We only had one night here as we were traveling from San Francisco to LA via San Luis Obispo. Located right on the ocean with a beautiful view and beach access. Room was small but comfy with a fireplace. Pretty good breakfast and close to some nice dining options. The only regret is that we wished we could have stayed... More

Lives up to its name! Delightful Cottage style hotel with fireplace in each room. Looks like you are in an English b&b! Accommodations fabulous and everyone on staff makes you fee like family! Kuerig coffee pot in room and wonderful views of the ocean.

My husband and I had a wonderful stay as our stopover between SF and LA. The view is certainly spectacular, and I would say you're missing out if you do not book an ocean view room! The pool/spa was closed for maintenance the night we were there, however reception gave us friendly and helpful instructions to use the next door... More

The Cottage Inn is very charming and in a beautiful location, overlooking Pismo Beach. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Room 422 was upstairs with a full ocean view. It was wonderful to open the windows and hear the waves rolling in on the beach. Free parking near the room was very convenient. And free Wifi was great. The room... More

Great 3 night stop off on our pacific coast trip, very convenient for route 1 and really still and quiet at night. Not luxurious but great value for money. The rooms are pretty large and kept really clean by the very helpful staff. Breakfasts were good and could be taken on the patio if required. Free coffee all day, cookies... More

What a lovely hotel. Lovely big room. We had an ocean view which was brilliant. Would definitely stay again. We didn't stay for the breakfast but there appeared to be plenty of choice. Access to the beach, but it is down some steep steps. Beach was quiet and clean.

A great place to stay for a couple of night on route either South or North. On the beachfront the rooms were okay, a bit dark and old fashioned but were fine for us. The service and help at the desk was really good as was the breakfast offer each morning. Wifi was free and the general facilities were also... More

What a lovely time we had here on our little getaway. Quaint and charming hotel perfectly located on the north end of Pismo Beach. Rooms are a bit tight but quite comfortable and clean. Maids did miss a few small details, but nothing to impact our stay. Front desk staff is extremely helpful. When the pool was closed for extended... More

I know it's a bit late for my review but I stayed here for 3 nights back in May 2014. I was very impressed of how lovely this inn really is. My room was super nice with a fireplace and it felt very COZY. It was a bit chilly during this time but my room made me feel right at... More

We chose this place as a stop over on a recent car journey because it was on our route, it was the right distance and they are pet friendly. We lucked out. It is on the beach, was very romantic and charming. The staff was very nice and there are lots of dining options. I would absolutely recommend it.
