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

I stayed here for one night with my wife after a long day of driving. We checked in and felt like an inconvenience to the couple at the reception, the lady was pretty difficult and would not accept a credit card from my wife as the room was booked in my name. The bed was comfortable, bathroom was clean, however... More

We stayed one night during the week, its a great location. Only two blocks from the beach/pier. Walkable. The room was clean. The kids enjoyed the pool plus it was pet friendly so that was a major plus, will definitely bring our dog next time. 👍🏼 Would stay here again, great location + price.

The rooms were nice & clean with lots of fluffy pillows, I noticed new doors and double-paned windows which helped with the traffic noise. Bathroom looked like it had been updated with a nice shower and counter. Full refrigerator and areas for two people to get ready. We skipped the continental breakfast as it was less than average. The proprietor... More

We chose Pismo Beach to stop a night on the way. We liked the hotel for location since it's easy to find and reach and park. Owner or guy behind the counter might look not friendly with his brows tied many times no smiling, but he had service mind. We loved the hot waffle making esp. in cold January. We... More

This is located right off the highway and very close to restaurants, the beach and pier, about 5 a minute drive. Very friendly staff at check in/out. Minimal breakfast, with pastries, cereals and coffee. Small parking lot, but parking is free which is always a plus. For the price, it's a good value.
