We had stayed at this hotel several times before Hilton took it over, and had been very disappointed. We decided to try it again in the hope that Hilton had corrected the many problems, and they have! Except for the absence of a soap dish and a flow control in the shower (we have a drought in California) and a... More

The staff were extremely helpful and attentive, nothing was too much trouble, I would... More

Very nice, very clean and comfortable, quite trendy. Microwave and refrigerator available of course.The room is always well stock with coffee. I was however disappointed not to have much tea and herbal tea there. Friendly and efficient staff. Just what you expect from a Hilton. However the WIFI wasn't picking up/working well in our room (238).~ it works fine outside.... More

A typical Hilton Garden Hotel, it has excellent amenities and really friendly and helpful Staff. The rooms are a little tired now and could do with updating , but they do a very decent breakfast and the restaurant does a good line in wholesome food. The Hotel is set well back from the beach and is not easily walkable, but... More

Was close to the Beach, We could see the Fire works from Pismo pier from the hotel. Kids loved the pool. Our room had a Keurig coffee machine which we used a lot. The Kids loved the sleep number beds.

Stayed here for four nights on business. Checked in after 9 pm, very tired. The staff could not have been nicer. They checked me in very quickly and comped me a bottle of water, probably because I looked so exhausted. I expected to have a regular room and was shocked to find out I had a suite. Such a beautiful... More
