Spy Glass Inn Had booked a room for a quick vacation and were pleasantly surprised with the inn and the view. I originally had booked a room away from the ocean but after seeing the place, upgraded to a room with a view looking over the bay. We were not disappointed. From our second floor balcony we watched whales spouting... More

It appears that the only rooms that are actually relaxing are the few that are facing the ocean. We thought we had booked an oceanfront room but were told we needed to upgrade at $60 per night for an oceanfront room. Our experience was of frustration & stress. We were finally given a room had a partial oceanview but a... More

We were traveling up the California coast from L.A. to Oregon and decided to treat ourselves well one night. We just picked out the Spyglass Inn online as we were driving and were glad we did. My wife called, got some wonderful advice and help over the phone from Julie, one of the desk clerks. We decided to spend a... More

My daughter, her friend and I were visiting the area for a tour of Cal Poly SLO and stayed here for two nights. I surprised them and splurged for the ocean view room. It was a bit pricey but so worth it. It was a beautiful place with very nice, clean rooms. We had a little problem figuring out the... More

Got the room facing the pool. The dam pool doesn't close at night. The dam kids still swim after the night fall and make loud noises. This could be improved by closing the pool after 8 pm. There is no air conditioning in the room, no pot to make tea. Totally not worth $200+. Will never stay here ever again.

We booked a oceanfront king room as we were escaping the heat of Southern California. The room was ready before official check-in time which we appreciated. Yummy chocolate chip cookies were also a nice treat in the lobby daily. The hotel has recently been renovated and it shows, in a good way. Our bed was so comfortable! We enjoyed reading... More

We stayed here on our way down to LA. We needed a decent place to stay at and Spyglass Inn did not disappoint. We were in a rush and checking in was a breeze. We got a sea facing room. Our 2 boys loved the room. Great amenities from Molton Brown and a lovely Keurig machine for the much needed... More

My wife and I stayed for two nights at the Spyglass Inn in Pismo Beach, CA., about two weeks ago. Along the coast Pismo Beach offers at least 6 hotels that offer ocean views. The Spyglass Inn is one of them. While the exterior entrances and wooden structure of their two story buildings are not the most appealing, once we... More

Wow! Thank you so much for the fantastic review! I am a firm believer that the sunset views from our bluff are some of the best in the world. Being able to enjoy that while you relax on our new hotel beds is just an extra bonus. I am so glad that you enjoyed your visit and I hope you... More
