Well… The title of my review says it all as it truly is my home away from home. I'm a local artist and Cambria and I work about five days a week over here coming in from Hanford California. At first over a year ago, I was staying at a nearby spot. But, The San Simeon Lodge is way better... More

Read the reviews and expected something older and not the "Ritz". For the most part it was a quite litle motel/inn that meets most of the basic needs. Clean, cheap with good service, but there were some issues. Pros: On the central coast close to lots of great stuff. Cheap, $60 a night all in for the weekend. Nice and... More

The location was great. Price nice. I didn't expect anything fancy in the rooms, but a bed that didn't result in a backache would have been good. Even the teenagers with me woke up hurting. Staff was friendly. Restaurant on site was nice as there's not a lot near by. But I thought the food was okay, but expensive for... More

Stayed at the San Simeon Lodge for 2 nights and 3 days for a visit to Hearst Castle and other sites. The lodge is more economically prices than lodgings in Cambria, Morro Bay or even the Best Western across the street. The rooms are old but clean, however, walls are paper thin so you can hear people in rooms next... More

We stayed at the San Simeon Lodge for one night, on our way up the Pacific Coast Highway and before heading to Hearst Castle. The staff was respectful and helpful. The room was just fine and clean, and the experience was perfectly adequate. It is not a fancy place, but it is just fine for the setting and time frame.

Room was spacious, clean and quiet, the room had a partial ocean view, easy check-in/check-out process, reception does close at 9pm though. We drove down from Monterey and was looking forward to a good night's sleep!

I took a couple of days to explore the coast. Went to the Hearst Castle and wanted to stay someplace close. The San Simeon Lodged got my attention because of good reviews and a great price...that is a rare combination. The property is across from the ocean but with a nice view. I could have stayed on the ocean at... More
