We stayed at the San Simeon Lodge for one night, on our way up the Pacific Coast Highway and before heading to Hearst Castle. The staff was respectful and helpful. The room was just fine and clean, and the experience was perfectly adequate. It is not a fancy place, but it is just fine for the setting and time frame.

I took a couple of days to explore the coast. Went to the Hearst Castle and wanted to stay someplace close. The San Simeon Lodged got my attention because of good reviews and a great price...that is a rare combination. The property is across from the ocean but with a nice view. I could have stayed on the ocean at...

I was not sure what to expect of this place. The room we stayed in had a ocean front view. It was gorgeous. The room was clean and it was a quiet place. Close to Cambria, cute little town. Walking distance to the beach, mini mart around the corner and plenty of places around to eat. Free wifi...but slow.

We were welcomed very warmly and given an ocean view room with no extra charge. There are washing facilities here and a basic gym too. The room was really clean...

It was getting cold when we checked in so it was the first time of the season that they turned on the heat. The heat was not working well in the first room so we were offered to shift to the one next to it which was fine, except that my bed was not flat. It twisted my bed which...

The room was clean; however, they need to invest in some comfortable beds and pillows. We enjoyed the restaurant with a beautiful view, watched a football game in the bar area. Food was very reasonable compared to other restaurants in the area. All the employees were very nice. I think they upgraded my room to a bigger room and ocean...

Stayed there for a night between the difficule driving conditions along route 1, gave me some time to rest and recover. The room is very clean and quiet, we had that concern before arriving since it seems to close to the road. It turned out to be very convenient location. Few miles south you'll find nice resteraunts and delicious food....
