Roomn, gardens, dining Staff in lobby were not that helpful and not courteous. Dining staff were excellent. You need to have a gift shop where incidentals can be purchased along with souvenirs.
Beautifil rooms and gardens, very clean and comfortable, great amenities, perfect for families
We loved the woodsy lodge style of the hotel. From our first steps on the front porch, everything had a very comfortable and homey feel. Loved that the hotel had a pool for the kids and a lounge for the adults. The rooms were a little outdated, but not bad. They were much bigger than I'd expected. The breakfast included with the room was ok. It's what you'd expect of a free breakfast (pancakes, sausage, scramble eggs, toast, plus oatmeal and cereals). Afterwards we walked the grounds and discovered the most amazing gardens and paths to explore. We wound stay here again. The rooms were a little outdated, but not bad. Overall, we were pleased.
The staff couldn't have been kinder to the bride & groom. The guests were directed by staff and always helpful. Very relaxing environment, comfortable walking paths, and the breakfast was always plentiful and hot. Bed was super comfortable, plenty of towels and the bathroom was spacious for the shower, but not tub in the "standard" room. As a local who was here for a friends wedding, I'm very proud to highly recommend this hotel if you're in the area. Air conditioning didn't work, but that's not unusual for a hotel near the beach. The open window cooled the room during the night. Wish I had a bathtub, but it wasn't a major priority for me since I was there for only one night and focused on the wedding festivities.
Cabin-like rooms/setting Spaciousness of property Light show at holiday time Breakfasts Key negative: WIFI generally not there, both in the room and even in the lobby Mattress was generally good - a little lumpy
Pool, breakfast, location Didn't have hot water one day, didn't have room cleaned one day.
grounds and garden were beautiful; enjoyed bungalow with patio. proximity to ocean
We've loved this place, good location and comfortable. We came back the second time for all the good reasons it offers. We like the staff, facility and great continental breakfast. It is a very good place to watch the sunset and have leisurely walk in the morning. It's a great play to stay for either a long weekend or extended stay, family or couples. Highly recommended!!!
We had a wonderful relaxing weekend and we will be back
Not worth the price asked for the room. You made it look so plush in your computer website, I've traveled a lot in my lifetime and the place was a cheap place trying hard to look good but doesn't quite cut it!! The price per night should have been about $125-135 and not in the $200 range. I have stayed some years back in the cottages next door and they were decorated with opulence reflecting the price you pay.
Friendly curtetious staff, cleanliness, location... No real dislikes
Excellent mattress & pillows. Nice decor. Windows on both side let lovely breeze through the room. Good coffee and arm oatmeal for breakfast. Nice outdoor seating & picnic tables with grills. Can't beat the convenience of the board walk entry directly across the street. Well landscaped with nice variety of flowers. Noisy upstairs neighbors and no AC or fan to drown out noises or the barking dog that seemed to be alone at midnight. Breakfast could be improved with fresh fruit and warm eggs or waffle.
It's real close to the beach and boardwalk, (right across the street!), and a short drive to downtown and some great places to eat and drink.
Perfect half way point between San Fransisco and LA along the PCH. I'd stay here again, beautiful view of the rocky coast and there are harbor seals that rest on the shore right in front of the hotel. About 15 minutes north their is also a viewing area for elephant seals. The room was spacious, and the bed was super comfy. There is a breakfast but we chose to go across the highway (2 minute drive) to the cute little town to have dinner and breakfast. The shower was a tad small and the hot tub was not very hot but those were minor negatives in overall stay.
It was steps from the beach. For the price, we were underwhelmed. The shower had bad water pressure, the included breakfast came to us still frozen, the room had a buzzing sound, and we expected more for the price of the room.
The street is full of small hotels. Close to the moonstone beach. Breakfast is included and will be delivered to your room. Ocean view room is a must try. room is clean. Free wifi. nice staff.
Good location across the road from a boardwalk and beach. Great staff and the motel tries to make up how dated it is by offering to do whatever they can to make your stay great, from bringing breakfast to your door to having a Kerig machine in your room. Dated rooms.
Comfortable, friendly service, right by the beach so super convenient. Gorgeous view of the water and even saw whiles. Nice pool.
Wifi was down at check in. Little information was provided on what they were doing to fix the problem. Once it was up and running it worked well.
Clean, Quiet and helpful at the desk.
Nice cozy accommodation s
the location was very good, parking was easy, and we were given the room we requested. I did not get to see/use the pool as I arrived too late and left early. But it was nice that there was a pool. The room was not as comfortable as I would have hoped at that price. Beds were fairly hard, bedding was cheap feeling. The room was extremely hot, but there was no air conditioning. We opened the windows, but there were no screens, so we had to risk bugs. The walls were very thin and we could hear our neighbors. The continental breakfast was available in the front office, to be eaten in your room. However even though you had to "take out" your meal, there were no lids for coffee cups... Overall I did not think it was much of a value.
Close proximity to the ocean Room need upgrade
I was OK with the rate I was paying until I was checking in. The desk clerk was on the phone and was offering this person a "walk-in rate" $50 less than I had paid. Was a little upset.
Recuperating from a previous surgery, I was looking for some r & r and found it. Old facility, dirty, lack of space ; I wanted to leave. Excellent locale .
Spa + firepit at sunset, fireplace, and free warm breakfast. It was close to the beach and resturants. Nothing
Room was awesome. Staff was wonderful. Can't think of any negative pertaining to our visit to the Fog catcher Inn. Although I did like the Hot Tub and Fire Pit.
Our room was beautiful with great views of Ocean and rolling foothills. Within walking distance of restaurants, bars and beach boardwalks. Less than a mile from downtown Cambria. Very friendly and helpful staff. Prompt and thorough. There was no air conditioning unit. We were reliant on opening windows and a singular fan in the room.
Staff location room Staff, location, room
There was hair on the shower walls and floor. There is no air conditioning and the room was very warm. Our room's window faced north so it didn't get much of a breeze.
Clean place nice decor friendly staff GREAT location! My room did not have a view :-/
Everything! The staff was superb and the rooms were perfect. I would absolutely go back and I recommend this to everyone and anyone. This was, hands down, one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. I was there on my birthday and the staff took note of it and left me a cake and a card. I've never been treated so well at a hotel. 5 stars all the way!
Nice property with good rooms. Not on the beach and no water views is a downside. Breakfast is included, but its a pretty meager spread with not much effort put behind the food. Staff was very helpful.
The location and facilities are very nice. I particularly enjoyed their hot tub. We were told that there was free afternoon sangria and that the wine bar served wine and bar snacks until 11:30 PM. Neither statement is exactly true. There is free sangria but only until the very limited amount they make runs out – and they refuse to make more even though they have the ingredients available – and the bar only serves snacks until the staff gets tired of making them – which was very much earlier in the evening than is advertized.
Staff was very friendly. The ambiance was fabulous. Very comfortable. The breakfast buffet was only so so for the price we paid for the room. I thought it could have been better given all the fresh fruits available in California. The danishes were a little stale. Not much of a variety.
It was very quit, clean and comfortable.
It was near everything, and the singer Saturday night was great We had way too many ants in our room. If you put food down for one minute there would be a thousand ants, they were all over the room .
The staff was friendly and new their hotel well. The location was conveniently close to town. The hotel is not exactly on Moonstone beach which was a disappointment. Also noise from the hallway permeated into the far too easily.
Great location, beautiful view, spotless nicely decorated suite with small patio, fireplace, refrigerator, large bathroom, jacuzzi tub. Full breakfast buffet included. Friendly staff.....al and all a perfect weekend get away! Expensive but a great room right on the water in the middle of summer!
Room was beautiful. Breakfast was very good. Perfect location.
It was near the beach. The room was a little dated and the bed was NOT comfortable. Also it made me itchy and I think something bit me.
Beach front, rooms clean and comfortable
The location of this hotel was absolutely fabulous, as was the front desk staff. One night here was truly not enough. This hotel is a gem and the restaurant next door was wonderful, too.
Definitely should be more than 2 stars. Maybe the rating was done before their recent renovation? Loved the wine reception, staff and location were excellent and we enjoyed the hot tub. Also loved having breakfast delivered to the room. No air conditioner but I'm sure it's not often needed in this part of CA. However, we could have used it in the late afternoon.
This guest did not leave comments about this hotel.
I liked the location of the inn. Though I would have liked to be closer to the beach, it was surrounded by cute cafes and shops. I did not like the fact that they asked for credit card information online and charged us at the hotel still with a one hundred dollar deposit on top of it all.
Of course hearst castle was great! Cambria was also great. What my wife and i, also my friends did not like were the beds They were to hard, not comfortable, everything else was fine.
Nothing.... will never consider staying here again. We reaerved a room with 2 queen size beds and a balcony and they gave us a room with 1 pull out bed. The sofa bed was so uncomfortable that even my 4yr old was complaining about his back hurting. I would like for the owner and or manager to try and slee on the sofa bed and beds....

The room was very clean and comfortable, and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Just a short walk to shopping and restaurants. We had a lovely stay!
The room itself was clean and comfortable. The balcony was a nice feature and there was room to sit and relax before turning in for the evening. The sinks didn't drain and there was a big wad of hair in the shower drain. We were happy we only stayed here one night because we didn't want to shower here and we didn't.
The only thingh I liked is the town is located in. Place is dated, the water in the shower comes out really hot while you shower then all of a sudden the water comes out freezing cold, every time some one in the next room uses the water or flushes the toilet while you shower this happens..
Staff were friendly on the phone. Good place to stop for our drive from Solvang to Monterey. Heater doesn't work. Very noisy - I can hear other rooms showering and walking. The room and bathroom were not as clean as I hoped. Upgrading to a balcony room was quite useless - no view, and it seems that the room is exactly same as the standard one, with primary difference being that the room was upstairs. Realistically, this room is worth less than $80, the cost reflects the location and perhaps the scarcity of nicer places to stay.
The Motel is a little older (which means the rooms are larger than newer rooms) and very nicely remodeled. I see from reading previous suggestions they take them to heart, as our room was very comfortable and clean. The staff is knowledgeable and very helpful. The Pastries on the weekend are incredible. Shops and restaurants are literally a 5 minute walk from the Motel. Coffee was OK, but didn't match the Pastries at all. A small refrigerator would have been nice. Especially, for longer stays.
Excellent staff and great location. Updated... As far as furniture and technology
The staff was very helpful. When someone didn't know the answer to s question or concern, he/she would find out promptly. The all suite inn had very large comfortable nicely decorated suites. The bathroom, while large, was a bit dated and garish.
The Burton Inn was a cool little place. Close to all the shops, restaurants, and bars. My wife and I had a great time exploring Cambria and wine tasting at all the locations. Had a great bed and breakfast feel and was real treat to try something new.
This place is very tough to rate. Room was very large and cozy. The young lady at the desk was very friendly and informative. She offered suggestions of places to go and places to eat. That being said there are a couple of negatives. The TV was older than most of my children. The sitting room/living room area was more updated. The bathroom was very outdated. Tub was way too tall for easy in and out. Probably not the best for older people. If asked would I return I would say yes. Clean room, friendly staff and comfortable bed.
Everything was OK - nothing stands out as being very good. Online it looks like it will be cottages. However, it is much more like a Motel 6. The rooms are not cottages, but long hallways with rooms on either side. Very few rooms have a water room. The breakfast was poor.
Staff were excellent, the breakfast was amazing. Location was great to walk to nearby shops and restaurants. The gardens and back porch were also wonderful. Liked the afternoon 5-6 snacks It may be that our expectations re b&bs are unrealistic. The room decor was very dated and unappealing. The bath was off the gathering room, tiny shower stall and sink.
Most amazing breakfast I've ever had - everything from scratch!
We loved it here. The building, the room, and the public areas were all full of charm. The grounds were peaceful and welcoming. The breakfast was excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We felt like we were staying at a friend's place!
