The location in regards to the town was good. Everything was within a short walk, although this was only a very small town, better for nothing than a stop over to break a long drive up, the price was very good which is what made it bearable, the beds were clean and comfortable, the bathroom was slightly dated and the...

Courteous staff, yes. Clean windows and a/c, no. Close to the beach and a convenience store, yes. Quiet bathroom fan, no way. My relative who stayed in the room noticed the mold on the window sill and in the a/c, plus the a/c gave off a funny smell. The helicopter-fan in the bathroom was very noisy. But I chose this...

Very good location,close to Hearst Castle. Large, comfortable and quiet rooms. Family friendly hotel with a nice pool and spa. We had a good night, however, the stay is quite expensive, especially a Saturday in August.

The Courtesy Inn was the perfect spot to stop on our trip up the PCH from L.A. to San Fran. The hotel was very clean but outdated. It is within a couple miles of the entrance to the Hearst Castle. There are several places to eat within walking distance of the motel. There is also a small convenience store about... More

A clean room, at a good price, on the Pacific Coast Highway near Hearst Castle. This was a good find. Kids enjoyed the indoor pool and pool area was nice. Felt safe. Well-kept older motel. Would stay here again.

We weren't planning to stay at San Simeon Beach, we were actually supposed to drive all the way to Ventura, but we were so tired after our drive from Big Sur, that we needed to stop and rest! So the first thing we found was San Simeon Beach, which is very conviniently located right by the CA-1. This is a... More

Our room is clean, nice size, and comfortable beds. Swimming pool and jacuzzi were clean and well maintained. Staff are friendly and helpful. One negative is the poor water pressure from the shower head.

Nice place, very clean and comfortable. We stopped on our way traveling up the coast, and found it to be much more than we expected. The other reviews we read were helpful. We had a view of the ocean all be it across the street and with another building in the way. The staff was very friendly and helpful as... More

Stayed for one night after LA en route to Hearst Castle and the Big Sur. Very cheap. Huge, well appointed room with massive comfortable bed. Very new looking furniture. No hot water when we arrived in the early evening but OK in the morning. WiFi in the room didn't work and very slow in reception area. Plenty of eating establishments... More
