This one has a lot going for it - nice rooms well-situated on the ocean and minutes from Hearst Castle. The only drawback - no breakfast (they refer you to the restaurant next door) and we had problems getting the heat setting right. We were there in February and the room was hot all night. Suggest turning on the A/C...

Great location, right next to the beach. Good value, but unfortunately no AC in the room. Even when cool outside, room gets very warm unless the windows are left open. Restaurant on site provides room service, but food so-so. We also got pizza delivered from nearby Cambria which was more satisfying. Good stay in San Simeon due to limited options,...

We booked this hotel a few months ago when planning our California vacation. We were going to be touring the Hearst Castle so wanted a hotel close by. Although we read about cheaper options, we choose this one so we could get a seaside room. We were very happy that we splurged to do so. Our room was on the...

This little gem is the PERFECT spot for a romantic getaway. The beach is right in it's backyard and easily accessible to everyone. We checked in late and found that the toilet wasn't working. They had no other rooms available so the clerk gave us a free night. Toilet was fixed first thing in the morning so all was well....

This hotel works hard to make sure you have everything you need. My family always enjoys their stay. The evening campfires they set up overlooking the ocean make winding down from the day such a pleasure.

Had a wonderful visit at this hotel. The view was awesome, quick access to the beach. Staff was kind and rooms were clean and comfortable. Plan on returning next February, hopefully we will have the same great weather. Beautiful sunset and evening fires by the beach.

When you return to a property that's usually a good sign and we loved this stay as much as the last. Forgetting about the American long weekend we did not book far enough in advance to get an ocean view room but we did get a room, so that was a good thing. The resort was packed but the front...

Wonderful hotel with great views and proximity to the ocean, walking trials and nightly fire pits. Nice restaurant on the property. Try to reserve an ocean view room. Probably foggy in the summer but beautiful weather in February when we were there.
