This place is great. It may be old style, but it's a really nice little motel. Rooms are very clean with everything you need. Breakfast pastries and waffles with our coffee started us off just right. Then, ... it's all about location. 3 blocks to walk to the truly awesome beach. Or within 3 blocks to any of the shops... More

Very clean room, love microwave and refrigerator. Breakfast good but minimal. No fresh fruit, which most breakfasts have when they serve waffles. Customer service was friendly and helpful. We stayed four nights. We would definitely stay again.

Nice, recently renovated rooms and the cleanest motel We've ever stayed in! Owners really care about the place and their customers. We were there in off season. Late January, Great Rates!! Highly recommend this place.

We stayed here for two nights and the room was big and spacious. It seemed that it had been newly refurbished as all the doors looks new and the bathroom. There is a little garden with benches , you can sit on for an evening drink and a large pool ( not heated, so didn't use as it was January)... More

Clean large rooms with fridge and microwave at a very reasonable rate. The free breakfast is the most minimal I have ever experienced after staying in dozens of budget hotels. The bed was very comfortable for us and the freeway noise was hardly noticeable. The staff needs to learn basic customer service, like: "Can I help you" and "Thank you"... More

Previous reviews mention noise. We had no problems with road or neighbor noise. There weren't many people in town the week we were there, so that might be why. In general, our room was quite basic but clean and comfortable. Short walk to everything. Only complaint is that breakfast didn't open until 7:30am. As my husband was there for work,... More

We booked in for one night as we were making our way to LA. Most of the other places still available in Pismo were $50+ more. For the price it is a reasonable place to stay. Quiet in the motel room, large bed which was comfy enough and good water pressure with plenty of hot water. Nothing fancy about it... More

We are tripping down the pacific coast and stayed a night in Pismo Beach. Great place! Ocean Palms Motel was a fine hotel, it was comfortable and had everything we needed. Good location, clean & tidy! We were only there a night but the hotel suites our needs perfectly.

We were in California visiting relatives and knew we wouldn't be at the hotel except only to sleep. So we wanted something clean and low cost. This hotel was great for that. And yet it many places to eat right around if we needed. Also a very close walk to the Ocean (like 3 blocks).

Great location in downtown Pismo. Stayed 4 nights, here for the annual Jubilee By the Sea jazzfest. Reasonably priced, clean, quiet. Could use air conditioning, as the room got a little hot & stuffy during day in the 80 degree weather. However, the room did have a wavering fan which provided some relief. Free wifi, in room coffee, microwave &... More
