My wife and I arrived here last Tuesday. There were only two cars in the lot. I walked into the office and waited at the counter. A woman walked in from a back room and stared at me like I had interrupted her. I finally said I had a reservation and wanted to check in. She frowned and asked me... More

The motel is right off the exit on the 101 and across the street is the actual Pismo Beach sign (I like takingnpics next to those). The room was sizeable, very clean inside and out. One caveat though is that it has no built-in AC system. Yep, they provide you with an in-room fan. Otherwise it was a wonderful stay.... More

This motel is a small one directly on highway 1. We had our stop there while driving from san Francisco to LA. The person at the reception was really nice and helpful. The room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was very basic (cereal, waffles and coffee) but for the price totally fine. The beach is right around the corner. I... More

Very comfortable spacious clean room the picnic area is clean and well maintained. We will be staying here again. Breakfast waffles are good. Wish it was beachside but it's close enough. Quiet rooms not lot of coming and going.

Older motel with very nicely updated rooms, clean and fresh with all basic necessities needed, good CATV and Wi-FI signals too! Great value for this pricey beach town. Only downside: auto traffic noise due to it's close proximity to US 101 onramp - with windows closed indoor noise level later in the evening is ok, but if you need a... More
