“Not THAT bad!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

I wasn't going to stay here after reading the reviews but since I was a Choice privileges member , just going to be overnight and had to use up some points, I chanced it. Had a nice stay-clean carpet and room tho unfortunately the coffee maker, fridge and remote didn't work. But still was a nice stay with a nice pool and jacuzzi. Plus nice people at the front desk. It is a 2 story motel tho and I could see how it can be noisy from the cars parked outside and the thin walls...

I wouldn't stay here if I come back here again. It was the last minute decision so I didn't have much choice but definitely should have picked other ones. Room wasn't clean compared to its price (queen for over 200$ including tax) and the bathtub seemed too gross that I was hesistant to take a shower... Breakfast in the morning was terrible so I threw almost everything away...

Booked as a walk in. Needed a last minute getaway.. This is the place. Right next to the pismo outlets!! Hotel staff were friendly and accomodating. Room was clean and comfortable with frig and microwave. Continential breakfast was typical, but well stocked and clean. Cereal, fruis, juices, pasteries, toast, coffee.. The usual.. They also had breakfast sausage, egg patties, and boiled eggs. There is a pool, and hot tub, but we did not use. I believe they also provide towels. Easy to find off the 101. Room was about $80. No ocean view, but its a big ocean. Got to the beach within minutes. The ocean is free.. Why are hotels charging so much for the viewsSurrounding grounds were clean and quiet. Will go back again.

Probably not the best, but finally something clean, very clean, motel at a reasonable price. A little tough to find, the gps could not pinpoint the location, and most residents, or maybe tourists had no idea of where the street in question was: five cities dr; however the desk clerk got us there, and once there we realized its convenience.
Close to the 101, yet within 15 minutes of the pier and the action..
King bed, plasma tv fridge, microwave and a cute pool with lava rocks. Not bad for less than a 100

Wanted to take the kids to Pismo Beach to get away from the Fresno heat. Granted this hotel does not have an ocean view, but during the week it's half the price of all the other hotels in town. Only three minutes away from the beach it's well worth the price. The have a free breakfast and when the weather gets to cold for the ocean they have the biggest heated pool I've ever seen. And with the money we saved on the room we were able to rent boogie boards and a bicycle built for four. The kids had a blast !!

Better than I expected for the price ($70). As others say, carpet is old and stained. Breakfast was a few levels better than anticipated. Ate early, so we missed the crowd and waiting in line. Both shifts of front desk personnel was helpful and friendly. The beach is probably around 7 minutes away. You have to jump on the freeway, but it's easy on and easy off at the next exit Northbound. Got sick the water was soooo cold. The hot tub was the best thing, since it had two waterfalls in it, with a lot of power coming down, which offered a free massage on the neck and back after walking on the cold beach. Lucky I hit it when there were no children, which will come. Our room was right on the path to the pool and the traffic was constant at night coming back and forth. The Outlet Mall is right there around the corner- easy walking distance.

Good price for the money. Located right next to the outlet, you can even walk over there. Breakfast was simple but good value, but lots of people around 8:30 in the morning so could not find a place to sit. Room was clean but the bathroom smell like someone was smoking there before (this supposed to be non-smoking room). The front desk attendends were very nice and friendly. I would stay there again for my next visit to Pismo Beach.
