Silver Surf Motel, San Simeon
Good accomodation near Hearst Castle.
Great location for a visit to Hearst Castle and the Elephant seals on the beach. TV difficult to use and no hair dryer. Great pool and spa. On the beach and across from the visitors' center. Only 3 restaurants near by, one giving a 12% discount. It was adequate for our visit.

Never again
Took my grandsons on a birthday weekend and was not happy with this place. We found long black hairs on pillows and in bed, used soap in shower, bed wore out and dipped to the middle. Next to pool and had to ask desk clerk twice to make lol leave pool after 10:00 pm. Was loud and crazy till 10:30 or so. Will not stay here again.

Very Good8.0
The hotel was the perfect distance from the Hearst Castel. It was a comfortable place to stay. The room did smell like someone had been smoking in there. The TV didn't work, had to mess with it for a while to get it fixed and I don't think the remote was working properly had to change channels from the cable box. Over all served it purpose of a place to sleep at the end of the day.

Would stay here again
Rooms were extremely clean and newly remodeled. Beds very comfortable and 4 pillows per bed. Restaurant next door was great! Only problem was shower head was missing and management had not been aware. Likely stolen by prior guest.

Unpleasant experience
The room was spacious and looked clean. We were very happy, until we found there was no hot water. The office closed in the evening and no one answered the “emergency phone”. ( we were calling from 10:30-11:00 pm until 8-9 the next morning. No one was picking up the office phone and the emergency one). Went to office at am- unlocked, but empty, without a life person around. Wander within the building until finally found “ the office staff” having breakfast in one or the motel rooms. Waited for another hours to get the heather fixed and warmed... Being late for our tour at the Castle asked for another room to use the shower only. Not a pleasant experience at all. The area is very unattractive also.
