We stayed at the Cavalier Beach Front Motel in San Simeon for 1 night as we wanted to visit Hearst Castle the next day and the motel is well located for this.
As with most "Worst Western" hotels, our room was in need of updating and refurbishment and was a huge disappointment. It was both dark and not particularly well cleaned which gave a bad first impression.
The location on the beach was nice though and the pool is inviting even when there is a cold Pacific wind blowing in. Also there is free ample parking which was a positive.
There is a restaurant in the complex and the standard of the food and the staff were both really good.
This is probably the best place to stay in San Simeon (which is more of a collection of motels than a village) however I doubt wether we would want to stay here again.
