We had a family room containing3 queens room 222. Was exceptional value for money at $100/night had. They have an indoor pool and spa which the kids loved. Our room was downstairs and we did hear the many footsteps of those above us when they were leaving early in the morning. They have a deal with the restaurant next door... More

We only needed a place to crash in San Simeon for one night. I got a little over-excited to see a room available for $66... and we definitely got what we paid for. :) This two-storey motel is bargain basement basic. On the plus side, the front desk staff was friendly and helpful, we could see the ocean from our... More

My boyfriend and I stay here and always have a great time! Room was always clean. The front desk employees were always very nice and accommodating. We loved the indoor pool. Prices are affordable! Whenever we asked for more clean linens we received them. We definitely will keep coming back. We come up here from LA a couple times a... More

I booked this hotel on the price and the reasonable reviews I read. However, it has been the worst hotel I have ever stayed in. Entered room 221 and the heat/ac didn't work. Contacted the front desk and they said the ac only works not the heat. Well the whole unit didn't work because the whole unit cord was burned.... More

We were very disappointed that the spa was broken and not working. That is one of the main reasons we chose this hotel. Other than that we love this hotel for budget travel. Great location, friendly staff and clean rooms.

We spent two nights here on a recent trip to Hearst Castle. Good location, fairly clean and comfortable. I would have preferred the Cavalier, but not for the price difference. I would stay here again.

While San Simeon is a beautiful spot on the California Coast, it seemed a little dead this 12/29/14, might have more spark in summer months? We chose Courtesy Inn San Simeon after reading reviews where most reviewers called it clean. It seemed a little worn and old, in need of an update, but the rooms, walkways, stairs and grounds were...

The price was good, I should have known better. Shame on me. The ice machine was broken, the hot tub was broken, the refrigerator didn't get cold, the wireless connection was barely there. The complimentary shampoo and lotion came in little ketchup style packets and worked about as well as ketchup. The pillows on the bed were flat. Doubling them... More

We got there early for our check in by about two hours and the reception staff couldn't be more helpful. They found us a clean room and checked us in early without fuss and had we had a laugh with them, talking about England etc... Couldn't do enough for you. We stayed in a Double Queen Room which was a... More

Small motel on the strip with all the other San Simeon beach motels. Pretty bare bones style similar to motels from the 60s. U-shaped lay out with all rooms facing the outside. 2 floors only. We stayed on a fall weekend and it was about $50 + $20 for our dog. We initially reserved a king size bed but all... More
