the beach trail is just across the road. Great walking to enjoy the ocean. Also, great restaurants within walking distance.

Great location. Nice clean rooms, however, the walls are pretty thin which makes for a noisy stay. The little breakfast was a nice gesture and most places wouldn't do what The Castle Inn did. I would stay here again, but I'd also like to check out the other options.

I stayed here for the first time in October 2016. It was a very easy check in and the gentleman was very nice. The rooms were very clean and the beds were comfortable. They serve a continental breakfast every morning with a good variety of breakfast items. About an hour after we checked out, the gentleman from the front desk...

We really enjoyed the Castle Inn. The water pressure was inconsistent and the breakfast was very basic. But the property was lovely. We enjoyed the pool and spa. The view from the room was exquisite. We were steps from the water.

Great view to the ocean, average acomodation, poor breakfast (very limited to mostly pastries, and very limited seating. We do like the location and prices is reasonable. We would plan to stay there again.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
It was one of the very first motels built along the Cambria coast when cattle still roamed on Moonstone Beach Drive. The property boasts one of the best geographical locations on the beach. Right in front of the lodge are amazing tide pools to discover sealife, gorgeous lookouts, Leffingwell Landing Park and a wide-open beach upon which to stroll. The grounds at the Inn are broad and situated with comfortable sitting areas for enjoyable ocean viewing and people-watching. All of the guestrooms offer views of the ocean, but the upstairs rooms provide an excellent vantage point to watch the daily sunsets. The rooms at Castle Inn are simple but more than adequate to provide a wonderful stay at the beach. It is our intention to make the property one of the best values along Moonstone Beach and a great option for families. ... more   less
