We prefer to stay in Choice Group of Hotels and found this property near Hearst Castle. It very decent and clean. Since the hotel is located between Cambria and Hearst Castle, we liked the way you could go either way to your attraction and is located opposite of the pacific shore which was an add on.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 8 August 2016

Having stayed in top end hotels in NYC and San Francisco, we were very pleased with what the Ramada offers for the price. As a family trying to save some money whilst on a long holiday in the USA, having a fridge, microwave, free wifi and free breakfast makes a massive difference! Breakfast is cereal, hard boiled eggs, sausages, waffles...

I booked because it was a "Choice Hotel" and I have a loyalty card. I actually booked twice having to cancel the first set of dates. The cancellation was handled without problems as was a later re-booking. The room was clean and well maintained. A comfortable king sized bed, a chair & lamp, a desk, TV, refrigerator, etc. All the...

The Pacific Coast Highway (Hwy 1) had been closed just north of Hearst Castle and the relentless rain and fog was making the drive back south difficult in the failing light. Fortunately, there was a small cluster of hotels along the highway at San Simeon and we chose to stop at one whose name we knew and trusted. Being so...

Without a doubt, one of the worst Choice Privileges hotels I have ever stayed in. The front desk staff, is extremely hard to understand over the phone. I ended up needing to change my reservation. I actually had to call Choice Privileges main office number, and have them assist in dealing with the hotel staff. The room. They have replaced...

Qualityinn is a good for overnight stay The rooms are spacious but not clean The breakfast was not that good so be prepared to have your breakfast in cambria town near by. It can be a good option for short stop for sleep.

Lovely hotel with clean rooms and a guest laundry which I am always a fan of! Was overcharged on the room but when I showed the cashier it was promptly fixed! Great place to stay near Hearst Castle! The breakfast was good and had hot food as well as cold!

Not quite a 2 (poor) but barely a 3 (average). The property has the potential to be a great place, it just needs some TLC. The room was good sized but the air was stale. There is a full size screen door but the screen had a large hole in it. When I tried to open it and let some...

This "Quality Inn" has nothing to do with quality and comfort, and should be called "Discomfort Inn". I never had a hotel experience this poor. It started with a lady, whose name tag says "Patricia" overcharging me for the stay. $ 3 - not a big deal, but the post-tax bill I got online was less, and I was wondering....

After reading the reviews I was prepared for the worst. It was clean, large, view of the ocean. It's overpriced but it was last minute. It is a fantastic location. The breakfast was adequate. Just the basics. I
