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

My husband and I stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. For as long as I can remember, I wanted to stay in "the castle by the beach", so I had some high expectations, and this hotel did not disappoint! We had an ocean front room, Which I think is the best room in pismo! You can't beat the views or... 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...

We were lucky enough to get an ocean front view that did not disappoint!! Arriving at the clean beachy decorated room with a view to kill for was great! It was clean and cheery with flat screen tv and what appeared to be a recent updated decor. It beckoned us to the balcony where we watched whales and surfers. We... More

You really cannot beat the location and quality of Sandcastle Inn. Rooms are up to date, spacious, clean. The staff is very accommodating, the fellow guests are wonderful. You are a few steps from the beach and only a block or two from great restaurants and the pier. I come on business but usually bring my family and I have... More

We had a great stay here and booked from friends recommendations. Then read bad TA reviews and started to concerned. After two nights here I say - don't believe them.

We don't live far from Pismo and just wanted a get-a-way for the weekend with the kids. We spent a little extra to get an ocean view room and it was by far the best and most relaxing experience ever! It was so enjoyable to sit on the balcony and have the beach our backyard for a few days. It... More
