Our Bank Credit Card was billed twice. NOT excellent.

Location is nice. Internet was fast. Front desk was helpful.

No complaints about our stay. Would stay here again!

Very friendly management and staff. We stayed three nights. They upgraded us to an ocean view for no additional charge. Full breakfast was appreciated.

This hotel is about 5 miles from Hearst Castle parking lot. Our room is clean. The bathroom is fine but the sink is outside and counter area is small. There is a restaurant next to the hotel so that’s a plus. Breakfast was good. I don’t mind staying again.

The room was clean but had a strong deodorizing odor which had my wife feeling nauseous. The staff was ok but did have excuses that the ice machine just decided to stop working. When I looked at the ice machine it seems there has not been ice or water in in for weeks. Breakfast was ok. We asked for a 1st floor or ground floor room but were told that was not possible even though we checked in at 4PM before many of the guests. There is no elevator so we had to drag our suitcases up a long staircase. "not so bad is it" was the staff comment which helped me decide to write this review. The bed edge was worn, sloping you off the side of the bed. Overall a poor choice for us and had we noticed "no elevator" being advertised we would have not made this choice.

Location is great. Bathroom looked a little run down

The property was clean, modern and well maintained.

The room is clean and the staff is very friendly. Good service

We enjoyed staying at the hotel, but it would be nicer if it had a cleaner hot tub.

Nice hotel. Nothing fancy, but a good clean room close to Hearst Castle. The restaurant attached is amazing!! Staff was very friendly, and very accommodating. The free breakfast was also amazing, for a free breakfast. Eggs, waffles, sausage, toast, cereal, yogurt, and many other options. When going to Hearst Castle, stay here!!

Great room with fireplace. Across from the beach. Breakfast was fine, need more tables.

The staff at the front desk is very nice but the rooms do NOT have air conditioning. Supposedly it states this on the website but I did NOT see it. To me if you room does not have windows and not considered safe to sleep with sliding glass open then AC should be available. A fan was provided and I took the risk and slept with slider open. The rug was disgusting-stains throughout. The rest of the room was clean and bed very comfortable. Nice breakfast! Just stayed at the Quality Inn in San Luis Obispo a few days before which was excellent, very clean and comfy!!!! Also more expensive 200/night as opposed to 86/night at this QI.

Hotel was about what I would expect at Motel 6 but the view of the ocean is great.

This hotel is conveniently located minutes away from Cambria, Cayucos and Hearst castle. About an hour and twenty mins south of Big Sur (Mcway falls). Rooms are nice and clean. Easy to access. Breakfast is good they serve your standard waffles, muffins & toast. pool area is clean. Staff is friendly and courteous. My one complaint is that the staff has their living quarters right next to the lobby and they seem to cook a lot so the whole hotel hallway and lobby smelled like curry and spices. All in all nice room and worth the price.

The breakfast area did not have enough room or staff to accommodate the people taking advantage of continental breakfast
