Great first class place off the Pismo Beach mainstream. Graver Beach is a great intermediate stop form Santa Cruz to LA. Had a great stay, although it's an older property. Staff very courteous and knowledgeable. Good suggestion to local dining!

I would have rated the hotel higher if it wasn't for the troubles we had while checking in. For some reason the front desk employee could not find my name and despite my e-mail proof that the reservation was made properly through hotwire he would not bother to help me any further. After asking for the manager he would let... More

This is an older property but nicely kept. Built on a hill with several buildings. Two story buildings, with each floor accessible like a first floor. Drive around back of the buildings and the 2nd floor becomes the 1st. Rooms are nice, beds average. The breakfast was well stocked, even with a crowd of hungry tourists. Friendly staff. We did...

The hotel is ok for short stays, but a bit off if you want to spend time at the beach. The cleaning wasn't the best with soiled bed sheets. After telling the reception this was fixed, but a fairly big stain in the middle of the sheet is something that the cleaning staff should see right away. The breakfast is... More

This is a great location if you are travelling along the pacific coast highway. However, this is way below the standard of any Holiday inn Express that I have stayed in before. The rooms are set out in different blocks form the reception area, and are very quiet. The whole hotel was very quiet whilst we were there, apart form... More

We stopped off here on the way to San Francisco from LA. Very nice quiet rooms. Ate out at the restaurant next door which was quite an experience . Staff very helpful. Breakfast was fine. Parking easy.

I was in the 2nd floor and it was great. The one problem I had was the traffic noise that came from the freeway. The another reason you can stay here is that hey have friendly staff and everyone is saying "Hi". I would recommend this hotel.

This hotel is nice and a very decent place to stay. The staff at the front desk was helpful and gave us a 10% off coupon for the steakhouse next door. The hotel is as they say, freeway close. But it's all good. I'd stay there again. The pool and jacuzzi are nice.
