On our 15 day vacation every Best Western Plus we stayed in provided nice complimentary breakfasts but not this place. In addition to being overly pricey to stay here the room and the bath were crowded compared to other Plus hotels e stayed in. The on-site restaurant was super expensive so don't plan on eating there unless you want to... More

This was the first hotel we stayed in on our Central Coast trip for Spring Break. I booked it because of the reviews, the fact that it is oceanfront and its proximity to Hearst Castle. We received a second floor room in the main building attached to the lobby/ registration desk. It was not an ocean front room, but from... More

Nice location. Very clean. Pleasant staff. Checkout time is 12:00 which is nice. We have stayed at this location quite a few times and recommend it. Very quiet and peaceful. The proximity to the ocean and beach is wonderful.

Great views and service. Room service was prompt and food was excellent. Front desk staff were very helpful and friendly. Restaurant was convenient and reasonably priced and good quality. Much enjoyed the private balcony and the fire place in the evening. Very short distance to Cambria and Moonstone Beach.

The location of this hotel is spectacular - right on the ocean! Rooms focused on one of the most beautiful views. Kind of perfect at a great price - considering the location. Of course San Simeon is remote, but folks come here for a specific reason to see the Hearst Castle, but my husband and I would actually come back... More

We only spent two days in San Simeon, but might have spent a lifetime. The entire area from San Simeon to Paso Robles is littered by beautiful vineyards and wineries, including wonderful tasting experiences. There is shopping, hiking, bicycling, the ocean shore and all that goes with it and the beautiful shoreline scenery. But this review is about the motel,... More

Stayed for a night on the way to visit Hearst Castle. Great location about five minutes from visitor center right on the beach. It is a large property enhanced by the adjacent park that has a small estuary as part of the park property (Pico Creek). As noted in many reviews they light fires by the beach in the evening...

The fireplace was nice, the room has some updated features and the location is superb. It is right on the Pacific ocean a couple of miles south of San Simeon. They have fire pits that are lit at sundown and it is very enjoyable walking on their very large lawn or going down to the beach. There is a coffee... More
