Would like a nice place with ocean views. Can you help me? Would like some info on San Simeon and other surrounding areas.
Stay in Morro Bay for better prices, only a few minutes drive to Cambria. Check out the Twin Dolphin Inn. In fact, Morro Bay might even be less expensive than San Luis Obispo which is another area within 30 minutes. The views of the ocean are in Moonstone Beach, Cambria and are all expensive. One I like is the Blue Dlophin Inn. Check it out at website: www.bluedolphininn.com
Much better than Morro Bay is the Motel Six in San Simeon, it's just about four miles north of Cambria. They have one of the best prices around. I'm not sure if any of the rooms have ocean views but their prices are well below100 for two and they a just across the highway from the ocean. The best restaurants, however, are in Cambria.
I just checked the web and it looks like you can book a room midweek at the Best Western Cavalier in San Simeon for71-$239 depending on which discounts you have and whether or not you have a room that faces the ocean. But they are on the ocean side of the highway and the grounds are beautiful.71 is the Senior rate with no ocean view. It looks like you can get an ocean view for about139.
