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.

The view was amazing. New management just took over so they are working through some kinks but they were very ammcomidating. Cut my bill in half just beacause I had a couple issues. Nice place to relax.

we had a good stay here. The hotel is definitely a little older but nothing to be scared of. It was clean. We had an ocean view room with two beds in it even though it was just a couple trip. I would suggest getting the two beds because you get a much bigger room! Also, save the upgrade and... More

We really enjoyed our stay at one of the Cottages with an incredible overview. The value was incredible and the room had all the amendities of home. Very simple but everything that you would want. We actually really like the location being up on the cliffs, away from the crowds closer to town, but close enough to walk in and... More

Room wad dirty. No a/c and no breeze even though close to the ocean. Housekeeping left our front door wide open after cleaning on the second day. Luckily nothing was missing. Way overpriced for what you get. I was embarrassed that I booked this motel for my first weekend getaway with my new boyfriend. I would never stay there again,... More

Booked a night here on our drive from San Fran to San Diego. Terrible mistake. I'm not sure what the place is made out of, I think it's just concrete floors and the rest is plywood and plasterboard. You can hear EVERY noise that anybody makes. Last nights broken sleep noises included a pillow fight (???), tv's on low volume,... More
