Courtesy Inn San Simeon
Ranked #7 of 10 Hotels in San Simeon
Reviewed October 25, 2012

Nothing going on in San Simeon, so there is less to do except long distance beach walking. So if you´re looking for that, this is the place. If not, go ahead to Morro Bay. The Motel rooms are spacious and nice furnitured. Free WIFI, but breakfast not included. Indoor pool available! Staff is straight, but that´s okay for me.

We spend one night in this motel near San Simeon when on a road trip along Highway 1. The motel is located in an area with some other motels and some very (basic) restaurants. It can be a slightly depressing area and if you've the choice and can spend a little more, I recommend staying in Cambria, which is much nicer. However, Courtesy Inn was a decent place, very large room with two comfortable beds, even a view on the Pacific Ocean and all necessary amenities were present, including free wifi. Given the price we paid we were happy customers at Courtesy Inn and if you just need a basic place to stay while enroute, look no further.

My wife and I the older roadside motels and try to stay in them as often as possible. This is one of those. Our room had two large picture windows on separate walls with one of them looking towards the ocean. The room was very clean and had a king size bed and we felt very privileged. After a late visit to Hearst Castle, we were very pleased to be able to obtain a room of this quality.
Unfortunately, the exterior of the motel is quite shabby with a need for new outdoor carpeting and perhaps some more paint. But, don't be deceived by these superficial appearances. It is very good value.

Its located near Hearst Castle, which makes it an ideal stop for highway one vacation cruisers. It is located near the beach (just cross the road), has a couple of restaurants nearby and a small shop. The room was really spaceous, althouh a bit dusty which is my only complaint. All and all, more and better than we expected. I don't agree at all with the negative comments on this priceworthy Motel with a great view!

Lets get one thing straight, this place is a stop off between SF and LA, nothing more. It is a row of hotels and restaurants and a pretty shabby beach. This said though the hotel was nice. Quick check in and out, large room with a very comfy bed, stone age TV though but wasnt there to watch that. The bar attached was nice, had a kareoke event going on and some of the locals turned up who were nothing but friendly and nice. Would i stay here again? No. But thats only because i would drive on the extra few miles to San Luis Obispo.

There was also a good restaurant straight opposite on the other side of the road but the name escapes me now, its nest to the best western on the end of the row.

Our annual group trip to the San Simeon area was a success once again and largely due to the accommodations and friendly staff at the Courtesy Inn! For the price, the rooms are great and the pool area is a bonus. Several restaurants and the beach are within walking distance. We look forward to returning and would recommend this hotel to others.
