Had a great stay on my Birthday in one of the newly renovated rooms by the rose garden, best location on Moonstone Drive, beautiful property under renovation. Hopefully they'll bring some of service and amenities that The Pelican Suites and Pacifica are known for on Moonstone Drive. Will return again in February to see how it's moving along. 20 yr....

They are in the midst of renovating motel but still managed to provide a wonderful room without a reservation on a holiday weekend. We were surprised to find out they provided a self serve breakfast included in the price. We had waffles bacon and eggs and a great supply of pastries

I stayed in this resort during a recent drive down Route one. The accommodation is clean tidy and charming. The area is very scenic. The location is right on the edge of town making this a quiet resort. Access to the beach is via a beautiful boardwalk. The price included a continental breakfast so overall this is outstanding value. I...

If you're looking for a little nostalgia, and want to experience what it was like to stop at a motel in the 60's-70's, then this is the place. It's campy and dated, and most likely nothing has been updated since it opened...but it's pretty close to Hearst Castle, and better than some of the dumpy motels nearby. If you like...

Reviewed 20 September 2016

Underwhelmed is the feeling that stands out when I reflect on my stay at the San Simeon Pines Resort. The impression that first struck me was that the 'retro chic' appearance of the rooms in website photos does not reflect the rooms, or at least, the room we stayed in (54). Our room did not have the pretty wooden ceilings...

Reviewed 12 September 2016

After reading the reviews on tripadvisor which compared the San Simeon Pines to "The Bates Motel" and recommended it's need for an immediate update, I will admit that I was more than reluctant to stay at this outdated hotel which my sister-in- law had reserved for a family vacation in July. I spent nearly 20 minutes attempting to persuade her...

The motel is a take back to the 1950's. Quaint and in a good location. A little bit quiet because it's on the far end of Moonstone Beach Dr. but everything is in walking distance. The hotel is going through major renovation and it appears that its' keeping it's nostalgic charm with upgrades. Until then, be prepared for service trucks...

I stayed at this hotel for two days over a weekend, and while there was nothing particularly wrong with it, it didn't seem worth the price of $255/night. This is an older, slightly quant hotel, though the rooms have been updated. The small pool was closed for remodeling, and they lacked a hot tub. They describe several of their rooms...

Stayed here for two nights in August. This is a great motor inn from the 50's. Nice quiet rooms, shuffleboard, croquet, 50-yard golf... and right across the street from the ocean (but not much of a view of the water). Only other things worth mentioning is that the rooms need updating (but it seems this is in progress), there is...

“some have very partial ocean view. All have pretty landscape views.”
  • Rooms look exactly as advertised
  • The chairs were a little deep, but a pillow at the back made them more comfortable.
  • A few upstairs rooms, yes you can see the ocean from here
