Sweet little motel on the beach. Amazing location, clean rooms with recent upgrades. Get a 2nd floor room if you can. It is a motel so your room door opens to the parking lot but the beach is right there. Blackout blinds would be nice since the parking lot lights are on all night.

Horrible management!!!! We didn’t get the room that was advertised to us. Payed 700$ for a weekend stay to deal with the management yelling at us as soon as we arrived and told us “ You can not park in MY parking lot until you are checked in!!!!” . Mind you they had ALREADY taken the payment from the account prior to check in. Rooms were filthy and you could smell the gas from the furnace. He also accused us of having a pet in the room when we did not. The guy is totally a creep and watches your every move. Deeply disappointed and will never stay again. DO NOT waste your money!!!!

Michael and Bahavna took very good care of us. They are managers of the Dolphin Cove Motel. We loved how close the ocean was, they have the best sunsets, and offer complimentary beverages everyday in the office. Maids were attentive and asked if we needed clean towels, etc. daily. Restaurants were close by and they have a beautiful patio that faces the ocean, with grilling stations. I suggest upper floor rooms, since there are children with skateboards etc. that can be noisy in the evenings if you are on the ground floor. The boardwalk and 1200 ft. pier rebuilt in 2018 are right there, as seen in the photos. Fantastic Vacation!

Just stayed here on thursday Sept 17th. This place was very clean, great service and excellent location. My husband and I were very happy with our room. The king sized bed and mattress was very soft and comfortable as well as the pillows.

Clean, quiet motel right on the beach! Beds were comfy, check in was easy, parking was free, and did I mention it was right on the beach!! Older and smaller than most accommodations in the area—but a great value for a quick stay in Pismo! Also, walkable to all the things you’d want to do and see in the area!
