We stayed at this location this past weekend. It was absolutely fabulous. The staff was friendly and the room was immaculate. Close to Pismo State Beach only 5 minutes. Not walking distance but it is super easy to get to.

Be sure when you check in to ask the following... 1. Is breakfast included, we found out NO and it was embarrassing. 2. How many devices can be used on your "complimentary" wifi = 3. Additional charges will be incurred. 3. You must ask to have your room made up. The staff was smug and seemed put off by our... More

Really nice hotel with lovely rooms and a great lobby. Nice water and popcorn available. Cookies too if you get there early enough. Staff were helpful and the room was large and clean. Would definitely stay again. Didn't get time to use the pool but it looked nice.

We spent the night here as we drove back home and it was perfect. It was just off the freeway and the room was spacious. The following morning we took a dip and the pool and the had a great breakfast for a good price.

We stayed here on a stop over going to L.A. We liked the pool and hot tub as well as very large rooms. They have free coffee, cookies, snacks and popcorn in the lobby daily. Free parking is a nice touch and the beach and mini outlet mall are 4 mins. Away

Our delayed (2.5 yrs) honeymoon was a much needed rest for us. Hilton Garden Inn San Luis Obispo/Pismo was the perfect spot for us. They treated us like royalty. Very clean rooms, plenty of towels, quiet rooms, good parking, great beds have variable soft/firm control, AC/Heat worked perfect! TV/Internet was great. Breakfast had a nice selection and was very filling!... More

After traveling from San Fransisco and staying at the Hilton Union Sqaure, I much preferred this hotel which was $200 less a night than that hotel and many other hotels in the area. A much more simpler hotel with friendly staff and well kept throughout. Is a great value with spacious and clean rooms. Not that close to the beach... More

We stayed at the hotel because my husband needed a surgical procedure in Pismo Beach. The hotel was near the surgery center and doctor's office. The hotel was clean and comfortable and in striking distance of some good restaurants and a Starbuck's. We will definately stay again if we need to be in Pismo Beach.

Stayed here using Hilton Points plus cash while attending a wedding at the Green Gate Ranch. Property is close to the Five Cities Drive shopping center. Rooms near the pool are nice but if you are looking for peace and quiet probably not the best choice since the young at heart are often splashing in the pool most of the... More

Nice, clean hotel. Cute bar area. Seemed like the hotel was located in a safer area. The gardens were beautiful. The gym was adequate. Very friendly service, nice rooms. Close to outlet mall. Lobby was nice.
