Went on a 5 hour road trip while visiting Orange County, California up to Hearst Castle and decided to stay over night so I pulled out my phone ran through a few no chain hotels and found Silver Surf Motel. It was a great place, nice and clean near a good roadside restaurant and enjoyed my stay. It was quiet, had good a good sized room and indoor heated pool. It's located opposite side of the ocean and was pretty good for the price.

This is the second time we've stayed at Silver Surf and they don't disappoint. They're affordable, helpful, and good value for money. Very convenient if you're trying to visit Hearst castle, or just looking for elephant seals. Would definitely recommend.

I stayed at the Silver Surf Motel while passing through San Simeon, California for one night. I am pretty sure the rooms have been recently renovated and they were nicely done, although there wasn't any sort of fan or anything to block out noise from the outside. Also, the room is far overpriced for what you get...$222 for one night, with no complimentary breakfast, I think one can do better.

bed was nice, room was clean, yard is a bit of a mess, lobby is clean and welcoming. took a while to check in and no one was there when I checked out so I did not get a receipt-they did not answer the bell either.

I was shocked when I realized there was Newly remodeled room with no ac? However, even in the middle of summer with just opening the window, the room was cool. Very convenient location, close to Big Sur (the South end) Hearst Castle and Elephant Seals.

Room Tip: No drawers to put clothing away. You will live off your suitcase. Also, kitchenette with lots of storage space, but no plates and utensils.
