    From the moment we arrived we were treated like special guests. Small issues were attended to immediately and the staff was amazing. Thank you Jason the property manager for taking care of us. We will definitely be back.

    As described in other reviews...a true gem! Great location, very inexpensive...An older property that has been nicely freshened up by the new owners, very clean!!! And friendly service. Perfect getaway spot! Seems to be a "family friendly" property as well.

    I could tell this hotel recently went through a remodeling process. The beds and carpets were new. The rooms were relatively large. There was a Keurig coffee maker in our room. These things make great coffee. The view of the ocean from our window was amazing. Looking at this hotel from the street is kind of deceptive the way it's... More

    New owners took over early December and are updating this "mom 'n pop" motel with a great location on the cliffs above Pismo Beach. Note: you can not get to the beach from property, stairway needs to be rebuilt. I live locally but wanted a place to stay NY Eve close to the dance party I was attending. With AAA... More
