My family and I visit the Cottage Inn at least once a year. Their grounds are beautiful, including a well-kept, garden area overlooking the ocean. Personally, I find the view from the oceanfront rooms more scenic than when I stay in Maui. The rooms are not too large, but extremely comfortable. It would be nice to have more than one option of pillow, but most should find them comfortable. The in-room gas fireplace makes provides a great touch during winter. While the rooms do not have air conditioners, I have never had an experience in which I needed one. Simply open the windows and take in the fresh ocean air.
My kids especially enjoy the expanded continental breakfast, which includes items like pastries, bagels, oatmeal, fruit, and make-your-own waffles. Plus, you can either eat inside, with plenty of tables, or outside on the patio, with the partial view of the ocean. They even have high-chairs for the little ones. Also, they offer cookies in the lobby in the afternoon from a local bakery.
The service is another quality of the Cottage Inn. The frontdesk staff is very friendly and is willing to help with ideas for dinner or directions. They are equally helpful online with securing your booking preferences. I have found other members of the hotel staff to be friendly as well, greeting us while walking to our room.
Overall, the Cottage Inn is a wonderful hotel to visit. It is not large or extravagant, but offers a calm and relaxing environment. I would strongly recommend it. If you are staying in Pismo Beach, the Lighthouse Suites and Cottage Inn are the best by far. I believe that the Lighthouse Suites offer some bigger accommodations with multiple bedrooms, but the Cottage Inn has left with me the most memorable experiences.
