My wife and I stayed here three nights for a Valentines weekend getaway. The service is good and friendly, especially the woman who serviced the breakfast room. The fresh-baked cookies were very good, but you've got to be there when they are put out to get the chocolate chip ones. The location is great for access to the beach (be... More

We enjoyed one night in an upstairs ocean view room. Great view and spacious room. I think in summer the whole town must be buzzing but it was quiet when we were there. Breakfast was average but plentiful. A great midway stay between Carmel and LA.

The Cottage Inn by the Sea is a lovely hotel on the bluff with a beautiful view of the ocean. I highly recommend the ocean view room. We left the windows open all night and were lulled to sleep by the sounds of the waves rolling onto the shore. The hotel has a staircase that leads to the beach and... More

This place is a real gem, nice friendly staff and a great location. Rooms were clean and spacious and the complimentary breakfast was good, especially enjoyed the waffles that you made yourself. Would definitely recommend.

We spent one winter night at Cottage Inn by the Sea. Our ocean front room was on the second floor (no elevator) and had a beautiful view of the Pacific Ocean. We arrived around 2:00 and were greeted in a friendly manner. Our assigned room wasn't ready for check-in, so the sweet lady at the desk did some rearranging and... More

My husband and I love the Cottage Inn by the Sea at Pismo! We used to have a trailer and stayed at Pismo Coast Village but are now in our seventies and don't want to work that hard anymore. Cottage Inn is pure luxury and comfort to us from the delicious breakfasts provided for guests every morning to the big... More

This hotel is right on the beach and close to restaurants you can just walk to. The staff was friendly and welcoming. Rooms are spacious and all have fireplaces for that romantic touch. This hotel was a great stop on our hwy 1 road trip.

My daughter and I stayed at the Cottage Inn this past February. It was beautiful! Great location. Clean room, right by the beach. Easy access. Check in was a breeze. They offered a great breakfast. It truly does feel like a "cottage". Loved having a fireplace in the room. Enjoyed every aspect of this trip. I will definitely be back!

Great location in Pismo. It's near the highway, but we couldn't hear any traffic. Check in was a breeze, the front desk staff are great. When we first got to our room, there was a strong bleach smell. We opened a few windows and it soon disappeared, at least we knew the room was clean. Large room with a fireplace,... More
