We have stayed here before, more than 5 years ago, and were pleased to see the nice remodeling they had done in the meantime. Very comfortable beds, pleasant views of the shore and good location for travelers.

In a very peaceful area set back from the sea. Only motels around with restaurants combined within these other motels.
Room clean. Bed comfortable with nice bedding and towels. Toiletries provided. Iron/board also in room.
Breakfast provided in Reception. Was a little cold to use seating area outside so took ours up to room on tray provided. Not lots of choice but enough to start the day.
As not many restaurants nearby would recommend Mexican next door as others have said. We forgot and went to the Cavalier within Great Western . Nothing special .
Would recommend Sea Breeze

This motel may look a bit run-down but after being in the crowded areas for four days, on the PCH from LA, we had our first peaceful sleep here. We got a top floor room that opened towards the sea. So no traffic noise either. Just want to clarify that the sea is a short distance away but you can see the waves and there is hardly any obstruction to the view. We took an evening walk on the cliffs too.

Since it is a motel, the carpets look old and have a stale smell. There is no elevator, which means you have to lug your boxes to the top floor. The room size was good and it was well kept. For some strange reason, the toilet has a small window that opens into the corridor. You can leave it closed but it wasn't too comforting.

The beauty of this place was that at night we left the window open (safety netted) and had a very peaceful sleep listening to the sounds of the waves crashing on the shore. I regret not having stayed here another night just for the sleep quality and the joy of listening to the waves while going to sleep. Breakfast is very basic. There is a very nice Mexican restaurant next door- very authentic and even has a garden seating area. This is a perfect place to stay for your visit to Hearst Castle.

Room Tip: Choose a top floor room

Based on Trip Advisor reviews, we booked this motel for a visit to San Simeon. What everyone says is true: not much to look at on the outside, rooms far better than expected on the inside, and breakfast not really worth it. There is a new Motel 6 across the street that has a restaurant that serves a real meal. But this is a fine choice for the area at a price that is reasonable.

Stayed one night san simeon before going to Hearst castle. The sea breeze does not look like much from the outside but inside the rooms are big and clean with effort made to keep them nice although furniture etc is showing signs of wear and tear. Continental breakfast included. Small area outside of reception to eat. Definitely nothing fancy or special but good and decent for the price.

On the outside this place looks like a very average motel, and staff at the reception behaved that way, but the rooms are much nicer than that of the average motel. We really enjoyed staying here. From our room you could see the ocean, which was worth the extra couple of dollars. It's a three-minute walk to the wonderful Moonstone Beach and a 10-minute drive to Cambria. Like other reviewers, I recommend to skip the breakfast: if you're heading north, have breakfast at Ragged Point. They truly have a delicious breakfast.
