The Morgan: The best place to stay in San Simeon

It was simply incredible... amazing...

This is a upscale hotel, one which has seen a few better days, directly on the beach in beautiful San Simeon California. It has this charm... old and rustic. My husband and I spent three very, VERY romantic nights at The Morgan.

It is located right in the middle of the wine growing area. It is not the far from Santa Barbara right on Highway 1.

I have these amazing memories of laying in bed with my sweetie, sipping wine and seeing the incredible California countryside outside of the window.

Fantastically romantic!
Helpful, kind staff
THE BEST night's sleep in a long, long time.
The perfect place to explore that magnificent area and Hearst Castle.
Very clean rooms. Ours had this beautiful wicker furniture which gave the atmosphere....

THERE IS NOTHING - NOTHING AT ALL - I would change about The Morgan! Simply incredible!

Piedras Blancas Motel: Idyllic place right on the sea bluffs

Simple rooms with great views of the ocean waves on one side, majestic highlands and wind-sculpted cypress trees on the other. Only drawback is lack of a restaurant nearby.

The motel/gas station compound is out in the middle of nowhere, yet only 10 miles from San Simeon. There are no developments around it, affording marvelous views in every direction. A few miles south the scenic attraction of Piedras Blancas lighthouse and elephant seal beach awaits.

Several hotels, motels and inns.: Along the beach in San Simeon

The closest that one can stay near Hearst Castle is at San Simeon itself. Here are a series of hotels and motels along the beach that variate in pricelevel and comfort. Nice of the location is the possibility on a eveningwalk along the waterline and - with the right rooms - the sound of the surf at night.
