The room is not overly large but was clean and the bed was comfy. They offer an expanded continental breakfast which included make your own waffles. We were on the second floor and I loved sitting on the balcony and watching the waves. This hotel is right on the sand! Every morning I walked along the beach and collected sand... More

Our group of 16 recently stayed at this property while touring the pacific coast highway. Pismo Beach is a lovely town! The property does not have air conditioning and the rooms were stuffy at night. The location is fantastic right on the beach and the rooms were spacious.

The Sandcastle Inn was great for a short weekend getaway. Located right on the beach it was easy to wander, watch the surfers, and sunsets. The 3rd floor deck looks right out to the ocean and is great to watch the sunset (with Plexiglas to shield the wind). Good local beers to buy at the front desk. Breakfast was fine,... More

We have stayed here on more than one occasion and every time it is perfect. They always have honored our request to have rooms together. The whole place is very clean. The staff very nice and accomodating. Breakfast has great waffles, hard boiled eggs, oatmeal, pastries, etc. The upgrades are very nice. Love being able to walk a couple of... More

We got to our room which overlooked the parking lot & thought we had booked a room with a view instead of double queen non-view (also this room in the main building did not have air-conditioning, which my husband needs). I found our confirmation & saw we did not book a partial view. However, I got on the hotel website... More

We used to stay somewhere further out of town but tried this a few months ago so our kids could be in town without all the driving and we fell in love. We were recently there for our wedding anniversary and it was superb. Plan to return in October!

We love staying here. We have for years. Management and front desk are wonderful and helpful. While it might be aging a bit there are MANY updates being made there. The area of the hotel is PERFECT! We didn't have to drive out anywhere if we didn't want to, it's located steps from the beach, the pier, restaurants and shops.... More

My family researched hotels for our recent trip to Pismo Beach extensively. We settled on the Sandcastle Inn, despite it being outside of our budget, because of its many amenities: breakfast, ocean vies, ocean view Jacuzzi, and above all else, its location. We actually decided that staying fewer nights was worth the upgrades of this hotel. When we arrived, it... More

Very happy with location right on the sand. My daughter left behind some clothing and when we called the manager, they didn't have them. Someone who works there is not honest. Adequate breakfast. We found the front desk staff very welcoming and accommodating.

Had read several reviews of the hotel before our stay there and had noticed some of them mentioning the 'welcome' they received from the front desk at check-in. I put them down to some reviewers complaining about trivialities for the sake of it but have to say, from my experience, there was a ring of truth to them. It's a... More
