Standard room in a fading hotel. Perfectly comfortable beds and the (gas) fireplace in the room gave it some charm. The breakfast included was slightly above average and seemed popular with fellow travellers.

Our stay at the Morgan was very nice. Or room included a nice gas fireplace. We had a view of the ocean over the parking lot and a few houses. The continental breakfast buffet was nice unfortunately, there wasn't enough protein available so we chose to eat elsewhere. The room was decorated beautifully with Julia Morgan drawings from Hearst Castle....

We recently took our two teenage grandsons to Hearst Castle and stayed at the Morgan. The location is perfect--only two miles from the Hearst Castle and the rates are very reasonable. Our room was large, well appointed, very clean and quiet, and our beds were comfortable. The lobby is inviting and the staff are gracious. There are a couple of...

My family spent one night here. The service was excellent and the room was clean. There was a simple continental breakfast in the morning. My only complaint is that the walls are thin and I could hear the guest in the room next door snore for the entire night! I would stay here again and hope for a quieter next...

Quick wknd getaway to visit Big Sur and Monterey. This hotel is on the way back home to LA. We only stayed a night to rest after all the sight seeing. They have a nice pool area, but it was too cold to swim at this time, but overall nice hotel and staff.

For the past 5+ years, we book our stay at The Morgan whenever we plan to spend the weekend in San Simeon. However our stay last night may be the last. Last night we turned on the in-room electric wall heater but noticed the thermostat was not working so the heater would not turn off automatically. I called the front...

Stayed here with family following visit to Hearst Castle. Two ground floor rooms with fireplaces. Beds were comfortable. Could hear waves crashing on beach from bed. Breakfast was underwhelming. Pool was not available to use. Nothing bad to report and nothing great - just so-so okay stay. Would not choose to return for another visit.

We stayed that night to visit Hearst Castle the following morning. The hotel has two buildings- we were located in the second building. The room was comfortable, could use an upgrade but was clean and included a decent continental breakfast.

This hotel is perfect for those who travel with their four legged friends as they accept pets. Comfortable rooms, good location, quiet, and best of all it has a spa. We booked massages for two nights in a row with their qualified and very capable practitioners. It was heaven. Angie, at the front desk, helped book the appointments for us...

Nice stay not to far from the beach but pricey. One of a few hotels along the central coast that is pet friendly. Not enough coffee left in the room just one decaf and one regular. The breakfast was just average with nothing special except that they use real dinnerware. Coffee in these places never are strong enough. Overall the...
