The hotel staff was very nice, and went out of their way to help us enjoy our stay.
The hotel is older, but clean, and Very close to the sea.
Hearst Castle is close, and so are the elephant seals.
Had a hreat time, wish we cpuld have stayed longer.

After having stayed at the Morgan Hotel, I would say this is definitely a small step down, especially if you don’t get a room with an ocean view. The fixtures and structure are a bit old, although we found everything clean and functional. The staff were friendly and helpful and we had no issues of note. My recommendation would be to check rooms and prices at the Morgan and the Best Western before staying here. Overall average experience.

My husband and I decided at the last minute to do a get away to Cambria for Memorial Day weekend. We knew that the hotels would likely be busy and thus more expensive than normal. We had wanted to stay in Cambria, but due to the prices and availability, we decided that San Simeon would be an okay alternative. From the other reviews it looks like prices are usually way more reasonable on the average weekend. For the Saturday before Memorial Day, we paid $288 total with tax for our room. There were other chain motels around that were a bit cheaper, but this hotel boasted ocean views and a close proximity to the ocean. I thought it would be fun to stay in a local hotel instead of a chain to get some of the local color.

I wouldn't say that we got a lot of bang for our buck. The room was on the top floor and big, and we could see the ocean over the top of some condos in the way. There is no balcony, which wasn't a big deal for us because it was cooler. The hotel is definitely "rustic", but it's been re-done well enough that we didn't really have any major problems. The one main issue I had was that the bed was hard. Like, really hard. My husband likes hard beds and even this was too hard for him. The walls are thin, so if you're a light sleeper, you might have trouble with loud neighbors. We drove down to the road that looked like it headed to the beach, but it's surrounded by a bunch of houses and condos, and it looks like you have to maneuver down a hill between them to get the water. It's a fair hike from the rooms, so if you were imagining a short jaunt out the front door to the beach, that's not the case.

All in all, it would have been a fine place to stay if the price was much cheaper-- which it likely is most other times of the year. Looking back for the holiday weekend, I might have paid a little less and just stayed in the chain hotel, since we didn't really get a ton of local charm or additional perks by staying here.

Great value hotel in ideal distance from both SF and LA! The rooms were spacious and clean. A good choice of restaurant within walking distance is the Mexican nearby the hotel (approx. 200 meters to the North). Best place to watch the sea lions is within a short driving distance on route 1 to the North. The viewpoint is (obviously) on the left with a large parking lot. The distance is about 5-7 miles from the hotel.

Its a very basic motel, a bit old; but does the trick.
I recommand staying in near by Cambria for a more pleasent area.
