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 Completely outdated, with crumbling paint, I got the feeling management has done the bare minimum to keep this place afloat.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

So we decided to take a 4 day drive on coast from San Jose, ca. The Morgan was our first stop and after a day of driving and hiking the room could not be any better. Now keep in mind this is not your four seasons hotels. I would definitely stay there again. The Room was spacious with a partial... More

We stayed here as a launching point to explore the elephant seal rookery and Hearst Castle. There is not much to the town except for several hotels and a few restaurants. Overall we were happy with our 1 night stay. We had a double queen room in the newer looking 2nd building that is away from the lobby and check... More

The hotel is very close to Hearst Castle. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Our room was clean and pretty nice. The continental breakfast was basic, but enough to start the day. I would recommend this hotel.

The Hotel looks nice from the outside, but the room was dark and not very nice. It was clean, but a bit worn. And it cost way to much for the standards it has. Next time We would rater stay at motel6 at the other side of highway1. Much cheaper and more modern and nicer rooms.

The hotel was average at best. First impressions usually can say it all. We were helped by a front desk clerk who was chewing seeds and spitting them into a cup while waiting on us. Our room was in the front of the hotel so it was quite noisy. You could hear the highway most of the night. The rooms... More
