Blue Dolphin Inn, Cambria
Great location and friendly staff. The room we stayed in had a nice outdoor patio area where we were able to sit and relax and enjoy the view of the ocean. The room was clean and perfect amount of space for two people. Downtown Cambria was not too far away, a quick drive into town with lots of restaurant options.

Very nice room with many nice personal touches. Excellent clean place to rest a night or spend several days by the ocean while driving the PCH1. Restaurants within wslking distance.

Beware of Room 100 if you're a couple. This tiny, cramped room should only be booked for a single person. There is literally no space to place any "grooming" essentials. There is one little mirror over the tiny sink for shaving or combing hair or applying makeup, if that's part of your regimen. The closet doors have a full length mirror but again, no place for grooming essentials (unless you want to put everything on the floor) and extra dim lighting. No space for luggage unless you want to place it on the fireplace ledge (no luggage rack was provided, probably because there's no room for one). This hotel does not have a dining room and brings your breakfast to your room in a paper bag at the time you choose. The menu is considerably better than food I've had at any other hotel. Exceptional menu for a hotel breakfast. There is no business center if your choice is to print your boarding pass. Cell phones worked only outside (for both my husband's phone and mine - and we have different carriers). Staff is quite friendly, however, I don't choose a hotel in order to make friends with staff. My priority is a comfortable room, and this room is at the bottom of the list for that category.
