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

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

When i booked this hotel - the reviews looked good and the pics on the website were appealing. My husband asked me why i chose this place. As other recent reviewers have indicated - rooms are not as pictured. We ended up in the seperate building - the walls are so thin, its like having a heard of elephants outside... More

Dear globugg, Thank you for taking the time to review your recent visit to The Morgan. From your description I believe that you were in our North Building, I apologize for noise during your stay; our North Building is usually the more quiet and private of both our buildings. I have asked our housekeeping team to inspect all the showers... 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

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
