“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2012

I highly recommend this hotel...We stayed 4 nights....the hotel is extremely fashionable and updated. The lobby was warm with a Christmas tree..large overstuffed couches...all new decor...felt like relaxing in a large beautifully decorated living room. The continental breakfast is served on dishes with a variety of food choice...and really good coffee!!. The dining area overlooked the pool ...which is heated. The front desk is very helpful....and this boutique hotel is close to everything on the central coast! I highly recommend staying at "The Morgan"

Found this hotel on Tripadvisor and booked a great deal on the hotel's website. Stayed one night on a roadtrip from San Francisco area down the coast. Very close to San Simeon, convenient as we had an evening tour at Hearst Castle. Easy parking in front of hotel. Rooms were clean, large with updated bathroom, had a small refridgerator and honor bar. Our room faced Hwy 1 without significant noise; more noise was heard by the occupants upstairs walking around. Hotel is split into 2 locations. We stayed in the main building with registration and the breakfast buffet. Breakfast was good-standard items included hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, pastries, bagels, cereal, coffee/tea/hot chocolate/juice. Local eateries were limited and mostly closed after the evening tour at San Simeon. Would stay here again if needed to be close to Hearst Castle. Don't miss the elephant seal lookout nearby!

Room Tip: Suggest upper level room due to noise. Breakfast is located in the registration building.

Hotel on the beach with spectacular view of the Pacific Ocean. Room was large and clean. Offered in room refrigerator that was stocked with soft drinks, beer, and water. Available for use was a working fireplace as it can get cool in the evening. Ceiling fan and open windows provide adequate cooling breezes. Upon request an extra fan will be provided to be placed on the credenza. Breakfast buffet was included and the rate charged for the room was very fair. They also have a heated pool and Spa and direct access to the berach and ocean. Staff was attentive. Would recommend this place.

Room Tip: it is a two floor hotel without elevator access. if you have mobility problems, request aground floo...

My daughter, my friend and I spent the night before visiting Hurst Castle. Angie was very accomodating and allowed us to switch to an upstairs room so we could sleep with the ocean sounds. The room was very clean and had a gas fireplace. The beds were very comfortable. The hotel is very central to all the attractions and the helped us get our tickets for the Hurst Castle tours. The complimentary breakfast was not elaborate but it was fresh and the staff was there to keep it tidy. We will stay here on future visits.

Room Tip: Choose an upstairs room if you want to sleep with open windows.

We were a party of 7 - the staff put us close together. The lobby and eating area were comfortable places to sit and visit. Coffee/tea available all day. Continental breakfast ok. We forgot things in our rooms when we left and they were found and sent to us. The rooms were very comfortable. King rooms have a couch, Queen doubles have 2 arm chairs. There is no elevator to second floor. The rooms on the second floor have fireplaces and on the west side some have views of the ocean. It is an older building and nothing seems to have been done to soundproof between floors or rooms - so if you are very light sleeper I would recommend an upstairs room. Very close to places to eat that are in walking distance.

What a pleasant visit! Everyone was friendly and our room was spacious and very comfortable. The fireplace hit the spot. Only minutes away from Hearst Castle. We would definitely stay here again. Much more than we expected in such a small town.
