Great place to stay

This hotel was a surprise. Not the bad kind, the good kind! Location, location, location, right on the ocean with gentle breezes to give you a feeling of true comfort. It's also the first hotel we have ever stayed in with a real fireplace in the room and a supply of "buffalo chips" (AKA; Duraflame chunks) to burn. Couldn't get a really good fire going but to make up for that there are a couple of fireplaces outside with chairs and all to socialize with others. When we arrived our room was upstairs on the second floor but when the manager say I walked with a cane he found a first floor room and that made it much easier for me to get around. Definatly worth a visit and yes we would go back again!

Nice but not special getaway

It was overall a good stay. When we booked we weren't aware that there was ocean front and ocean view. The photo of the ocean view room looked as if the ocean was close. We were a bit disappointed to be away from the ocean. Also the view from our room (on the far left of the building) was partially of the ocean front building -- not quite what we had in mind. Because we stayed for three nights, we hoped to change to a room more to the middle or right on the second floor instead of ground floor. This was not possible, and they treated us for a bottle champagne to demonstrate good will. But it was nice to have a good bed, a fireplace and a patio -- even though fireplace doesn't use real wood, and it was hard to keep a fire going... We also kept having trouble with the lights, working with touch sensors. But again, it took us only a few minutes to be on the bluffs or on the beach. I enjoyed those walks and then also along Moonstone Beach. We visited Cambria and Harmony, being a bit disappointed. Galleries weren't as interesting as they were 25 years ago. I think next time, we'll stay further North and do our excursions from there, focusing on walks and hikes. I think the hotel is a bit overpriced. On the other hand, you certainly can have a good time there.

Moonstone Gallery in Cambria had the best selection of arts and crafts, more sophisticated, still affordable.

Fantastic stay

Stayed one night here on drive from LA to SF, and it was a wonderful stay. The staff was friendly and room was clean. I booked an ocean view room with balcony (they have rooms that are oceanfront, but I thoroughly enjoyed my category room, and it had a fireplace as well!) Free parking, free wifi, and a Keurig coffee maker were nice amenities. Bathroom and vanity area has good lighting. Short driving distance to Hearst Castle.

What a location!

Right on the water...beautiful sunsets! And great fire pit complete with starter logs and matches all ready to go! Had a fire going in minutes. Met some wonderful people from Australia and Calif.

Great Location

If you like quiet, clean and fantastic views then this is it. I had high expectations and they were all met. If you want to get picky there is no microwave or hot coco. otherwise perfect for a getaway.

Great central location for San Simeon

Chose this hotel to spend the night after an afternoon touring Hearst Castle. Front desk staff were very helpful. Weather was blustery so we didn't get to take advantage of the evening fire pits set up each night along the bluff. Room was comfortable and spacious. Food in restaurant was good.

Perfect Hotel for a Visit to Hearst Castle

Everything about this hotel was great! Only 3 miles to Hearst Castle, a lovely setting, right on the ocean, a lovely room, great hot tub and the best part is sitting by the fire pit in the evening. There is also a wonderful restaurant across the street for dinner - the Manta Rey!

A great place to stay

The room was lovely, you could hear the ocean from inside the room. The staff were professional, helpful and personable. The pillows were even comfortable.
