Rooms were clean, beds soft, ocean wonderful. I believe all rooms have a view of the ocean. If you need a downstairs room, be sure and call the hotel direct and make sure they reserve one for you. If you are late arrival and have just made the request on your on-line reservation, you will not get a downstairs room,...

This hotel wonderful place to stay and the staff is wonderful. The restaurant has great food and great service. I rate this hotel and restaurant a number 10 plus. The only thing wrong with this survey is that you make it, (that you must have 200 characters in this portion!) I almost quit the survey because you required that. I...

Here is a great destination motel. It is on the beach with fantastic ocean rooms and balconies. To make it even better there are fire pits the hotel staff light each night. The restaurant provides generous and delicious portions especially breakfast. Their pancake stack could feed two easily, they are huge!

Our two night stay was very pleasant and comfortable. We had a room with 2 queens and the beds, pillows and bedding were excellent. The room was large and the bathroom granite sink area was extra large with plenty of room for toiletries, curling irons, etc. There were plenty of nice towels and extra toiletry items not normally found in...

The hotel is a large property with several buildings. It is located right on the pacific ocean coast near Hearst Castle. There is a connected restaurant with good food and reasonable prices. The hotel is well maintained and operated with a great amount of pride. The fire places located on the bluff are lit each night with chairs for seating.

This property need to upgrade their toliet paper and cheap champagne. Could also use a makeup mirror. The view is excellent. The room seems to have been upgraded somewhat. You never get a welcome back, even though we come every year.

I should've caught on to what the staff was like when I made the reservation. I was trying to be friendly but the guy was kinda rude, very businessy. But whatever, booked the room since all the pictures looked nice, we needed a place to stay on our drive back from San Francisco to LA, we wanted something that would...

Absolutely stay here for more than one night. Close to San Simeon and Hearst Castle, this motel is right on the ocean. It has a sheltered pool, good for when the sea breezes get stronger, and offers three locations for bonfires each night,though the temperature was a bit cool when we visited. There was even a fireplace in our room,...

Wide open space between hotel and cliff, nice paths and outdoor fireplaces. Nice indoor fireplaces; wonderful views of the coast. Very convenient to So. Big Sur, Hearst Castle, Cambria, Cayucos. No A/C and loud, pounding surf made it hard to sleep at night.
