After a day driving the Big Sur this is a great stopover hotel. Big rooms, with a very comfortable bed. Indoor pool and hot tub. In San Simeon there are only a couple of small grills to eat in. The one that the hotel recommended next door was very busy, over priced with poor service. We drove 5 minutes south... More

My stay at Courtesy Inn didn't start well. I had to move to a different room as mine had one of its beds broken and the bathroom door would not shut. However, after that -- other than a sink that was slow to drain -- all went perfect at this budget motel. A fairly spacious room, soft beds; and a... More

Cheaper style motel; reception staff was not very friendly, and did not give us the required information. E.g. they told us they work together with a place nearby for breakfast, and explained what we could get for 7.50 $. But forgot to tell us we had to buy vouchers at the hotel reception desk before going there. I had to... More

This hotel is old and worn down. The rooms are not well kept and the grounds are dirty. I paid over $300.00 for the family suite. I feel that this room was worth about $150.00. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub quite a bit. It wasn't busy so it was nice. I only stayed here because we booked last... More

We stayed here because it was close to Hearst Castle. The location is good but the property is in need of refurbishment ,particularly the over bath shower which must have been designed for people of very short stature! Overall it served a purpose but we wouldn't be in a hurry to return.

Bland roadside stop. The room was large with two queen beds but it was basic. Did have an iron, ironing board and Coffee making machine. The shower had extremely poor water pressure - almost impossible to have a shower. TV didn't work. Wifi was good in office but poor from room. Noise from adjoining rooms, above and beside, was disturbing.... More

This is actually a good find on the coast of California. Considering the hotel across the street is $199. The room we had was 2 queen beds. It was large. There was a table and chairs, mini frig, ac, and a flat screen. The t.v. connection isn't awesome but you can watch t.v. The room was dated but clean. They... More

Sure it is old and you can hear the upstairs folks if you are on a bottom floor room. I would recommend an upper floor room. Our room was very adequate just here for 2 nights while visiting Hearst Castle. Clean comfortable room with small fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Nice indoor pool and spa. We could see the ocean... More

Typical hotel for when you are on the way north or south. One night should be the maximum stay. Hotel needs renovation. Staff not very friendly. Rooms seem clean, location is good, parking in front. For dinner.. Go to Cambria, don't stay in hotel packed San Simeon.
