... property, from the small cottages that they built to stay in whilst the castle was being built to the main castle and the two pools. The outdoor 'Neptune Pool' started out as a pond, was changed to a pool and then was extended 3 times. It is huge! He continually changed his mind and added more floors and moved the external walls out to make more rooms. The castle has 56 bedrooms and 61 bathrooms and 19 sitting rooms, plus movie theatre etc, it was ...

A Visitor, Some Elephants and a Castle

We wanted to see as much of the coast as possible, so we decided to find a campground every couple of hours as we traveled north. Our next stop was San Simeon State Park, about 45 minutes north of San Luis Obispo. We were extra psyched about this stop because our close friend Olson was able to come Scamp with us for two nights. For probably the first time in our lives, Olson was early and we were late so he was waiting for us when we arrived at the park. ...

... having Clint Eastwood as its mayor. If I ever win the lottery I want to move to Carmel. It is gorgeous! If a town can be described as quaint and cute this is it. It's a very affluent town but it's beautiful. There's one Main Street which runs down the middle with cute little shops, art galleries and a few realtors and if you walk down you get to the beach. A vast curve of clean, golden sand. Very close to shore we saw three dolphins ...

... the soot obscured the arts clarity. For the past several years, there’s one guy (a former history/art professor) hired at quadruple his normal rate to clean the ceiling art and antique Italian woodwork that support it. He cleans about one square foot per day. Why rush.

The Hearst Corporation donated the property (also referred to as San Simeon because of ...

Green eggs but no ham

... are obviously frozen and come in a bag. The water this morning was a greeny colour. Yesterday it was an off yellow. Hence the inability to eat them even though and an egg for breakfast is the best way to go. I am also hanging out for a banana. It is amazing what you miss when you can't get it easily.
We thought since we were near the Napa Valley we should try at least one winery. My book mentioned one that was like a castle - we went there, it was not like a castle and it was ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Silver Surf Motel San Simeon

    Below average, way below

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Pleasantly surprised

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Over priced

    from

    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.

    Great place!

    from

    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.
