Experience the natural beauty of Cambria.

What it's like

Castle Inn was one of the original motels built along the Cambria coast, way back when cattle still roamed Moonstone Beach Drive. Some things don't change, such as the breathtaking coastal views surrounding Castle Inn. But the Inn itself has been completely renovated to provide a great experience with the finest modern conveniences, including complimentary high-speed WiFi and electric vehicle charging stations. Spend the day exploring the nearby tide pools or just lounging around the heated pool for some family fun with ocean views. Seaside or poolside, you're bound to make amazing memories and new traditions.

Independent spirit

Let the sea set you free!

Small touches

Castle Inn is perfectly set up for soaking in the spectacular Pacific Ocean views, morning, noon, and night. Its large front lawn has Adirondack chairs positioned for admiring the natural landscape. Dip into the onsite heated pool for a refreshing swim before a game of cornhole. Sit around the welcoming fire pit in the evening and swap stories about the day with a stunning sunset as your backdrop. Then, retire to your room for some restful sleep before another day in this Pacific paradise.

Eat and drink

Kickstart your day with some complimentary morning pastries, fruit, and coffee in the lobby. Castle Inn is just minutes away from downtown Cambria and all the tasty culinary offerings there—so be sure to ask the helpful and friendly staff for recommendations! If you'd rather have a casual family meal without having to venture far, be sure to make use of Castle Inn's barbeque grills and picnic area.

And more

At Castle Inn, providing an incredible stay for the whole family is the top priority. That's why kids 16 years and younger stay completely free, making it the perfect place for a family trip to the Pacific Coast. But that's not all—Castle Inn also welcomes your four-legged companions! The Inn's dog-friendly accommodations offer food and water bowls for you to use, as well as pillow pet beds so your canine friend can be as comfortable as you (subject to room availability, pet fee applies).
