I reserved two rooms, our room was fine but the other room for my in-laws was a little sub bar. Their room was missing the screens on the windows and since there isn't any A/C you can open the windows because the bugs with come in by the boat load. Their room happened to stay hot and muggy all weekend... More

We chose this hotel to be near Hearst Castle and the Elephant Seal Rookery. While it seems to from a design of many years ago the rooms were good and the staff was very helpful. They were adding tile out front and working on the parking lot indicating to me that they care about their hotel. Chose a second floor... More

We stayed here because it is convenient to Hearst Castle. The grounds seem to be in the process of landscaping improvements. Our first night was reasonably priced, but when we decided to spend an additional night, the price went up quite a bit. Our room was clean, the bed comfortable. The space was very adequate, the shower was fine. We... More

Beautiful quiet location near ocean. Short walk to a great beach. Quiet room with a nice breakfast. Very friendly staff. Good bed, room had a nice view to the ocean, all rooms have this view. We like smaller motels and this one was just that.

The motel was good value for the price. We were staying one night on our way down the PCH. There was nothing exceptional about the room, and it could have been cleaner - but it was fine for sleeping. It was a fair price for what you get - and there is little to choose from in San Simeon.

The staff was friendly. I like their breakfast,it's very rich. Our room was very clean and night was quiet.I think it's an ideal place to rest. All is good......Our stay very pleasant. If once again to travel there, I would still choose this hotel, because it gave me a good impression.

You don't have a lot to choose from in San Simeon, so for the money, the Sea Breeze is adequate! Pro's include that it is on the ocean side of the HWY, & a short walk to a nice walking trail above the beach. The beds were comfortable with nice sheets & a comforter. Cons include tacky, dingy, small &... More

We stayed here for one night on Valentine's Day/President's Day weekend. We booked late (a couple of weeks before, at most) and I saw that the room prices were bumped up considerably, but it *was* a holiday weekend. The room was very clean, and the bed was comfortable. We had no complaints. Free breakfast in the morning consisted of hard-boiled... More

This motel is pretty underwhelming, but for the location and the price, it works. It was comfortable and clean, and there are several restaurants close by. I'd probably stay here again if I return to the area.

We are from New Brunswick, Canada and stayed two nights at the Sea Breeze Inn during our visit to Hearst Castle in February 2015. Location is perfect and rooms are very nice for the price paid. We will definitely stay there again on our future drive down the HWY 1 along the Pacific coast.
