My wife and I were in San Simeon for a wedding and stayed at The Morgan. Clean, fairly quiet, walking distance to the ocean and local restaurants. Just a few minutes from Hearst Castle and other attractions. In room fireplace and the sounds of the waves made for peaceful evenings. Continental breakfast was nice. For a fee, it is also... More

This hotel is very convenient to San Simeon and to the seal viewing area. The rooms were clean and acceptable. I had 2 complaints about this hotel. There was no elevator to the second floor. This wouldn't have been a big deal except we had heavy bags to drag up a flight of steps. My second issue with the place... More

The staff at this hotel was helpful and friendly. Our room featured Julia Morgan design art work. More of Julia Morgan's architectural designs graced the hallways (She was the architect for Hearst Castle, etc.) Loved it. Breakfast was adequate although we would add real oatmeal and bananas. The Morgan is a great hotel for home base when visiting Hearst Castle... More

I've stayed at the Morgan twice now. The rooms are quaint, they have a wine hour for the guests. The breakfast was simple but decent. I am not a huge breakfast eater, so yogurt and some bread is perfect for me as long as I have endless coffee. We had an upstairs room with a nice view. Definitely nicer hotel... More

When checking in, I was asked if I was traveling with a pet. I said, "Yes, but he sleeps in my car." I was told that people sometimes say that, but then bring their dogs into their rooms. So, everybody pays $25 or if you like and they find out you have a dog, you pay $150! The carpets in... More

Beds are just not that comfortable and there is an obvious huge rubber sheet or pad just underneath the sheet. Be aware there is no air conditioning. There is a ceiling fan and luckily we did not need the the AC when we traveled this time around. Room was clean. Could do with one more chair in there as there... More

We were only here for one night. The room is comfortable and a good location to head back to LA from sight seeing Big Sur. The staff is warm and friendly. The complimentary breakfast was ok. Just glad there was coffee.

The hotel has 2 buildings. We got a room at the second one (without the reception). It was horrible, old and noisy. Every time other rooms opened the water it made a loud noise. It looked like the other building is newer and modern.

Quite large room with a view (and sound) to the Pacific. Simple but nice breakfast. No restaurants or any other facilities at the hotel, except for a small but OK pool. Very good Mexican restaurant just outside. Don't expect too much from the reception staff.
