3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

what a smooth check in, staff very welcoming, room nice size, beds comfortable and linen cosy.
nice place to stop on our trip. down the coast. you can see the gorgeous beach from the balcony, literally a one minute walk and you are on the sand. nice walk to the pier, wonderful wonderful coastline. loads of eating places 5 minutes walk, plenty to choose from.

very nice stopover, it being so close to the wonderful beach is a real bonus for this place.

EXCELLENT location--we were literally a staircase away from the actual beach and that was definitely the best part about this hotel.
OK room--it was clean, the pillows and sheets were alright, they've got heaters too, microwave, closet space, coffee maker. the walls are thin though so, you can hear the people next door, below or right outside.
OK service--staff seemed friendly enough and were helpful when our key was malfunctioning.
GREAT price--paid only $80 a night for a clean room and an amazing location!

I would definitely return to this hotel!

Walking distance. To the pier and beaches the strongpoint. alternative newer hotels were a lot more expensive or a lot further away. It's a sleepy town but clearly weekends are full on with the beach loaded with people. We had a handicapped room.. Still not sure how you use a shower chair in the shower which is over a bath. Breakfast was complimentary three sorts of muffins, juice and coffee nice realtor toast. They have brownies for free at the. Oh tee for afternoon tea. All the counter staff were cheerful and helpful, the place is just tired. If our room was a bigger one .. Humm.. We could hear the upstairs neighbours chundering through the night.. Must have been a bad prawn.. And the we could hear the neighbOurs each side as well..

Room Tip: Check the room out first. There is bound to be better ones than what we had.

Dear Moriac,
Thank you for the review. We agree with you, newer hotels are much more expensive and much further from the beach/downtown area. We’re sorry you didn't enjoy the city of Pismo beach. We are a small town, but many people come here for just that reason. We are sorry you had loud neighbors. In the future please let the front desk know, so we can discreetly and respectfully handle discourteous guests. We hope you give the city of Pismo beach another try.

This hotel is at a great location along Pismo Beach. It is about 200 yards north of the Pismo Pier. It offers great views of the beach and sunset over the Pacific.

The rooms were clean and well appointed. The beds were very comfortable.

The pool and spa sit right across the street and overlook the beach. Unfortunately, the spa was under reconstruction so we didn't get to enjoy it, but it will be nice when it is done.

The hotel itself is an older property but they have done a good job overall maintaining it.

Dear Stewar040,
Thank you for your review. We are glad you enjoyed our close proximity to the pier and our beautiful ocean views. We’d like to invite you to stay with us now that our spa is completely remodeled. It is a gorgeous seven person spa with enough jets to relax every muscle in your body. Thank you so much for acknowledging all our great amenities. We hope to see you again soon!

This hotel is a great place on the beach. It is nothing special, but it is simple, efficient and clean. The beds are not the most comfortable, but they are clean. The showers are not the best, but they have hot water. The best place at the hotel is the pool, or the rooftop place for breakfast. With the regular horrible weather in Pismo, it is a good thing that the pool is blocked from the wind. Some years the pool is heated, and other years it is not, Management if you are reading this, you should always heat the pool!
If you are arriving to the hotel after midnight, triple check with the hotel that they are aware. Last year my parents tried to check in for my husband and I since we were going to arrive late and they said that everything was fine. When we arrived there after midnight, they had sold our room and we had to sleep on cots in my parents room. Definitely not the most enjoyable night sleep, for anyone involved. The next morning I went to the lobby prepared to battle with the front desk and then they just comped the room for the next night without having to fight at all.

Dear Alykeany,
Thank you for writing a review. You said the last time you stayed with us was in August of 2012. A lot has changed since then. Most people come to Pismo to enjoy the wonderful weather, we’re sorry the weather hasn’t been that great every time you’ve been to Pismo. Our pool and spa are always heated, and if for some reason it doesn’t seem as hot as you’d like, please let our front desk staff know so we can fix it immediately. We have new euro-top beds and a brand new state of the art spa. We’d like to invite you to stay with us again to see all of the changes we have made.

Cozy, Comfortable, Clean.
Those three words pretty well describe our room. The added bonus was a view of the beach! The employees at the check in office were very pleasant and professional. We will definitely stay at Edgewater Inn on our next visit.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that has a view of the beach from the balcony.

What do you expect for this price? Rooms go for around $100 on weekends and much less on weekdays. You are almost on the beach and minutes from restaurants and shops in town. Walk down a flight of stairs to the sandy beach, soak in the spa or swim in heated pool facing the ocean, or hear the sound of waves at night. Rooms are somewhat dated, but comes with a microwave, coffee maker, hair dryer, mini frig. and a flat screen t.v. Nothing special about breakfast, just oj, coffee, tea, hot chocolate mix, and some ordinary muffins.

Room Tip: If you want an ocean view, get a room on second floor facing ocean or pay extra for a balcony room...
