We travelled across 7 states on a family holiday. At a few locations we stayed at expensive branded hotels and several mid-level hotels in cities. For San Simeon we chose a cheap option as it was 1 night as a stopover for the long drive.
We were pleasantly surprised, large rooms, fridges, comfy beds, breakfast included, free WIFI (that worked) parking in front of room.
IN the USA it seems the less you pay the more inclusions you get for free.
We would recomend this motel for stopovers in San Simeon, location just far enough from the beach to negate the surf noise but still on the beach side of the highway. Not many restaurants around within walking distance but we tried the Mexican a few hundred yards away and had a great meal with cheap drinks.More
