“Unbeatable location, light on the wallet.”
Reviewed 13 May 2012

We drove to San Simeon to see Hearst Castle and decided to stay the night. For the unbeatable price of $79, we booked a room to accommodate two adults and three kids, breakfast included. There were hotels on either side of PCH. Days Inn is on the side farther from the beach, which probably explains the price. The room was clean, recently renovated, and quiet. The front desk recommended Big Sur California Cafe for dinner (with 10% off with Days Inn room key). Breakfast was actually decent. There were no hot items, but there was a make-your-own waffle station. It was surprisingly delicious. The pastries, though, were not as fresh as they should be and the coffee was not good. The best part of the stay was the sunset. We drove (although you really could walk, but we did not want the kids to be dodging PCH traffic) across the street to San Simeon beach. It was gorgeous. The location is worth it! There is also a flock of seagulls in the parking lot (plus or minus?...)

Let me start by saying that the breakfast was a GREAT amenity. We are a family of four going to Hearst Castle. We needed a decent place and this worked just fine. The beds were not very comfortable, the wifi didn't work but it was clean and had a nice patio with no chairs. Good for the money. We consider staying again.

We had stayed at Days Inn San Simeon last year sometime and were quite impressed then with the quality and the price., so it was the perfect place to take out-of-state family/company while showing them the California coast. It was not only a great location and but very clean and quiet. They have a pretty good breakfast (waffles, various cereals, juices and breads for toast...). The staff were most helpful and courteous. We'd definitely recommend this place to anyone and will be staying here on another trip.

Room Tip: we stayed both times on the 2nd floor and was quiet, but also had a nice view of the ocean (except i...

Stayed here for one night only and enjoyed it. The Big Sur Restaurant out front was convenient and very good.
The service was good and we were given and ocean view room - pity we couldn't see the ocean due to the ocean mist. The room was clean, breakfast OK and the wifi worked fine.

Driving up the Central California Coast exploring each city in between. Of course seeing the grandeur of them all William Randolph Hearst hidden hideaway. In a town so small and quaint we chose the Days Inn. Much to my surprise it was neat, clean and the staff went out of their way to make our stay a five star quality experience. Zach & Uzma are wonderful, loving, kind & generous people. My only wish is that there would be more to see and do in San Simeon. I would love to have stayed at Days Inn a few more extra days just for the quality of service that was given to me and my family. I'm one to try different hotels/motels/Inns along the way but when we head up North again I will only be staying at Days Inn San Simeon as long as I know Zach & Uzma are still in charge. During out trip up the coast we stayed at many hotels this by far was the best experience, quality and very affordable especially in this state of economic crisis. In others words it doesn't make you feel remorse and getting more for your money was a real eye opener.

Room Tip: Ocean view nice with balcony to enjoy the site.
