This place is first class at a value price! You cannot beat the location! You can walk to the shopping , restaraunt areas! However, the highlight is the third floor patio! Lounge chairs, firepower gas heater! You can sit for hours and people watch as the hotel is on the boardwalk! I will stay longer next time! Did I mention,... More

The location is perfect. It is the only hotel right on the beach. Travelled with a 5 year old who enjoyed the swings on the beach right by the hotel, and of course, playing in the water. The surrounding area is wonderful with many shops and restaurants in walking distance. Although we had a room with no view of the... More

We were very pleased with this hotel. There seemed to be many good options, but this is the only one that had direct beach access - no cliff, nor stairs down to the beach. This hotel is is right on the beach. It is near the pier and bustling activity. The desk staff were very professional at check-in and check-out.... More

Just returned from our second extended weekend stay in three months. We enjoyed more breathtaking views from our Ocean Front King and private balcony to include the beach, pier, scores of talented surfers, and the rocky coastline beyond for very reasonable nightly rates. No hidden fees or price-gouging here where location, location, location makes it worth every penny --- and... More

Really a great hotel. On the beach, fresh rooms and a staff that sets it apart. I used to live in SLO and never used the hotels at Pismo. In the years since I moved, I discovered the Sandcastle Inn and always stay there when in the area. It has even become a destination for long weekend trips to the... More

My husband and I stayed for a weekend away, and it was perfect. The hotel is in the best locations, you can park your car and walk everywhere for the whole weekend. T breakfast is wonderful in the morning and it was very quiet. We will be back for sure!

Went to Pismo so our son, on spring break from the polar vortex back east, could warm up. This is the second time staying at the Sandcastle Inn and will probably be more in the future. The reason is that's it right on the beach and about a block from the center of town. The ocean front rooms offer spectacular... More

I stayed here on a business trip while working in San Luis Obispo. I had a good room rate for a multiple night stay. The view from the third floor balcony looking at the pier and beach was incredible and very relaxing. Easy walking to shopping and dining. Don't forget to watch the sunsets! Definitely worth staying here!
