Hi, I'm Don the webmaster and travel writer for this site; I have lived here on the coast and have been involved with travel industry most my life, hope you find this Hearst Castle San Simeon California visitor information useful and you enjoy your vacation here.

caution icon for drought related water restrictions ATTN: be aware of the Highway 1 closure north of ragged point near Salmon Creek (Mud Creek Slide PM 8.8); you CAN NOT reach Big Sur directally from San Simeon, they are still making repairs from the fire and rain up there but...
no need to postpone your Hearst Castle Country Vacation because of rain or fire damage...GO NOW!

It is ironic that the central coast’s best weather comes after the busy summer tourist season is over and the crowds are gone and the only people there to enjoy the beautiful days are the locals and a few privileged others. Fall begins here September 22nd and typically during the fall, an area of high pressure builds at the surface over the Great Basin (the area between the Sierra Nevada range to the west and the Rocky Mountains to the east) and begins to dominate Central California coastal weather. These conditions most often produce northeasterly (offshore) winds, especially during the night and morning hours. These winds bring the relatively dry warm air to our shoreline, pushing the marine layer far out to sea, which produces sparkling, clear visibility along our beaches and some of the warmest coastal temperatures of the year.
Some are predicting torrential El Niño driven rains like in 1997-98 it was raining at least once a week from October through December. Still in-between the rains the weather was outstanding. So I would advise you to vacation Hearst Castle country anyway. Beachcombing is more interesting and often rewarding after a good storm has stirred the Pacific all up. So come for an off-season vacation and visit one of our local beaches (click mobile phone icon  for beaches mobile device friendly beaches close to Hearst Castle Pages mobile) if the weather is dreary the sunniest beaches are generally Cayucos and Avila, the southwesterly facing beaches have the best chance of being warmer and sunny and Cambria, Pismo, and Grover Beaches; W. R. Hearst Memorial Beach faces the sunny southeast and the point helps protect it from the ocean breeze; the west facing beaches are more often sunny than the northwesterly facing Beaches of Morro Bay Los Osos and Montaña de Oro. It’s a matter of luck and timing, a sunny summer coast is hit and miss really, I would check the weather and avoid the heavy rain days. One thing I love about the central California coast weather is our large variety of micro-climates (weather choice is a la carte); if the weather where you are at isn't perfect and you want a change, no matter where you're at different weather is not far away. For instance dreary in the morning on the coast you can relax and have a cup of coffee and wait for the fog to lift at one of the many wonderful and unique coastal restaurants, or if you'd rather you can take a warm up wine-tasting side trip inland into Paso Wine Country! And... if you don't think this WINO knows what he's talking about... Wine Enthusiast Magazine calls Hearst Castle Country “California's Highway 1, The Wine-Lovers' Route”. Why not spend a night in wine country? Seven Quails Vineyards Bed & Breakfast in Paso Robles was picked by guests as one of the top 25 B&Bs in the Nation!
If the fine local wines or variety weather choices aren't enough motivation for you to make the trip to Hearst Castle Country maybe you would like to take advantage of the areas outdoor events and activities like shopping at the many, art, and gift galleries by combining your vacation with a special fall event! Fall is an especially peaceful time in Castle Country so why not come and stay at a small all-inclusive resort or nicely located Hearst Castle area motels (mobile icon for San Simeon Cambria favorite motels hotels resorts bed and breakfasts directory: places to stay near Hearst Castle. motels mobile). or bed & breakfasts & also check NEW B&B Page 2 ; one of my favorite Hearst Castle are lodgings is featured: Best Western Cavalier Oceanfront Resort near San Simeon, Rated #1 of motels near Hearst Castle at San Simeon Acres! Learn more about the only San Simeon Motel on the beach, Cavalier Oceanfront Resort on the featured San Simeon Lodging Page.. Morro Bay is also worth a visit and if you enjoy the ocean why not get out on it and go sport fishing with Virg's Landing of Morro Bay who run fishing excursions this time of year; you will likely get your limit. If you are the hardy outdoors sort, now you may be able to get your favorite camp site close to the beach at the closest campground to Hearst Castle, San Simeon Creek Campground. This wonderful state campground is also close to Cambria and the historic village of San Simeon which should be on every visitors must-do list and did you know Sebastian's in old San Simeon now serves Hearst Ranch natural free range beef burgers ($8.50), fish tacos ($6.00) and has Hearst Ranch Wine Tastings but there is no more General Store:( Why not camp, hike & picnic near Hearst Castle San Simeon California? Right now during the off season you may be able to get your favorite spot!

...and visit the castle, first time visitors should take the "Grand Rooms Tour"; but my fall favorite is called “the Evening Tour” available October - December on most Fridays and Saturdays, discription: experience the Castle after sunset as a visitor to the Castle in the 1930s might have; the Evening Tour features period dressed actors and highlights from the Experience, Upper Floors of Casa Grande, and Garden tours. More Hearst Castle Information at the: Relive history: Tour a castle museum article in the Desert Sun.

KEEP IN MIND IF YOU WANT TO VISIT MONTEREY COUNTY'S BIG SUR... Although some Cal State Parks may be closed or limited access most parks and almost all the private businesses will be on adjusted summer 2017 schedules. Many gala Big Sur events are being canceled or postponed because of the fire and excessive rainfall damage. If you're headed Big Sur way check in with www.BigSur.Tips first and get the latest news and information.

Lots of lodging accommodations are available near Hearst Castle but no motels, hotels, or resorts or even a bed & breakfasts are actually in the small historic village of San Simeon anymore.

There are many inns, motels, and some motels that call themselves hotels near Hearst Castle and couple of nice small resorts too but there are actually none real close to Hearst Castle or left in Hearst Castle's old village of San Simeon, and there hasn't been since the early 1900's. Most of the motels are 3 ½ miles to the south of the village of San Simeon in a motel strip town, a couple of PCH frontage road motel rows that locals have always called San Simeon Acres. There are precious few motels near Hearst Castle located north of San Simeon and the unique lodging accommodations offered by the Best Western Cavalier Oceanfront Resort make it the best on either side of San Simeon; it's the only real beach-front motel/resort near the Hearst Castle or San Simeon. Several things set this motel lodging in a world apart from the other motels near Hearst Castle. For one thing the Best Western Cavalier Oceanfront Resort was chosen 2006 Travelers' Choice Award for most romantic place to stay!
Of all San Simeon lodging accommodations only one of the motels near Hearst Castle offers lodging on the edge of the beach, Best Western Cavalier Resort's Motel. The ocean view and views of the California coastline at this motel are breathtaking and the beach is fun and wonderful.

The Best Western Cavalier Oceanfront Resort offers the premier motel in the area near Hearst Castle and all the resort amenities to make your visit to San Simeon, San Simeon's Hearst Castle and the Central California Coast rewarding, memorable and complete.

There are a number of other roadside motels, and mini-resorts that are near Hearst Castle, most in the motel strip town, San Simeon Acres, the San Simeon Lodge, San Simeon Courtesy Inn, Sands Motel, the Morgan at San Simeon and the Silver Surf Motel, are a few but none are all inclusive resorts or have the ocean views or ambiance which compare to the RPI Resort, the beautiful unique Ragged Point Inn and Resort. A few of the things that make the Ragged Point Inn Resort unique are that it is located on a rugged California Coast outcropping on top of a 350 foot cliff providing breathtaking views, it is right on the Pacific Coast Highway 15 miles north of Hearst Castle with more of a Big Sur influence and it is the only hotel motel lodging on the scenic Big Sur Coast that is pet-friendly.
