Found this place via Living Social deal. Have to say it was a Great deal! -They sent me an email to see if I had any "special requests" -They were very accommodating. -The hotel was nice and clean ( a few areas could be "spruced up" and updated. ie: bathroom walls etc had poor patch working done. and there had...

There is nothing in San Simeon, once you've seen the Hearst Castle. I would NOT book a hotel room there, but go to Cambria (6 miles away) or down to Morro Bay for a great selection of rooms and restaurants.

We had stayed in this hotel just for one night on our way south and because it is close to Hearst castle. It is three star place with very dated furniture and poor selection for breakfast. Personnel are nice.

As some of the other reviewers have said, the website is deceiving. For a "senior rate" of $197 in January, I thought I was splurging for a spa-like setting. Instead, I got a glorified motel. (There's a pleasant-looking Motel 6 across the road.) Ocean views were touted. Instead, I saw mostly trees through dirty windows. When I pointed out that... More

Basically all of the San Simeon hotels are located in a "ghetto" south of town. From the outside, all look pretty generic and utilitarian. I don't know about the others, but the Morgan seems to have been recently spruced up and modernized: new fixtures, beds, remodeled bathrooms, etc., putting it a notch above your typical roadside hotel. The check-in was... More

I love central CA, especially Big Sur. I have found this place to be an easy distance from Big Sur, only an hour at most, and reasonably priced. The hotel is clean and comfortable. The staff is friendly and helpful. It's not luxury but it's not ghetto. For the price and the location, it's an excellent value. No room really... More

What's with the fans in the hallway? We've stayed twice and both times the fans were running 24 hrs . Also a problem with the toilets. Water level is too high and splashes on you. Also needs an elevator. Otherwise it was OK but nothing to write home about.

Not at all what I expected, and was so disappointed when I checked into what they call their "Oceanside Junior Suite." with a partial ocean view. Don't be fooled, the pictures on their website offer a very different feel from what you really get when you stay here. As for the partial ocean view that we paid for, well there... More

We had a great stay, and appreciate that the hotel staff made our visit so wonderful. We stayed in the main part of the hotel, and the renovations were beautiful and upscale. My mother and I were on a special mother/daughter trip through CA, and everything was perfect with our stay. We appreciate the great service from all of the... More

We booked this stay through Groupon Getaways. It was a great stay. Nice size room. Our room was the deluxe King with fireplace. Which was a great way to warm up the room in the mornings. The continental breakfast was nice way to start everyday. We loved that we were close enough to Cambria to enjoy the shops and evening... More
