I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times. The rooms are large and comfortable. The mattresses, comforters and pillows are normally extremely comfortable. I think this stay we got an older room. Very, very hard mattress and not excellent customer service as usual at the front desk. I rated this a "very good" because of my previous experience... More

Thank you for staying with us again. It is always great to hear from guests who have stayed with us in the past. We set the adjustable beds on the most comfortable setting but some of the beds can be more firm or less firm on this setting. Adjustments can be made so I hope you were made aware of... More

Very nice here. We stayed for two nights on a recent trip to the area. The registration desk staff are exceptional! (both before our arrival when we called and during our stay.) They were very pleasant and helpful. Someone told us this hotel used to be another hotel - and now Hilton Garden Inn. The rooms were nice; our room... More

Stayed at the Hilton recently. It's located right off the 101, but we couldn't hear any freeway noise. It's a bit of a hike if you want to get into town on foot. That's why the rates are a bit better than beach property. Room was nice, but typical for a Hilton. Breakfast was available for a fee. Exercise room... More

We love the Pismo Beach area and normally stay on the coast. As we were staying at a weekend this time the prices were expensive, and the Hilton Garden Inn was more reasonably priced option (as it's not on the sea front). The hotel looks nice, is easy to find and is very clean throughout. The front desk service was... More

Very promising start. We were greeted as HHonors members and given a few complimentary waters and a few taffy treats. The room is nice looking but the lay out of the room furniture is strange. The bed is sideways to the TV when it could have easily been placed so that the TV is at the foot of the bed... More

We wanted to get away for a night and thought of the San Luis Obispo area immediately because our son had attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo a few years back. We love the Pismo Beach area and had previously stayed at this location when it was under a different name (The Mission Inn). We loved this new hotel (at... More

We just stayed one night while passing thru the area. After being in the car all day it was especially nice to go in the Jacuzzi. We were exhausted, and slept great. Waking up to a beautiful view of the Pool and the California sunshine was great. It was a very nice experience.

Went to Pismo over the 3 day weekend to celebrate a friends birthday and were looking for a nice hotel at a decent price. We found this hotel on here, read the reviews and decided to give it a try.

I was concerned at first that the room was so close to the reception desk but you would never know it once the door closed. The room was quiet and large with an adjustable king size bed that was really comfortable. The room was super clean and only five minutes from the beach and the same exit as the outlets.... More
