4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We enjoyed our stay and I would recommend this hotel. But, I was expecting a little more for $200 a night. The property and rooms had a little bit of a motel feel to it (some rooms were accessed inside the main hallways, but our 2nd floor corner room had an outside door access). However, I was won over by... More

Loved our second stay here. Amazing and convenient location in Pismo Beach. Located on the beachfront and walking distance to all of Pismo's best restaurants. Free breakfast and wifi. Really enjoyed our stay! Thank you!

We booked to stay here for four nights but checked out after one night. The room was no noise - could hear people above us and next to us. Early in the morning, the beach got very noise also. We were four of us - two kids ages 10 and 14 and we stayed on the first floor. Even though... More

We went to Pismo Beach to celebrate our 45th anniversary. We overlooked the ocean and enjoyed not only the view, but also hearing the calming waves. We were able to see swarming birds having dinner,along with whales and dolphins beyond the breakwater. We were also treated to a breathtaking sunset the first night! We'll definitely return.

My parents needed a vacation. I decided to treat them. Couldn't have asked for a better hotel to stay in. Parents loved it. Staff was great and kept in touch with me. Answered all my questions and concerns. All I know is that they want to go back! Thanks Sandcastle Inn!

The hotel staff was so friendly and accommodating. The grounds felt homey, clean and comfortable. The location is absolutely perfect. We slept to the sound of the waves outside our windows. We will always stay here when in Pismo.

My husband and I drove the PCH from San Francisco to San Diego and Pismo Beach was one of our stops for a night. We found this location through Trip Advisor and booked a room as we were driving into town and we were not disappointed. Although there isn't a restaurant on site there are plenty within walking distance and... More

The Sandcastle Inn is right on the beach. Just a 5 to 10 minute walk down the boardwalk right to the pier, eateries and shops. We stayed one night on the second floor with a parking lot view, which is fine considering we spent all of our time outside enjoying the view on the patios and boardwalk. Stayed June 25th... More

We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a week long trip down the coast from San Fran to LA. Nothing fancy here, but a GREAT location. We had a room that opened up right to the beach. Friendly staff, great breakfast - and lots of atmosphere and things to do close by.
