The room had a great view of the ocean with some of the rocky cliffs in the background. There is beach access if your up for a small hike down. The rooms were very nice with cozy beds as well as a fridge and microwave. Breakfast was included and they had a waffle maker which was delicious. There is a... More

Enjoyed staying at the Inn at the Cove for three nights midweek recently. This was formerly a Best Western. The rooms are comfortable with plenty of space and well thought out amenities such as a desk where I could blow dry my hair and put on makeup while my husband used the shower. The patio had higher than usual chairs... More

This was our first time stopping in Pismo Beach on our way to Santa Cruz and we chose the right place to stay. The location was perfect, right on a cliff with easy access to a lovely walk. You could even walk into town. We had our dog with us, so had to stay in the dog friendly rooms, which... More

Wonderful location. Hotel room entry doors do not close easily or automatically. A couple times I left the room thinking the door was closed and it wasn't. The breakfast was very plentiful and had quite a variety. It was nice to have tea and coffee available in the afternoon.

Every Room has a outstanding view of the ocean and nearby cliffs. Our Room was clean and modern. The Staff were very helpful and friendly. The grounds and appearance of the hotel are outstanding. The breakfast buffet met all of our needs. The hotel has some of the best views available at Pismo Beach.

We stayed here while dropping our son off at Cal Poly. The view from our room was fantastic, the pool is WARM which is really nice and the hot tub lovely. The bed and pillows were super comfortable and we hardly knew anyone else was there. The staff were very helpful and moved our luggage when we decided to stay... More

The front desk staff was very helpful, friendly and prepared. The young man who helped with the breakfast set and clean up was a kind, courteous and... More

My wife and I toured northern California. The staff was beaten only by the view from our room. It was great to leave the slider to the balcony open and fall asleep to the waves. Breakfast and coffee on the balcony was great.

The fishermen are taking over the property. We understand that the hotel has to supply 4 parking spots but we saw at least 8 non guest cars in parking lot. We also saw one of them empty car ashtray in lot and two others throwing trash from cars in lot. So unfair to paying guests. Someone needs to police this... More
