It's clean enough and has a big room but no breakfast and the water was cold so I avoided my morning shower I would suggest to try another hotel around there and when I was at reception everybody was coming in at different prices which was a bit annoying as I went in with special walk-in rate which was much...

Good and clean motel, suitable for a short stay when passing through. Location is good, being just across the road from the beach and close to touristy attractions are in the area.WiFi was initially good but got worse when the parking lot filled up in the evening. Would stay again.

Had a wonderful experience. We came for a honeymoon and the service did not disappoint. The entire staff was very accommodating and helpful. The atmosphere in the pool and all the hotel in general. We would stay here again. Well worth the price.

We stayed at the Courtesy Inn in San Simeon for one night after a visit to nearby Hearst Castle during the Labor Day week. Its reasonable but lack of breakfast is the only major drawback. Rooms are comfortable but not the cleanest.

Reservation was last minute between xmas and New Year. Good news, very close to Hearst Castle when our tour ended at 9:45p, and very close to beaches and multiple dining choices. Room had 2 queen beds for 3 adults, room wifi and no 2 night minimum stay requirement like many other locations. The room had seen better days. The switches... More

We stayed at the Courtesy Inn in San Simeon for one night after a visit to nearby Hearst Castle during the Christmas Vacation week. We booked sight unseen and no reviews read on Hotels.com. For under $100 a night, you get roughly what you pay for... A somewhat tired older motel across from the beach in a row of older... More

Room was dirty and pricey for what you get. No breakfast. Parking and Location was good but everything else was bad. I would avoid. Wouldn't recommend it. Staff were ok but not friendly. Noise level was so high.

For the price, the Courtesy Inn is perfectly fine. All we needed was a place to crash after doing touristy stuff in Cambria-which is what you get here. Nothing special, but nothing really bad to say either other than it is in dire need of some updating and minor repairs. The room was clean. Check-in/Check out was efficient. We were... More
