The hotel had great location, staff and amenities but the beds and pillows were very uncomfortable. I don't think I would recommend this hotel to any of my friends. In addition, the restaurant had poor service. We were seated and no one greeted us for 10 minutes to even ask if we wanted something to drink. So we ended leaving... More

Wonderful place to stay! The ocean view room was spectacular! We loved how close to the beach we were! The rooms were very clean and nice. We also enjoyed the fire pits in the evening! The restaurant was fine. We found some nice places to eat a few minutes down the road in Cambria.

This is a great spot for a quiet getaway. Beach front location and has some nice amenities. Nightly fire pits operated by hotel staff, beach access, close to Cambria shopping and restaurants. Cambria offers several pet friendly restaurants as well. Very close to Hearst Castle and only 40 minutes to Paso Robles wine country. I would highly recommend this hotel.

I wanted to love this place, instead it was just okay. The location is great, as it sits directly on the ocean. But the day we arrived the fog was so thick we couldn't see a thing, including the ocean view we were paying for, so it really didn't matter. (Funny how none of the photos on the website show...

This could have been a 5 if it weren't for the desk clerk. The hotel is very pretty, right on the ocean. rooms were quiet and comfortable. Breakfast wasn't included but the restaurant made a very good one. At night they had fires on the beach and you were able to meet lots of different people while enjoying some wine... More

Supposed to get a 2nd floor room, but upon arrival it was a first floor. When I informed them, the staff simply said "there are never promises of a 2nd floor room but we can move you tomorrow." No A/C and couldn't sleep with sliding glass door open for safety reason, so we sweltered all night. The next day they... More

The Hotel is the best in the San Simeon area. The rooms are wonderful and have ocean views. The restaurant next door is 4 Star. The hotel staff builds bon fires at sunset so you can enjoy the fire and watch the sun go down. A VERY pleasant way to end the day.

Was quite happy with the value of this hotel overlooking the beautiful central coast of California. The room were spacious and clean and quiet. The staff was very helpful answering any questions and making suggestions. Nice hotel/good price. Have already visited it a second time.
