San Simeon is a small town along the beautiful California coast line. This hotel was a more budget friendly option during our trip down Highway 1 and it definitely has potential. While our room on the first floor could have used a more sound proof ceiling the majority of the rest of the room seemed to be remodeled. One thing... More

It was a normal little seaside motel. The pictures online were a bit nicer than the place actually was. The lawns were brown. There were people partying at the picnic benches outside of our room. You could hear people flushing their toilets in the other rooms. The water got cold in the shower when someone else used their shower. The... More

Brand new room and looks like renovations are continuing throughout the motel. Easy to find right off the main road so it was super convenient for beach walks, the elephant seal beach and Hearst castle. Will definitely recommend!

We recently stayed on 9/16 and 9/17/2016. I have to be honest that regretfully it was not a pleasant experience. We checked in on Friday evening to a older but decently maintained establishment with little problems. We proceeded to our room to find a somewhat renovated room that on the surface was clean but dated in the restroom. The pool... More

Very clean and well appointed room, with fridge, microwave and hairdryer, bed comfortable. Good shower - plenty of hot water. Large indoor pool and hot tub. Small resort, but with lots of places to eat - discount offered for restaurant next door- does breakfast, as no breakfast at hotel. Lovely beach across the road from hotel. Would recommend.

I gave this a very good rating because there were no problems, it's a basic motel though. The King bed pretty much filled the entire room. The TV worked well & there's a large mini-fridge (!) in the cabinet underneath. The bathroom was more spacious than the bedroom. Nothing to do at night in San Simeon but it was peaceful.... More

We stayed in a double queen room en route from Long Beach to San Fransisco. The room was clean and of a decent size and the reception was friendly and efficient. There isn't breakfast but you get a 12% off voucher for the cafe opposite.

Cons: they are in mids of renovation so we woke up at 9:30 to the noses of construction in The room right under and next to us so it was... More

Entering the lobby I was a bit skeptical, but the room was nice. Clean, lots of light, mini frig and microwave. My little dog was accommodated; he loved the big lawn in the middle of the complex. This made the visit more enjoyable. I do think the pool could use a cleaning,

The hotel for what we paid for was acceptable. We arrived at around 4pm from San Francisco and wanted to crash for the night. We started having a few drinks to chill and realised then that all the places to eat shut at 9pm. There's only around 3 places to eat around the motel. If you can drive south for... More
