We stayed here in March of 2011 and were not that impressed with the Spyglass Inn. It was about the same quality as a motel 6 but at a higher price. It was not bad, but the property is a little run-down. The room was average, a little on the dingy side. The beds were un-even and lumpy. The TV... More

My husband and I stayed for 2 nights this weekend, in July. I just don't feel like the price we paid matched the experience. The room is out of date! The shower controls were working but falling apart (something I forgot to tell them at check-out but have always wondered why housekeeping doesn't bring up these types of problems). The... More

Make sure to get a room on the ocean; that's the whole point of being here! The pool is very small, but sufficient and the kids LOVED it. The hot tub is big and fun, but be sure to rinse off very well afterwards, as it was so strong with chlorine that it was foaming up. The room was very... More

Nicole at the front desk was amazing! Very friendly and our stay was perfect. There is a great little grocery store across the street with everything. Hotel is super close to the beach and next to a resort with a great bar and atmosphere for hanging out by the fire pit. The only thing that is bad about the Spyglass... More

Great room, the staff was terrific, fantastic views and a nice restaurant as well. It has areas to stroll and you can walk down to the beach to check tide-pools or just hang out. It's quiet and has all the amenities you could want. We have stayed at many places over the years at Pismo and believe this is the... More

The room was well-furnished and very clean. Wonderful ocean view with lovely grounds between the hotel and the bluff. Even though it was 4th of July weekend with the inn full, it was very quiet at night. The beds were very comfortable, too. All of the staff was very friendly and helpful. We liked being outside of Pismo Beach (too... More

Wir hatten schoene Zimmer mit kleinem Balkon. Zimmer zur Strasse nicht unbedingt zu empfehlen, da laut und keine besondere Aussicht. Sehr freundliches Personal. Super Fruehstueck, ermaessigt fuer Hotelgaeste. Zum Strand ueber eine Treppe vom Nachbarhotel.

One of my first trips to Pismo Beach with my girlfriend we stayed at the Spyglass Inn...that was eight years ago. We've been back many times since whenever we want to get out of town for a couple of days and stay at a great place. Everyone here is very nice and we've stayed in a number of different rooms...
