Older motel that is close to the highway but the bath was in front & the room to the rear so you did not hear any traffic noise. You could hear your neighbors a bit but nothing terrible to disturb your sleep. Ocean view was nice. Furniture & everything was clean & nice. Bathroom was good. The only thing was... More

Fine accommodations located close to Hearst Castle, Piedras Blancas Elephant Seal Rookery [note to nature lovers = don't miss this year round attraction], and Cambria [home of the highly recommended Medusa's Mexican Restaurant]. Spacious room [#119], comfortable bed [including pillows], clean, well stocked bathroom with plenty of hot water. Spent a quiet night here. Bonus = windows that open up... More

After reading the reviews and looking at the pictures I thought a quick night there wouldn't be an issue. I booked the room the same night while on the road. I was surprised on how small the breakfast area is in lobby. It looks much bigger in the pictures. The furniture in the room also looks nicer in the pictures... More

I would rate this 2 1/2. This hotel does not have much to offer in terms of amenities (no A/C and small pool) but the location is nice and our room was clean. Short walk to one beach, convenient to Hearst Castle and Cambria, which we really enjoyed.you can hear the ocean from your room (request 2nd floor) and if... More

Nothing to look at from the outside but this only adds to the surprise when you enter your room. Large,upgraded, clean,all required amenities and a sea view. Basic continental Breakfast but very good. Great for short stay to visit attractions in area or if just passing through. Very good value for price

We stayed here for its proximity to Hearst Castle and it proved to be very convenient. The beach is only a short walk away. A Mexican restaurant is located nearby. A short drive brings you to a pull-out where we observed numerous Elephant Seals - better than an aquarium.

Nice place in San Simeon, close to Hearst castle. Rooms looked recently remodeled, but it was a pretty basic hotel. Staff was kind. Breakfast was good but no real hot items except waffles. I was surprised on how there is really nothing in San Simeon except a few hotels. Not many restaurants or anything to do. We ended up driving... More

Not much to look at from the outside but this place was a very pleasant surprise on the inside. Our second floor room was spotless with beautiful views of the ocean. The room was large and had all the amenities we need for our one night stay. It is very close to the Hearst Castle and there were many restaurants... More

This hotel is conveniently located along the coastal route. We found the service to be friendly, the rooms were clean and spacious. We did not use the pool, but it also appeared to be nice and clean. Breakfast was also good. Can't go wrong with this hotel.

Do not judge your stay here by the dated exterior! The rooms are cute, clean, and roomy enough, with nice comfortable beds and fairly soft towels. They offer free wi-fi, parking, and a basic breakfast of fruit, cereal, juices, and waffles-- which you do have to eat outside on a patio. What more could you want for a reasonable rate?... More
