Nice clean hotel outside of Pismo Beach. It's too far from the beach area to walk so make sure you have a car. No restaurants nearby so be prepared to pay $27 for a hotel buffet breakfast consisting of cereal and cold eggs. (They did offer to cook an omelet to order but it was after we ate our cold... More

Thank you for your comments regarding your stay. Unlike the Hampton or Marriott Courtyard we do have a full service restaurant. Please just notify your server if you would like anything cooked to order. I'm sorry your eggs from the buffet were not as hot as you would like. Cooked to order would be a better choice for you as... More

I love staying at Hilton Hotels and as I Hilton honors member I expect a high level of service. Overall this location is perfect if you want to experience Pismo Beach for the weekend. The view is ok but super close to DT Pismo and the beach. Free snacks in the afternoon (cookies and popcorn), with a bar open late... More

We came to Pismo Beach on a family vacation with 7 people and their 2 bedroom suite was perfect. The hotel and room were very clean and the staff were very helpful. The breakfast was a little pricey for what they offered, however the location was perfect for beach access and other restaurants near by. The pool was awesome and... More

After staying at many hotels in the area, I was blessed to finally stay here, and I have not been to any of the others since. I have stayed here about 14 times in the last year for multiple nights and every stay is as good or better than expected. This is a great, professional hotel and you cannot go... More

The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are quiet an comfortable, but they are starting to show their age. The restroom was well maintained, and with plenty of towels. However, they are also kinda dated. Over all a good place to stay, and with a convenient location.

NEW VERY NICE HOTEL. As a Diamond Member expect things to be set up perfectly for me. Checked in on-line, when I used the room keys given to me didn't work. Had to get new keys.

I ran on the residential hills that surrounded the hotel. It was beautiful. We had a view of the beach from the parking lot. Perfect location. It took us 3 minutes to walk to a great Hibachi grill next door. The following morning, we went straight to the beach. It took us about 5 minutes to drive to the beach.

Great experience, other than the mattress being a little hard everything was clean, new, friendly service, nice lobby. Nice location, especially for business or a nonbeach front weekend. Would definitely recommend.

We discovered this gorgous boutique hotel about 3 months after it was built (then called Mission Inn). Had a spectacular romantic weekend there and then later it was acquired by HGI. We continued to come here maybe twice a year from SF where we live in a high rise condo. It is one of the most comfortable and esthetically pleasing... More
