Nice & large rooms. Amazing breakfast. The Lobby & dining room are not in the same building as guest rooms. You should go there by walk few minutes. Good place to stay on your way from 17 miles highway to LA.

I booked the Morgan for one night because of its proximity to Hearst Castle. While I agree that it doeIsn't look as luxurious as the pictures on their website, we had no issues at all. The check in was fast and the staff were very courteous and professional. Our room was quite spacious and clean. The bed was comfortable and... More

My husband and I just returned from a trip to San Simeon, CA to explore Hearst Castle. And we loved our 3 night stay at the Morgan Hotel which was located just a few miles from the Castle. Although it was not a new hotel, staff members at the front desk were gracious and helpful, and the lobby was very... More

Had booked this hotel as part of a big trip so were grateful for two days in one place. Not as it appeared on the website. However, the rooms were clean and spacious. We were in a separate building which was a shame. Breakfast a simple affair but included, continental which keeps you going. Reasonable price for a simple place... More

Thank you for sharing your comments on your recent stay at The Morgan. I apologize if our website gave a different impression of the hotel. I believe that you stayed in our North Wing; our 55 rooms are located in 2 buildings. Our North wing tends to be more private and quiet and our premium rooms offer lovely views to... More

I was really surprised by the good reviews of other guests which along with the pictures on the Expedia site made me choose this hotel. However it was disappointing to get there and realize that The Morgan was not what the pictures on the hotel 's site represent . The sink and toilet were old, the cabinets dated. The hotel... More

Thank you for taking the time to post a review of The Morgan. I am so sorry that we were unable to live up to the expectations you had for your visit. It sounds like you stayed in our North Wing. Many of our guests prefer these rooms as it is generally more private and quiet than our South Wing... More

There is no reason to stay in San Simeon and there is definitely no reason to stay at the Morgan Hotel. On the contrary - the name suggests way more than the hotel could ever live up to. So unless you would like to visit Hearst Castle and absolutely need a place close by to spend the night, I suggest... More

Got this hotel as a result of a "Priceline" search. I was skeptical as the price was low ($163 / night) and it was after all, in San Simeon, CA - not a very big place and its, San Simeon's, claim to fame is that it is across the highway from Hearst Castle. What a pleasant surprise! The desk clerk... More

The Morgan is a wonderful little hotel very close to The Castle. Typically, it is a stop-over for me from San Diego to Big Sur. It's just in the right location for that journey and not too far from Cambria to grab groceries before heading up the coast. It isn't very updated, but I feel it has a certain charm... More

Our room was in the main building and perfect for our one-night stopover on Highway 1. This route is somewhat remote so the options are minimal. We booked rather far in advance and found a price less than $180 per night (with AAA discount). I feel this price is a little high for the room but realize that limited options... More

We had high expectations considering the website. It portraits it more beautiful than it is. This hotel is NOT beachfront. What they call ocean view is actually a far view. It's an old hotel, no elevator, no A/C. Breakfast is included, but not that great. There is no staff organizing it, so you are on your own to get a... More
