This was our third or forth time at this hotel and it just keeps getting better and better. Its position is perfect for fantastic sunsets made all the better by the fire pits they light just before sundown so you can take a drink down to watch the end of another day in paradise. The rooms are large and clean... More

Nice Room. Very comfortable beds and pillows. Right on the beach. Chairs are placed on the beach around fires that are lit at night. No breakfast provided. Great place to relax and enjoy the ocean. Would stay again.

Any time we are visiting the San Simeon or Paso Robles area we make as point of staying at this wonderfully situated inn. We enjoy staying at the units in the southwest corner of the property as they are located adjacent to the Pacific shoreline. Each time we visit the area we discover something new. The only downside we experienced... More

The view is gorgeous here! The rooms are in front of the ocean. There's also an old school fire place in some of the rooms. Our room had one and it was interesting because it was so uncommon. There was a bonfire pit outside as well which is light up at night. You can make some Smore's outside. I enjoyed... More

Clean, convenient, quiet, ocean front property and best of all -- pet friendly -- with a good restaurant! Near to Hearst Castle, Moonstone beach, Elephant Seal Rookerie---and the tidal pools along the coastline are a great adventure....

This was the third time we stayed at this hotel. Two for wine events at Hearst Ranch Winery and one for a trip to Hearst Castle. Location is great, only a few miles to Cambria. Love the view and the fire pits.

This was a very nice place to stay. Ocean View was wonderful. Room was very large and clean. Room Service Breakfast was very good. Very close to Cambria, Big Sur & Hearst Castle. I would recommend to anyone.

Though I noticed it was the #1 rated hotel in San Simeon, I wasn't expecting as good a stay as I experienced. Arrived late after a long day. Check in was pleasant and the room fine. I was too tired to venture beyond the easy walk to the hotel restaurant. I was expecting less than mediocre fare, but the vegetable... More

Spent more than we normally do on a month-long road trip, but we were convinced by the location, right on the Pacific Ocean, to splurge for one night. It was totally worth the money, as we had very reasonable room service delivered from the excellent restaurant on the property, as well as an in-room wood burning fireplace, and outdoor fireplaces...
