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

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

We was driving up CA 1, enjoying the drive and looking at various small towns along the way. We stopped at Hearst Castle for a visit. This motel was just down the road from Hearst Castle. We checked in and got a king size bed, large flat screen, new furniture, refrigartor, micro wave, and very nice bedding. Great Cable. Motel... More

I just visited Hearst Castle this weekend (9/12/2014) and stayed at the Sea Breeze Inn. There were some condos between the Inn and the beach but I still had a partial ocean view from my 2nd floor room. The Inn was very clean and my room had a queen and king bed, fridge & microwave. It was less than 10... More

My family stayed at the Sea Breeze for a visit to Hearst Castle. I am particularly appreciative of the staff who recovered my lost computer tablet and quickly mailed it to me in Ohio. The location of the Inn is convenient to the wonderful Hearst Castle where we had a memorable visit. I received my tablet in the mail today... More

We stayed here while traveling down the coast.We usually stay at the Best Western, but the prices were way too high. This motel is on the same side of the street and you can easily walk to the beach from here. They have a continental breakfast but the area is very small and the tables are outside.It is dangerous to... More

Wonderful place. Rooms clean and nice. Sufficient parking area. Near from Ocean, you can hear the ocean waves from the room :) We saw whales from the shore. Very quiet area. Only a few hotels/motels and shops. It is good choice for rest when you travel between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Breakfast poor. Coffee maker in the room.
