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

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

Great place. I liked the location and the grounds were well kept. We only stayed for two nights but I would definitely go back. The views were amazing and you had easy access to the beach. The restaurant was great and the prices were reasonable.

What a rip off!!! I booked my room 3 months in advance--online it told me it was an ocean front room with 2 Queens. When we got here our room overlooked the PARKING LOT and dinky pool. This IS NOT why I put down $300!!! Shameful!!!! I was ONLY considering oceanfront rooms and was willing to pay for one. Keep... More
