This is a well-maintained motel near Hearst Castle. We had a "garden view" room, which I generally don't expect to have much more than a couple flowers. The room had a sliding glass door which led to the pretty garden. This really gave the hotel a nice feel. The front desk (seemed like one couple runs this) was very nice and welcoming. The room was also equipped with a fridge and a microwave. The area surrounding the hotel, including Cambria, does not have fast food. So we ate one meal a day out and used our microwave to cook the other meal that day.
We enjoyed the complimentary breakfast in the morning (waffles, oatmeal, fruit, pastries, etc....). When the woman who runs the place saw our children she rushed off to find some hot chocolate packets just for them. The Jacuzzi/ Pool area was very nice. It would have been better if the pool was heated too since San Simeon is not known for its hot weather.More
