We have used this wonderful "home away from home" on at least five occasions. I would not stay at any other facility in Cambria. One hears all about Moonstone Beach and I have stayed there twice before discovering this gem. There is no comparison. The rooms are suites, large and beautifully appointed. One can walk to any number of restaurants...

We so enjoyed our 4 night stay at The Burton Inn! The room was huge -- actually it had a separate living room with a couch & love seat, microwave & refrigerator and TV with DVD/VCR. They have a large library of free movies, so we saw 4 movies during our stay (there's no movie theater in Cambria, so this...

Having traveled around the world for the last few years, I have seen a lot of hotels, and a lot of service. The Burton Inn comes in as one of my favorite places to stay. The warm welcome is unmatched, and the rooms absolutely wonderful. We stayed in two different rooms, having decided to stay longer last minute. And both...

My wife and I stayed at the Burton Inn over the course of last week/weekend. To sum up our stay I would say it was very positive. Minus a few headaches like the bathrooms that so desperately need to be updated and tape on carpet that needs to be replaced the room was beautiful. I would suggest staying in the...

We loved our stay at the Burton Inn for our 10 year anniversary. The owners were out of the country so their son Jason and his fianc Shay took care of us. They are the nicest people! Check in was a breeze! Our room [#17] was beautifully decorated with an asian theme. We had a living room with refrigerator and...

The Burton Inn can't take full credit for the beautiful weather and Cambria's charm, but considering how well they did everything else, we wouldn’t be surprised if they exerted some positive influence on the sunshine during our stay. Without a doubt, the Burton Inn was a major contributor to the best holiday we've ever had. Let's start with the location....

We had a lovely time at the Burton Inn and in Cambria over Presidents' Day Weeked. As other reviews have stated, this is not a B&B, but a small hotel. Our suite (a "superior suite") was HUGE and had very comfortable furniture, was clean and had a mini fridge and microwave (that we didn't even use). We did use the...
