Upon arrival we were greeted with a smile and warm welcome. We asked if we could upgrade to a room with a balcony and a view and we were taken to the one room available and received a nice discount if we took the room. The room was clean and comfortable. We had trouble connecting wireless to the Internet but...

This hotel offers a 2 night package that is not to be missed. In addition to two nights in a very nice room that included fridge, microwave, coffee and inroom safe, we had dinner for 2 at the Manta Rey restaurant (see separate review) and got 2 tickets to the tour of our choice at Hearst's Castle. The package price...

A lovely, relaxing stay at one of my favorite hotels during my 1st USA Trip; thanks so much to the warm, friendly and unbelievably helpful staff for making our stay so very pleasant. The combination of beautiful rooms with good service in the city of San Simeon make this a perfect place to stay.

Noticed an ad in Via Magazine, Quality Inn in San Simeon offered an off season, two night, weekday package for $119 per person, double occupancy. This included two breakfasts and one dinner at their very nice restaurant. It also included two tours of the Hearst Castle, which normally run $24 each. A quick on line check convinced me that the...

The sheets and the comforter were filthy and obviously riddled with bed bugs since my mother and I itched all night until kicking everything off, turning up the heat, and sleeping without a pillow and cover. We barely slept 2 hours all night. And the bedside tables, the dresser, and the table were all dusty with occasional greasy finger prints...

Stay here. I stayed here with my husband and 2 children and I absolutely loved the rooms. Very clean, nice beds, cool television. The pool was the right size for this hotel, the jacuzzi was a little slippery to get into, but it worked. I love that they have the pool, jacuzzi, and fire pit. They also offer free breakfast...

We flew to California on a whim to buy a dream car of my husband. We had a fantastic day driving the Highway 1 down from Monterey and took so long that we missed the chance to see Hearst Castle. So we made an early morning reservation and decided to stay in San Simeon. Somehow I thought it was bigger-...

It was ok for one night if you are going to see Hearst Castle on your way up Pacfic Coast Highway. The rooms are in a motel type building but didn't smell that great, a bit musty. Nice big bed though and the breakfast was ok, included in the price. We did eat at the restaurant because we were too...

We booked the Quality Inn specifically because it was a United partner and my miles were about to expire. I asked for "partial ocean view," but when we got there we found that the "partial" view was no view unless you were a contortionist and that the room balcony looked down on the parking lot. When I returned to the...
