We needed to spend a night in San Simeon before touring the Hearst Castle. Arriving in early evening, we used our Tripadvisor App on our iphone to locate a hotel. This one was rated fairly okay from previous travelers so we chose to follow their lead.
The gentleman running the motel was friendly and welcoming. It's an old motel so don't expect updated anything. The pool is enclosed but is exposed to the outside air via a breezeway. Our kids enjoyed the pool.
The room was a good size for the 5 of us. They did not have roll away beds so one of our sons slept on the floor. We "hijacked" an internet connection from the neighboring motel; I'm not sure there was internet available at our hotel.
Breakfast consisted of a voucher for a free sweet roll and coffee at the restaurant next door. We ended up using the option of applying the voucher towards $3 off our breakfast.
We slept well, it was quiet and comfortable overall. It's an old motel so as long as you're not expecting updated and new everything, you'll find this a good place to spend a night.
