I stayed here for just one night with some friends while on a charter bus trip. On the slightly negative side, the pillows were a bit too squishy for me, and the coffee machine didn't work right and made a mess all over the sink. Also, the on-site restaurant was quite mediocre and I have a separate review about that. No gift shop on premises either.
However, there are lots of positives: nice room, cable TV, good vanity area, decent bathroom, full length mirror, alarm clock, not too much noise, and a lovely view of the ocean. You can walk just a few yards down to the rocky beach from the hotel. Also, you can make a short drive up to the Hearst Castle visitors center and then to the castle tour buses, or see the elephant seals in January when they arrive at San Simeon. Also close to Cambria.
We were able to get decent free coffee in the lobby.
