This hotel was rather sad and dismal. Rooms were small and in need of upgrading. First time I've been to a HIE that did not have a gym. The hot breakfast featured burned omelets. But the saving grace was the new small brew pub just north of the building. Awesome beer. I would actually considering staying at the hotel again... More

This was a good property with friendly staff. The best part of this location was the restaurant nearby I called AJ Spurs. This makes the stay all worthwhile having this restaurant close by. I would recommend this location if you are in the area.

The hotel staff could not have been nicer (front desk, breakfast workers, housekeeping staff). The breakfast was great - good variety and taste. There was plenty of parking. We had a good, solid internet connection. And we enjoyed the clean, spacious room and comfy bed. So lots of good things to note. There has been partial updating (granite at bathroom... More

Our favorite spot in the Pismo Beach area. Easy access to Five Cities, clean rooms, friendly and accommodating staff as usual. For the price, it is fairly a good deal for the area. Have stayed several times for the last 3 years.

I stayed at this Holiday Inn Express during a home remodel and instead of making me smarter, it made me feel dumber for having shelled out so much coin for a substandard stay. Really doesn't measure up to Holiday Inn Express standards. We'll start with the good, and then work our way down. THE GOOD: Breakfast. THE BAD Broken appliances... More

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.
