staff Near beach Near restaurants Comfy beds
Great place, will come back for a longer stay
Within walking distance of several restraunts, oceanfront with a few yards from hotel. Quiet and peaceful.
Like almost every hotel, needs an ottoman for upholstered chairs or recliner. We like to enjoy reading and relaxing, not "tourists."
The room was nicely furnished and comfortable
Far too expensive for the facilities provided. No safe in the room and no air conditioning. When this was questioned we were told the weather was much warmer than usual which I think unlikely. Photographs misleading, our bathroom was similar to a Holiday Inn Express, not the same as the one on the Hotel Web site. Was expecting something far more luxurious for the price.
The ocean was just across the street.
We have no complaints.
The location is very good, staff was helpful and the rooms are comfortable and new
We could not use our mobile phones in the hotel, there was no coverage. The weather was cold and foggy, so it was difficult with the picnic breakfast.
Loved the position of Blue Dolphin inn. Very nice room, comfortable bed, breakfast delivered promptly, Friendly staff. Bathroom well stocked with towels and toiletries.
Only problem was room very hot even with fan .
Patio needs a better separation between the rooms
Location perfect on Moonstone beach, where we watched the sunset! We got a back room which made it a bit pricey, but we had a king size bed and our son his own bed and tv. Comfy bathrobes, and attentive staff! You pay for the location.
Breakfast came to room, which might be nice if you have a better room (with a view). Breakfast OK, but nothing more. It actually brought down the general impression a bit, in an otherwise really nice hotel.
Location...had ocean view room and watched dolphins from patio while having breakfast. Right on the boardwalk along the beach. Room clean, comfortable and well-appointed with jacuzzi bath. Warm friendly reception. Moonstone restaurant next door was good for dinner.
Wifi intermittent as was cable TV. Breakfast was a little uninspiring, came in boxes in a paper carrier bag.
Our oceanfront room had a spectacular view and sound! Our room and the hotel in general was beautifully furnished and immaculate. The (included) delivered breakfast was excellent each day.
Our complaints were minor: housekeeping staff did not replenish our toiletries. The front desk manager upon our arrival was let's say lacking in social skills and warmth. The room we had initially reserved really had no Oceanview at all.
No air conditioning even though breeze from the coast was very nice, it ww would have used the air when sleeping since room with patio was on street level.
+ We had a lovely room with sea view.
- A limited (cold) breakfast is delivered in the morning, to be eaten in the room or elsewhere (e.g. beach). This was not our thing. - the beach was dirty and, hence, no fun.
Room was very nice, breakfast was wonderful, added touch that there were DVDs to borrow in the evening. Helpful restaurant referrals.
Might be nice to add a ceiling fan to room? Just a thought, overall our stay was amazing, thank you!
Lovely staff, gorgeous room, great location, & excellent dinner recommendation.
A bit expensive & wi-fi was quite slow
Beautiful location Lovely breakfast and nicely appointed room Friendly and helpful staff Worth every cent
Lovely seafront location. Friendly helpful staff. Gorgeous room.
Remote from Cambria town's selection of restaurants unless you want to drive. Only 2 restaurants within walking distance.
Apart from our initial experience at reception the staff were all extremely helpful.
On arrival we were not impressed by the receptionist who simply asked us to sit for 10 to 15 mins whilst she looked after someone else - no offer of even a glass of water. Before dealing with us she then started talking to another staff member. Check in was not good.
The ocean front room was awesome. 2nd floor was where it was at!!! Had windows open all night listening to waves crash against the rocks. Beautiful!!!
I liked everything. Room was $265 all in. Wish it was a little less but - it was money well spent. Excellent location and room!!!
The room was clean and beautiful, We had a king room with ocean view and were able to sit out on our patio every morning and watch the ocean while eating breakfast. It rained the first night we arrived but the hotel provided umbrellas and towels so we could still enjoy the boardwalk which was steps from the hotel. Will bring my running shoes next year!
Cell service in Cambria was sporadic and I could not get any service in my room but the hotel provided free wi fi
Loved the beautiful room and fireplace. Listening to the ocean waves all night was wonderful!
Loved the decor and the amazing view from our room. Staff were friendly, always available and willing to get anything you needed. Very quiet and perfect in every way.
Was not too crazy about the boxed breakfast, but I do understand the reasoning behind it. I would have preferred an nice sit down breakfast with dishes and a place setting. Food was good, however......
The staff was very gracious and accommodating to our needs. We loved the location and the view from our room was incredible
There was no reception with our cell phones. But that was just minor
