“Girls Weekend”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 4, 2014

Great property with an amazing penthouse suite! Lots of room to spread out and extremely comfortable. Location great for long beach walks and gorgeous sunsets from a large deck. Walking distance to mostly restaurants. Secure parking and quiet.

Room Tip: Get penthouse!

Dear Mina E,
So glad you enjoyed your stay at Valentina Suites! Thank you for mentioning how close we are to the beach and to restaurants. Many guests often park their car in our secure parking garage on arrival and don't move it until they check out. You are correct our suites are situated perfectly for friends and family get-togethers allowing plenty of space for privacy and visiting.

Look forward to your next visit!

We were recently there during the long weekend in their 3-bedroom unit at Valentina Suites. The experiences are overall very nice. We enjoyed every moment of it. The unit is clean and spacious. The furnishing is modern and stylish, and location is even better. We can walk to the beach, breakfast, lunch and dinner. The grocery store is 2 blocks away. In the unit, we have a patio and have a nice ocean view. Our 2 kids enjoyed the big space inside the unit and in Valentina as well. The place is nicely decorated, and well cared. Highly recommended.

Dear Ms. Yang,

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review! We are so glad you enjoyed your stay! The space our suites provide is unique and great your children could spread out. It is not common to find a suite with 1600 square feet for a family to enjoy! We hope to see you again soon! Regards, Kiley

I recently rented the 3 bedroom apartment @ Valentina Suites for my wife and some of her girlfriends. They all told me what an awesome place it was- it was so much nicer than a hotel- it really was a clean, stylish, and well-cared-for apartment at a great location. We had a dinner party @ Giuseppi's Italian right next door and it was so convenient and nice to know nobody really had to get in their car all weekend. Walk to the beach, walk to Breakfast, walk to the hills above Pismo. Super stay at a great value. We'll be sure to tell our friends coming to the area- dont stay in a hotel... stay at Valentina !!!

Dear BB4,

So glad your wife her friends enjoyed their stay we enjoyed having them! Being able to enjoy Pismo without driving or worrying about parking is a real plus. Pismo Beach is meant to be experienced in this way!

Best regards, Kiley

I want to begin by saying that the staff at the Valentina were so helpful, happy to be there and very accommodating. The night before we left, our dog boarding situation was not working out. I called the hotel to get some guidance on places to board our dog. Kiley went overboard giving me recommendations and even offered to contact local places for me!

I loved the photos and the history that was documented throughout the unit and the decor was very nice. Having hardback novels to read was a nice added touch.

I was disappointed with the sofa beds that our 14 year old son slept on. The mattresses were beyond uncomfortable and even took them off the sofa bed, stacked the two on top of each other and put in the master bedroom.

I would recommend a couple of things: better cookware. I came prepared to cook all of our meals in the unit based on the comments from other guests. I found the knives very dull and the cooking utensils were not sturdy.
Another thing is darker shades or a second shade that holds out light in the bedrooms. By sunrise, our room was very bright.

Suite 501 faces the freeway so there is noise throughout the night. We had to shut the windows due to the noise and was not anticipating this.

The hotel was in a great, safe place and we were able to walk to the beach, places to eat and all around town which made it nice.

Room Tip: I would recommend a room that faces the ocean and on the top floor with a terrace to see the sunset.

Dear Amie,

Thank you for taking the time to provide a review. I have personally sharpened the knives and inspected the cookware in the suite you have stayed in. We appreciate your comments as it helps us improve our guest experience. We will also be looking into the shades in the bedrooms. We look forward to welcoming you back soon!

We have stayed over the X-mass days. 6 people (4 adults, 2 kids).
Suite 501.

Master bedroom is huge. Bathroom is modern and complicated in a good way.
Second bedroom is not big, but not tiny either. Second bathroom is large.
Nice large living room, dining area, full modern kitchen.
Everything looks new or recently renovated. Clean, bright.
Gated, covered and secured parking lot. Dolly to get your luggage upstairs. Elevator large enough for dolly and 6 people or more.

Invisible service. Just how we like. Rooms cleaned, garbage thrown away, linens changed. Additional linens provided on request. No fuss, no issues, everything works.
Wireless internet for the suite. TVs. Books, sound system, DVD player. Coffee maker and even a tea pot.
(For those of us used to tea - most of american hotels and rental places do not have tea pots, so I was happy to discover it here)

Our windows were out to the street and freeway, but we did not hear any excessive noise. Trash track in the morning, that is all. It was X-mass time and street looked deserted most of the time.

There is a pricy but very good italian restaurant literally 10 yards away across the street.


One warning. If you plan to use sofas, (there are only 2 bedrooms for 4 people total, more then that will have to use 2 sofas in the living room) be aware. Mattresses on sofas are thin. Our smallest kid (~70 pounds) did not complain, but older (~110 ponds) was not comfortable. Good thing we had an airbed with us. I do not fault Valentina Suites for this, I've same sofa at home, same thin mattress. So I was prepared.

All in all great place. I suspect summer time is even better, since it is very close to beach.

Dear Michael,

Thank you for taking the time to provide an in depth review! So glad you enjoyed your stay! You hit on a number of great points! We like to think of Valentina as an escape from the ordinary hotel experience and your description of invisible service is spot on as we are here to provide all that a guest would need with out being under foot! Pismo Beach is a perfect place to spend the Christmas Holiday as we had fantastic weather!

Thank you again!

We had a clean studio, very quiet and nicely furnished. The sofa bed was quite lumpy though, and we did get some street noise, but we still slept great and it was close to freeway and pier. Would stay again!
