I stay here every time I go to Pismo Beach. The hotel sits right on the beach, and is walking distance from the pier. It can be pricey, but that is typical for beachfront hotels in Pismo. If you want to book a hotel during a holiday weekend or even in the summer, you need to book in advance, as this one fills up quick. Make sure and try the clam chowder restaurant on the pier called Splash!
