    If you're into nature and the ocean, this is a great place to visit. There are numerous surfing spots. This city is also the home of the Hearst Castle, which holds significant historical values. You can also explore the sea wildlife by watching elephant seals.

    San Simeon is a great spot for quiet relaxation.

    San Simeon is a great spot for quiet relaxation. It's right by the ocean and has several restaurants. It's also just a few minutes drive to Cambria if you want to go for a nice walk on the Moonstone Beach walkway right by the ocean, and then another short drive to Cambria's cute little town.

    The ocean was beautiful.

    The ocean was beautiful. It was great seeing the elephant seals, and all their babies, lots and lots of babies everywhere. Every female seem to have a baby was happy to see the her castle from afar could not take my puppies, so I could not go on the tour. Next time I will go on the tour I will find a pet sitter.

    San Simeon is just one of those cool places that are not...

    San Simeon is just one of those cool places that are not over crowded by people and businesses. Different places to stop and explore along this part of the coastline. Besides having Hearst Castle, you can check out the elephant sea lions area and a lighthouse. Just south of San Simeon you have a quick drive over the Moonstone Beach and another 20 min south you have Morro Bay. I think it is a great place to stay when you don't want to be in one of the bigger beach towns, its a more down to earth place when you want to just be in one of the small cozy towns.

    San Simeon state Beach is perfect for families.

    San Simeon state Beach is perfect for families. It's not crowded like Pismo or windy like Avila. Perfect for families. Affordable restaurant options are limited for large families. None really unless you eat at the mini mart.

    Pacific Coast is one of the few hotels that continues to provide a hot breakfast of eggs and bacon as well as yogurt, cereal, and pastries. The room has a microwave and refrigerator. I usually bring my own food so I appreciate that convenience. The bed is comfortable. The room has hardwood floors and is nicely decorated. Because this hotel is usually the lowest price when I am searching for places to stay thanks to booking.com VIP status, I have booked this hotel at least 5 times in 1.5 years.

    Access to the beachfront walkways, fire pits, gathering areas of the Cavalier Resort next door (its sister property). Enjoyed sitting watching the waves after dinner.

Food was great! Hotel staff w were friendly! Overall great option!

    The spacy rooms had a nice sitting area and terrace with a great sea view. The hotel is well located at a short driving distance to castle Hearst as well as the beaches to see the Sea Lions. A good location to start the CA 1 route south of the road blocks. The restaurant conveniently located at the same resort offer very good options for breakfast and dinner.

    As motels go, this was quite nice. Rooms were spacious and clean, and hotel is well back from the road, so not much traffic noise. In fact all the rooms face the sea. Wifi was also password protected.
