We recently took a group motorcycle trip to Pismo Beach and Hearst Castle and planned to stay at San Simeon Lodge. Although it's a short overnight pit stop, the bedrooms were nice and clean and the hotel had some nice amenities. The front desk folks were great and helpful after 30+ people checked all at the same time. The lodge...

Hotel is perfect located in San Simeon. The rates are ok. Staff at reception, restaurant and bar is very friendly. View of the sea and beach is just a little bit too far. Near the castle and a beach full of sea elephants.

We stayed there on the way from San Francisco to LA, with no earlier reservation, just stopped and asked for a room. Proce was pretty nice, room very big with everything what was needed. The hotel is almost right at the ocean. It has a nice restaurant. They have also a big parking.

We stayed there 2 couples in a 2 queen room on our way from San Francisco to Los Angeles and it was a great location to stop for one night. Great value!! Very comfortable, big, clean room. Great budget motel. Do book in advance, the price changes substantially.

We stopped here for one night on our way to San Francisco. The location is great, just a mile or so Hearst Castle and Piedras Blancas where we enjoyed visiting with the elephant seal pups.
