Hotel is in the middle of Pismo Beach, within walking distance of Ocean, and Pier. Great location for restaurants, and shops. Rooms were clean,and quiet. If you are eating locally try Rosa's next door, for great Italian food. If you have more time and want a steak of a lifetime drive to Nipomo and stop at Jocko's.... worth the 20... More

My first experiance of a motel and a very good one at that. We payed £60 for the night and the room was very, very clean (and I'm fussy) with all mod cons, fridge, iron, hair dryer etc. Parking is free, and it's 5 mins to the beach. If your staying here go to the lake 15 mins drive away.... More

We booked this motel as a stop over from LA to Monterey and it was everything we needed - clean, free parking, close (but not too close) to the highway and also to some restaurants/shops in Pismo Beach. After a long drive we decided to walk into the town centre to get some dinner and enjoy the sunset, this took... More

if you're looking for a place to spend the night without breaking the bank, Ocean Palms is fine. We paid a total of $83 for a 2nd floor king room. It was plenty big enough, had a vaulted ceiling, with a small room off the bathroom with a large mirror, counter, micro, and fridge. The bathroom was a bit small,... More

Perfect stay for one night. Big rooms, very clean and comfortable. Close to a supermarket and many restaurants. Breakfast is included. Motel is close to the road, but it's not noisy. Very friendly staff. I really can recommend this location.

I've just been here for one night and I think is one of the best motel I've ever been. The room was very clean, they got everything(TV, fridge, towels, free wifi). The structure of the motel is nice, the location too and there is also breakfast included. It was a good experience
