This was a nice, clean, comfortable Hilton Garden Inn. The breakfast buffet with maid to order omelettes was decent, although I'm glad it was free as a gold member. I don't think it would've been worth the $13 they charged otherwise. It is very close to the freeway, but there is little to nothing within walking distance. You need to... More

From the large Hilton chain is this very comfortable and cozy Hilton Garden Inn at Pismo beach. Spacious rooms, and we were pool level with a nice nice outdoor seating area.... Generous breakfast for $12 (unless you are a gold or higher member, then it's free!)

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

As another reviewer stated here, this is s typical Hilton Garden, and it's not trying to be anything else. It is clean and tidy, the rooms are clean and pleasant and well presented, their are great amenities, it's close to the Beach, but is not walkable. 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
