We hit a lot of hotels on our month-long trip up the coast and this was certainly one of the nicer affordable ones we stopped at. It's in an area where there are several other hotel options if you don't happen to like Best Western. We liked our room and the the ocean is only about 60 yards away. They... More

We ate breakfast and dinner at least twice & both were excellent. The staff is friendly, efficient, and the food was well prepared. I had the best liver & onions I've ever had here.

Had breakfast here, service was average as was the food, prices were above average. Not much to write about. Oh almost forgot! Fresh fruit was frozen...

Food was excellent! Lots of choices. Waitresses friendly and helpful. Reasonably priced for the area. It was dark when we ate there, but would have been an awesome ocean view during the day!

Rude front office staff, very basic restaurant - they live off fact that they are close to Hearst castle, but much nicer places in Cambria. Don't let the website pics fool you - this Place is not on the beach but on a bluff on top of beach....beach access (to hotel and public) is 500 yards

We had breakfast there, sort of. The service was first slow, and unapproachable later. For 4 persons we got 2 knifes, 2 spoons and 8 toasts. My question for some additional cutlery kept unanswered (so I helped myself and took it from another table). Guess if it was possible to get a coffee refill. Never ever.

This review is for the restaurant portion of this resort. We had a thirty minute wait for a weekend dinner which is not that bad. Reservations are recommended. We stayed at the hotel and just walked over to eat. I ordered the mixed grill while my husband ordered the trip-tip. My mother ordered the salmon salad. Service is very good... More

We planned to eat breakfast here, the server was very unfriendly. The server showed up after we waited for 15 minutes, and when I about to take our orders, she left for no reason before I could tell her what we want to eat. I asked another server for help, the other one said she isn't our server and she... More

Enjoyed meal in a dimly light environment. Waitress was attentive, food tasty and good portions. A bit on the pricey side but no different from higher end sit downs.
