We stopped overnight at the Best Western Plus after a trip through Big Sur on our way to Hearst Castle. The ocean view room we stayed in was clean and nicely decorated, with a functional fireplace and fantastic view. Around sunset, hotel staff light up a series of fire pits with chairs around them that are available for customers, and... More

We stayed in an ocean front room, very relaxing and felt like you were a part of the ocean. very good room service menu and the fireplace was nice once we got it lit. The Internet was a good speed to work and allow streaming

Hotel has a good restaurant. Good food. BUT do not order steak and eggs. The steak was pretty bad. Took 30 minutes to get the food. Waitperson said it was because I ordered steak. Steak was overcooked and had a funky taste. Lunch was wonderful.

We had a great stay in this hotel. Our room was upgraded to one in the annex where we had a view of the beach and the waves. The access to the beach is just by the hotel and we walked down and watched the sunset. The room had a wood burning stove, large double and was very comfortable. The... More

This hotel is LOVELY! 5 adults and a 5-year old, we all loved it. Location location location - San Simeon is pretty much in the middle of nowhere and has a windswept special beauty. The hotel is set just up and back from the beach where we had a lovely time looking for driftwood. The firepits are so lovely and... More

We planned a trip to Los Angeles during the Easter Holidays. We were very impressed by the beautiful scenerary of the Pacific Coast along the Highway One. The Best Western Calvalier Hotel at San Simeon locates right at the ocean front alongside the highway which provides an ideal stopover place for travellers like us. And the famous Hearst Castle is...

On our- glorious- 4-day-motorcycle trip along the magnificent California's Pacific Coast/ Hwy 1-, we stopped along this little coastal town called San Simeon, to admire and ponder about "The Hearst Cattle’s legacy" which is located on an impressive hill overlooking the Pacific Ocean just 10 minutes away from this hotel. So this hotel is just the perfect place to recharge... More

This is a superb property that takes advantage of its spectacular location on the edge of the Pacific ocean to give its guests a memorable experience, whether for one night or longer. The location, off the highway at San Simeon, is easy to access and close to other significant tourist attractions along the coast. We were upgraded to an Ocean... More

This hotel is a nice find very near to the Hearst Castle and probably is the nicest hotel within a short driving distance of the Castle. The rooms are large and comfortable. We had an oceanfront deluxe room with a large balcony and fireplace. There is no air conditioning in the rooms and we stayed during a hot spell. That... More
