The room was large and clean, but I have to admit I barely remember noticing it because the view outside was so fabulous. It's the location and attention to details that make this hotel a great place to stay. The view of the ocean, the roar of the waves, the outdoor fireplace with its stock of pinon wood all combine...

We've stayed at this hotel before and have not been disappointed. The service was excellent and the staff was always courteous and accomodating. We love that this hotel is pet friendly and soooo cozy. We had an oceanview room and could hear the waves crashing - very relaxing. There is the Cavalier Restaurant next door which offers room service till... More

I stayed here for one night with my gf on our way down the coast. The room is nice with a big bed, and indoor fireplace. I got a room that faced the ocean. At night, they light bonfires near the beach for patrons to enjoy. The room is top notch, and I would be comfortable just staying in the... More

Only steps from the beach. The staff from the front desk to housekeeping were friendly and accomodating. Nice outdoor heated pool. Restaurant on site, room service available. The beach is why we visited and why we will visit again - it is wonderful. There was also a fireplace in our room.

My wife and I have stayed at this small, oceanfront hotel a few times and have yet to be disappointed. The rooms much like the ret of the hotel are nothing fancy and the focal point of the stay is your view and location which is superb. We love hopping in the car and five minutes down the road is...

This was family road trip with one overnight stay in San Simeon. The Cavlier met our needs and we had a good time staying there. On the plus side: Excellent location and property, giving you plenty to do when you get there. We watched wind surfers, walked on the beach, checked out the two pools and the exercise room. At...

We were very glad we had been able to get a room in this hotel. It is about the closest proximity you can get to the famous Hearst Castle, which by the way you should book ahead on the internet. It is an all American motel type establishment. We had a pleasant room with a balcony looking over the pool... More

We were visiting Hearst Castle for a couple of days and chose this lodging based on excellent reviews online. Happily, our own experience was very positive. The surf on the beach is very dramatic and beautiful alongside the inn and the fires are lit each night on the beach where people can sit to enjoy the evening air (it was... More

Thought i booked a King Oceanfront Room, only to get there, have to wait until 2:30 for it to be ready. When finally checking in found that they had me booked for a Family Room. Since cancellation fee would be too much and a long ride home (I live 3 hours away) i had to take it. No microwave even... More
