After being cooped up in Los Angeles for 3 months, I decided to hit the road for a few days of rest and relaxation along the Central Coast. The Morgan turned out to be a little gem. Friendly staff, clean room, comfortable bed, and a cool ocean breeze were just what I needed. The rates are very affordable, and I would recommend that you pay the small price difference and get an ocean view. The hotel is a few minutes walk to a beach and a hiking trail along the bluff. The Hearst Castle is currently closed, but you can still enjoy the elephant seals a few miles to the North or Moonstone Beach to the South. After a full day of exploring, it was nice to settle in and enjoy the wide selection of TV channels in the hotel room. The Mexican restaurant next door was good, but I also ate some meals in Cambria. If you are looking for a town where you can maintain some isolation while also enjoying the area, check out San Simeon.

The Morgan was our second stop on the way from Los Angeles to San Francisco, and I'd highly recommend this hotel. The rooms were clean, the bed and pillows were super comfortable and it was very quiet so we got a great night's sleep. The continental breakfast is pretty okay but just what you need before heading out on the road again. There's a beach quite close by for an evening walk and a few restaurant options (one right next door).

Mycket positivt besök på ett rent, välskött hotell med det lilla extra som gör att man aldrig glömmer det. Vacker plats med ett bra läge nära flera sevärdheter. Vårat rum var stort med både öppen spis och burspråk. Att frukosten kunde haft mer att välja på och haft en annan klass kan vi leva med. Rekommenderas Very positive visit to a clean, well-kept hotel with the little extra that you never forget. Beautiful place in a good location near several attractions. Our room was large with both fireplace and bay window. That breakfast could have had more to choose from and had another class we can live with. Recommended

Very decent hotel. Appeared clean and well kept. The hotel is right off of PCH just minutes from Hearst Castle and the Elephant Viewing Site. The receptionist Marina was bright and courteous. I personally don't mind the continental type of breakfast as it gets me out the door quicker to do the things I came there to do. The HVAC could use a modern update, but the room was cozy regardless.

Stayed here one night. Room on first floor. No lights in hallway outside room. No temperature control in room. Generally clean but very worn. Tub barely drained. Bed sort of comfortable. Breakfast was glorified continental style-with Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwich option and hard boiled eggs.
