We stayed here on a road trip in Aug 2014, we hadn't booked anything for the night and had driven south from San Francisco down Big Sur. It was getting dark and came across San Simeon. The Days Inn seemed a good bet but it was horrendously expensive and whilst the rooms were large and well equipped I wouldn't stay... More

This was a disgusting hotel. Dirty, had bugs and loud. Was scammed into thinking that this was a room that overlooked the ocean; sure the hotel is facing the ocean but so is the building in front of it. Our room was not worth the $150 a night- no ocean view but there was a view of the dingy rooftop... More

I loved the hotel, its nicely renovated right on the beach. We were traveling to Hearst Castle on our way to California and stayed here for 1 night. The rooms were newly remodeled and hallway was like Las Vegas. Loved it

My son and I were doing the Big Sur drive from San Francisco to Los Angeles. We were coming to the end of the second day's driving, were weary and sort of hoping against hope that the place we'd find would ruin the wonderful scenery that we had witnessed on the drive down. Lo and behold, we took our chances... More

I stayed her 7/26/2014 to 7/27/2014, before I stayed I called to make my reservation 3 weeks in advanced. I only received a confirmation number over the phone, so I thought. When my credit card was not charged, 1 week later I called them. I spoke to a women who stated she didn't not have that confirmation number. They I... More

I booked this room after reading the rave reviews about how clean they were. When traveling, cleanliness of the rooms will win me over everytime. I don't know what most people's standards of clean are, but these rooms are far from clean. The rooms are dated. There was pubic hair on the toilet, stains on the sheets, and the bathroom... More

This is the best Days Inn I've stayed in - our room was really big, bathroom smaller but that didn't bother us. We asked for an ocean side room but unfortunately didn't get one. Microwave and fridge in the room. Room above us was very noisy until about 3am running around it seemed? But that's not the hotels fault. Breakfast... More
