My girlfriend and I stayed here, as this hotel has a great location that is close to Hearst Castle (approximately a 7 minute drive away). The hotel staff were very friendly and they provided us with a room facing the ocean with a balcony. The room itself is very large, and included a decent sized bathroom along with an extra... More

This is a wonderful place! Our room is on second floor, facing the ocean. Great fireplace and very clean comfy room. We loved it! We had room service for our evening meal, plus breakfast, the food was great and the people were very friendly. Love the sound of the ocean! Only stayed one night, great motel!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Best Western San Simeon. We were greeted by very friendly staff. Our room had a wonderful sea view. The spacious room was well equipped with a modern bathroom, many toiletries, a coffee machine, a very comfortable bed and more. We enjoyed a walk along the sea front and spent time in the pool...

Oceanfront rooms are potentially great... 1) When you are on the bottom story, sitting on your patio, you cannot see the beach due to a shrubbery fence on the edge of the cliff. 2) There is no border or privacy fence in the front of your patio, anyone can just walk up and sit in your patio chairs. 3) There...

CA has very few oceanfront hotels..... this property is right ON the beach. Large rooms. Could hear the soothing waves all night long. We chose to spend extra for an ocean "front" room which was well worth the cost. Entertained by sea life all day...whales, pelicans, dolphins. Beach access easy for walks on the sand. Room service was reasonable &... More

Clean room. Friendly staff. Beautiful location, right on the water. Ate breakfast at the restaurant which I would recommend. The only complaint I would have is there was no air conditioning in the room. The hotel did provide a portable air conditioner for the room which is not the same as having central type air conditioning. Apparently this is common... More

Spent just two nights here and really enjoyed it. It is an unassuming hotel and in some ways quite dated but the rooms are really comfortable and the staff are very friendly. We loved the location and enjoyed walking on the deserted beaches and going to Cambria for our meals. There is very little around but it is an ideal... More

Hotel was highly recommended by a friend and I thought... It's a Best Western?!? But we were traveling to see Hearst Castle and I thought why not. SO glad we did! Beautiful ocean views from our suite, bonfires lite at night, very nice front desk staff. We had one slight problem and manager was very apologetic and gave us a... More

I had been given rave reviews of this hotel by some friends, and I found it to be a nice place to stay. The room was clean, the staff was nice, the restaurant was tasty, and the view was spectacular. We arrived late in the day and managed a nice walk on the beach before dinner. In the morning we... More
