                                The 'feel' of it when we arrived was great. Staff was friendly and helpful. Flowers were beautiful there. Saw a humming bird that fed on the bell flowers for a full 2 mintues about 3' away from us that was like seeing something from natgeo!!! Bed and bedding was great.

                                Stayed in an upstairs room where it was almost too hot and there was no a/C. A fan would be nice in the upstairs rooms.

                                Our newly upgraded room was very comfortable and the decor was tasteful. It was an ocean facing room so it was quiet. I also liked that the windows opened so we could let in the fresh breeze. The breakfast provided with the room was a good value for the money and was served in a nice area of the lobby. Check-in was efficient and fast. Location was good in that it is very easy to find and it is close to Hearst Castle. We would definitely stay there again.

                                One very minor thing that struck me as a little odd: this hotel still issues old fashioned actual room keys as opposed to an electronic card entry key. Perhaps I'm wrong, but I was under the impression that electronic card entry keys provide better security. Other than that, nothing to dislike.

                                Their heated outdoor swimming pool is just super. Ocean view from second floor rooms is awesome. Very stylish interior design.

                                Breakfast could be improved - more fresh fruits / vegetables, vafles

                                Location of hotel and the rooms were nicely appointed.

                                The bed was ok, the right side was not the most comforatble section of the bed.

                                I wish I had stayed in Cambria where the restaurants and shops were. I did not realize that the there was nothing but a few motels in San Simeon. Cambria would have been just as convenient to Hearst Castle.

                                There was a giant spider in our bathroom and the wifi service was out. The breakfast selection was minimal with just yogurt and bagels. The staff were not that friendly or accommodating. Having just arrived from an inn in Carmel with excellent services and amenities at almost half the price, it was disappointing.

                                Very comfortable. Relaxed atmosphere with evening wine bar including board games provided to entertain. Loved the in room fireplace, although it was too warm to use it.

                                This is a 2 story hotel without an elevator, so ask for the 1st floor if you have heavy luggage. Breakfast was fine but the room was a little cramped for the number of people. Was unusually warm for the area and the rooms have a fan but no air. It did get a little warm.

                                The Location was excellent for a stop over to visit the Hearst Castle. Would not stay for any other reason.

                                The "Hotel" does not offer any bellhop service, so we had to carry our heavy luggage up to the second floor ourselves. There were no elevators. They really should not call themselves a hotel. Also, the rooms were not air conditioned and the windows would not open- making it very stale when trying to sleep.

                                The heated outdoor pool

                                I did not like the noise from the other rooms. It was hard to fall asleep my neighbors tv was so loud.

                                It was not bad, but I expected more luxury. However, we arrived rather late, so we would have nothing of it. This hotel was just in the middle between SF and LA, so in the middle of nowhere where the devil says good bye.

                                it was ok

                                For a visit to Hearst Castle, the hotel is very well located. Our view room did have a nice view, and the room was pretty spacious and even included a sink and refrigerator.

                                Our room was the land that maintenance forgot. Nothing that would ruin a stay, just nuisances like blinds that jammed, a fireplace that would not turn on, a bathroom with nowhere -- nowhere -- to hang a towel. It's a mostly nice place that could be very nice if it corrected some basic flaws. It also needs it's own restaurant and bar.

                                Small "boutique type" hotel. Wonderful bedding, ok free breakfast, very close to Hearst Castle.

                                A very uninspired complementary breakfast but it was adequate and more importantly "complementary". Our room was well appointed but a little too warm air conditioning wasn't available and didn't feel safe to open window on first floor at rear of building.

                                Staff was friendly, room more than adequate.

                                Breakfast on the skimpy side. No information about Hearst Castle tours which was strange considering that most of their clientele stay at the hotel because of proximity to this attraction. We arrived on Sunday morning at 10 and was told the tours were all booked until 3pm. We left because we wanted to get to our next destination. It would have been helpful for the staff to ask and then try to assist.

                                Breakfast is not meeting the expectation you may have for such a hotel. The quality of it is not much better like a low budgeted breakfast snack of a motel. Cold cooked eggs, cereals from plastic tray. Plastic cups, knives, forks and spoons. They should add more style and quality to it since this is how not only my day starts. The room rates should allow for this improvement anyway. However, everything else is great.
