Hi everyone, I'm back with another review for my very favorite inn in Pismo, Sandcastle. I'm now an 8 year old Boston terrier and everything I loved a few years ago about this place that I've been going to every October since I was 10 months old still goes! The people couldn't be nicer, the rooms couldn't be cleaner, the... More

This was the most amazing hotel we stayed at in Pismo Beach, CA. We had a ocean view on the second floor that I loved. We sat outside and viewed the sunset and took photographs of. There was plenty of local eating establishments to choose from all within walking distance. We walked the pier and watch the locals fishing and... More

Sandcastle exceeded my expectations! First off, I got the BEST deal through their website vs online hotel sites. That tells you something right there. And then, for our 10th wedding anniversary, I requested a second floor oceanview (got it) and when we arrived there was a sign near the check-in desk wishing us a happy anniversary (very nice touch!) and...

Excellent location which is right on the beach and within walking distance to the Pier, shops and restaurants. An ocean front room is a must. The furniture in the room are a bit dated but the manager told me that they will be upgrading the furniture in the near future. The free continental breakfast is just okay because it lacked... More

My boyfriend and I were fortunate to find a room for 1 night during Memorial Day weekend at Sandcastle Inn. The price was $250 incl tax for the standard king room. We were very impressed at the cleanliness, location, comfort, and staff. Parking was easy and free. They also give you a voucher for 50% off 2nd entree at the... More

I stayed here one night during my trip down the PCH. Very nice hotel. It's laid out nicely with a main outdoor patio on each floor. Having spent little time in this area, it reminded me a little of Florida as opposed to other beaches I saw and would see during this trip. I liked it, very quaint. I would... More

The staff was so friendly and helpful. Our large luxurious room was facing the parking lot, but that didn't matter at all because we could watch the wind blow the beautiful trees around. There are a couple of glass enclosed patios that are so beautiful and comfortable where one can sit and watch the waves caress the sand. We enjoyed... More
