we had a family 2 bedroom suite - it was on the 3rd floor up stairs - this might be a problem for someone with mobility problems (more of an inconvenience for us) but should perhaps be spelt out when booking Rooms were just OK - not spotless - everything froze in the fridge unfortunately.

When we were unfortunately subjected to this hotel by a third-party, I clung to the fact that it would only be for one night. Split into three buildings with four separate parking lots, it was a bit difficult to determine which stairs we need to trek to find our room which had some nice vegetation, an unseemly trash-can and a...

We had 3 staying in a room. We had a big room that was clean, tidy and safe. The beds were comfy. For the price we paid there isnt anything I can fault about the place. Yes it might be a bit dated but you can see that in photos and for the price you pay you are going to... More

The rooms need updating and a solid cleaning. Paint was peeling, the furniture is from the 80's and they still use those nasty bed spreads. Tip to all hotel owners: Take the bedspreads off and burn them! On the plus side: It's a central location and the breakfast was good (due to the cook). I asked the front desk how... More

I recently stayed here for two nights. The breakfast was good with scrambled eggs and sausage, waffles, muffins and juice. The hotel was nice and my room was decent. The walls were a little thin but not a huge deal.

I have stayed here many times before, but never in the "rear annex" building. This section has dated rooms and no accommodations (had to walk back across the road to get to the main building and breakfast). We tried getting a room in the main building but would have had to "upgrade". Never happened before (when this was a Choice... More

I've stayed here several times before and I'd definitely have to say this was not our most positive experience thus far. Either the sink or swamp cooler was leaking so everything on the counter was completely soaked when we got back from dinner. The same held true when we woke up in the AM. The room itself was simple and... More

The receptionist was friendly and customer oriented. The room was clean and the beds very comfortable with 4 pillows per bed. This area does not have much to choose from and while the room was much more than I wanted to pay, it was the lease expensive one I was able to find and we were pleasantly surprised.

We just stayed a night here while visiting Pismo beach. The receptionist was quick to check us in even though we had come in quite late. The our 2-room suite was tidy, though weirdly arranged - 2 queen beds in the inner room and a single queen bed in the outer/living room. The hotel staff provided additional towels and a... More

The "manager " who checked me in smelt of alcohol which should have warned me off from the start. It took 45 minutes for us to get a room ; at the point I decided to bale out , he'd already taken my credit card booking and refused to allow me to cancel the booking ( made 10 mins previously.)...
