Our stay here was very enjoyable. It's a great spot to stay to visit Hearst Castle, (three miles up the road), seeing the elephant seals (five miles up the road), and taking a longer drive to Big Sur State Park....all of which we did on our visit.
The chimineas on the beach at night (three of them) are a wonderful addition to the evenings - we sat out under the stars and chatted with fellow guests...we just picked a chair when one opened up, everyone is so friendly!
The restaurant on the premises has really good food and is reasonable priced. We took a three mile drive south to the little beach town of Cambria - delightful! Ate outside at Moonstone Grill (also good food) and watched the sun set over the ocean.
While the interior of the rooms will never win any design awards, they were clean and comfortable, and our patio facing the beach (although not right on it, you pay more for those) was so cute with two chairs and a table. All staff were friendly and helpful.
All in all a wonderful stay, and I would highly recommend.
