Reviewed 23 October 2017

This was a beautiful hotel in a lovely setting. The lobby and rooms were very attractive and clean and the hotel staff extremely helpful and pleasant. The breakfast area was stocked with a nice selection of items. I would definitely stay here again if I had the opportunity and would certainly highly recommend this facility. I don't think you'd be disappointed. Just one point worth mentioning is that it is not air conditioned. There is a fan in the room and the windows do open. However, since we stayed here in the middle of October and had the window open at night, we were quite comfortable.

We had a great room overlooking the ocean—and even used our gas log fireplace! The breakfast room had plenty of space. We did have to walk up the stairs one flight to our room, but a staff person carried our bags.

The general areas look reasonable and quite stylish. Once in the room however, my impressions changed quite dramatically. No airconditioning , no safe,tired furnishings and in dire need of updating. Breakfast was quite poor with very little available apart from a limited choice of cakes and tea/ coffee from thermos flasks.
Considering the cost of the stay, I expected much more than this

My husband and I stayed here because we were visiting Hearst Castle the next day and we wanted somewhere romantic to stay. The price was really good and we were not disappointed.

We got a room with an ocean view, and it was very lovely. It had a fireplace, which was nice, and there was a sofa to relax on as I listened to the crashing waves of the ocean. I also thought the little toilet paper rose was a cute touch.

The room was very nice, comfortable bed. The breakfast buffet was nothing special, and I actually felt the breakfast was beneath the hotel's ambiance, but that is a very minor complaint.

Be warned, if stairs are hard for you just know there is no elevator. Fortunately, it was not an issue for us.

The beach is the a few minutes walk away and the area is very nice. Hearst Castle is just a few minutes drive away and the tourist town of Cambria is also close by.

I wish we could have stayed longer. I found it very relaxing.

Also, as of this writing, if you are coming from the north on highway 1, the road is closed at Big Sur and you will have to take a detour from Monterey.

Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a great, detailed response. You pointed out a good point of improving our breakfast and we are surely in the process. We will await your return and hope you enjoy it just as much, or more. Thank you for warning our readers about the highway! It is set to open later in 2018. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay!

We only stayed one night and is was great. Very clean and warm . Very close to various interesting places like the heart castle, authentic Mexican food (the terrace) and the view from the room was very nice.
