The 1st time I reviewed this Best Western I said I wish I could keep it a secret. That was because it used to be cheaper to stay here. We had enough rewards points to get a free night here.However, your free night gets you a room in the older section. We did have a partial ocean view if you were at the window. The 1st time we stayed here it was in the older rooms but after that we were upgraded to stay in the newer rooms that have fireplaces and balconies or patios with complete ocean views. As I sat using the computer in the lobby I heard the staff quote prices on the rooms and they were very expensive. That is one reason we haven't stayed here for a while because the rooms were so expensive.We have always stayed here during the peak season but never paid as much as they charge now.I guess more and more people have found out that this is a good location.
The one thing that we like about this location is that it has fires in fire chimneys on the beach and they have lights so you can see the ocean at night. We sat in the chairs by the fire and met tourists from Norway, New York state and Missouri. We sat there for a long time talking and it was one of the highlights of our trip. The beach is nice to watch from benches or by walking on the beach. There is a restaurant on the property.They do not offer a Continental breakfast. It is only a few miles down the road to Cambria where there are restaurants and shops. Hearst Castle is just minutes away.
