4 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

I've stayed here twice now, and it's my new favorite hotel in the San Luis Obispo area. I had a very large room (felt fairly new or recently refurbished), free internet via ethernet cable to laptop (I don't know if you can get ethernet to go to a phone device), they had a small store where I purchased some snacks....

Stop during a road trip so I was only there for one evening. Front desk was great very helpful. Room was a nice size. Internet Wi-Fi was faster than the other hotels I had been at. Parking was convenient and plentiful.

Just returned from a great stay! We're visiting Cal Poly SLO for our daughter's Admitted Day event. At first, we were trying to make reservations in San Luis Obispo, but unfortunately, they were all booked up. So the next best think was Pismo Beach which was a pleasant surprise. The city has grown since the last time that I was... More

Came for a quick getaway. Hotel was very clean and service was excellent. Rooms were updated and spacious. I love how there's a sink area just outside the bathroom. I have somewhere to get ready while someone else showers. Location is good, very close to the outlets and one exit from the pier. Their check-out system was down when we... More

Stayed for 5 days last week at the Hilton Garden Inn Pismo Beach and had a wonderful experience! The hotel was super clean and the staff was so friendly, from the front desk, the maids, the servers in the restaurant, even the friendly maintenance man. It is conveniently located near the interstate and easy to get to all the beaches... More

This HGI has been a home away from home for me for the past year. Staff never fails to smile and offer whatever service they can provide. Although this hotel is not on the beach, it is within just a short drive and provides the safety and peace and quiet some of the pricey hotels on the beach cannot offer.... More

I was disappointed that the reservation that I had made in advance was not honored when I arrived in the hotel; therefore, we were unable to stay there. The handicap acess room that I requested was unavailable. The front desk people did not seem to care about solving the problem. Therefore, we had to go to another hotel in the... More

Great staff and very clean rooms. I found it a bit overpriced since my room looked at a parking lot, but overall good hotel. I enjoyed the breakfast area, felt a bit more like home than most hotel breakfast areas.
