“Great service, location and view!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 15, 2010

We stayed overnight at the Inn and from the moment we checked in (and got our welcome cookies) until we left the next day we had a wonderful time. The check-in staff was great, our room was clean, the sunset view from our balcony was amazing and we were comfortable all night! The next morning we enjoyed a walk down the boardwalk and onto the Pismo Pier (just a block away) and we were sad our stay was so short. We plan on staying again real soon!

My sister and I stayed two nights in a spacious, adorable blue and white room with an ocean view, great breakfast (part of the deal) in their wonderful breakfast room complete with cozy fire and homemade waffles. Staff was friendly and efficient. My first choice in staying in the San Luis Obispo area. You walk out of your room and right onto the beach for a walk... how great is that?

We were looking for a pet friendly hotel and we found this one. We were a ittle disappointed that we couldn't get ocean front but our room did allow view of ocean on our ground level room. The room was huge and very clean. Will definitely put this one on our list next time we visit the area. The staff were all very pleasant!

I can sum up my review in one sentence: The Sandcastle Inn is a great little hotel. As a transplanted California native homesick for the beach, I was looking for a place right ON the beach on a recent trip that took us down the coast from San Fran to L.A. Not only was did our ground-floor room have a cute little patio complete with a bistro table & chairs, but the room was large and clean, with (expected but tasteful) beachy decor. The staff was fabulous.. so friendly and helpful, and the free breakfast buffet was the best free hotel-provided spread I've ever seen. Perfect place to stay if you want to literally walk out onto the sand almost from your room!

We just had a wonderful stay at the Sandcastle Inn. This is the first trip we traveled with our dog Buddy. I was so afraid we would get a crummly room that would smell ect. They warmly welcomed Buddy with a treat bag. Our room was wonderful with a great view. Clean and furnished beautifully. The hotel is right on the beach and around the corner from the shopes and resturants. We had a very nice time and will be going back!

LOVE this place--we drove the coast from San Fran to San Diego wanting to stay somewhere along the coast one night. Drove off at Pismo Beach... all the way to the sand expecting the hotel whose parking lot we entered would be a fortune. Not at all. The super-friendly staff gave us an amazing rate with a balcony beach view. Fabulous breakfast included, great walks on the beach and fantastic sea food! Traveling the central coast of CA? You MUST stay at the Sandcastle Inn! I cannot more highly recommend this spot.
