  • Older travelers

    Indoor pool and hot tub are fine.

    When making the reservation, in the room description it said the room would have a microwave and a fridge, but it didn'T. I was told those are available only on additional cost and the hotel receptionist claimed providing false information in the description. Our room for three people had towels only for two people.

  • Couple

    good location for seeing Hearst Castle, inside pool

    the bed mattress was uncomfortable, the water level in the hot tub was inadequately low

  • Older travelers

    location. Close to Hearst Castle. Easy access off US 1

    Facilities very old. Beds & pillows not at all comfortable. Rooms need updating!

  • Family with children

    Close to San Simeon and Hearst Castle, clean, family room was extremely roomy and good value, made use of coin operated laundry facilities (dryer lasted long time for 75 cents and dried all our stuff, wash was $2 in quarters) swimming pool and spa pool were central, and very pleasant, tho showers and changing areas not so nice. Beds were comfy, and bathroom fine. Staff helpful when approached and friendly when passed around the motel. A good place for a stopover.

    A limited breakfast was offered but was not that good value or much choice- the alternative was to walk across the highway to the very popular, and rather pricey Cavalier Restaurant, but it served all our needs for breakfast and evening meal, with friendly service and good food.

  • Couple

    Close to elephant seals view point

    Could be cleaner

  • Family with children

    Location was great and the pool and spa were also nice. The fact that the pool and spa stay open until 10pm on Saturday nights is great.

    Moldy shower curtains, the telephone did not work, the remote did not work, the double sink was not usable because the small refridgerator was in the way and I could hear foot traffic at 1:45am from the room above and there was no way of getting the management to respond, as the phone did not work and when I called from my cell phone, staff did not answer.

  • Family with children

    Close to the castle...that's about it.

    The staff was not overly friendly and the hot tub smelled like a restroom. Breakfast was non-existent and the bathroom shower sucked. We picked it for price and location...close to the castle. I would not stay there again unless I had to.

  • Older travelers

    Convenience to the beach and family

    The web site offered a conteniental breakfast... No longer available, it should be pulled from site... Disappointing and deceptive

  • Family with children

    The most important reason being it was close to our vacation outing of going to Heaarst Castle; and the price being most reasonable. Plus it was clean--the only thing that we did not like was that on the web page where I made the reservation--it stated that a continental breakfast was offered--when we arrived we were told that there was a $7.00 breakfast instead. Your web page needs to be corrected because it is not true. That was the only glitch in our travel. Thanks!

  • Older travelers

    The staff was very friendly and professional. They assisted with all of my many questions. The place is adequate for an overnite stay. I appreciated the low price and availability during the busy summer season.

    I was surprised at the amenities. I am a retired manager from a 74 unit motel on the I-5. Amenities are the least of the expenses and the ones at this motel were horrible and scarce. Everything came in a katsup packet style container. The soap lasted for one person, one shower. That means that they are really trying to cut corners. This is one area that dosn't need cutting and wont break the bank, so to speak. Shame on the owners. Also, the place could use a new face lift. Decorations are from the 1970'S. Hopefully they save some of the money from the lack of soaps and remodel.

  • Single

    room clean and comfortable

    bathroom fixtures/decor seemed "dated" considering the price of the room. However, everything functioned OK

  • Family with children

    Very nice hotel, the best choice for staying one night while drving along No. 1 freeway.

  • Group of friends

    Did not like being asked to sign a paper stating if any towels or bedding were stained I would be charged. I refused to sign. Sometimes makeup gets on washcloths - I did not want to be charged for them when they can be washed.

  • Family with children

    The family room was huge with great facilities - a massive bed and 2 further double beds, a microwave and fridge, and an enormous tv. My teenage sons were delighted not to have to share a bed and we all enjoyed the space. It looked very unpromising from the outside so it was a nice surprise.

    The location is good in that it's the first bit of civilisation for about 100 miles after driving down route 1 , but San Simeon isnt a town, it's just a collection of hotels and unimpressive restaurants , overpriced for their captured audience. Had I known the area I would have tried to stay in Cambria, just up the road which is a proper town with a bigger selection of places to eat and is really attractive. However, after the long drive we did appreciate our lovely room.

  • Family with children

    Jessica was a great person very friendly and helpful best customer service. Pool accommodates many people perfect for our large family trips. Loved the ocean view from our room.

    Unfortunately we ran into a very rude person at the reception desk when we went to check in the ladies name starts with a "b" cant remember her name though but worst hospitality & customer service.
