We found the Morgan to be a great choice in San Simeon. The room was large and the bed extremely comfortable. It is an excellent location if you're visiting Hearst Castle. The front desk staff were very nice and knowledgeable. Breakfast was Continental style and a perfect way to start our day. The hotel was clean, safe and had a... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night to visit the Hearst Castle, which is only 3 miles away. The property is old but well maintained and clean. It needs some refurbishing, but provides comfortable clean accomodations for a short stay. We arrived at night and the front desk clerk was polite and helpful, but not particularly friendly, welcoming or... More

The Orchard Inn has been fully renewed and gave birth to The Morgan, a small hotel in San Simeon. We stayed there for one night as we were visiting Hearst castle, in San Simeon. I had some doubts before getting there as the reviews were not all positive. I have to say that in San Simeon it really seemed as... More

Rooms are ok but at $170 for one night they were liken to a Super 8 plus no air conditioning. Reasonable continental breakfast.

We stayed in the building north of the Mexican restaurant. The rooms had been renovated except for the bathroom fitments!!! The rooms were clean and beds comfy. There is noise from the doors but most guests were quiet at an OK time. The breakfast was disappointing. Staying in San Simeon allowed us to get to Hearst Castle before the crowds... More

I agree with some other reviewers that The Morgan seems to be the best hotel in San Simeon. We only stayed one night but the hotel was great for what we needed: a base overnight before heading off on an early-morning tour of Hearst Castle. From the outside, the hotel does not look the best, but most of the motels... More

If you decide you want to stay in San Simeon during your drive along beautiful route 1 or for your visit to the Hearst Castle, you must know that the hotel options in San Simeon are sub-par. San Simeon consists of one small strip with a handful of motels. From what I could tell, the Morgan is the best one.... More

Although there is nothing to complain about in the service and cleanliness departments, this place just needs a few more amenities to raise it to its claimed "boutique hotel" status. San Simeon is really a non-town, just a bunch of hotels and a couple of restaurants clustered between the charming tourist town of Cambria to the south and the road... More

My first impression of the Morgan was not the best. The parking area looked worn and stained, the fountain wasn't working, and the planters were far from being lushly planted. The lobby is beautiful. The decor is tastefully done with dark woods, Asian accents, and rich colors. However, the photos on the Morgan's website are deceiving when it comes to... More
