One night stop on our PCH adventure. This is a cute hotel with a tremendous location. If you have kids and/or pets, this is your place. It appears that many guests are not site seeing, rather spending their entire vacation here swimming and grilling. Since we were a couple traveling alone, i think we were looking for something more adult... More

For views this is by far one of the best hotels at a good price that you can get. Our room was directly above the reception area and the balcony looked out over the pool area and over the pacific ocean, it was lovely. The room was spacious and well equipped with a large fridge, microwave, coffee making facility. The... More

Everything but the view is added on to. Beautiful property that should have been host to a new hotel and lay out. Instead it seems they keep trying to upgrade, update and add on. It's ok but really just lip stick on the pig. Our bed was old, saggy and uncomfortable. The bedding was found at the second hand store... More

We stayed with our young Golden Retriever puppy for three nights. Our room had no view, but was discounted $50/nt and we stayed outdoors most of the time anyway. The staff was great! Breakfast was included but minimal, no restaurant or bar (hence 4 stars). We ate at Guiseppe's the first night and brought back from there the other two... More

I stayed here two nights while participating in a conference in SLO. This is my second stay at this property, this time in the north wing. My partial view room came at a government rate, so it doesn't hurt to ask if you're traveling for work and can take advantage of the government rate. Large room with a balcony, comfortable... More

My family (including 2 young school-aged kids) stayed here in June of 2013 for 2-3 nights- we were driving from Legoland to SF. The property itself is very modern, nicely decorated.

We are happy your family enjoyed your stay here at our bluff top property during your trip in 2013. Since your visit, we renovated our stairs so they are a lot easier to walk down to get to the beach. It's great to hear you were able to explore our little surfer town of Pismo Beach.
