We stayed here for 1 night during our road trip up the California Coast. The room was okay for what we needed which was just somewhere to crash for the night before Big Sur the next day. We arrived at 10PM and left the next day at 10AM. The location is good in that it is the closest spot to... More

We stopped here for just 1 night as we we're making our way down the coast on a 2 week trip. It was okay but it wasn't great. Reception staff weren't necessarily rude but they didn't make you feel welcome. Whilst our room was very big it was also very tired looking. It was dark and gloomy and the bed... More

Our room was very standard with a king bed and 2 windows to see the ocean. The room was very clean and spacious. The shower room was a bit small. However, the vanity was not part of shower room so it all worked out fine. The TV was blurry, but we didn't watch it too much. The pool and spa... More

My original review:“Good value, clean and comfortable” Reviewed December 31, 2013 I was a bit worried about this reservation. I reserved with Otel, and had never heard of them before - but I checked with the hotel directly and they said Otel was authentic. Otel's rate was much lower than the other reservation portals. About the hotel. We did not... More

The best thing about staying here was the price 64.00 for a Friday night. Service was ok, room was good size but was dirty with stains along the baseboard and moldings. If you get a good deal its worth it for a night but don't expect much.

San Simeon is full of pricey 'inns' next to the ocean. For half the price you can stay one block away, in a strip just off Highway 1. The Courtesy Inn is one of several AAA approved motels here, along with a couple of cafés/restaurants. It's an older, privately run place, with fairly decent clean rooms and adequate room amenities,... More

This is a good place to stay if you are planning on going to Hearst Castle. Only about a 10 minute drive to the castle from the hotel. The room I had was large, comfortable, clean, and quiet. The service was always with a smile. I was given breakfast coupons at reception to use at a friendly restaurant next door,... More

We stayed here for 3 nights with my friends. We were meeting after 2 years and this property had the perfect room for 5 people. The cleaning staff was discreet and timed the cleaning to our varying schedule. The staff was very knowledgeable about the area and suggested great restaurants and activities. The location was ideal and close to various... More
