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.

I would have never thought there would be rooms like this in Pismo.!!! When we first arrived the light didnt work, after that the next problem was the sink leaking water. The bathroom is like in a closet. When I turned on the other light switch by the sink the tv cut off. The heater didnt work they gave us... More

This place is a joke!! DIRTY, DIRTY, DIRTY. The most awful motel experience of my life. I can't believe they rent rooms out to people what a joke. I suffered by having to pay a $25 cancellation fee for deciding not to stay in that infested room. Don't trust booking.com and don't EVER stay at the SEA GARDEN MOTEL!!!!!! Joke!

It was my first time visiting Pismo Breach and couldn't have spent a better weekend. This hotel, what a fantastic view of the ocean. Clean room, hospitable staff, and again, the VIEW! Very comfortable and just exactly what I was looking for for a weekend getaway.
