On my last drive down CA Highway 1, I stayed at Castle Inn, a lovingly renovated 1950’s motel on Moonstone Beach Drive in Cambria.
The beds were comfortable and stylish, including some mid-century modern design elements. The hotel’s location is perfect, just steps away from Cambria’s stunning Moonstone Beach. It made it easy to get out for both sunrise and sunset walks on the beach. The front lawn also includes about a dozen cheery red Adirondack chairs that you can sit in to enjoy sunset with a glass of wine (get there early--they fill up fast!)
A small number of rooms are dog-friendly, so we decided to bring our pups along. When we checked in, we were pleased to find staff had left each of our dogs a plush dog bed fun red dog bowls.
It was the perfect location for a Central Coast beach getaway.
