My Wife had a terrible experience while staying there . She and a friend both of whom are 79 years of age went to a funeral in Grover Beach a couple of months ago and after leaving received an additional bill of $100 for smoking marijuana in their room. Believe me they don't even know how to spell marijuana and... More

My husband and I were very pleased with our stay. The front desk staff was very welcoming. I told her that it was our first time visiting. She gave us a map of the area and recommended that we visit Avila Beach. She informed us that the restaurant next to the hotel would give us a 10% discount when showing... More

Stayed here for an overnight stay, and the room was clean, property was nice. The swimming pool area was very nice, and the pool was clean and water was nice and warm.

My son and I visit the Pismo Beach area pretty regularly to ride ATV's. We try to stay at various hotels in the area each time to look for the best deal. We previously stayed at hotels along Price Street (Inn at the Cove, Pismo Lighthouse Suites, etc.) which average about $250-$300 a night. Nice amenities, beach front properties, well... More

The staff was excellent! (Check-in, maintenance, and Check-out was pleasant and efficient.) Decent parking and typical, no-surprises, HIE breakfast were a plus. A noisy toilet that kept waking me all night, and a problematic television knocked down this review, for sure. Maintenance gave it a shot, but the screen would not show full-screen after several attempts to fix. Staff at... More

We were only staying 1 night and the place didn't seem too full, but I would have thought they could have given us quieter rooms. I know they can't help being in a construction zone, but our rooms faced the work area and the work went on all night. I did enjoy the quick and tasty breakfast bar,always a plus... More

We have stayed at Holiday Inn Express many times. This would probably be on the lower end of our HIE experiences. The place was a bit dated. Breakfast was really good. Bed was great. Watching TV was extremely frustrating. Very slow to search through channels.

This Holiday Inn Express is always consistently clean. We stay here often. The staff at the front desk are always very nice and friendly. We like the logistics of staying here. AJ spurs is close for a bite to eat. And the Manrock micro brewery around the corner is the best.
