This was a very lovely place to stay after touring Hearst Castle and the seal rookery. The beds were comfortable and the place is situated in a nice area to view the magnificent coastline. The heaters situated on the beach was a great idea and very popular amongst the hotel guests so as a tip get in early. I must... More

I have stayed at this hotel three times and love the location with its wonderful ocean front views and beach access. The hotel itself is very pleasant and the rooms range from quite luxurious to ordinary business style, depending on the view and price. Everything is clean and in working order, and the beds are very comfortable. The TV reception... More

This facility had all the amenities and some I did not expect; the out door fire was used each night of the stay. the only negative was the bed being so firm. Overall, enjoyed the stay and would stay there again.

In our experience, Best Western establishments vary markedly; this one ranks at the high end of the scale. Really clean room with a fireplace, the biggest in-room safe that we've ever seen, unobstructed views of the Pacific, well-maintained grounds--all this at a very reasonable rate. Highly recommended.

The perfect picture is a gorgeous view of the Pacific Ocean either from your balcony or through the sliding glass door windows while sitting opposite your wood burning, in room, fireplace. Combine this with a bed that feels like you're sleeping on a cloud, a very large screen TV, a wet bar, a Keurig coffee machine and a shower that... More

We very much enjoyed our stay. Fireplaces, binoculars, attentive staff. Only problem was that the computer available for guests desperately needs to be replaced. It was totally unusable. I had my laptop with me, but I needed to print something and was unable to do so because it was so bad. Great location, Kona at check-in was very helpful and... More

So this small town is about 2 miles from the visitors center at Hearst Castle. The first time I came I stayed at the place literally across the street because it was cheap. It was terrible. This Best Western is definitely a better option. The room was clean. They had all sorts of little toiletries I didn't find at other... More

We've stayed here for over 30 years and just keep coming back. Always excellent customer service and accomodations. Close to Hearst Castle, San Simeon State Beach and the quaint town of Cambria. Great copulples get-a-way.

Enjoyed everything about this property. So many nice touches that make you feel more than at home. I recommend paying for the ocean front room. They are off from the traffic, RIGHT on the beach! Rocking chairs, binoculars, robes......again so many nice touches. Staff was great.
