Don't make the mistake of staying just one night! Too much to see and do in the area or just stay at the Inn to enjoy watching the whales and seals from the balcony. Never disappointed in the Martin Resorts, always meet our expectations on every level.

Great overall experience. The room was very clean and confortable. The second floor balcony overlooking the ocean was fantastic!! The staff very professional and accomodating. Better than average continental breakfast. There are plenty of places nearby for food and entertainment. The only minor issue was some road noise, but not really that bad.

A really unique place which I well situated and well run. The view is stunning. The rooms are beautifully decorated in a modern,fresh style. Access to Pismo beach is a short walk away. There is some noise from the freeway, so don't expect complete silence. It didn't disturb us at all.

Wonderful place to stay with a great view and gracious staff. Quiet, clean with great amenities and convenient parking. Great view overlooking the ocean rocks but you won't need to look out your window to find the rocks because your hotel bed mattress feels like it has been stuffed with them. Hardest mattress I have ever slept on. Be prepared... More

Awesome location right on the cliffs. Took my girlfriend here over the weekend and its proximity to everything and its amazing view made it all worth it. You are a little over a mile from the pismo pier and a short drive away from all of the great little tourist towns in the surrounding area. My only complaint is the... More

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.
