          It was close to Cambria, our destination and the rate was within the range I was willing to pay. It was also nice that they had a restaurant on site. We did not use it; we had intended to but plans changed. The front desk even provided coupons for the restaurant for a discount off the check if we did eat there.

          The room did not feel as clean to me as other hotels I've stayed in. The decor was cheap and for $95/night, I've stayed in nicer places.

        • Older travelers
          6.2

          The location was very close to Hearst Castle.

          The room was expensive for what you get, having said that it is one of the cheapest places in San Simeon. There's nothing more than a handful of hotels and motels at San Simeon, which appear to be there to service the visitors to Hearst Castle. The room was a bit grubby and had a peculiar smell.

        • Family with children
          6.6

          Good hotel worth the price, close to a beach that is good for night view, you may also enjoy a midnight bonfire. Hotel is also close to elephant seal view point

          Fun karaoke night. Nice view of the ocean from the rooms & the restaurant.

        • Group of friends
          5.0

          Location is good (directly on Highway 1).

          Rooms are very small and expensive! No breakfast, you can buy it at the Restaurant.

        • Family with children
          5.8

          Ocean across the street.

          Hotel was dated. A lot of party people with the liquor store w/in a few hundred feet of the hotel property.
