This was our final stop on our way back to Los Angeles; my boyfriend and I stayed here as part of our 3day trip to the central coast for our 2 yr. anniversary. Our first trip to The Morgan was Valentines Day 2009, and we were so pleased that we decied to stay again. The staff was so pleasant and... More

I was someone disappointed with the hotel. It may be the best around the area though it is more expensive than Holiday Inn and not as impressive.

This was the first stop on out California road trip, after LA. We didn't have high expectations and there's not much of interest in the surrounding area other than Hurst Castle. Tired looking and is really more of a motel than a hotel. Our room was boiling hot when we arrived to check in - the cleaning staff had kindly... More

We drove down Highway 1 and arrived here at 7 p.m. I had made a list of possible places to stay earlier that day and seen all had vacancies so decided to wait and see what they looked like! This was the first I stopped at: I had my 84 year old mother with me who needs a walk in... More

We enjoyed our stay at The Morgan after visiting Hearst Castle.It's a beautiful hotel and the staff were very friendly. We especially enjoyed the extensive breakfast, and the heated pool was especially fun when the temperature outside was quite chilly. The building we stayed in smelled a bit musty, but the staff were on top of it using fans and... More

We left San Francisco in our rental car and headed south to LA, stopping in San Simeon to show the kids the legendary Hearst Castle. I had read the reviews and selected The Morgan ... and we liked it right away when we got here. Good sized room, comfy beds, heated pool that the kids loved, free WiFi, tasty free... More

I've stayed in both the main hotel and the one down the street. They both have been remodeled with new modern fixtures. The beds were very comfortable. We had an ocean view, but not right on the beach. I liked that it was walking distance to the beach, so I can take an early morning run. That was beautiful and... More

They have done cosmetic upgrades, but all of the features you need to have a good stay are Terrible! I had a room in the "other building", which appears to have been built in the 50s or 60s and most things have not been replaced. A few highlights: *The toilet would not flush completely. Half the bowl would go out,... More

We had a nice stay. Rooms were clean and up to date. Showers were fun. Beds really comfy. Windows opened. Pool was nice and heated. Beach close. Only bummer was breakfast. They should say continental breakfast included. Hard boiled eggs shouldn't count as breakfast. They could invest in a waffle iron or just some hot servers. Cold cereal and toast... More

We had a wonderful view of the ocean. The fireplace in our room was romantic and appreciated with the cool weather. The hotel was very clean. They had a great friendly staff. Nice breakfast in the morning. We would go back.
