Dirty smelly rooms, stains on the carpet and bedding. The owner had fumigated the place for cockroaches which added an additional fragrant smell to the overall stench of the place. We cut our losses and took a partial refund and stayed elsewhere for the night. Very grim!

The price and location were right but the room left a lot to be desired...recommend they invest in new bedspreads, and flooring. Next time I would spend more $ and get a nicer place, but considering it was sufficient.

If your looking for hotel that's close to the action and you don't mind the musty smell. This place is the place. We got a queen and it was a very small room but hay if your here at the beach staying in the hotel isn't what you'll be doing. Pool was very clean office staff was very friendly.

The owner was unavailable when we got there, but the person who was looking after it for them was incredibly helpful. We were given two rooms on the third floor, which takes you past the reception, as soon as the gentleman saw my father ( an older gentleman with some problems walking, especially up stairs ) he changed our rooms...

The bed smelled like pee. Toilet seat was not screwed down, no air conditioner. Stains on all pillows, towels. The faucet in the tub was hanging off. The fridge was dripping some fluids. DIRTY STINKING ROOM!

When we arrived we didn't have a reservation and the man in the office was very friendly and helped us check into a room quickly, he told me if I paid cash it would be 20$ cheaper than paying with a debit or credit card and I appreciated the tip, he also mentioned that our toilet seat in the bathroom...

This place is an average spot for a weekend. Breakfast is small array of choices. Best part is the front office person for her great attitude. Electronic door lock is nice. We did not try the pool. A good place to stay in city of Pismo Beach.

We stayed at the Blue Seal Inn in August 2015. Or, rather, we checked in and left. For $300, we were given the "family suite," which consisted of three double beds. Initially, we were willing to pay because of the location. BUT, after we checked in, we were beyond disappointed. The bathroom was not clean. Moldy shower current, broken fixtures,... More

Overpriced and the rooms were not very clean. The rooms look old and I can imagine that this hotel hasn't been refurbished for a long while. Stayed for one night and we were happy to leave again the next day. Wouldn't recommend it!!!
