I used to live in Cambria and Cayucos, so I am totally familiar with the area, so we decided to stay in San Simeon because I hadn't stayed there before. The room was great - lower level (and I prefer the upper level, but this was actually ok) - and the view of the ocean was absolutely incredible. We also walked to the beach in the evening, enjoyed our casual walk, which was only footsteps away from our room.
We sat on the patio each evening, sipping wine from our winery tours, and watched the incredible sunset. We also had a fireplace in our room, so after our ocean walk and patio seating, we then built a fire in our room and it was so very romantic.
My only concern is the housekeeping service. We tipped them each day ($5.00), left a note that we needed more firewood and they totally complied. We had more than enough firewood, but the cleanliness of the room was somewhat a concern for me. I am used to having a housekeeping service clean up and/or clean around and stack everything. Instead, they cleaned "around" my stuff; and if I had stuff, they didn't do any cleaning except around it.
