Lets set things straight. This is a 2* motel, what do you expect...? The place was relatively clean, could do with a dusting. The TV worked fine, nice view of the creek, all furnishing were ok, beds were ok. I like a hard bed, so for me it was fine.. The price was good, at $31 a head you can't...

Like staying at a flea market store. Couch was a 1960s throw back the couch cushion was actually a lawn chair mattress with tie downs and wasn't even close to matching the couch. Not one piece of comfortable furniture in the room. The mattress on the king bed needed to be replaced 15 years ago, so they just put a...

The hotel was average. The beds are incredibly hard. They are very warn in and hard. You get what you pay for. Like I said, good for one night. Good walking distance to town, about a 7min walk. We did try Linn's restaurant which was delicious! Overall, the stay here was OK.

You can tell that at some point, about ten years ago, somebody cared about this place. The furnishings are quite nice, it's well designed and doesn't feel like a cheap motel. It's also dirty though, and worn and old. It has little to recommend it except the price. And the reception closes at 8pm, so good luck if anything happens....

I had stayed at creekside nearly ten years ago and found it I clean and reasonable hotel. This last sat 11/14/15 my wife and I stayed again one night. When we entered the room we noticed a strong cigarette odor. The carpet floor was dirty with large dust bunnies under tv armoir visible as well as small children's toys and...

CreeksideInnCambria, Owner at Creekside Inn, responded to this review

Mr. Smario had booked two rooms for himself and a "good" friend to attend a winemakers dinner that he was quick to point out he had also paid for. After being in his room for more than three hours, he phoned the front desk to say he was having difficulty accessing the internet. Not another guest on a sold out...

Room 11, a balcony room, for which we paid extra, was OK, no more than that. I cannot criticize the place on most aspects, but it has the appearance and feel of a place that is coasting and what it offers is falling behind the price it is charging. Check out their web site and perhaps you will see what...

We stayed at the Creekside in on our way home from San Francisco in May and the rooms are old and in need of updating/remodel but the price isn't bad, the rooms are clean and we loved sitting on the balcony and listening to the birds and frogs. So we came back in September for the Pinedorado Day celebration and...

Creekside Inn is a budget motel in Cambria but it is hard to call it a budget hotel considering the price that is charged. Here's why: All the walls were scuffed and needing painting., especially the bathroom. There is no AC and it was barely cool enough to sleep by 10:00 with the windows open. Unfortunately the neighbor immediately next...

After reading all the reviews and prices of various places to stay in Cambria, we decided to try Creekside. The room was comfortable with a nice balcony for 2 overlooking the non-existant stream below but the bathroom sink area in our room was almost non-existant as well. There is no refrigerator or microwave but they do provide a coffee pot....
