Great location and good price if you book approximately two months in advance Really close proximity to Moonstone Beach and Seal Beach and beautiful picnic sites along the way. Enjoyed the bathtub and the shower, perfect for one person if you're willing to take turns. Bought some nice olive oil and mixed it in with warm water and it felt... More

We stayed here a couple of nights in late September and were disappointed in our stay. We stayed in the second building away from the main building and the first surprise was that there was no air conditioning. The room was stuffy upon entry and the curtains were broken and had to be wrestled with to get open to let... More

Dear Bukeroos, Thank you for your review. It is always greatly appreciated when guests take the time to share their experience. Many guests prefer our North Building as is tends to be quieter and more private, it does not appear that was the case during your visit and I apologize. Like most of the hotels along the coast we do... More

Unlike many of the motels in the San Simeon and Cambria area, this one actuaIIy has a nice sized common area for relaxing and breakfast. Plus the rooms more than adequate size wise and nicely appointed. The staff has always been accommodating and knowledgeable. As an added benefit you can buy wine by the glass or bottle from the front... More

There is not much to choose from in San Simeon. When we were there a group of antique car enthusiasts were doing their annual get together. If one wants to stay close to Hearst Castle, probably this is the place to be. You are also close to the town of Cambria. Breakfast was adequate and service was good. Though hotel... More

Dear Yori O, We are indeed a very small town on the coast, so there are not too many options for lodging in San Simeon. I agree if you are in San Simeon, The Morgan is the place to be! I hope you enjoyed the 1940 Ford group that was here, they certainly had some wonderful trucks and cars that... More

Lovely welcome to a warm old lady of a hotel. The rooms were huge with sofas and fire places. Big comfortable beds, sea views and a reminder of yesteryear. Great location for Hearst Castle an San Simeon. For a road side pit stop you could not beat it and a pool to swim in what's not to love!

We stayed here during our visit to Cambria. We arrived early and were told our room wasn't ready yet but since we were early they upgraded us to a corner suite...it was amazing & beautiful! We had a fire place and HUGE bath tub. The staff was really friendly. We asked for dinner reccomendations and they provided several places with... More

I would not describe this as a boutique hotel it's a motel on a roadside. San Simeon does not have much to offer but we used it as a stop off from the drive from Monterey to Santa Barbara. The room was adequately furnished, certainly not the best we have stayed in. In UK standards I would say this was... More

Dear LasVegasGirlLeeds, Thank you for sharing your review of your recent visit to The Morgan. We are indeed a wonderful halfway stop between Monterey and Santa Barbara. I am sorry that the temperature was warm during your stay. It is nice to be on the coat where opening the windows cools our rooms considerably. We do have security locks on... More

We stayed here enroute between San Francisco and LA, but now that we are familiar with it we would make a trip especially to stay here. Very pleasant, clean, and well run in an excellent location. Quiet, very large bright rooms, whirlpool tubs, and a nice Mexican restaurant next door.

Enjoyed two nights here to break up the trip down California 1. The hotel is clean and tidy. Breakfast was good and we upgraded to a bigger room with a ocean view. Was nice to have some space. San Simeon is tiny but has plenty to see and do. Didnt get to use the pool but looked great. Plenty of... More

2nd stay at this hotel. My kids love it (great jumping beds, fireplace, pool, hot coco). It's clean, near to the beach, people are nice. I wish it had a gym but running on the ocean makes up for it and I travel with weights. If you go, check out all the butterfly moths out front. First time I saw... More
