I gave this a very good rating because there were no problems, it's a basic motel though. The King bed pretty much filled the entire room. The TV worked well & there's a large mini-fridge (!) in the cabinet underneath. The bathroom was more spacious than the bedroom. Nothing to do at night in San Simeon but it was peaceful....

We stayed in a double queen room en route from Long Beach to San Fransisco. The room was clean and of a decent size and the reception was friendly and efficient. There isn't breakfast but you get a 12% off voucher for the cafe opposite.

Entering the lobby I was a bit skeptical, but the room was nice. Clean, lots of light, mini frig and microwave. My little dog was accommodated; he loved the big lawn in the middle of the complex. This made the visit more enjoyable. I do think the pool could use a cleaning,

The hotel for what we paid for was acceptable. We arrived at around 4pm from San Francisco and wanted to crash for the night. We started having a few drinks to chill and realised then that all the places to eat shut at 9pm. There's only around 3 places to eat around the motel. If you can drive south for...

Paper-thin walls. We could hear every sound our neighbors made. Even tapping their toothbrush on the sink. Granted, it was Labor Day weekend and we paid 4x the regular price so we were a little upset at the money we spent for a terrible night's sleep.

CONS: Maintenance issues abound. Coffee pot that was broken. A remote control that was out of batteries. Early check-out at 10:00am. Pool is shallow. PROS: Great location. Nice hot spa. Picnic table everywhere. Nice roof-top porch over-looking Pacific. Friendly staff.

We stayed here the evening before visiting Hearst Castle. The room was large, had a little balcony, good parking close to the room and a large tv. The bathrooms needed a little work, are outdated and the showers only good for short people. The grounds were being improved while we were there. The gentleman at the desk was really friendly...

Bit tired looking but good value. Hotel is right next to a good restaurant where you will get a discount. Good location for the Hearst Castle which unfortunately was closed for our trip due to the wild fires
