This is a very nice place to stay. The staff was super nice, She gave us extra time because it rained the day we were there and we couldn't enjoy the beach.The view was great. It is literally steps from the beach and a one minute walk to the pier. The rooms are a little small but clean. It doesn't... More

Have never had so much fun!!! What a fantastic view of the Pismo Beach Pier and north beach for miles! My wife grew up in Shell Beach, so this was old home fun for her. We Loved Managers, They were the best. To be so close to the beach, the pier, to town, was the best. My wife and I... More

Had a weekend stay with wife and father-in-law. The motel was clean, managers were friendly and helpful. Room 21 is upstairs,in middle of L-shaped prop. and affords an excellent view of beach and pier. Easy walk around corner to the best clam chowder. Nothing fancy but totally hassle-free.

I admittedly selected this hotel for 2 reasons. One, which can almost go without saying, was/is the location. Right on the beach. Reason 2 was that it was also right in the heart of Pizmo Beach. Which meant I didn't drive literally an inch over the four days I was there. Food, drinking and bowling were all within several blocks,... More

After searching far and wide for a hotel in Pismo, I found this gem. The hotel staff/owners were very friendly and welcoming. I would suggest the suite rooms for families as there is a fridge, stove, couch, kitchen, bar and a spacious living area. All the rooms have a view of the sunset and most rooms allow you to see...

I stayed two weekday nights during the first week of spring break. In town for work I wanted to stay close to everything and still be able to get work done. Dolphin Cove is my new spot for business and leisure. Staff was accommodating for all my needs, even brewing me a fresh pot of coffee and brought it to... More

Stayed with a friend and her 11 year old daughter. The room was clean, the hosts were friendly and accommodating. The view from our room was amazing! We were walking distance to all the shops and restaurants in the center of downtown, not to mention the beach and pier. They also had a nice patio area for beach and people... More

My husband and I have never been to Pismo beach! This was the PERFECT location...right on the beach, and in the center of downtown. This was a perfect little getaway. We will be bringing our kids next time for sure. Rooms are small and this is a motel, but hey, you're at the beach....not much more is needed.

The sunset in Pismo must be at its best from the balcony of Dolphin Cove Motel. The welcoming is really firendly and the team gave us a lot of excellent tips for our way. The rooms are cosy and our night was really peaceful, quiet and romantic. I'd adivse every couple who drives along the Highway1 to make a Stop... More
