I loved this Best Western: it has a great ocean view, good size & very clean, well decorated rooms, great amenities, very inexpensive fridge contents, excellent location just next to the beach, friendly helpful staff, a restaurant next door, fireplace in your room, free parking, free fast internet, easy access, what else do you need? Breakfast included perhaps?

If you love the beach and nature, the Cavalier is the best spot in San Simeon. Our room had a fireplace and a patio that let us out on to their beach trail walk. They light fire pits at night for romatic night views of the sea and a glass of wine. They have thought of everything. Rooms even have... More

The staff really went the extra mile for me and my dog Argyle. Even though this hotel is only rated a 3 1/2. The views of the ocean, access to the ocean front paths. Fireplaces in the room and Fire pits along the ocean were a lovely surprise. Fully stocked bar fridge and every amenitiy you could hope for. They... More

I brought my wife here for our anniversary and she loved it. Woke up this morning to the sound of an elephant seal on the beach. How cool is that? Nice to have a real wood-burning fire in the fireplace in the room, a lovely view, good service. I like how they have to big comfy chairs facing the view,... More

This place definitely earns the word "resort" in it's title. My best friend Walt and I stayed here many times over the years. Unfortunately, I lost Walt to cancer 2 years ago. As hard as it was for me, I returned for a short visit this month. It brought back so many great memories. We felt this place was like... More

This hotel was definitely a nice stay, for the price and for the location it was a great price. I got the AAA discount so it cost around 400$. My friend and I went here to spend a couple nights because we wanted to just be to ourselves for that weekend before I went back to school and it was... More

The San Simeon Best Western is one of the nicest we have ever stayed at. The service was great, the room was exceptional, and the location and views are fantastic. I would stay here any time, and would recommend it to our friends without hesitation. Just a very pleasant place to stay when in that part of California.

We went to tour Hearst Castle and enjoy a little ocean time. We had an ocean view room with a nice view of the surf and sunset. The staff was willing to upgrade us to an ocean front room, but I am allergic to wood smoke and the room was smoky smelling. I didn't use our fireplace but the nightly... More

Paid extra for a sea side view that was partially blocked. Room needed several repairs that were not fixed the first time. Restaurant was very good with very good service. Professional massage was excellent.

We had a balcony ocean-view room above the long grassy knoll overlooking the bluff. We loved the wood-burning fireplace in the room, and kept the sliding door cracked open to listen to the ocean all night long as we slept. The chipper staff provided unpretentious, courteous, accommodating service. There wasn't a free breakfast, but the restaurant's American-Casual menu was fresh... More
