Checked in here late February for a one night visit. We were pleasantly surprised with the lodge. The hotel was quiet and the room a descent size. Washrooms need to be updated. But the bed was very comfortable. For what you are paying, this lodge is well worth it. Yes, it's out of date, and the room a bit musty...

The San Simeon Lodge is a great location and reasonably priced. We were near Hearst Castle, Elephant Seal Rookery, Moonstone Beach and Cambria. Some of the light fixtures did not work and rooms could use some updating. The staff was great and we had a good time.

Room smelled bad. Everything is well worn. A tired place. Could have done better. Room showed as last room available, but clearly the place was less than half full. Is this some kind of a marketing trick?

Purchased this hotel, last minute, on Hotwire for a Hearst visit. Drove down on a Friday night from Bay area and happy to see they had a little bar/restaurant so we could grab a quick dinner after a longish drive. The desk staff was super welcoming! Renovated lobby was really cute! The room was not big, but it was very...

This facility is conveniently located within 7 miles of Hearst Castle and right across from the beach. Parking is available right outside or close to the rooms. The room we had was clean, had partial Ocean view, no air but heater, shower but no bathtub, refrigerator, lots of storage, small balcony with chairs, was mostly quiet, and in decent repair....

This hotel was by far the one with the best quality/rate we stayed during our 1 month road trip. It's about 70 dollars/night and offers large rooms (we were offered an upgrade because a one bed bedroom didn't accommodate the two cribs needed for our twins) and had a spacious 2 beds room. It was clean and had a porch...

This is a nice seaside motel and a good value. The rooms are nice sized and some have a distance view of the water. There are patio table and chair groupings for socializing. Parking is close, smooth and flat. The front desk staff was courteous and quick. On-site bar, restaurant, mini-store. Pros Location, Price, on-site food and drink Cons No...
