This location was the spot of our 3rd Anniversary and it was a great spot. I went for the first floor room per recommendation of another review on here and it worked out. I booked well in advance and got an awesome deal. When we walked into our room we had a set of swans formed out of bath towels... More

We stayed at the Cottage Inn in a pet friendly ocean view room. The location and view were great, but the cleanliness of the room was not. The carpet had not been vacuumed and our dog kept finding things all over the room. The bathroom also needs updating.

We stayed here for 1 night during a road trip down the california highway. The room was huge with 2 double beds. It was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed. It wasn't particularly luxurious and not the most modern of places, but perfectly pleasant. The hotel has a great location on the beach and right off the highway.... More

Currently enjoying an overnight stay at this hotel. Easy to find, friendly welcome. Wonderful sea view room with a patio with an amazing view of the ocean. The room is clean and comfortable with high quality products in bathrooms. The pool area is clean and well maintained. So far very impressed. I would agree that the rooms, especially the bathroom...

Stayed a week there recently for a family get together. Priced affordable considering that breakfast was included. Staff very helpful as we had multiple bookings and cancellations to deal with prior to the visit. Rooms clean, good beds and linens. Able to walk down the stairs to the beach and we were lucky to hit great weather. Would definitely stay... More

We stayed one night in June to celebrate our anniversary in the area. Room was decorated beautifully, and we had a beautiful view of the ocean. As we stepped out of our room from the back door to the ocean side, we were able to spot a couple of whales in the distance (binoculars recommended). Pismo is a beautiful area... More

We upgraded our room to an ocean view & it was worth every penny. The view was beautiful. There's seating in various places within the garden overlooking the ocean lovely to sit & watch the sunset, it was also lovely to sit in the morning with a cup of coffee listening to the waves & watching the humming birds.

This place greatly exceeded our expectations! It is situated on the bluff above Pismo Beach right off Highway 101. While there is some traffic noise, it does not interfere with the experience. Our room was great and had a fireplace, Keurig Coffeemaker, large bathroom and comfortable bed. The pool and spa area were very nice and look out over the... More
