My first visit to the Sea Gypsy was in 1987. Went there on a yearly basis into the 90's with the kids. This visit was a long time in coming. The rooms are updated and nice. Lots of room with a wall bed and a nice kitchen area for the beachfront rooms. Access to the beach for a wonderful walk... More

I've stayed here many times since I was a teenager and will continue to come back in the years to come. There's no better value in Pismo. The rooms have looked dated in the past but, I've noticed certain upgrades to the room the made it feel a little more modern. A suite with an ocean view is perfect for... More

Stayed here 4 times in the last 5 years. Gorgeous views. Beach access is easier than some places nearby; i.e, no staircases with 1000 steps. Downtown is walking distance. The rooms I've stayed in had kitchens & a full fridge. Rooms are clean, beds are soft. The sound of the waves at night is extremely relaxing. If only the surf... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times throughout the years and always come back . I like the fact that there's a full kitchen , so we don't have to go out all the time . It's in walking distance to the pier, shopping and dining . The staff has always been great and helpful . There can be rude... More

I'm reviewing this place a second time because my second stay was so much different simply because the room you get matters so much. This time I got a an ocean view studio and it was well worth it. If you're going to spend any time in your room, it is very relaxing to have an oceanfront balcony. Having an... More

We stayed at the hotel during our daughter's graduation from Cal Poly. Not only was the price right but the location was incredible! Right on the beach and walking distance to all the restaurants and bars. Stay here and enjoy the beach, walk the pier AND make you way up for wine tasting, only 15 minutes away.

Interesting place, as it seems part motel/part condo since many rooms are actually owned by others. My mom has been coming here for years, and this was my first time to join her and I'm glad I did. Room pretty basic, but clean and comfortable. Comes with a little kitchen and a nice sized deck. Hit Trader Joes for cheese... More
