The hotel is located on the beautiful beachfront. We stayed in the ocean front terraces which directly overlook the beach. Checked in on New Year's Eve. Staff organised very friendly. Room was great - a wood heater well appointed comfy beds . Diner had a good menu and food was high quality and very reasonably priced. Very close to Hearst...

This is by far the nicest hotel in CA. The staff as well as the rooms are awesome. So nice to walk out as the sun is going down and hear the waves crashing on our way to the fire pits. We love this place and travel 6 hours just to spend a night or two here. A real hidden...

We had to leave the bathroom door shut and not breath as we went into the bathroom. It was so bad that we opened the sliding door to air the room. Since it was freezing, the sliding door only stayed open a short time. In all fairness, we could have asked to switch rooms and didn't because we got in...

While the location and the rooms are great, we could not open the sliding door to listen to the ocean because the fireplace smoke from other rooms was so bad it gave us a headache. The other annoying thing was that one of your other guests had dogs and they barked periodically all night. Your guests should not have to...

This hotel is spacious and located perfectly for quiet, calm, beauty of the California Coast and restaurants. A great get-a-way near superb activities. Wineries are nearby, Cambria is local and quaint, and the property is relaxing and well kept.

This is definitely the best hotel in San Simeon. Nice, clean rooms. Fireplace in the room with wood available. Many of the rooms have an amazing view of the ocean that you can enjoy while sitting in a rocking chair on your balcony. Easy access to the beach. Fire pits outside close to the beach are lit every night. Toiletries...

We love this hotel, stay here 2x a year in July and December...and sometimes in between. Beautiful ocean views, good walking beach, dog friendly, comfortable rooms, restaurant on property with better than average food, and a day spa a few feet away...how could it get better?

“Buy better toilet paper. It was rough and thin. Put screens on sliders. Bathroom could be painted fresh. Maybe take off brown bedspread and just use white duvets or sheets, so they can be wash after every visit. Microwaves would be nice. Maybe BBQ for use .”

“This motel is not "elegant", it's a "beach bungalow" type location. The rooms are clean and plain. There is a fireplace, fridge and mini bar. Most rooms have a patio and in the oceanfront rooms you can spend your entire stay just relaxing on it. ”
