This was off-season but the price seemed too good to be true, which usually makes me wary. My worries were unfounded - this is an older motel but the room was immaculate. Location was perfect for visiting Hearst Castle and it is right across the highway from the coast. Not many dining options in San Simeon but it is a...

Classic motel. Very reasonably priced for the location. Quick/short walk to the ocean. Some updating to the room. A bit musty, but I expect it would be impossible to avoid mustiness so near to the ocean. Small patio adjacent to room, walled for privacy. Had some problems with wifi connectivity.

Great little seaside hotel for a weekend getaway. Very close to Hearst Castle and Elephant Seals Viewing Area. The only minor issue I've found is that the cleaning staff does not speak English. We had missed cleaning service due to our DO NOT DISTURB sign being placed on the door, and the hotel does not provide cleaning service after 1pm....

The room was clean, however 3 lights didn't work (2 in the center of the beds) and I had to leave the light on by the door to read in bed. The pool was clean, but the fence around the pool is rotting with rust and there isn't very much room to sit inside by the pool. The beds were...

We loved our stay at San Simeon lodge. The staff were friendly, our room was very clean and we had a great meal at the attached restaurant. For about $50 for one night (including tax) we thought it was great value too.

We travelled with friends and booked two rooms. We got lucky with ours because the bathroom was completely renovated, theirs was completely gross. Overall the room was clean and ok for a night's sleep.

This motel is clean and well run. Facilities have been updated and is a good budget hotel. It loses a star because the restaurant is very poor - possibly the worst cooked breakfast I have ever had in the USA. Nonetheless the room is well worth a stop - just eat somewhere else.

Good value for money standard motel. No more no less. Very close to beach and elephant seal rookery. Close to main highway but no noise issues. Couple of shops close by to get basic supplies. That's all.

I booked this location because it was rated 2nd for San Simeon lodgings. I expected a much better experience. First off the property did not appear any worse off then other lodging establishments I saw so I was very hopeful. That changed as soon as I entered into my first floor room. Almost immediately I was greeted by heavy walking...

Ok, so my first review was not all that positive. But I came back for a second stay; honestly the price cannot be beat and the location is perfect. It has all the amenities, and I really enjoy visiting with the staff. The food is mediocre. The property has a restaurant, mini-mart and bar. The only thing is that the...
