When we visited, the place was clearly undergoing a renovation. I wonder how it has turned out. The old set up was an overpriced and underserved stopover hotel. The place was tired and run on a shoe string. It had some retro charm and at times, the basic service provision seemed in keeping with its simple and rustic setting. However,...

Driving into the driveway, this establishment looked like a regular motel, well I was wrong. The rooms had been redone and they were delightful. The faux cowhide rug, the horse picture on the wall, the tin rooster on the door to the cow horns over the bed all seemed to come together for this European style loving gal for a...

We loved our stay at Oceanpoint. I researched this property carefully on TA before booking, and the TA reviewers were right on the money. Driving up to the property, I was skeptical - it still looks like a typical 1960s motel. The rooms, however, were made over in spectacular style. Crisp, modern, clean, and totally comfortable. The location cannot be...

Wow! Thank you for posting such an awesome review! Oceanpoint Ranch has been designed to merge modern "ranch-chic" guest rooms with the nostalgia of those family-friendly, off the beaten path hideaways that a lot of us remember from family vacations. We are so glad that you enjoyed your visit and we look forward to your next memorable vacation here in...

We have been staying at the San Simeon Pines in Cambria on and off for over 30 years and have enjoyed its comfort, peacefulness and proximity to the coast. When we made reservations for this year we were surprised to see that it was bought and is now the Oceanpoint Ranch. We enjoyed our stay just as much as always,...

Been here over many years, and we were very pleased with the renovation. Attentive staff, so glad it was rescued. Freshly painted exterior, new bedding and interior, nice bathroom, too. Good job, new owners!! Next upgrades will be a restaurant and game room. Bed super comfortable. Read some recent reviews of uncomfortable chairs. I put the throw pillow at back...

I did a review of this property a few years ago and not a very good one. They have since refurbished, redecorated, renamed, and made it great. Our room was newly redecorated, so clean and very nice. The bed was super comfortable, the kind where you can't feel the other person move. Nice. The heater worked so well, the room...

This was the very first hotel we stayed in while our two kids were attending SLO. We enjoyed it then & would probably enjoy it more today. I've read about the changes being made & it sounds VERY nice.

I understand that this property has been recently renovated and I'd have to say they've done a good job! The room was pleasant in its decor, the beds were VERY comfy and the entire property just has a nice vibe. Its probably helpful that it is somewhat removed from the other hotels on Moonstone Beach Drive, which are packed shoulder...

We stayed 2 nights at Oceanpoint Ranch. Our room was very nice, comfortable beds, and nice breakfast. We used the hotel as a home base while visiting the Light station, elephant seal rookery, and Hearst Castle.

  • The chairs were a little deep, but a pillow at the back made them more comfortable.
