Nice little hotel near the beach. Our room had a fireplace and jacuzzi tub. Decent breakfast in included. Great walking paths along the beach and close to downtown Cambria. Like any hotel suggest a room away from the maid work area. Can be very noisy in the morning. Service was great!

We truly enjoyed our visit. Staff in home away from home is everything. Very nice people and that was on top of the ocean views, closeness of the ocean, restaurants. There was something for everyone at the breakfast. No complaints at all except we couldn't stay longer
