The location cannot be beat - it's just off the 101 and close enough to "downtown" Pismo Beach. There's a tiny outlet mall across the highway as well and plenty of gas stations nearby. Stayed in a 1br suite which was very spacious, although we found a number of hairs from previous occupants. Also, the A/C unit motor is right... More

It was a nice clean hotel. The bed was the only bad part it had a huge hole right in the center of the bed. Other than not sleeping well from a horrible mattress the rest of the hotel was nice and clean

Everything at this hotel went very smooth from checking in to checking out. The room was very clean and spacious and the location was great. The only down side is that they do not offer free breakfast. The cool thing about it was that it was built in a hill, so when you walk in, you're on the 4th floor,... More

My friend booked this thinking it was close to the ocean, and had Pacific ocean views. I guess the views are on the upper floors. The name and pictures also suggested gardens. We were on the third floor overlooking the parking lot and freeway...oh, a mile away past all the buildings...you could see the blue horizon of the water. If... More

This is a nice hotel for those who want to be close to the beach, without the business and noise that comes with actually being on a beach-front property. The property itself and the hotel rooms were very clean and updated. The hotel is located in a residential area right off of the freeway. Some parts of the hotel, such... More

Had a nice time very friendly staff and clean rooms. We enjoyed the afternoon snack tray in the lobby with oatmeal cookies and a fresh hot popcorn machine. I also like they had sand dollars for the kids that someone had picked up for them off of the beach and dryed them out.

Great location with great amenities. Minutes from Pismo Pier. Rooms were updated and beds were great. My daughters love to swim so the heated pool was great for me. I would definitely stay here again on future trips.

not much to say really, decent modern clean hotel .. my only complaint is that beds are way way too firm. not good for "older" folks with stiff joints:(( guess i need 200 characters .. ; easy parking, easy checkin, typical "free" breakfast consists of horrible foods .. oh, and a spacious nice bathroom too:))
