Spent a night here on our way to SF from LA taking PCH. It's at an ideal location to visit Hearst Castle.
The hotel has two buildings, which are exactly the same (the receptionist told us). The main building has the check in/out counter and serves breakfast. It's fairly far from the ocean, so don't expect to step out of your room into the sand. If you get a west facing room, you'd be able to get the ocean views.
It's clean (that's for the the 4-star rating), but other that I wasn't wowed by anything--towels seemed old from all the washing, bed was just about average, breakfast was not too spectacular (very crowded, to be honest).
If you've never lived by the coast, expect a distinct kind of smell because of the moisture that stays in seaside buildings.More
