Beautiful location and very friendly staff. This hotel is pet friendly and the staff seem to adore their canine guests. The rooms are clean and the beds very comfortable. Each evening the three woodburning chimney fire places are lit on the bluff overlooking the ocean. Wonderful to sit, enjoy the sunset and listen to the waves at night.

WE only stayed one night, but enjoyed it. Very good location right on the beach : Room very clean, but the pillows were very fat, and not comfortable - had a bad neck ache. Were disappointed that the rate did not include breakfast.

This appears to be an older motel that has been refurbished. It sits on oceanfront property with a large expanse of lawn for watching the ocean or playing. It looks like it would be a great place for kids. On the lawn there were two outdoor wood fireplaces with chairs grouped around them, and even in the dark you can... More

Everything was amazing! From Loan ("Lu-An") greeting us as we checked in, to the cozy bed & fireplace, to the spectacular views. Friendliest staff we've ever encountered at a hotel. Our room seemed brand new it was so clean and fresh. Cozy bed and and bedding with many many fluffy pillows. Wonderful wood burning fireplace in our room with wood... More

We stayed at the property 2/5/12 in one of the ocean front fireplace rooms. The bluff side bonfire and beautiful beach front were just amazing. Felt like we stepped back in time. A little vintage, but SOOOO charming. We plan on staying here everytime we return to the central coast. Great location for San Simeon, Elephant Seal Beach, Morro Bay... More

We made the horrible mistake of staying somewhere else and regretted every mintue of it. You cant get a better view, a lovely room and great price in this part of CA,... More

Loved staying at this Best Western. I must admit when my husband booked it, I said "Really, a Best Western?". I was happily surprised at the amenities, friendly staff, nice room on the ocean with a real working fireplace and warming huts on the beach. It got an A+. I would visit this Best Western again. It was so relaxing... More

Just kidding, Sacramento, California isn't that bad. Husband and I love to go to this hotel in San Simeon because it is so quiet and serene. God's beautiful ocean and the funny sea lions, bulls and pups are of course the best attraction there. There are other wonderful things too. There is a wonderful pier in Cayugos, California and a...
