The reviews for this facility are much higher than we experienced. We were given and room with badly stained carpet (probably from dogs) and then still had to pay an additional $40 for our dog, who made no mess at all. The room was hot, but had no air conditioning. We had to open the windows and were greeted by... More

We stayed from Wednesday through Sunday in Mid September 2014. There were three of us and we had a huge second floor room with 2 king size beds. It had a small fridge, microwave, and coffee maker, a small table with 2 chairs and a desk for internet/general use. There was also a fireplace for toasty heating on the sometimes... More

Stayed here on business for three nights. The room was spacious and relaxing. The free breakfast had a variety of foods and was quite good. The views of the ocean and surrounding area are spectacular. They have beach access. It seems family friendly, too.

Stayed here for one night en route from San Francisco back to Los Angeles on our west Coast road trip. Room was comfortable and spacious.Free WiFi, and luxury toiletries were a nice touch.. Great view of the ocean and beach, which was a short walk down some steep steps. The sunset from the hotel cliffs was a beautiful way to... More

Everything was perfect! The gentleman checking us in was very nice and he answered all my questions. The room was perfect. We had a partial view of the ocean. We were greeted by two towel swans on our beds. After checking in, We walked the private entrance to the beach. It was less than a quarter of a mile to... More

The setting could not be lovelier nor the view more fantastic. Everything about the hotel was delightful except for the fact there is no AC in the rooms. Luckily we were gone all day and had brought extra fans to cool the room at night. Otherwise, it was a perfect stay. I'd love to return in fall when it's a... More

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
