Stayed at the Silver Surf on the second night of a road trip from LA to San Francisco. The whole experience was average compared to all other places we stayed in. The reception staff were young and not as friendly as others we experienced. Not that this is very important. The room was small for America and quite dark. There was a large tv but most channels had a poor reception. The walls were thin and we could clearly hear someone snoring in the room next door. The room was clean and there was a fridge. All that being said it did the job for what we needed and cost £69. There was also plenty of parking near the rooms. There isn't much in San Simeon other than hotels and a couple of restaurants but its an ideal starting point for a drive to Big Sur. One thing I would recommend to anyone staying here is heading over the road to the beach for the sunset. It was amazing. If you are here on a road trip call in at the Trading post convenience store 2 minutes away from the hotel. There's a sweet old lady in there that thinks the Beatles were from Manchester and they sell excellent maps of highway 1 showing some great places to stop.
