Clean, comfortable and well priced rooms are what will keep people coming to the Sea Breeze Inn. Rooms were well appointed and quite spacious for this level of motel. Breakfast was the typical muffins/waffles/cereal combo and rooms had a microwave, allowing you to make tea in addition to the supplies coffee. Location is very convenient for a visit to Hearst...

This Inn is very deceptive from the road but we had an upstairs room which had lovely views of the sea. The room was large and very comfortable . It was spotless and very reasonably priced . This is a great spot to stay if you are visiting Hearst Castle. Breakfast is served by reception and although there was outside... More

Spent the weekend at this small Inn and found it to be great. It's nothing fancy, but it's got a lot of good going for it. It's in a great location for exploring Hearst Castle, Cambria and the beach. We had an upstairs room with a pretty good view and roomy with a king and a queen bed. It was... More

The Sea Breeze Inn was pleasant and we got a room with an ocean view. It is a very small town and there are not alot of options for sleeping and dining. It was clean and the bed was very comfortable and the room was a good size. We paid $54 for the night so it was a good deal... More

My husband and I have stayed at Sea Breeze Inn many times. Each room faces the ocean and it's quiet enough at night to have your window open. Waking up to the sounds from the sea (not traffic and loud noises) is indescribable. The staff is friendly, the rooms are clean, the prices are fantastic, and the beds are comfy.

Good location, breakfast too basic, no fruit, juice suspect, no peanut butter, no yogurt. Most hotels that advertise breakfast are now offering much better quality. Nice to hear the ocean while sleeping.

It is in a small town beside the sea. The receptionist told us where we could go for dinner and remind us the close time of the restaurant. It was quiet in the night. We left in the morning, just put the room card in a little box, it is convenient.

Nice motel, very clean and spacious rooms, feels close to highway 1, but very little traffic on highway 1 after dark, excellent wifi, no issues at all with that, very simple breakfast, cereals, waffle machine and breads, the morning I was there it was raining and nowhere to sit as only four or five seats in reception, the breakfast area...

We did the scenic Hwy 1 drive along the coast from Monterey and this was "the perfect" stop along the way. Just the right amount of time to enjoy the views, stop along the way and not feel rushed. This hotel was very clean and the management was friendly and accommodating. Updates were taking place as we were there, but... More

We stayed here after a day of driving south down Highway 1 from Monterey. In the morning we toured Hearst Castle and this hotel is close to Hearst castle. This is an older property, but has some nice updates. The room had wood laminate/tile floor and was clean. The bathroom was OK, but seemed older than the rest of the... More
