The design captures the seaside ambience and picturesque qualities of Cambria, drawing inspiration from the ocean and in particular paying homage to the dolphin locations from around the world. Each of the six Specialty Rooms is named for a body of water from different locations in the world where dolphins are known to be prevalent and feature design elements that are appropriate to that area. The Blue Dolphin Inn is designed to appeal primarily to couples and small groups seeking an upscale, deluxe hotel experience in Cambria, CA.

The situation of the Inn on the property allows almost all rooms partial or full ocean views.

The General Manager, Tano Taitano, previous work experience at the Hyatt on the Isle of Kauai has brought the structure of the corporate hotel and incorporated the autonomy of an independent hotel. The commingling of the two ideologies has created a caring and knowledgeable staff that has a real interest in the guest experience.

We had planned to stay for two nights, but ended up extending our stay for another night because we didn't want to leave! Oh-- the breakfasts delivered right to your door were really delicious. Loved having the privacy of eating in our room, looking out at the ocean and having a leisurely coffee. The coffee machine in the room makes really great coffee, too. Can't forget the delicious afternoon cookies... Just writing this makes me want to go back and visit soon!”
