This place is a joke!! DIRTY, DIRTY, DIRTY. The most awful motel experience of my life. I can't believe they rent rooms out to people what a joke. I suffered by having to pay a $25 cancellation fee for deciding not to stay in that infested room. Don't trust booking.com and don't EVER stay at the SEA GARDEN MOTEL!!!!!! Joke!

It was my first time visiting Pismo Breach and couldn't have spent a better weekend. This hotel, what a fantastic view of the ocean. Clean room, hospitable staff, and again, the VIEW! Very comfortable and just exactly what I was looking for for a weekend getaway.

This motel is the worst that I have stayed so far. The cot was so bad we couldn't sleep at all, it was . Infested with bugs. Smelled so bad. This motel should be taken off from the booking sites lest we will never book through any. The booking sutes should have a minmum standard hotels only in their sites.... More

We got a 'family' room-two bedrooms, have to walk through one to get to the bathroom. Microwave was broken and filthy. Fridge-freezer never been defrosted, full of black mould and broken fittings. Towels were crispy. Wires hanging off walls. Work surface covered in crumbs, dust and the odd hair. I bought cleaning stuff because I couldn't rest with such muck... More

Let's start with the positives.... Very friendly Manager in the office who kindly told us if we heard a 3-5 minute siren it was only an emergency at the local nuclear power plant! Close to the beach. Other than that - filthy, filthy filthy!! Sleep in your car!
