Great views and service. Room service was prompt and food was excellent. Front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. Restaurant was convenient and reasonably priced and good quality. Much enjoyed the private balcony and the fire place in the evening. Very short distance to Cambria and Moonstone Beach.

The location of this hotel is spectacular - right on the ocean! Rooms focused on one of the most beautiful views. Kind of perfect at a great price - considering the location. Of course San Simeon is remote, but folks come here for a specific reason to see the Hearst Castle, but my husband and I would actually come back... More

We only spent two days in San Simeon, but might have spent a lifetime. The entire area from San Simeon to Paso Robles is littered by beautiful vineyards and wineries, including wonderful tasting experiences. There is shopping, hiking, bicycling, the ocean shore and all that goes with it and the beautiful shoreline scenery. But this review is about the motel,... More

Stayed for a night on the way to visit Hearst Castle. Great location about five minutes from visitor center right on the beach. It is a large property enhanced by the adjacent park that has a small estuary as part of the park property (Pico Creek). As noted in many reviews they light fires by the beach in the evening... More

The fireplace was nice, the room has some updated features and the location is superb. It is right on the Pacific ocean a couple of miles south of San Simeon. They have fire pits that are lit at sundown and it is very enjoyable walking on their very large lawn or going down to the beach. There is a coffee... More

We had a king room. Very nice with an ocean view. The restaurant on the property was nice. A little pricey, but the food was very good. They light bonfires each night. But, there was no reason to go outside, because our room had a fireplace. There is a fridge in the room stocked with items for purchase. The Keurig... More

We had an ocean front room reserved and confirmed. It was a good rate which, apparently, was an error on the website. When we called to inquire about our room we were told it was a mistake to offer the ocean front room for that rate but since we were confirmed they would honor it. They did not honor it... More

Great waterfront location, nice friendly service, nice restaurant food. Rooms were basic but comfortable. Very quiet spot and lovely vistas although not much around except for the cute elephant seals. Would stay there again and recommend it.
