Complete Directory: Bed and Breakfasts, Homestays and select small Inns near Hearst Castle San Simeon.
Some of the listings on this page 2 of the Bed and Breakfasts are here because they didn't do as well in the online reviews as the others but this is not to say they are not good; If you didn't find what you were looking for on page 1 have a look, you may find one of these is a perfect fit for you. Also some the lodgings are just on page 2 because they are newer or unique or off-beat, I wanted to make sure you had a complete list of options for consideration.

The Sea Star Guest House
Victoria has been renting out her Cambria Lodge Hill suite she calls “Victoria’s Last Resort” for a couple of years now and all the reviews are excellent. She seems to be marketing what she calls a “Bed and Brunch” to a fringe niche of consumers that are looking for a getaway that is a little out of the ordinary and have the money to pay for it. Beyond the ordinary B&B this is a suite which includes not just the bedroom and bath but a full service kitchen, large entertainment area with a deck and view and whimsical gardens with a patio hot tub. Her décor is out of the ordinary, I would call it “West Hollywood 80’s Retro”; I would wonder how many faux leopards had to die so she could get wall to wall leopard print carpets. Anyway for those looking to walk on the wild side this may be the perfect fit, it looks like it comes with a lot of privacy and room to cut loose. The brunch is no doubt great and to sweeten the deal Victoria is an experienced pastry chef, you get homemade cookies and chocolate truffles. This exemplary lodging doesn’t come cheap though, the most expensive listing here, you pay $275 to $325 plus tax and more if you want dinner or any other extras.
Approximate Accommodations Rates for two persons $275.00-$325.00 pl us tax and extras.

This Hearst Castle lodging is a good distance from Hearst Castle and
the Pacific Coast. The association that makes it special and the reason
it has been included on the Hearst Castle Hotels Website is that it once
belonged to William Randolph Hearst and was in fact Hearst Ranch housing
and Hearst's guest hunting lodge.
If you are the kind of person who enjoys the road less traveled and especially if you are touring in a sports car or motorcycle then the extra curves and mileage to this Hearst Castle lodging will not deter you, (particularly Nacimiento Fergusson Rd. which is one narrow curvy route you can use to get to The Hacienda Guest Lodge by the Fort Hunter Liggett back gate). The inland weather is most often better and the scenery in route between Hearst Castle and The Hacienda is phenomenal.
Julia Morgan, the same architect that designed Hearst Castle planned the Spanish style Hacienda for Hearst in 1929 and Hearst's hunting lodge provided accommodations for Clark Gable, Spencer Tracy, Teddy Roosevelt and Herbert Hoover to name a few.
The prices for lodging at the Hacienda is quite reasonable and there is an adjoining bar/lounge which the hours and days of operation vary depending on the season and how busy they are but it is open Wednesday through Saturday or Sunday 7 PM until 11PM weekdays or till 2AM weekends. The Hacienda Bar has cocktails as well as beer and wine, pool, music, chips, pretzels and such (there is talk of pizza maybe coming); also available on base which can be used by civilians who are Hacienda Guest Lodge patrons are many other recreational facilities there is a restaurant "the Cable Cafe" (open 6AM - 9PM), a sports center, recreation center, swimming pool, bowling alley with dining and a movie theatre which are all on the post and nearby the Hacienda Guest Lodge.
The Hacienda is located on US Fort Hunter Liggett you will be under federal jurisdiction so you should expect extra security, rules and regulations.
The M.W.R. (Morale, Welfare and Recreation) at Fort Hunter Liggett now manages the Hacienda Guest Lodge and the Hacienda Bar but regretfully the Hacienda Restaurant is currently closed as of March 25, 2008; hopefully it will open again sometime (the Hacienda Restaurant Concession is open for private bid; do you want to run a cool restaurant?).
The Mission San Antonio de Padua, the third Spanish Mission in California is a short walk from the Hacienda and is a wonderful place to visit.
The Hacienda has 11 rooms which vary from single rooms with shower and bathrooms down the hall to family rooms to 2 bedroom suites.
Price Range - $45.00 - $135.00

This page is the result of an increasing interest in San Simeon Bed and Breakfasts. Since the closing of Sebastians Bed and Breakfast there really is no Bed and Breakfast in San Simeon. Also there is a lot going on in the Bed and Breakfast Industry in the San Simeon area; there is a growing number of typical Bed and Breakfasts.More people are opening up their residential homes to travelers, a kind of lodging accommodation that some have called Bed and Breakfasts but the new term "Homestay" might be more appropriate to distinguish this type of traveler/vacationer lodging accommodations. These days there many people are trying to make their vacation dollars go further and some are finding that not only do some Bed and Breakfasts and Homestays offer dollar savings but they can offer an enhanced vacation experience. The number of small inns close to San Simeon, mostly on Moonstone Beach Drive has grown ferociously in the recent past and competition has caused some inns to attempt to so set themselves apart and market themselves as Bed and Breakfasts; additionally there aren't many close breakfast options on Moonstone Beach either. So with all options for people looking for a San Simeon Bed and Breakfast I thought it could be good to have all the information on one page for comparison purposes. I gathered up all the interesting options I could find and put them on this page to help you plan your perfect vacation to San Simeon Hearst Castle. The information on this page has been taken from many sources, my personal knowledge of the area and tourist industry, I am a long time resident familiar with the California Central Coast and San Simeon, the internet, the Bed and Breakfasts Homestays and Inns themselves, this information is accurate to the best of my ability and knowledge but the travel industry is in a constant state of flux and any information on this page is subject to change at any time, please check with the authorized representatives of the specific Bed and Breakfast, Homestay, or Inn regarding their information prior to finalizing your Central California Coast your vacation plans. Please do notify the webmaster of any inaccuracies you come across and enjoy your central coast travels and stays at our wonderful Bed and Breakfast establishments. When more San Simeon Bed and Breakfasts are established I will post them on this page.GO TO PAGE - TOP - MIDDLE
