“Its all about location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 19, 2014

Location is key here if you want the beach/pier atmosphere and plenty of restaurants to choose from within easy walking distance. Nice outdoor courtyard. Wifi only in designated area of property outside of lobby area. Walls are thin. Bring earplugs. Room is very sunny in the morning. Lots of stairs or you can opt for the old fashioned elevator---the kind with the gate that you have to close. Ask Robin about restaurants around the area...she's a real foodie and lots of fun. Plenty of hotel parking. We will definitely return to this historic property with smiles on our faces.

Room Tip: Try for a room on the top 4th floor so you don't get the footsteps above you.

We were happy with this find. Everyone was friendly, and the hotel was clean & tidy. Its location couldn't be better; it is within walking distance to the water and restaurants. The complimentary breakfast was more than enough to start the day. It's a great spot for Pismo.

Excellent service, perfect location in downtown Pismo beach, everything is in walking distance especially the beach which is the main reason for the booking. The room was clean, comfortable and quaint. Would definitely book here again.

This was a GREAT experience. The place was very nice, and comfortable too. It is rare to check in somewhere and instantly feel relaxed and at home. The location was great, as there were many placed to walk to. I should also comment that the staff was incredibly friendly. There was a nice little continental breakfast in the lobby where you can sit and chat with a morning coffee and bagel. I can't emphasize how great this experience was!

Thank you for the kind words. We do have a great staff and I am happy that you feel at home here. Next time you visit, please check out Cafe Mon Ami just across from the hotel lobby, as they have excellent breakfast and desert crepes plus all of you favorite coffees, lattes and cappuccinos.

I stayed here for one stormy night in February 2014.

I was checked in by a super nice guy to the two bedroom "Captain's Suite".

While a bit oddly laid out, with one bedroom accessed through a Jack-and-Jill bathroom, the beds were comfortable and the room clean. Updates include a newer mini fridge and flat screen TV's. Nice view too.

Parking was easy despite the central location thanks to a generous parking lot in back.

I would recommend this place without hesitation.

Also, we asked about motorcycle parking (for a future Oceano Dunes) and it appeared to be a routine request.

Looking forward to returning in the summer.

Glad you enjoyed your stay in the recently remodeled 'Captain's Suite.' We actually moved the front door and 'captured' a substantial amount of hallway and foyer to make this suite larger for some of the large family groups that stay here. It also has an adjoining door to the room next door, making the combination 3-bedrooms, 2 baths plus kitchen.

Thank you for staying with us!

The hotel is in almost on the actual beach. It's very close to the 101 freeway. Awesome view on the ocean.
I stayed with friends in a little annex (unit #C) that was in a fact a little apartment, with a kitchen and separate rooms. Very clean, comfortable.
Service was good. The lobby is gorgeous.
We had a great rate, probably because it's the low season.

For once I don't have anything to say, that means a lot!

Room Tip: Ask for unit #C, upper floor.

Thank you, Bernard. The upper deck C Suite is our flagship unit with 3 bedrooms, 2 baths full kitchen and living room plus the private deck. With the ADA compliant A and B suites down below it makes a great place for a family reunion or small corporate getaway. The private fenced in 'compound' area has a built in bbq and outdoor sink for the suites. And, of course this place is just a short walk from Harry's next door.

Come see us again!

I stayed in the 3 bedroom "apartment" that is separate from the hotel. The room was HUGE, with a fridge, tv's in every room and even a washer dryer. Everything was very clean, bed was comfortable, and while the styling made have been a little dated, it was still very nice. The free continental breakfast was a nice bonus too. My only complaint is that the free wi-fi doesn't reach all the way back to those apartments, but that really isn't much of a deal breaker. Also, the weather was rainy, so we didn't have a chance to really use the bbq or the deck to enjoy the great view of the beach and the pier.
