We stayed at the Morgan on a day trip to Hearst castle, we arrived early our room wasn't ready, but the friendly lady at the desk did all our paperwork so all we would have to do is pick up our room key..which was actually a key! She offered us coffee and gave us a lot of information about the... More

Staff was very helpful. Pool was nice and clean. Breakfast was OK, could be better. The hotel is just south, by one mile, to Hearst Castle and is about 30 minutes to some very nice wineries. We love the location!

There was nothing really wrong with the Morgan. It was certainly clean enough, the staff were helpful and is was a great location (literally next to Highway 1) and a short walk to the sea. In general the hotel was dated. We stayed in the block to the north of the main hotel (the Mexican restaurant was between us and... More

My husband and I stayed at The Morgan for two nights in April of this year. We wanted a base from which to visit Hearst Castle the following day. The first room we were given looked out to the motorway, but we asked for a room with a sea view and the management were happy to accommodate our wishes. The... More

We spend one night at this hotel, and it was not a comfortable one. It was no air conditioning and it was warm at night. The internett speed was so bad. The breakfast was the worst. It was just a lot of crapy food, like cakes and muffins. I eat a out meal witch was the only healthy option for... More

My cousin and myself stayed here on our roadtrip down California's coast. We had a long...but amazing driving day! San Simeon was our stop for the night before driving along the coast. The hotel was clean and lovely. The staff were sooo nice! The room was confortable and had a beautiful view of the sea. You can easily walk to... More

Two nights in this hotel were ENOUGH!! After 10 pm it was really noisy. You can hear everything there, people laughing, talking very loud and nobody at the hotel did anything about it. If you are expecting to have a nice view of Big Sur beach... forget it... no view more than the parking lot! And to make it worse,... More

We stayed for one night on our way up to San Francisco from LA. The rooms were spacious and clean and only a few minutes walk from the beach. The hotel is on a motel strip so it's a place to stay the night, not to visit as such. Breakfast was fine, not amazing, but it's complimentary and a nice... More

No air conditioning, poor wifi, no public space to enjoy ocean views. I would never recommend it. Although the staff was nice, we were very underwhelmed. Our room faced highway 1, overlooking the roof. Yuck.

Every July our family has a big reunion in San Simeon. Most of us stay at the Morgan. They staff there is always helpful and attentive-especially Angie and Justin. The hotel is always in great shape. Lobby and rooms are nice and inviting. The pool is small but clean and it still fun to hang out in. This hotel is... More
