We stopped here for one night on a trip down the coast. We loved it so much we *had* to stay another night!! The room was clean, modern, quiet and spacious - perfect for a quiet weekend away. The gas fireplace was a nice touch, though the room got quite hot with it on, so we instead just enjoyed the... More

This place we stumbled on last year when driving up the PCH coast and late at night stopped in Pismo Beach to rest. Our room was so nice at this place with a fireplace and it overlooked a cliff leading down to a gorgeous beach. In town in an awesome place to get homemade cinnamon buns. Great little town to...

We've stayed here several times in the last year, including for our 25th wedding anniversary. It's very well priced, quiet, cozy, and so beautifully situated on the cliff in Pismo. It is currently undergoing some refreshing, but they are managing to keep it from disturbing the guests. The king patio rooms walk right out into the bluff for perfect relaxation,... More

We stayed at Cottage inn for 1 night on our road trip in September 2014. It is in a stunning location, make sure you watch the sunset from the terrace. Rooms were beautifully clean and spacious. Breakfast was good. We had the most amazing meal and cocktails at the Ventana grill next door! Would love to visit again someday!

Located on a cliff overlooking the sea, the ocean-facing rooms are breath taking! The beach can quite easily be accessed by stairs and my morning run was an all time top 5 cardio experience. The rates are quite reasonable considering the view. If you also add that breakfast is included they become competitive considering that the rooms are nice, but... More

Great location and a Hollywood scenery view! The hotel is tastefully decorated with great amenities in the room that includes an efficient fireplace that add to the already romantic atmosphere. The breakfast sitting area needs improvement mostly because tables and chairs are packed and they are not tasteful.

On a whim we decided to take an overnight trip to Pismo Beach. Because this was a whirlwind decision my little dog got to take a vacation with us. This was the only hotel with availability that welcomed pets. We were a bit nervous that this place would be lackluster since it was one of the few hotels with availability... More

Large comfortable rooms. A little outdated but still comfortable and clean. Lovely polite staff. Sitting down on the cliff edge with snack from the farmers market and a bottle of wine was perfect. Amazing views. Would definitely stay here again.

Pleasantly surprised at the size & cleanliness. The fireplace was very useful. Was happy to use the inhouse laundry machines. We arrived at nite & enjoyed the walk down to the beach. Lovely landscape. Will certainly return here.
