Paso Robles to San Simeon

by arios

Hi to all,

I need to know how long is the drive from PR to SS, and how's the road/highway, we will be driving at night (10 pm) from Paso Robles to a hote we found in San Simeon.


Thanks so much for your help, we are going to a car show in Paso, and there's no hotel available close by or in town, so we will be staying in SS.

It is a great road to bad you are driving it at night. I would guess maybe 2 hours max if that. It is a good road, but will be dark. You might also want to check Cambria for hotels (look at Moonstone Beach). It will save you about 30 minutes, but depends on if you are heading north or south when you leave there. If north up the coast then go fro SS if going south then try Cambria or even San Luis Obispo.

Well it could have been awhile since I drove the road. Because mapquest shows from PR to SS is 32 miles and 35 minutes (sure seemed like it took longer), but then I was going to visit in-laws. But that is probably correct and especially at 10:00 PM at night. Still if you are heading north then stay in SS if you heading south try SLO or Santa Maria. I like the Raddison at the airport in SM.

Why not stay in San Luis Obispo. Lots of hotel/motels, unless Cal Poly is having graduations at that time. Hwy 46 is a very dark, windy road and late at night it is a tense drive. Beautiful in the daytime. Hwy 46 will take about 45 minutes to 1 hour to San Simeon. Hwy 101 to SLO will take about 30 minutes. Even the Pismo Beach area on Hwy 101 is the same mileage as PR to SS, but a safer drive at night.

If you're in San Simeon, go see Hearst Castle, built by William Randolph Hearst. Cost is $24 USD for an adult. There are 5 types of tour, most popular is Tour 1 (Experience Tour).

If you want to feed the squirrels in SS, they're at the 2nd vista point. Right across from blue call box 562.

Travel Tips for San Simeon

Hearst Castle

by SteveOSF

Hearst Castle easily stands out as my favorite thing in San Simeon. The reflecting Roman Pool was spectacular. Although drained, the Neptune Pool was impressive. Imagining what it must have been like to visit here in the 1930s is breathtaking.

Elephant Seals

by yooperprof

Just a few miles north of the village of San Simeon is the Piedras Blancas elephant seal rookery. It's one of several beaches along the California coast where elephant seals come to mate and to molt.

Hearst Castle: This is the...

by keehotee

Hearst Castle: This is the famous mansion home of media magnate William Randolph Hearst, which was constructed in the 1920s on a stretch of rugged ranchland overlooking the coast. The castle is a marvel of varied architectural styles, and is a treasure trove of art and sculpture dating back thousands of years. The general tour comprises the two pools, the billard room, refectory, etc. Other tours include Heart's private chamber and guest houses

San Simeon Tip

by Krystynn

Ah... I don't mind being as rich as the late Mr William Randolph Hearst.

And just to give you a rough idea how HUGE his castle really is... take a look at the photo below! I'm like a tiny little ant next to this magnificent castle!!!

Now, let's spend some time talking about the SHOPPING opportunities here. :-)) (I just know the guys will groan at this recommendation.... But hey, us WOMEN find them important, ya know?).

There's a full range of shops here to entice all visitors... like - retail specialty shops, art galleries, gift and antique shops, clothing stores, novelty and even, mini markets! Oh, and DON'T forget to visit the oldest general store on the west
coast called 'Sebastians'.

check out HEARST CASTLE.

by Krystynn

check out HEARST CASTLE. This is the awesome Roman outdoor pool....

Admission tickets cost: US$10 (for Adults) and US$5 (for children).


The Castle is usually open for tours DAILY, except Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year's Day. You can also choose from FOUR day time tours and one Evening Tour.... The earliest tour starts at 8.20AM in the morning. If my memory didn't fail me, I think we took the 10AM tour (mid-morning).
