It was the perfect location for our Hearst Castle get away. The price was right and we were very satisfied with our stay. The staff was friendly and helpful. The room was very clean, the new upgrades were appreciated, the bed was very comfortable, we had good WiFi and awesome sunset and ocean views. We liked the fact that the... More

We just stayed at the Morgan for 3 nights. Overall, we were happy with our stay. We were in the north building, on the highway side, but our total price including tax, for a room with two double beds, with a fireplace was $612, which is a bargain for a hotel near the beach in high season. Yes, the highway... More

Our room was called quiet, however it was noisy with the windows open because of the noise from the highway nearby. Room was very clean, nice firm mattress, more than adequate breakfast. The pillows were too soft and uncomfortable to sleep on, so we toss and turn through the night.

First of all, I'm glad I had to stay for only 1 night as it was just not good. We arrived on a weekend (on our well planned holiday), I must say I always check and compare hotels before booking them (also review). I booked The Morgan hotel 2 months in advance thinking it looked really good after visiting the... More

Dear Steve G, Thank you for your review of The Morgan. We usually received very favorable reviews about the condition of our rooms. The burnt out light bulbs are something our housekeeping department should have caught and I am sorry for the inconvenience. I am hopeful that our staff on duty was very quick to provide new lights as soon... More

Stayed at the morgan for one night while traveling up the coast. It's a comfortable hotel for one night in the spring. The biggest drawback however is there is no air conditioning, so I imagine it could get quite hot during warmer summer months.

Clean, comfortable room. No air conditioning, but didn't need it. There is a ceiling fan. Free parking. Breakfast was good...hard boiled eggs, cereals, breads and pastries, juices, coffee, tea, apples. Our room had a fridge for a mini-bar service. There were also two bottles of wine as part of the mini-bar service, if you were so inclined. Front desk staff... More

Room and hallways had a stench smell, room had a loose ceiling fan that moved side to side when turned in almost as if it was going to fall off the ceiling. Bathrooms were small and tubs and tiles dirty. Cars passing by can be heard inside room even when windows closed. No air conditioning. For a 3 star hotel,... More

Comfy, clean room. The kids were dying to use the pool but it was to cold and rainy outside when we were there. We had a room at the far end of the hallway away from the reception- there was an external door to the car park at is end of this hall, that was used fairly late at night... More

Basic hotel experience with average service. Decent enough rooms for the price. Breakfast could have had more healthy options, but 'complementary' is what it is. Location for touring Hearst is convenient. Namesake for Julia Morgan- Hearst Castle architect. Many art pieces reflect details for the castle property.
