There are hotels across the highway on the beach for triple the cost of this motel. But can't beat the value. And really the beach is not that far anyway.

We stayed here for one night and the motel was exactly what we needed. Big room with plenty of space to put our baby bed for our 11 month old (we actually put him in the walk in wardrobe!). Nice view of the ocean and a lovely sunset. Plenty of parking and free wifi. No free breakfast but coffe maker in the room and a mini mart on site.

Nothing to do in San Simeon but we stayed to go to Hearst Castle and see the Elephant Seals which were both excellent.

A good value hotel. The room had 2 beds and plenty of space for a 1 year old to run around.
The restaurant at the hotel isn't good, but it is close. If you can find the energy to drive elsewhere do!

Reviewed 16 November 2011

We stayed here for 1 night in October in a room with 2 queen beds.

Room was clean and spacious and had a great shower. Overall it was a pleasant experience. We ate at the hotel restaurant and afterwards had a few drinks in the attached bar and it was pretty quiet but all good.

We didn't breakfast here though, because it seemed a little overpriced - we popped over to the Cavalier across the road and it was very good.

Room Tip: The Queen had a dividing wall between the beds which offered a little more privacy.
