Castle Inn in Cambria is ideal for families or friends looking for budget-friendly accommodations on Moonstone Beach. The perfect location to enjoy Moonstone Beach sunsets and fun activities either poolside or seaside is at our fun and friendly inn.

Castle Inn was one of the original motels built along the Cambria coast when cattle still roamed on Moonstone Beach Drive. We recently renovated and refreshed Castle Inn and we are proud to offer a great option for families and one of the best values along Moonstone Beach. The rooms at Castle Inn are simple but more than adequate to provide a wonderful stay at one of the best geographical locations on Moonstone Beach Drive. We’re also conveniently located just 10 minutes from San Simeon and Hearst Castle. All our the guest rooms offer some views of the ocean, but the upstairs rooms provide an excellent vantage point to watch the daily sunsets. Our front lawn has comfortable seating areas for ocean viewing, people-watching, or a rousing game of bean bag toss. Walk along the beach and discover the amazing tide pools teeming with sea life, enjoy gorgeous vistas from the Leffingwell Landing Park, or take a stroll on the boardwalk.
