We came and stayed at this hotel for 2 months. The hotel staff was truly centered on being helpful and kind. the room was cleaned everday, breakfast was consistantly good. lots of choices. It is very family friendly. Seriously, the staff went above and beyond to help my family. The grounds are lovely and the pool is a good size for younger kids.

Hotel's Favorite
Everything about this hotel is wonderful; the views, the spacious living area and kitchen in each suite (including fireplace), the excellent restaurant, the extremely helpful and accommodating staff - especially Kami and Julissa. I have been here several times for family business, traveling alone, as well as with my husband and dog. Always perfect! I usually stay at Four Seasons or St. Regis hotels so Dolphin Bay is a bargain without sacrificing quality or service.

We love going to Pismo Beach at least once a year, but this time was especially great as it was our son’s first time here! Wanted to thank Dolphin Bay for the amazing suite we stayed at. The views are unreal. They were professional, attentive and made sure we were taken care of the whole time! Great food at Lidos restaurant as well!

Excellent stay at this hotel. Right on the beach. Gorgeous views of pacific from our balcony. Rooms are huge. Every amenity thought of, and just a phone call away if you need something brought up. Can’t wait to travel up the coast and stay here again. Thanks everyone.
