My wife and I enjoyed our 2 nights here President's day weekend. The complimentary continental breakfasts and healthy afternoon snacks hit the spot. The room was spacious (including the bathroom), very clean, and nicely furnished/decorated. We liked the fridge and microwave to store our snacks and leftovers. Overall, it was a great value (130 a night).
What a deal!!! wow
You know I read reviews everytime I book in a new locale but never take the time to write one... but this place deserves a nod... great deal, great views, greal location, really nice property... and such a deal on the rates... thumbs up!!!
Stopped here for 1 night on the way to Santa Barbara and LA. The ocean front room was great with lovely views and balcony.
Pros: Great room (ocean front highly recommended), very good restaurant right next door (seafood), good breakfast, very friendly and helpful staff.
I wouldn't stay here for more than a couple of nights becuase there is not a great deal to do except Hearts Castle. However, the Little Sur Inn makes for an excellent stop-over.
Welcome Home to the Little Sur Inn!
We stayed at the Little Sur Inn during Labor Day Weekend and found a new place we'd like to call home! We had a quaint corner ocean view room with a fireplace and a jacuzzi tub. The room also has a mini-fridge and a microwave. We were right across the street from the ocean. We did a sunset stroll on the beach and everyone was so friendly. It was so cute and peaceful to see everyone get ready to watch the sunset at the various inns lined up on the road. The continental breakfast was good and you can even borrow a VHS movie from the front office to watch in your room. Overall, we really enjoyed the Little Sur Inn and will come back!
Four days in Paradise
This really is a beautiful place to stay - exceptionally well furnished and very welcoming. We had an Ocean front room with the most stunning aspect and were able to watch sea otters and dolphins from our balcony. We cannot wait to return to Cambria and the Little Sur Inn particularly. Our best wishes and thanks to all the staff.
Pretty darn nice
Nice room, nice price, great location..... would come back again. Very friendly staff.
Great place to stay
Our 3 night stay at the Little Sur Inn was truly enjoyable. We got a good-sized room with a refrigerator and microwave (very helpful, as we brought along lots of food for our 4 year old with food allergies) as well as a nice partial view of the ocean for a reasonable price. One feature I really liked about the room (although my husband didn't really care) was the storage space: a cupboard and drawer near the refrigerator where we could put our food and utensils, drawers in the bathroom so you don't have to leave everything on the countertop, plus the usual drawers under the TV, and the typical hotel closet.
All of the staff members were friendly and helpful, with good suggestions about restaurants and shopping. One even helped me get the number to the local Curves (for some reason, they weren't listed in the phone book), so I could go work out!
In addition to a nice continental breakfast (bagels, muffins, pastries, cut fruit, orange juice, milk, packages of instant oatmeal), they provided an afternoon snack (cheese, crackers, veggies, grapes, sparkling cider), which was good to tide us over while we hemmed and hawed about where to eat dinner. Another helpful thing (although the other hotels probably have it too) was a binder full of menus for a lot of the restaurants in Cambria.
I'm glad we found this place, so that the next time we go to Cambria (and we WILL go back) we'll know exactly where to stay!
Romance and Relaxation
We have been married for 38 years and have been going to Cambria for 20 years. This was our 1st stay at Little Sur Inn. We had a corner room on lower level with a patio to sit and view the spectacular ocean. We left the door ajar at night so we could hear the ocean. The management was so nice and accommodating. We will be back. The Se Chest Restaurant next door is our all time favorite seafood restaurant. When we think of romance and relaxation, we think of Cambria.
I've stayed at several hotels in Cambria and The Little Sur Inn has been the most accomadating. All the rooms offer partial or full ocean view which is something unique compared to some of the other hotels. I would, without a doubt highly recommend this hotel to any traveler. The hotel staff was very friendly and courteous.
Little Sur Inn
This was a great place. The room was large with a gas fireplace, jacuzzi, separate shower. The view was fantastic; spent much time on the deck. Kept windows open during the night to hear the surf. Good restaurant next door.

... cars (rent a convertible and drive up the coast is not a very original concept) and hopped aboard a bus for the 20 min trip up the mountain to the 70,000 sq ft castle. **My work friends can insert a LR reference here.**. Well worth the stop and amazing to see as far as castles go. Elephant seal rookery... A bit up the road from the castle is a protected area of beach where elephant seals beach themselves to ...
Creekside Inn - basic motel
Highlights: beautiful scenic drive to the San Antonio Mission - all inland vast farmland and wineries, pretty rose garden at the Mission, drive over the San Lucia Range on the Nacimiento Fergusson Rd to the magnificent coast - more whale spotting, our walk in Cambria along the coast - more whales!
Lows: not getting to drive the Big Sur due to re marathon, missing out on Hearst Castle due to it being booked ...
... available and we know why. The views are gorgeous and it is a reservation only campground. Reserve well ahead if you want to stay there!
We continued down Highway 1 and found San Simeon S.C. and we enjoyed being there.
... in Big Sur for lunch and what I can only describe as a typical American lodge - wooden lodge covered with American flags cans of beer in cool boxes bargain at only $2 it was laid back with the baseball on. When we got to Cambria we went those Nit Witt Ridge - funky house so Daniel tells me.through Cambria village - it was so quite and as if time had stood still check out the pics. We arrived ...
Jonathan. The drive down from San Francisco to Morro Bay some say is the best road/drive in the world. I've not been on every road in the world but its hard to argue with what they say (for now anyway). The drive from San Francisco gave us the usual early big city traffic but once on the coast road the drive although slow in the summer traffic was something very special. The Big Sur by name the big ...
