I read about this hotel in Trip Advisor. I was struck by the strong reviews and we decided to give it a try. The rooms were nicely decorated. Although the outside of the hotel is fairly bland, it is clear they have done some great remodeling. The TV was a nice flat screen; the bed was comfortable; the shower great....

The rooms are updated and clean, the staff is friendly, and although it is across the highway from the ocean, the grounds are quiet and pleasant with a sunny common area. My standard room was a bit tight with a dog, but it's great to find dog-friendly rooms in CA without too steep of a pet fee. It's also nice...

We chose this hotel, in the way to Los Angeles (we were driving the Pacific highway). It's a normal motel, at the side of the road, with rooms big enough and average cleanliness. The price was not high compared to other places and it allowed us a good night sleep.

When I booked the price seemed to be alright but I wish I had spent a little more. The rooms are alright and the are in the process of remodeling a old motel. Indoor pool and jacuzzi, inner courtyard but small noisy and about 3 channels on the tv. I need to remember that you get what you pay for.

Tried going down route 1 but out of luck at Big Sur with bridge down and road closure. Good stopover for Hearst Castle. Clean and tidy with comfortable beds and bathroom. Fridge in room. Swimming pool good fun for my son and father. No restaurant but voucher for money off next door at good restaurant for dinner and breakfast.

Our "non smoking" room STUNK - old cigarette smoke combined with damp/must - kind of stink. Walls are paper thin. Compared to the Quality Inn Suites in S.L.O., where we stayed the next night for the same price, room priced way too high!

I have stayed at another place in San Simeon in the past, and I loved it!! The reason I had to go with this one is, the other place must have realized how awesome they are and raised their prices from last year. This room was tiny, and I was pretty sure I had reserved a room with a bathtub,...

I stayed for two nights and got eaten alive by bed bugs. The room was clean and recently remodeled, the staff was friendly. If it weren't for the bugs I'd give this place a pretty decent review, but being covered in itchy, sore bites, having to stop mid vacation to wash everything and worry about taking them somewhere else has...

“If I didn't have a dog, I'd opt for an upstairs room to eliminate overhead foot noise - seemed to travel more than next door noise. Fortunately, it's an early to bed kind of place. Other than that the rooms and area were quite quiet.”

“King size bed was ok, with a view on the garden....but above the ice machine...and the pool machinery whose noise is permanent...”

“Upstairs is probably best because of noise, and they have a room with a fireplace, though I don't know how to guarantee that one.”
