    The staff at the hotel was great! The swimming pool is heated and the beach is in walking distance! We had a great time and when we had to check out early they were very accommodating!

    San Simeon Lodge was a great place to stay as the rooms were clean and spacious and ours had a lovely view out to the ocean. The pool was heated and open until 10pm and the restaurant served good american comfort food and the staff were all very friendly. As a side note, San Simeon is a very small town consisting only of a general store, post office and many hotels with a few restaurants. We found that it was the perfect place to stay in order for us to explore Hearst Castle. It is also lovely to walk along the beach there and we saw Otters swimming and down the road you can watch Elephant Seals. If you are driving the pch then I would recommend staying a night in San Simeon as its nice and relaxing and Hearst Castle is a must see.

    San Simeon lodge provided the peerfectm stopping point on our trip down Pacific Coast Highway. We were greeted promptly and professionally. It is clear that the owners take great pride in maintaining a older property. They have a nice pool, sauna, workout room, a restaurant with delicious breakfast, and a convenience store on the property. It sits right across the street from the ocean and on a clear day, you will be treated to a beautiful view. Www chose San Simeon because we wanted to see Hearst Castle, which is only 2 miles north on Hwy 1.

    If I were a complainer, I might say I've had better pillows and more attractive furnishings. But seriously ... Who cares?

    The beach was right across the street which is amazing. Cambria is a nice town just minutes away, as is a really nice elephant seal rookery and the Hearst Castle.

    Lacking in some areas, very small town feeling to the point that you have to either drive very far to the supermarket, or buy overpriced convenience store items.

    San Simeon Lodge was clean, friendly, comfortable and had a view of the ocean, which is just across the road. It has its own restaurant and bar on the premises, which meant after a long day of travel, everything we needed was there for us. It was close to Hearst Castle, which we had just visited, and minutes away from a beach of Elephant Seals. I would definitely choose to stay there again.

    We liked that it was close to Hearst Castle, Cambria, and the Elephant seals. We also liked that it had markets and restaurants on site.

    The cost of food from the restaurant was a bit much. The kids meals were $7.95, and when your kids don't eat alot, eight dollars is too much. No dessert even. Adult meals were pricey too. Especially for travelers that have nothing else in the area except for other restaurants that cost the exact same amount.

    You can stay there and have everything you need. Nice room very clean. Restaurant right there good food friendly staff. Convienient location to anything you would need from good food to quick snacks for the room. Heated pool just a great stay...wish we had more time to enjoy... Will definately remember this place for a future trip.

    Nothing about the lodge it was wonderful. Stay away from the mini mart... Go to the little store on the corner of the lot for your snacks.

    Good

    I just stayed at the place because it was close to the Hearst Castle, which is in the middle of nowehere anyway. So if you wanty to get into a wider variety of things, you have to tkae your car. But the place is clean, nice, they have a swimming pool and a nice yard, with cool views of the sunset, and a small gym. I think it was pretty much ok.

    San Simeon Lodge delivers excellent value for your money. You get a clean, WiFi and pool access. The location is great - 5 minutes away from Hearst and Cambria with easy access to the highway.

    The room was dated and stuffy. The heater is old and somewhat hard to control. The shower was terrible - there was absolutely no water pressure (it literally took me 5 minutes to wash my head) and every few minutes it would suddenly turn ice cold.

    We came to San Simeon to see Hearst Castle but found so much more. The restaurant at San Simeon Lodge has excellent food available at very reasonable prices, the rooms are comfortable and the convenience store so handy. It was a delight to explore the local area along the coast where we found delightful scenery and the most charming colony of squirrels at the top of the beach. Overall, this is a magical part of the world and well worth the visit.
