This place needs a remodel terribly! I am surprised with how much they charged us for a weekend night for this place and the poor accommodations offered. The bedding was that thin floral bedding that has probably never been washed and it was nasty. The bathrooms and old and gross and need updating. I was also surprised how tiny the...

We chose this hotel for it's average rating & price, but did not expect the room to be totally sub par!! The room was dirty, even clothes left in room. Not only was the shower moldy, but the shower head was only 5ft high, we didn't realize no AC, but this would have been ok-but no fan either!! Glad this...

We booked tickets for Hearst Castle (cottages and kitchens) on July 11, 2015. We stayed at the lodge and we enjoyed it. The room was not fancy but clean and comfortable. David mentioned that he like the FOX news channel next time we stay there. The lodge was near Hearst Castle and the beach was across the street. What really...

This hotel was ok - nothing fancy but did the trick. Liked the layout of the room with the second queen bed in its own alcove. Bathroom pretty "rustic" - more like a camp shower. Our kids opted out of swimming in the pool (which is rare) it was rather murky. Good food from restaurant next door. Loved being able...

Great place to spend the night after finishing a visit to Hearst Castle while traveling on Hwy 1. The room over looked the pool and allowed for a nice view of the sun set. The bar was nice and there was a mini mart on the property for additional snack supplies. The restaurant was nice and served some great Nachos.

I had much higher expectations. For more than $200/night, I expect toilet paper on a holder, not a loose roll on back of the toilet. I expect towel racks, not a pile of towels in vanity under the sink. I expect no one else's hair in the shower. I booked two rooms far in advance (almost 90 days) and yet...

The room smelled old and musty, I kept the slider open whenever we were in the room. The bedspread must have been from 1975, really ugly. The worst was the shower, it was approx 2 and 1/2 feet square and harvest gold tile. The price was right, the restaurant was good but I wouldn't stay there again.

We spent two weeks driving the Pacific Coast Highway from San Diego to San Francisco and this was a stop before our visit to Hearst Castle and Big Sur. Positives: We stayed in cheap rooms throughout our trip (Motel 6, Super 8, etc.) so that's what we are comparing it to and we LOVED our room at San Simeon Lodge!...

It's clean and the bed was acceptable, we literally stopped here to sleep and it was fine for that. Did have a little look at the restaurant in the morning but seemed a bit run down so decided to grab snacks from the shop and get breakfast on route.
