Below average, way below
Could not find other hotel near Cambria, it was a holiday weekend. The rooms are furnished with cheaplooking furniture. There was a smoke odor in room, even though we requested non-smoking. The bathroom was cold and so outdated. Towels, well my rags have more fluff. No, I would not recommend this hotel.
Always stay here
the silver surf motel has been the good place to stay for our whole family for four years now. the staff is courteous and friendly. the rooms are always very clean and comfortable. the indoor pool and spa are well maintained as are the pleasant grounds.
Great deal...pleasantly surprised
The staff were friendly and helpful..the room was spacious, clean and even had flowered sheets:) We had a package deal so we were a little leary about what the free "dinner" and free breakfast might be. We had Mexican food for dinner which was delicious and a very adequate breakfast the next day. Hearst Castle was great & had NO hassle picking up our tickets there. THANKS we had a GREAT time
This is a great place!
My husband and I have been staying at this motel for 20 years. Some of the rooms are older but we LOVE this place. We never stay anywhere else. The rooms in front are the best!! We are now bringing our 4 year old daughter who loves to sit on the balcony! We recommend this motel to anyone who is going to San Simeon. Staff is always helpful. Love the original art work!
Okay for a one night stay
This motel was adequate for a one night. The walls and ceiling are paper thin and we could hear the people above us walking around in their room! The room was spacious and clean as was the bathroom, however, this is an older motel with no frills.
We were pleasantly surprised. For a AAA 2-Diamond property, the rooms were large, comfortable, quiet, and had all of the usual toiletries and free coffee. The pool was indoors and kept at a comfortable 82 degrees or so. The spa was also quite warm (about 98 degrees) and nice as well.
It wasn't luxurious, but quite decent for the price!
Silver Surf was OK
The view of the ocean from the Silver Surf was OK. You had to go out onto a deck area to see it and the hotels across the highway blocked the ocean view somewhat. The room was OK nothing spectacular but good enough for one night.
They delivered much less than advertised. No ocean view available. Over charged us for extra people, ( the kids ). Did not honor the rates they advertised on the internet. Rooms very small. The only saving grace was that it is in San Simeon.
We had a great time at this hotel. We were really pleased at the location and the type of room. I stayed there on a Saturday night, and was happy that I had made advanced reservations because it was sold out. Our room, on the second floor, had high ceilings and a partial view of the ocean. The room was perfect - it was clean, had a large bathroom and had a tv. Although the hotel is pet friendly, it was still quiet and a great place.
Ants in the beds
Had to sleep in my car. Had to fight for refund with arrogant manager.

... hundreds of elephant seals just lounging on the beach, with a few playing in the surf. We met a volunteer, Jack Morehouse, a retired gentleman who volunteered his time informing visitors about the seals.

A movie in the theatre was offered on the beginnings of the Enchanted Hill which we found very interesting.

... Eventually we found one of the few places that you can stay (and didnt have a no vacancy sign outside) at Gorda by the Sea at the Whale Watchers Inn. After a little negotiation we secured a room for the night. This place was right on the coast overlooking the sea - beautiful if not a little foggy.
