I had the opportunity to stay at Cottage Inn over Valentines Day weekend and had a really great experience. The hotel is a great location, the rooms are quite nice, and the surrounding area is beautiful. I would happily return again.

Great location overlooking the beach and Ocean to smoke my cigar and enjoy my martini. Refurbished rooms with a fireplace and easy walk to Steamers for a wonderful seafood dinner. Comes with breakfast and ask for patio ocean room

We stayed for 4 nights from Feb 5-9, 2015 and had a fabulous time. Great location - 3 hours from LA and 3 hours from San Francisco. Surrounded by a beautiful coast line. There are several beach areas to go to. We had a room on the upper level with a beautiful view of the ocean and the garden. The... More

The Cottage Inn by the sea is a great setting overlooking the Pacific Ocean . The rooms are very nice with some rooms being updated. There is a free breakfast and cookies in the afternoon. There are many places to visit including tons of great wineries so it's a perfect place for a home base.

Arrived after dark and could only hear the waves from our ocean front room. When it became light we were on bluff overlooking the beach. Enjoyed listening to the waves all night. Clean. Staff was friendly. One window was broken and wouldn't stay up and the screen was hanging off. We were able to adjust the screen and prop open... More

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!
