We were ready for a really quiet and relaxing vacation, and so we selected Pismo Beach. Then using trip advisor, we found the Sandcastle Inn. And we're so glad we did! It was everything we were hoping for…great location, terrific staff (made excellent restaurant recommendations), very comfortable and quiet room, excellent internet connection, free parking, and a wonderful complimentary breakfast....

steps from the sand and pier, beautiful view, the staff was perfect, the property inviting. We arrived a little too late to enjoy renting a surrey, but the family returning there's seemed to have enjoyed it. Loved that all amenities were available and fresh baked cookies were a lovely touch.

I have stayed at this hotel five times in the last 11 months and never had a problem until this time. First of all when you asked for early check in, to me, early check-in means an hour prior to your check in time but don't hold your breath, don't get there till 4 o'clock when the regular check in...

My family and I really enjoyed our stay at the Sandcastle Inn, your right on the beach, next to the pier and walking distance to shops, restaurants and family fun. Great value as week as it includes breakfast. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. I recommend.

We loved our stay at the Sandcastle. Our ocean view was fantastic. The rooms were comfortable, clean and quiet. The balcony provided a most relaxing setting for morning coffee and a nice glass of wine at sunset. There were a number of families staying there, and because of the excellent layout and construction, we did not hear the usual noise... More

I didn't know what to expect at a beach front hotel in a small community like Pismo Beach. The stay was wonderful, the staff are great, the location is just perfect, walk to everything. The rooms allow you to hear the waves and walk about 30 feet to the beach. I was more than pleasantly surprised, we'll be back, again... More

We could not be more impressed! Starting with making the reservations, every request was graciously accommodated, especially by Debbie at the front desk---including a room change which she also handled to accommodate my Parkinson's Disease handicapped husband; and then we wanted to stay an extra day and again Debbie watched for cancellations until one came in which enabled us to...
