“Best budget place in Pismo Beach”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012

For a budget motel in Pismo Beach, this is a nice place to stay. The owners are doing a good job of keeping this place up to par and we really enjoyed our stay there. Pismo is not a cheap area but to find a nice place at a good price is rare. The only issue I had with the motel is the fact that the pool is not heated. It looks nice but the temperature in Pismo does not get that hot.

Room Tip: Small rooms but well kept

A very nice hotel with a great location,nice clean rooms and very friendly staff.
Our room was nicely updated....flat screen tv, granite counters in the bathroom, refinshed shower, comfortable mattress and chairs.
Access was very easy from 101, motel is within walking distance of restaurants, bars and the beach. Property was clean, well lighted outside and parking area seemed secure.
Room did not have AC, but a stand fan was supplied. I was concerned that room might be noisy due to highway proximity, but it was not a problem.
The staff was very friendly and helpful, made us feel welcome.
Will stay here again for sure.

We where late returning from a fabulous Kayaking tour and the staff had phoned because we did not ask for a late check out. We left at 1pm and they where very accommodating. The only reason I would not give a excellent is because if you are a light sleeper you can hear your neighbors. No AC so we left the window open and I could hear them coming and going. Place is all nice and new inside.

The only thing that could have made this better would have been a ceiling fan since it doesn't have AC and the room gets a little stuffy since the breeze had to come from the window to the bathroom. Staff was very nice. Bed was comfy, close to many restaurants and shopping. Walking distance to beach. Breakfast wasn't bad. You could even make waffles if you wanted.

The Ocean Palms Motel was one that we had picked using advice on Tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. The location is good, a 5 mins walk to the beach and restaurants. The room was clean and the staff were chatty and friendly. Considering it's location, the free Wi-Fi and breakfast, it's a good deal. WE would definitely stay here again and we recommend it to anyone staying in the area.

Room Tip: Although it's on a major road, there wasn't any noise when we trying to sleep.

Me and my wife decided to stay at this place, we were surprised with the new rooms, they are very clean, comfy, new furniture looks great, carpet. They do have very big swimming pool. Also they serve waffle, milk and cereal, muffins etc. a complimentary breakfast. They do have nice garden grill , you get your charcoal n food. We weren't prepared this time, next trip will do.
Great job..!

will def stay here again.
