Overall the room was OK. It was very small and I didn't like how the bed was right next to the walkway window. I requested a second floor room bc I had heard the sound proofing was not great. We ended up getting a 1st floor room bc they didn't have any others available. When we got in the room... More

We only had one night in Pismo Beach and couldn't have picked a lovelier spot to spend it. These vintage cottages and motel were set away enough from town that they were quiet but walkable to downtown Pismo. The beds were comfortable and the cottage easily accommodated six. Our thoughts to make it better -- more lamps (we prefer lamps... More

This little motel, probably built in the 1950's, has been lovingly refurbished and sits on a prime spot overlooking the ocean. Unfortunately there is no beach access, although one guest told us that there was access by walking around to the hotel next door. Room was spotless, we had a room with no view. The room was very small and... More

If you have never been to Pismo Beach, California, this would be a "for sure" stop to spend a night or two. Renovated rooms and cottages at this desirable oceanfront location, close to restaurants, the beach and downtown Pismo. Charming, and relaxing, with PLENTY of PARKING....It has the feel of old Pismo, with today's renovations! AND IF YOU HAVE BEEN... More

Rode up to this quaint hotel at 10:48pm, which was great, because the office closes at 11:pm and it would have involved going to a sister property nearby to get a key, and after a long drive...who needs that? We were assigned to the cottage that sets by itself on the south side of the property. It didn't look like... More

We were pleasantly surprised to find this location only steps from the sand in Pismo Beach! With the hell of the courteous and professional staff, all of our needs were taken care of in a timely manner. I would highly recommend this location to any traveler.

Except for the miniature bathroom and the fact that the motel at least the room we were in, is in need of upgrades, remodeling, etc. it was still perfect. The view was amazing, the room comfortable sized although the kitchen was superfluous...the refrigerator on last leg, no microwave. Still a place to put things. Although the bathroom was teeny, tiny,... More

When we arrived the staff at the counter greeted us very kindly and checked us in quickly. The rooms are spacious, cozy, and very clean! Our stay was in a partial-ocean view room, and it was precisely what we were wanted. Even though it's located near the freeway it was very quiet. Overall a great hotel and great customer service!...

Great from greetings to goodbyes. Inn and room very clean and well kept. Only one issue we were in the room below the viewing deck which wouldn't be an issue but a family allowed their children to run & jump above us in the morning disrupting our morning. Outside of that issue everything was lovely.
