Travelers' Choice
Newly redesigned in 2020, 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”. It has gained notoriety among both international travelers and local explorers for its spacious bungalow-style accommodations, furnished ocean view balconies, and superb guest service. 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.

Lodi, California6 contributions
After reading so many positive reviews, my wife and I booked a three night stay in one of the studio rooms. The cleanliness of the room was impeccable. Sunlight streamed in from the numerous windows making for a bright, welcoming experience. We enjoyed the view from the balcony and the complimentary bottle of wine. Jason and his staff went above and beyond to try and make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Unfortunately, our time in Cayucos was cut short and we left after the first night. Jason worked with us and graciously made an exception to the standard cancellation policy. He was able to re-book the room for one of the two nights and to our surprise and delight, refunded most of what we had paid. I cannot thank Jason and his staff enough for turning what could have been a very expensive ordeal into an experience that proves there are still good-hearted, honest people in the world. Thank you Jason!

Hotel's Favorite
We stayed at Pier View on our anniversary trip and I just cannot say enough about this beautiful hotel, gorgeous beach views, easy access to the beach (where we spent most of our time) great restaurants and all of the boutiques that are connected to the hotel. Just an amazing hidden gem. The room we stayed in was the studio with a view, I’ll start with the view since that’s what I was looking forward to, it did not disappoint! The view from inside the room was just stunning, open the curtains and your backdrop is the ocean, for as far as you can see. The view from the balcony made you feel like you were right there, you could hear the waves crashing at night.The balcony was huge, had a huge sofa daybed with plenty of seating, the sunset from our balcony was breathtaking. The room itself was amazing! It was the perfect size for an anniversary getaway, it had a full size kitchen that was not only functional, but beautiful, with everything you need to cook. The bed was so comfortable and roomy, the hot tub in the bathroom was the perfect way to end our very busy days. We loved the record player and the fireplace, the rooms seemed almost soundproof as we never heard anyone else while we were in our room. The owner, Jason was so accommodating and nice, he wanted to make sure that everything was perfect, you don’t find that often. The staff always checked to see if we needed towels or anything and when they left towels, they would leave them in a cute basket with a note, I will attach pictures of the notes we got while staying there. Customer service was impeccable from start to finish, we even decided to stay another night and Jason made it happen. We will make that our annual anniversary getaway from this point on and we will definitely be renting one of their larger units for family vacations. Well worth ever single penny.

We stayed in the pier view suites for two nights. the view was beautiful and we were on the 3rd floor, we were a bit bummed to find there was no elevator so be prepared if staying on the 3rd floor to carry your bags from second to 3rd floor as there is no ramp from 2nd to 3rd. The building is older than we expected but the interior has been recently remodeled, the balcony needs a good pressure wash, the kitchen was very large & it was nice to have a fully functional kitchen during our stay. The mattress for the bed was very comfortable but there were barely any pillows, they were comfortable we just wish there were twice as many. The one thing we thought was odd was the balconies are open to the public hallways and each other - when we first checked in someone walked around to our balcony thinking it was someone else's room and freaked us out so we definitely shut all the blinds when we went to sleep. The TV was tiny and in an odd corner but the fireplace and record player were very cool touches. Overall it was a nice place to stay and we would happily stay again or recommend it to others.
