The San Simeon Best Western is one of the nicest we have ever stayed at. The service was great, the room was exceptional, and the location and views are fantastic. I would stay here any time, and would recommend it to our friends without hesitation. Just a very pleasant place to stay when in that part of California.

We went to tour Hearst Castle and enjoy a little ocean time. We had an ocean view room with a nice view of the surf and sunset. The staff was willing to upgrade us to an ocean front room, but I am allergic to wood smoke and the room was smoky smelling. I didn't use our fireplace but the nightly fire-pit smoke was uncomfortable. Lovely walking paths, beach and sunset. Restaurant was decent. Also nice dining options nearby. The elephant seals this time of year were a bonus.

Room Tip: Second floor balcony ocean front was nice. Ask for one without a light on your balcony if that bothers you. I would have if I'd known.

Paid extra for a sea side view that was partially blocked. Room needed several repairs that were not fixed the first time. Restaurant was very good with very good service. Professional massage was excellent.

A great place to break our journey down the Pacific Coast Highway, after an afternoon at Hearst Castle. Our room was specious and opened onto a beach and barbeque area. Cheap restaurants nearby.

We had a balcony ocean-view room above the long grassy knoll overlooking the bluff. We loved the wood-burning fireplace in the room, and kept the sliding door cracked open to listen to the ocean all night long as we slept. The chipper staff provided unpretentious, courteous, accommodating service. There wasn't a free breakfast, but the restaurant's American-Casual menu was fresh and tasty, and there was no extra charge for room service. The winter rates are a good value given the location, and we can't wait to return here for another visit.
