FALSE ADVERTISEMENT! Make sure the rooms that are booked as OCEAN VIEWS are ACTUALLY OCEAN VIEWS. We were very disappointed. We paid more for an OCEAN VIEW and got a view of the back of other hotels.

Nice inn off of PCH.

Pros: Room size and amenities
Cons: Perhaps better airing-out of the rooms
Location: Just off PCH. Nearest attractions are Hearst Castle a couple of miles south, and an elephant seal viewing area a few miles north.
Room was a good size, ocean view rooms might overstate their view, and the only complaint was that the room didn't smell great. It wasn't terrible, but definitely noticeable. Previous reviews on other sites mentioned a breakfast, but they've stopped that service.

Clean room, close to the beach.

Pros: location and cleanliness of room. Cons: shower shut off and surged on, poor lighting, paper thin walls and no fan to drown out noises from drunk neighbors. Had to play relaxing sounds on phone all night. In room coffee was not drinkable. Pool was dirty.

Excellent value, location

Pros: Location, cleanliness
Location: 4 minutes from Hearst Castle. 30 seconds from the Pacific Ocean.
This hotel has the best location in San Simeon...it is on the ocean side of the highway, unlike every other hotel. In the morning, it was a short walk to the beautiful beach and overlook. It is also next door to a very good Mexican restaurant. I got a huge, clean room, with a view of the ocean. Coffee maker was so-so. Very comfortable mattress, and I had a lovely sleep with the sound of the waves. I could have paid double for elsewhere, and it would only have equaled, or been less, than this hotel experience. Yes, the bathroom is old fashioned, but it is clean.

We will not go back gain

Pros: It is on the shore.
Cons: Change carpet. Make real breakfast.
Hotel room has strong unpresent smells . The breakfast are only a few dry stuff. Except milk, there is no dairy food, no meet, no egg. Consider the cost of $130, it is not worth.

Sea Breeze Inn

Pros: Location was nice. Hotel staff was nice. Ocean view was nice.
Cons: More updating needed, especially in the bathrooms and with the room heating system.
Location: Located in San Simeon. Hearst Castle is nearby as well as a few restaurants and Cambria is just down the road a few miles.
Booked this motel at the last minute for a weekend getaway. Older motel with some updating. Basic rooms. Ours was a king bed on the second floor. Heating system could use updating as well as the bathroom fixtures. Tiny little sink, exhaust fan struggles to keep the steam out. Some rusty fixtures and the bathroom smelled. Some mildew on the curtains as well. Got this room for a good price so you get what you pay for.

San Simeon Inn is not worth the money.

Pros: This hotel is very close to the Elephant Seal Beach.
Cons: The prices need to be reduced or the rooms need to be updated and deep cleaned. It is an older hotel but there is no excuse for uncleanliness.
Upon entering the rooms we noticed an unpleasant smell, sleeping area was clean but dated. The bathroom floor was dirty, mold around the tub, sink and faucets. We were disappointed but did not complain. At one point we heard water hitting our bathroom floor. There was water running down inside the bathroom window, we suspected the room above us was overflowing something. We called the front desk and a man came and inspected and was apologetic and said I will try to get you another room at my Brother's hotel, we are booked. He later reported there was no availability and would only charge us for one room at check out, our party booked two rooms. In the morning my husband saw the same man outside and he offered the same restitution. He said we needed to call Travelocity our booking agent when we got home and then he could offer the full refund. My husband went ahead and called them at that time. A representative called the hotel to confirm and the same employee stated that he would give a 15% discount only, and had never offered a full refund. He also denied seeing the water in the room the night before. Several phone calls back and forth with my husband standing in the lobby in front of the man ended with us receiving a 15% discount of $18.00. This man was clearly not telling the truth and banking that we would not call until we got home. Things happen but at least be truthful. I don't like dishonest people. Drive on to Cambria for better hotels and service.

Value priced accommodations at San Simeon

Pros: Location, cost.
Cons: Carpets are old, bathrooms need to be updated.
Location: Hearst Castle, Moonstone Beach, Hearst Ranch Winery, Cambria and wine tasting.
Since we don't spend a lot of time in the room when we're at the coast, the Sea Breeze worked out fine. Reasonably priced at $140, it was clean and freshly painted. The carpet was a bit tired; the bathroom rather small and worn, but if it's just to get some shut-eye after a day of coastal activity, it was fine. The Morgan next door is much nicer, but usually costs more too. I've stayed at worse places, so if I couldn't get a room at the Morgan, I might stay again.
