The accommodations were very clean, the view was amazing and the location was perfect! We even arrived a bit early and I was pleasantly surprised that they were able to accommodate us. We will definitely be returning to stay in the near future!

Nice ocean front hotel - within walking distance of shopping and restaurants. Three floors, many rooms with balconies or patios. Clean rooms, nice public areas, and good service. Free parking and wifi. No complaints, would recommend.

We chose Pismo Beach as our first overnight stay while driving up the PCH, and Sandcastle Inn was a treat! Certain aspects of the room did feel a little outdated, but our view more than made up for it. To be honest, I can't remember in detail what needed sprucing up, because it was so insignificant. I only remember that... More

The Sandcastle Inn is located right on the beautiful sandy beach, just a block from the pier at Pismo Beach. (There was free and ample hotel parking.) We had a 2nd floor room facing the ocean with a small balcony and beautiful views. There is no A/C, so we left the sliding door open for a breeze at night and... More

We felt comfortable the moment we arrived. The room was ready early and we were also able to get a later check out time. Friendly staff, acomadations were very nice and the view from the second floor was great!

Since being adopted by two seven year old labradoodles, our travel plans have become slightly more complex - you see the pups like to travel and are very polite companions who require much less in the way of luggage than when our kids were younger and traveled with us. Visiting our family on the central coast for Thanksgiving brought us... More

Great experience from start to finish. When we arrived to the hotel the ladies at front desk were very friendly and helpful. This was our first visit to Sandcastle Inn. We will definitely be returning. Rooms were extremely spacious, beds were comfy, and the oceanfront room was spectacular. Sandcastle is within walking distance from everything you need.

Staff is friendly - each and every one and we had better service than some of the "high price" chains we have stayed in. Love the view and love The Sandcastle Inn. We always stay here when we want to visit friends and family in San Luis Obispo.

We have been visiting the Sandcastle Inn for years, sometimes with a few years between trips. We are never dissapointed. A visit to one of the true "old beach towns" coupled with a top notch hotel makes for a great getaway. Good eating places are within walking distance .

We always choose The Sandcastle Inn when we visit Pismo Beach because of location, convenience, and comfort. Great balcony view of ocean and beach, perfect place to get those postcard shots of sunsets! We highly recommend it.
