... the real thing; yoghurt is so stuffed with un yoghurty ingredients as to be not just unrecognisable but gloopy and inedible. One of the main ingredients being the dreaded corn syrup which they manage to put in just about everything.
The excellent thing about this is that it has given me an even greater distaste of sweet things and I am longing to get back to real food! It really is no wonder that people over here are the size they are, reading the ingredients on ...
... a year there, but had only been getting about 2in. She said the pine trees are dying off and they’re hoping for a lot of rain in March. I loved checking out the local art, but most of it was out of my price range.
Afterwards, Dave and I walked to a little restaurant and talked while I had a glass of wine. We collected our dry laundry and called it a night. The annual sea glass festival is a week away so we’ll unfortunately be missing ...
... thing we picked up the supplies in SB! The pleasant countryside was a nice change from the busy city roads. We made it to the top of Asuncion Ridge, with sweeping views of the rolling hills. In days when the fog is not in you can see the sea. Not today. We were welcomed with a glass of red and almonds. The BnB has a vineyard on the property. It was a nice drop. We settled in for dinner, with the supplies bought from town. Yup...just bread and ham for us....yes seriously it ...
... Hearst Castle is a testament to the extraordinary skill of architect, Julia Morgan, who was singularly responsible for designing some 700 buildings, including Hearst's folly. The second tour took us through the upstairs suites of bedrooms, bathrooms, libraries, and Hearst's study. Like the grand rooms below, these suites are filled with antiquities from Europe, including the ceilings, furnishings, and Religious statues, icons, ...
... sky, we could hear in the distance the cries of what sounded like wolves or coyotes - we weren't too sure what animal - howling with the full moon. It felt very eerie as we sat there in front of the campfire with the howling. It felt as though it was straight out of those Alfred Hitchcock thrillers. We felt very lucky to be experiencing such a wilderness for ourselves as we sat and ate our evening meal, keeping each other company around the camp fire in a very lonesome part of ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Creekside Inn Cambria
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.
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
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.
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
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
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...
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.
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.
Nice stay, Nice people, Nice Room
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
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.
