... First on the list was a shopping outlet about a hour to hour and a half drive. We managed to arrive there at about 11:30 and the first thing we see are two hot ladies carrying bags and bags of shopping.. It looked like the scene from Pretty Woman I swear! Then I managed to get a look at them and it was in fact Kirsty and Meg's.. They had left Muscle Beach and had been shopping since 9:00am.. We all had some lunch and then headed off ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Burton Inn Cambria
We love the Burton Inn
We think the Central California Coast is a piece of heaven and the Burton Inn is a wonderful place to rest and relax after a day of exploring the beautiful area. We slept so well in a bed that was simply luxurious.
My husband and I visited Hearst Castle in San Simeon recently and chose to stay at the Burton Inn in nearby Cambria for 2 nights. The inn is perfectly situated on a quiet street in Cambria's charming East Village, within easy walking distance of quaint shops and superb restaurants.
Nice Place, Central to Cambria Town, Great Hosts.
Our stay at the Burton Inn was wonderfull. We stayed in a two room suite with a killer king size bed, made for royalty. We appreciated the kind hosts, who welcomed us and spent some time chatting about fun stuff. When we were interested in surfing some of the local breaks, they offered us their own personal surfboards to use. Now that's hospitality.
Easy to work with and communicate with, especially since we were coming from Hawaii.
The breakfast and wine was nice, too.,
The weekend we were there was freakin' hot for Cambria. Nonetheless, there was some central A/C that provided some relief. Try staying in the upstairs room with the private staircase. We loved it.
Watch out for Turbo the Dog. He's pretty frienndly.
Favorite place in cambria
This is the best place to stay in Cambria.
Very comfortable room , friendly staff, and
excellent breakfast. Would stay here again.
We arrived late and the two room suite was fine, however it was very hot and stuffy. The a/c wasn't on and we had to open the windows to cool things off, which should have worked (given the cool coastal air) but it was actually morning until the air was comfortable for sleeping. We could have asked the management to help out but it was too late and things seemed locked down. Small complaint though......otherwise the place was just fine, great location and really polite and helpful hosts. The 'breakfast in bed' feature consisted of a couple of tasty breads, yougart, OJ and some fresh cherries. Recommended.......just ask to cool things off before turning in!
What a great place! Our room was beautiful, excellent hospitality, and the "continental" breakfast was so much more than we expected. The location couldn't be more perfect. The hosts go above and beyond! (And we loved Turbo the dog!!!)
Perfect place to stay
My daughter and I just returned from a trip to Cambria, and the Burton Inn was delightful. Our room was very spacious, clean and quiet and we could look out our window to the colorful gardens in the back of the building. We liked having breakfast left for us in the refrigerator so we could eat whenever we wanted in the morning. The hosts were so welcoming and provided wine and cheese every evening. They also have an extensive collection of videos in their library. The Burton Inn is walking distance to a number of excellent restaurants and shops. Altogether the perfect place to stay!
Excellent all around. Great attention to detail. Rooms are superior.
Burton Drive Inn
Burton Drive Inn is perfectly located in the East Village of Cambria.
Walking distance to all of the restaurants and quaint shops. Parking is on site.
My room was large enough to include a king size bed, sofa, large console television and a sitting area for dining or letter writing. I had a balcony overlooking their beautiful garden.
I can't say enough about Terry...a very warm, friendly and generous host/owner.
I loved my stay at the Burton Drive Inn and am planning on returning again.
Burton Lane Inn
Excellent visit, large suites with king size beds. Totally non-smoking facility. Continental breakfast left in your refrigerator. In the center of old Cambria, everything within easy walking distance. Very friendly and accomodating hostess.
