Vandaag stond in het teken van de terugkeer naar basiskamp 1, El Pueblo de la Reina de los Ángeles. Natuurlijk is het allang niet meer dat dorpje met 44 inwoners dat onder die naam gesticht werd in 1781, maar de miljoenenstad Los Angeles (waar de Spaanse oorsprong nog duidelijk terug te vinden is). Naarmate we de stad naderden bleken ze …

Vanmorgen weer vroeg vertrokken, want de heren hadden een belofte in te lossen. Tegenover het golfen stond een bezoek aan een Outlet Center en vandaag was de grote dag. De dames stonden om half zeven al kwiek en vief naast hun bed, terwijl de heren wat meer moeite hadden om eruit te komen. Na een snelle douche nog even snel ontbijten, waarbij we …

Hearst Castle

7th Dec.
After a cold night, even with thermals, we were up at 7.30am, had breakfast and left the rest area heading south. We crossed over to the US1 and headed back to Hearst Castle to see, if this time, they could fit us on a tour. We arrived around 9.45am, went in, chose a tour and managed to catch one at 10am. We chose the Upstairs tour, (there's about 3 or 4 tours to chose from), because we had ...

Ventura to Cambria

After a early morning run on the beach (get us!), we continued our journey along Route 1 through Santa Barbara - a nice town, but very quiet in the winter. We strolled around and took a drive past the Mission.

Population 442......

... sea. We find our motel, having driven past a
sign telling us San Simeon has a population of 442... Pretty much
nothing going on here! Drove to the next biggest town, Cambria for
lunch, this town actually had some shops and a petrol station! The
petrol station also had vacuums so we took advantage of this and
cleaned the inside of the car ready for returning ...

    So So Motor Lodge

    from

    This is just an ok place in a string of hotels in San Simeon. The location is good and it served it's purpose, not knowing if I could reserve a hotel for a Saturday night in high season. There were no vacancies in town at all that night so we were grateful for this place. Room was larger than expected but pretty basic. The indoor pool was fine but the hot tub was disgusting with gross foam floating in it. We were chilled and wanted to soak but not here. It's an alright place to lay your head.

    All around good experience

    from

    Hey Folks,

    I recently was biking down the coast and I stayed at this hotel and I reccomend it. The rooms are good size and the bathrooms are great w/ the two seperated sinks from the shower - this was perfect since 4 of us were staying. There is also a nice indoor pool / spa which was good for relaxing since we were pretty sore. Best of all there was free internet w/ their own computers and Wi-Fi; this was good since I hadn't checked email the whole week.

    The complimentary breakfast was ok, and it consisted of mostly muffins and danishes. Overall, I'd reccomend this hotel.

    No One Home

    from

    We booked the room before we left Wichita, Kansas realizing that we would not have much time in the room. We had tickets for the S.F. Giants game the night before and we had a tour for the Hearst Castle the next day. We left S.F. after the game and figured we would be at the room in time for a good nights rest. Along Hwy 1 our rental car had a flat tire. That took a considerable amount of time, and the road (while I'm sure was very scenic during the day at midnight it was just SLOW. We had difficulty finding the hotel and if not for some folks who worked at Hearst Castle taking us to the motel we would have been even later. Upon arriving at the office (around 2:00 a.m.) we rang the after hours buzzer and no one came. We stayed and knocked on a number of doors to try and raise anyone to no avail. We went accross the street to another motel and they said that they do not have night attendants and they didn't have a phone # either. We had already purchased our Hearst Castle tickets so we didn't want to go on, and after trying two or three hotels around we paid for another room. Because the room was booked on Hotwire we couldn't get a refund. The next morning we went to the motel and told them of our situation. Showed our confirmed reservation. They apologized and said that they couldn't refund the full amount as Hotwire took the funds and then paid them a partial payment. They did give us about 30% of what we had paid, but that along with the cost of the motel where we did say put us well over budget.

    Where's my retainer???

    from

    We booked the Courtesy Inn after browsing the Internet for lodging close to Hearst Castle. The quality of the ground floor double queen room was jus adequate: four walls and a roof. The AC/heater was terribly slow. The toiled needed to be plunged. Towels were clean, but thin and worn-out. The beds were okay, some of the furniture need refreshing. Hair dryer and iron/board in room. Breakfast was lousy, consisting of mini muffins and other small, rather dry baked goods cut in half. The coffee was merely colored water sitting in an airpot, but they had Lipton tea bags. Sugar and powdered creamer. Apple, orange juice and lemonade were also available. Pet-friendly, but we didn't see anyone with pets. You have to cross Hwy 1 to get to the beach. Bar and grill next door. Felt like a safe location.

    Pleasant

    from

    We stayed one night after touring the Heart Castle. Our room was good size and clean. The bed was comfortable. Breakfast was nothing more than donuts and coffee/juice. The a/c fan helped drown out any highway traffic (some rooms are very close to Hwy 1). Overall, good for a nights stay if you are touring the area. Be forwarned though, there are no restaurants in the San Simeon area. The couple that are located inside the local hotels were overpriced for what looked like frozen food. We ended up driving 6 miles back to Cambria to get some pizza.

    Clean and Friendly

    from

    We stayed here for two nights. The staff was very friendly. And the rooms were clean. They seemed to be upgrading. Everything about this hotel was satisfactory. We enjoyed the Indoor pool and spa very much. I would highly recommend this hotel.

    Nothing special

    from

    Stayed here one night, seemed expensive for what it was (weekend rates). Rooms about average, furniture a bit tired in some parts. Breakfast was poor, and the location next to the pool was a bit dubious - with plenty of room in the foyer, that might have been better. Still, when you book ahead, you have to take your chances. You can't win them all.

    Good Value

    from

    This motel is not as bad as the previous reviews suggest. We paid $55/nt for weeknights and around $100 for a weekend (through internet). It is a good value (on weekdays) and a good location.

    Disappointed in Courtesy Inn

    from

    It is a motel that supposedly got new owners and the largest indoor pool in the area. We wouldn't know- since the pool was down for repairs. In fairness they did adjust the rate but only after I overheard a discussion with a potential guest. The bed was surprisingly comfortable but the room felt like a cheap HoJo or Motel 6 type motel. No hairdryers in room and the front desk doesn't answer after 11pm, so you are on your own if you need anything at night. If they are trying to attract higher end tourists they need to make significant changes.

    Dirty windows, leaking air conditioners.

    from

    We had prebooked this motel from a classified directory in San Francisco and the fact that it was a United Airlines vacation recommended motel as near to Hearst Castle. The first thing you noticed that the airconditioning units outside the cabins were leaking and that all the glass in the windows was filthy. They had allocated us an upstairs room although we were travelling with four pieces of luggage.

    When I said that we had asked for a ground level cabin the clerk shrugged and said he had one at the back. It was equally grubby and smelt. Not for us. Reluctantly he cancelled our booking and we drove on to Cambria.
