The staff is very friendly and professional and there for your every need. The bar girl also very friendly and helpful as always, the soup was... More

For the price, this was a great choice. Large rooms and comfortable amenities. The food for dinner and breakfast was outstanding. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool and hot tub were well kept and useable. It was very accessible off the freeway. It would have been perfect if it was on the beach. A great place for a... More

Overnight trip with the family and we ended up with the King suite (1 King in a bedroom and two queens in the main room). Room was very nice and spacious. Beds were very comfortable (they are adjustable). The only drawback was the internet was spotty in the separate bed room. Breakfast buffet had all the standards (eggs, meats, breads,... More

Very nice hotel. A lot of shopping within blocks of the hotel. Purchased a $400.00 designer bag for $127.00 at the designer bag outlet. These are not seconds or do they have any blemishes. They are handmade bags. GREAT deal. Room was very nice. Separate bath and shower. Staff was kind, personable and helpful. Will stay again.

Huge room space and free breakfast made our stay here comfortable. Full breakfast with fresh fruit, oatmeal, make your own waffles, eggs/bacon/sausage and made to order omelets too. Pool area and hot tub were also very nice.

My boyfriend and I stayed for a night last weekend (5/8-9/15) for a mini getaway from the Bay Area. We planned to go ATVing the next day and wanted a weekend for ourselves to relax. We arrived at this location around 10pm and thankfully they checked us in with no problem. We've always stayed at hotels on the beach, but... More

This is a very nice property close to the ocean and an interesting structure built into the side of the hill. One enters on the fourth floor and if the sleeping room not on the lobby/fourth floor the other sleeping rooms are on lower levels. Mildly confusing but intriguing. Did not like the dial a number bed. It felt like... More

Thank you for the nice comments you made regarding your stay with us in Pismo Beach. I was sorry the bed was too firm for you. We set the bed on the most comfortable setting and as you stated the bed is adjustable. I was glad to hear that you enjoyed the architectural lay out of the hotel. Being built... More

The hotel was clean and pleasant. Bar and restaurant staff were friendly and helpful. Room service was particularly a high point. The lack of water to Hilton member was disappointing. The bed didn't seem to adjust much if at all. The complimentary internet was subpar. The purchased Wi-Fi seemed to function better.

While this is an very nice, clean well managed facility, the staff make it happen, from the front desk to the bar and restaurant staff, they are focused on you and what they might be able to do to make your stay better.
