We stopped for an overnight stay and looked for a cheap place near the Hearst Castle. I read some review saying that better stay in Cambria, but after sleeping in San Simeon I must disagree. The location is fine, 10 minutes to Cambria for dinner, 3 minutes to the Beach and 5 minutes to Hearst Castle, and 10 min to the Elephant Seal Rookery (don't miss!).
The hotel is clean, staff friendly and helpful and it has a Mini-Mart (open late), a bar and a restaurant. And you get a 10% discount for the restaurant, ideal for the breakfast (which is not included in the price). The room a small, and only some has views. We overlooked the pool, which was fine.
I believe that this hotel must be fantastic in summer, but I guess that the price and availability also changes. We paid in December less than $60 for the room (that makes me give them top rating considering what we got for it).
