The hotel is nice and very comfortable, is near the Castle and the Sea Elephant beach, is clean and the staff very friendly. For sure I will return there, the bathroom may need some renovation in the future

This was a girl's weekend trip and the room was clean however it was in need of updating. The bed was not comfortable and made a lot of noise when you rolled over.

We were there the week of the Pfeiffer-Big Sur fires in August. The hotel was busy as you would expect but staff was GREAT. Breakfast was great and staff help was abundant. There was a Mexican restaurant next door. I don't recommend it to anyone.

My wife and I were in San Simeon for a wedding and stayed at The Morgan. Clean, fairly quiet, walking distance to the ocean and local restaurants.

This hotel is very convenient to San Simeon and to the seal viewing area. The rooms were clean and acceptable. I had 2 complaints about this hotel. There was no elevator to the second floor. This wouldn't have been a big deal except we had heavy bags to drag up a flight of steps. My second issue with the place...

The staff at this hotel was helpful and friendly. Our room featured Julia Morgan design art work. More of Julia Morgan's architectural designs graced the hallways (She was the architect for Hearst Castle, etc.) Loved it. Breakfast was adequate although we would add real oatmeal and bananas. The Morgan is a great hotel for home base when visiting Hearst Castle...

I've stayed at the Morgan twice now. The rooms are quaint, they have a wine hour for the guests. The breakfast was simple but decent. I am not a huge breakfast eater, so yogurt and some bread is perfect for me as long as I have endless coffee. We had an upstairs room with a nice view. Definitely nicer hotel...

When checking in, I was asked if I was traveling with a pet. I said, "Yes, but he sleeps in my car." I was told that people sometimes say that, but then bring their dogs into their rooms. So, everybody pays $25 or if you like and they find out you have a dog, you pay $150! The carpets in...
