nine weeks at the same establishment: And when the off season is over, management would rather threat you like an unruley tourist than a good paying coustomer. Note, when checking out management will ask you to do this Tripadvisor deal for them. THEY DO NOT CARE! Motel 6 is directly up the road!!!!!!!! Check out their better business skills... F-

This hotel was within easy walking distance of everything in Pismo Beach. The room was clean and roomy, with wi-fi, a mini fridge, and microwave. Unfortunately, it's just below the 101, so there's traffic noise all night. This is easily managed with ear plugs, and for the price, it's worth a little inconvenience.

Booked on short notice and was really surprised at the price vs value. We usually stay at the $250 per night places but for just a quick trip we decided to roll the dice on this place. Looks like we will stay here from now on and spend the money saved on food and wine ( and gas). Bring your... More

The hotel manager Bob saved my life! A few weeks ago I went camping at North Beach with a few of my buddies. From the moment we had arrived at our camping spot, the temperatures were already well below 50 degrees. After going to bed around midnight, I woke up at 2 am freezing in my tent, I had never...

Very clean motel with nice big rooms and a very friendly staff. Very basic, but a great price and awesome value. Just a five minute walk to the beach..Perfect for a quick weekend getaway! Will definitely return in the future.

First time stayed at ocean palms, Pismo beach. The room is very clean and it does not look like a motel. Also, the price is very affordable. The location is near by the beach and restaurants (walking distance). I would stay here again.

Since discovering it in 2010, I have been staying at this excellent motel every single time I am either traveling through the central coast region or staying in Pismo three or four days at a time. I never use Experia after learning it costs as much as 35 percent more when I book a stay through them. I book direct... More

We were pleased with the cleanliness of the room and the smiles of the staff. Traffic noise is our only complaint, and that was mostly solved by earplugs.
