3.0 Mediocre
Pros: Feb 2020. Waitress,coffee,food at the cavalier restaurant. The use of the common area where the fire pits and chairs are. The only good restaurants around was the Cavaliers,in Cambria was the pizza & burger place at the end of town.forgot name. Mezzos Italian. We went into Pasa robles to get a few things at Wal-Mart and googled what restaurants stay open till at least 10-11pm cause it was 7:35pm and it would take about 35-40 min to get back to Cambria to eat dinner.it showed that this pub steakhouse was open till 11pm and mezzo Italian till 1pm and all other places closed at 9 or 9:30. Got into Cambria at 8:55. Everything was closed except linns and they were closing up. The pub steakhouse green colored 2 story looking house was closed suppose to be open till 11. The town closes at 9pm. Went to mezzo. It was small. You take menu by door then go to counter order and pay then seat your self. Has a table with 4 chairs,3 tables with 2 chairs a pub table with 2 chairs ,bar with 8 chairs. Weird inside like your in a pot smoking grandmas house for dinner. But hungry,tired and said wtf. Ordered eggplant parmesan with noodles and 2 meatballs and bread and chocolate chip cookie and fudge cashew cookie Pepsi and ginger ale. The owner served us at our table. The food was AWESOME. Homemade bread AWESOME cookies AWESOME meatballs AWESOME. The owner was so nice after we finished dinner and she came to clear table we started talking. Great person so nice and was really an enjoyable night at her place. Will go there Every time we are in Cambria area. Fishing off San Semion pier for 2 days was great no fish except a small halibut had to throw back but great weather. So bottom line only hotel cavalier hotel and restaurant, mezzo Italian,pier
Cons: Stayed Feb 2020. Got to hotel to check in at front desk and door locked with a note saying went north for the winter and to go check in at the front desk of the cavalier hotel next door. Found out that the cavalier hotel owes the sands by the sea. Room smelled like old dirty clothes or a dirty wet mop. A/C - Heater not work. Thermostats on Wall and A/C Heater unit on floor in front of window was filthy. Fan worked on ceiling. Toilet was so low it came 2 inches below my knees. I'm 5'6. Felt like I was in kindergarten bathroom using the toilets that are special low for little kids. Slipped and fell in tub cause there was no bath mat. Hurt my back and right knee. Had to use a towel on bottom of tub to finish shower. And bathroom floor tiles were so slippery when you were barefoot even when your not wet from bath or shower. Put towels on floor when barefoot so we wouldn't slip. Towels were rough feeling. My pillows were the size of a regular pillow cut in half. My husband had the same except he had one regular size pillow out if 3 pillows on each bed. TV ok got lots of channels. Reserved room with 2 queen beds and a oceanview. Was suppose to be upstairs room 246 but asked for downstairs got room 147. If room above us one door over was oceanview it had to look over the roofs and in between the buildings behind the hotel. The only ocean view rooms would be at the cavalier next store. This hotel has no ocean view rooms unless you call looking between buildings or over roofs and seeing a clipse of ocean an ocean view room. Bed was ok and comfy could be better but did the job. Breakfast included at restaurant cavalier next store was included. Continental breakfast. It is a $4.00 voucher for toast, or English muffin and orange juice, coffee.
