Best hotel in Pismo. Beautiful, clean, comfortable, and staff are wonderful; view from room is spectacular. Access to beach and sea caves are a short hike down to the bottom, but well worth it. Will return very soon.

Opted to stay here as a long weekend retreat alternative to Monterey county. Great price for the surrounding area and views of the Pacific Ocean. Customer service was average upon check-in. We had an upper level room with balcony which felt spacious for two; enjoyed the ocean view. There was a walking trail directly in front of our balcony but... More

We just spent one quick getaway night here and it was perfect. Rooms are large and newly decorated. I believe all rooms face the ocean with balconies. And breakfast was included and they have rooms for dogs too. Lots of other thoughtful amenities like tesla charging station, cell phone chargers available and friendly helpful staff . I would stay here... More

The Inn at the Cove is located directly on the ocean cliffs a couple of miles north of downtown Pismo Beach. The busy Hwy 101 ( which might as well be an interstate highway) is directly outside the entrance. So when you arrive you will encounter significant road noise. All this distraction disappears when you enter your room and see... More

The view was amazing , you could hear the waves inside your room. We chose to stay here for the view. I wish they have a restaurant or at least a bar. Breakfast was included, food was okay but the view from the dining area was beautiful.

I can't say enough about the Inn at the Cove. It was such an amazing surprise weekend getaway for my husband even though it rained! The staff is attentive and courteous, the room and grounds were immaculate and the view is 5 star. We will definitely be back!
