“Worth the stay”
Reviewed August 19, 2012

Nice place, when passing through on highway 1. We really enjoyed the indoor pool and spa after a long day on the road. The room was big, clean and comfortable. I also think there were some extra TV-channels that we hadn't had at other places (mostly judging from the movie options). Only negative was a noisy air ventilation in the restroom.

There's a couple of places to dine within walking distance and I can recommend taking the time to walk down to watch the sunset over the Pacific Ocean.

If going to Hearst Castle - it's a short and easy drive from the hotel.

I've stayed at the Courtesy Inn twice, and in both instances I've been pleasantly pleased. The staff was very helpful and ready to assist in any way. That makes for a great experience.
Our basic room was clean, the beds & pillows were comfy, the micro and fridge were handy, and our little dog felt right at home. Our American style breakfast (for a fee) next door at the San Simeon was savory, as well as convenient.
The Inn's location makes for a great home base, in close proximity to the picturesque community of Cambria, minutes away from Hearst Castle, across the street from a beautiful beach,
and 10 minutes from Piedras Blancas beach where the majestic and fascinating elephant seals bask in the sun.
Would I stay here again...most definitely, especially if I am want to get away from city life !!
R and R never felt so good !.

The typical American dirty roadside motel. Bathroom seemed little fresh air. No breakfast, internet barely working. At the edge of their range of mobile telephony. Located in the middle of a tiny town, through which passes over the ocean route No. 1 Nothing special, but for one night can be.

In a good location by Highway 1 and close to Hearst Castle but is a fairly basic hotel. For example, breakfasts are taken at a restaurant next door and the choice of restaurants in San Simeon for an evening meal is also limited.

We are finishing our stay here July 21st 2012. There are very few choices of hotels along highway 1 in this area. I did a lot of research and took a chance. In the last week I have stayed at San Diego Bay Hilton, Sheraton Gateway LAX, Hampton Inn and a couple others. This will tell you how I travel.

The room was very clean. New carpet, no mold in shower, everything was clean. Bed was very basic. They could use new pillows. Walls are thin, but neighbors were asleep quickly. This is rated as a 1 star. I have stayed at Hampton Inns that were tons worse than this. We did not go to the pool, but it looked nice and clean and big and indoors.

All in all this is a safe stop. Dont get your hopes up, just realize it is $130 compared to $230 for a 3 star on this route.

Only negative was the girl at the counter was just a little... not happy maybe. Not bad, just not friendly. Fix that and you will get better reviews. They young guy at the counter was really nice.

The hotel room was nice but the front desk made you feel like you were a criminal she made sure you knew if you stole or damaged any thing you were responsible for it; that is usually a given but she made my daughter feel like she had already violated the agreement.
Utherwise , the room and the pool was great. They did charge me again for the room but when I notifed them i received a credit. But i wonder how many people don't see the charge to request a refund?

I booked two rooms for July 4th evening. $45 (before taxes) for one king bed and $54 for two queen beds.

Spacious and clean rooms, double sink bathroom vanity that located outside of the bathroom, it was convenient for 3-4 persons in one room to share bathroom.

I am glad to stay this hotel.
