a couple of minutes from the beach, get down there when google tells you the sunset is due, you wont regret it. Lift is oldskool fashion, and can imagine if the walls could talk here the stories that it would tell!

This hotel is right in the middle of the main hub of Pismo Beach. Our room overlooked a patio area, where you can sit out of the wind, outdoors. Right next door to a cocktail lounge, near restaurants , and on the main walk to the pier. perfect spot for a weekend getaway.

It is an older classic motel. If you want modern conveniences like hair dryers , places to plug in chargers or air conditioners it isn't here. This motel takes you back in time to the simpler life but truly has character and fun for all people. I would stay here again and it is great cause it puts you in... More

I was intrigued about this hotel given its history of hosting Hollywood stars in the 20-30s, and i loved the retro look and location. Unfortunately she is a tired old lady from yesteryear who has been let go a bit. We still enjoyed the great location and friendly staff. I loved the old sliding elevator doors until it broke and...

My husband and I were excited about this place. We were hoping for some nostalgia and charm given that this place was built in the 30s. Pictures of the brick building, quaint courtyard, and wood furniture adorning the bedroom made it seem like we were in for a delightful stay. Our hopes fizzled...The young gentleman who checked us in was... More

This hotel was built in 1937. In the 1940s Hollywood's elite stayed here. It is close to the pier, beach, good places to eat and some nice shops to shop in. We parked our car on Sunday and didn't use it at all again until we got into it to leave a few days later. It has a nostalgic feel... More

Loved the atmosphere and charm; staff was very helpful and the free parking downtown was very nice; would definitely stay here again. We had a king size bed in a suite and could see the beach. Our windows opened and we had a great breeze.

Walk in booking. Got an ocean view out of the window. Free parking. A charming room that was quite large. Has a lounge room and bedroom separated by a bathroom. The gas heater fire place was awesome. Great location close to everything. Lobby was closed when we left.

This is a great location. It is an older hotel, but with that said, it is comfortable and clean. There is no wi-fi in the rooms, only in the lobby. The lobby is nice and spacious. The elevator is old, has the metal accordion gate so watch your fingers. The breakfast in the morning is OK, what you normally see... More

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed here and the first time wasn't so great but I decided to give it another try. Big mistake . We got into our room and the carpet is just absolutely discussing. The carpet in the hallway has a huge stain that leads from the elevator all the way down... More
