if you know what slum lords own, go to this place. I cant believe the price we paid for to stay here.. I would think this is more for a crack house or homeless shelter. This place needs renovated bad. Knocked down and start all over, maybe they can hire some real handy men to fix the electrical and walls... More

I have traveled a lot and have learned that cheap does not necessarily means bad. In the hotel / motel business cheap should mean simple, but always clean. I was very surprised with the overall conditions of the place, as reported by other reviewers. The most disgusting thing I noticed was the tap of the coffee "reservoir" used for breakfast,... More

I was surprised to see a shove and a full refrigerator in a small kitchen. The shove was like one of the pictures seen on this app. With foil over it. The refrigerator had some words on it. No A.C. but there was a white fan. I accidentally tipped over my nail polish and it rolled down towards the back... More

This was the worst experience ever!! The room smelled of mold and we noticed the carpet was wet. By the next morning, the carpet was soaked!! Apparently, there was a leak in the bathroom. We had to change rooms. We had asked for a non smoking room as our daughter is sensitive to smoke. She coughed all night long. In... More

We needed a place to "crash" so we could go to the annual Pismo Beach Clam Fest and this was one of a few places available for the weekend. It was a pretty basic, "no frills" motel but suited our purposes just fine for the following reasons: (1) location within town so you could walk to shopping, restaurants and beach;... More

This motel is overpriced, dirty, and is not customer friendly. No shampoo, there breakfast consist of boxed donuts, coffee only til 10am, parking was congested. The workers were nice but that's about it.

Nowhere is that far in Pismo so don't be attracted to 'close to everything'. DO NOT STAY HERE......worst place I have ever stayed and I have travelled in Asia where one could expect less than standard. It should be knocked down!

Aside from great location so close to the beach, everything else about it was terrible. The bed was uncomfortable, blankets stained, the wallpaper was peeling away, the floor was dirty and the shower water was always cold. Would have rather slept in my car than in their rooms.

The good: Never had an issue finding a parking spot; was only a couple blocks down the street from the water, could see the ocean from our room (#11); short walk to several restaurants and shops; the owner/manager was friendly and very patient when my boyfriend demagnetized his room key in the middle of the night; room/bathroom/sheets were clean.
