Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we booked this motel for a visit to San Simeon. What everyone says is true: not much to look at on the outside, rooms far better than expected on the inside, and breakfast not really worth it. There is a new Motel 6 across the street that has a restaurant that serves a real meal.... More

Stayed one night san simeon before going to Hearst castle. The sea breeze does not look like much from the outside but inside the rooms are big and clean with effort made to keep them nice although furniture etc is showing signs of wear and tear. Continental breakfast included. Small area outside of reception to eat. Definitely nothing fancy or... More

On the outside this place looks like a very average motel, and staff at the reception behaved that way, but the rooms are much nicer than that of the average motel. We really enjoyed staying here. From our room you could see the ocean, which was worth the extra couple of dollars. It's a three-minute walk to the wonderful Moonstone... More

I loved this place. We arrived late at night. We checked into the room with no problem. The clerk was professional enough. It was comfortable, affordable and clean. I really loved the location. I will be back!

The cistern-sourced water tasted terrible. The desk clerk did not know if it was safe to drink. The bathtub is dangerously difficult to leave. The manager did not returnthe desk clerk's calls. As other writers note, best to skip the breakfast. An acctractive motel across the street offered a room for $20 per night less Aside from these problems, the... More

I generally travel solo and seek lodging that's clean, is conveniently located, has decent w-fi, and is well priced. Having a little juice and coffee in the morning is a plus. I booked one night at the Sea Breeze thinking I'd check around for my second night at San Simeon - but the Sea Breeze was so satisfactory that I... More

Spending time in the San Simeon area, based on others reviews, switched my original hotel to Sea Breeze. Have to tell you for less than 50.00 off season, this place rocks. Rooms done very nice, very comfortable, basic continental breakfast (but with waffles). As others mentioned, heard the ocean waves, had a partial ocean view. Came home and booked another... More

Room medium large and airy. Positive over all impression. Fridge, micro, hair dryer in room but no safe. Carpets spotlessly clean both in the room and on the walkways and stairs outside. Cleanest motel I have stayed in including some of the more expensive chain hotels. Furniture highly polished and dust free. Was most impressed by the cleanliness at Sea... More

We travelled across 7 states on a family holiday. At a few locations we stayed at expensive branded hotels and several mid-level hotels in cities. For San Simeon we chose a cheap option as it was 1 night as a stopover for the long drive. We were pleasantly surprised, large rooms, fridges, comfy beds, breakfast included, free WIFI (that worked)... More

We came in late just for a bed as we had to also leave early in the morning. The room was a bit cold, but mostly because of the open window. As we found out it was open and closed it, temperature was fine. Everything worked well, the Inn is right next to the beach and the road, so we... More
