1 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW via mobile

We had an oceanfront room on the main floor, discovered too late that there is no AC, the carpet was stained and we could only open a tiny window during the night (for safety reasons)... Not worth the amount of money... The view was beautiful but the hedge hid most of our view from our room and patio.

I recently visited Cambria/San Simeon area and was completely happy with my choice of hotel. After reading reviews and looking at website, I felt this hotel would meet my expectations for a surprise trip with my wife. We arrived at 3 pm on a Tues and went to check in...nope, room not ready. Hmm.. good thing we did not get... More

We had a great time in Cambria and the hotel was one of the reasons why. We were surprised to know that a Best Western would have such a luxurious accommodations. We stayed on the Terraces bluffs direct on the beach with non obstructed ocean view and separate from the main hotel. Our room was large the bed compfy an... More

It would have been nice to have a fridge in the room, rather than just a cool drinks & alcohol locked box. There is a severe drought in CA, and this area is extremely affected. Causing people to use ice to keep things cool, and then discard the melted ice (water) does not seem to be an efficient use of... More

We had a Wonderful room with an amazing view. They have a great staff at the hotel. We were able to relax and walk on the beach. We saw whales! We had a great stay in a beautiful spot. It also worked so well for the doggies. Thank you.

Location. Location. Location. Perfect location for Hearst Castle evening tour lodging. Restaurant open until 9pm for late dinner after tour. Room was above average, plus sea side views were a plus. We were here in April 2015 and enjoyed a sunny day along the coast, including the elephant seals and a beautiful sunset while on the Hearst tour. Foggy the... More

This is the second time we have stayed here. The location is good as it is close to the elephant seal rookery. Both times our rooms were not facing the sea and didn't have an open fire. We booked several months in advance, but only for one night. Maybe you get a nice room if you stay longer. We found... More

This hotel was right on the beach. With the hotel binoculars we we got a sweet surprise of being able to see whales from our balcony. The room was clean, comfy bed, There was a wood burning stove/fireplace. A sweet room. They have room service from an on site restaurant and the most reasonable prices I've ever seen for room...

Welcomed with cases of empty beer cans at the reception desk, found stains on the bead spread, no heating or cooling (just a broken floor fan in the closet). Oh and a broken toilet. Fun. Good location on the water, pools were nice, attached restaurant was fine, evening bonfire was a nice diversion from the room. Thankfully just one night.... More
