Blue Dolphin Inn, Cambria
Amazing Valentines Weekend.
From the second we arrived we felt like we were at home. Jill was so welcoming, fast check in, she walks you to your room and shows you how everything works. The breakfast in bed concept is awesome, you choose from a gourmet menu and they bring to you. Awesome Keurig coffee in the room and beautiful amenities. The jacuzzi tub was a bonus. Towels and sheets top quality. We had a room on the front ocean side, it was dreamy listening to the waves all night. Cannot wait to return to this charming property.

Blue Dolphin Inn Stay
We really felt welcomed when we checked in, even being escorted to our room. It was quiet and comfortable. Breakfast from a menu was delivered to our room at the time requested. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. We would definitely stay there again.

Hot daddy needs a new pair of glasses.
Quick in & out. The 1 thing they don’t have is central AC. I woke up parched and warm and didn’t realize there was a floor standing fan in the room. Not their fault I didn’t see it.

Disappointing Cambria Weekend Stay
We booked weeks in advance for a romantic weekend away. When we arrived, another couple had been moved out of our room because they complained about it and we were told itwas the only one left. It was cramped. Had old carpeting, was stuffy and a small bathroom with little space for our own belongings. It was located directly behind the lobby and its only window overlooked the parking lot. All in all, disappointing as a romantic getaway. We won't be going back. I feel certain that despite paying $200 per night, being given the worst room in the place was because we booked through

Relaxing in Cambria
We had a wonderful time. A little Smokey the first day from the southern fires but it cleared up the next two days. Had an issue with a little one running around upstairs making way too much noise through the floor the first night and morning but after we talked to the concierge the next two days were much better. Our room was the Biscayne which is on the bottom floor with a nice semi private patio, a nice sitting area with beautiful views of the white water and sunsets. The room got hot at night and unfortunately the side windows do not open and the sliding door was either open and unlocked or closed/locked, it would be great if there was a door stop that could be installed to allow the door to stay a little open so you could have a cool ocean breeze and the sound of the waves.
