Room on the garden, hopfully ( I can imagine those who have the rooms on the road or the parking !)

Tried going down route 1 but out of luck at Big Sur with bridge down and road closure. Good stopover for Hearst Castle. Clean and tidy with comfortable beds and bathroom. Fridge in room. Swimming pool good fun for my son and father. No restaurant but voucher for money off next door at good restaurant for dinner and breakfast.

Our "non smoking" room STUNK - old cigarette smoke combined with damp/must - kind of stink. Walls are paper thin. Compared to the Quality Inn Suites in S.L.O., where we stayed the next night for the same price, room priced way too high!

I have stayed at another place in San Simeon in the past, and I loved it!! The reason I had to go with this one is, the other place must have realized how awesome they are and raised their prices from last year. This room was tiny, and I was pretty sure I had reserved a room with a bathtub,...

I stayed for two nights and got eaten alive by bed bugs. The room was clean and recently remodeled, the staff was friendly. If it weren't for the bugs I'd give this place a pretty decent review, but being covered in itchy, sore bites, having to stop mid vacation to wash everything and worry about taking them somewhere else has...

On our busy trip in two days from San Francisco to Los Angeles we decided to rest in San Simeon. We booked the Silver Surf Motel in advance via Bockig.com. As we arrived here, we were overwhelmed! The check in was fast and easy, and the guy on the reception very pleasant. The motel itself is very nice with a...

Clean and recently remodeled room. No frills. No air conditioner so had to leave window open. Bring your own hair dryer. Next door to a great restaurant. Hard mattress and thin pillows. Okay for an overnight as we were traveling.

I saw good reviews and booked a room for one night, I wished I've never done this. That was the messiest room I've ever seen in my life. All blankets had stains on it, the vanity was dirty, and unwashed. We needed an extra bed, they charged me $18 just for a folded bed and what we got was a...

Heater was not working when we arrived. We called at 1015pm after returning from dinner and front desk did not answer. Heater fixed per request Saturday morning. Saturday morning housekeepers did not clean coffee pot or refill coffee station. Toilet was a size good for a small child. Very very low to the floor. Difficult for a 5'7' person with...
