We have been coming to this property for years now. The rooms have recently received new mattresses, which have made it that much more comfortable. We have only ever stayed in the Ocean Front Suites. These have a kitchen that is fully stocked with all the appliances needed to cook, you have a coffee maker, oven, stove, fridge and microwave,... More

I've been visiting Sea Gypsy since I was a child when my parents took me here when I was about 4 or 5. It was their favorite place for a family vacation. Now that I'm in my late 20s with my own family, I still come here, even though I live much further away (san diego). I have fond memories... More

As much as I would love nothing more than to write a review about how badly this place sucked so that I could keep this beautiful gem to myself, I have to be fair! :) I was concerned at first when booking this "motel" because I had seen the outside of the building from one side of the beach in...

Had my wedding on the beach in front of the Sea Gypsy 11/15/14. Best day ever. The hotel worked with us fabulously and put up with some roudy family. The rooms were clean and every time we called for anything they were there for us. Thanks so much Sea Gypsy for making a memory for life!

We were lucky to book the last two rooms available One of the rooms obviously smelled deeply of tobacco which was very off putting Location is good near shops Overall, you get what you pay for Would not stay again

If you prefer a luxury accommodation, this may disappoint. The rooms were clean, the bed comfortable, our view was beautiful. It was nice to have direct access to the beach. Great for families and dogs. Overall an enjoyable stay.

As we look from our terrace at the waves of the ocean, it's another beautiful winter morning in Pismo. To our left, 200 yards away is the pier. To the right, we see the cliffs. The sweeping view is from the Sea Gypsy, first floor. We have our dog, who was welcomed everywhere in Pismo. We have had our coffee... More

Because of the location always liked this motel but after I couldn't sleep on the 3rd night of my trip I found EARWIG BUGS, crawling across my bedspread, on walls, furniture. After using my entire can of disinfectant spray I brought with me, I called front desk at 3:00 A.M. for help. Having moved furniture away from walls, taking my... More
