We arrived in San Simeon at dusk, as a one night stop in our trip towards LA. We were on a family plan, and I knew from the hotel web site that queen rooms had only a partial view of the ocean, but it was fine for us. Someone has to get the rear view at some point, right? It was one night anyway, there was not much to see in the dark.
We were close to the reception, on second floor. It was quiet and the room was comfortable, above average for Best Western (although the BW green upholstery is pretty ugly IMHO). We had a nice sized fridge and a very clean bathroom.
We arrived in a small lobby with a cute fireplace.The staff was friendly, and since our keys were working funny they walked up with us (usually hotel staff makes YOU walk).
Kids were too tired and cold to walk to the beach to the fires, but it gave a nice touch to the stay in a location that has not much charm otherwise. On the other hand, Cambria is a lovely town with much more to offer and many restaurants. I recommend The sow's ear for dinner.
