    Historical Traveler Reviews Creekside Inn Cambria

    Bit Disappointed

    from

    We booked rooms at the Creekside Inn, Cambria to stay 2 nights and then added another night at a later date by using the "modify booking" part of their website.Luckily we found out that two couples in our group had ended up with two extra rooms booked in their names prior to staying there, as we could have been liable for the extra rooms. As we had quoted our reservation number etc, we concluded that there could be a problem with the website so it would be wise to double check any modification to your booking.

    We found the rooms very average and quite tired looking. Not flash at all, and not even all that clean. The biggest disappointment for us, as we were travelling around and had food with us, was the lack of a refrigerator. The office wasn't open all that often and they were not very helpful e.g. when we wanted to borrow a cork screw,we were told that there wasn't one available because they had lost too many. So we had to go down to the village and buy one.

    The rooms differed in size quite a bit, some were very small, so it would pay to ask when you are booking what the room size is.

    Cambria itself, is a pretty little place with some interesting shops

    and art galleries . Although Creekside Inn is conveniently located within walking distance of the village I would recommend looking at other options when booking a place to stay.

    Peaceful Escape

    from

    Straightforward motel in a quiet and peaceful setting. Rooms clean, staff friendly and helpful. From balcony in the room could watch deer grazing just next to the motel.

    Cambria town has a couple of good bars and restaurants for the evening and The Creekside Inn is located just far enough away to escape any noise.

    Excellent buy with no road noise

    from

    This is a clean nice realtively inexpensive older motel on the edge of town yet close enough to get there with a short walk. Very friendly staff but the office is closed from about 9 PM to 8 AM. It is situated in a very quiet area of town. Rooms with patios have pleasant views of woods. Very pet friendly. I'll stay there again.

    Cheap, clean, poor location

    from

    I made a one night stop at the Creekside Inn in March - checking in around 5pm and leaving again around 6.30am the following morning. The most obvious thing about the Creekside is its a bit dated - I can't recall the last time I saw a telephone as old as the one in the room. I had a creekside view - it looked like a bit of scrub, no sign of a creek! The room was reasonably large, 2 queen beds - the one I used was comfortable. TV was small but as I wasn't there to watch TV it wasn't important to me. The Inn is located on the outskirts of the town of Cambria and I would say at the wrong end of it! Cambria is not a town I'd go out of my way to visit again. If you are en-route down Highway 1 and just want a comfortable bed for a night, the Creekside Inn is fine, but if I were staying in the area I wouldn't stay in Cambria at all but spend a little extra and stay at Moonstone Beach - its so much more attractive a place to stay.

    Nice hotel on the outskirts of town

    from

    A good deal since I paid $49 per night for a room with two queen beds and a balcony overlooking the creek. The room was about average in terms of size and cleanliness. The hotel was a short walk from the center of Cambria but a little ways from the beach.

    Okay for the price

    from

    Cheerful and friendly staff. Plain, simple, small rooms, a bit shabbily furnished. Too small TV. Very clean. The bed was like a block of cement, the only real fault. A decent place to stay for the price. I paid $60 but learned later that I could have gotten the same room for $50 or even $40 if I'd happened to check the right web site. They would do better if they spruced the rooms up a bit, put in bigger TVs with a VCR and some videos on offer, and bought some new beds.

    If you like Motel 6...

    from

    This Inn is like a clean version of motel 6. Nothing fancy, basically a place to sleep and a shower. The heaters make a lot of noise.

    The staff is friendly, Cambria itself is beautiful. Enjoyed my trip, but next time I think i'll try a bed and breakfast.

    Not the best nights' sleep, but not bad

    from

    Spent 1 night at the Creekside Inn in Cambria (a lovely little town) in late September. From the outside, this is quite a pretty little motel, where somebody has made an effort to make it look presentable and quaint.

    The room was acceptable and was about what I'd expected, though the bathroom wasn't great. The avacado-green towels were covered in long black hairs from a previous guest that had obviously not come off in the wash, and the shower didn't work properly so I had a half-shower and half-bath.

    The double bed was again acceptable, though the mattress was a bit bendy and soft. The walls were also very thin, so I could hear people on both sides of me and above me talking and watching TV. There was a nice balcony overlooking the 'creek' (which was a dried out bit of scrubland!), and the hotel is just a few minutes walk from town with ample parking.

    If you visit Cambria, there is an excellent little restaurant owned by a lady called Deb from Singapore, who cooks local organic vegetables & local meats in an American-Asian hybrid fashion, with wonderful results. I had cubes of filet steak stir-fried with fresh crunchy vegetables, which was superb. European (smaller) sized portions of wonderful food and friendly service - can't remember what the restaurant is called, but it was roughly opposite the ambulance station on Main Street.

    Overall, the hotel was acceptable (at $79 a night) but I wouldn't rush back.

    Nice stay, Nice people, Nice Room

    from

    Had a nice stay here recently.

    Booked thru internet for a $49 two queen beds (you may get better deal thru ----- , but thats only for 2 people) room. Room had a nice TV, a table with two nice comfortable chairs, a relatively big bathroom with nicely stacked towels, soap, etc. No breakfast though.

    Location is right in the town near the eatries and a small market place. However, it's not by the side of the beach. Options near beach are easily beyond $100.

    A good value for this location.

    Great deal for a great location

    from

    My husband and I just returned from Cambria. The Creekside Inn was a great deal in early January. We had a King bed in a quiet room overlooking a river for $39/night. The room was spacious and very clean. Even better, the hotel is very cute from the outside and a short 5-minute walk to downtown. It's by no means swanky -- there are no fancy extras or big soaking tubs -- but it's a great choice for a budget hotel in cute Cambria.

    ... and then paid ten dollars to drive down to a National Park beach to see rock formations. However we all had difficulty remaining upright in the howling wind which also, with the fine sand, had a sand-blasting effect, almost stripping skin off and turning glasses opaque. Nobody stayed long. The narrow two mile long dirt road down to the beach and back was fun, as it was single track, twisty, through thick woods and had few passing places. A bit of a challenge. Today the ...

    ... we neared Cambria, we spotted a beach below the road which had seals on it. Not just one or two, but hundreds. All lined up like sunbathers on a Spanish beach in the summer, but without the parasols.
    What a sight!

    There are reckoned to be bout 18000 in all, but there were only about half that number there at this time of year. On every beach we passed, there they were. flat out, fast asleep. row upon row of them. Every now and then a ...

    This morning we left San Simeon and drove up the coast to Carmel. It was really beautiful, but be warned there is NO cell phone service until you get to Big Sur and it is spotty there. Our first stop was to see the Elephant seals which we were told we would see just before the Piedras Blanca's light house. We had no idea there would be so many. Over 17,000 come up on the beaches this time of year to molt and birth their pups. It was an amazing site! Most ...

    ... Festival. What a trip. Everywhere inside and outside of Cambria there were scarecrows. Some of them were so real, it was hard to tell them from the people sitting on the benches. They were really fun to look at and wonder what the person was like that had the mind to create that one??!!

    ... SB about 7:30 - so being able to be flexible we picked up a publication of coupons and we decided to stop in Morro Bay for the night, getting a bargain of a room with the oceans (let's call it fog!) view of this rock I don't know much about yet for $80 a night plus tax! I love a bargain! And there are seals here, so wonderful to see them. We had a magnificent dinner at a place we can recommend on the Waterfront called The Cannery. We followed Ish's ...
