If you book in advance, definitely a deal. Comfortable beds, decent breakfast bar. Only real complaint is pillows, if you're picky. Short walk to beach, Beautiful views. Would recommend for Hearst castle trip or stop on the way up the coast

We didn't have a reservation, we walked in and were offered a really food rate, $50ish fo the night in a king bed. There is no lift, we were on the second floor. There is no air con (which might be an issue in summer) but the room was huge, the bathroom was clean. It is definitely an older style... More

My family needed a budget friendly place to stay to visit Hearst Castle. We got a room on the second floor facing the beach. Although there are condos in front of the water looking out the window, you can still get a view. Also, it's a very short walk to the water from the motel. Rooms were a decent size... More

That's about it! - no view , slow wifi and a bit depressing grounds, and definitely don't even think about breakfast- absolutely yucky. If you pay $50 then I guess this is OK for a quick stop.I paid a lot more. It has a basic bathroom set up, nice firm bed and ridiculously big and dated headboard. If management put... More

I stayed here with my girlfriend while passing through San Simeon and it was a very nice stop for us. The hotel room was lovely, nice and clean and with free wi-fi and a good TV - we had absolutely no complaints. The staff member on duty when we checked in was very nice and recommended us a nice restaurant... More

Stayed at The Sea Breeze Inn while driving down the PCH and stopping to visit Hearst Castle. We had made the reservation mostly because it was the cheapest and the reviews said it was fine. We weren't planning on being in the room any more then to sleep, so clean was the main priority. When we pulled up, in the... More

Convenient location to the Hearst Castle. It was difficult to find a restaurant nearby while hungry and not inclined to wait 40minutes. the breakfast was very generous and free it included , coffee, tea, muffins, waffles, juices and weather permitting outside seating .

Loved this little hotel! Clean, newly remodeled. We travel with our two boys and the room with one king and one queen bed was perfect. It was over $200 a night but we could all stay in one room which made it cheaper than another hotel. We could see a little bit of the ocean from our room (it looks... More

I had reserved a second floor room with ocean view, on a Saturday night; yes, there's a group of condos on the way to the water, but my room had some views of water, and certainly got the sounds of the breakers at night. There was no noise from Route 1/Cabrillo Highway at all. The room was recently renovated with... More
