“Amazing location - Love it everytime!”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

This an amazing location! The hotel is older, however, the location makes up for everything. We love staying here for one night and taking the in amazing views to pick up our wines from the near by vineyards. The property is our of this world, you can hear the ocean waves from your room. They also have wood burning fire place in everyone (at least the 3 rooms which we stayed in) which makes the hotel even more inviting. If you like value and come for the amazing sounds and views of nature, this is the right place for you!

The location is perfect with ocean views! One can walk right out your room door to the park in front of the ocean and watch a beautiful sunset! The room was clean and comfortable. The Staff was friendly and efficient.

You will love this hotel-- great staff, unbeatable location,and well-maintained and comfortable rooms. Our ocean view room had a deck and a fireplace. There are outdoor bonfire areas overlooking the ocean. I highly recommend it.

We had a terrific weekend here with our two dogs. We had a room with an ocean view on the second floor. The rooms are great. If you want to use the fridge ask them to remove all of their stuff. The room we had had a wood burning fireplace but the compressed wood they left I could not get to burn so I would recommend bringing fire logs. Great location elephant seal area to the north. Great beach to walk to with the dogs from hotel. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Get an ocean view, second floor.

We spent two nights at this property last week (and wish it could have been longer). We had an ocean-view room with two rocking chairs on a great balcony. The room was clean and comfortable; complete with a fire-place (which we did not need because there was an unusual "heat wave" while we were there). Which brings me to my only "cons" for the property - in that it does not have air conditioning or a screen door for the patio door. The staff explained that because of the normal temps for the area, that no lodging in the area has a/c -- as it's not needed. It did have a ceiling fan, located over two upholstered chairs though instead of the bed. It also had a small window to the side of the patio door which could be opened. We ended up leaving the patio door open with the drapes pulled, which allowed the cooler evening air to come in and we could hear the ocean waves all night - loved it!. It cooled it down from 79 in the room to 76 the first night; and from 79 to 72 the 2nd night.. There was a frig (but it was stocked/mini bar) with just room enough for a couple of bottles of our own water. The staff was very nice. The views were wonderful. It is a dog-friendly property and there were quite a few guests with dogs our last day.. most well-behaved. We went into Cambria to eat, rather than eating at the restaurant on site..did not choose room service orders for food because it was quite expensive. Overall, we did enjoy our stay, would recommend and we will most definitely keep it in mind if in the area again.

Room Tip: San Simeon had one little place to eat, but it was closed when we went into town. Cambria is a shor...

We stayed here last week for one night on a trip up the coast. The room was clean! They provided very thoughtful amenities - nail polish remover pads, soothing foot wash wipes, makeup remover wipes, etc. and the best mini-bar prices I've ever seen. The view is phenomenal - ocean front with fire pits. We had a great breakfast at the restaurant. I would definitely stay here again!
