This place is atrocious for $200+ or even $50. The bathroom is disgusting. Tub has mold, cracked, and rusted. You have to crack open the window for circulation. The faucet dripped. We had to call the front desk since neither the tv nor telephone worked. The carpet was disgusting and was not vacuumed. I felt icky. SKIP IT!

Clean, neat and recently painted. Good price. Walls are thin, can here snoring, showers from other rooms. Parking is convenient. Water pressure is terrible in the shower. Fast check in procedure. On line didn't see it was a AAA motel. Unable to Use my AAA card because I had already booked the room on line.

Our room was nice and was clean. Single bed, room was small with a nice bath. The room was recently updated and 1 wing was under construction when we stopped. We didn't hear construction but could hear the waves across the street and the maids in the am. Our view was of the courtyard which was ok for us to...

This is the second time I've stayed at the property in last six years. Employees are friendly. The rooms were recently remodeled and look great! If you're looking for a clean hotel near Hearst Castle that is family, couple and dog friendly I recommend you stay here.

Loved the room. It was clean and comfortable. Nice picture window take allows a view of the ocean, even though the ocean is on the other side of the highway. With the window open at night you can hear the waves break. So relaxing. Great restaurant, prices reasonable for motel and restaurant! Close to the castle and Cambria down the...

Good value, but hard beds and could have been a little cleaner. Nice recent remodel with fresh paint and crown molding but tubs was a little dingy and no fan in the bathroom. Wanted to use pool but it had black stuff on the bottom and spa only held 3 people.

The place is nice; it's close to the Hearst Castle and close to the beach. We stayed in the room with a fire place and have partial view of the ocean. The price is affordable. I would stay at this place again when we go back to San Simeon.

We had the king room with a fireplace and were very pleased with the size and balcony. There was a indoor pool and hot tub which was taken over by too many kids for the whole evening the night we stayed. So we didnt use it this trip.But plan on returnimg. There was a huge courtyard with bbq area

I had read about this motel on the internet before we arrived and the reviews were okay. We pulled into town about 7 PM and the guy at the front desk, even though busy, was friendly and helpful. We paid $100.00 for 2 queen beds. The place was spacious for the two of us and very clean.You could hear the...

This was the cheapest motel we stayed in during our two week trip (£30 for 1 night). Able to park behind the room, which was clean and good sized. Large flat screen TV present with cable. Shower and bathroom good. Went to look at pool/tub but both looked a bit grubby, so didn't get in. Drove to Cambria for dinner...
