Our family has been staying in Pismo Beach for over 20 years, we have stayed at almost every motel there. The Ocean Palms is one of the best and most accommodating at a very reasonable price. The owner, Bob and his family go out of their way to make sure that you have whatever you need to make your stay... More

I truly enjoyed my stay at the Ocean Palms Motel. I had requested a room with the best possible WiFi connection because I had to do some work during my stay and this request was met without any problems. Bob, the owner, made sure that I was able to connect to the network and checked several times on me to... More

This was a small motel by the 101.

The bed was my only complaint with the room as it was a little to flat and hard. The check... More

We've stayed here many times as we drive through Pismo Beach about once a month. We always stay for just one night but the price is what keeps us coming back! We always feel like we get much more than we paid for here. Great service, awesome location, comfortable beds, clean rooms and again... The price can't be beat!

I checked in on a Saturday night and was told by the owner that he was expecting me on Friday. I had made the reservation with him several days earlier by phone. At first he was going to charge me for the Friday night, but then he realized the mistake was his and said not to worry and I checked... More

We were greeted by the friendly proprietor "Bob" who made our request for a main floor room happen. The room is was clean with lots of room. We were surprised to find this at a very good price. A continental breakfast is included (also a nice surprise). Location is good to the beach and to the highway. Will be stopping... More

Stayed here one night while driving the California Coast. The Hotel was very nice and affordable. The rooms were well appointed and clean. Check in was easy and parking was right out front of the the room. Waterfront is not far away and walk able. Good restaurants in the area

You honestly can't beat this place for the price. We stayed here in the middle of January. Our stay was darn near perfect - the room was spacious, clean and freshly renovated. We were so pleased with our visit that we even stayed an extra night. The bed & pillows were comfy, the housekeeping staff was helpful & accommodating, they... More

We stayed for 1 night on way to LA, great place to stop and break the journey, such a cute little town with a gorgeous seaside. The room was nice & spacious, the whole place is very clean & tidy. The smell in the reception office is a bit off putting so we decided against breakfast. We would return.
