Could have sworn that I was told at the front desk when I checked in that breakfast was free but when my husband went to check they wanted something like $8.00 for it! How do I confuse free for $8.00? Other than that place was great.

Stayed one night, had two queen beds, very comfortable for 4 adults. Rooms are large and clean. Very easy drive to The San Simeon Hotel, where we ate at their onsite restaurant, good food and good prices.

Very clean and pleasant. We could see and hear the ocean from our room, bed was pristine and comfortable as were the bathroom and towels. I walked barefoot over the carpet/bathroom and feet stayed clean ( as in: no black undersides ) this is a great indicator of attentiveness on the hotel's part and we've stayed in more pricey places...

This is an older establishment, but comfortable for a one night stay. The water pressure in shower is an issue though. We had a trickle when another room was either showering or flushed toilet. I would expect to pay less, but nonetheless the hotel had no vacancies. Easy walk to beach. View of beach is blocked a bit; beach not... More

The room is large and clean, we stayed on the second floor and had an ocean view. Comfortable bed. The pool is small but ok. Breakfast buffet was fine, nothing special, but you can make your own waffles. Good for one night.

The hotel doesn't look like much from the outside, so our room was a pleasant surprise - clean, modern, and comfortable. Service wasn't bad, but wasn't spectacular. There were a few vending machines on the property, and a few restaurants within walking along the strip. We were only staying for one night and didn't need any frills, so it was... More

Our first stop driving up the PCH . . . stayed in San Simeon because we visited the Hearst Castle late in the afternoon. Room was clean & quiet. Two beds, one was King and the other a Queen . . . so all 5 of us squeezed in. Towels were very small. Breakfast was adequate. Wish they would have... More

I stayed one night here with my mother ahead of visiting the Hearst Castle in San Simeon. Our logic was to stay as close to the castle as possible, so we wouldn't be backtracking while driving south from San Francisco. Little did we know a thriving little tourist town was just another six miles down the road in Cambria! Do... More

The rating on this hotel is too high (3.7 at the time of this review). The outside is unappealing and while the interior is better than it's cover, it's far from impressive. No air conditioning and breakfast is minimal. Decent place to stop in between destinations, but for sleep only. I'm not sure if there's anything better in the immediate... More
