"across the street from beach"
I thought that the Little Sur Inn was a gem. My only regret was that we were there for only one night. I loved that you could cross the street and Moonstone Beach was right there with a beautiful sunset and surfers to watch. We used this as a stay over while visiting Hearst Castle and there were plenty of places to eat very close to the hotel and also […] down the street in Cambria. The breakfast was decent and the rooms themselves were very nice with refrigerator and fireplace. Would definetly recommend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
We had 4 people in our room, and I have to say, it was a great place to stay! Room very large and comfortable, bathroom large. Hotel staff very friendly. The location of the hotel was wonderful, very close to must see sights and fabulous view.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Enjoyed our stay"
My wife and I were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were nice, spacious, clean, modern, and comfortable. We will definitely stay here again! If anything I was disappointed that we didn't plan our trip so that we could stay longer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hate to tell how great it was"
I really don't want anyone else to know about this little gem of a hotel. It was just perfect. Would highly recommend.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The room was very nice> Clean, nice size, nice view, nice location. However both receptionists (day and night) had absolutely no personalities! They checked us in, served breakfast and couldn't even crack a smile. Doesn't make you feel welcome or like coming back! Such a disappointment for such a nice place!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Only problem, we couldn't stay longerGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Exceeded all expectations"
One of the nicest accomodations ever!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My husband and I enjoyed our stay at the Little Sur Inn. The view was beautiful. Every morning and night we took a stroll on the wooden path along the ocean. There were friendly squirrels, rabbits, lizards....colorful flowers, harbor seals, tide pools, and WHALES!!! We will definitely be back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My only regret was not leaving the kids at home. We had an ocean view, the room was large, the beds were comfortable and the sheets were soft. The bathroom was beautiful and had both a stand alone shower and tub with jets; very romantic. I would stay again. Only complaint is unless you eat like a bird for breakfast, don't expect that to fill you up […] . Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic room with a view!"

"CA Highway 1"
Great hotel, right on the beach, cozy room. My whole family loved it. Continental breakfast was plain, but we were not there for food.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We stayed in one of the ocean view rooms on the second floor so all my ratings of my experience were the highest possible. However, most of the rooms in this hotel have a small window that sits at parking lot level. My experience, and thus my ratings, would have been A LOT different had we been in one of those rooms. The location just steps across the […] street from the beach is outtanding - regardleas of room. Complimentary Breakfast in am was very limited, but appreciated nonetheless.

Nice place to stay for one or two nights. Nearest dining is expensive for mediocrity!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Over-priced for what you get"
The main plus is the proximity to San Simeon. That's also the main minus as it means it is almost exclusively catering to tourists with all the high prices that dont reflect real value. The room is comfortable but not luxurious; the dining nearby is so-so, but expensive. The inn would rate a three and a half stars on the normal scale, but the rates […] are 4 to 5 star. No problems encountered and a very nice beach to stroll around, but at inflated prices that encroached on the enjoyment factor. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very clean and comfortable, but breakfast..."
The hotel was very clean and comfortable, very well maintained, definitely not the average inn in that regard. But we are somewhat disappointed with the breakfast. It was poor and with not enough space to have it. In a country where bacon and eggs is probably the national average breakfast, where the term 'brunch' was coined, some inns, including this […] one, offer orange juice, cereal, super sweet pastries, coffee, tea and such, with three tables altogether. It was not enough for me, and probably will not be for the average man. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Our new favorite in Moonstone Beach"
What a great little place to stay. This property is family owned and reflects the owners pride. Clean and good sized room. Partial ocean view. Beautiful sunset and sunrises. Just what we were looking for. Extremely comfortable. Cheese and crackers at cocktail hour and lite sweets in the morning. Even the coffee was decent. Refrigerator and microwave […] in room. Fireplace and good sized bathroom. This is our new favorite place in Monstone Beach. Room 26! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great Place to get away"
Very nice place to stay. Service was great. Very nice ocean view, well worth the money. Will stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Will choose hotel again"
I would definitely choose the ocean front next time. We heard some noisy people across the street, but since the desk closes down at night, there was no one to contact except 911. (Of course we would not call 911 do not call unless there is a true emergency.) Got very little sleep as a result. Suggest the hotel have a phone in contact for annoyances […] that are not emergencies. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Peace at last"
The Little Sur Inn was more than we expected. It was quaint, close to town but seemed far away, directly across the street from the ocean and the walkway along Moonstone Beach. It felt private, very comfortable, and the staff treated us well. We definitely want to come back here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very nice place to stay and right across from the beach. the only thing that was not great was the showers, with low flow heads and water pressure it was hard to get clean.Other than that we enjoyed our stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"right across from beach"
Extremely comfortable bed. The view was exceptional. Hotel was right across the street from a surfing beach. Wooden walking trail next to beach was terrific. Ocean view from room and patio. Really exceptional stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Super Close to the Ocean, Great price !!"
I was really pleased with this hotel. It was close to downtown, close to Hearst Castle and even closer to the ocean. My fiancee and I literally crossed the street and were on the wooden path on the beach. Loved it!!! My fiancee was in love with how close it was and the scenery. And we are from the Monterey area so ocean front property is not a big deal […] to us, but the price for this was was a HUGE deal !! I recommend. ! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"cozy and perfect"
The oceanfront room is really spacious. Our view of the beach was lovely from the deck chairs on our patio or from inside. The fireplace kept it cozy and and the jetted tub was divine. Also, I usually don't enjoy a continental breakfast but theirs was really nice. Great all around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My boyfriend and I stay in Cambria often, and always enjoy our time in the quaint little town. The staff here was very sweet and accommodating and the bed was comfy and had a great fireplace in the room. Will definitely stay here again! Thanks!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
like the location and the cleanliness...only the bed is not very comfortable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had a great experience at the Little Sur Inn. It was our first time visiting the area so we were not sure what to expect. We reserved the second floor, ocean view room and the view is spectacular (especially the sunset!). The room was very clean and spacious. We stayed for one night so we didn't need much but had we been staying longer the small […] fridge in the room is nice. The bathroom was spacious and very clean. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a nice getaway in a great location near the ocean and also near great places to eat and visit. The only critical feedback I would give is that the rooms do have a bit of a strange smell when you walk in, but I attribute that to the dampness of the ocean air since the room is so close to the beach. I thought maybe the hotel could place an air freshener in the rooms so that they smell really nice when the guests walk in but then I realized that some guests might be allergic or not like the fragrant scent of air fresheners. The smell was not bad and it's nothing that made us upset, we opened the balcony doors and the bedroom door to air get the fresh air in the room. Once you open the beach front windows you get the fresh ocean air which is great! I would definitely return to the Little Sur Inn!!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Weekend of Wine tasting and fun"
Little Sur Inn was a great location for a long weekend at the beach, Hearst Castle and wine tasting. Staff were pleasant. Accomodations were nice. Breakfast and afternoon appetizers were a nice touch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"This is a very charming hotel"
We love this hotel and can't wait to get back.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Realize that you'll have a narrow ocean view from any room ...exception is the front ocean facing rooms. The hotel is two stories...first story (on parking side) gives you a excellent view at tire height (satire)...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Little Sur Inn is wonderful!"
Great service, yummy continental breakfast and afternoon snack. Clean, comfortable room with a gas fireplace. Unobstructed view of the beach across the street, and listened to the waves roll in all night long -- so zen. I only wish we could have stayed longer, and will definitely do so in the future.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"One of the best on Moonstone Beach"
This hotel is next to the Sea Chest restaurant which is very convenient, and also allows ocean views from nearly every room thanks to the design of the bay windows along the north side. Good size rooms with newer decor and included continental breakfast provide a great vacation spot.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Little Sur Inn, a pleasant surprise"
I booked this motel because my favorite Cambria motel was full. I had modest expectations because Little Sur was one of the more reasonably priced motels on Moonstone Beach Drive. We were pleasantly surprised by a very large, quiet room with an ocean view, comfortable bed, deluxe linens, gas fireplace and tasteful furnishings. The desk staff were friendly […] and helpful. We ate our free breakfast outside on the lovely garden deck. It's hard to find anything to criticize. The TV was large but an older tube model not a flat screen and there is no pool or hot tub. Access to the boardwalk and beach is right across the street. We would not hesitate to stay here again. I guess Little Sur is our new favorite motel in Cambria.

"Little Sur-one of many on the beach"
overall a decent place to spend a night; not really for an extended stay. Generally clean, but no real amenities-minimal view,no hot tub,tiny outdoor common place-patio, no firepit,unimaginative breakfast, more expensive than many on the same street.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Little Sur In-Everything We Expected"
We would definately recommend this hotel. It lived up to the hotel website description and the reviews. We WILL stay here again. Very quite, clean and enjoyable.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I loved it. The room was so cozy. I had my window open and could enjoy hearing the ocean. Thank you! The breakfast on the porch was great too.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Little Sur Inn"
Don't deal w/ Denise at the front desk. This lady was the most negative woman we have ever had to deal with during our many stays at hotels! She was not fun! The other woman was much more polite and helpful. There was left over food in the microwave oven which actually looked pretty good. However, Denise said, " That was a matter of opinion".Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"The Little Sur Inn"
The Little Sur Inn was a very pretty and well-maintained Inn. The room was very clean, cozy and spacious. Loved the fireplace which was also the room's heater. It was a "partial ocean view" room, but the view of the water was still very good from our window. The beach was a short walk across the street from the Inn. I would advise sneakers for a walk […] on the beach rather than sandals, because the beach is very pebbly. The front desk had new release movies available for rent - complimentary. Both breakfast and the afternoon hors d'œuvres were very good, and more than we expected. It was very close to town and about 10 minutes from Hearst Castle...convenient location. My only complaint about the Inn is that the bed was a bit stiff for my taste and I woke up with a sore back. Other than that, this was a great little place, in a beautiful location, and a good value.

"A lovely location and a wonderful hotel."
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Little Sur Inn. Everything was as advertised. We really enjoy our walks on the boardwalk along the ocean - and it's right across the street. Would recommend this hotel to anyone who is traveling in the area. The Sea Chest is right next-door. Great food (but cash only). Be sure to visit the exotic plants garden just […] on the other side of the highway from the north end of Moonstone Drive - it's amazing, especially when you walk down through the back part of the garden.

Updated, clean and very comfortable. Gas fireplace in every room. Good continental breakfast and delightful cheese and fruit in the afternoon. Great restaurant next door that opens at 5:30 a.m.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Little Hotel"
A 1 night stop over while driving the coast road from San Francisco to LA. 3 adults very comfortable in the large clean room – breakfast good but limited choice. Great location with the beach just over the road with benches to watch the sunset.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
