3 adults in 2 rooms stayed for one night. First impressions was that the guy on the desk was grumpy! However when you get talking to him he's actually quite funny and a nice guy. Check in straight forward. Rooms were spacious and clean with 2 double beds. Would have preferred one king or queen size bed but this was... More

It was move-in weekend at CalPoly so there were no rooms to be had in San Luis Obispo, so we went down the road to Pismo Beach. The Ocean Palms Motel is a perfectly nice little motel. Everything was clean, nothing was broken, the staff at the front desk was helpful and friendly. The marble shower was huge and inviting.... More

Breakfast is not worth it. The guy at the front desk never smiles. Room was ok but no air-conditioner or hair dryer. WiFi was unstable Cheapest hotel in the area. Nice location, only 2 blocks from the beach.

Helpful, nice staff. Clean room and very nicely refurbished facility. Fair price for a clean room in the area. Limited selections for breakfast, but ok. Pismo beach is a lovely place. We met friends there that stayed at the rv park. Perfect weather and stayed an extra day because everything was so pleasant.

This was a good stop over along US 1. The rooms where clean and the beds where comfortable. There was no AC unit, just a fan. Left one window open to get the breeze, glad there was one! Not to thrilled with breakfast in the small reception area. Just grabbed a coffee and left. There was a waffle maker and... More

We stayed mid-week & they had the lowest rates. It is small, but clean. It is a couple blocks from the beach. The free breakfast is average - just prepackaged muffins & danish along with 2 types of cold cereal & a waffle iron. There was coffee & oj, also. The pool was nice, but nothing special.

The owner is a very nice man. All rooms towards Highway US 1 and therefore noisy! Rooms very simple with just 2 beds that are probably not even 1.50 m large (in Europe this counts as a single bed) with tiny bathroom with very, very small towels for showering and for 4 people just 2 handtowels and 2 flannels). No... More

A great spot right off the highway and close enough to walk to the beach, which is beautiful. Good sized rooms, clean, reasonably equipped. Did not find the welcome particularly enthusiastic and breakfast was somewhat limited. The pool is great though, much appreciated after a long day's driving.

We decided to give it a shot as rooms were limited in the area for when we wanted to stay there. Rooms were clean and comfortable, It was a short walk to down town, maybe 5 blocks, adequate parking and a nice pool area. Gotta admit, the owners are not overly friendly, and I felt the continental breakfast should have... More
