Came for a wedding and reception was at the hotel. Everything was clean and comfy, will return for sure. The staff was very helpful when asked for towels, directions, water, or whatever. Slept like a baby, the beds were great.

A bit pricey but it's right on the beach. Rooms are big and comfortable. Very clean. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Great location. We used it as our base camp since it is so close to the lighthouse, theater, and other places of interest.

Absolutely beautiful room with ocean view, nights quiet except for the waves easily heard and helping us go to sleep. Small town beach atmosphere without the huge summertime crowds, but still warm and close to good food. Edna Valley wineries a short drive away with wines that continue to improve over past decades. Tucked away from the bustle of Pismo and Shell Beaches.

Really nice property, good sized rooms, comfortable beds/linens, breakfast was quite tasty. Non-existent view from the first floor, but we opened the sliding glass door and could hear the surf all night which was very soothing.

We very much enjoyed our stay here. The room had very good amenities - get an Owner's Suite if you are picky and you will be very happy. I ordered flowers because we were celebrating a 30th anniversary and they were absolutely stunning - much better than you would get for that price if you ordered flower delivery. Staff are friendly and accommodating too, and the afternoon cookies in the lobby are a nice touch. Be aware there is no housekeeping service for a two-night stay, though you can call for extra towels, etc. Those with mobility limitations should also be aware that even in ADA rooms the chairs on the patio outdoors are Adirondack chairs - hard to get in and out of! - you may be able to raise the seat enough using extra blankets and such which you can find in the closet, but this is not ideal.

Great small hotel across from the beach with a nice pool. Best of both worlds. Walk to shops and restaurants. It is a busy beach so traffic starts early in the morning. Nice breakfast offered to guests.
