Given this was a Hotwire reservation, when we checked it we were automatically given the lowest quality room in the hotel (room 102). I was concerned about the room and before I let the family move our luggage in, I went to check. The room was an 'underground' room where we had to go downstairs (that's a first for me).... More

There's definitely differences within brands! If you can't access photos of rooms, or amenities, you might want to reconsider. Live and learn! We learned a good lesson! The staff was attentive, and polite. Our room was obviously not completely finished. Some type of renovation in progress. Plumbing, screw holes, lousy paint job. ..matress was uncomfortable. ..my wife's back is still... More

A hundred bucks for a large clean room with comfortable beds? Yup. It's a holiday inn... Nothing fancy or "special", but if you're looking for a room right off the highway, near a Starbucks for breakfast, and a mile from the beach, this is a great value.

I reserved a king size room with a fireplace 11 days in advance. Even paid for it in advance. So I shoul get what paid for, right? Nope. We arrived at 3:30, check-in is 3. The king room with the fireplace wouldn't be ready for another hour, would we like to wait? Sure, we'll wait. We return at 4:30. The... More

My stay here was supposed to be three nights but turned into four ... And I did not mind. This is not a new hotel but is well looked after, housekeeping is good and the breakfast service great: best selection of items I have seen in a complimentary breakfast for a long time ( and I've seen a few!)

This was a pleasant and excellent hotel to stay in. Our room was on the third floor facing the highway and all the surrounding homes and businesses. Pretty light show! And we were also overlooking the pretty pool area. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room was very clean and quiet all night. The free breakfast was very good!... More

We needed a hotel for one night on a trip up to Monterey. This Holiday Inn is right off the 101 and the price was right. Front desk clerk was very pleasant and helpful. We were a little early and our room wasn't ready so we were given a different one. We were concerned that it would be noisy since... More

This hotel is about 5 blocks to the beach. There are lots of restaurants in the area. The pool was clean and in a pretty setting. The staff was very helpful. The only thing I would complain about was it could stand to be updated a bit and the carpets are getting worn and a little dirty. I would stay... More

This is a clean, safe, calm, quiet hotel with attentive staff who mean well. Nevertheless, I was quite frustrated by my stay. The electronic card machine was out of order and so every time we wanted to enter our room we had to alert the front desk and request to be let in. Every. Time. Inhale. Exhale. Every. Time. I...

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!
