Historical Traveler Reviews Ibis Curitiba Batel
Good swimming pool area. Lots to do for the whole family. Beach is at the bottom of the par three golf course. Great place to have the kids learn golf. Rooms were clean and quiet.
AAA Under rated this place
AAA underrated this place Big Time. This motel's grounds are spotless, and located among large pine and cypress trees. Our family had a great time playing croquet and shuffleboard. We can't give a higher recommendation.
Great Place for Kids
There is more to do here than other motels. The secluded atmosphere is what drew us into this motel. We found croquet, shuffleboard, golf, hiking, this place was perfect for us and the kids. The pool is in a protected location and is sparkling clear. The staff was helpful and friendly.
Best Kept Secret in Cambria
The best kept secret in the area. The Pines offers quiet surroundings with trees and well kept gardens, at the best price in Cambria. The small Golf Course is fun, but dry in the summer because of City watering restrictions. You can walk right onto the beach, or stroll over to the bluffs where one can watch a sunset. The motel is located away from all other businesses and you feel like your away from everything. The grounds and rooms are spotless. Wood siding on the buildings is a refreshing change from stucco. We Are Going Back!
Best Place to Stay in Cambria
What a great place to stay. All the rooms are no smoking. We had a great time walking to the beach just off their golf course. The staff was friendly and helpfull, and the roses around the grounds are beautiful. It is a quiet place away from everyone else in the area.
Large very clean rooms.
Great Family Place
We were only at the resort for one day because we were making our way up the coast. We wish we could have stayed longer. Marshall was a very accomodating host. There was so much to do for the kids - a beach walk, nice pool, and the golf course was great because it was very casual and fun if you just want to putt around and teach the kids. The grounds were exceptionally kept - beautiful rose bushes - and an incredible specimen of a Norfolk Pine by the pool. The rooms were clean with all the amenities. We'll be back!
The resort is quite outdated but cozy. Location is great, across from the tidepools and San Simeon State Park. We were warned about the owner after reading the reviews. Upon our departure, the owner was screaming profanities at our party in the parking lot. Guess he had a bad morning...an unfortunate end to our holiday.
Cozy but a bit dated
This hotel was very quaint, I felt as if I were shot back into the 50's, which was sort of cool in a way! The linens/curtains were new, and the furniture was in great shape but was dated. It was very clean and had real wood burning fireplaces ( and the accompaning smell).
There are no sea views but a great path just steps away. They also use chemical-free cleaners. Breakfast is a tiny muffin and juice. It was an ok place to stay. (no hair dyer in room)
GREAT STAY IF THE OWNERS AWAY
We've stayed at the San Simeon maybe five times and three of them were great. Cozy rooms, surf sounds from across the road, great walking paths.Twice though we encountered the owner and you won't find a more surly, rude and unpleasant individual in the business. His employees are constantly apologizing for his demeanor. Friends that we recommended it to encountered the owner on their one and only and never again visit to the San Simeon.We'd go again if we were guaranteed that he would be out of town!
Away from it all
San Simeon Pines is a nice little motel at the very north end of Moonstone Drive in Cambria. It is good for people who don't want to feel "sandwiched in". It sits on very large grounds and even has an outdoor shuffleboard. Across the highway there is a private path to a beach overlook with benches to sit on. The rooms are spartan but clean and quiet. Overall a very good value, less expensive than a lot of the other motels on Moonstone drive.

... beach making hooting noises and finally to the picturesque town of Cambria. We easily find our charming B&B overlooking the Pacific but our room isn't yet ready so we pop into town for a wander round the farmers market and cute shops. Room ready and we just lounge on our outdoor balcony watching the ocean.....ahhhh bliss! ...
As we traveled from Fresno to the PCH, we realized that California is seriously lacking in population in the central part of the state, off the main thoroughfare. We drove from Fresno to Paso Robles without much more than seeing other vehicles and an occasional farm. Much of the land appeared to be seriously lacking in water sources. We did see a portion of the road where a channel had been dug parallel to the roadway ...
... and cute little choir stall - How much Padre?" and the priest thanking God for answering his prayers - he must of thought it was Christmas!!! but money can buy anything - just not taste. English antique silver adorns the Italian dining table, all laid up with Heinz Ketchup bottles and ready to serve Hot dogs.
After leaving the house and exploring the grounds and the vast Pool, we were left with a really odd impression of a man with waaaay too much ...
... very cosmopolitan, the area is called North Beach that' s funny, that's the same name as where I live in Wollongong, but there's no beach here!
I woke up after my very long sleep in the car, all better, with lots if energy and ready to go for a walk to Little Italy.
Our little house had everything we needed even a kettle and a microwave for my meals and a cable car stop just down the road, I liked San Francisco
... while we adjusted to the car and the road rules. We stopped for lunch in Monterey, which had had good reviews from several people. It was a shame we didn't have time to stop longer.
The afternoon's driving was far more spectacular, through the Big Sur, which lived up to the hype. We stayed the night in Cambria, across from the ...
