“nice newer hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Stayed here twice during our trip. Very clean rooms, staff was very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast was great with a nice selection of food. Easy to get to from 101. Not very far from the beach. Can't really find anything to complain about. Would stay here again for sure.

Room Tip: 4th floor is actually the main floor. 2nd floor is on the pool level. Weight room on 2nd floor and b...

The hotel is in a great location close to the freeway and close to plenty of places to eat and shop. Very clean and well maintained. The staff are friendly and helpful. The pool is fairly decent size. The beds are comfortable, and linens are clean.

Our extended family spent two nights here and couldn't be more pleased. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate us and make our stay a pleasant one. We surprised the Café staff the first night by showing up with 12 people for dinner (they normally serve just a few couples at night). They immediately moved around furniture to make room for us, and served wonderful food at great prices. It was much better than fighting the crowds and long waits in town. They also allowed us to take over the lounge the second night, so we could all visit. Free coffee and popcorn were provided. The rooms were lovely and immaculate and the breakfasts in the morning were fabulous! I'd stay here again in a heartbeat!

Front desk too busy to be helpful, average rooms across 101 from the beach. Weird set up with food downstairs from the lobby, no coffee in the lobby in the morning but you can make coffee in your room. Gee, even my review is boring. We liked Pismo, next visit we'll stay closer to the beach. Oh, my husband wants me to add that the mattress hurt his back and he ended up on the sofa. I guess that means we definitely won't stay here again.

Be warned, it is not on the beach; however, this is a nice place to stay when you are in town. It has a very nice pool. And they have soundproofed the rooms to minimize the impacts of noise from the hallway.

Room Tip: Have a room that faces the ocean. I forget the floor numbering, but it is weird and you don't w...

We drove up the coast to see some friends that were visiting from the east coast. They chose the hotel and so it was a nice surprise. I thought the location would be a disappointment because it wasn't on the beach but that was fine. It is a quick ride to Pismo. Our room was clean and comfortable and spacious. I thought it was a good value and would definitely stay here again.

We love this hotel! New Year's 2012 and 2013 were spent here by my fiance and I. We loved the location, right by the outlets and short drive to the beach/downtown Pismo, and the staff has always been so helpful. LOVE this hotel and everything it had to offer!
