Coast Riders Inn

Recently remodeled with new owners, and a cool, retro-style edge, the Coast Riders Inn, is making a name for itself, in great customer service and by creating a welcoming environment for our guests.

We offer a comfortable night’s sleep to our weary travelers, with memory foam mattresses and are one of the few establishments that have remote-controlled heating and air conditioning units.

Being situated halfway between Cambria and the Hearst Castle, you can enjoy a slower pace here in San Simeon, yet be close enough to all the action while taking advantage of the quiet in our little area.

With beach access close by, you can get out early to find some treasures or enjoy our phenomenal sunsets in the evenings.

The staff at Coast Riders Inn are here to make your visit to our area easy and comfortable.
