Parking is close, smooth and flat. The front desk staff was courteous and quick. On-site bar, restaurant, mini-store. Pros Location, Price, on-site food and drink Cons No...

I was looking for a decent place to stay near Hearst Castle. Bathroom sink was old and dirty, shower had black mildew growing the bottom, floor was sticky. Never again will I set my foot in that joint.

This place was not really what we expected and we have been suprised by the good reviews. The room was somehow dirty with bread crumps and hair from other costumors. You can hear Hy 1 which is right inf ront of the lodge pretty loud (to be fair, after 9 pm no traffic since it is closed until September 2017...

We stayed here in October 2016 on our road trip from San Francisco to Los Angeles. We chose this for the location as we wanted to see the elephant seals. The room was fantastic, very clean and lots of hot water. The sink was a little cracked. There was a coffee maker but no microwave which would have been handy...

My wife and i went here for a quick up the coast trip to visit Hearst Castle. We had booked last minute and were stuck with 2 queens but when we got there we were immediately offered a better room, with a King sized bed and a perfect view.

I must be the most blessed man ever. I can't think of anything that would have made my stay better. The San Simeon Lodge was the perfect place to call home base. I rode up to Ragged Point which was the northern most point because a bridge was out and then down to Cambria for a meal. I took 4...

Great for the price. 60$ for one night, was on the second floor so it was pretty quiet. Close to Hearst Castle and right across from the beach. Didn't try the food here but there's a couple places to eat around the lodge. Nice view from wherever you stay. Balconies were a nice touch. Overall pretty good stay.
