I was staying across the road at the Courtesy Inn and saw this place across the road ( Highway 1) and it was right at the ocean. We had a great meal and they have a small part of menu just for Seniors wanting a light meal. I had 1 egg, 2 strips of bacon, 2 pieces of toast, coffee... More

We had been recently driving down Pacific Coast Highway and planned on staying in San Simeon for the night. When booking the room in advance an oceanfront room was a high-priority. I called the hotel directly and booked with them and the person who took the call was extremely helpful in describing the rooms and selecting a room that was... More

Spent the night on our drive north from LA. Stayed here because of its proximity (3 Miles) from the Hearst Castle. The room we had was functional, without the splendid views some of the rooms have, but this was fine for us as we arrived later and left early....and it was very foggy anyway that day. The hotel restaurant was... More

Stayed here for a night, room was pleasant, clearly have modernised the rooms recently, bed was comfortable. From the outside it doesn't look too glamours. The Hotel has nice fire pits that are great to relax around in the evening. The restaurant feels like an old peoples home, it needs some serious modernisation. If you want to appeal to a... More

Close to Cambria, elephant seals, breaking surf, Hearst Castle, and the Big Sur scenic drive. Wineries are an hour away. Decent dining choices in Cambria. Very good walking and hiking, too. Sounds like a pretty good combination.

We stayed in the second floor oceanfront room that was probably 50 feet from the sea. The deck provided a wonderful place for cocktails and the sound of the surf lulled us to sleep both nights that we were there. The hotel is a couple miles south of the Hearst Castle entrance and 5 miles north of Cambria which offers... More

Would highly recommend this BW plus as it had all that we expected with the added bonus of a pod of dolphins just offshore. The on-site restaurant is another bonus with room service also available. We had a small issue with the in-room safe and it was dealt with professionally by reception and fixed the next morning. The evening fires... More

On approach to this hotel when we arrived I didn't think it was going to be very nice as it looked a bit like a motel. The guy who booked us in was really nice and welcoming and advised us to visit the fire pits after dinner. The room was great very big, lovely and clean and had a really... More

Couldn't ask for more. We had sea side view. Rooms were very nice. This town is more like a tiny village. A first class operation. Breakfast at the hotel restaurant was very good. NOTE: if you are driving NORTH from here, Get GAS! I mean don't leave with out gas.
