Clean and spacious room. Easy walk to beach and short drive to Hearst Castle. Met our needs as a fairly budget conscious family of four. Located at the start of the impressive coastal drive up to Monterey and not a whole lot to do in San Simeon itself, but didn't worry us as a stopover night.

This was an inexpensive stay of 2 nights for us. The second floor (walk up) have ocean views. There are condo dwellings between you and the ocean, however 1/2 the view out our large window was ocean. And it is a two minute walk to the bluff above the water. If you are steady afoot you can get down to... More

We stayed one night at Sea Breeze Inn during our coastal road trip from LA to SF. I wish I could stay in the town of Cambria instead as San Simeon really has nothing much to offer. However, in terms of the Inn, it's in decent shape offering a clean and comfortable room. We got the sea view room upstairs... More

Hubby and I stayed here for one night, wish we could of stayed longer as it is such a friendly place with numerous eating options both the grill pub and the Mexican were super good. Room was spacious with ocean views and bed extra comfy. Staff were ever so nice. Make sure you see the sea lions, beautiful scenery.

We stayed one night in this clean and comfortable motel which has large rooms. There are plenty of restaurants within walking distance, and it is very near Hearst Castle, and the sea lion beach. Breakfast was the usual muffins ,toast, cereal,waffles fruit etc, plentiful and good quality. An upstairs room would have better sea view if you are staying longer.

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.
