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

Room was priced right at under $100.00. It was clean and had a good bed. The parking spaces are small. Really small. And you have to Wonder how the night is going to go when you look upstairs and there are people partying outside their room and there are beer cans lined up on the railing. Sure enough, they were...

Definitely on the highway but the motel has obviously been redone. Rooms were spacious and no complaints. Bring your own clock though as none in the rooms. About four blocks from the Beach and Pier. Breakfast area very small but OK with waffles, cereal, and Danish.

We chose this motel after reading other reviews on Tripadvisor. We chose a room downstairs but didn't have much noise from above. The room was clean and quiet even though it is close to the freeway. It is nothing fancy but a lesser expensive option than many places in Pismo. It is only a two block walk to the beach... More

This motel was nice, and ran by a very nice couple. We ended up arriving quite late (around 11 pm); and we called to let them know before hand. They were very friendly, and said to drive safe, and take our time. (They have a door bell to ring when arriving after-hours.) Everything was clean, and updated. And I could... More

Ocean Palms is located very close to the entry of Highway 101 south, and only a few hundred metres away from the Beach. The Pismo Beach Outlet is 15 minutes walk from the Motel. Rooms are big and kept clean, and there is a small Swimming pool area, with a few sunbeds. Breakfast area is small, so you might have... More
