Travelers' Choice
Pier View Suites is a beachside boutique hotel in Cayucos, a coastal community half way between Los Angeles and San Francisco known as “California’s last small beach town”.

Each carefully designed guest suite features stunning views of the Pacific Ocean and downtown Cayucos, gourmet kitchens, fine furnishings, and upscale amenities including: bath and skincare products by Gilchrist & Soames, goose down duvets and pillows, custom spa robes, and a bottle of local wine with any stay of two or more nights.

Overall, we had a great stay at Pier View Suites! We stayed in townhouse A and the huge deck and ocean views are absolutely fantastic! You also get ocean views from the family room space which is really nice. Also, the customer service is great! Only negatives (and they are truly minimal) are that I wish the unit was more modern throughout, e.g., the bathrooms are small and older and I would prefer no carpet at all in the townhome. With that said, we had a great time and would come back again!

We stayed in Bungalow A for 4 nights. It was a great stay. The room was clean and up to date. The location could not be better. The balcony has a great view of the ocean and the pier. I also enjoyed that I could people watch those driving and walking up and down the streets. We used the seating area in the back of the hotel one night, it was nice to be able to get out of the sun, but still be outside with family. Will definitely stay again!

Stayed in the hotel for 3 nights in mid-July 2020. Given the COVID-19 situation, we liked that this hotel has contactless check-in/out and electronic locks controlled by iPhone. Also, after remodeling, they seemed to have added full kitchens in the rooms. This was something that we wanted to not go to restaurants. This feature is hard to find in any other hotel in the area. The location is excellent. The only reason for dropping a star was a not so appealing cabana on the balcony with the upholstery all spotted with wine spills. I would stay at this hotel again next time.

Dear Boris K, What a wonderful review! Thank you so much for choosing the Pier View Suites as your 'beach' home away from home. On behalf of the entire hotel, we cannot thank you enough for your kind words. Please accept our sincere apologies for the condition of your suite's cushions - we are currently having them reupholstered with luxurious new Sunbrella outdoor fabric. Until next time, we wish you nothing but the best. - Jason, Owner

Always our go to hotel to stay when in Cayucos. Amazing views, very clean, fully stocked full size kitchen, TV's in every room, which is a big plus with a large group, comfortable large living room. Regular coffee pot, so don't bring keurig cups. Water pressure in shower is on the low side and water temp was HOT, had to adjust often to get cooler temp. There were 7 in our family so we stayed in the larger suite. It did not have the cabana seating with large balcony but had 2 separate smaller balconies off of 2 bedrooms to enjoy the views. Still an enjoyable stay overall! Still our go to place to stay!

My wife and I stayed in Studio B for 3 nights on our 6th Anniversary. The remodel of the property is beautiful and it is more like staying in your own small apartment with an amazing view of the beach and pier. The outdoor spaces is a wonderful place to relax. Check in was a breeze and everything was done perfectly so we actually needed no other service for our entire stay, with the exception of the convenient towel replacement. The city is also the perfect launching point for exploring the area, including the Big Sur drive. You are close tothe convenience of Morro Bay, SLO and Pismo, while also being very close to the start of the Big Sur drive. Only Cambria is closer, but their beach is not like Cayucos. All in all, a surprisingly great stay. The only few changes I would make are: 1. The hot water, as another reviewer mentioned, is set way too hot. 2. The water pressure in the shower is too high, usually the opposite is the issue in a hotel, but this one is way too high. 3. Someone in their maid service must have washed the duvet because the down inside each square was formed into a ball. They should replace this. I highly recommend this property to a couple or family.
