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.

We reserved a room with one king bed but got two beds, which made the room cramped. We travel with bicycles and had to climb over them to get to the window. The clock radio made an annoying static sound when the TV was on, so we had to unplug it. They didn't even supply a box of facial tissues... More

This was a very nice place, clean and most important close to Hearst Castle. It is a quiet hotel about 4 hours drive from LA. That's the reason we stayed in this area. We drove up one day and saw the Hearst the next day and then drove back to LA.The continental breakfast was typical of hotels and adequate for... More

We wanted to go to Hearst Castle, and honestly, the #1 and #2 hotels in San Simeon were sold out (as well as places in Cambria), so we opted for Sea Breeze Inn. Overall, it is a quiet, small hotel with free wifi, but hardly an ocean view and thin walls. The room was clean and comfortable, and the pool... More

This was the most expensive hotel we stayed in on our trip up the coast ($229/night with AAA discount), which also included Cambria and Carmel, where we always stayed between $150 - $190/night for much nicer accommodations and breakfast that we actually ate. There was dead grass outside our window, no ocean view, rust in the bathtub, extremely worn and... More

Stayed for two nights here and was not disappointed. Yes there is no air conditioner but one is not needed. We were on the second floor and had a nice view of the ocean. We could be on the beach in less then a 5 minute walk. The location is great. One day we drove north to Big Sur which... More
