Gross BUT doable for the price and location.

Posted Jul 25, 2015
You can't beat the price and you can walk to the beach. But brace yourself..... we had garbage left in our room and the mildew smell from the bathroom was terrible.

Atende para passar uma noite com preço justo

Posted Jul 20, 2015
Pros: Preço, Tamanho do quarto família para 5 pessoas.
Cons: Limpeza, cordialidade da recepcionista.
Location: A localização é bem no meio da viagem entre San Francisco e Los Angelas. Tem um mercadinho ao lado que tem vários ítens para você comprar.
Pessoal da recepção não é simpático. Quarto estava com um cheiro insuportável de inseticida, fora isso o Hotel atende as necessidades de quem está precisando pernoitar à caminho de Los Angeles ou no sentido de San Francisco.

nahe am Hearst Castle, gut für eine Übernachtung

Posted Jul 19, 2015
Pros: zweckmäßig, nichts besonderes, gute Lage zum Hearst Castle, Frühstück um die Ecke
Location: Hearst Castle, Pacific Highway No. 1
war eine gute Zwischenunterkunft auf der Pacific Highway No. 1 , zwischen San Francisco und Los Angeles, In der Nähe des Hearst Castle; gut gelegen, wenn man dort früh eine Führung gebucht hat, in der Nähe einer Robbenkolonie

Beach close, restaurants are close and convenient

Posted Jul 6, 2015
Pros: Location was convenient for what was planned.
Cons: Chintzy on shampoo and body soap.
Location: Hearst Castle near by. Great place to ret on way to final destinations points North.
Pleasant and comfortable. Was not happy that the shampoo and body soap was not enough for 2 persons.

Dirty and over priced

Posted Jul 5, 2015
The staff only cared about charging me upon arriving and was completely unconcerned about ensuring my stay was uncomfortable. Even when I shared that the room was dirty with spiders hanging off the walls and beer cans behind the tv, they just shrugged it off.

Tourist trap

Posted Jun 7, 2015
We booked because of its closeness to Hearst Castle. If we had known what it was like we would have driven an extra half hour to Cambria! And not cheap for what you get, which is nothing.

Close to Beach but Cramped

Posted May 25, 2015
We had a small room with an even smaller bathroom. The wifi was also really choppy and unreliable.

Basic accommodations.

Posted May 23, 2015
Location: Not the hotels fault, but San Simeon could use a gas station.
Extremely loud exhaust fan in bathroom. Marginally functional shower. Only stayed one night on our way to Big Sur. Accommodations were adequate for our needs. Would not stay here any length of time.

Accessible Hotel and right about mid-way on CA-1

Posted May 18, 2015
Pros: Parking and expanse of hotel space, considering the reasonable fare
Cons: Probably the shower; Rest is good
Location: The elephant seals (out of 4 vista point, 2nd one while coming from north towards south is the best one); and of course the Hearst Castle
Good bed, spacious room and very handy delivery menu of various food options around San Simeon
