Old and dated hotel. It was clean and the staff was helpful. The location itself leaves a little to desired, however it is located in Pismoe Beach, which is beautiful and is very close to some excellent restaurants and a decent Bar.

Hotel 3 of a 14 hotel trip. Arrival was fine but then it went downhill. There was a disturbance which involved the police, someone clumped up and down the balcony all night and turned out to be security and as the hotel is on a main road some idiot had a trailer outside he kept revving up. We rung reception... More

I really liked the room besides one of the room cleaners busting in on us. The front desk worker was rude, she brushed you off so much and rushed your questions as if the hotel was SUPER busy. Cool room, great location by the beach but workers need to get a sense of patience.

I'm very sorry you felt rushed by the front desk staff member, even if we are SUPER busy guests need to be treated with appreciation and respect. I will make this issue a priority at our next front desk employee meeting and do some retraining with all our guest services associates. I will also speak with housekeeping about taking a... More

This is the first and last time we will stay at this Quality Inn. We reserved a couple of rooms in February and were told by Rebecca that the rate was $166/room/night. When we arrived we were shocked to find the rate was now $290. After the desk staff heard our story they said Rebecca no longer worked there and... More

Firstly let me apologize again for the issue with the room rate, I would have loved nothing more than to have the ability to verify ever one of those reservations, unfortunately a single reservation agent may make 30 or more reservations per shift, and the system does not allow us to pull up all reservations made by a specific agent,...

My stay was a very comfortable one, from check-in to check-out. I had a hard time attempting to connect to the internet through the wireless internet, so I called the front desk and they said that I could go down to the front desk area and use their guest computer. While I was there, a front desk associate told me... More

Just off the freeway, but quiet. Great price. Close to shopping. Only 1 exit from the main Pismo area. Staff was friendly. Pool area was recently redone. Looked nice, but didn't go in. Breakfast was good --- actually had 4 waffle irons!

We were traveling up highway one to Monterey Bay and decided to start here in Pismo Beach. Pros: 1) Convenient location to Pismo Beach and Pismo Beach pier. 2) Good breakfast. 3) Friendly staff. 4) Great pool. Cons: 1) Very small and dark rooms. Smallest on our trip. 2) Walls very thin. Spent the night listening to someone clomp around... More

We decided to stay overnight in Pismo Beach, so we could spend more time on the coast but the room at the Quality Inn off of Five Cities Drive was dark, smelled musty and was not very clean. Our family reserved two rooms #306 & #307, next to each other and both weren't very nice. I found someone's hair in... More

Well... I'm glad you liked the breakfast, the sea air here does get some moisture into the rooms and even if spotlessly clean, on a hot day that will often lead to a slightly musty-costal smell in the evening which usually goes away after leaving the window open for five minutes. If you found someone's hair in the bathroom, that... More

Pool was the best feature! Kids loved the warm pool and we stayed until closing every night we were there. Breakfast was good, eggs were fresh. Enjoyed my stay and will stay again when I'm in the area.

Very glad to hear you enjoyed your stay! we put a lot into the making breakfasts great here, and yes, kids love the waterfall... At 10:00 PM the Night Auditor who closes the pool area becomes the most hated man of the summer. ;-) we look forward to seeing you again soon! More
