Beautiful ocean viewfrom nuggetboy
Great place to stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The only downside of this hotel was the lack of breakfast. Breakfast is not included with your room. Of course it is available to purchase at the cavalier restaurant. The food there was very good for both breakfast and lunch.
Of course this hotel is close to the Hearst Castle, but it is also close to the Paso wine valley. If you like wine it is a nice afternoon tour over the mountains to many wineries and their tasting room.
Positives outweigh the minor negativesfrom A TripAdvisor Member
The dinner was terrible - be sure to try another restaurant in the area. Having said that, I did order breakfast by room service there because I was in a rush - the prices are identical to eating in the restaurant which is a nice change from most hotels. The room was clean, the sheets were a little worn but not bad, the bathroom was stocked with a hair dryer, shampoo, conditioner, lotion, soap, mending kit, q-tips and cotton balls. All of the staff were friendly, including those in the restaurant - this is a good place to stay if you're in the area - very close to the castle and where elephant seals mate (in February anyway). The motel also has 2 pools - you'll want to bring a robe if you're visiting in winter - it gets very chilly there. If you're expecting luxury accomodations you will be disappointed - if you're looking for good value with some good perks and friendly staff you'll be very happy. (The newer, more expensive rooms, may be more luxurious if that's important to you.)
Pleasantly surprised!from A TripAdvisor Member
We headed to San Simeon for a weekend during our vacation to San Francisco. I must honestly tell you that the meals we had at the hotel's restaurant were not only the cheapest on our entire trip, but in my opinion the food was the best we had during our stay!
Approximately 100 feet behind the hotel is the ocean. At sunset, fires are made in the outside pits. A nice place to warm up at night. If we ever return again to San Simeon, we wouldn't dream of staying anywhere else!
Nice Place to Stayfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Comfortable. Nice Fireplaces. Gorgeous oceanfront. One of the nicest sunsets I've ever seen. Would stay there again.

Loved the Ocean Front Room With Fire Place, Excellent Hotel.from A TripAdvisor Member
What a bargain!from A TripAdvisor Member
Our room rate was so moderate that we weren't sure what to expect. What we found was a clean, basic accommodation that was certainly adequate for our stay. The thick, thirsty towels were a plus, and there were plenty of them. Didn't have to ask for extras as we usually do in most hotels. It's not a 4-star hotel, but we weren't paying 4-star prices either. The staff was friendly and helpful, and one staff member, in particular, gave us quite a bit of information on the elephant seals that haul out of the water nearby. We loved the idea of the bonfires.
We were there on November 4, 2003, and it was great to go out and sit near the fire on the crisp fall night. Breakfast in the hotel restaurant was also very good. We'd definitely return to this hotel, and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. Apparently, they're in the process of updating all their rooms, so get them at these prices while you can!

Top Local Tips for San Simeon
San Simeon Dining, Nonexistent! For food, you will want to go to Cambria. We were going to have lunch at Hearst Castle, but they are currently doing renovations and there is no restaurant!!! Instead, there are overpriced cafe items sold out of stands, so call beforehand! The Best Western restaurant was only so-so, and lackluster especially for price, so look for food in Cambria. You can't go wrong there. Everyone in San Simeon/Cambria was so friendly, we definitely will be back!
Touring San Simeon We went on both the intro tour (#1) and the bedroom/kitchen tour (#2). I agree that the first is necessary to get the layout of the property. The second tour was much smaller and the guide could give much more information. Since both tours began and ended in the pool area, I thought that they would have a lot of overlap in info, but that was not the case.
Great place to stay when visiting Hearst Castle About 2 or so miles away from Hearst Castle, very quiet, and right on the beach. Also only a mile or so away from Piedras Blancas (sea lion watching)
