This is a lovely hotel close to Hearst Castle. The room was fine and the breakfast was very nice. We dined at the Mexican restaurant nearby for dinner. It all worked out well and I would stay here again, if I was driving along the beautiful California coast!

We had one of the nicest rooms we've ever had in a hotel here at the Morgan. When we checked in we were upgraded to a room with a fireplace! We woke to a rainy day, they said the first rain they'd seen in almost a year!!! Good for them, good for us we had a fireplace! The room was... More

Stayed here again after staying on a previous visit when we loved it. Found it a little more tired looking than I remember . Stayed in an outside wing. Room was adequate. Breakfast okay. Disappointed. Felt like I had stayed somewhere special the first visit but didn't get the same vibe this time around.

Spent just one night of a recent road trip along the California coast, and visited the famous Hearst Castle. The ground floor room was very comfortable and not too crowded. The Continental breakfast was very nice, and provided lots of options. We had dinner at the Mexican Restaurant next door, and we enjoyed the service and the food. A short... More

Pros: location and comfortable rooms -The Morgan hotel is very close to Pacific Ocean. Five minute drive to the Hearst Castle. -The rooms were clean and spacious. Beds were very comfortable. -Free Wifi and Free (and good) breakfast Cons: -OLD, still use key to access the building and hotel room... In short, I would recommend it with a five-star

Nice clean hotel, comfortable room, no a/c but cool when we stayed and an hear the ocean when windows are open, not much around in San Simeon but other old school hotels, limited restaurants, very close to Hearst Castle and Sea Lion rookery. If you want to be able to see ocean this is not the place. Standard continental style... More

The hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. It's a great location to visit the Hearst Castle. The hotel is named after Julia Morgan, who was the architect of the Hearst Castle. Also close to see the Elephant Seals. Located on the coast. Has a swimming pool. The rooms are roomy and comfortable. Breakfast is available. There is not a... More

We stayed at this hotel because we were visiting Hearst Castle the next day. It is about a 7 minute drive to the castle and so the location is great. The hotel itself provides a good place to sleep but not much else. The hotel does not have air conditioning and our room did not have good ventilation. During a... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments about your recent stay. We are actually one of the closest hotels to Heart Castle. Our hotel experiences beautiful weather all year round, but we observed a prolonged summer with higher temperatures this past year. Our Wi-Fi connectivity has also been updated. I hope you will keep us in mind... More

This is a fine hotel. For the area is very comparable and there's nothing wrong with the actual hotel. The location of this hotel (and most others actually) is directly on the main road so it makes for a noisy stay. But as I said, most other hotels that I could see are all on the same drag which would... More

We happened to be here on one of the warmer days of the summer/fall. There is no air conditioning in the rooms, however there are screens on the windows, so you are able to open those and get some fresh air. There is also a fan in the room. Thank goodness! hehe. The beds were comfortable, free wifi, and the... More

I’m glad you had the opportunity to meet our mascot, Chloe. She is loved by all of our guests. I’m sorry you did not find our breakfast as appetizing as you imagined. All of our pastries are actually delivered fresh every morning from a local bakery. Our hotel is fortunate enough to experience beautiful weather for a majority of the... More
