Very happy with this HGI ... great view from the bar, restaurant, and pool area. Staff extremely friendly and helpful. An unexpected treat on our journey. Pismo is always fun. Downtown / beach just a short drive away. The freeway noise did not bother us at all (it's close, so wondered if it would).

Thanks Keri M for your excellent review. I was glad you enjoyed our hotel. The hotel is unique in that is built into a hill which gives guests panoramic views of the area from the restaurant and lounge area. The hotel was built with easy access on and off highway 101 and you are right, the rooms are very quiet.... More

I was on a college tour down the California coast with my 16 year old daughter and a friend. We were planning to visit Cal Poly San Louis Obispo and UC Santa Barbara. The hotels in Santa Barbara were all too expensive, so we looked into hotels in the Pismo Beach area. We arrived late in the evening, found that... More

I spent two nights this month at the Hilton Garden Inn Pismo Beach while accompanying my husband on a business trip. The staff was friendly. Check-in was smooth and easy. The room was clean, though as is typical, the carpets could use shampooing - not a huge issue since I don't have any small children and didn't intend to sit... More

They hotel room was really big and we enjoyed the food in the restaurant. There was a pool available but we didn't use it as we were only there the one night.... More
