I booked this hotel after extensive research on Trip Advisor. When I booked I told them it was a special weekend away to celebrate our wedding anniversary and I wanted an ocean front room on the second or third level. The staff member was very friendly and dutifully noted our preferences. She seemed genuinely interested in our anniversary and asked... More

The hotel offers a great location to the beach, the pier and restaurants. The rooms a very clean and offers comfortable beds. And I must say that the breakfast offered a lot more than I had expected from a continental style. I can really recommend to get out on the beach on an early walk/run in the morning!

We stayed with our family and friends for the 3 day weekend. The location of this hotel was perfect! We just parked the car (free parking) and walked wherever we wanted to go in Pismo Beach. The room was clean and comfortable. The breakfast was very good. But the view from the 3rd floor seating area was fantastic! And it... More

For our weekend trip to Pismo Beach and San Luis Obispo, Sandcastle Inn was ideal. The location is perhaps the best part of the hotel as you are mere steps away from the beach. Better yet, you're only a couple minutes walking distance to some of Pismo Beach's best and most well-known restaurants. One of them is Splash Cafe with... More

Stairs lead right down to a quieter section of Pismo Beach than the portion that's right off the pier. A promenade connects the hotel to the main pier area. Two beach volleyball nets are nearby. Our stay was quiet, relaxing, and we'd welcome a return visit. Hot water always worked and the staff proved helpful by holding a lost item... More

I'm very happy that you had a very quiet and relaxing stay with us, and that you truly enjoyed our ideal location. While we are close to everything downtown, we are just far enough away to feel a bit isolated. Thanks for choosing to stay with us. Sincerely, Roger Wightman General Manager More

We thoroughly enjoyed a weekend get-away in Pismo Beach that included a two-night stay at the Sandcastle Inn. You just cannot beat the location or the price! The property is fresh and new and has wonderful high-quality beddings, soaps and towels. The location is right on the beach so you are literally in the sand in a few steps, and... More
