For a rate of $251 per night I wouldn't expect an ocean view room. That said I would expect a gracious and courteous welcome to the property. Please lower your expectations. If you would like a property that is slightly above a Motel 6, coupled with a staff that should not be in the hospitality business, this is the property... More

Fantastic views. Lobby staff, serving staff (restaurant) and maides very efficient and friendly. We ate three times - one evening and two breakfasts and food was really good and generous. Now the negatives. Building is bad design - stairs and no lift. Front of house at restaurant rude and inefficient - lost one of our bookings. Pool is small and... More

I am tempted to give a 2 star review, but the hotel manager was more than fair with me when I expressed my disappointment. The room was very nice with (my favorite) Philosophy bath products. I just could not get past the lack of A/C. It was completely uncomfortable & soured the whole experience. For the price point, these rooms... More

First let me say that this is a lovely hotel situated in an amazing location. It has several levels and is in the shape of a "U" with the left hand building overlooking the beautiful Pacific Ocean - breathtaking!! The rooms are very clean with very comfortable beds and plenty of towels. The staff - from the reception staff to... More

Perfect place to stay at Pismo Beach. The staff are wonderful- so friendly, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the views are incredible and the restaurant is romantic with ocean views and a gorgeous sunset. Rooms have all amenities including a Keurig coffee maker (awesome!) and shampoos/lotions by Philosophy (ladies will love this!). We loved it and will definitely return.

This hotel is very dated and the decor reflects this and there is a slight mustiness to the rooms. Our room overlooked the ocean which was nice but my sister had a room at the back which was dark and not very inviting. The pool sits in the middle of the car park. Handy for a one night stay as...

My stay was wonderful from the day we arrived until the day we left. I was bit hesitant to stay here at first based on them not having AC in there rooms. You don't need the AC at all the breeze from the ocean cools down the room. It's worth getting the oceanview if you can afford it. The view... More

Loved the comfortable bed, Keurig coffee maker in room and great location! Rooms are a bit dated but nevertheless comfortable and clean!! Staff was friendly and helpful with smiling faces! Location was amazing. Since we had our pet with us, we had a room with a tiny patio which was fine. Lots of grass area running alongside the oceanfront walkway... More

Great accommodations. We could see dolphins from our room with "no view." Desk staff very friendly and funny. Even came with a fan in each room. A microwave would have been the only thing I would recommend to make our stay better. Couldn't heat up our leftovers.
