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

We love this hotel for budget trips to the coast. Helpful friendly staff, great pool for the kids and so close to the beach !! The hotel is close to different things so it is a convient place to stay.

Walked in and got a $56 rate. The room was on the end with an ocean view window. The room was clean, nothing fancy, but adequate. The only drawback was the hot water was only luke warm, even after letting the water run over 10 minutes, not too good during a drought. Just passing through and this was fine for... More

It looked like, and was, a typical motel which was what I was spec ting. I wasn't planning on dirty bed cover, in room wifi that didn't work and a staff that didn't care a jot. There are better places and similar prices. When I complained about the lack of wifi despite it being advertised as "in-room", the receptionist just... More

On my way to visit the beautiful Hearst Castle in San Simeon, Ca., I wanted to find an affordable, yet quaint Inn where I could see the ocean from my room, knowing that a lot of our baby boom readers, want just that same thing! Driving through San Simeon, Ca., I found about 11 decent choices and chose to do... More

Stayed here while driving Route 1 from LA to SF. The place is what you would expect from a $60 Motel on the Pacific Coast. The rooms are clean, the Air Conditioning did not work but the fan did so it was not uncomfortable at all. There is a nice beach across the road, did not have breakfast here. The... More

Yes, some rooms are nicer than others - we had a great room; 2 queen beds, flatscreen TV, refrigerator, clean and comfortable. My grandson loves swimming in the indoor pool. Staff was friendly and accommodating. We will return during the... More

Decent room, ended up with two double beds. Good shower. Cool to have the use of a swimming pool and jacuzzi. Nice restaurant & bar 2 min walk down the road San Simeon bar & grill - also has a small shop. Wifi was rubbish though - only worked right next to the reception and McAfee said it was unsafe....

Finally got burned by Hotwire by getting stuck with two rooms at this place - the worst hotel I've ever had a room. If I was giving a star rating I'd use a black circle for a black hole. Apparently others have not stayed at or seen the 500 building on this property. The hotel has a large front building... More

We stopped here for one night while we were travelling along route 1 to San Francisco. The wifi did not work. A few restaurants nearby by foot, nice and quite little town . I recommend to sleep here only for the cheap price, is sufficiently clean. The village is very nice and during the night you can hear sea lions.... More
