Travel Blogs from Cambria
The trip is coming to an end as we start to make our way up the coast back to San Francisco to fly home again. But before we do that we have a little trip up Highway 1 to get us there with a night in Cambria and a night in Monterey Bay.
The coast up to San Francisco …
It was with some sadness we set off for our final destination of northern California but there were plenty of miles to get used to the idea while entertained by our i-pods and the wonderful podcasts from the British Museum of A History of the World in 100 objects.
A long day of driving was broken up with lunch in Santa Barbara with Melora …
... antiquities to be returned, but as they were originally purchased legitimately, perhaps they do not have a reason. One thing that I am thankful for is that these incredible works of art are being preserved, are all in one place, are well-loved, and are available to the general public to view. The gardens are no less spectacular, with the guest cottages, gardens, paved areas, and the magnificent Neptune pool. Although cold, the weather ...

Headed out of Carmel down Highway 1. The 90 mile stretch of highway from Carmel to San Simeon is supposed to be one of the most scenic drives anywhere. The Bixby Bridge near Big Sur has been used in numerous ads, movies and TV show so you've seen it before, even if you didn’t know. We aren’t sure the total of bridges along this route, but originally ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Moonstone Landing Cambria
We stayed at Moonstone Landing for my wife's birthday last Saturday. The facility itself is great - we had a beautiful ocean front room with a fireplace, jacuzzi tub and a nice big balcony. The ocean view is amazing from the rooms on the front of the hotel, especially from the second floor. And the location is perfect if you're planning to dine at the Sea Chest - a great restaurant that's right next door.
i stayed at the moonstone landing hotel for one night. i had the room on the bottom with the ocean view. what a beautiful view. it was right across the street. the room was spacious and clean. the bathroom had a jacuzzi bath with a shower connected...you could hop right over. there was a dvd player...in which the front desk had movies you could borrow for the night. overall the room was great. i would definitely go back there. continental breakfast was very good. they put out a lot of different choices from.... breakfast cakes, bagels, cereals, oatmeal, muffins, fruits, coffee, tea, juices and milk. absolutely no complaints!
Great cosy hotel
I really loved this hotel. There was a gorgeous fireplace in the room, really comfy beds and the most amazing view of the sea with a balcony that made it feel like we were on a ferry!
Also, really helpful staff/management.
The bathroom was lovely - really luxurious.
The only thing I would say is that there was no temperature control, which could be a problem for some people.
We stayed at this hotel for one night and wished we had booked longer. Friendly staff, lovely room, amazing view of the sea, spa bath, lovely breakfast. We found the DVD player and the good choice of free DVDs was very handy for our teenage children.Would definately stay there again.
We have been staying here 2-3 times a year since they opened. It is a fantastic spot with great rooms and the most amazing views. We love to get breakfast, sit on our balcony and watch the ocean in the morning. In the evening enjoy a bottle of wine from Paso Robles wine tasting we purchased earlier during the day. The staff is wonderful. The breakfast and evening appetizers great.
Great view, nice staff - helpful & cheerful.
Two Faced Service
location was gorgeous so was the room BUT.....
if i wanted a presuptuous rude experience, even after it was over, i would have stayed at my mothers.
sorry this review isnt kissing the butt of the hotel owner, never the less its true. was not allowed to move the chairs at the table in order to sit and enjoy "view" & was accused of causing plumbing problems- you know what keep the deposit.$100 isnt going to give owners a better personality.
Fantastic ocean views and marble jacuzzi tub
My husband and I spent two glorious nights at this new hotel, a great room overlooking the ocean with balcony, a very large jacuzzi tub and wonderful baked goods from a local italian bakery for breakfast. We enjoyed delicious refreshments in the evenings and excellent restaurants nearby. The hotel staff was very helpful and attentive, we shall return often!
Fabulous oceanfront getaway!
An unexpected treat to find a romantic Inn with balconies overlooking the ocean, friendly staff and a generous breakfast featuring Italian pastries! We loved our stay and will be back to once again enjoy the marble whirlpool bathtub and sunsets!
