Good view

We ate here twice, and liked the location. Menu had the usual items, but we enjoyed our meals. Sandwiches were an option during dinner, and I like the option in the evening. We didn't stay at the Best Western, but the Motel looked great too.

We received a voucher for breakfast from the Sands Hotel next door, otherwise I am not sure we would have stopped in. The restaurant was pretty busy, which may be why the service was so slow. The waitstaff didn't seem to be very cheery. We were hoping to get on the road fairly quick but ended up spending about 45... More

We had room service for breakfast 2 mornings in a row and the food was very good. I would eat there again. They were very fast getting it to the room also.

We arrived for dinner at approx 7 pm on a Tues eve. The restaurant appeared full and judging from previous reviews...we were going to be in for a long wait. Well, to our surprise we were seated rather promptly despite my wife's request for a booth table. The hostess and server were polite and friendly. Ok, they passed that test..I... More

The restaurant occupies a large room whose many windows showcase wonderful ocean views. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, it offers a good range of American cuisine in home-style recipes served in large portions. The usual breakfast items come with fresh fruit, home-fried potatoes and a good selection of breads, the sourdough being our favorite. Dinner, which we also enjoyed... More

The food is pretty good- basic diner menu. Good friendly service. We were running late and had a tour for Hearst Castle so we ordered and told the server that we had limited time. She had our food out fast and we had plenty of time to make the tour time. The clam chowder is good!

We stayed in rm 161 which is for disabled. Luckily it's a temporary thing for my husband. We requested a Ocean View room because none of the a Ocean Front were wheelchair accessible. Really stretching it to call this Ocean View because about 1/2 of it is obstructed by the marred plexiglass pool enclosure. More of a "Peek View." We... More

We stayed 2 nights in San Simeon and think we ate here 3 times! Great menu to chose from. Both dinner, and breakfast. Large portions and reasonably priced. In short, great place for which we'd happily return.
