Stopped overnight as we drove up the coast to San Francisco. The Morgan is located very close to Hearst Castle which was a plus as we toured first thing in the morning. We were disappointed with the way the room looked, as we were expecting what we saw in the pictures on the hotel website. The rooms are dated and... More

This hotel has a nice, friendly staff. It is just a short walk to the beach and a quick drive to Hearst Castle. My king-bed room was large and comfortable. Be sure to look at the framed prints of Hearst Castle architect drawings by Julia Morgan and photos of the final product.

+ located right on the 101, which is nice + electrical fireplace in the room - the hotel consists of 2 buildings. We stayed in the secondary building. This building looks very rundown, even a bit scary to arrive at night - no elevator in the building. And no staff to help. So get ready to carry your suitcases up... More

We stayed here on a 10 day anniversary trip, and it was such a neat hotel! No elevators, they have preserved the old hotel charm, but very cozy and quaint. Out room had a fireplace in it, no air conditioner, and even though it was mid July, you didn't need one. It was about 65 degrees during the day, a... More

Very cute, older hotel, nicely refurbished. Perfect for a 1 night stay after a tour of Hearst Castle. Hotel was named after Ms. Morgan, the brilliant woman behind the design of the Castle, so they feature her and the Castle, as art around the hotel. Room was clean and had nice amenities. Beach was about a 10 minute walk. Plenty... More

When I was looking for places to stay near Hearst Castle, The Morgan seemed to be a reasonable place. There were no unobstructed ocean views and it seemed odd to us that a Mexican Restaurant was in the middle of the 2 buildings. The room we got was a corner room with a fireplace. It was cozy and clean. A... More

There are limited choices to stay in the San Simeon. Since we knew we needed to stay overnight in order to visit Hearst Castle and to see all of the tours, we had to find something in the immediate area. The website for the hotel states: Preeminent, Storied Accommodations, Boutique, Julia Morgan inspired. The photos on the site lead you... More

Just stayed overnight at the Morgan. The hotel was quiet,very clean, and had a comfortable bed and a good shower. What more could you ask. A light breakfast is included, pretty simple but the coffee was good.

We stayed a night here booked through Hotel Tonight. We were headed north up the coast and stopped to tour Hearst Castle which was right down the road. The website made the hotel look quite polished and new. In actuality it is an older property but rooms were clean and comfortable. We were thankful for fans in the room since... More

The Morgan's reviews have been dwindling over the last year, with good reason. This overpriced hotel in no way resembles pictures on their website. Completely outdated, with crumbling paint, I got the feeling management has done the bare minimum to keep this place afloat. Old wooden doors, crusty old refrigerators and soggy mattresses awaited us after spending over $200 a... More
