“Beachwalker Inn and Suites”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2012

Stayed for 3 nights as a break from driving around Nevada/Utah/Arizonz/California.

Location chosen for it's name and motel chosen due to nightly rate and some favourable reviews (not on Tripadvisor though).

Main room was fairly large. Kitchenette looked to be recently renovated but the hob didn't work. Kitchenette had a fridge which was welcome. Also, please be aware that there is no equipment whatsoever in the kitchettes - no pots, pans, kettle, cutlery, plates etc. Consequently little point in being assigned one of these rooms!

The room did become very hot and the air conditioning was quite noisy. Had to weigh up the pros and cons of keeping cool or not sleeping........ the air conditioning won.

'Free' breakfast but available from the reception area which was tiny and it almost felt as if you were intruding if you dared to eat a cereal and cake there.

The pool was heated which was very nice but not too many recliners around the pool so you had to pick your time.

Sorry Beachwalker - I felt that we overpaid for what we got!

Great pool- so hot. Great bed, great shower, great room, great location so near the beach. Good service. Only complaint was thin walls so got woken up at 4am by some loud voices. But otherwise a great place at an amazing price!!!!

Room Tip: We had king size bed and it was huge! Just near the pool

My family and I stayed here for 13 days this January 2012 and had a great time.
We reserved the suite, as there are 5 of us, and we wanted to be able to cook at our room to save money on meals.
This worked ok. There are no pots, pans, spoons or forks available. No dishwashing soap or cloths.The coffee maker is a one cup and doesn't work that well. The refrigerator is a nice size and plenty big to keep milk, leftovers, etc., in it. The stove top works ok. I think it needs more amps to have it work real slick. Expect delays in boiling water! We finnally wised up and pre-heated our water in the microwave to get a head start on boiling.
We bought our stuff at Walmart and the Dollar Store so it worked out for us to cook in the room by buying our own stuff without much investment BUT we had to leave it there as we took an airplane to get to our vaccation destination.
When I asked the front desk about the pots and pan situation, she told me they didn't supply these things because it was stolen everytime they did. I think they could have the necessary items available if they wanted and just take a deposit on it, or have you sign something saying if you take off with the kitchen supplies you will be charged extra but.....
The beds are very comfortable, the cleaning staff is great and did a fantastic job with keeping our room neat and clean and supplied with towels! The suite we had is updated; it has nice flat screen tvs. The wireless works in parts of the room(by the windows); there is no wired connection so don't expect to do much work if you need a secured connection. The pool is very nice and they do keep it heated. The hotel was busy the 2 weeks we were there but the noise level wasn't ever a concern. We loved being so close to the ocean and walked to the ocean everyday for a morning walk or to play for the day! In fact, it is with in walking distance to a great downtown area of Pismo with reastuants of many different kinds, and of the best cinnamon rolls around!
The upper deck is a great place to enjoy that morning cup of coffee and if you can balance your food, eat. They could use a table or two up there. Plenty of seating though.
Being in Pismo was a great location for us to branch out to the surrounding areas. It is an easy hop, skip and a jump to the freeway to take you wherever you desire to go.
The continental breakfast consists of coffee, juice, danishes, and muffins. All good but we mostly ate our breakfast from our suite with the food we bought.
The Beachwalker is well worth your stay and at such a good price you will enjoy your time in Pismo and the surrounding areas!

Good location. Clean room on top floor, with just a whiff of cigarette smoke. Great mattress, but squeaky, rickety bedframe. Paper thin walls left us able to hear our next door neighbors and their television clearly. The toilet ran all night- had to turn off water to toilet in order to sleep. In the morning, the shower ran out of hot water after a few minutes. The affordable price does not make the negatives tolerable.

I read the recent reviews before booking and made my reservation not expecting too much for a one night stay. I had read that some of the rooms were refurbished, so I was keeping my fingers crossed I would get a good room.
Although the exterior is not very inviting, I got one of the refurbished rooms on the second floor in Room 202 facing the ocean, you can't see the ocean except a small peek view. I loved the Tempupedic King size bed!...the bathrooms have granite counter tops and showers with new bathtub and sink. The room also has a small refrigerator and microwave. There was a small coffeemaker but no complimentary coffee or coffee cups which was a little strange. There was also free WIFI which was another bonus.
The room is missing a few small details like the coffee and a trashcan in the bathroom. One more thing about this room; there was an adjoining door, and we could hear people talking of and on but not continuously.. I'm not sure if it was another room or some kind of storage room or office..
Another plus ...walking distance to the pier and restaurants. I would definetely stay here again!
