Looks aren't everything...this lil diamond in the rough is a cozy and quaint lil place right on the beach with easy walking distance to everything. Great, friendly, informative staff, value and location certainly make up for the rough edges. This is my 4th time staying here and am already looking forward to next year and excited about the upcoming renovations.

The lady in the office was very nice and suggested places to eat. They are in the process of renovating rooms. Ours was clean. The rooms are very small and although the TV was new it was also extremely small. The price is right for being right on the beach but if you plan to stay in your room very... More

I was once there and I saw the manager scream at a client. Don't go there. I was in room #10 and there was mold. And plus the managers are strict. If you go there, check for MOLD in the room you are in. And they are not even in the office.Thanks for reading.

You couldn't ask for a better location and the people are genuinely nice and care about their guests. Every time my family and I travel down to Pismo, it's the first place we check. We've always stayed here and I don't see that changing anytime soon!

Went to Pismo for 4 days, during the week. The managers are friendly and all staff do their best to see that everything is just great. The furniture and showers have all been upgraded and everything is nice. The pier and the restaurants and specialty shops are just 1 block away. The view is wonderful and sunset is awesome. We...

The staff are family oriented and friendly; the room was very clean, shower nice, extra comforters to keep warm and room has a great ocean view. Waking distant to pier. It was a peaceful night and woke up to hear the ocean waves as well to watch the sunset from your room. What was very nice, I had to reschedule... More

The view is amazing! The staff is very friendly and helpful. Located on the beach...not like so many hotels along... More
